SEGA have produced some timeless classics over the years- and they're never afraid to recycle them over and over again for some extra bucks. Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch are the latest platforms to enjoy the Sonic treatment, and you can now pick up some golden retro oldies at a knockdown price courtesy of the 'Back to School' iTunes sale. This price reduction will run until September 1st, offering up to a 67% discount on the following gaming apps:
- Golden Axe £0.59
- Sonic the Hedgehog £1.79
- Sonic the Hedgehog 2 £1.79
- Ecco the Dolphin £0.59
- Streets of Rage £0.59
- Shining Force £0.59
- Super Monkey Ball £1.19
- Super Monkey Ball 2 £1.79
Naturally you'll need iTunes to peruse and purchase SEGA's sale items.
So there are some classic games and household names up for grabs... but there's also a catch. Many of these games suffer from significant emulation and control problems that render them nearly unplayable. Always have a gander at the user comments and reviews to size up whether a game's worth grabbing even at the reduced price. As a good rule of thumb, an on-screen D-Pad is usually a clear sign of inevitable aggravation.
Super Monkey Ball 1 and 2 avoid the hateful control issues by using an intuitive tilt interface to manipulate the game world. Considering the bargain prices and the sheer amount of fun that they're capable of providing, these two cutesy games are easily the standout bargains of the bunch.
