Okay, so there's definitely some improvement in the emulation. I'm not getting any lag or bad sound emulation on iPhone SE, and there are now customizable controls. SEGA, no going back...okay? Keep building on this new emulator core!

Also, please...Streets of Rage 1, 2 and 3 ASAP.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

This is so much better. Can't wait for them to roll this upgraded emulator out to the previous releases.

Quick question do you need to pay to save the game? I'm using the free version of all the forever games and not one of them saves the game successfully.
