What's New in Version 3.1.0
Game Controller Match
Now some games suffer greatly when they get ported over to a touch pad, but this title suffers little in its conversion. I remember getting Sonic 2 for christmas back in 1993 and played it constantly for 2 days until completion. The graphics and level design seem to be spot on in this iPad version and I found the muscle memory from those childhood days hadn't abandoned me completely. I was able to progress through he game smoothly, testament to the fine tuning and faithful control system. The only area where the controls conversion to touch pad doesn't quite work is in the bonus tunnel run stages but this was never the main draw of the game. The controls here are just a little over sensitive but still workable. The game also has a save system which saves at the beginning of each stage. So for a little retro, nostalgic, casual gaming on the sofa and when you're out and about this is a great title. Faithful to the original with convenient save system I can't fault it and a great price.
The best sonic 2 port
This is without a doubt the best sonic 2 port I've ever played. The music and sound are really well ported, and the new 3D graphics for the special stage are an excellent new edition. This, and the first sonic are the best ported mega-drive titles in the app store in my opinion, they are very well polished, with new menu screens to boot. Like a lot of people are saying, it would be very cool to see a sonic 3 & knuckles port here, I would be happy with either or both as singular games to be fair, but, I'm not sure if it will happen.
Any one who likes the classic sonic games should love this port of sonic 2, it's the game you remember, and then some.
Sonic never looked so good
Playing this game in glorious quality for the first time made me really appreciate just how much work must have gone into the development of this classic game. You just don’t get that kind of appreciation when you play it on the Megadrive tuned in with the RF modulator. The colours are so much brighter and the game is so much sharper.
The controls take a while to get used to, but by the end of Chemical Zone 2 I’d gotten the hang of things. Being able to play as Knuckles was an unexpected bonus that didn’t go unappreciated - he brings a whole new element to the game.
Thanks Sega - you really nailed this one
