A fantastic remake by Christian Whitehead, that improves on everything the original did, with new content on the side. Highly recommend this to anyone who enjoyed Sonic 1 or wants to get into the series. Only major issue I have is touch controls, but it's not the devs' fault and can easily be fixed with a Bluetooth controller or y'know, a console port (hint hint). Other than that, this game is excellent and now that its free, you have no reason not to play.
This game is an amazing remake of the original with revamped graphics and since it's free, there is no excuse not to play this game. I also find the controls completely fine but playing this game with a Bluetooth controller would be better. The only problem I have with the game is that whenever I start the game, it says "Unfortunately Sonic 1 has stopped." It worked completely fine when I installed it and i really don't want to delete it since I already made it far into the game. So please somehow fix this issue because I'm sure other players have experienced it to.
So I'm sitting here playing the definitive version of Sonic on my smartphone with a gamepad wondering why more games aren't on Android. My phone could easily run Shovel Knight, Axiom, Bro Force, etc. So why aren't developers making the games? Does Google need to release an official gamepad or something? Only knocked off a star because even tho I'm using a gamepad the onscreen touch controls still display. Odd.
You can't fault the game. It's sonic the hedgehog! But a better version than the original improved by Christian Whitehead. It's essentially the same game with an added spin dash and what appears to be a better frame rate with tails and knuckles added in as playable characters. The issues are the touch screen controls. They are ok at best and will never be as good as a button controller. The adverts are a real pain. Probably best to fork out a couple of quid for an add free version.....
I absolutely love the game it self however for the past week it has taken multiple times each day O try to play to successfully start up the game. It always gives me an error message after the screen with the pictures going in circles gets halfway through. Please fix this issue so I can enjoy this game like I did when I first installed it.
Thanks sega it is better than the other sonic because on old sonic one if you go on spikes it spikes you until sonic loses a life and you dont have any files and you have to complete the game in one attempt. Suggestion: I think a lot of people will love it if you make KNUCKLES in sonic 3 not sonic the hedgehog 3 but knuckles. I'm saying this because if you make sonic the hedgehog 3 there is 6 zones but in Knuckles in sonic 3 there's more zones and if you make it free you'll get more Sega fans! How do you play as tails and knuckles and also can you make sonic 2 free? Ignore haters. Thanks sega!
It's time to go fast all over again with improved stability and bug fixes!
