I'm afraid not. Apparently there was a way to play some old Megadrive (Genesis) games using Gridlee but that apps gone now.

Just have to wait for Sega to re-release the games, i wish they could release a compilation app or simply release more old classics. Many of these games still play very well , graphics/sound might be a bit more outdated but the gameplay was superb.

I actually liked the Turbo Grfx (PC Engine) app but they never update that anymore. Really liked the Atari and Activision apps, lots of games there.

The Midway Arcade app could have been really good if they added more games to it. The Namco one is full of overpriced IAP's but has potential (the latest game they added was good). Capcom Arcade i used to quite like but it was a huge file and again they stopped adding to it.

Wish more and more companies would release compilation apps like the Atari and Activision ones.

Sigh... oh how I long for Hudson to update the Turbografx16 Gamebox... and for Sega to keep the Genesis games coming. One can hope...
