Pinball Dreams HD is definitely a step in the right direction.
First things first, apologies for starting our weekly giveaway a little later than usual. To make up for my tardiness, I've popped a copy of Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing into the prize-bag. Joining Sega's smash-hit Kart racer are the utterly thrilling Boost 2 and Pixeleap’s delightful platformer, Up To The Top. So what are you waiting for folks?
