Sega Forever Ruined my Game....

Old review: Listen, I’m not hating on this game. I can honestly say that this is one of the best ports I’ve ever seen or played. Unfortunately , the sega forever update had ruined that for me. The biggest issue I have right now? The jumping. With the new update, the jump button is very unresponsive. I don’t know why, It just is. The jump button is a key component in the sonic games. And without this function working as accurately as they need to be, it makes the game practically unplayable...
Please, do what you can sega. We deserve better then this load of trash!!!

THANK YOU SEGA!!! You finally answered our complaints!!! The jump is fixed!! The original port is back!!! Thank you sega! As promised, here are your 5 stars!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sega Forever update ruined this amazing classic

I bought this game years ago and it has become one of my favorite games of all time. I have played through this game dozens and dozens of times. My fastest play through of the game is 40 mins(not super impressive but thats without glitching)

Everything was perfect until Sega updated it with adware. I restored my purchase but I still see ads. Even worse is that they also messed up the jumping controls.

I guess it just wasn’t enough for Sega to ruin Sonic’s new games. They also had to go back and ruin his old games. God forbid that you let us have one good Sonic game that I don’t have to buy a Switch or an Xbox for.

Also, why isn’t Sonic Mania available on iOS? It was developed by the same exact guy who ported this game to iPhone. I would gladly pay $20 for that game if it were on the App Store. Does your company hate money?

Please fix my game so that I can jump normally again. I don’t want to see your trashy adds, I just want to go fast.

Controls ;-;

The controls are the most problem in this “new” update. It might not be a problem but it is. Please fix this bug it was working before when the update wasn’t around. I’ll give my star back unless these controls get fixed.
