Play TurboGrafx-16 Games On Your iPhone

A TurboGrafx-16 app was just released on iPhone and is free to download. It comes with one game “Worlds Sports Competition”. You can buy other games at around 3 dollars a pop, the games included for purchase currently will be listed after the jump, most notably you can get Gradius, China Warrior, and Bomberman ’94. I hope you are ready to see some huge sprites on your phone because the time has come.

This seems odd to me since the TurboGrafx-16 did not have the largest audience in America that this is even coming here. It was fondly remembered in Japan as the PC-Engine, so that version of the app makes perfect since. The TG-16 was primarily known for it’s sprite scaling ability and while it wasn’t actually a 16 bit system it did have some huge sprites.
