NEEDS BUG FIXES FOR IPHONE X
by Gfshjrirydkj on 2019/05/24 01:22
Getting stuck/glitches into a wall after beating the boss in scrap brain zone for months on iPhone X. Not the only person this is happening to. Please fix this!!!!!!!!
This is from the 1991!
by shadow 2736 on 2019/05/23 23:59
My dad play this as a kid so I wanted to try out the IPAD version so it was pretty ok
Not good
by Icantbelieveitsnotbutta on 2019/05/23 16:32
Buttons consistently stick and all I do is die. Great idea and I was very excited about this but there is absolutely no point in playing it if the buttons don’t react at all!
Bug
by justinmorrissey1014 on 2019/05/22 23:33
I’ve recently encountered a glitch in scrap brain zone act 2 after completing the act. During the cutscene sonic glitches in the wall and then dies. Can this issue please get fixed. Thanks. Enjoy playing all the wonderful classics on my iPhone!
Scrap Brain Zone Act 2 Finish Glitch
by BHGodlyGovt on 2019/05/22 18:49
Great game, lots of fun. However, echoing what several others have said, there is a glitch at the end of Scrap Brain Zone Act 2. After you pass the end of the Act and it counts up your points, it places you in the middle of a bunch of metal that covers the entire screen so that you can’t see what you are doing. Instead of showing the cutscene that is supposed to send you to Scrap Brain Zone Act 3, you drop and die. Great game, but this needs to be fixed. Obviously hasn’t been fixed yet, despite the last review from March 29th. Need to get your act together and fix this glitch!!!
Can’t progress
by Ploobalooby!!! on 2019/05/22 00:20
At the end of Scrap Brain zone 2 you die automatically. Please fix.
Issue with scrap brain zone
by extinction388 on 2019/05/21 21:28
What the hell is wrong with the ending of act 2 of scrap brain zone
Just one thing
by Bluefoxx517 on 2019/05/20 09:17
I love this port everyone that has made a review I agree with them but one thing IS wrong and it’s nothing with the visuals it’s a bug at scrap brain zone and I’ve tried over and over to get it to work it might be a big phone problem since I have the IPhone XR so the game might need an update so I can finish off Eggman!!!
Chao Garden App, Please! 😃
by MBazzell on 2019/05/19 19:21
Before I write something about this port I have to make a request/sugestion for an app that I am very surprised you have not published yet, Sega... I want a Chao Garden stand alone app on my iphone/iPad! 😃 Back when Sonic the Hedgehog was originally released, I played it around the clock that summer. I’d go to sleep and experience high anxiety yet amazing 1st person dreams of leaping from platform to platform across lava while avoiding swinging spikey pendulums. It’s an incredible memory of one of my most favored dreams ever. Of what I’ve played of these ports, the controls are surprisingly successful. Thank you for porting Sonics games to a device I have in my pocket all the time.

Glitch
by JC_films on 2019/05/15 15:26
In scrap brain zone act 2 when you finish and the cutscene starts the camera goes up and you can’t see anything and when egg man drops you, you don’t start act 3, you just die. I give the game 5 stars cause the game still works great and it’s a beautiful game, it works great, and it’s just like the original. Nothings wrong with the game other than that part. I hope when it’s fixed, there’s not another glitch like that.

Good game, toxic ads
by Slender demon on 2019/05/13 12:49
There are ads when you pause the game, or do pretty much anything that isn’t influencing your character’s position, I’ll change the review when this problem is fixed
You need the Internet to play now
by Schmidty94521 on 2019/05/12 21:10
Hello. I bought this game and paid full price for it. I like playing the game when I don’t have the Internet. I updated the software and now I’m forced to see ads and forced to play the game with internet connection. This has prevented me from playing and paying future SEGA products.
Zone bug
by Basket traveler on 2019/05/12 18:33
This game is fun to play on my free time at work, and it’s great time killer. I love that I can relive my childhood on my phone. Only issue is, there is a bug at the end of the level of scrap brain act 2. When you finish the level, the screen moves up, and then you can’t see sonic, only a wall, you can move sonic to the right and then you get stuck, you can’t move after that and then you fall down and die, having to restart the level all over again. Please fix this bug, id love to beat the game
Don’t bother
by Vee12434456 on 2019/05/12 03:00
You can’t play the game without it pausing in the middle of you playing to play an add. I can’t even try the game out before buying it. It stops me from playing as if I’ll get tired of the ads and buy it. To me that’s not fair. I want to get somewhat addicted to the nostalgia of the game before I think of purchasing it but keep interrupting the game and it makes me think what else would happen if I purchased it.
Good, but why does it need internet?
by Silly129 on 2019/05/12 01:05
The app is a good port/emulation of the original Sonic game. Everything is fine, until you realize you need the internet to play it. What the heck, Sonic Team.
scrap brain act 2 needs update
by Perpetual Snooze on 2019/05/12 00:55
as others have noted, the end of scrap brain act 2 is glitchy and won’t let you finish the level or advance to act 3 :p
Adds
by Greg18327 on 2019/05/11 04:27
It’s bad. I love running around green hill zone again, but in the first ten minutes of it being downloaded I get 6 adds. It is filled to the brim with adds. When sonic looses all his lives you see 2 adds of the bat. It’s just not good Hope you can cut down on the adds.
You frickin fricks.
by SonicLoverSammy64 on 2019/05/11 00:28
When will you learn that your actions have consequences?
Sega hear me out
by Kirby Swag on 2019/05/09 21:23
Overall I think the game aged ok but there is still a problem. In Scrap Brain Zone act 2 when you finish it the game glitches up and it forces you into a wall and then into the void forcing to lose a life and you have to start all over. Please fix this and thank you for fixing this glitch in Spring Yard zone
Ads on the actual game
by maluna2019 on 2019/05/07 12:12

You can’t play offline
by Captain frismo on 2019/05/05 21:08
I downloaded this game thinking it would be a great game to play when your not connected to Wifi or LTE but nope you have to connected at all times which is incredibly annoying but besides that the games fine
Unclickable ads
by Pignition123 on 2019/05/05 13:18
Everytime i open the game it starts with an ad with a metal x everytime i click it it doesnt work,Sega you need to fix that
No volume
by I did NOT vote for trump on 2019/05/05 08:02
This game would be cool if it actually had sound! For some reason whenever I play it there’s no volume and I’ve check a million times to make sure I got the volume on my phone turned up and it always is but theres no volume in the game
Great Game, Insurmountable Glitch
by Jay Grant on 2019/05/04 10:59

SEGA is a group of scammers 💰💰
by HyperSonicTheHedgehog on 2019/04/30 05:03
I had a friend who bought this game. but then the SEGA forever update comes and he starts getting nonstop ads. i told him to buy the ad free version of the game, so he did. but guess what.... HE STILL GOT ADS. LISTEN UP SEGA! the whole paying for ads thing is a scam. so enjoy people's money that you got from them, you dumb*** scammers

Glitch in Labyrinth Zone Boss
by Foxy 6670 on 2019/04/28 14:15
In Labyrinth Zone Act 3, just before the sponges start to rise with the water, I pushed into the right wall and managed to get stuck there till I drowned. Please fix this, because I lost my last life on that glitch. Well, time to start the Impossible Zone *Erm... I mean Labyrinth Zone* from the beginning.
Guys this game

Scrap Brain Zone Act 2
by MJR40 on 2019/04/27 15:56
At the end of Act 2 Sonic disappears into a castle where you can’t see him, you can only move forward or jump and then after a certain period of time he just dies and you have to go back and restart the Act. This is really frustrating, as I have beaten the Act 5+ times now only to just start it over and basically can’t play anymore. Is this a glitch? Can it be fixed? How do you move on to Act 3?
I love Classic Sonic
by Amouna777💕💋 on 2019/04/27 13:36
I love that this is here for nostalgia reasons and I like games that I grew up on. It still looks the same and game play is a bit odd to get used to on the phone but I’m still happy over all besides one big thing (hence the loss of a star). But to see that I can’t shut off the sound after I paid to use the app isn’t good. I’m stuck listening to techno instead of Sonics awesome soundtrack they had lol. But the only way I can lower is with my phone. I found the settings in the home screen and while in game but it doesn’t work at all. Hope this will be fixed and it would be awesome if there was a way to have no techno but classic sounds and music instead.
Still has glitches
by karlookis on 2019/04/27 04:14
Paid for the premium version. Have been enjoying the game with almost no issues. Until the end of Scrap Brain Zone 2. After you pass the level Sonic sorta gets stuck in the wall and can’t go anywhere. Eventually he falls into a void and you get the game over screen. I’ve got back about 6 times and still the same. Pretty annoying to not be able to finish the game. Kinda feels like a waste of money now.
Love it
by gambeno6 on 2019/04/26 13:54
I love it but I don’t like how you have to beat the game to unlock talis and K.t.e but love it
Scrap brain zone 2
by alex0001122244 on 2019/04/25 01:25
Each time I beat the level it ends up doing something and i end up losing. I’ve tried resetting the game but once I reached that level the same thing happened.
The greatest
by Rudad5 on 2019/04/24 04:43
The greatest game ever made and i was so glad i found it on the app store!
What a great classic
by Doug Coleman on 2019/04/23 23:46
Amazing, it started a great series of games, its definitely a classic. It sometimes can be challenging but a fun challenge. It is also sometimes can be annoying with the ads, please fix the annoying ads. Also SEGA take a few words from the fans, have Christian Whitehead remake sonic 3 and knuckles on mobile, and bring sonic 1,2,and 3 & kunckes on to pc for cybershell(a YouTuber). Thank you for 3 classics on mobile
Scrap Brain Bug
by marulloj on 2019/04/23 16:23
Love this game and platform but there is a bug where you can’t finish the game. At the end of Scrap Brain Yard when you finish the level you just die and can’t progress forward. Please fix this and this turns into a 5 star game.

Fix The Stupid glitch in scrap Brain zone
by CoachKillerCam on 2019/04/18 23:06
I gave it 2 stars because it is a great game and I gave it 2 because of the stupid glitch in scrap brain the camera goes to the top screen and when you fall in act 3 instead of act 3 you die and stay in act 2. IT IS REALLY BAD!😤👎
Idk
by Bob271636271 on 2019/04/18 03:32
Sonic is a classic game that I love and enjoy but I personally hate games that are free, but then say you have to buy something to remove ads or something else that makes the game inconvenient.

by coryt93 on 2019/04/15 04:19

Ohh boy. A bug.
by aguywhowritesreviewssometimes on 2019/04/14 13:43
So, I found a bug. Yippee. Anyways, this is a very good game all and all, it’s just that this morning I was going through spring yard act 1, and if you play as knuckles and glide onto the buzz bomber at the beginning at just the right spot you can clip into the wall. Just a bug I thought I would share.
This Should be voted: Best sonic game of the year!
by SonicWacker55 on 2019/04/13 20:04
I can finally play with more than sonic! This time I actually get to play as tails and knuckles. So, thank you SEGA for making this game
Why? Sega, Why?
by Durpy bit on 2019/04/13 16:42
I’m prob the only one that noticed this but the option to turn spindash on/off is now gone. Plz return it, I like trying sonic 1 with a challenge!

by Alex2710 on 2019/04/11 00:53
The cut scene with egg man is glitched and send you out of pounds causing you to die and have to do the stage over, this happens every time.
Can’t finish the game!
by Artemio A. Jorge Ramos on 2019/04/10 19:17
In the recent updates there’s a glitch at the end of scrap brain zone act 2 where the camera moves way up and you can’t see sonic at all. If you keep running forward the “cutscene” never triggers and sonic will end up falling of a ledge and dies. This is a big problem because I love sonic the hedgehog and I completed sonic 2 and I want to complete sonic 1 but this problem takes the fun out of the game and I loose interest in playing it.
Please make a new update please?
by Alexander Cortez Maruri on 2019/04/07 19:15
This game is pretty good but there’s a lil glitch in Act 2 of Scrap Brain Zone... when you get to the cutscene where you see Robotnik jump on the button before Act 3 the screen moves all the way up and I automatically die... please fix this.
The Classic Reborn
by Tre'sPug on 2019/04/07 04:19
This is the best game in the sega forever collection and I am wondering two things how do you play as tails or knuckles and 2 I have a suggestion for the swag forever collection and I know you might have not made this game or you did but the game I want to suggest is Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker But the genisis version but overall I think this is a very good game and I do want you to make my suggestion a part of the sega forever collection so thanks sega your the best by Nintendo because super Mario run sucked but still thanks
Good game but why WiFi
by eric vico on 2019/04/05 19:07
This game is good but there’s one problem I’ve been having with playing on the go back in 2013 you did not have to connect to the internet to play but now you have to connect to the internet in order to play and that’s the one problem I’ve had in one of these sonic games I mean why WiFi it’s not like we’re playing online and wouldn’t that problem be wasting data or LTE you must give it an update where we don’t have to connect to the WiFi just to play

