Decap Attack Likely to Join Sega Forever

Players will need to keep their head on straight for this, because the next game to join the Sega Forever collection on Android and iOS is likely to be the sidescrolling platformer Decap Attack. First released on the Sega Genesis in 1991, Decap Attack has since been ported to the Playstation 2, PSP, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC via Steam. It was originally developed by Vic Tokai Corporation. The game follows the adventures of the mummy Chuck D. Head as he tries to thwart the plans of the evil demon Max D. Cap.

How does a mummy accomplish this heroic feat? by running, jumping, and using his head as projectile, of course. Oddly enough, throwing one’s head seems like a more natural thing for a mummy to do than running or jumping. Nevertheless, Chuck will need to jump on enemies, platforms, and whatever else he need to jump on as he traverses the game’s levels. When that fails, he’ll need to use his head to defeat his adversaries, including a number of the game’s bosses.

Like all Sega Forever titles, Decap Attack will most likely be free with ads and an option to remove ads via an in app purchase. Sega Forever titles tend to also be playable offline and have controller support for anyone who wants to have a more authentic old-school experience on their mobile devices. The Sega Forever library currently includes:

The Sega Forever collection has been regularly updated with new titles since its launch in June of 2017. There is no release date for Decap Attack at this time. Based on Sega’s past release teases, gamers can expect the game to be available sometime in the next few days.
