Sonic CD


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Sonic travels to the distant shores of Never Lake for the once-a-year appearance of Little Planet - a mysterious world where past, present, and future collide through the power of the Time Stones that lie hidden within it.

Sonic arrives only to find the once beautiful world imprisoned beneath a twisted metallic shell. His arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman, has come for the Time Stones and with them, will soon have the power to control time itself!

In order to put an end to Dr. Eggman’s nefarious schemes, Sonic must use the power of Little Planet to travel through time; breaking Dr. Eggman’s hold over the future by destroying his machines in the past and recovering the missing Time Stones!

Featuring Retina Display, achievements, leaderboards and both the US and Japanese soundtracks, experience the epic adventure through time that introduced the world to Amy Rose and Eggman’s most evil creation, Metal Sonic.

Customer Reviews

Great port and enhancements.

This is definitely the definitive edition of this game with all of its great additions such as Tails and including both the JP and US soundtracks; however, as some fan feedback, I would appreciate if this (along with the great iOS remakes for Sonic 1 and 2) was ported to PC for Steam, PS4's PSN, or Xbox One. I know that SEGA would have to be the one to greenlight such a project, but it would please people like me who typically don't play Sonic (but are attempting to get into the series with these iOS/PS3 remakes). Also, Sonic 3 & Knuckles on iOS could work as well as the previous installments' remakes.

SEGA is sitting upon many obvious gold mines in many ways right now, but they seem to refuse to even try to dig it up, instead being in favor in releasing/publishing games that are either unfinished (Sonic Boom) or rushed to meet a deadline (Sonic Lost World).

I know that Taxman & Stealth has already demoed a concept Sonic 3 & Knuckles iOS port (although not greenlit by SEGA), and I will be surprised if it hasn't began development yet, considering that this is yet another anniversary for the series this year.

True icon!

This blue speed demon is back at it again with something better up the sleeves of the enemy. He must end the plot of Dr. Eggo and his creation... Sonic's robot twin, Metal Sonic. He also meets and saves Amy Rosy the Rascal and travels time in the process, so I'd say this game is worth your time!

This game requires skill! You have to be skilled to crush this game! That is what I like about this. This is an amazing job done here. It is very difficult to see major problems, so I will leave it right here. 5 out of 5 stars.

Great game that was on the sega cd system

It plays like the original game on the console but I noticed a few things is missing like the future and past screen changes when sonic passes through the poles.. Each time sonic passes them, a whole new board morphs taking sonic in to another dimension which was cool.. And another thing is missing is the soundtrack.. The music was one of the coolest gaming soundtrack of sonic cd. Too bad neither of this features were added