Scrap brain act 2 is glitched. Every time you finish it, camera moves up then level ends and doesn’t continue. Have to re do the act. Once fixed I’ll put back to 5 stars
Pretty good game
by mackydab7 on 2019/04/03 20:47
I mean sonic doesn’t go very fast the spin dash is very slow but it pretty good not too good though I would recommend sonic 2 and cd because it wasn’t slow it was fast it’s the point of the games but I love the game but needs easier levels and sonic should go faster but um I would recommend it
Bug Fix
by lynus1325 on 2019/04/03 20:18
I loved Sonic the Hedgehog when I was growing up but there is one major problem I got all the way to Scrap Brain zone act 2 and every time I get to the goal the cutscene to take me to act 3 zooms all the way up in the generators and then when Eggman jumps on the platform switch I die and have to restart act 2 again over and over I believe you guys mistakenly put the goal pole at the wrong place it’s supposed to be on the edge of where the spike ball swings are please fix this I don’t want to lose my progress and start all the way from the beginning
Camera issue
by Gamer32X on 2019/04/03 17:53

Had a very fun time playing, but I finally got to brain scrap zone 2 and at the end it glitches and won’t let me pass, it goes to a screen and then I die, and have to start the level over, I have tried everything almost, and I really don’t want to delete the app, I have an IPhone X by the way.
Need new update. Can’t finish zone.
by Brandonjw23/ Sonikku23 on 2019/03/30 01:03
What’s good sega and sonic team. I love you sonic games I have them all sonic 1 2 and cd even got two copies of sonic mania for the switch and ps4 plus sonic 4 ep 1and two (y’all need ep 3 just saying) but look in scrap brain zone act 2 at the end it have a glitch in it (again) where when you get done with the zone and moving in it the cut seen right before act 3 begin the camera movies all the way up where you can’t see it and when get to eggman where he jumps on the switch to drop you in to act 3 of scrap brain zone you automatically die and have to start the act all over again. And also when you get out of the game and goes back in or restart that act you lose a life and that’s a lil uncool so can y’all plz update this app again plz. Coming from a big sonic fan since the early 90’s the game need to fix its bugs fast. And also side note can y’all plz come on out with a mobile port of sonic3k plz that game is way to cool to just let it past yea I and everyone else know by that now that MJ made the songs for sonic 3 and not in for knuckles part of the game. But at least let us download part or the whole thing to our phones and tablets plz thanks much love from one of your fans of the sonic’s series.

Awesome, but there’s a nasty game breaking glitch.
by Gameranx on 2019/03/23 12:04
Hey, normally when someone finds a glitch they leave a bad review, but it’s only a temporary problem with new devices, so I understand. However, it is a very bad glitch. On new devices Scrap Brain 2 will glitch during the cutscene causing Sonic to go out of bounds meaning that his only escape is death. That is unfortunate. I’m sure it’s getting fixed soon though, so I don’t care all that much. Edit: I found another “glitch” that lets you unlock Tails and Knuckles without beating a saved game, so it isn’t such a big deal. After all, the glitch happens on the second to last non-boss stage in the game, so you aren’t missing much.

Scrap Brain Zone Act 2 Transition to Act 3
by Cheddar119 on 2019/03/20 20:35
I love this game in every way. Even the touch controls are manageable once you get used to them, but after wasting my time getting all six emeralds and trying to beat the game, I can’t because I keep dying during the transition from act 2 of scrap brain zone to act 3...
What the h**** is this I mean I just started playing this just now and
by arthur david castel on 2019/03/19 21:36
An ad came on and the third level is impossible to beat. and Nintendo is just better if I were you I would just get Super Mario Run. thanks for nothing hecking saga. but if you like avirtisemint then get this. infackt I will delete this game now good day you parbody you pec of garbage. I remember that you made a rip-off of Super Mario Bros on the saga genesis remember. to me saga is a pecs of 💩
It was good at one point, and now I can’t even enjoy it.
by Vito Demalteris on 2019/03/19 14:58
I remember when you had to pay to download the app and there were no ads. Those were the glory days. Now the app is plagued with ads to the point where I can’t even enjoy it anymore without an ad popping up on my screen out of nowhere and having to wait for the little X to come up. Also now I’m seeing that even after paying to remove the ads it doesn’t even completely get rid of them! Please, downgrade or upgrade it back to the way it was, the way it’s supposed to be.
Terrible Controls
by Dom Philbrick on 2019/03/19 13:41
I really wanted to like this game, but the controls made that impossible. Before I downloaded the game, I saw a lot of reviews saying that the controls were bad, but I never thought they would be THIS bad. For me, it was unplayable. I recommend you try this game just so you can see how bad the controls are, because words simply can’t describe this atrocity.
Glitch in scrap brain zone act 2

Love the game so far but There’s a glitch at the end of scrap brain zone act 2 that sent u up a wall and kill u can you please fix this
Great game but requires internet
by SkyLinePon3 on 2019/03/17 22:45
Please make this game playable offline! I beg you!
Rip off
by Subsidy subdues on 2019/03/17 22:28
I bought the ad free version, and I later tried to restore it, and it said NOTHING TO RESTORE!!!
Way too many adds.
by jimefbnki on 2019/03/17 21:25
It ruins a great game. Uninstalled.
Sonic 1
by NYCgirl2 on 2019/03/17 17:22
I rate this game 3/5 because the obstacles are very frustrating and mediocre so what I would like is to remove most of the obstacles and also I would literally like to make every platform straight so it will be more enjoyable to kids, teenagers and adults. By JR. 3-17-2019.
Sonic
by tda cat on 2019/03/17 13:23
I think you should absolutely play this game my baby brother LOVEs this game it’s fun I played it to make sure it was appropriate for him I like it too it’s good to teatch him with we played a lot of sonic games but this is the best game I’ve ever played
THIS IS AMAZING but...
by djthecreator on 2019/03/17 00:39
Absolutely adore the sonic franchise especially since this was the first sonic game I ever placed I always enjoyed zooming through levels so quickly the camera can’t keep up but there’s only one issue there’s a bug on scrap brain zone act 2 that when you finish the level the screen pans up very quickly and prevents you from seeing anything but the ceiling of the stage if you try to run forward you just fall to your death and I understand your supposed to enter act 3 but that’s not the case watch out for that bug
Still unbeatable.
by SomeRandomPerson221 on 2019/03/16 20:03
I found a bug on iPhone XR on Scrap Brain Zone Act 2. When you beat the level, and it goes to the part where Dr. Robotnik presses a button to send you to “Act 3”, it instead sends Sonic in a wall that I cannot escape. Please fix this so the game can be beatable.
Terrible level design

