  1. quinovin-avatar

    Most negative reviews be like: "I can't run this game on my Nokia from 2005 without it crashing! 1 star, despite the game itself being a flawless awesome port of a game from the 90s! It's not my fault for not getting a new phone, it's your fault for not making the game compatible with my ancient hardware!" Don't listen to these people, they're just angry old people who don't know the difference between their crappy phone not being powerful enough to run a simple game, and the app being buggy.

  2. Matthew Grimes-avatar

    This is still working in late 2019 on my Moto Z3 using a SteelSeries Stratus Duo bluetooth gamepad. It seems the more recent releases of retro Sega games don't support gamepads, not sure how we went backwards on this. Games shouldn't be delisted and hard to find but at least we can still get to our purchase. Kudos for that.

    The game is good but... There is occassionally a circumstance where the game pulls up a 404 error on a webpage for Ahnaguara Educacional. I couldnt find any connection between this or Sonic CD so i uninstalled out of fear for a virus

  4. byron floyd-avatar

    the game no longer works. I also notice that there is a Sonic CD version with advertisements on it ..I paid full price for this game.. and I want this game to work.. why is this game not working....and why the only way now I can play this game is through the advertisement version of Sonic CD.... like I said I paid full price for this game and I want this game to work...

  5. Roger MESSNER-avatar

    i am pissed. you need to gix this i brought this game already and for the longest time could find this verison in the atore until now and i had to download the classic one to get to this one . fix this now .. i am not paying again for something i already paid once for before it shuts down after verfiling and loading it .

  6. Jose Gonzalez-avatar

    Tried to play it (I even re-downloaded) it but it just keeps saying "failed to download because you may have not purchased." I'm udderly disappointed.

  7. Dillon Jones-avatar

    Great Port. Doesnt Work On My LG Q7+ Though. 😞. Opens Then Crashes.

  8. David Lee-avatar

    Nice software port to android. I have never really played sonic before until now.

    Worked ok on my old phone but won't work on my new phone. Can you please update the app?

  16. Retro Master-avatar

    Sonic CD is a beautiful product. The mobile version fixes all the collision detection issues from the original Mega CD version. Both US & JP soundtracks, unlockable Tails (who can fly, bliss) and alternative physics with no speed cap. Gorgeous looking zones, time travel and the UFO special stages now with a super-smooth frame rate. This is one of best 2d Sonic games ever made.

  17. Lawrence Bonilla-avatar

    I love how the game looks,sounds,and the games bosses with 3 bosses not included. I love this port. The definitive port of Sonic Cd. I also love the JPN soundtrack. Get this port, it is better and cheaper. The soundtrack is amazing, the graphics are great, and some bosses are interesting and fun to fight. But there is one main complaint I have: The level design in some areas. But despite that I love this port. It's only 3.00 dollars on the android's play store. If any fans of Sonic want to experience Sonic Cd get this port. You won't regret it. Thank you Christian Whitehead. All we need is Sonic 3 and Knuckles to be remastered to complete the Classic Sonic Series. Come on Sega come on.

  18. Brian Cabral-avatar

    The controls seem to work fine for me :) very fun to play, and the pinball level is hard but not unbeatable. I beat the game pretty fast considering i never played sonic before. My only problem is that it looks better on my phone than on my tablet. On my tablet it's very pixilated. (if thats even a word) but 5 stars anyways because it's pretty awesome :)

  19. Philip von Scotti-avatar

    Philip von Scotti


    I love everything about this game. It is great. The level design of this game is great. The music is great. This is my favourite classic sonic game behind sonic 3 and knuckles. I've completed every save file and I've deleted another one just to get the time stones. This is the only thing I can criticise about this game. It is really hard to get the time stones in the special stages. I didn't mind the first 5 but the 6th and 7th are really hard! If only they were easier...

  20. Andrew Betances-avatar

    Andrew Betances


    ...and just like the original with added features and options, bringing it to the 21st century. Cannot beat the original formula of classic sonic! If this supported fullscreen immersive mode for devices that use software onscreen buttons and maybe Google play games support like Sonic 2, I would rate 6/5.

