Sonic CD


This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


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

Knuckles, Shadow and Classic Amy please!!!!

Sonic CD is the best Sonic game ever, but it would be even better if Knuckles, Shadow, Classic Amy and Metal Sonic were playable characters (even if you had to buy them as DLC).
With Sonic CD being my favourite Sonic game and Shadow being my favourite Sonic character, being able to play as Shadow in Sonic CD would be a dream come true!!!!!!
If you could buy other playable characters as DLC, then everyone's happy, as the people who want more playable characters (such as myself) could have the option to buy them, then the people who don't like the other characters just simply wouldn't have to buy them, everyone's a winner. Please Sega make it happen, you know it makes sense!!!!
I'm so looking forward to Sonic Runners Adventure, it sounds like the perfect mobile Sonic game!!!!!!
Keep up the good work!!!!!

Awesome game!

I love this game! But, here are some things you could change:
1. Like some other people said, I would like to have new characters available even if they aren't free.
2. I would also like to be able to time warp in time attack and if you can't do that then at least make different time attacks of the same zone (this doesn't have to include zone 3) and maybe somehow make bonus levels available to play in time attack too.
3. One time I had an idea for a new sonic dash game based on the metal sonic boss fight and if you do I would like it to be a lot like top gear race the stig

30 seconds of ads after EVERY level.

Yes it's free. But that doesn't mean we should be forced into watching ads every level or have the 'REMOVE ALL ADS FOR £1.99' advert thrown down our throats every 20 seconds either.

The No.1 review here says it's free. Be thankful. We ARE thankful, but the dev shouldn't change the goal posts when an item becomes free and load it full of adverts like the cheap money grabbing ads do. No wonder people are more and more wary of grabbing the free app of the week. It's a money making scam for the developers. Apple think they do us a favour. The devs see free money making opportunities. Disgusting. Woeful and just illogical. Wank3rs.