Larry the hedge hog
by layered onion on 2019/03/15 13:16
They did not take my fan fiction into account when putting this game on the AppStore. Where is my Larry the hedgehog? Now SEGA, if you add my hedgehog Larry to the game I will consider giving you your five stars.
Only let’s you go to level 3
by Jordans girl <3 forever on 2019/03/14 01:51
I have beaten level 3 four times in a row and it doesn’t let you go any further. Very frustrating. Huge problem. Don’t waist your time. It’s fun until you can’t play a new level.
Falling through map
by JayBlackIce on 2019/03/12 16:02
Great game but every time I finish scrap brain zone act 2 it always plays the eggman theme showing a wall. Then the screen falls and I lose a life and have to start over in an endless loop.
Ads and spin dash
by EWonApple on 2019/03/11 01:21
I payed for this game and I have to see ads? Also, why can’t I turn spin dash off anymore? Please fix these things so I can enjoy playing it again.
Need new update. Can’t finish zone.
by Brandonjw23/ Sonikku23 on 2019/03/30 01:03
What’s good sega and sonic team. I love you sonic games I have them all sonic 1 2 and cd even got two copies of sonic mania for the switch and ps4 plus sonic 4 ep 1and two (y’all need ep 3 just saying) but look in scrap brain zone act 2 at the end it have a glitch in it (again) where when you get done with the zone and moving in it the cut seen right before act 3 begin the camera movies all the way up where you can’t see it and when get to eggman where he jumps on the switch to drop you in to act 3 of scrap brain zone you automatically die and have to start the act all over again. And also when you get out of the game and goes back in or restart that act you lose a life and that’s a lil uncool so can y’all plz update this app again plz. Coming from a big sonic fan since the early 90’s the game need to fix its bugs fast. And also side note can y’all plz come on out with a mobile port of sonic3k plz that game is way to cool to just let it past yea I and everyone else know by that now that MJ made the songs for sonic 3 and not in for knuckles part of the game. But at least let us download part or the whole thing to our phones and tablets plz thanks much love from one of your fans of the sonic’s series.
Wonderful port, terrible controls
by Aurafox1 on 2017/08/10 21:56
I've only played the free version, but I absolutely love this port of the game! The screen is zoomed out so you can see a lot more clearly and it's incredible to finally play Sonic 1 with the spin dash rather than the mediocre emulations of the original genesis title you see everywhere. In the free version, I haven't found the ads to be intrusive at all. I heard the premium version still has ads which definitely needs to be fixed, but other than that, the inclusion of Tails and Knuckles seems well worth the money. There's just one major problem preventing me from buying the game: controls. I get that it's a mobile app, so there's not much you can really do, but I cannot stand using on-screen buttons for game like this. Every time I try to turn around, I accidentally end up rolling, often leading to me rolling right off into a spike or pit. Similarly, I might just be trying to jump forward but accidentally spin dash, or roll and suddenly lose all of my momentum. I would absolutely love if this port could be made available on consoles and/or through Steam. I would love to play such a wonderful port the way it deserves to be played! Maybe if Sonic Mania is successful?
It’s Still Sonic 1
by The Autman on 2018/02/15 05:20
Christian Whiteheadand his team have provided the same classic Sonic game that kick-started SEGA’s mascot into the spotlight, and they have also made substancial improvements along the way. Widescreen gives you a much better view of what’s ahead and how to react, a stable framerate makes the controls buttery-smooth, and the inclusion of the spin dash makes certain sectiona a lot less of a hassle. The options to play as Tails and Knuckles are nice touches as well, allowing you to explore the levels in ways you never have before. All that said, while the game is still the classic Sonic 1, that means it has many of the downsides of the original that no remake can fix. Save for Green Hill, the overall level design leaves7 something to be desired (Marble and Labrinth are especially boring), the bosses are beyond easy to beat, and the special stages give me headaches from two angles; one comes from the constant spinning of the stage, and the other comes from how downfight frustrating they are. Overall, the downsides are mostly mostly mitigated by the touch-ups from mobile port, and it’s worth trying out if you haven’t played Sonic 1 before.
Almost awesome
by Axis Destroyer on 2018/10/26 22:41
Being the lame-o that I am, I’ve never played the original Sonic the Hedgehog, so seeing that there’s an app where it’s free to play made me excited! I did see the hit and miss reviews which kinda had me nervous, but I got it to see myself. The number one complaint I and the others have is the ads. My lord. Press start, ad. Start stage, ad. End stage, ad. It takes away from the experience. I get why you have ads and that’s fine, but it’s how much you get in so little time that’s aggravating. The other thing is the controls. Now I know it’s hard to take a game that had a controller and put it on mobile, but sometimes the run control can be iffy. It just doesn’t respond sometimes. But the ad thing is what’s got me most annoyed. Really other than that, it’s a cool game. For someone like me who hasn’t played it, I like it. It’s almost awesome. Just needs a few fixes. I’d download it and try it and see if you can take the ridiculous amount of ads and iffy controls. I mean the game itself is fun. Just little stuff that takes away from it.
The new update created more problems than it fixed
by Strikinggamer on 2018/06/20 03:34
When I saw that Sonic 1 was receiving an update, I was excited as I thought that they would fix the glitch where the Game Center achievement “Beat the Clock” would not be distributed. However, after the update, I was shocked to see that it created more problems than fixes. Not only was the Game Center achievement still broken, but the update also added multiple new problems. The file select now shows 7 Chaos Emeralds, yet only 6 can be acquired through normal gameplay. And if the player goes into a Giant ring at the end of Act 1, after the special stage ends or they collect a Chaos Emerald, it takes the player to Act 3 and skips Act 2. Also, a completed file now says “Special Stage 1”, but selecting the file takes you to the “Stage Select” screen. To make matters worse, the Time Trial mode is completely broken. Each zone only contains 2 acts instead of the 3, and different zones will be merged with other zone selections (Ex: Green Hill zone Act 3 in the Marble zone selection). I am very disappointed with this update for Sonic 1, as I was hoping that things would improve much more as time went on. I hope that these issues are resolved as quickly as possible.
Time Attack Bug
by HyperSonic75 on 2018/06/24 23:24
So, ever since the new update, The time attack mode has been acting wonky. I ended up deleting my game, which is fine, then redownloading and THAT didn’t fix it. Here is the bug. Each Zone in time attack displays two levels which messes with EVERYTHING. Here is an example. Green Hill in Time Attack displays ONLY acts 1 and 2. But then, the problems arise. Marble Zone in Time Attack displays Green Hill Act 3 and Marble Act 1, see the problem? This means Spring Yard in Time Attack displays acts 2 and 3 of MARBLE Zone. Then Labyrinth in Time Attack displays the first two acts of SPRING YARD, Starlight in Time Attack displays Act 3 of Spring Yard and Act 1 of Labyrinth, Scrap Brain then displays The next 2 acts of Labyrinth. Final zone displays the first two acts of Starlight, and the special stage displays Act 3 of starlight and Act 1 of Scrap Brain. Meaning I can’t even access Scrap Brains Act 2 and 3, Final, or the Special stages in Time Attack, so please fix this! This game is amazing and I’d hate to see this bug ruin it!
Impossible glitch on iPhone XS
by R. Augustin A. Chenault on 2019/01/10 22:51
There is a glitch in Spring Yard act 3 that makes it impossible to pass the act. After beating Robotnik and opening the animal capsule, Sonic runs off the right edge of the screen and dies while the animals are jumping out of the capsule. This was not a one time glitch. This happened three times in a row and I got a game over. I also noticed that you can see the edge of the game window during the end of special stage score screen. I believe the edge of the game window does not extend far enough on the iPhone XS screen, allowing Sonic to run past the edge of the game window and fall off the right edge of the level and die, or some similar behavior. A previous review addressed the same issue and the developer response was the dev tram was aware of the problem and working on it. That was 8 months ago and the problem is still present, despite a game patch coming out one month ago. As a software dev myself, I am embarrassed of such unprofessional work. Please patch this glitch so I may update my one-star review. Addendum: on iPhone SE, the game runs super-slow, like at 75% speed. What is with all these bugs?
Simply Terrible
by Anython on 2017/11/25 21:09
I would enjoy this game a lot, if I actually got to play the game! There are so many ads it literally crashes my game before I even reach the "Start Game" button. I can hardly complete a stage, because whenever I try I always crash and have to restart my game. It's so bad that if an ad is over 10 seconds long it goes right back to the starting screen. Like seriously SEGA and Christian Whitehead you can do much better than this. I managed to beat the game, but I no longer want to play it ever again yet alone put my hands on this game ever again when all I know I'll be getting is ads all over the place. Also why does anyone need to pay to get no ads, I wouldn't mind the ads if they didn't ruin the game and the overall gameplay experience, but buying no ads in this game seems almost mandatory with the fact that there are ads everywhere. Honestly, if ads are ever used in games it should be done correctly and should never affect the gaming experience, and this is a perfect example of how not to use ads in games.
Pretty nice!
by The Honest Review Ninja on 2018/06/29 15:11
I wanted to see if there was a Sonic game for my iPad, and this showed up! I downloaded it immediately! I don’t really care for the controls. To me, they make the game a little more challenging but that’s what makes it better for me! Not too easy, not too hard! However, I have one complaint: The amount of ads in this game is...well... that’s why this app has a 4 star rating. I don’t usually care for ads. The only problem I have here is that the ads are HUMONGOUS (in size). ONE AD WAS SO BIG THAT IT COVERED THE WHOLE SCREEN!!! I COULDN’T EVEN SEE A X BUTTON SO I HAD TO CLOSE THE APP. Anyways, if you’re going to have ads, please, make them so that we can see an X button and that they aren’t humongous. I know you guys won’t read this, however this note also goes to people considering to install this app. I say “Get the app, but beware of ads.” Have a nice day, reader!
I LOVE SEGA
by AOFRSF-Z on 2018/08/30 01:36
I love the speedy games with sonic or captain Falcon (More than Mario). But theirs a game that I played 11 years ago I’m really requesting for cause of my childhood (I’m still a kid though) and that game is knuckles choatix. This game made me realize that I just grew up with f-zero (Nintendo) I also grew up with knuckles chaotix (SEGA). knuckles was my all time favorite sonic character even when I never knew I grew up with him ( I figured I grew with him because of sonic paradox after seeing realistic characters of chaotix but what what really jumped me was the music cause SEGA is mostly known for great music, blast progressing, and speed, so I did some research and after seeing the gameplay I gave me some flash backs. I lost the game because I broke it with f-zero and super mario world but I don’t know how I break the game though) but THANKS FOR MAKING THE ORIGINAL SONIC😃😄😁
Um
by Matt Matty Matthew on 2017/09/12 02:21
There are two glitches in sonic 1 iOS new 1 glitch is hard to find and the other one is that your rings from a ring box don't give you instant rings. I found this in spring yard act 3. Rip tails from 1992 to 2017 death to the zone will never name for its water. So tails is none to die because you steal the bubble. So what I do is give Tails a bubble before he drowns so when Tails timer was at zero he got it but was put in the death state so he died. So sad I know. I hope you like your death sonic see at the bottom of final zone, because SEGA are not putting a thing to stop you from falling off that platform which is right next to a pit. We all need the and knuckles and and sonic and and tails mode in this game. Oh and why do we internet? Is it because of the adds and achievements from Game Center.
Decent game
by whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat on 2018/10/06 18:24
This game is a really good copy of the original, but there are a few downsides. First of all, cut down on the ads. There are so many. There is one ad that pops up and it has an x at the top, but whenever I click on the x, it takes me to the App Store. So I have to sit through this long ad waiting to get to play the game. Some of these ads are very inappropriate, too. I’m a Christian, and I do NOT want to see blood and half dressed women. Along with the complaint of the ads, there are so many ads that my game freezes up every ten seconds. The freeze also cancels out jumps. I was playing as tails and was fixing to defeat eggman, when the game froze, and I ended up hitting his wrecking ball. And since I had zero rings and lives, I died and got a game over. I was SOOOO mad. Overall it is actually a really good game, it just needs some improvements. P.S., I love the inclusion of tails and knuckles. Don’t get rid of that.
Great memories! Terrible ad control
by Stef N Stuff on 2018/04/06 00:16
I love it. It’s great to feel the nostalgia of the very first sonic game, with a few added bonuses! However, there is a huge problem with ads, but I’m pretty sure everyone is well informed of that. One bug that constantly gets in my nerves is when I pause the game because I have to leave the app to do something (like a text). When I come back to the game, it’s expected that when I press continue, it shows me an add and then lets me play. However, and PLEASE FIX THIS SEGA, once it shows me the add, it takes me BACK to the PAUSE SCREEN, where again, I have to WATCH AN AD, and the cycle repeats. Sometimes it ACTUALLY lets me play, but others it doesn’t. Please fix this, but, other than that, a great app to help pass the time and replay those classic 2D levels.
Great Game!
by FranticFire on 2017/11/11 20:16
This is, Not going to lie, the greatest version of sonic 1 I’ve ever played. It’s as great as sonic mania, The only thing that’s bad about it is the ads, there’s just a ton of them, when you choose start game, BOOM, ad, when you game over, BOOM, ad, you get so many ads in the game it’s hard to say how many things you do in the game that gets you an ad, it’s hard to count. On the plus side though, the no ad version is only a dollar, some games make you pay more, looking at you dumb ways to die. Also the d-pad and jump button are to big but that’s minor. In conclusion, Sonic 1 is one of the best sonic games I’ve ever played, and I’m hoping they add sonic 3 and knuckles into the App Store, if it’s already added, I never saw it when I spawns scrolling though the App Store.
To: Sega
by Vilentane on 2018/05/14 19:44
Look, I know it’s tough, Sega. I get it. You’re star character runs the scene for a few golden years, then falls on hard times, that’s okay, really. We all love Sonic, and nothing can ever change that, but this, this butchered version of something meant for good, is unacceptable. Christian Whitehead’s port was fine the way it was before. I remember buying the original ports right after they came out, and the feeling of joy when I saw that what I was about to play really felt like a Sonic game. Not because it was a Classic game or because classic Sonic is the only “real” Sonic, but because I could see the care and attention to detail put in to make it real. But this version is a gross disrespect to those ports, and everything they stood for. I logged on one day to find ads over my Sonic, and all of that joy left me. You are a monster, Sega. I’m beginning to wonder if there is any hope for Sonic after all, if Whitehead’s work is such a joke to you.
Springzone 3 and iPhone X
by MM152 on 2018/06/27 13:20
U can’t get past springzone stage 3 on an iPhone X. It appears that after u defeat Robotnik and blow up the machine, sonic automatically runs off the screen to the right and dies. It almost seems like the wider screen of the iPhone X is causing the issue, where sonic runs on a part of the screen to the right that has no blocks for him to run on, so he falls and dies. The game resumes from the last save point. As a result, can’t get past this level. Good game, but 1 star until they can fix this. Developer responded this is not a priority to fix at this time. DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE AN IPHONE X!!! UPDATE 6/27: They deployed a fix which broke the ad-free version. So now, even though I paid for the app, I can’t get rid of the ads. Tech support says the problem is noted but can’t do anything until developers are prioritized to fix the issue. So, my review still hasn’t changed. DON’T PAY FOR THIS GAME UNTIL THEY FIX THESE ISSUES!!!
Dear people, you’re all not paid critics
by Thomasaurusrex on 2017/12/06 15:35
Thank you for noting on a phone, the controls are flat, and phone like.... your opinion will sway my like for games on my phone. I’m gonna get a genesis controller and wire it for my lightning port on my dang iPhone. Idiots. Look. If you like sonic. And you like sega? You’re probably going to like this game. If you don’t like flat layout controls, follow the rest of the “game critics” who are so highly rewarded and sought to be like and burn your phone, don the foil hat and go buy 5-600$ game consoles. Might as well buy one of each. And make sure those controllers are well lubed. Thanks Sega. I highly recommend the game. Always been a fan of Sonic 💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌 highly recommend
Unbeatable
by butricat on 2018/06/10 03:01
I was very excited to play this game for the first time. I bought the premium version and everything. Unfortunately, on my iPhone X at least, I can’t proceed past Spring Yard Zone Act 3, as whenever Sonic hits the animal capsule at the end of the stage, he runs off and immediately dies. You can be in complete control and replicate this. The game itself is fun and beautiful on iOS, but it gets 1 Star for a game-breaking bug that wasn’t even addressed in the latest software update. UPDATE: through the use of ANOTHER bug, I was able to skip the level. Hitting exit in the menu during a special stage will skip the next stage upon reloading and beating the special stage. However, I’ve found that Brain Scrap Zone Act 2 is ALSO broken! The transition does not properly work, scrolling up instead of right, making it ONCE AGAIN impossible to proceed. This is unacceptable after a supposed “bug fix” patch update.
Why the internet tethering?! (Update - fixed now)
by Danylos. on 2017/12/28 08:50
Let me first say that I love this game. I played it when I was a kid, and gladly play now. However, I am on the go a lot, and I specifically got it to pass time on my long trans-Atlantic flight. I even bought the anti-AD thing. Well, surprise, the game doesn't run without the internet. So let me ask you, developers, why the heck does a game from the 90s with no changes to its core mechanics require a constant internet connection in order to even launch?! I would give it a 5 star, but until this crap is patched out, 2 is all I can give. Update - the internet tethering has been fixed! This means I can finally update my review to a 5-star!
Great but... (THANK YOOOOOOOOOOOOOU!!!)
by MegaSuperab on 2017/10/04 11:41
Christian Whitehead's work is amazing and I love it. This port is fantastic, but there's one fatal flaw that NEEDS to be updated. I've had this game since 2013, meaning I paid $2 before SEGA Forever came along. When the SEGA Forever update came along, I lost my purchase and was unable to restore it. This was fixed in an update, and I got my ad-free purchase back... for a month. I'm now unable to restore the purchase AGAIN, and whoever is running this stupid service won't release an update to fix this. I've had this issue for months and no matter how many times I relaunch the app and press the button, it always says Time-out. I'm giving this app a 5 star rating because, again, this port is amazing. However, I won't be able to play it again until either I finally get my darn purchase to restore or, what I recommend, you put out an update. And don't give me that "Restore Purchase and reopen the app" crap, that's obviously not working. EDIT: YOU FINALLY FIXED IT! I CAN FINALLY PLAY WITHOUT ADS! AND YOU FIXED ALL THE OTHER ANNOYANCES I HAD! YOU ARE GODS! THANK YOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously, SEGA?
by DoIt48425 on 2018/07/03 00:57
I got this game when it first came out. Then, it was just emulation. To my surprise, it got an update that completely overhauled the game and made it great. But, when it became free, that was when things started to show signs of weakness. Since I bought the game beforehand, I wanted to restore my purchase. The game was now plagued with ads, so it was kind of annoying when I could not. An update later fixed that, but it was just a sign of things to come. Update 3.1.0 supposedly got rid of bugs, but instead added more. The file for a completed game displays “Special Stage 1”, instead of “Completed”. Also it shows a slot for a seventh Chaos Emerald, even though in the first Sonic you can only obtain six. Somehow, they added back a bug that was previously dealt with. I can’t even get rid of the freaking ads now. SEGA, you can do better than this. In Sonic’s words, ”Come on, step it up!”
Ads still show after paying for ad free version, game crashes at spring yard zone 3
by Oh the humanity on 2019/03/10 16:48
The software is fantastic. It runs better here than it did on the original hardware. Very impressive work, however still showing me ads every time I launch the app after paying for an ad free version is basically theft. The controls aren’t terrible, but not much better either. They decided to emulate an analog stick instead of a digital d pad. Why? No genesis console had an analog stick. This makes certain parts of the game difficult as you really don’t know if you are moving the virtual analog stick to the limit or not. If you try and find out you exceed the touch area for the analog stick and of course sonic just stops, hopefully not at a bad time. Edit: after playing for a bit I can’t get past spring yard zone 3 sonic just dies at the end. Seriously Sega? Software testing too much to ask?
Awesome, but there’s a nasty game breaking glitch.
by Gameranx on 2019/03/23 12:04
Hey, normally when someone finds a glitch they leave a bad review, but it’s only a temporary problem with new devices, so I understand. However, it is a very bad glitch. On new devices Scrap Brain 2 will glitch during the cutscene causing Sonic to go out of bounds meaning that his only escape is death. That is unfortunate. I’m sure it’s getting fixed soon though, so I don’t care all that much. Edit: I found another “glitch” that lets you unlock Tails and Knuckles without beating a saved game, so it isn’t such a big deal. After all, the glitch happens on the second to last non-boss stage in the game, so you aren’t missing much.
Fun! But two things...
by Burrito Kat on 2017/07/17 17:29
First off, this game is super fun! I have beaten it and I love it! I've gotten most of the achievements (like get all of the Chaos Emeralds) and recently went for the Time Trial Achievement for getting a time total of 45 minutes or less. My total time for Time Trials is 38 minutes. It notified me that I got the achievement. But went I went to see it in person it says it hasn't been achieved yet. Please fix this! Also the controls are annoying sometimes. Like I hit jump and one of two things happened: Either I did not jump, but I hit the button , or I'd jump and the button would LITERALLY STICK I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THAT IS POSSIBLE and I couldn't jump and I'd die. But other than that this game is the best!
Pretty good but there’s a few really annoying bugs
by Jesse (I am a boy!!!!) on 2019/01/14 15:44
The game runs pretty good but there are two bugs that get really annoying. The first one happens when I resume the game and get an ad after the ad it takes me back to the logos when you boot up the game forcing me too restart the level and it seems if you retry the special stages it will skip to the next act like what happened to me I’m on starlight act 2 and I go into a special stage and then retry the special stage when I finish it I end in scrap brain with only 4 emeralds and you can’t acces special stages in scrap brain so I basically can’t get the good ending please fix these P.s what drugs were you on when you made the special stages
I love Classic Sonic
by Amouna777💕💋 on 2019/04/27 13:36
I love that this is here for nostalgia reasons and I like games that I grew up on. It still looks the same and game play is a bit odd to get used to on the phone but I’m still happy over all besides one big thing (hence the loss of a star). But to see that I can’t shut off the sound after I paid to use the app isn’t good. I’m stuck listening to techno instead of Sonics awesome soundtrack they had lol. But the only way I can lower is with my phone. I found the settings in the home screen and while in game but it doesn’t work at all. Hope this will be fixed and it would be awesome if there was a way to have no techno but classic sounds and music instead.
Looks great - controls make playing difficult
by E.lizabeth33 on 2017/11/04 17:38
I really like the look of the game. It feels and plays just like the old sonic on the sega, but the controls for playing on the phone make playing really annoying. It places your thumbs over a huge portion of the bottom of the screen (right where you’d need to look to see what’s coming) making it impossible to anticipate whether there’s a guy you need to avoid, or a cliff you should jump, etc. You run through these course so quickly that losing that space makes a big difference in game play. I like the game and would recommend for anyone who doesn’t mind that your thumbs coverup so much of where sonic is running, but I probably wouldn’t keep this game.

