Sega Forever: Classic games on mobile (FREE or $2 to remove ads)

So, this is launching today/tomorrow:
Games are free, but you can pay $2 for each game to remove ads.

SEGA® Forever™ is a free and growing classic games collection of nearly every SEGA game ever released from every console era – Master System, Genesis/MegaDrive, Dreamcast, and more. Available on iOS and Android mobile devices.
-Play free
-Save your game progress
-Leaderboard -- compete with the world for high scores
-Controller support -- fully integrated wireless Bluetooth controller support
-Offline play
-Games released every month; download them all!
http://forever.sega.com/

The website says the games are "out now" but when I click on the link to open the iOS App Store, it says the games are not available in the US yet.

The games will support bluetooth controllers (so you don't have to touch your screen like a crazy person)

First five are:
Sonic the Hedgehog
Altered Beast
Phantasy Star II
Kid Chameleon
Comix Zone

With many more to come, and expansion to browsers/facebook/consoles if it is successful.

I can see why they'd launch this on mobile... but I'm not interested in buying these on my phone. They'd be perfect for the Switch, though...


I hope Shenmue I and II are a top priority.

Would love these on Switch, i'd probably pay $10 for it too. On the phone, even free, I hate touch screen controls and there's never an instance where i'd have a controller around.

Agreed. Touch screen controls make it hard to muster up much enthusiasm.

Dreamcast? Maybe I can hope for this one which would work well on a touch screen

That seems really cheap, is it 2 bucks one time, or 2 bucks a month to remove ads? Otherwise I don't see how this will be sustainable as they add games.

^ $2 per game. If a mod wants to change the title to make that clearer, please do.

Yeah I'd buy this on Switch but no interest in mobile versions of these games.

I will probably get this. I often find myself with about 10 minutes to burn and this would be a good way to do it.

If the purchases would transfer to the Apple TV too I'd buy a ton of them. No interest if it's only on my mobile devices.
