Have always loved this pinball/platform hybrid.

Now I've got the song stuck in my head...

LoL, I didn't expect Spinball. Looks like a bit of a wasted opportunity though. A newer made-for-iOS Spinball with proper touch/tilt controls would have been awesome. One of these days, Sega really needs to start making games, not just porting them.

They've made a few good'uns, like ChuChu Rocket.

But these emulated games cost SEGA almost nothing, so as long as the sell, I'm sure they'll still release them.

This will be an insta-buy when it reaches US stores. If the controls suck I still need this for nostalgic purposes

I play to win...

My favorite Sonic game by far. Although I'm only committing to buying Aralon tonight, this is priced low enough that I might just grab it too. Might give me something to do while Aralon downloads.

Personally, I won't fault Sega for emulating its back catalog; I just wish Atari and Activision would jump on the same bandwagon. You get the emulator functional and then it's "free" money.

Favourites: KotOR, Gridlee, iDOS, Deus Ex: The Fall, Gamebook Adventures, Baldur's Gate EE, GTA: Vice City
