I re downloaded the game last night. Now at first I thought just like old times :D Until I actually wanted to start playing D: I can't get past the first menu without being interrupted again and again by adds. I once payed money for this game so I could play now I have to dish out more money so I can play only online with no adds D:< I'm not going today out any more money to you sega until you either 1. Make a separate version with adds and make this version the paid version or just change this version. Don't get this game unless you want to spend money on a "free" game

Amazing game but there is one issue...

--DRAGONMASTER90--

I hate the fact that you made this game playable only with internet so it literally is not playable for people that have iPads that don’t have internet connection to play the game and I really love this game but still fix this game from making people require internet.
P.S: fix sonic CD too
P.P.S: don’t do the update to sonic 2 because that means I have no more sonic games to play except sonic dash by the way why can’t sonic dash require internet to play it instead

lol

The once timmy killer

why don’t you sega make a freefall sonic game and you can run wherever you want in a bunch of maps and you can be different characters like tails or sonic you can collect rings and beat eggman you can attack him by knocking things at him like in sonic dash 1 when you need to smash through the robot fish you could smash buzz bots or smash stuff as you run around dogeing projectiles. Remember this is a suggestion and you gotta make this game fast