So a week ago i just had ads when I loaded the app and started a level and when I died. But now ads will pop up, AS IM PLAYING and brings me to safari which the website is a virus.. like boi. Than I load it back up, unpause it. It counts down to zero... and welp, you guessed it, before I get time to blink..... an ad that prevents from getting back into the game.. and brings me back to the stupid website virus crap. The rage this brought me, all I want to do is enjoy the game of my childhood. You know what if you want ads cool make your money, but preventing the gameplay.. by put ads in the match itself, makes me which I may if this isn’t fixed just stop playing this. If this happens to be fixed I will give this a FULL FIVE STARS. Like I said before, last week I had no issue with ads before and after a round. Thank you
Great gameplay, horrible problems.
by introverted pig on 2018/06/30 15:58
The game itself is great but I have a few problems. Instead of just restarting you at the beginning of the level, you go to the title screen after losing your third life which brings up another problem; the adds. I know that they earn money through the adds, or lack their of, but every action you make, you have to wait through a long add with a tiny “x” to exit the add, if you have a small screen you’ll usually get sent to the App Store five times before getting out of the add. The worst offender of all is the final fantasy wall defense interactive add. It takes a long time to get out of, it’s boring, it has an even smaller “x”, and if the wall breaks, you cannot get back to the game. Please fix these problems Sega!
Players who bought the game shouldn't suffer ads
by 1234Digital on 2017/07/24 04:08
Your kidding right? I paid full price for the ability to play this game over and over where ever I want on my iPod. Now you added adds, and although I paid for an ad free game you telling me I need to pay more money to be able to get past level 1 without an ad after it crashing the game. Not only that, I can't play it out of my house anymore because iPods don't have data and you want me to watch the ads. Basically your saying I wasted my money on buying it when I could've gotten it for free and remove the ads. Please, make players who BOUGHT the game have ads automatically removed as this is absolutely rediculous. I mean I could've got this on an emulator and it would be better! You can't even enter debug mode😑. Pleaaaaase fixed I payed money for this!
Ads, required online, otherwise great
by Blakekl on 2018/10/10 15:46
The port itself is great, but the ads are ridiculous. I’ve never seen a game display so many ads before. Start a game? Watch an ad. Die? Watch an ad. Beat an act? Watch an ad. PAUSE THE GAME? Watch an ad to resume. So don’t try responding to texts or anything unless you want to watch ANOTHER ad afterwards. I’d gladly pay for this game to fix this issue except for the other major problem. You must be connected to the internet to play. I don’t understand why, unless it’s just to make sure you see the ads. Game Center can track the achievements and such and upload them when connected. Can you play without being online with ads removed? If so, I’ll gladly pay for this great port of a classic I love.
Why would you ask why I 5 star it?
by Chinauresti on 2017/12/07 10:59
This game, um... This game has the best debug mode! I clearly like the spin dash because arcade doesn’t work. Here it comes! Dada dada dedolo! 20x Level Select Screen! Here is how to do it: press SEGA, then the part where it says press start button, just slide 2 fingers in the middle then swipe it. Here you go! Level select screen! Now hidden credits. Maybe this works in jp and eu... ok! I’m back! Press SEGA 2 times in the logo, then after that... yay! You can change characters in level select. 00 Sonic Tails, 01 Sonic alone, 02 Tails alone, 03 Knuckles alone (chuckles.) that’s all!
THIS IS AMAZING but...
by djthecreator on 2019/03/17 00:39
Absolutely adore the sonic franchise especially since this was the first sonic game I ever placed I always enjoyed zooming through levels so quickly the camera can’t keep up but there’s only one issue there’s a bug on scrap brain zone act 2 that when you finish the level the screen pans up very quickly and prevents you from seeing anything but the ceiling of the stage if you try to run forward you just fall to your death and I understand your supposed to enter act 3 but that’s not the case watch out for that bug
Why only sonic 1&2 and some other stuff
by dcorsino on 2018/10/21 15:32
So I’m a big sonic fan and always wanted to try sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles but they are not on the App Store and once you beat the game the fun ends (yes I also got all chaos emeralds) so if you could make sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles for mobile that be awesome but still the games are good also why can’t you turn super as tails or knuckles in sonic2. But really I don’t care how the game is it’s awesome but just add sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles and maybe people will like it way more. I bet lots of people would want more ports.
Good port!
by Inbox Fix! on 2017/09/17 14:46
This is by far the best way to play Sonic 1! The save system is great since it saves up to your current act instead of the zone like in Sonic 3 or Mania. The restore purchases thing worked fine (I already bought the game WAY before they made it free) just like on Sonic CD. Sonic 1 is one of my favorite Sonic games and all the extra features (Tails, Knuckles, Time Trials, Spindash) make it even better! Also, why would you say no to the Sonic 3 port Sega? Come on, it would make you tons of money, and everyone would love it! What are you thinking?
I love the game!!! But it won’t get rid of the ads 😕
by SuperNoelio on 2018/06/20 16:29
I’ve always loved Sonic the Hedgehog games, and this was a great way to play my favorite classics on the go! But, I had bought the game long before Sega Forever started, and now it’s asking me to buy ad free thing again. It doesn’t remember my purchase, even when I tap “restore purchase” nothing changes, so I tried buying it again, but still nothing. 😕 So if I could somehow get a refund and get that fixed? I would be most grateful, other than that, love the game!! Thank you!
The description is a lie
by TOO MUCH GOAT on 2018/01/18 19:10
The description says it is optimized for mobile devices. I get the game and load up a new save. Not only did it run like complete garbage, it didn’t take my controllers inputs. I tried every button, and nothing happened. Not even a buggy “Only the pause button works” kind of deal. I have a steel series nimbus and that works with every single controller supported game so far, except this one, so I highly doubt it’s an issue with the controller. I don’t recommend getting this game, even if you are a sonic fan, all because it runs like Steven hawking in a 100m dash (The joke being he doesn’t run properly, if at all.)
Good game but why WiFi
by eric vico on 2019/04/05 19:07
This game is good but there’s one problem I’ve been having with playing on the go back in 2013 you did not have to connect to the internet to play but now you have to connect to the internet in order to play and that’s the one problem I’ve had in one of these sonic games I mean why WiFi it’s not like we’re playing online and wouldn’t that problem be wasting data or LTE you must give it an update where we don’t have to connect to the WiFi just to play
Needs features
by I ❤️ minecraft from christian on 2018/11/21 23:57
Hey SEGA, I love sonic the hedgehog though I want some more options, what I have in mind is a villain side where you be the villain, my second thought is mini games where there is like build your boss and fight where you can make a boss and fight it, my third idea is back to the future boss and the boss is the Bolivians though the shooter is eggman or robotnik and the driver is robot sonic and eggman or robotnik has the driver hat on and there is the van and robot sonic has the shooter hat, I’ll really appreciate it, please do that! 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇
SEGA fix this!
by Productive Shopper on 2018/07/06 18:25
This update broke the game pretty much. There’s no pause button and for some reason on my completed save files it says I’m at special stage 1 and I have all 6 chaos emeralds and even if I didn’t it still shouldn’t say this because special stages aren’t even levels. If you haven’t updated your game do NOT do it. Oh and did I mention that you will have to pay again to remove ads after you update this? SEGA you need to stop this SEGA forever thing you’re doing I still haven’t updated Sonic CD because it’s part of the SEGA forever collection now. So what I’m trying to say here is fix the bugs that are with this update.
GREAT game but..
by Awesoemboy#1 on 2017/09/13 20:07
I LOVE this game. I haven't paid anything and it is still fun, I unlocked tails for free (by beating the game with sonic) and when I played with tails, after it didn't unlock Knuckles I played sonic with tails and knuckles still wasn't unlocked. I would like to know if I have to pay to unlock him, also in this game the sonic + tails addition like sonic 2 doesn't really work in this game, most of the time tails does things that make it frustrating to complete levels, meanwhile tails alone is awesome! Sega please make knuckles playable for the free version, either that or my games glitched if so please fix this.
Great game but patch is definitely needed
by Lover man 0413 on 2018/04/27 02:16
Okay so I am really new to the 2d Sonic games and all I can say is that this is game is nothing less than amazing. The only problem I have with it is just this little glitch that actually haunts the progress in the game. I’ve been stuck on “Act 3” for the third place and not because the difficulty but rather whenever I defeat Eggman, Sonic will uncontrollably walk off the stage, dying, after press the button. Don’t know if I’m the only person with this issue but it’s really annoying and honestly really hurts the gaming experience for me
Great but...
by Adfam4 on 2017/12/04 22:02
Not only is this game great it was the best game I ever had but now it’s supported by ads which can do things like bring up ads that can be exited out of or have ads that pop up every time You go in and out of the pause menu and when I’m trying to exit out of and ad that popped up when I paused the game it takes a long time for the ad to go away and then while I’m still pressing exit button it suddenly goes away and I end up pressing he pause button again... plz move the exit button somewhere else not so close to the pause button it’s overall a great game though
Bug Fix
by lynus1325 on 2019/04/03 20:18
I loved Sonic the Hedgehog when I was growing up but there is one major problem I got all the way to Scrap Brain zone act 2 and every time I get to the goal the cutscene to take me to act 3 zooms all the way up in the generators and then when Eggman jumps on the platform switch I die and have to restart act 2 again over and over I believe you guys mistakenly put the goal pole at the wrong place it’s supposed to be on the edge of where the spike ball swings are please fix this I don’t want to lose my progress and start all the way from the beginning
Good, But Not Great.
by Not a nutrition guru on 2018/11/22 15:23
Sonic the Hedgehog was one of the first Sonic games I ever played. It wasn't on the original Genesis, though. I played on the Sega Mega Collection for the PS2. When I saw it returning on mobile along with Sonic the Hedgehog 2, I was blown away. When I first got it the game was great, but now it has A LOT of problems. Now the minimum acts for each section in Time Attack now went down to two, instead of the regular three. Now all the stages are mixed, and I can barely play any of the Special Stages unless I'm ok with GOING TO EVERY STAGE WITH 50 RINGS ALL OVER AGAIN! I'm very sad that SEGA won't accept S3&K on mobile. Well at least we have Sonic 3 Angel Island Revisited. Buh - bye!
Restore purchase button is broken
by blightthememething on 2018/06/19 17:52
I’ve bought this game already then I deleted it to save storage, Then I reinstalled the game then I got to the remove ads button then it would bring up the option to type in my Apple ID password and then I would type it in and.... Nothing happened it closed the option to type my Apple ID password then the ads were not removed! it also wouldn’t load the option to type in my Apple ID password Please help
Great, but ad overridden
by 2bitguy on 2018/06/04 16:17
(Anything in this review can be applied to Sonic 2 as well) The port is a brilliant idea, especially for being free. Unfortunately, ads will come up every time you do almost anything. For some reason, you need INTERNET anytime you play this, only for the ADs... Shouldn’t need internet to play these games. However, there is a solution. You can download the older version of the game(s) on an iPod Touch 3 or 4, iPad 1, or iPhone 3GS. No ads are present, don’t need internet, and everything’s great again. This is a great game, provided you have an older device.
Ads won’t stop!!!😡
by tripleogteetee on 2018/04/01 18:31
I only downloaded this game for my young son. Because he is so young, I don’t want all the ads popping up on his games so I purchased the game to remove the ads. The ads still pop up and I am required to “restore my purchase” at once to twice a day when he he plays the game to again remove the ads. This is wrong since I paid to have them removed. I should not have to continuously remove the ads since that was the reason I paid for this free game!!!! That is dishonest business! I never leave reviews but this needs to be put out there because of my son didn’t like the game so much I would have been deleted this app just because the removing the ads option for money is a money SCAM!!!
The Classic Reborn
by Tre'sPug on 2019/04/07 04:19
This is the best game in the sega forever collection and I am wondering two things how do you play as tails or knuckles and 2 I have a suggestion for the swag forever collection and I know you might have not made this game or you did but the game I want to suggest is Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker But the genisis version but overall I think this is a very good game and I do want you to make my suggestion a part of the sega forever collection so thanks sega your the best by Nintendo because super Mario run sucked but still thanks

