Devotees of classic SEGA games will probably need to have a bit of a lie down when they hear that SEGA has today released Ecco the Dolphin and Space Harrier II to the Apple iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPod touch. The release is part of the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive Classics series of apps being released this summer for iPhone and iPod touch. The games are available for $0.99/£0.59 for Space Harrier II and $2.99/£1.79 for Ecco.
Fans will fondly remember Ecco as the young dolphin who got to spend his days merrily galivanting around the ocean, bursting through the waves and generally having a blast swimming around, until one day a freak whirlpool took away his home and left him all alone. It's your job to help him find the clues scattered around the vast ocean, across 25 gorgeous levels, that will lead him back to his family. Sing to communicate with other sea animals and perform flips to catch oxygen.
Space Harrier II is set in the year 6,236, and features Space Harrier, a hero who, armed with just his trusty laser, is on a mission to defend Fantasyland from the enemy hordes. Lead him across 13 stages and 2 Bonus Stages. Use either your iPhone's accelerometer to tilt your device, or the virtual D-pad, to blast the alien hordes, and face off against 13 bosses until you meet the boss of bosses, Dark Harrier.
Can't believe how good both these games are looking, here's hoping for more iPhone/iPod touch releases soon.
