iPhone X Support!

This is an utterly fantastic version of Sonic the Hedgehog, I don’t think Sonic has ever looked better than being edge-to-edge on the iPhone X’s Super Retina display!

I actually think this is the definitive version of Sonic 1 as it lets you save your progress, which is something you could never do with the original game. If you’re quick you can also retry the bonus levels if you fail which I think is a very fair concession to the player (and a better choice than the way Sonic Mania handles it).

I've completed the game multiple times using the on-screen controls, they are absolutely spot on and never get me killed. If you don't like on-screen controls the support for MFi controllers means the game works brilliantly on the SteelSeries Nimbus.

The game performs flawlessly on my iPhone X and iPad Pro 10.5”, with no crashes or frame drops. Get it for your iDevice now! ;)

iPhone X support is amazing!

As per the title - dunno how you got this one looking so well when the Sonic 2 one just looks stretched out.

Please fix Sonic CD on the iPhone X next!

Stupid sega forever

Sega forever has ruined the game COMPLETELY!!!!!!!
The game is good though.
