Remember when you had to download a ROM to be able to play Altered Beast on your phone? Well, you no longer need any emulators of the Mega Drive or other video consoles because SEGA has finally released a version for Android smartphones and tablets (and if you want to play it on your PC there's no need to download the APK as there's a native version for Windows).
This beat'em up was released in 1988 for arcade machines and was a huge success on other platforms such as Master System, Mega Drive or Spectrum. The Japanese company has re-edited it within its SEGA Forever collection that includes remastered classic for mobile phones, including iPhone.
One of the best beat'em ups!
This arcade about hitting out at everything that moves set in the world of classic Greek mythology, with undead and other beings from the Hades, that will have to defeat in order to rescue Athena. It's a consistent and complex plot that's almost unbeatable that introduces us to one of the best games of the beat'em up genre: the main character will advance facing up against dozens of enemies that he will have to kick and punch to defeat them.
Action and terror in Ancient Greece.
