Why update it with Sega Forever when you can keep it the way it is?

I used to enjoy this game a lot, but there is a problem that I just noticed. After this Sega Forever update, soon as I tested the game. While playing on it, I noticed that the jump button feels off. When I keep pressing the jump button, it doesn't really allow me to jump as many times as I want. I tried pressing a little hard on it or increase the sizes of the buttons, but still it doesn't allow me to jump multiple times. I even tried charging the spin dash as powerful as I wanted to go faster, but it still doesn't allow me. Whoever is responsible for this, I hope you read and understand my point.

They Ruined it

First of all, I’m not hating on this game like the other guy said. Heck I bought the game and played it so much that I’ve beat it with Sonic and Tails. (Haven’t been doing it with knuckles much) Ever since Sega Forever update, I had trouble restoring my purchase. Once it did restore, I found out the jump button became VERY unresponsive. This was a huge bother as I was trying out Boss Time Attack, and I used the powered up spin dash a lot to go a lot quicker. Ever since that update, this games been terrible to play because the jump button is what pretty much makes up every attack and movement in the game. Won’t change to 5 stars until the jump button is fixed. I would’ve made the review just 1 Star if it wasn’t for the great level design

The controls don't work correctly

After the most recent update, not only is the character selection screen in a strange position, but also the jump button doesn't work properly. Sonic will only jump one every second while moving, and although the speed will increase when standing still (ironic, isn't it?) he still doesn't jump right after landing back on the ground. The biggest problem, though, is the fact that the spindash doesn't work at all. I've found these bugs within the first few seconds of gameplay, and I hope SEGA fixes it soon, as this is the best version of Sonic 2 in existence.
