8bitdo SF30 Pro doesn't work with this or any other Sega Forever title. Only face buttons register, no D-pad or Start button. No problem with controller in any other apps. The emulation and cloud saves are great, and I like the menus. Would buy if controller worked.

The game is great but when I'm holding the fire button down it would randomly start moving my character to the right. Please fix this since this bug is very annoying especially when at a boss fight.
Squid 4
Absolutely incredible. Just like every other SEGA Forever release, my only issue is the touch control. If you're going to play this spectacular game, you NEED a physical controller. Please either get an Android controller or play the 3DS version, touch controls ruin this game.
Hobo 4
Great gameplay, great visuals, and great music. I have the same complaint as many that the touch controls are a bit too imprecise for my liking. I will, however, say that is fine in this instance since I can actually, properly use my PS4 controller making for great precision and overall a great experience.

I used to play this when I was a kid this games amazing thanks for bringing it to android. The sean guy below is an idiot this is nothing like Mario. I don't think he has played either one of these games.
Konrad 5
Game is brilliant and well worth the dollar to remove adds. Controls can be tricky and takes getting used too but can be solved with a controller. Thanks heaps SEGA
Francesco 5
Great! I like it! Really well done, and it's original Sega! I hope to see more games coming! How about to create a good joystick SEGA for this? Playing with the touch is completely bad...
Bryan 5
My favorite game as a kid and this is still fun to this day the only thing is the buttons make them triangle form big A,B,C buttons and the directional pad a 🕹️ arcade style would really help with the gameplay
Michael 5
Game is incredible! I never played it as a kid, but wow I wish I had. I have managed after some time to beat the 1st level, it's kinda hard but so fun and the continue system is really player friendly.
E. 5
Like so many others, this is one of the games that should have been totally revamped almost immediately and shuttled to the 32 bit and 128bit platforms.....
Jacob 5
One of my favourites. Get a controller. Love the save function and the online co-op is a very smart move. Am excited to play with others. I hope Sega will create a link to a community forum so those that downloaded it can play together.