  21. Gunner4312-avatar

    This game is really good! Just can you make it easier to get sound test and level select? Because with time trial that's almost exactly the same thing as level select but you can't use tails. If you do that, that would be great and I'll give you five stars for every comment I give you!(for your other games that you made) Hope you do that! Oh and can you fix the bug in the final level those little bugs that shoot lazers every time I try to hit then they don't die ok? Thanks!

  22. Mike Rogers-avatar

    It runs and plays better than it did on the Sega CD and has polish on every single device I tested it on. One thing I'd like to add is that when playing with a USB or Bluetooth controller (but not the MOGA for some reason) the on-screen controls don't disappear. It would be nice to see the entire play field unrestrained a la Sonic 4 Episode II.

  23. Jamie Hall-avatar

    The Game works perfectly good. No problems whatsoever. There are plenty of options to choose from, including being able to change the JP music track to the great U.S. soundtrack. This game first appeared on the Sega CD attachment onto the Sega Genesis Model one and two in 1993. For those complaining that there aren't any Nintendo games on here is that Nintendo isn't a third party company and obviously won't put any of their games on here. Why would they put their game on a different system that isn't theirs

  24. Ulrik Sander-avatar

    I was always an "aficio-Mario" as my parents bought the original 8-bit NES. My cousin had SEGA's original console (which I can't remember the name of...), so I was also exposed to the Sonic universe. Mario was my main man, but I admittedly dug the faster-paced Sonic too. With time, I forgot about Sonic while Nintendo kept releasing excellent Mario games. So when I, 2-3 years back, found Sonic CD for Android, I was sold. It was the BEST platform game for Android, and still is! Highly recommended!

  25. A Google user-avatar

    I had issues trying to get the game installed on my Galaxy Nexus running 4.0.4. CornetTheory's directions worked perfectly to get it past the download stage. JiveMaster's comments were perfect for getting the game to run at full speed. Awesome port. Very happy with my purchase. dev... just fix the issues mentioned so we can get rid of the low reviews.

  26. Kyle Davies-avatar

    This is pretty much a perfect conversion of Sonic CD, made better by the addition of Tails and choice of soundtrack (JPN s/track = best 90's Sonic music...ever). Admittedly, the control system isn't perfect. Trying to press 'up', sometimes you'll hit 'left' or 'right' by mistake. Apart from that, this is easily my fave Sonic game on Google play. 5*

  27. Corey Ferreyra-Peterson-avatar

    Corey Ferreyra-Peterson


    This is how you do a remake correctly. Christian Whitehead's new engine works perfectly for this game. The zones look amazing in HD, and I really have to give props to Sega and Whitehead. The physics are just the same as the original, if not a little better. And did I mention the 60FPS Special Stages, unlockables such as Tails, full cutscenes, and classic Spindash?

  28. Ratchford-avatar

    I thought nothing could beat the original sonic the hedgehog cd game man I was wrong I completed this without the time stones. The controls make me feel like I'm on my uncle's mega drive I like the look of light blue original sonic it suits the fastest thing alive better. One of the best things about the game is that sonic can run as fast as he can in recent years. The sound is amazing I know that sonic4 episode 1 is the best sonic game on the samsung galaxy note 10.1. But this is a perfect balance of the 90's and the 2010's so now I think about it this IS THE BEST SONIC GAME EVER AND YOU SHOULD BUY IT RIGHT NOW! !!!!!!!!

  29. Tim Wray-avatar

    While I can see how the button response might be off occasionally on some devices, I haven't had any trouble with that, and was able to beat the boss with the pinball flippers in two tries. Gotta watch where you're hitting the jump button on screen, I found that while trying to make the flippers go my thumb kept creeping up off the button. Overall, this is an amazingly ported game, just as awesome as the original Sega CD classic!

  30. Matthew Wood-avatar

    I love this game! However, I noticed one major bug. Even with all of the time stones, I will still sometimes fight a boss in the bad future. No matter how many times I exit, the zone won't correct itself. Also, I have the new MOGA HERO Power controller, and the left analog stick doesn't do anything for this game, so I'm stuck using the D-pad. Could you please fix?

