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.

Please make Knuckles and Amy playable!!!!

This is the best Sonic game ever, but it would be so much better if Knuckles and Classic Amy were added as playable characters (Amy could use Super Peel Out but instead of Spin Dash she could use her hammer when pressing Down and the Jump button, then pressing the Jump button again while in the air she could do a spin hammer attack) please Sega make them playable!!!!
Also it would be amazing if Shadow, Silver and Metal Sonic were playable characters in this game (Shadow could play the same way that he dose in Sonic Megamix, and Silver could play the same way that he dose in The S Factor Sonia and Silver. Also Silver could start off in the Bad Future and you have to go to the past twice to create a Good Future, that would be so awesome!!!! Silver would also be perfect as the guardian of the Time Stones in this game like how Knuckles is the guardian of the Master Emerald) please Sega add them as playable characters, even if you make them in-app purchases!!!!
Also please Sega release Sonic 3 and Knuckles Remastered with Shadow, Classic Amy, Metal Sonic and Silver as new playable characters, that would be a dream come true!!!!!
Also please release Sonic Mania for iOS devices!!!!!
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

Previously paid? Prepare for forced adverts... STILL!

The latest update does nothing to stop the issue of showing me adverts when I've previously paid for the game.

You get 2+ full screen ads, a 30 second video ad and at least 1 in-line advert BEFORE you even start the first level of the game! (which lasts for about 1 minute of gameplay before the next 30 second video ad kicks in!).

For people jumping in to this as the Free App of the Week, beware, you're in for the same "treat". This isn't a "paid game made free" as in previous weeks, it's a game that ditches its old price point in favour of an horrendous amount of non-rewarded, unskippable ads to try and force new and paid users to buy an ad removal IAP. There are more ads here than any other free-to-play game in memory.

Really poor showing and a shameless cash grab that's ruined a brilliant port. A kick in the teeth for anyone who's dropped good money on the game before it was made free, compounded by the fact that the update to remove ads for paid users doesn't even work!
