A fantastic port of a platformer that still holds up to modern titles. It's pretty, the music is great, the gameplay is varied and fast, and the overall experience is just pleasant. The touch controls can take a little breaking in but overall they do the job. Unfortunately, there's a blemish in the level design that ruins the rest of what the game has going for it: labyrinth zone stage three. The rest of the game's difficulty is based around reflexes and timing. The difficulty in this level is shooting the controls in the knee and tricking the player into a boss fight with no health. This level plays nothing like the rest of the title and it makes one wonder if the developers actually knew what they were doing or just caught lightning in a bottle.
Hi there my nephew downloaded this game and he purchased a few things on here without my consent. I'm disappointed because it didn't ask him for permission as thus is a kids game it should have parental permission before buy items on her. I would like a refund of all my money the ks
I agree the controls are really difficult. I played this game when it first came to the us via the Sega Genesis and those controls were way better. If you truly want to play this game right get one of those joystick accessories, otherwise good luck. It seems to go okay in the levels but beating Robotnic is much, much harder.
Installed the game on my chomebook. I was told that it should work fine on it. After installing it, and watching one of the ads...I couldn't continue. Tried relaunching a few times to get it to work...Not worth my time, or money to unlock.
Such a great port with good controls ruined by ads. I was about to buy the full version until SEGA stopped me when I saw that I will still get ads of their items. What's the difference if the ads are just going to be replaced with SEGA ads? Please fix this, I don't think anyone is going to be persuaded to buy the item because of your advertising if you be annoying about. In fact, this will stop people from buying the full version of other games. I love SEGA, and I've been supporting Sonic Mania and Forces since day one, but this is unacceptable.
I may have some bias because the OG was always my favorite CLASSIC Sonic game (I have done multiple no death runs, while getting all 6 emeralds as early as possible). Unlike the Genesis/MD version, this offers multiple save slots (with a no save mode if you want the original experience), optional spin dash (OG did not have), polished transition from a roll to a jump, and multiple characters. It's basically the 3DS version, but it has a bit more content. The game doesn't have ads during gameplay, only between levels. If you don't like this, then you can pay a measly $2 to remove them. Some complain about the controls, but I think they're fine. If you really need to use a stick or d-pad, the game can use some blue tooth controllers. In conclusion, this is by far the definitive version of Sonic OG.
Eggman's plan to fill the game with bugs has failed and they have all been safely removed.