  31. Adam Klassen-avatar

    Controls aren't anything to write home about. Lack of between level saving is a disappointment. Am I sad I bought this game? No. Decent purchase for what I would have spent on McDonalds anyways. May as well use an emulator honestly though, at least that way you would get Bluetooth controller support and save states.

    Nice game you got, SEGA! I've been a Sonic the Hedgehog fan since 2011, and I love this so much! But can you please port S3&K onto mobile devices? Also, make more ports. Port Sonic 2 and S3&K to Nintendo 3DS, Sonic 2, Sonic 1, and S3&K to PS Vita, there's alot of ports you have to make! But Sonic CD was seriously awesome!

  33. Courtney Boling III-avatar

    Courtney Boling III


    As a diehard sonic fan I knew I had to grab this. This is a great port of the original. And has less glitches than it's PC port, mainly the soundtrack and lag. But thanks to the team making sure this version was good, I haven't encountered any bugs. So if you're a fan of fast platformers, time travel, plenty of challenge, and that one and only blue hedgehog sonic. This is definitely for you!

  34. Ryan Sprinkle-avatar

    I was never lucky enough to have a Sega CD as a kid so I jumped at the chance to finally play this game. It was like finally having the sequel I've been waiting for since Sonic and Knuckles. Speaking of Knuckles, any chance we can get an update with Knuckles as a playable character? The top notch ports of Sonic 1 and 2 that followed this release have spoiled me and the red echidna has always been my favorite :)

  35. Bluestreak94 Plays Something Random-avatar

    Bluestreak94 Plays Something Random


    Sonic CD, for the longest, was a very obscure Sonic game. It began on SEGA CD, a console that tends to wear out nowadays, then on PC, which that version tends not to work on newer PC's without patching, then the hard to find version on Sonic Gems Collection. This version makes it easy to get ahold of, and portable at that, with both soundtracks and improved controls. The only thing I wish for is DLC or and update that allows you to play as Knuckles the Echidna, and maybe Desert Dazzle. I would pay for that.

  36. A Google user-avatar

    My favourite Sonic game ever, on a decent port. It looses a star though because the game is so sluggish! Why? The demo was perfect but the full version runs only at half-speed sometimes! Please please fix! It would be perfect otherwise.

  37. A Google user-avatar

    Christian Whiteheads (Taxman) is a programming genius. It's one thing to make a Sonic engine... It's another to remake a Sonic engine flawlessly, with no original code to source from. Game is better than it was on any other version, I've played them all.

  38. Oliver Narragansett-avatar

    Oliver Narragansett


    Sonic CD like how I remember it. Pretty faithful port of the original SegaCD/MegaCD game. There are some slight differences, but they are not noticeable unless you look for them. This version has both the Japanese and US soundtracks, and unlockable stuff that was accessable via cheats in the original game. Overall Christian Whitehead has done a great job with this. I can't recommend this enough for people who like classic Sonic games, or enjoyed Sonic CD.

  39. Airhead Xargon-avatar

    Very good port. Enhanced graphics and the controls are quite impressive. At first I thought the touch screen was going to be hard to use for a sonic game but they are very lenient on where you put your finger so pinpoint accuracy isn't needed! Includes both soundtracks.

  40. Sad Vlad-avatar

    This is seriously the greatest Sonic game Sega has ever made and the mobile version manages to somehow make it even better. But please make Metal Sonic a playable character. That's the only thing I think this game lacks and I'm quit sure that it would make for a very popular input. Unless this game is too far along for Sega to even care considering anymore updates to this game...

  41. OKeijiDragon-avatar

    Don't skip, you'll miss out. This is the definitive version of Sonic CD. You probably already know of the immediate features advertised, so let me explain the lesser-known awesome stuff that you will definitely appreciate: Beat the game, unlock Tails to play as; Control Sonic like you would in Sonic 2 or Sonic CD; Extended US and Japanese soundtracks; restored unused content. If you haven't bought this game yet and find it for less than $5, don't say no. Get it. Also, there's nothing wrong with the "pinball stage" I. E. Collision Chaos Zone 3. It was as hard as it was in the original. Babies.

  42. Jordan Thompson-avatar

    I would give this five stars except for that I can't hide the D oad and A button when using an external Bluetooth controler... Weird choice on the developers part... I would LOVE THIS thing if it were for that. I suppose I'll still play it,but I wouldn't have bought it If I had known that.

