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.

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.

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.

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...

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

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.

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.....

Great game from my childhood, but can't seem to get my Sony PS4 controller to work correctly. Please fix.

Was waiting for this to show up here since it was the best Genesis game easily & finally after months & months of waiting pretty much what I thought would happen happened. It's a great game, maybe in the top 10 or 20 ever made during the era, & it controls like absolute garbage here. I understand a touch screen will never replace proper controls but the fact of the matter still is putting it on platforms that are 100% touch-controlled means you have to make sure the game works properly with that control method first. I shouldn't have to immobilize my mobile device with a controller just to make a game work taking away the mobility of the platform to begin with. If I wanted to use a controller to make a game control properly I would play on another better platform for gaming to begin with. Period. The game itself is a 5 but the effort here is a 3 at most. Just really disappointing watching classics such as this, the Metal Slug games, the Mega Man games, so on and so forth turning out so poorly with all the technology we have now compared to the absolute archaic dinosaurs the games originally ran on. There's just no excuse for these games to control or run worse now than they did 25 or 30 years ago
