In the past year Sega has become a consistent source of Android games thanks to steady additions to the Sega Forever collection. The collection consists primarily of classic SEGA titles that have been released on mobile platforms to give a new generation of gamers a chance to experience some of the classic games of yesteryear. Today, run ‘n gun platformer VectorMan joins the collection.
Originally released in 1995 for the Sega Genesis, players take the role of VectorMan as he tries to take down an evil Orbot AI that threatens humanity in 2049. The game used pre-rendered graphics to create unique visuals, but for the most part it was always an action packed platformer. Players had to jump and blast their way across 16 different levels on their way towards taking down the evil nuke toting AI.
VectorMan has controller support and offline play, though a number of features are disabled when playing offline.
As with all Sega Forever titles, VectorMan is free with ads. The game’s ads can be removed for via an in app purchase for $1.99. Here is an excerpt from the game’s Google Play description, as well as an update list of Sega Forever titles:
– 16 toxic levels of run ‘n’ gun insanity! Combat waves of mechanized monsters in hellish future-world.
– Transform VectorMan into a drill, a bomb, or a mechanized fish to bring the robot tyranny to an end!
– The better you are, the more power-ups you’ll earn to give you the edge over a host of insane enemies.