  43. A Google user-avatar

    Amazing port of an amazing game I've loved Sonic CD for about 20 years now. I didn't have the original Sega CD version, but I did play a PC port that came with the Windows 95 PC I got in 1997. Christian Whitehead knocked this one out of the park. Everything looks, sounds, and plays just as good as the original, even with touchscreen controls. Hell, I would argue that this one beats the original in some ways. They added the Sonic 2 spin dash, which I always felt looked better, and gave you BOTH soundtracks in this one. The game also looks beautiful in widescreen and the special stages run SO much smoother. I wish you had the ability to choose the US or Japan soundtrack on a stage by stage basis, but they've made such a good port already that I can hardly complain about that. A brilliant example of how to do a port in every aspect!

  44. Justin Edgell-avatar

    I never was able to get the sega cd/32x add on for the genesis so sadly I missed out on sonic CD from my childhood years. Now though I finally get my chance to experience this game but not only with the us soundtrack but also with the original jp soundtrack too! It's really bringing my inner child out with the sheer amazement of the sound and graphics. The game is a little different from the sonics before it yet its welcoming. It's the mid 90's all over again for me and I love it! Thank you Sega!

  45. Dee Luna-avatar

    This version of Sonic CD is very nice don't get me wrong. but there are a few issues. one such issue is that it doesn't play nice with actually exiting the app and loves to hang around in your backgrounded tasks. Another thing is unless I am doing something wrong, I do not see a way to pause the game. The back button maps as a jump button so it won't let you pause that way. Please give us a better way to pause the game besides hitting home or hitting the sleep/power button. Also No more hanging in the background. Sonic 1 and sonic 2 don't do it so why does Sonic CD?

  46. Alexander-avatar

    What's to say about this game that hasn't already been said? This port is a loyal redition of this Sega CD classic. Typically, I shy away from smartphone ports due to lack luster controls but this is not the case. Though not as great as having a tactile controller, the surprising responsiveness of the touchscreen controls make it to where you don't need one. This is perhaps one of the stronger suits for this port! Great Job!

  47. Peter Robinson-avatar

    Sonic CD is the only 2D Sonic game I missed out on as a kid, so I was very happy to discover that the game has been made widely available on modern platforms. Runs flawlessly on the Nexus 7. The help menu includes essential information. The extra options and unlockables are a nice touch. Probably the best $3 I've ever dropped on a video game.

  48. Mark Lynch-avatar

    Downloaded and installed the app on my Samsung TAB A7 and it keeps saying it needs to download from resources. Does not get any further. Need this to be fixed or I will ask for the payment back...

  49. A Google user-avatar

    I really enjoyed this game but following today's update the game has become frustratingly slow. The title animation, game play, everything has slowed considerably to the point where the game is unplayable (this is a sonic game!). Would definitely appreciate this issue being addressed. Galaxy GS3.

    I love this game. You guys need to update it to match with my lollipop 5.0. Also, fix up on Sonic's jump sound effect as he jumping around hurting my ears and fix up the mechanical problems of Sonic to match his Sonic 1 and 2 counterparts to make it an very balance and fluid gaming experience. Thanks Sega! Bring back Sonic 3 and Knuckles. Pay Michael Jackson's estate to bring back the music again. stop being cheap, Sega!!!

    Amazing classic great to have on your phone especially when bored or if you have to wait somewhere. If game runs slowly hold down samsung button and delete previous app history impove phone perfomance greatly aswell if this fails reboot phone a couple of times app may need to be restated a couple of times aswell. THIS SHOULD FIX ALL ISSUES IF NOT IT MEANS YOUR PHONE HAS TOO MUCH ON IT AND YOU WILL NEET TO DELETE AND UNINSTALL UNNESSISARY APPS AND FILES.

