Glitch, please help
Hey! Best app I’ve spent money on (Also the only app I’ve spent money on so far tbh, lol). Having lots of fun, way easier now than it was when I was 3 or 4 and playing on my Sega genesis (though still challenging!). That said, I’m leaving 4 stars instead of 5 because I can’t find a place on the app or your website that addresses the issue I’m currently having.
I reached the death egg zone, both as knuckles and as sonic+tails (well, at that point in the game it’s really just sonic but I digress). I was playing and dying (lol) as sonic, and I thought that it would be easier as knuckles since he can grab walls, so I beat the winged fortress zone that I was on and began the death egg zone as knuckles. I ended up dying again anyway because it’s still difficult (especially when the spikes explode out lol), but once I died, when I went back to my save files, both files showed as sonic+tails save files. I tested, and indeed, I’m sonic on both of them now. I’m not sure how this glitch happened or how to get my save file where I was knuckles on the death egg back. Would appreciate help, idk what to do beyond closing and restarting app and turning the phone off and back on. Will delete this description and make this review five stars if you can fix that or if the app somehow fixes its own error.
Sonic 2 original vs sonic 2 remake
1: The original sonic 2 special stages were just kinda 3D but you couldn’t see what was in front of you until I came very close to you and you had little to no reaction time but the sonic two remake special stages are real 3D and do you have lots of reaction time and can actually get chaos emeralds. 2: The original Sonic 2 does not have a save feature in the remake of Sonic 2 you have a save feature and you can play with no save and the save feature saves your chaos emeralds and it saves by act 3: in the original Sonic 2 hidden palace sound was scraped and the only way you could access it was by a cheat device in the Sonic 2 remake you can get to hidden palace zone by falling in to the infamous death hole i’ll give you a clue what the Hidden palace zone boss is 🎺 4:The characters you can play as are sonic and tails or just sonic of you are in sky chase zone wing fortress zone & death egg zone oh for her knuckles if you lock on sonic 2 mobile on with sonic and knuckles but in the sonic 2 remake you can play as just sonic in the entire game or sonic and tails or just tails or knuckles or knuckles and tails 5: in The original sonic 2 You could only play with the Sega Genesis controller in the Sonic 2 remake you can play with touch controls or a wireless controller
Sega Forever is Denuvo for iOS
The classic Sonic series was probably one of the first sets of games I've played, and they're probably why I love retro games. The Christian Whitehead ports for iOS are wonderful, and I'm glad to have the old Sonic games on my iPad. I hate it, however, when Sega adds unnecessary garbage like Sega Forever to their games. The mobile port of Sonic 2 was just as great as the original with controls if not better. Since that Sega Forever update, the controls just broke. The d-pad would have a delay of 1-5 seconds before either changing directions or resetting when I let go. The jump button no longer works half of the time, forcing me to die over and over. Even the momentum came off as a bit broken. This makes the whole game nearly unplayable. Nobody likes losing control in a game, and neither do I. The ad issue was moot to me because I paid three dollars before the garbage Sega Forever update. This is why you don't let Sega mess with Classic Sonic. I'm not willing to buy another one of your ports or games unless I know for a FACT that someone more responsible is behind the controls. Get rid of the update! Go back to when it was run by Chris Whitehead. Only then will I put 5 stars, you money-hungry, thick headed, fools.
