If it wasn't filled with inApp and seemingly geared towards that... I would pay $1 for this game. It just seems aimed at the freemium level... and if it ever does go free then I'll give it a shot then.

I was a little surprised they came out not at 99 cents too. Segas latest games Zaxxon and Sonic both steal the names, but change the gameplay a lot. While both are ok games, they do both seem like freemium wannabees. So will they turn freemium? Probably. Zaxxon would make a great freemium game, it is pretty fun, but too bad sega is stealing franchise names for these games though. I would have liked to see a 3d side scroller shooter instead.

Now, I wonder what is next from sega, maybe an angry birds or tiny wings clone.

Probably so... and filled with inApp purchases.
