Ratings and Reviews
I’m a massive Golden Axe fan, and this is pretty good. The sound isn’t always 100%, and the controls take a bit of getting used to, but the emulation’s otherwise pretty good. But then, this being the Mega Drive port, it should be flawless given however many times quicker the processor is in an iPhone. I think it would’ve been nicer to have had the arcade port instead, as arguably more people may have played this version already! I certainly know it inside out, whereas my 10p coins only got me so far aged 7...
One more thing - paid £1.99 to have the ads removed only to find you still get a quick single-screen ad on startup, which I’m a bit miffed with.
Compared to other Mega Drive classics this is awful
There seems to be a real issue on this game with the connection between the movement of the character and the D-Pad when playing it on an iPhone. The Pad doesn’t seem to pick up all the movement you try and register. Might be different on an iPad with a bigger screen but this game has gone from being one of my all time faves to nothing more than an annoyance on iPhone. Streets of Rage or The Revenge of Shinobi don’t carry the same issue on iPhone.
Overall a lazy conversion. If you can play with a MFi controller it might be good, but without its nearly unplayable.
The touch areas are really, really small. It’s not responsive at all. No control configuration/customisation possible. Since Golden Axe requires precise and very responsive controls (doing the double tap to perform the shoulder bash is absolutely horrendous and luck based here) it makes it nearly impossible to not be hit constantly.
Unless using an external gamepad I would avoid this as much as possible.
