Of all the games newly released on iOS through SEGA Forever, I think Ristar has come out the best. Granted, a big part of that is the improved emulator, but I also think that its mechanics and difficulty level suit the platform and its input methods better than something like The Revenge of Shinobi [Free]. The game itself is, in my opinion, an underappreciated classic from the Genesis library, the kind of game that could have been a big hit if it had only released a year or two earlier.
Yet, for mostly everyone else, you’ll be incredibly annoyed by Sega’s poor IAP system, designed to lock down the best mobile elements of the game, including cloud saves. Newer gamers will also be turned off by the game’s lack of tutorial, poor controls, and exaggerated difficulty level.
