Dynamite Headdy is coming to blow up your smartphones

When I saw the PR e-mail from Sega about Dynamite Headdy joining Sega Forever, my mind went to straight to Decap Attack. I have no idea why, but for some reason I've confused the two games over the years. Anyway, you can now download Dynami...

Do you remember?: Comix Zone

When we were young teens, me and my brother laid claim to the basement. The rest of the house was neat and orderly, a pastel world of floral designs and tasteful drapes. But, the basement was ours. A savage land of hand-me-down sofas, coffe...

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 joins Sega's free mobile game initiative

Sonic has had a bit of a crazy year. While Sonic Mania was well received by both fans and critics, Sonic Forces is a bit of a mess. Some people can dig it, but the general consensus seems to be that the game was a missed opportunity. Why no...

Ristar brightens up the Sega Forever line-up

Once upon a time, the Sonic Team didn't make solely Sonic the Hedgehog games. In the later days of the Genesis, Yuji Naka (Sonic's creator) tried his hand at creating a new mascot for the company (reworked from the original c...

Speed past your friends in Sonic Mania's competition mode!

With how popular split-screen gaming used to be in the retro days, its crazy that Sonic never really had a competitive multiplayer mode outside of Sonic 2 and 3. I have a lot of memories of wanting a full on co-op experience like that, tink...

Celebrating 25 Years of Ecco the Dolphin
