Sonic Ultimate Trilogy!!!!!
First of all, please make Sonic 3 and Knuckles Remastered with Shadow, Classic Amy and Metal Sonic as new playable characters for iOS, that would be a dream come true!!!!!
Then once Sonic 3 and Knuckles Remastered is released for iOS, it would be amazing if the Remastered Sonic classics were released as a Trilogy for home consoles (PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC).
E.g. Sonic Ultimate Trilogy (Sonic equivalent of Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy), where it could be Sonic 1, Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 and Knuckles all as 1 big game. Then you had the option to play it in classic 16-bit graphics or current gen up to date graphics, that would be so amazing!!!!!!!
How it could work could be once you've finished the Final Zone of Sonic 1, after the cutscene where the Chaos Emeralds float away, you then immediately started Sonic 2. Then complete the Death Egg Zone in Sonic 2 and immediately start Sonic 3 and Knuckles.
Then the playable characters could be you start off with Sonic (obviously), then reach the Sonic 2 stages to unlock Tails, then reach the Sonic 3 and Knuckles stages to unlock Knuckles. Then there could be DLC playable characters (optional) like Classic Amy, Metal Sonic and Shadow etc.
Please Sega make Sonic Ultimate Trilogy a reality for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC!!!!! It would be so amazing!!!!!!
Really good, but a couple of issues to rectify
I played this constantly when I was a child, always loved Sonic! This version is extremely faithful to the original game, and I love the extra features, such as the spin dash, playable Tails/Knuckles, and the secret 7th special stage.
Unfortunately, I can't complete the game entirely as the "Beat the Clock" achievement won't save, despite me seemingly meeting all requirements for it. Also, game saves do not sync, meaning that if you lose or replace your device, you'll lose all your progress.
If they could address these issues, this game would earn 5 stars from me.
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.
