Now if they would just add Desert Strike to the list...

I bought Sonic 1 and 2, now they've abandoned those versions (and inevitably future support for new Android releases) in favour of ad-infested 'free' versions. Shameful.

If you have an android SONY TV, android phone...could you potentially hook it up to a playstation dualshock controller to play?

Yes, I do this with a dualshock 3/4 and USB on the TV

Have these been free before anyway? Or have they just become free but with IAP (payment to remove non-SEGA adverts)?

Yes

Since starting Sonic 2, I have spent more time looking at ads than playing the game. It also has frame rate issues on my iPhone 6, which is hilarious. I regret spending the time installing all these games.

No bloody way. Can you explain exactly how? These apps won't show on the TV play store I don't think, so would it take casting from the phone?

Good luck timing your return shots on Virtua Tennis without a game pad.

There are a few ways to do this. If you check out YouTube about side loading. Or upload the apks to Gdrive and install them

Some games work with Shield too. Just logon via Google Play on your phone/pc and select install to Shield

This needs to be released for the Switch, that would be freaking awesome.

Requires an Internet connection to verify even if you purchase the no ads IAP.
Kind of misses the point of always having the games with you. Will only work on a phone. WiFi tablets on the move are out.
Can't support that business model.

Minmin guard?

Anyone tried it

Somebody informed me you can 'restore purchase' so you can get the ad free vesions back. Download either Sonic 1 or 2, go to the in-game settings and then press 'restore purchase'. Unfortunately, the apps haven't been updated for new mobiles. So I can't download them for my Samsung S7. It might be helpful to others though!

I normally go to Apps and games I have already purchased via the playstore on the television in "my apps" and then install them from there. I use it to play all the SNK games that go for cheap on the playstore mainly like metal slug and king of fighters. I just plugged the controller in via USB and they just ...work. I have a Sony W8509c if that helps (I hate it overall)

DL'd Streets Rage yesterday. Surprised how well it worked. Excellent stuff

To avoid ads on Android without rooting your phone, look for DNS666 (if you're anxious about sources, it's on the F-Droid store; it can't be on the Play Store because Google don't generally allow ad blockers.) Seems to work on Crazy Taxi for me?

Original music back on a Crazy Taxi! Yay!

Are the original destinations on there?

You mean like Tower Records etc? No.

I'm surprised how well it works on touch screen actually.

They should release Crazy Taxi 2. That is my favourite! Bought a Dreamcast especially for that.

Can I use a PS4 controller on these games?

It's like hanging ad banners all over the statue of liberty or stone henge. So wrong.

Just get sega emulator from playstore. Every sega megadrive game ever free .

Most of these haven't aged well and makes you realize how far gaming has come. Also playing on mobile is unplayable as I tried Streets of Rage and the awful controls were harder than the actual game.

I mean sure, things are free when you pirate them. But this is HotUKDeals not The Pirate Bay. Would be cool to support Sega, the company that made and/or published these games and is going through hard times. Or pay for the Sega Forever games then play the actual games with a decent emulator - best of both worlds

The current Sega isn't the same Sega that made these games. That Sega died along time ago. Now they are a shell of a company riding on nostalgia.

Will pirating their games improve that situation? They're not what they used to be but they did publish Sonic Mania, which is a sign that things can improve. If they stay in business.

Sonic Mania wasn't even developed by them. It was made by a fan and even then it was recycled alot from the original games. Sega are a company that should be put out of their misery so pirating their games is doing them a favour so they don't milk the same damn games until the end of time.

One of the best games ever.

It was funded and published by them, the only company with the rights and inclination. Sonic Mania was pure fan service in many ways but it’s also a best-selling, critically acclaimed game that was nominated for many awards and enjoyed by a lot of people. Sega are becoming a poster child for listening to fans, and giving their blessing to the modding and remixing of their games.

But hey, I’m sure the world will be a better place when they’re gone and the last two publishers on Earth are “DMCA” Nintendo and “$100 horse armour”EA-Blizzard-Ubi-Activision-Soft :P
