It’s that time again folks! If you love infestations of things and homicidal cats as much as I do, then you’re sure to dig the latest episode of the Dream(pod)cast!
In it John Doherty, Scott Morrison, and yours truly discuss what may very well be the greatest puzzle game that Sega has ever conjured up, Chu Chu Rocket. Along the way we talk about excursions down the Oregon Trail (or Organ Entrails, as we like to call it), discuss the very best Dreamcast commercials, and pit the intrepid little Chus against Sonic’s adorable blue sidekicks, the Choas.
Oh, and Stevie Grant of the Sega Addicts Kids Table makes a brief appearance to make a special announcement.

As Sega fans, we have all wanted it or still do. Some of us believe that it is inevitable for a predecessor to top the best console launch in the history of Sega consoles. I have come to accept that Sega may never return to the first party market, but that does not mean that I cannot imagine what the launch line-up of the Dreamcast 2 would include. Follow me into the year 2005, when a typical system’s life would end and another would begin. Sega is still a first party company, and the system war has become heated with four strong opponents. I submit to you my dream list of ten Dreamcast 2 launch titles. More >
Tomorrow’s Christmas and what better way is there to celebrate than a Christmas themed Sega Addicts feature?
In the past, Sega has released several Christmas themed spin-offs to their popular franchises. Christmas NiGHTS is one of the most popular and a game that is remembered fondly by Sega fans all-over. With that in mind we feel that it’s time for Sega to continue with the tradition and make some new Christmas spin-offs for another generation of Sega fans.
Hit the jump to see our top 10 nominations for Sega games that deserve a Christmas spin-off.
The Dreamcast classic Chu Chu Rocket! has now arrived on Android devices at the price of only one dollar. Sega states there will be a free version coming soon, for all of you who are uncertain about the quality of this game.
It seems to be the very same version that has been available for iOS for quite some time now. This rather faithful port of the puzzle game will also come to other platforms, though Sega hasn’t mentioned which ones. I’m speculating that 3DS and the Vita as well as Windows phones would be viable options.
We posted about the Art of Video Games exhibit not that long ago, but now Sega have revealed the full line-up of their games making an appearence at the exhibit. The full list of 13 games contains;
After Burner, Chu Chu Rocket!, Gunstar Heroes, Panzer Dragoon II: Zwei, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Phantasy Star, Phantasy Star IV, Rez, Shenmue, Sonic Adventure, Star Trek: long winded subtitle, Zaxxon.
Personally I’m happy to see Chu Chu Rocket and Gunstar Heroes make that list. Would have liked to have seen some Jet Set Radio but this is a mighty fine line-up!
I wish I was talented enough with Little Big Planet to do things like this. Hymanator has recreated a level from my favorite game ever Chu Chu Rocket. It’s pretty impressive to see what people can do with this game.
If you own an iPhone and STILL haven’t bought Chu Chu Rocket!, go on the app store right now and redeem yourself. The game is free for the day and is a must have for iPhone owning Sega fans. It’s normally $2.99 so grab it while its free!
If you don’t have an iPhone, go and buy one today. That way you can get Chu Chu Rocket! for free.
Many Android users have been envious as Sega continues to release more and more games for the iOS. Now Android owners will be able to achieve a Sega related fix. An independent developer has released Shoko Rocket, a clone of ChuChu Rocket, for the Android app store. The clone is quite similar to its source material, as players must guide mice into rockets while avoiding cats. The free app includes 180 levels and a level editor. In contrast, ChuChu Rocket for the iOS costs $2.99 for over 140 puzzles and online multiplayer.
Will you consider downloading Shoko Rocket, or are you hoping that Sega will one day support the Android platform?
Well that was fast. Despite being released only a short while ago Chu Chu Rocket for the iPhone is already getting a patch. The patch will fix some bugs, audio glitches and achievement issues. But there’s a twist! Because Sega are super cool dudes that love you, they’re also adding in 100 more levels! That’s right, almost an entire games worth of content will be added for free.
As of now, the patch should already be out, so the next time you turn on your iWhatever, to play some Chu Chu Rocket, you can expect some new awesome content. Nice one, Sega.
That’s right all you die hard Chu Chu Rocket fan, by the end of this month you will be playing everyone’s favourite mouse/spaceship/puzzle/thing game on your pad or pod. The release date Sega has announced is the 28th of October. The iPad version will also have multiplayer for you and 3 others to enjoy.
Unfortunately, I don’t have either one of these because Apple is the devil. But what do you think? Are you excited or would you rather play the Dreamcast version? Tell me in the comments, soul brother!
