Ratings and Reviews
We love rediscovering hedgehog history with this enhanced edition of one of Sonic’s greatest adventures. This game sizzles with all the sprawling levels and blazing speed you remember from the ’90s, but this classic platformer is better than ever on the App Store. With crisp widescreen graphics, tight controls, and awesome extra content, it’s just a blast.
Really, really good, but five glaring flaws are present
I got this game about a month ago, and it’s FANTASTIC. The graphics are incredible for all 4 versions of any level, the controls are tight, the time traveling mechanic is executed brilliantly, and the Time Attack mode will keep you playing for days after you beat the game once with either the Japanese or American tunes. I’d reward this game five stars-which I didn’t for the other two Sonic Genesis ports-if not for three issues. Like I said before, the controls rock, but you can’t change the D-Pad’s size or opacity like you could with the other two games. Palmtree Panic and Collision Chaos both have objects inside walls for whatever reason, too. Sadly, the bosses just aren’t good except for the sixth, the Metal Sonic race in Stardust Speedway. I won’t go into some long rant about them, but what I will say is that one of them is beaten by running to the right well. Strangely, you can’t play as Knuckles, unlike the other two ports. Lastly, debug mode is sadly unplayable. I really wish I could award the five stars the game deserves (the Japanese soundtrack is one star added on its own.) I understand the bosses can’t really be revamped, but if the other flaws I addressed were fixed, that would make the game much better in my opinion. This game is AMAZING and I’d hate to see an item box inside a wall ruin it!
Pretty good game
What a good majority of these kids don’t realize that this game was originally released on the sega cd back in 1993 which is where this remake originated from. And to answer a few questions: 1: To get tails beat the game for the first time and then start a new game as him ( He does not have cutscenes like sonic does and his ending does not change). 2: They won’t remove the metal sonic fight or add new zones because the creators of this remake want it to be as close to the original game as possible 3: To unlock all the secrets like D.A. Garden and etc go look at a different review also from what I know I think you will need to be signed into Game Center to get those secrets. And yes I understand the concerns with the ads but that does not apply to my because I just don’t lets ads ruin my experience with the game. Also don’t listen to some of the 1 star reviews if you want because a good majority of them are just 9 year olds saying and I quote “WoRsT SoNIc GAme EVAR” And yes that is how they spell ever. And I should have said this earlier but Tails is free of charge you don’t have to pay to unlock him. Also if you like the game have fun then.
