Gunstar Heroes, one of the most highly-rated games for the SEGA Genesis / Mega Drive, has now made its way to mobile gaming, and it's completely free! With a dystopian empire set on world domination, a powerful lunar superweapon, and a crazed villain determined to bring the world to its knees, only you, as one of the two twin brothers, Red and Blue, can stop him. The game's arsenal is equipped with everything from flame-throwers to homing missiles and lasers, resulting in fourteen weapon combinations to destroy the enemy's headquarters, known as the Ark, located in space. This classic gamemode is part of SEGA Forever, an ever-growing collection of classical console games brought back to life on mobile.
You can choose from four different weapon types and create many weapon combinations based on your preferences, with local cross-platform multiplayer over local wi-fi. You can throw your partner at the enemy for a critical strike that doesn't waste ammo. With seven distinct game styles to choose from, starting from ancient ruins up to a vast space fortress, there are enormous locations to explore.
The mobile version of the game features ad-supported gameplay, and you can use the In-App Purchase option to play without ads. Additionally, you can save your gameplay progress at any point, compete in leaderboards with players worldwide and experience realistic haptic feedback with responsive button presses. You can use HID compatible controllers to play the game smoothly.