NEEDS BUG FIXES FOR IPHONE X

Getting stuck/glitches into a wall after beating the boss in scrap brain zone for months on iPhone X. Not the only person this is happening to. Please fix this!!!!!!!!
This is from the 1991!
by shadow 2736 on 2019/05/23 23:59
My dad play this as a kid so I wanted to try out the IPAD version so it was pretty ok
Not good
by Icantbelieveitsnotbutta on 2019/05/23 16:32
Buttons consistently stick and all I do is die. Great idea and I was very excited about this but there is absolutely no point in playing it if the buttons don’t react at all!
Bug
by justinmorrissey1014 on 2019/05/22 23:33
I’ve recently encountered a glitch in scrap brain zone act 2 after completing the act. During the cutscene sonic glitches in the wall and then dies. Can this issue please get fixed. Thanks. Enjoy playing all the wonderful classics on my iPhone!
Scrap Brain Zone Act 2 Finish Glitch
by BHGodlyGovt on 2019/05/22 18:49
Great game, lots of fun. However, echoing what several others have said, there is a glitch at the end of Scrap Brain Zone Act 2. After you pass the end of the Act and it counts up your points, it places you in the middle of a bunch of metal that covers the entire screen so that you can’t see what you are doing. Instead of showing the cutscene that is supposed to send you to Scrap Brain Zone Act 3, you drop and die. Great game, but this needs to be fixed. Obviously hasn’t been fixed yet, despite the last review from March 29th. Need to get your act together and fix this glitch!!!
Can’t progress
by Ploobalooby!!! on 2019/05/22 00:20
At the end of Scrap Brain zone 2 you die automatically. Please fix.
Issue with scrap brain zone

What the hell is wrong with the ending of act 2 of scrap brain zone
Just one thing
by Bluefoxx517 on 2019/05/20 09:17
I love this port everyone that has made a review I agree with them but one thing IS wrong and it’s nothing with the visuals it’s a bug at scrap brain zone and I’ve tried over and over to get it to work it might be a big phone problem since I have the IPhone XR so the game might need an update so I can finish off Eggman!!!
Chao Garden App, Please! 😃
by MBazzell on 2019/05/19 19:21
Before I write something about this port I have to make a request/sugestion for an app that I am very surprised you have not published yet, Sega... I want a Chao Garden stand alone app on my iphone/iPad! 😃 Back when Sonic the Hedgehog was originally released, I played it around the clock that summer. I’d go to sleep and experience high anxiety yet amazing 1st person dreams of leaping from platform to platform across lava while avoiding swinging spikey pendulums. It’s an incredible memory of one of my most favored dreams ever. Of what I’ve played of these ports, the controls are surprisingly successful. Thank you for porting Sonics games to a device I have in my pocket all the time.

Glitch
by JC_films on 2019/05/15 15:26
In scrap brain zone act 2 when you finish and the cutscene starts the camera goes up and you can’t see anything and when egg man drops you, you don’t start act 3, you just die. I give the game 5 stars cause the game still works great and it’s a beautiful game, it works great, and it’s just like the original. Nothings wrong with the game other than that part. I hope when it’s fixed, there’s not another glitch like that.

by Slender demon on 2019/05/13 12:49
There are ads when you pause the game, or do pretty much anything that isn’t influencing your character’s position, I’ll change the review when this problem is fixed
You need the Internet to play now
by Schmidty94521 on 2019/05/12 21:10
Hello. I bought this game and paid full price for it. I like playing the game when I don’t have the Internet. I updated the software and now I’m forced to see ads and forced to play the game with internet connection. This has prevented me from playing and paying future SEGA products.
Zone bug
by Basket traveler on 2019/05/12 18:33
This game is fun to play on my free time at work, and it’s great time killer. I love that I can relive my childhood on my phone. Only issue is, there is a bug at the end of the level of scrap brain act 2. When you finish the level, the screen moves up, and then you can’t see sonic, only a wall, you can move sonic to the right and then you get stuck, you can’t move after that and then you fall down and die, having to restart the level all over again. Please fix this bug, id love to beat the game
Don’t bother
by Vee12434456 on 2019/05/12 03:00
You can’t play the game without it pausing in the middle of you playing to play an add. I can’t even try the game out before buying it. It stops me from playing as if I’ll get tired of the ads and buy it. To me that’s not fair. I want to get somewhat addicted to the nostalgia of the game before I think of purchasing it but keep interrupting the game and it makes me think what else would happen if I purchased it.
Good, but why does it need internet?
by Silly129 on 2019/05/12 01:05
The app is a good port/emulation of the original Sonic game. Everything is fine, until you realize you need the internet to play it. What the heck, Sonic Team.
scrap brain act 2 needs update
by Perpetual Snooze on 2019/05/12 00:55
as others have noted, the end of scrap brain act 2 is glitchy and won’t let you finish the level or advance to act 3 :p
Adds
by Greg18327 on 2019/05/11 04:27
It’s bad. I love running around green hill zone again, but in the first ten minutes of it being downloaded I get 6 adds. It is filled to the brim with adds. When sonic looses all his lives you see 2 adds of the bat. It’s just not good Hope you can cut down on the adds.
You frickin fricks.
by SonicLoverSammy64 on 2019/05/11 00:28
When will you learn that your actions have consequences?
Sega hear me out
by Kirby Swag on 2019/05/09 21:23
Overall I think the game aged ok but there is still a problem. In Scrap Brain Zone act 2 when you finish it the game glitches up and it forces you into a wall and then into the void forcing to lose a life and you have to start all over. Please fix this and thank you for fixing this glitch in Spring Yard zone
Ads on the actual game

Unclickable ads

Everytime i open the game it starts with an ad with a metal x everytime i click it it doesnt work,Sega you need to fix that
No volume
by I did NOT vote for trump on 2019/05/05 08:02
This game would be cool if it actually had sound! For some reason whenever I play it there’s no volume and I’ve check a million times to make sure I got the volume on my phone turned up and it always is but theres no volume in the game

I had a friend who bought this game. but then the SEGA forever update comes and he starts getting nonstop ads. i told him to buy the ad free version of the game, so he did. but guess what.... HE STILL GOT ADS. LISTEN UP SEGA! the whole paying for ads thing is a scam. so enjoy people's money that you got from them, you dumb*** scammers

Glitch in Labyrinth Zone Boss
by Foxy 6670 on 2019/04/28 14:15
In Labyrinth Zone Act 3, just before the sponges start to rise with the water, I pushed into the right wall and managed to get stuck there till I drowned. Please fix this, because I lost my last life on that glitch. Well, time to start the Impossible Zone *Erm... I mean Labyrinth Zone* from the beginning.

Scrap Brain Zone Act 2
by MJR40 on 2019/04/27 15:56
At the end of Act 2 Sonic disappears into a castle where you can’t see him, you can only move forward or jump and then after a certain period of time he just dies and you have to go back and restart the Act. This is really frustrating, as I have beaten the Act 5+ times now only to just start it over and basically can’t play anymore. Is this a glitch? Can it be fixed? How do you move on to Act 3?
I love Classic Sonic
by Amouna777💕💋 on 2019/04/27 13:36
I love that this is here for nostalgia reasons and I like games that I grew up on. It still looks the same and game play is a bit odd to get used to on the phone but I’m still happy over all besides one big thing (hence the loss of a star). But to see that I can’t shut off the sound after I paid to use the app isn’t good. I’m stuck listening to techno instead of Sonics awesome soundtrack they had lol. But the only way I can lower is with my phone. I found the settings in the home screen and while in game but it doesn’t work at all. Hope this will be fixed and it would be awesome if there was a way to have no techno but classic sounds and music instead.
Still has glitches
by karlookis on 2019/04/27 04:14
Paid for the premium version. Have been enjoying the game with almost no issues. Until the end of Scrap Brain Zone 2. After you pass the level Sonic sorta gets stuck in the wall and can’t go anywhere. Eventually he falls into a void and you get the game over screen. I’ve got back about 6 times and still the same. Pretty annoying to not be able to finish the game. Kinda feels like a waste of money now.
Love it
by gambeno6 on 2019/04/26 13:54
I love it but I don’t like how you have to beat the game to unlock talis and K.t.e but love it
Scrap brain zone 2
by alex0001122244 on 2019/04/25 01:25
Each time I beat the level it ends up doing something and i end up losing. I’ve tried resetting the game but once I reached that level the same thing happened.
The greatest
by Rudad5 on 2019/04/24 04:43
The greatest game ever made and i was so glad i found it on the app store!
What a great classic
by Doug Coleman on 2019/04/23 23:46
Amazing, it started a great series of games, its definitely a classic. It sometimes can be challenging but a fun challenge. It is also sometimes can be annoying with the ads, please fix the annoying ads. Also SEGA take a few words from the fans, have Christian Whitehead remake sonic 3 and knuckles on mobile, and bring sonic 1,2,and 3 & kunckes on to pc for cybershell(a YouTuber). Thank you for 3 classics on mobile
Scrap Brain Bug
by marulloj on 2019/04/23 16:23
Love this game and platform but there is a bug where you can’t finish the game. At the end of Scrap Brain Yard when you finish the level you just die and can’t progress forward. Please fix this and this turns into a 5 star game.

Fix The Stupid glitch in scrap Brain zone
by CoachKillerCam on 2019/04/18 23:06
I gave it 2 stars because it is a great game and I gave it 2 because of the stupid glitch in scrap brain the camera goes to the top screen and when you fall in act 3 instead of act 3 you die and stay in act 2. IT IS REALLY BAD!😤👎
Idk
by Bob271636271 on 2019/04/18 03:32
Sonic is a classic game that I love and enjoy but I personally hate games that are free, but then say you have to buy something to remove ads or something else that makes the game inconvenient.

Ohh boy. A bug.
by aguywhowritesreviewssometimes on 2019/04/14 13:43
So, I found a bug. Yippee. Anyways, this is a very good game all and all, it’s just that this morning I was going through spring yard act 1, and if you play as knuckles and glide onto the buzz bomber at the beginning at just the right spot you can clip into the wall. Just a bug I thought I would share.
This Should be voted: Best sonic game of the year!
by SonicWacker55 on 2019/04/13 20:04
I can finally play with more than sonic! This time I actually get to play as tails and knuckles. So, thank you SEGA for making this game
Why? Sega, Why?

