Guide: Demons of Asteborg on Retro Handhelds

Nearly 33 years after the Sega Genesis released, we have a new game to try out! Demons of Asteborg released last month and can easily work in your favorite retro handheld. If it can run Genesis games (and the Picodrive emulator), it’ll likely run this game, too.

One thought on “Guide: Demons of Asteborg on Retro Handhelds

  1. With 351ELEC and Libretro/PicoDrive, the game isn’t saving or doesn’t have the ability to save it appears. It also bugs out with save states. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