    I have no problems whatsoever when I'm running this game. The controls are smooth as expected and the replayability is phenomenal with the purchased version with Tails, Time Attack mode, and the extra content (seriously, this game is well worth the money and then some). I hands down strongly recommend this game any day! Oh, and for those who claim the second boss in Collision Chaos is unbeatable, it's not. Keep trying though

  53. Jake Sharp-avatar

    I love the option to choose which soundtrack. My only suggestion would be to make quitting the game easier. Currently when you exit the game through the pause menu, you have to sit through the intro again and then quit from the main menu.

  54. Sandra Sanchez-avatar

    I have a Samsung Galaxy tab a purchased this game 2 maybe 3 weeks ago and I have not been able to play it.... like at all. And I know for a fact ide enjoy this. Wish ik the issue. I actually have the exact same issue with the sonic the hedgehog 4 ep 2 sadly... lol. Oh well I only lost 2 bucks.

  55. ThePixlatdOne-avatar

    Great game. The classics never get old. Sonic CD is probably my favorite game in the first Sonic games released from 1991 to 1994. Add Sonic 3 & Knuckles and I think you guys will be set. BTW excellent soundtracks!

  56. Curtis F-avatar

    The app works great, better than many emulators even. My complaint is more personal, i picked the wrong sonic game! I meant to get the original but i messed up. If by some chance sega sees this could you possibly give me a refund somehow? (The other game is actually more money but i can afford it) Probably a longshot but I'd really like to have the original sonic. Other than that, id say if you're intrested its definitely worth your time.

  57. A Google user-avatar

    The harsh reality is Sonic CD is one of the most overrated games in an already over-rated franchise. Aside from outstanding audio and pretty visuals, the game doesn't do much more than what Sonic 1-3 already did, except for very poor level design

  58. A Google user-avatar

    The best Sonic game that was ever made, in a port that's actually better than the original. 60 frames per second, an option to select from the Japanese or US soundtrack, and HD animated cutscenes. My only gripe is that not enough classic ports are done this well!

  59. David Tee-avatar

    Just upgraded to a newer phone and I can't download this. The app installs but then error message comes up saying "Download failed because you may not have purchased this app". I purchased this game back in 2013.

  60. A Google user-avatar

    Old school Sonic should teach these modern games how it is done. Better than that Sonic 4 monstrosity (controls and gameplay are broken). It is also great that we can now download all the game files through the play store, but it uses a ton of bandwidth every time there is an update, as we have to download it all again. Wish we could only download the updated files.

  61. Aaron-avatar

    Really fun, I love the mega drive classics. Worth your money really flawless except for RARE crashes! overall a perfect download keep it coming Sega,THANK YOU! Can't wait for sonic 1 remake to come out! :-)

  62. Gale Storm-avatar

    I liked the game alot. I finally get to play and own this game for myself. My overall experience was great. The only two problems I had were these: The level design wasn't the greatest. Springs that'll send you to heaven and back all over the place (ESPECIALLY wacky workbench) and enemies that loved to be in the wrong spots at the worst times. My second problem...THOSE SPECIAL STAGES!

  63. Andrew Black-avatar

    Feels like sonic is underwater all the time...this is my favorite sonic game so I'm really disappointed. I don't know if it's the intent of the company that Sega used to "recreate" the game, but it runs about a quarter the speed of the original.

  64. Nick E-avatar

    Absolutely outstanding and well worth the money. This game is a vastly improved version that irons out the bugs and makes it suitable for the modern age. It's exactly like the old game, but with HD, widescreen and it's touch friendly. It has so many more features and new challenges. I only wish that Sega would release Sonic 3 and Knuckles, to complete the collection.

  65. A Google user-avatar

    Sonic CD. A great game with a few minor flaws. Good: Great graphics, good controls, and good level design. Bad: Trying to get the good ending takes forever if you aren't good at the special stages.

  66. A Google user-avatar

    This is an amazing game. Next update put a sound test please. Also, for sonic 1, make it so you can put it on an sd card because I get space problems on my phone.

  67. John Rowland-avatar

    Sega really went above and beyond on this game. Other than the lengthy download, I simply cannot find a single problem with it. I practically grew up playing Sonic Mega Collection and Gems Collection. I get so emotional just hearing the theme song. As a long time fan of the blue hedgehog, I sincerely hope Sega ports the Adventure games. My Nexus 7 could handle it.

