This is great! I wish it was free, but it wasn't expensive, either. I know it's just the old levels reimagined, but the 3D effect is amazing! Love the homing attack. And I love the tilt-screen play on the Special Stage. I have yet to to get an emerald in Sonic 1, but this is much easier. The music is great and most of the graphics are good (some of the badniks look cheap, tho). One glitch, not a biggie- when I hit the goals in a Special Stage, it shuts off my phone.

To those who never played this game, it absolutely is worth it. The controls are small and can't be changed, but they are not difficult and it's still easy to control Sonic's direction. The boss fights take ideas from older ones and put a little spin to them. The cam may always stick low in some boss fights, but this is a great high speed game with some unique features. Just keep a open mind when playing it, don't immediately go into hate. You'll love it, trust me.

It's already a mediocre game on console, but that feeling is further amplified in this mobile port. The touch controls are clunky, there's a little screen crunch, all of the sound effects are lower pitched, which sounds wrong, and you're forced to use tilt controls in the special stages, making already challenging stages almost impossible. If you're gonna play this game, stick with the console version, preferably the PS3 or Wii versions where the shading isn't overdone.
