Sonic The Hedgehog 4™ Episode I


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The sequel fans have waited 16 years for is finally here - Sonic The Hedgehog™ 4 Episode I!

Featuring enhanced gameplay elements, including the classic Sonic Spin Dash, and the versatile Homing Attack, Sonic 4 picks up right where Sonic and Knuckles™ left off.
Two exclusive levels built specifically for play on the iPhone & iPod Touch using the accelerometer.

All of Sonic's classic moves are available, including the newer Homing Attack which will add a new level of control and excitement.

Race through 4 unique zones containing 4 acts each as well as 7 special stages.

A staple of the Genesis-era games, the special stages return allowing fans to collect the 7 Chaos Emeralds and unlock Super Sonic.

Dr. Eggman returns with new and improved mechas and will go berserk when he accumulates damage.

GamePro - “…this looks and feels like a genuine Sonic game, deserving of the "4" attached to its title.”

IGN – “After an afternoon in its presence it's become seared in our conscience just like the classic levels of the early Sonics – and surely that's reason enough to have faith in Sonic the Hedgehog 4.”

Sonic 4 Full Episode would be good

I think the best way forward for Sonic 4 would be to make Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode Metal and an exclusive 3rd Episode with Episode Rose as an addition all as 1 game. That would be fantastic!!!!!!
It could start with playing the episode 1 stages and getting Chaos Emeralds in Special Stages to play as Super Sonic. Then once you reach the episode 2 stages you got Super Emeralds in Special Stages to play as Hyper Sonic. Then in the 3rd and final episode there could be a new type of Emerald called Hyper Emeralds with a new super form for Sonic called Ultra Sonic. That would be amazing!!!!
In the 3rd Episode you could play Act 1 and 2 as Sonic and Tails, then play Act 3 as Knuckles and then choose who to play as for the Boss Act. Then Episode Rose could be where you play a few stages as Amy.
Then once the game is completed, you could then play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Metal Sonic in any level, that would be fantastic!!!!!!
Also can we please have Sonic 3 and Knuckles Remastered with Classic Amy and Shadow as new playable characters?
Please Sega make it happen!!!!!!
Keep up the good work!!!!!


I've been waiting for this update since June 2010. No more black bars (a problem since the iPhone 5) and Retina display compatible (a problem since the iPhone 4).

It does seem as though the screen has been blown up to make it widescreen as a lot of lower half seems missing. But it doesn't affect gameplay and once again, this fantastic game feels like a normal app.

Very pleased with updated version!

I brought this game many moons back when i had a 3GS and it has looked very dated since retina display came out. But not any more! Looks and plays great now on my iPad! Thanks for this update Sega. Now can we have sonic 3 & Knuckles plse??
