Welcome back to our weekly feature rounding up the newest games on the App Store and Google Play Store.

The most interesting mobile game news of the week turns out to be about a bunch of old console games. Sega just launched its Sega Forever subscription service, providing a Netflix-like experience for its console classics.

There's some other interesting stuff out too, even if retro console games aren't your thing.

Have you been playing anything else new this week? Do share with the rest of us in the comments below.

Altered Beast
By Sega - download on iOS / download on Android

Altered Beast hasn't aged half as gracefully as Sonic or many other Sega classics, but nostalgia cares not for reason. Rise from Your Grave!

Comix Zone
By Sega - download on iOS / download on Android

One of Sega's weirdly ambitious diversions, Comix Zone is an arcade beat-'em-up with a strong comic book art style.

Kid Chameleon
By Sega - download on iOS / download on Android

Kid Chameleon was Sega's weirdo platformer ying to Sonic's mainstream platformer yang, featuring a character who could transform into a samurai, a rhino, and even an axe maniac.

Phantasy Star II
By Sega - download on iOS / download on Android

Sega's Phantasy Star series is highly revered and sadly missed by a certain generation of gamers. Phantasy Star II's epic world and plot are far more overtly sci-fi than the average JRPG of the time.

Sonic The Hedgehog
By Sega - download on iOS

Yes, Sonic was on mobile before. But this new Sega Forever edition is free and apparently fully optimised for the platform.

The Little Acre
By Curve Digital - buy on iOS

Charming point-and-click adventures aren't exactly rare on mobile, thank Gilbert, but we're still excited about The Little Acre coming to mobile. Expect hand-drawn visuals, a beautiful score, and a unique setting.

Carrier Deck
By Slitherine - buy on iOS

Hardcore strategy master Slitherine returns with a time management game, of all things. Mind you, it is set on a Nimitz-class nuclear-powered supercarrier. As you were.

Age of Rivals
By Roboto Games - buy on iOS / buy on Android

A digital boardgame that describes itself as an anti deck-building CCG, which means you'll need to be far more adaptable than in the likes of Magic and Hearthstone.

Race Kings
By Hutch Games - download on iOS / download on Android

The latest game from Smash Cops developer Hutch Games looks to be a twist on the CSR approach to multiplayer racing, but with the emphasis on extreme drifting rather than drag racing.

Touchdowners
By Colin Lane Games - download on iOS

You like Wrassling? Dunkers? How about Battle Golf? Golf Zero? Of course you do. Touchdowners is by the same developer, and it looks like an American Football version of Dunkers.

Dark Beyond
By Oliver Papp - download on iOS

Dark Beyond gives you a bunch of pretty coloured circles, all drawn together by gravity. It appears you need to destroy these and form combos.

Flick Champions Extreme Sports
By Nawia Games - download on iOS / download on Android

Nawia Games has been turning out fun casual sports games for years now, but the latest Flick Champions turns extreme. Think parkour, wingsuit, climbing and, er, paintball.

Starsceptre
By Richard Morgan - buy on iOS

An old-skool shmup with novel tilty directional controls and - yes - manual shooting.

The Mummy Dark Universe Stories
By Night School Studios - download on iOS / download on Android

This movie tie-in looks way more interesting than the Tom Cruise vehicle it's attached to. The developer of Oxenfree has used these raw materials to make a narrative adventure game.

Panthera Frontier
By Ayopa Games - buy on iOS

Panthera Frontier is an FTL-like spaceship survival game where you must manage crew members, maintain systems and improve your ship. It's got nothing to do with Thundercats or heavy metal. At least, I don't think it does.

Mystic Guardian : Final Quest
By Buff Studio - download on iOS

Got a hankering for some '90s JRPG grinding? You might be interested in Buff Studio's five-years-in-the-making love letter to spiky hair, large swords, and hit points.
