Good god this is an incredible choice of retro titles from the SEGA Genesis roster! I remember playing Comix Zone for hours trying to beat it all! The nostalgia overload is real!
Sadly I never had a chance to play Phantasy Star II growing up so I guess now is the right time to grab it on mobile. Still would be nice to play the original!
