Ratings and Reviews
Oh the memories!
For a free game, I'm pretty happy to play it and glad it was ported!
However, just because there's a higher audience in mobile games doesn't make it a good game for mobile. The only complaint I have are with the controls. But it's not the game's fault. It's a mobile port and these controls take a lot of getting used to. I'm used to using a controller and not having to look down constantly to make sure I'm touching the pad where as the controller I can feel the buttons and I know the direction I am moving the character. Instead of using an arrow pad, just let me move the character myself by moving my finger in any direction on the screen.
It's been ages and I can't remember for the life of me how to activate anything beyond a level 1 spell. There's nothing in the guide in the game or details within the app. Holding A does nothing but cast the spell. I tried pushing a combo of other buttons or using the arrow keys and I got nothing.
It would be pretty awesome if we can get a full remake of this game series. Not on mobile though. The controls would make me crazy.
I loved this game and grew up playing it on the ps2 which came with a bunch of sega collection. This game seems to be running smooth but the controls are not good
The controls are not that good in this port. There is this one move where you push the attack button and jump button at the same time to do a certain move but this port its hard to that move. Your previouse version of Golden Axe 3 on mobile had 100% excellent controls and had no problem with those. Please fix the controls!
I got the feels man
I can't explain how happy I felt playing this game, I played this game so much as a kid it made no sense. Thanks again for adding these classic's. I was wondering if you all were thinking or are going to add streets of rage 2, toejam & Earl and maybe eternal champions. I think your team can do it and if you add these in particular I can't even explain how many people would smash that download button even if it is just to say they have it on mobile
