Nope, II is the only one that has been ported to iOS, and it's been around for several years. But, designed for iPhones, so if you're using a iPad, unless you have made sure you include iPhone apps in your search, it won't show up in the results. This Is how it's always been. There is one Sega game that hasn't been mentioned yet, but has been around for several years also: Shining Force. But like PS II, it's also only iPhone.

I am wondering if this release changed that. I loaded AppStore on my iPad and went to Sega games section clicked on For IPad and downloaded. It seems to be no issues with the iPad screen. Mfi working great but man I forgot how unforgiving this game is! I went and grabbed a second knife for my main character then went to the next town and came back to house to get the extra guy(I remembered that much from when I was kid) and I am still getting my but handed to me. Thank god for the clone ships! LOL, can't tell you how fun it is to be playing this right now.

Yay, all my SEGA apps now have ads!

EDIT: Well, not that many of them I guess. Some, like Sonic Spinball crash on loading.

EDIT2: This game tells me ad-free mode has already been activated, but is still offering me the "no SEGA ads" IAP...

EDIT3: I have to admit I like the modern SEGA evaporating to the classic pixely one... Wish I could get crisper pixels in game though...

Finally, I can get this game again. I always put off getting it in the past and when I was about to get it, it was removed from the app store. It's still my favorite RPG game ever and the whole reason I bought a Sega Genesis back in the day. I still have my Genesis, the game, and hint guide that came with the game.

No, it's a Master System game. So SEGA would have to make or license a new emulator instead of whipping out their ancient Megadrive emulator from 10 years ago and pretending it's new. :P