Cannot finish Scrap Brain Act 2
by Alex2710 on 2019/04/11 00:53
The cut scene with egg man is glitched and send you out of pounds causing you to die and have to do the stage over, this happens every time.
Can’t finish the game!
by Artemio A. Jorge Ramos on 2019/04/10 19:17
In the recent updates there’s a glitch at the end of scrap brain zone act 2 where the camera moves way up and you can’t see sonic at all. If you keep running forward the “cutscene” never triggers and sonic will end up falling of a ledge and dies. This is a big problem because I love sonic the hedgehog and I completed sonic 2 and I want to complete sonic 1 but this problem takes the fun out of the game and I loose interest in playing it.
Please make a new update please?
by Alexander Cortez Maruri on 2019/04/07 19:15
This game is pretty good but there’s a lil glitch in Act 2 of Scrap Brain Zone... when you get to the cutscene where you see Robotnik jump on the button before Act 3 the screen moves all the way up and I automatically die... please fix this.
The Classic Reborn
by Tre'sPug on 2019/04/07 04:19
This is the best game in the sega forever collection and I am wondering two things how do you play as tails or knuckles and 2 I have a suggestion for the swag forever collection and I know you might have not made this game or you did but the game I want to suggest is Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker But the genisis version but overall I think this is a very good game and I do want you to make my suggestion a part of the sega forever collection so thanks sega your the best by Nintendo because super Mario run sucked but still thanks
Good game but why WiFi
by eric vico on 2019/04/05 19:07
This game is good but there’s one problem I’ve been having with playing on the go back in 2013 you did not have to connect to the internet to play but now you have to connect to the internet in order to play and that’s the one problem I’ve had in one of these sonic games I mean why WiFi it’s not like we’re playing online and wouldn’t that problem be wasting data or LTE you must give it an update where we don’t have to connect to the WiFi just to play

Scrap brain act 2 is glitched. Every time you finish it, camera moves up then level ends and doesn’t continue. Have to re do the act. Once fixed I’ll put back to 5 stars
Pretty good game
by mackydab7 on 2019/04/03 20:47
I mean sonic doesn’t go very fast the spin dash is very slow but it pretty good not too good though I would recommend sonic 2 and cd because it wasn’t slow it was fast it’s the point of the games but I love the game but needs easier levels and sonic should go faster but um I would recommend it
Bug Fix
by lynus1325 on 2019/04/03 20:18
I loved Sonic the Hedgehog when I was growing up but there is one major problem I got all the way to Scrap Brain zone act 2 and every time I get to the goal the cutscene to take me to act 3 zooms all the way up in the generators and then when Eggman jumps on the platform switch I die and have to restart act 2 again over and over I believe you guys mistakenly put the goal pole at the wrong place it’s supposed to be on the edge of where the spike ball swings are please fix this I don’t want to lose my progress and start all the way from the beginning
Camera issue
by Gamer32X on 2019/04/03 17:53
Every time I run through Scrap Brain Zone Act 2 at the end my camera moves up until I move left, then I lose a life for reason every single time. This is a problem that must be fixed

Had a very fun time playing, but I finally got to brain scrap zone 2 and at the end it glitches and won’t let me pass, it goes to a screen and then I die, and have to start the level over, I have tried everything almost, and I really don’t want to delete the app, I have an IPhone X by the way.
Need new update. Can’t finish zone.
by Brandonjw23/ Sonikku23 on 2019/03/30 01:03
What’s good sega and sonic team. I love you sonic games I have them all sonic 1 2 and cd even got two copies of sonic mania for the switch and ps4 plus sonic 4 ep 1and two (y’all need ep 3 just saying) but look in scrap brain zone act 2 at the end it have a glitch in it (again) where when you get done with the zone and moving in it the cut seen right before act 3 begin the camera movies all the way up where you can’t see it and when get to eggman where he jumps on the switch to drop you in to act 3 of scrap brain zone you automatically die and have to start the act all over again. And also when you get out of the game and goes back in or restart that act you lose a life and that’s a lil uncool so can y’all plz update this app again plz. Coming from a big sonic fan since the early 90’s the game need to fix its bugs fast. And also side note can y’all plz come on out with a mobile port of sonic3k plz that game is way to cool to just let it past yea I and everyone else know by that now that MJ made the songs for sonic 3 and not in for knuckles part of the game. But at least let us download part or the whole thing to our phones and tablets plz thanks much love from one of your fans of the sonic’s series.

Awesome, but there’s a nasty game breaking glitch.
by Gameranx on 2019/03/23 12:04
Hey, normally when someone finds a glitch they leave a bad review, but it’s only a temporary problem with new devices, so I understand. However, it is a very bad glitch. On new devices Scrap Brain 2 will glitch during the cutscene causing Sonic to go out of bounds meaning that his only escape is death. That is unfortunate. I’m sure it’s getting fixed soon though, so I don’t care all that much. Edit: I found another “glitch” that lets you unlock Tails and Knuckles without beating a saved game, so it isn’t such a big deal. After all, the glitch happens on the second to last non-boss stage in the game, so you aren’t missing much.

Scrap Brain Zone Act 2 Transition to Act 3
by Cheddar119 on 2019/03/20 20:35
I love this game in every way. Even the touch controls are manageable once you get used to them, but after wasting my time getting all six emeralds and trying to beat the game, I can’t because I keep dying during the transition from act 2 of scrap brain zone to act 3...
What the h**** is this I mean I just started playing this just now and
by arthur david castel on 2019/03/19 21:36
An ad came on and the third level is impossible to beat. and Nintendo is just better if I were you I would just get Super Mario Run. thanks for nothing hecking saga. but if you like avirtisemint then get this. infackt I will delete this game now good day you parbody you pec of garbage. I remember that you made a rip-off of Super Mario Bros on the saga genesis remember. to me saga is a pecs of 💩
It was good at one point, and now I can’t even enjoy it.
by Vito Demalteris on 2019/03/19 14:58
I remember when you had to pay to download the app and there were no ads. Those were the glory days. Now the app is plagued with ads to the point where I can’t even enjoy it anymore without an ad popping up on my screen out of nowhere and having to wait for the little X to come up. Also now I’m seeing that even after paying to remove the ads it doesn’t even completely get rid of them! Please, downgrade or upgrade it back to the way it was, the way it’s supposed to be.
Terrible Controls
by Dom Philbrick on 2019/03/19 13:41
I really wanted to like this game, but the controls made that impossible. Before I downloaded the game, I saw a lot of reviews saying that the controls were bad, but I never thought they would be THIS bad. For me, it was unplayable. I recommend you try this game just so you can see how bad the controls are, because words simply can’t describe this atrocity.

by djthecreator on 2019/03/17 00:39
Absolutely adore the sonic franchise especially since this was the first sonic game I ever placed I always enjoyed zooming through levels so quickly the camera can’t keep up but there’s only one issue there’s a bug on scrap brain zone act 2 that when you finish the level the screen pans up very quickly and prevents you from seeing anything but the ceiling of the stage if you try to run forward you just fall to your death and I understand your supposed to enter act 3 but that’s not the case watch out for that bug
Still unbeatable.
by SomeRandomPerson221 on 2019/03/16 20:03
I found a bug on iPhone XR on Scrap Brain Zone Act 2. When you beat the level, and it goes to the part where Dr. Robotnik presses a button to send you to “Act 3”, it instead sends Sonic in a wall that I cannot escape. Please fix this so the game can be beatable.

