The latest Sega Forever game is now available on Google Play. ESWAT: City Under Siege is a side-scrolling platformer/shooter first released in Japanese arcades as Cyber Police: ESWAT in 1989, and later modified and ported to the Sega Genesis. In the game players take the role of Duke Oda, a police officer equipped with a specialized combat suite and all sorts of futuristic gadgets. Duke is out to fight the gang violence that’s destroying Liberty City (no, not the GTA Liberty City).
How will Duke Oda stop gang violence? By shooting stuff. Players will need to get past enemies, fight large robotic bosses, and use their jet pack to get around. With lots of weapons, armies of bad guys, and power suits, ESWAT should instantly bring back memories of late 80s and early 90s action games, regardless of whether or not players played the original.
Unlike most Sega Forever titles, ESWAT: City Under Siege has Sega Genesis branding, and not Sega Mega Drive. This is because the Genesis version of the game is different from the version released in arcades and on the Mega Drive in Japan. As with most Sega Forever titles, ESWAT: City Under Siege is free with ads. Ads can be removed for via an in app purchase for $1.99 It is also playable offline and has controller support.
