Netmarble's turn-based gacha RPG 'Phantomgate: The Last Valkyrie' is here

Netmarble doesn't have the greatest reputation. Thanks to its heavy-handed use of free-to-play mechanics and plenty of expensive in-app purchases, a lot of shade gets thrown its way, and deservedly so. That's why the release of its latest gacha RPG is a bit of a rare occurrence, it's actually not that bad. After a lengthy soft-launch period Phantomgate: The Last Valkyrie is finally available on the Google Play Store, and despite the expected downsides of a title like this, there's a lot of fun to be had. So if you are a fan of 2D platforming and classic turn-based RPG battles, you're going to want to give this a gander.

Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II re-released as a SEGA Forever title

Ah, good 'ol Sega, re-releasing what used to be paid titles as new ad-filled releases that contain the exact same game. The SEGA Forever program is rife with similar re-releases, so it's no surprise to see that Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II is the next to join the bunch. If you own the old version that is now delisted, you will still have access to the download, but updates are now out of the question, which means it's only a matter of time before an Android OS update breaks your old copy. Luckily Sega provides a way to remove the ads in this new listing, but I doubt those of you who just had a death sentence handed down to your old purchase are going to freely give Sega more money.

Decap Attack Classic is the latest SEGA Forever title to release on the Play Store

Sega's latest SEGA Forever release is a moderately unknown title and something of a hidden gem from the Genesis library. It is called Decap Attack Classic, and it is a classic 2-D sidescrolling platformer from the 16-bit age. You play the part of a headless mummy named Chuck D. Head, and it is your job to take on the underworld demon Max D. Cap. Despite the silly puns, this is a competent platformer that Sega has seen fit to release on Android. But the question remains, has it held up?

[Hands-on] Phantomgate, an RPG that mixes many genres into a cornucopia of fun

Phatomgate is one of those titles where I am not sure where I stand. On the one hand, it's clearly a free-to-play gacha game. On the other, it's a competent turn-based RPG with some fantastic platforming gameplay. Then you have its high production values to take into consideration, which makes it all that much more difficult to label Phatomgate as simply a good or bad game.

If you couldn't tell from the title, this is a sequel to the first game in the series, Shinobi. While many feel that the second game is the best in the franchise, the question remains, how does it hold up on Android as a Sega Forever release?

The original Ghosts 'N Goblins comes to the Play Store for one dollar

As part of its recent push to mobilize its classic arcade portfolio, Capcom has dusted off 1985's famous action-platformer for an Android release. Ghosts 'N Goblins, first released in the arcade more than 30 years ago, now has an official port in the Play Store going for 99 cents. It's playable on just about any phone or tablet running Android 4.1 or above, but sadly, not with Android TV or Bluetooth controllers. As some of the game's bad guys would say: boo.