Wonderful port, terrible controls
by Aurafox1 on 2017/08/10 21:56
I've only played the free version, but I absolutely love this port of the game! The screen is zoomed out so you can see a lot more clearly and it's incredible to finally play Sonic 1 with the spin dash rather than the mediocre emulations of the original genesis title you see everywhere. In the free version, I haven't found the ads to be intrusive at all. I heard the premium version still has ads which definitely needs to be fixed, but other than that, the inclusion of Tails and Knuckles seems well worth the money. There's just one major problem preventing me from buying the game: controls. I get that it's a mobile app, so there's not much you can really do, but I cannot stand using on-screen buttons for game like this. Every time I try to turn around, I accidentally end up rolling, often leading to me rolling right off into a spike or pit. Similarly, I might just be trying to jump forward but accidentally spin dash, or roll and suddenly lose all of my momentum. I would absolutely love if this port could be made available on consoles and/or through Steam. I would love to play such a wonderful port the way it deserves to be played! Maybe if Sonic Mania is successful?
It’s Still Sonic 1
by The Autman on 2018/02/15 05:20
Christian Whiteheadand his team have provided the same classic Sonic game that kick-started SEGA’s mascot into the spotlight, and they have also made substancial improvements along the way. Widescreen gives you a much better view of what’s ahead and how to react, a stable framerate makes the controls buttery-smooth, and the inclusion of the spin dash makes certain sectiona a lot less of a hassle. The options to play as Tails and Knuckles are nice touches as well, allowing you to explore the levels in ways you never have before. All that said, while the game is still the classic Sonic 1, that means it has many of the downsides of the original that no remake can fix. Save for Green Hill, the overall level design leaves7 something to be desired (Marble and Labrinth are especially boring), the bosses are beyond easy to beat, and the special stages give me headaches from two angles; one comes from the constant spinning of the stage, and the other comes from how downfight frustrating they are. Overall, the downsides are mostly mostly mitigated by the touch-ups from mobile port, and it’s worth trying out if you haven’t played Sonic 1 before.
Almost awesome
by Axis Destroyer on 2018/10/26 22:41
Being the lame-o that I am, I’ve never played the original Sonic the Hedgehog, so seeing that there’s an app where it’s free to play made me excited! I did see the hit and miss reviews which kinda had me nervous, but I got it to see myself. The number one complaint I and the others have is the ads. My lord. Press start, ad. Start stage, ad. End stage, ad. It takes away from the experience. I get why you have ads and that’s fine, but it’s how much you get in so little time that’s aggravating. The other thing is the controls. Now I know it’s hard to take a game that had a controller and put it on mobile, but sometimes the run control can be iffy. It just doesn’t respond sometimes. But the ad thing is what’s got me most annoyed. Really other than that, it’s a cool game. For someone like me who hasn’t played it, I like it. It’s almost awesome. Just needs a few fixes. I’d download it and try it and see if you can take the ridiculous amount of ads and iffy controls. I mean the game itself is fun. Just little stuff that takes away from it.
The new update created more problems than it fixed
by Strikinggamer on 2018/06/20 03:34
When I saw that Sonic 1 was receiving an update, I was excited as I thought that they would fix the glitch where the Game Center achievement “Beat the Clock” would not be distributed. However, after the update, I was shocked to see that it created more problems than fixes. Not only was the Game Center achievement still broken, but the update also added multiple new problems. The file select now shows 7 Chaos Emeralds, yet only 6 can be acquired through normal gameplay. And if the player goes into a Giant ring at the end of Act 1, after the special stage ends or they collect a Chaos Emerald, it takes the player to Act 3 and skips Act 2. Also, a completed file now says “Special Stage 1”, but selecting the file takes you to the “Stage Select” screen. To make matters worse, the Time Trial mode is completely broken. Each zone only contains 2 acts instead of the 3, and different zones will be merged with other zone selections (Ex: Green Hill zone Act 3 in the Marble zone selection). I am very disappointed with this update for Sonic 1, as I was hoping that things would improve much more as time went on. I hope that these issues are resolved as quickly as possible.
Time Attack Bug
by HyperSonic75 on 2018/06/24 23:24
So, ever since the new update, The time attack mode has been acting wonky. I ended up deleting my game, which is fine, then redownloading and THAT didn’t fix it. Here is the bug. Each Zone in time attack displays two levels which messes with EVERYTHING. Here is an example. Green Hill in Time Attack displays ONLY acts 1 and 2. But then, the problems arise. Marble Zone in Time Attack displays Green Hill Act 3 and Marble Act 1, see the problem? This means Spring Yard in Time Attack displays acts 2 and 3 of MARBLE Zone. Then Labyrinth in Time Attack displays the first two acts of SPRING YARD, Starlight in Time Attack displays Act 3 of Spring Yard and Act 1 of Labyrinth, Scrap Brain then displays The next 2 acts of Labyrinth. Final zone displays the first two acts of Starlight, and the special stage displays Act 3 of starlight and Act 1 of Scrap Brain. Meaning I can’t even access Scrap Brains Act 2 and 3, Final, or the Special stages in Time Attack, so please fix this! This game is amazing and I’d hate to see this bug ruin it!
Impossible glitch on iPhone XS
by R. Augustin A. Chenault on 2019/01/10 22:51
There is a glitch in Spring Yard act 3 that makes it impossible to pass the act. After beating Robotnik and opening the animal capsule, Sonic runs off the right edge of the screen and dies while the animals are jumping out of the capsule. This was not a one time glitch. This happened three times in a row and I got a game over. I also noticed that you can see the edge of the game window during the end of special stage score screen. I believe the edge of the game window does not extend far enough on the iPhone XS screen, allowing Sonic to run past the edge of the game window and fall off the right edge of the level and die, or some similar behavior. A previous review addressed the same issue and the developer response was the dev tram was aware of the problem and working on it. That was 8 months ago and the problem is still present, despite a game patch coming out one month ago. As a software dev myself, I am embarrassed of such unprofessional work. Please patch this glitch so I may update my one-star review. Addendum: on iPhone SE, the game runs super-slow, like at 75% speed. What is with all these bugs?
Simply Terrible
by Anython on 2017/11/25 21:09
I would enjoy this game a lot, if I actually got to play the game! There are so many ads it literally crashes my game before I even reach the "Start Game" button. I can hardly complete a stage, because whenever I try I always crash and have to restart my game. It's so bad that if an ad is over 10 seconds long it goes right back to the starting screen. Like seriously SEGA and Christian Whitehead you can do much better than this. I managed to beat the game, but I no longer want to play it ever again yet alone put my hands on this game ever again when all I know I'll be getting is ads all over the place. Also why does anyone need to pay to get no ads, I wouldn't mind the ads if they didn't ruin the game and the overall gameplay experience, but buying no ads in this game seems almost mandatory with the fact that there are ads everywhere. Honestly, if ads are ever used in games it should be done correctly and should never affect the gaming experience, and this is a perfect example of how not to use ads in games.
Pretty nice!
by The Honest Review Ninja on 2018/06/29 15:11
I wanted to see if there was a Sonic game for my iPad, and this showed up! I downloaded it immediately! I don’t really care for the controls. To me, they make the game a little more challenging but that’s what makes it better for me! Not too easy, not too hard! However, I have one complaint: The amount of ads in this game is...well... that’s why this app has a 4 star rating. I don’t usually care for ads. The only problem I have here is that the ads are HUMONGOUS (in size). ONE AD WAS SO BIG THAT IT COVERED THE WHOLE SCREEN!!! I COULDN’T EVEN SEE A X BUTTON SO I HAD TO CLOSE THE APP. Anyways, if you’re going to have ads, please, make them so that we can see an X button and that they aren’t humongous. I know you guys won’t read this, however this note also goes to people considering to install this app. I say “Get the app, but beware of ads.” Have a nice day, reader!
I LOVE SEGA
by AOFRSF-Z on 2018/08/30 01:36
I love the speedy games with sonic or captain Falcon (More than Mario). But theirs a game that I played 11 years ago I’m really requesting for cause of my childhood (I’m still a kid though) and that game is knuckles choatix. This game made me realize that I just grew up with f-zero (Nintendo) I also grew up with knuckles chaotix (SEGA). knuckles was my all time favorite sonic character even when I never knew I grew up with him ( I figured I grew with him because of sonic paradox after seeing realistic characters of chaotix but what what really jumped me was the music cause SEGA is mostly known for great music, blast progressing, and speed, so I did some research and after seeing the gameplay I gave me some flash backs. I lost the game because I broke it with f-zero and super mario world but I don’t know how I break the game though) but THANKS FOR MAKING THE ORIGINAL SONIC😃😄😁
Um
by Matt Matty Matthew on 2017/09/12 02:21
There are two glitches in sonic 1 iOS new 1 glitch is hard to find and the other one is that your rings from a ring box don't give you instant rings. I found this in spring yard act 3. Rip tails from 1992 to 2017 death to the zone will never name for its water. So tails is none to die because you steal the bubble. So what I do is give Tails a bubble before he drowns so when Tails timer was at zero he got it but was put in the death state so he died. So sad I know. I hope you like your death sonic see at the bottom of final zone, because SEGA are not putting a thing to stop you from falling off that platform which is right next to a pit. We all need the and knuckles and and sonic and and tails mode in this game. Oh and why do we internet? Is it because of the adds and achievements from Game Center.
Decent game
by whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat on 2018/10/06 18:24
This game is a really good copy of the original, but there are a few downsides. First of all, cut down on the ads. There are so many. There is one ad that pops up and it has an x at the top, but whenever I click on the x, it takes me to the App Store. So I have to sit through this long ad waiting to get to play the game. Some of these ads are very inappropriate, too. I’m a Christian, and I do NOT want to see blood and half dressed women. Along with the complaint of the ads, there are so many ads that my game freezes up every ten seconds. The freeze also cancels out jumps. I was playing as tails and was fixing to defeat eggman, when the game froze, and I ended up hitting his wrecking ball. And since I had zero rings and lives, I died and got a game over. I was SOOOO mad. Overall it is actually a really good game, it just needs some improvements. P.S., I love the inclusion of tails and knuckles. Don’t get rid of that.
Great memories! Terrible ad control
by Stef N Stuff on 2018/04/06 00:16
I love it. It’s great to feel the nostalgia of the very first sonic game, with a few added bonuses! However, there is a huge problem with ads, but I’m pretty sure everyone is well informed of that. One bug that constantly gets in my nerves is when I pause the game because I have to leave the app to do something (like a text). When I come back to the game, it’s expected that when I press continue, it shows me an add and then lets me play. However, and PLEASE FIX THIS SEGA, once it shows me the add, it takes me BACK to the PAUSE SCREEN, where again, I have to WATCH AN AD, and the cycle repeats. Sometimes it ACTUALLY lets me play, but others it doesn’t. Please fix this, but, other than that, a great app to help pass the time and replay those classic 2D levels.
Great Game!
by FranticFire on 2017/11/11 20:16
This is, Not going to lie, the greatest version of sonic 1 I’ve ever played. It’s as great as sonic mania, The only thing that’s bad about it is the ads, there’s just a ton of them, when you choose start game, BOOM, ad, when you game over, BOOM, ad, you get so many ads in the game it’s hard to say how many things you do in the game that gets you an ad, it’s hard to count. On the plus side though, the no ad version is only a dollar, some games make you pay more, looking at you dumb ways to die. Also the d-pad and jump button are to big but that’s minor. In conclusion, Sonic 1 is one of the best sonic games I’ve ever played, and I’m hoping they add sonic 3 and knuckles into the App Store, if it’s already added, I never saw it when I spawns scrolling though the App Store.
To: Sega
by Vilentane on 2018/05/14 19:44
Look, I know it’s tough, Sega. I get it. You’re star character runs the scene for a few golden years, then falls on hard times, that’s okay, really. We all love Sonic, and nothing can ever change that, but this, this butchered version of something meant for good, is unacceptable. Christian Whitehead’s port was fine the way it was before. I remember buying the original ports right after they came out, and the feeling of joy when I saw that what I was about to play really felt like a Sonic game. Not because it was a Classic game or because classic Sonic is the only “real” Sonic, but because I could see the care and attention to detail put in to make it real. But this version is a gross disrespect to those ports, and everything they stood for. I logged on one day to find ads over my Sonic, and all of that joy left me. You are a monster, Sega. I’m beginning to wonder if there is any hope for Sonic after all, if Whitehead’s work is such a joke to you.
Springzone 3 and iPhone X
by MM152 on 2018/06/27 13:20
U can’t get past springzone stage 3 on an iPhone X. It appears that after u defeat Robotnik and blow up the machine, sonic automatically runs off the screen to the right and dies. It almost seems like the wider screen of the iPhone X is causing the issue, where sonic runs on a part of the screen to the right that has no blocks for him to run on, so he falls and dies. The game resumes from the last save point. As a result, can’t get past this level. Good game, but 1 star until they can fix this. Developer responded this is not a priority to fix at this time. DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE AN IPHONE X!!! UPDATE 6/27: They deployed a fix which broke the ad-free version. So now, even though I paid for the app, I can’t get rid of the ads. Tech support says the problem is noted but can’t do anything until developers are prioritized to fix the issue. So, my review still hasn’t changed. DON’T PAY FOR THIS GAME UNTIL THEY FIX THESE ISSUES!!!
Dear people, you’re all not paid critics
by Thomasaurusrex on 2017/12/06 15:35
Thank you for noting on a phone, the controls are flat, and phone like.... your opinion will sway my like for games on my phone. I’m gonna get a genesis controller and wire it for my lightning port on my dang iPhone. Idiots. Look. If you like sonic. And you like sega? You’re probably going to like this game. If you don’t like flat layout controls, follow the rest of the “game critics” who are so highly rewarded and sought to be like and burn your phone, don the foil hat and go buy 5-600$ game consoles. Might as well buy one of each. And make sure those controllers are well lubed. Thanks Sega. I highly recommend the game. Always been a fan of Sonic 💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌 highly recommend
Unbeatable
by butricat on 2018/06/10 03:01
I was very excited to play this game for the first time. I bought the premium version and everything. Unfortunately, on my iPhone X at least, I can’t proceed past Spring Yard Zone Act 3, as whenever Sonic hits the animal capsule at the end of the stage, he runs off and immediately dies. You can be in complete control and replicate this. The game itself is fun and beautiful on iOS, but it gets 1 Star for a game-breaking bug that wasn’t even addressed in the latest software update. UPDATE: through the use of ANOTHER bug, I was able to skip the level. Hitting exit in the menu during a special stage will skip the next stage upon reloading and beating the special stage. However, I’ve found that Brain Scrap Zone Act 2 is ALSO broken! The transition does not properly work, scrolling up instead of right, making it ONCE AGAIN impossible to proceed. This is unacceptable after a supposed “bug fix” patch update.
Why the internet tethering?! (Update - fixed now)
by Danylos. on 2017/12/28 08:50
Let me first say that I love this game. I played it when I was a kid, and gladly play now. However, I am on the go a lot, and I specifically got it to pass time on my long trans-Atlantic flight. I even bought the anti-AD thing. Well, surprise, the game doesn't run without the internet. So let me ask you, developers, why the heck does a game from the 90s with no changes to its core mechanics require a constant internet connection in order to even launch?! I would give it a 5 star, but until this crap is patched out, 2 is all I can give. Update - the internet tethering has been fixed! This means I can finally update my review to a 5-star!
Great but... (THANK YOOOOOOOOOOOOOU!!!)
by MegaSuperab on 2017/10/04 11:41
Christian Whitehead's work is amazing and I love it. This port is fantastic, but there's one fatal flaw that NEEDS to be updated. I've had this game since 2013, meaning I paid $2 before SEGA Forever came along. When the SEGA Forever update came along, I lost my purchase and was unable to restore it. This was fixed in an update, and I got my ad-free purchase back... for a month. I'm now unable to restore the purchase AGAIN, and whoever is running this stupid service won't release an update to fix this. I've had this issue for months and no matter how many times I relaunch the app and press the button, it always says Time-out. I'm giving this app a 5 star rating because, again, this port is amazing. However, I won't be able to play it again until either I finally get my darn purchase to restore or, what I recommend, you put out an update. And don't give me that "Restore Purchase and reopen the app" crap, that's obviously not working. EDIT: YOU FINALLY FIXED IT! I CAN FINALLY PLAY WITHOUT ADS! AND YOU FIXED ALL THE OTHER ANNOYANCES I HAD! YOU ARE GODS! THANK YOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously, SEGA?
by DoIt48425 on 2018/07/03 00:57
