iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Gunstar Heroes is another Genesis game brought to iOS by Sega, but its twitch-based gameplay often falters on the platform with its controls.

Gunstar Heroes Now Available

Gunstar Heroes has made the rounds since it launched on the Genesis back in 1993, and now it’s finally made its way to iOS. As of today Treasure’s infinitely entertaining (and exceptionally challenging) title is ready to kick your butt on the iOS device of your choice.

The game is run on a Genesis iPhone emulator, replacing the physical buttons of Sega’s controller with onscreen controls. While this is the standard procedure for most games ported to iOS, this is one of those cases where the lack of a physical controller may turn out to be a genuine issue. Treasure games are renowned for being fast-paced, twitch affairs with absolute precision required in order to succeed. Gunstar Heroes is already nearly impossible to beat with a traditional controller, so it’s hard to image that the game will work particularly well on a touchscreen. Still, we’re willing to give the title the benefit of the doubt right up until the point we hurl our iPhone out a window in frustration.

For those who must have you’ll be happy to know the game features seven full stages with familiar bosses as well as two-player support via Bluetooth. It’s recommended you bring a friend along for the ride, not that it makes it any easier to win, but at least this way you have someone to share your frustration with.

For all its challenge Gunstar Heroes is still a terrific title and a classic in every sense of the word. If you’re looking for a real challenge and want a game on your iOS machine that offers a true test then this is easily the game for you. Just make sure not to play the game on a plane, subway or other form of public transit as your screams of rage may be misinterpreted by the other passengers.
