    Pocket Adventure is fine, but it'd work best as a bonus to a general DIMPS collection, with the Advance and Rush games (+Colors DS).

    Neo Turf Masters is a must too, it's only a great little port of the Greatest Sports Game Ever Made :)

    I played Sonic Pocket Adventure almost as much as I played Sonic 2, 3K and CD back in the day, so absolutely. As said before, the level layouts are very different than their Genesis/Mega Drive counterparts, and the bosses are also (mostly) new. To add, the puzzle gimmick adds a whole new layer of level exploration and replay value. To me, Sonic Pocket Adventure is absolutely something every Classic Sonic fan should play through at least once.
     
  5. I think you're over-thinking this, SNK's re-released 3 of their own titles. Sonic Pocket Adventure was co-developed by SNK and Sega so I'd guess that it's pretty low on the priority list for them.

    Co-developed by SNK? I think that means the chances of there being a port means it's possible now. How possible is a different question.
     
  7. I mean unless SEGA for some reason thinks it’s not worth it, I see it as a good opportunity to sell the game to a broader audience, much like how they worked with Christian to port Sonic CD to consoles and mobile.. a small percentage of people had the game originally and I’m sure SNK knows it will be a top seller.. it can’t hurt to try and get a deal done

    I mean it's fine i guess, the art is cute and the puzzle hunting is a nice change. But the resolution is extremely low and the aspect ratio is pretty bad for seeing ahead of you. If they could somehow give the game a wider viewing angle that would be a lot more interesting.

    I think a person can dream, but not really getting it.... now
    Even if THEY were to realesed this at some point, I can see it doing kinda well
    They also wount know if WE speak "How about this?"
    Its a demanding game, maybe a remaster?
     
  10. With the recent influx of NeoGeo Pocket releases on Switch, I'd be shocked if Pocket Adventure doesn't get a release. I own it for my Pocket Color, but I would love to have it on the Switch especially with savestate support.

    I don't think that'd be shocking at all, Sonic games that aren't 1 and 2 seldom get rereleased at all, and Pocket Adventure is pretty obscure.
