It took me back to 90's, I listened that theme song agai wow 100% nostalgia. I remember when I was a little kid playing Mega Drive with my older brother. Very very nice, SEGA never dies! Thanks, greetings from Brazil

Decap Attack is a platformer where you attack using your head. The action is more slow paced then something like Sonic but just as fun. This game is Halloween themed so it was released just in time. Also they finally added a way for you to increase the size of the buttons.

Controles dont always work and are slow. Plus what is the bloody messages i keep getting one after another while im playing the free game? I mean come on. I know its free and i understand adverts are needed. But whats with the bloody messages while ya playing the game. Not good

Correction. Chuck didn't make cameo appearances in the Sonic comic. There was a regular Decap Attack feature in Sonic The Comic (the British version) throughout the 1990s in which Chuck starred. It was hilarious and went above and beyond the original game. That is where Frank N Stein's Welsh upbringing originated - not the game.

A good game that is a bit plagued with minor issues. Controls seem to be off, and not fully responsive. Gameplay is great, other than the fact it seems like the character runs too fast at times. Issues I'm sure can be addressed in future updates. Worth to download and try.
I have not installed the game yet however just seeing that this game is available on the Play store means a great deal to me. Thank you SEGA for bringing back a gem from my childhood. One very few even gave the time of day, yet was just as rage inducing concerning difficulty as far as any other platformer of its time..
i don't mind ads too much, but this is ridiculous. two fullscreen video ads before the thing even really started. this one can kiss my ass

Great fun game with a good feel to it. Unfortunately though the controls are very unresponsive and at times pretty much fail all together. If the controls were sorted out it would be a perfect adaptation of the original.

Controls horrible! But I love this game and Sega!!! Suggestions for future entries in Sega forever: Nights into dreams, Croc Legend of the gobbos, Sonic Adventure, The house of the dead, Sonic 3d blast.

Good job! This game actually prompted me to snatch a physical copy. I kept meaning to. Of course me buying a cart isn't a huge help to you. 🤔

Know what I like? This game. Controls like butter, a bit slippery at times but great nonetheless. Gameplay doesn't feel too far from the norm. The soundtrack is very reminiscent of Zombies Ate My Neighbors. However I have one complaint. 15 notifications, the same one may I add, in just the first five minutes of play. I can ignore the ads but the notifications? Come on guys. Still waiting for that Shining Force and Streets of Rage port and now that I think of it, see if you can bring out Crusader Of Centy