  68. A Google user-avatar

    Same here. Game wont download. Gets to second set of files and fails. Takes 30 minutes to do that. Galaxy Tab 7. Took a few days for it to work. But its running now. Has both Japanese and US soundtracks. Still the best Sonic game ever! Update: Won't let me download again!

    I always liked this game, and the mobile version is simply fantastic. Runs very well and the addition of Tails is a nice bonus! Plus it's cheap! Only complaint is that I wish the D-pad and jump button were as customizable as the Sonic 1+2 games, but that is a nitpick. Oh, and the addition of both the Japanese and US soundtracks is nice!

    Some people had trouble downloading it but it was fine for me, furthermore the controls are more responsive than people say. Everything from plot to level design to soundtrack is just awesome. Also, people who had trouble loading and unresponsive controls, you've never tried to play the ps2 version

    I bought this to see the "Sonic CD Hidden Message" Where sonic has marios face. The USA soundtrack for Eggmans 1st battle music, freaky as hell. I played a level where It brought me to a place where I couldn't move and that spooky soundtrack played and my phone crashed for 3 minutes. Good game but I'm scared. #nightmarefuel

    This game is the after effects of sonic taking an acid tab with a line of speed and thrown into a total recall movie scene. After playing sonic 1 which was very slow and lagged this game is hypo mode compared. Its good tho :)

    I loved the game, I defeated it twice with Tails and Sanic. But there was one problem, the joystick. More like the ragestick when I'm in a secret level. It is hard to control sonic in 3D. It's like me playing Mc while in 3rd person view, which is hard. And, the worst part is that you have to complete the level in 1 minute I think.

    I've always been intrigued by Sonic CD as a kid, though I never owned a Sega CD, nor any of the collections it was featured on. Now, I'm able to experience the game for the first time and it did not disappoint! The only flaw I've found is not being able to select the level you want upon completing the game.

    Now that the ads are gone this game is better than all the new sonic games that came out. And I found out this might be the sequel of sonic 1,2, and 3

    This game is like the best next to minecraft to me. The only problems I have are the collision chaos boss, and a little lag here and there, other than that great port of a classic game!

    Used this with my PS3 controller synced via the Sixaxis Controller app. I was pleasantly surprised to find Sonic CD supported the controller immediately without needing to set up a custom profile. The game seems weirder than the other old school Sonic games and definitely a lot harder, but has similar physics/2D animations/feel. I would recommend to anyone who liked Sonic 2 and 3.

    I originally had this on the Mega CD many moons ago. This has always been my favourite Sonic game ever, the shear size of the game and it's levels and many incarnations from the past to the future zones is huge. The music is outstanding, (well the original Japanese soundtrack and not that horrible rubbish they added for the re-release in USA version ) is all here and perfect. Playing this I can't help but be transported back to my childhood and those magical times stuck in my little bedroom playing this on what would now be considered a tiny TV. This game is pure nostalgia.

    Terrible level design, sound, badniks, boss levels and bosses themselves , seems that someone put the Sonic 1 contents in a blender and Sonic CD came out of it. The past/future feature makes no sense and is not needed to the game play and again the design is just too bad. Releasing Sonic 1 and 2 for Android was excellent, how about releasing Sonic 3 and Knuckles, the best 2D platform game ever? That would certainly worth the price tag you guys slapped on this disastrous app.

    Sonic CD is a great game. However, I'm not happy about one aspect of this: Collision Chaos Act 3. Chalk it up to my own ineptitude, but it is near impossible to get your footing long enough to be able to even reach Robotnik. These touchscreen controls are so wonky and unreliable in this level. I blew 3 dollars on this just so I can finish one world and be completely trapped on the second one. Waste of money and time, just buy Sonic 1 or 2, and save your money.

    Sonic CD is a blast but since the mobile port had some bugs Sega removed it from the stores because it didn't meet there quality standards. Most devs fix there bugs with patches instead of just killing it off.

    Word of warning to anybody using this tablet, this app just crashes on startup. Works fine on an old Nexus 7 2012 though.

