In case you missed it, SEGA recently added classic beat-em-up Golden Axe to the SEGA Forever game collection. You can check out the full press release for the announcement, as well as some screenshots, below.
Death Adder has invaded the castle and has taken the king and princess prisoner – now it’s up to you to get them back. As of today, Golden Axe has joined the SEGA Forever™ collection and is now available as a free-to-play mobile title with ad support. Those who dare can now download the game for free from the App Store for iPhone and iPad and Google Play Store for Android devices.
Golden Axe was originally released in 1989 for the SEGA Genesis™/Mega Drive™ and was created by Makoto Uchida who is known for having developed another famous Genesis/Mega Drive title: Altered Beast. In Golden Axe, players exact revenge on Death Adder by battling as one of three formidable heroes: Gilius Thunderhead the axe-wielding Dwarf, Ax Battler the Barbarian with a broadsword, or Tyris Flare the Amazon woman with particularly powerful spells. Collect potions and cast spells to battle your way to victory against Death Adder and bring peace back to Yuria.
With added features like leaderboards, cloud saves, and controller support, Golden Axe is the most recent addition to SEGA Forever, a growing collection of classic SEGA titles from every console era that are available free-to-play (with ad support) for mobile devices. Players who want to experience the games without ads can remove them for a one-time in app purchase priced at $1.99. SEGA Forever games will be equipped with multiplayer capabilities in a future update, so please look forward to saving Yuria with the help of friends, family, or even the person who sits next to you at work!
