Ratings and Reviews
We love this classic.....
I can’t even believe that Sega is still this cool. This is the best platformer Vic Tokai ever made.....better than Psycho Fox, the spiritual predecessor to this game.
The level design, the controls, the soundtrack, are all awesome. There’s lots of fun to be had here. The only real draw back is that the reskinned graphics (it was reskinned into a horror game after Vic Tokai lost the anime license associated with the Japanese original) are a little redundant in terms of color and some of the foreground platforms and objects blend in with the background.....but once you get used to it its all good.
You have to love the crazy monster movie-style characters though. This game has a lot of heart and I honestly like it much more than any of the Sonic the Hedgehog games.
If the Sega Forever library is going to have more hardcore games like this then consider me sold.
NOTE: this game absolutely requires, in my opinion, that you play with a good MFI controller. I wouldn’t even attempt it otherwise.
this is the best game I ever played. Every thing is great from the music to the art style. And please make other classic games on mobile like ( Ecco the dolphin ) please put Ecco the dolphin on mobile.
Loved this game as a kid but this app has some serious glitches. The buttons will sometimes have a delay and sometimes pressing two at the same time will cause chuck to freeze up. The music can’t even consistently play with out freezing up. Would love to see the game play fixed 🙏