  83. Mikey Ivenso-avatar

    This definitely brought me back to my childhood days. It's most definitely better than that Mega Man X port on he IOS...that was just.....horrendous..... and the in-app purchases just take the fun right out of Mega Man X and out the window. But this game right here is everything it was and better since I can now listen to the JP soundtrack. No frame drops. Tails is a playable character which I guess is cool if you just wanna fly by the stages but (no pun intended) and it works smoothly on my galaxy s4!

    With Christian Whitehead working on Sonic Mania, I love how he pulled this off. Each play is a great reminder of how much I love this game series. Keep speeding off into eternity Sonic, may your legacy be redeemed once again.

    It's a great game and for only £3.70 it worth it. Shame though that the lite version isn't on sd card storage, or sonic jump as i would love to get it!

  86. Skyler Kona-avatar

    After commenting on sonic 4 episode 2, I decided to see metal sonic in sonic CD. Oh, I almost forgot my backstory on me typing ''NOW how much better will sonic get?'' And now I realize what I should have realized before, sonic will only get better, nonstop until Sega is the best known company. Amazing job. One last thing, YOU NOOBS METAL SONIC IS NOT HARD TO BEAT I BEAT HIM IN ONE TRY YOU DIDNT YOU EVEN RANKED HIM ONE OF THE HARDEST SONIC BOSSES IN HISTORY!!!!!!!!!! Puff... I need to calm down.

    This doesn't have the same feel as the original during gameplay, but it was still worth the money. Also, can you add Immersive mode to Settings?

    Great price. A classic Sega game from my youth :) Sega never had the best sound on the Megadrive but boy were they playable Sega should have kept making consoles.

    Seems to run alright, if a tad slow, but there's a weird graphical glitch where all the sprites have black rectangular borders, as if the alpha layer of the graphics isn't being read properly. Combined with the server issues, I can't say I'm overly impressed, but it would be good if the glitches were ironed out. Update: new phone, not an issue now

    This took me back to third fourth grade. I remember when it came out. So stoked to have this on my nexus 4 ahhhh the memories. Flawless controls. Good job folks

  91. Steve C-avatar

    The music is not the same. At least not what I remember. I remember the music being much better in the original game. There's also no way to exit the game, if you touch back button Sonic just jumps.

  92. Michael Duclos-avatar

    This port of one of my favorite sonic games is top notch. As to the comments about the pinball level, it was a mild PITA on the Sega CD how quickly people forget, but unique. As to whether it neuters this game, nah. Just neutered players talking. I passed it ok on every device I played it on, including a $49 Trio tablet. So either their great phones they brag about need cleaning up or their gaming skills do. Seriously, if you loved the original, then get this :)

  93. A Google user-avatar

    This is a faithful recreation of the amazing but obscure classic. The choice of both soundtracks is welcome. The widescreen and smooth 60fps make the game much more enjoyable to play (especially the special stages). This game is a must buy for any Sonic fan and a solid recommendation to any platforming fan.

  94. J Dredd-avatar

    It is RUINED by lousy controls. If it were fixed so that I could actually get Sonic to do what I want him to do, then I could give this game 5 stars easily.

  95. Justin Vezina-avatar

    Which is named Collision Chaos. It's still annoying even in the original, just be patient, and get better. I'm almost through the game already, Collision Chaos was not THAT hard, guys...

    For one thing, the sound mixing in the Japanese opening and ending cutscenes has been modified. This means that the music that plays during the cutscenes doesn't have as much effect as the original did. Also, Sonic Team forgot to give Tails his own cutscenes AND they should have made him race the Tails doll instead of Metal Sonic in Stardust Speedway.

    Even though i was a fan of sonic back in 2012, I still like him. But I hated mario for no reason. He's so popular and has some good games.

  98. Ampharos 96-avatar

    The controls are a bit bad but not complaining. Its the best game I've played since Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles, Sega did a great job with the game design

  99. Isaac Elias-avatar

    Great game. The black screen is to complete the download. After its done just open the app again and it should work.

    The ad Sega added is unneeded and uncalled for. The update also seems to bring a number of performance issues. It's a wonderful this game worked good in the beginning. But with Sega's track record, I figure they wanted to botch their game so it doesn't stick out of the rest of their bug riddled games. I use to be able to expect quality from Sega, but this is just another example of why I had to lower my expectations for Sega.
