History Starts HERE!

This is it. This one game was and still is... an unstoppable force. After 25 years, this game is still making the ground it walks on quake. This is the FIRST TIME... EVER... we see Sonic at it running down Dr. Robotnik.

The difficulty is no different from the original version of the game. Labyrinth Zone and the 6 special stages are still really tough. Green Hill Zone is much more enjoyable on this version of the game, ironically. Now the music can be heard in whatever way, which I love. When this game is accessed on AirPlay? Oh god, that automatically shoots my review to 5 stars.

Unexpectedly, this game speaks to the masses. This didn't happen in original ports of this game. It speaks in every way. For one, now you can play Sonic in every location in the world. Collecting the chaos emeralds was seen as impossible in this game. However, this game has the emeralds speak to the player. That player gets the 6 on their first try and finally unlocks Knuckles. If I could rate this higher, I would.

You think you have the best game ever? It was made last week. Step up to the real world and play some Sonic the Hedgehog. You may not think this is the best game ever, but you have a new template and philosophy.

More than just a remake

So i was bored one day watching sonic 06' cause why not and i was SO bored that i looked up "sonic" on the app store i see this game i get it and 12 seconds later I am adicted! Other than the amazing fun i had with sonic, I also enjoyed playing as tails. However i generally am terrible at platformers so i looked up a little cheat called "debug mode" so i can play as nuckles. The thing that was very cool however that in later ports of sonic 1 debug mode did not exist however it made it's return in this port! I have had hours and hours of fun in this game and i have not even tried time attack! Although the game can gt raging at times as well as a few glitches that got me stuck inside walls (especially as knuckles) considering this is the first main-series sonic game i have played i really, really, REALLY enjoyed it! I will defenatly buy sonic 2 and sonic 3 (or sonic 3 and knuckles) when it comes out or when i can find it because i havnt really found it.

Messing with debug mode= Awesome

Going sanic fast= amazing

Breaking the game with tails and knucking=the best ever

This game= all of the above

Definitive version of a legendary game

Let's get the obvious out of the way first: Sonic is a legend for a reason. Far before the endless waves of 3D versions that ruined the franchise, the original Genesis incarnations were landmarks of the gaming industry and still stand the test of time today. If you've never played it before, do yourself a favor and try.

As for this version: Mr. Whitehead has made the seminal rendition of Sonic. The mastery and craftsmanship of this port is simply phenomenal. If there were a Criterion Collection for games, this title
would be the headliner.

Finally, if you own an AppleTV 4, do yourself a favor and download it on there, get yourself a controller, and play the best ever rendition of Sonic the way it was always meant to be played! SEGA should totally take note and release high-quality versions of all their Genesis classics on the ATV! (Ristar pretty please!!!)
