Sonic CD


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Sonic travels to the distant shores of Never Lake for the once-a-year appearance of Little Planet - a mysterious world where past, present, and future collide through the power of the Time Stones that lie hidden within it.

Sonic arrives only to find the once beautiful world imprisoned beneath a twisted metallic shell. His arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman, has come for the Time Stones and with them, will soon have the power to control time itself!

In order to put an end to Dr. Eggman’s nefarious schemes, Sonic must use the power of Little Planet to travel through time; breaking Dr. Eggman’s hold over the future by destroying his machines in the past and recovering the missing Time Stones!

Featuring Retina Display, achievements, leaderboards and both the US and Japanese soundtracks, experience the epic adventure through time that introduced the world to Amy Rose and Eggman’s most evil creation, Metal Sonic.

Customer Reviews

A real Sonic game, it needs an update!

I feel that this is truly the best Sonic game for the iOS but have a bad feeling that it will never see another update to work with the latest iPhone models out now and the future which is a sad thing. Sonic CD is one of those classic games that has aged very well and still a blast to play.

I wish someone inside Sega would grow a brain, update this app and it will still sell with the best overall presentation from it's beginning on the Genesis and Sega CD, the best game for the platform and a well made game for mobile. Sadly it's now once again, stuck in the past.

Please update this gem for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus!!!

Luv this game

This game is awesome. Hey SEGA, can you do an update and add Metal Sonic as a playable character? Just put his sprite in the same stages and bosses as sonic but with no cutscenes. Or if you really want some high ratings, make his storyline start with the opening scene from the 1999 sonic movie, make his story end at Stardust Speedway with a race against sonic and a short cutscene of Metal Sonic kicking Sonic off of Stardust Speedway, then ditching Robotnik before he can issue his next order. That would make Metal Sonic fans everywhere happy. Just imagine the ratings! Please take this into consideration, and take your time on it so it turns out awesome :)

I love it, but am having problems

After finishing the game I went to play again ,but the sound wasn't working, even in the menu! I discovered that my mute was on. I turned it off and the sound worked for a second, but when I played the sound quit again. Although the sound quit in Sonic CD, It stopped in Sonic 2, also. I have an iPad first generation with iOS 5.1.1 which should work, but I can't find the problem.
Requesting assistance,
Your fellow sonic fan
