Boardumb's comments:
This is an update to the original iPhone version from many years ago, so if you owned that you should be able to restore ad-free in this version.

Good news I owned this one back in the day so a restore should be good to go
I remember when I was a little kid I had a nes and my best friend had a sega and I went over to play this new game he had and it was space harrier I on the master system and I remember at the time being blown away by it
Now it’s a relic but a decent relic and this version is okay not great but okay and since I had it previous it’s free this time so all good

Did you ever try the 3D version with those headache inducing glasses? Now THAT was awesome.

I am just currently re-listening to the audio book 'Console wars' and the chronicles of the battle between Sega and Nintendo.

No, not really Music is fine. Please don't be hearing 16 beats to the bar chip drum as stuttering over Air 2 crummy speakers. Headphone will make cool tune be heard as intended.

This game just makes me want to play Burning Force again. Too bad they probably won't score a Namco game.

Having picked up Golden Axe this was a welcome addition.

However whilst it is enjoyable recreating the Megadrive experience I had with SH2 back in the day, the controls aren't that great. It's hard to get the joystick back to a deadzone. A shame.

The music sounded like a compressed audio file - is that an emulator running or is it a sample?

One thing was nice - I had notifications set to on and it reminded me an hour ago "Welcome to the fantasy Zone, get ready!"

I still prefer the original classic space harrier

Nice memory though

I used to love playing the arcade version....brings back some good memories. This plays alright....I think the d-pad needs to be bigger but otherwise this plays like it should. A great addition to the Forever collection for sure.
