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.

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.

Just what the world needs.

One year after the world saw the birth of an international icon, the fastest thing alive is back at it again with a new round of ways to end the plot of Dr. Robotnik. Sonic finally encounters one who has super speed just like him, but much more smarts and much less wits than Sonic. Sonic and Tails subsequently become the best known alliance in fiction that possibly is more popular than Mario and Luigi.

Let me get my biggest point out of the way. Casino Night Zone? That is a way to treat and get rid of a gambling addiction. It is one of my favorite zones in the existence of Sonic the Hedgehog. Only in this port is the zone improved. Also, Sega is quite cunning to have Knuckles as an available character, deeming it impossible to beat Robotnik in space due to the shortened height of Knuckles' jumps. In reality, it is easy to beat Robotnik as Knuckles. Quite a tricky move by Sega there. This game is just the start of a brand new day for the blue blue. The day has yet to end. There is nothing that needs tone brought to the attention of Sega about this app besides the fact everyone did a phenomenal job making this port.

Sonic the Hedgehog 1 was cool, but Sonic the Hedgehog 2 leaves fire in its footsteps. Play the game!
