Decap Attack Review

This is one of the best platformers on mobile. The controls are great if you can deal with touch controls and it is great for Halloween. If you love Halloween, it’s a no-brainer (no pun intended).

We love this classic.....

I can’t even believe that Sega is still this cool. This is the best platformer Vic Tokai ever made.....better than Psycho Fox, the spiritual predecessor to this game.

The level design, the controls, the soundtrack, are all awesome. There’s lots of fun to be had here. The only real draw back is that the reskinned graphics (it was reskinned into a horror game after Vic Tokai lost the anime license associated with the Japanese original) are a little redundant in terms of color and some of the foreground platforms and objects blend in with the background.....but once you get used to it its all good.

You have to love the crazy monster movie-style characters though. This game has a lot of heart and I honestly like it much more than any of the Sonic the Hedgehog games.

If the Sega Forever library is going to have more hardcore games like this then consider me sold.

NOTE: this game absolutely requires, in my opinion, that you play with a good MFI controller. I wouldn’t even attempt it otherwise.

seen your butts ,

Great game

this is the best game I ever played. Every thing is great from the music to the art style. And please make other classic games on mobile like ( Ecco the dolphin ) please put Ecco the dolphin on mobile.