I got this game when it first came out. Then, it was just emulation. To my surprise, it got an update that completely overhauled the game and made it great. But, when it became free, that was when things started to show signs of weakness. Since I bought the game beforehand, I wanted to restore my purchase. The game was now plagued with ads, so it was kind of annoying when I could not. An update later fixed that, but it was just a sign of things to come. Update 3.1.0 supposedly got rid of bugs, but instead added more. The file for a completed game displays “Special Stage 1”, instead of “Completed”. Also it shows a slot for a seventh Chaos Emerald, even though in the first Sonic you can only obtain six. Somehow, they added back a bug that was previously dealt with. I can’t even get rid of the freaking ads now. SEGA, you can do better than this. In Sonic’s words, ”Come on, step it up!”
Ads still show after paying for ad free version, game crashes at spring yard zone 3
by Oh the humanity on 2019/03/10 16:48
The software is fantastic. It runs better here than it did on the original hardware. Very impressive work, however still showing me ads every time I launch the app after paying for an ad free version is basically theft. The controls aren’t terrible, but not much better either. They decided to emulate an analog stick instead of a digital d pad. Why? No genesis console had an analog stick. This makes certain parts of the game difficult as you really don’t know if you are moving the virtual analog stick to the limit or not. If you try and find out you exceed the touch area for the analog stick and of course sonic just stops, hopefully not at a bad time. Edit: after playing for a bit I can’t get past spring yard zone 3 sonic just dies at the end. Seriously Sega? Software testing too much to ask?
Awesome, but there’s a nasty game breaking glitch.
by Gameranx on 2019/03/23 12:04
Hey, normally when someone finds a glitch they leave a bad review, but it’s only a temporary problem with new devices, so I understand. However, it is a very bad glitch. On new devices Scrap Brain 2 will glitch during the cutscene causing Sonic to go out of bounds meaning that his only escape is death. That is unfortunate. I’m sure it’s getting fixed soon though, so I don’t care all that much. Edit: I found another “glitch” that lets you unlock Tails and Knuckles without beating a saved game, so it isn’t such a big deal. After all, the glitch happens on the second to last non-boss stage in the game, so you aren’t missing much.
Fun! But two things...
by Burrito Kat on 2017/07/17 17:29
First off, this game is super fun! I have beaten it and I love it! I've gotten most of the achievements (like get all of the Chaos Emeralds) and recently went for the Time Trial Achievement for getting a time total of 45 minutes or less. My total time for Time Trials is 38 minutes. It notified me that I got the achievement. But went I went to see it in person it says it hasn't been achieved yet. Please fix this! Also the controls are annoying sometimes. Like I hit jump and one of two things happened: Either I did not jump, but I hit the button , or I'd jump and the button would LITERALLY STICK I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THAT IS POSSIBLE and I couldn't jump and I'd die. But other than that this game is the best!
Pretty good but there’s a few really annoying bugs
by Jesse (I am a boy!!!!) on 2019/01/14 15:44
The game runs pretty good but there are two bugs that get really annoying. The first one happens when I resume the game and get an ad after the ad it takes me back to the logos when you boot up the game forcing me too restart the level and it seems if you retry the special stages it will skip to the next act like what happened to me I’m on starlight act 2 and I go into a special stage and then retry the special stage when I finish it I end in scrap brain with only 4 emeralds and you can’t acces special stages in scrap brain so I basically can’t get the good ending please fix these P.s what drugs were you on when you made the special stages
I love Classic Sonic
by Amouna777💕💋 on 2019/04/27 13:36
I love that this is here for nostalgia reasons and I like games that I grew up on. It still looks the same and game play is a bit odd to get used to on the phone but I’m still happy over all besides one big thing (hence the loss of a star). But to see that I can’t shut off the sound after I paid to use the app isn’t good. I’m stuck listening to techno instead of Sonics awesome soundtrack they had lol. But the only way I can lower is with my phone. I found the settings in the home screen and while in game but it doesn’t work at all. Hope this will be fixed and it would be awesome if there was a way to have no techno but classic sounds and music instead.
Looks great - controls make playing difficult
by E.lizabeth33 on 2017/11/04 17:38
I really like the look of the game. It feels and plays just like the old sonic on the sega, but the controls for playing on the phone make playing really annoying. It places your thumbs over a huge portion of the bottom of the screen (right where you’d need to look to see what’s coming) making it impossible to anticipate whether there’s a guy you need to avoid, or a cliff you should jump, etc. You run through these course so quickly that losing that space makes a big difference in game play. I like the game and would recommend for anyone who doesn’t mind that your thumbs coverup so much of where sonic is running, but I probably wouldn’t keep this game.
...Please read
by Dude hi guy sup on 2018/03/12 21:15
So a week ago i just had ads when I loaded the app and started a level and when I died. But now ads will pop up, AS IM PLAYING and brings me to safari which the website is a virus.. like boi. Than I load it back up, unpause it. It counts down to zero... and welp, you guessed it, before I get time to blink..... an ad that prevents from getting back into the game.. and brings me back to the stupid website virus crap. The rage this brought me, all I want to do is enjoy the game of my childhood. You know what if you want ads cool make your money, but preventing the gameplay.. by put ads in the match itself, makes me which I may if this isn’t fixed just stop playing this. If this happens to be fixed I will give this a FULL FIVE STARS. Like I said before, last week I had no issue with ads before and after a round. Thank you
Great gameplay, horrible problems.
by introverted pig on 2018/06/30 15:58
The game itself is great but I have a few problems. Instead of just restarting you at the beginning of the level, you go to the title screen after losing your third life which brings up another problem; the adds. I know that they earn money through the adds, or lack their of, but every action you make, you have to wait through a long add with a tiny “x” to exit the add, if you have a small screen you’ll usually get sent to the App Store five times before getting out of the add. The worst offender of all is the final fantasy wall defense interactive add. It takes a long time to get out of, it’s boring, it has an even smaller “x”, and if the wall breaks, you cannot get back to the game. Please fix these problems Sega!
Players who bought the game shouldn't suffer ads
by 1234Digital on 2017/07/24 04:08
Your kidding right? I paid full price for the ability to play this game over and over where ever I want on my iPod. Now you added adds, and although I paid for an ad free game you telling me I need to pay more money to be able to get past level 1 without an ad after it crashing the game. Not only that, I can't play it out of my house anymore because iPods don't have data and you want me to watch the ads. Basically your saying I wasted my money on buying it when I could've gotten it for free and remove the ads. Please, make players who BOUGHT the game have ads automatically removed as this is absolutely rediculous. I mean I could've got this on an emulator and it would be better! You can't even enter debug mode😑. Pleaaaaase fixed I payed money for this!
Ads, required online, otherwise great
by Blakekl on 2018/10/10 15:46
The port itself is great, but the ads are ridiculous. I’ve never seen a game display so many ads before. Start a game? Watch an ad. Die? Watch an ad. Beat an act? Watch an ad. PAUSE THE GAME? Watch an ad to resume. So don’t try responding to texts or anything unless you want to watch ANOTHER ad afterwards. I’d gladly pay for this game to fix this issue except for the other major problem. You must be connected to the internet to play. I don’t understand why, unless it’s just to make sure you see the ads. Game Center can track the achievements and such and upload them when connected. Can you play without being online with ads removed? If so, I’ll gladly pay for this great port of a classic I love.
Why would you ask why I 5 star it?
by Chinauresti on 2017/12/07 10:59
This game, um... This game has the best debug mode! I clearly like the spin dash because arcade doesn’t work. Here it comes! Dada dada dedolo! 20x Level Select Screen! Here is how to do it: press SEGA, then the part where it says press start button, just slide 2 fingers in the middle then swipe it. Here you go! Level select screen! Now hidden credits. Maybe this works in jp and eu... ok! I’m back! Press SEGA 2 times in the logo, then after that... yay! You can change characters in level select. 00 Sonic Tails, 01 Sonic alone, 02 Tails alone, 03 Knuckles alone (chuckles.) that’s all!
THIS IS AMAZING but...
by djthecreator on 2019/03/17 00:39
Absolutely adore the sonic franchise especially since this was the first sonic game I ever placed I always enjoyed zooming through levels so quickly the camera can’t keep up but there’s only one issue there’s a bug on scrap brain zone act 2 that when you finish the level the screen pans up very quickly and prevents you from seeing anything but the ceiling of the stage if you try to run forward you just fall to your death and I understand your supposed to enter act 3 but that’s not the case watch out for that bug
Why only sonic 1&2 and some other stuff
by dcorsino on 2018/10/21 15:32
So I’m a big sonic fan and always wanted to try sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles but they are not on the App Store and once you beat the game the fun ends (yes I also got all chaos emeralds) so if you could make sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles for mobile that be awesome but still the games are good also why can’t you turn super as tails or knuckles in sonic2. But really I don’t care how the game is it’s awesome but just add sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles and maybe people will like it way more. I bet lots of people would want more ports.
Good port!
by Inbox Fix! on 2017/09/17 14:46
This is by far the best way to play Sonic 1! The save system is great since it saves up to your current act instead of the zone like in Sonic 3 or Mania. The restore purchases thing worked fine (I already bought the game WAY before they made it free) just like on Sonic CD. Sonic 1 is one of my favorite Sonic games and all the extra features (Tails, Knuckles, Time Trials, Spindash) make it even better! Also, why would you say no to the Sonic 3 port Sega? Come on, it would make you tons of money, and everyone would love it! What are you thinking?
I love the game!!! But it won’t get rid of the ads 😕
by SuperNoelio on 2018/06/20 16:29
I’ve always loved Sonic the Hedgehog games, and this was a great way to play my favorite classics on the go! But, I had bought the game long before Sega Forever started, and now it’s asking me to buy ad free thing again. It doesn’t remember my purchase, even when I tap “restore purchase” nothing changes, so I tried buying it again, but still nothing. 😕 So if I could somehow get a refund and get that fixed? I would be most grateful, other than that, love the game!! Thank you!
The description is a lie
by TOO MUCH GOAT on 2018/01/18 19:10
The description says it is optimized for mobile devices. I get the game and load up a new save. Not only did it run like complete garbage, it didn’t take my controllers inputs. I tried every button, and nothing happened. Not even a buggy “Only the pause button works” kind of deal. I have a steel series nimbus and that works with every single controller supported game so far, except this one, so I highly doubt it’s an issue with the controller. I don’t recommend getting this game, even if you are a sonic fan, all because it runs like Steven hawking in a 100m dash (The joke being he doesn’t run properly, if at all.)
Good game but why WiFi
by eric vico on 2019/04/05 19:07
This game is good but there’s one problem I’ve been having with playing on the go back in 2013 you did not have to connect to the internet to play but now you have to connect to the internet in order to play and that’s the one problem I’ve had in one of these sonic games I mean why WiFi it’s not like we’re playing online and wouldn’t that problem be wasting data or LTE you must give it an update where we don’t have to connect to the WiFi just to play
Needs features
by I ❤️ minecraft from christian on 2018/11/21 23:57
Hey SEGA, I love sonic the hedgehog though I want some more options, what I have in mind is a villain side where you be the villain, my second thought is mini games where there is like build your boss and fight where you can make a boss and fight it, my third idea is back to the future boss and the boss is the Bolivians though the shooter is eggman or robotnik and the driver is robot sonic and eggman or robotnik has the driver hat on and there is the van and robot sonic has the shooter hat, I’ll really appreciate it, please do that! 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇
SEGA fix this!
by Productive Shopper on 2018/07/06 18:25
This update broke the game pretty much. There’s no pause button and for some reason on my completed save files it says I’m at special stage 1 and I have all 6 chaos emeralds and even if I didn’t it still shouldn’t say this because special stages aren’t even levels. If you haven’t updated your game do NOT do it. Oh and did I mention that you will have to pay again to remove ads after you update this? SEGA you need to stop this SEGA forever thing you’re doing I still haven’t updated Sonic CD because it’s part of the SEGA forever collection now. So what I’m trying to say here is fix the bugs that are with this update.
GREAT game but..
by Awesoemboy#1 on 2017/09/13 20:07
I LOVE this game. I haven't paid anything and it is still fun, I unlocked tails for free (by beating the game with sonic) and when I played with tails, after it didn't unlock Knuckles I played sonic with tails and knuckles still wasn't unlocked. I would like to know if I have to pay to unlock him, also in this game the sonic + tails addition like sonic 2 doesn't really work in this game, most of the time tails does things that make it frustrating to complete levels, meanwhile tails alone is awesome! Sega please make knuckles playable for the free version, either that or my games glitched if so please fix this.
Great game but patch is definitely needed
by Lover man 0413 on 2018/04/27 02:16
Okay so I am really new to the 2d Sonic games and all I can say is that this is game is nothing less than amazing. The only problem I have with it is just this little glitch that actually haunts the progress in the game. I’ve been stuck on “Act 3” for the third place and not because the difficulty but rather whenever I defeat Eggman, Sonic will uncontrollably walk off the stage, dying, after press the button. Don’t know if I’m the only person with this issue but it’s really annoying and honestly really hurts the gaming experience for me
Great but...
by Adfam4 on 2017/12/04 22:02
Not only is this game great it was the best game I ever had but now it’s supported by ads which can do things like bring up ads that can be exited out of or have ads that pop up every time You go in and out of the pause menu and when I’m trying to exit out of and ad that popped up when I paused the game it takes a long time for the ad to go away and then while I’m still pressing exit button it suddenly goes away and I end up pressing he pause button again... plz move the exit button somewhere else not so close to the pause button it’s overall a great game though
Bug Fix
by lynus1325 on 2019/04/03 20:18
I loved Sonic the Hedgehog when I was growing up but there is one major problem I got all the way to Scrap Brain zone act 2 and every time I get to the goal the cutscene to take me to act 3 zooms all the way up in the generators and then when Eggman jumps on the platform switch I die and have to restart act 2 again over and over I believe you guys mistakenly put the goal pole at the wrong place it’s supposed to be on the edge of where the spike ball swings are please fix this I don’t want to lose my progress and start all the way from the beginning
Good, But Not Great.
by Not a nutrition guru on 2018/11/22 15:23
Sonic the Hedgehog was one of the first Sonic games I ever played. It wasn't on the original Genesis, though. I played on the Sega Mega Collection for the PS2. When I saw it returning on mobile along with Sonic the Hedgehog 2, I was blown away. When I first got it the game was great, but now it has A LOT of problems. Now the minimum acts for each section in Time Attack now went down to two, instead of the regular three. Now all the stages are mixed, and I can barely play any of the Special Stages unless I'm ok with GOING TO EVERY STAGE WITH 50 RINGS ALL OVER AGAIN! I'm very sad that SEGA won't accept S3&K on mobile. Well at least we have Sonic 3 Angel Island Revisited. Buh - bye!
Restore purchase button is broken
by blightthememething on 2018/06/19 17:52
I’ve bought this game already then I deleted it to save storage, Then I reinstalled the game then I got to the remove ads button then it would bring up the option to type in my Apple ID password and then I would type it in and.... Nothing happened it closed the option to type my Apple ID password then the ads were not removed! it also wouldn’t load the option to type in my Apple ID password Please help
Great, but ad overridden
by 2bitguy on 2018/06/04 16:17
(Anything in this review can be applied to Sonic 2 as well) The port is a brilliant idea, especially for being free. Unfortunately, ads will come up every time you do almost anything. For some reason, you need INTERNET anytime you play this, only for the ADs... Shouldn’t need internet to play these games. However, there is a solution. You can download the older version of the game(s) on an iPod Touch 3 or 4, iPad 1, or iPhone 3GS. No ads are present, don’t need internet, and everything’s great again. This is a great game, provided you have an older device.
Ads won’t stop!!!😡

I only downloaded this game for my young son. Because he is so young, I don’t want all the ads popping up on his games so I purchased the game to remove the ads. The ads still pop up and I am required to “restore my purchase” at once to twice a day when he he plays the game to again remove the ads. This is wrong since I paid to have them removed. I should not have to continuously remove the ads since that was the reason I paid for this free game!!!! That is dishonest business! I never leave reviews but this needs to be put out there because of my son didn’t like the game so much I would have been deleted this app just because the removing the ads option for money is a money SCAM!!!

This is the best game in the sega forever collection and I am wondering two things how do you play as tails or knuckles and 2 I have a suggestion for the swag forever collection and I know you might have not made this game or you did but the game I want to suggest is Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker But the genisis version but overall I think this is a very good game and I do want you to make my suggestion a part of the sega forever collection so thanks sega your the best by Nintendo because super Mario run sucked but still thanks
