Super Monkey Ball 2 Sakura Edition now with Multiplayer Action

Posted by Lisa Caplan on May 1st, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

SEGA’s Super Monkey Ball franchise was just past its iOS popularity apex when they launched Super Monkey Ball 2: (Sakura Edition) in April 2010 as a universal game on the heels of the launch of the original iPad. The classic tilt-controlled platformer, however, sat untouched after that until last Christmas when it received it’s iOS 5 makeover. Now SEGA has updated the game again adding a new multiplayer option.

Players can compete against up to three friends via Game Center, each playing a different character: AiAi, MeeMee, Baby, or my favorite, GonGon. It’s a quick race to the finish line with the option to pick the level. Random matching is also available, but the wait can be over five minutes to find a single partner.

The new mode is welcome and may help revive Super Monkey Ball 2, but what doesn’t appear updated are the graphics. Here’s hoping for Retina display graphics in a new update soon.

Sega Puts 4 Games On Sale For Easter

Posted by Carter Dotson on April 21st, 2011

In the world of the App Store, any kind of holiday is a great reason for developers and publishers to hold a sale, and Easter is no exception. Sega's taking part in the festivities with an Easter sale of their own, with four titles taking part in the festivities.

Chu Chu Rocket! HD: The iPad version of this revival of the Dreamcast classic is on sale for $2.99, down from $4.99. If you're spending time with the family this Easter, you'll enjoy the single-device multiplayer for up to 4 players on 1 iPad. It sure beats having awkward family conversations. If you're alone this Easter, then online multiplayer is available as well.

Super Monkey Ball: One of the very first iPhone games, released back in August 2008, it's still a leader in the "rolling around monkeys encased in plastic balls" genre, and is on sale for $0.99.

Super Monkey Ball 2: Have you mastered the art of the monkey ball in the first Super Monkey Ball? Do you not play games that aren't sequels? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you'll be glad to know that Super Monkey Ball 2 is also on sale for $0.99!

Altered Beast: All I'm gonna say about this original Sega Genesis beat 'em up going on sale for $0.99 is that someone at Sega has a sense of humor. [To find out what he means, bug the author on Twitter: @wondroushippo -- Ed.]

All these games are only on sale until April 25th, when they will rise back up to their original prices, so act quick to take advantage of this sale while you can.
