Best of the Shinobi series, happy and surprised to see Sega put this out as they've been ignoring it since it first came out on the megadrive.

Want to like it but it lags and the saves don't work. The other games i haven't seen much lag, but come to think of it the saves dont work on them either. Anyone get it to work?

All I can say is YEEEEEEEESSSSSSS!! This is, to this day, my favorite game of all time. Brings back soooo many memories (I was a Genesis kid as opposed to SNES). Give it a week and Sega will fix it. I'm supporting all their re-releases to spur more classics and fixes for what's coming out. If u love these games, good or not, they'll only survive if Sega sees doem revenue to keep these devs going....that's what TA is for!

What a disappointment (but not necessarily a surprise) that this is laggy as hell and even the music suffers it seems on most devices! I really want to grab this, but considering what everyone here (and in the store) are saying about that, for me, at least, why bother? When (or should I say 'IF') they decide to fix this, I will definitely get this, though!

If you go to setting and change the classic to smooth setting the game runs a lot better and is playable. I hope this helps

Good tip, helps a slight bit, but on iPhone 6 plus here, and the framerate is still choppy. I threw $2 on this to support the devs fixing this issue. Also getting the choppy music. I hope they can sort this out....favorite all-time game, needs some love and refinement, soo close!

Same here this is one my fav too. I too own a plus found is more playable on smooth but still a bit choppy but a lot less than classic

What helped me hard reboot and no other apps running in background on smooth setting went a few levels where I wasn't annoyed
