Can't wait for Sonic Mania!!!!!!!

Can't wait for Sonic Mania, I really hope it gets announced for iPhone soon!!!!!!!
As fantastic as the game looks, what would make it even better is if it had more playable characters, even if you had to buy them. Say like if you get Sonic, Tails and Knuckles already in the game, then if you want to play as other characters you had the opportunity to buy them. The other characters being Classic Amy, Shadow, Rouge, Cream, Silver, Blaze and Metal Sonic, that would be my dream Sonic game.
Also it would be amazing to top off Sonic 25th anniversary with Sonic 3 and Knuckles Remastered with Classic Amy, Shadow and Metal Sonic as new playable characters, please Sega and Christian Whitehead make it happen!!!!!!
Also the following Sonic games should get the remastered treatment or at least ported to iOS App Store:
Sonic Advance with Cream and Shadow as new playable characters.
Sonic Triple Trouble with Knuckles and Classic Amy as new playable characters and a 6th Special Stage.
Sonic Pocket Adventure with Tails, Knuckles and Amy as new playable characters.
Sonic Chaos with Knuckles as a new playable character and a 6th Special Stage.
Keep up the good work!!!!!!

Not suited to on-screen controls

Like many classic game conversions for iPad, there's nothing wrong with the conversion. It's the control method that's the problem. Without the tactile feedback of the joypad this game doesn't work. With on-screen controls you can never be sure where your thumbs are, so sometimes you're pushing for up when you think you're pushing for left. Makes it very difficult to control Sonic accurately, and therefore very frustrating. Pity as Sonic is a great game & this is a faithful conversion.


This was the number 1 game back in the early 90s. After a few years, a very rare thing happened in gaming - it never aged. So it's 2016 and this game is still as fresh and entertaining as the day it was released. Only the technology it plays on becomes dated. Thanks to Christian Whitehead, it once again feels modern.

Only bug is the Beat the Clock achievement which doesn't save.
