    Overall, Gunstar Heroes was a pretty good experience for me. It does a fairly good job of keeping itself fresh without losing its authenticity. While there are definite places in which it can improve, I think it's a great time-passer and is a good addition to anyone's app collection.

    Another Genesis game brought to iOS by Sega, but its twitch-based gameplay often falters on the platform with its controls.

    A true platforming classic and having a version you can play on the go is great, but the controls leave a lot to be desired.

    A highly challenging game that is hampered by poor controls.

    Gunstar Heroes is an amazing game, but you'd be better off playing it on a different platform if you can.
