An almost solid remake!

The game is a great remake plus it has widescreen ,but no competition mode.
A Funny Buggy Game
by Nasirfoxx on 2019/09/14 02:12
This game is so fun but the bugs were really funny. My screen even got stretched out after minimizing the app. Playing as Tails i glitched through the platforms for no reason, xD? Other then the bugs this game is fun, Please fix the annoying bugs though lol
WAY more fun then I expected
by MegaCass on 2019/09/12 00:01
I enjoyed this game a lot and I never expected it to be so fun and playing as Knuckles the echidna also brought a whole new experience and the music sounds really good and there’s so many zones too. And what I’m about to say has nothing to do with the game but I’m still asking, can you please add Sonic 3 and knuckles, I really want to play it one day
I lost my progress :(
by churchman300 on 2019/09/08 15:37
Edit: Today I was playing (Sunday, September 8) and I wanted to play. Keep in mind; I had 3 Complete save files, and was on Metropolis 3 with knuckles. So, the game was lagging so I closed it and got back on. I went to my saves, and ALL of the progress, was gone. That’s why I dropped a 1-star review. Update Your Game! Add Sonic 3 for iOS ya dang Sega Forever! 👎
I WANT SONIC MANIA

I WANT SONIC MANIA I WANT SONIC MANIA I WANT SONIC MANIA
God this port is bad
by Sparatan117 on 2019/09/06 07:24
The game runs fine (although just about any emulator in the past 10 years has been able to do that). The controls however are absolutely terrible. The thumb stick for controlling sonic is incredibly spongy and slow to respond. Don’t expect to make it to the end of the game, because you’ll probably never make it.
CLASSIC
by BlueMaster55 on 2019/09/04 01:34
I was searching the store to download sonic runners for the first time when I saw some of the classics genesis games. I downloaded the first one and was surprised. And BTW Sonic 2 was the first game I ever completed. I want more. Why not add Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles while you’re are it. AND KNUCKLES (lol)
My favorite game before this Glitch came along...
by Lilythehomeschooler on 2019/08/29 10:44
Sonic 2 has always been my FAVORITE game especially as a little kid. And its finally my chance to get it free on the appstore. BUT theres a problem. I start the game up and go to the menu right? And then I press “Start Game” and it shows me an ad. After the ad, the WHOLE screen turns black for a few seconds and it starts the whole app again. :( ease fix and i will rate 5 stars. I love u sega!!!!! Sonic has and will always be my favorite!!!!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
No exe!(will scare kids)
by NO SONIC.EXE on 2019/08/28 16:23
I was just playing and boom the music turned to the music from hide and seek forme Sonic.Exe! But other then that it's fun

A couple bugs.
by Asomeguy425 on 2019/08/14 19:08
There’s a few minor problems going on with the iPhoneX version of this game, and I’m certain it has to do with the iPhoneX’s bigger screen. Stuff like how you’re still able to see Sonic to the very right of the screen when clearing a zone’s Act 1. Another being that in Chemical Plant, some of the towers in the background seem to appear and disappear from the outer parts of the screen. I’ve also noticed that when the zone’s name comes in before beginning a level, it stays in place for just a second before sliding in and back out like normal. This is one of the best ports of Sonic 2, and I’d love to see these minor bugs finally fixed. Thank you :)
I get ads even though I paid
by Agent Donut on 2019/08/14 03:47
I bought this game back when it still costed a few dollars, but when it was made free my app updated and I started getting ads. I tried to confirm my purchase through the app but it won’t register? I feel like it should still cost money since no one that plays it likes the ads lol
Bugs
by madiscord on 2019/08/11 17:00
I Like the Game, but Ads Are Loading hands-free stuff And That is Bothering.
To much ads

Too many ads
by jxndjdncnjfjsmdnv on 2019/08/05 23:20
This game has too many ads every time i pause or go to my home screen or check the Notification Center there is an ad
I love this!
by unicorn awesome🦄 on 2019/08/05 16:30
I love how you can play as tails and knuckles and debug mode and please make sonic 3 and knuckles!

About Average
by ImaLuigi1 on 2019/08/02 13:46
I have this game on the original SEGA Genesis and it’s really great. But, the mobile platform doesn’t stack up well to the original Genesis. This is completely ridiculous considering that mobile has so much more power than the Genesis. Anyway, here are three reasons why Sonic 2 on mobile is marginal. 1. Micro-Transactions - Your better off purchasing an original Genesis and a Sonic 2 cartridge than spending money on ALL the micro-transactions. 2. Ads - I know this a pretty common complaint, but seriously after almost every level, there would be an ad waiting for me. 3. Controls - This is probably the worst problem of all, but the controls are just so wonky. It took me a few minutes just to exit an area of the stage. Now, I know some of you are probably saying that I’m just a crappy player. But, no, download this app and prove yourself wrong. Now, I’m a Nintendo guy for life but this game made me want to say something. This game really isn’t that bad, it just has some faults that I thought needed sharing. Thanks for reading!
Ad glitch.... plz help
by owl1886395 on 2019/08/01 22:05
I love the game, but when I try to play, I get thrown into an ad. After I exit out of mentioned ad, the entire app restarts. Hopefully you update this game so this issue is resolved.
Problems
by sonic fan 111111 on 2019/07/30 03:34
This game is way too hard to the graphics to their game play But it’s good. Specially chemical plant
ITS AS GOOD AS THE 1st ONE!!!!
by POTATOOOOOOooooooo0oo on 2019/07/29 20:23
If your a sonic fan GET THIS APP!!!!! It’s super awesome and adventurous and I did just download it the day I posted this but STILL!!! I am stuck on the Eggman casino battle and OHMYGOSHHHHHH it’s very very VERY hard but I think I just need to practice and I’ll get it, and idk why but it crashed when I tried to use it the first time then it worked, so I guess it just glitched that one time, and it does unfortunately have quite the adds, but I say ITS WORTH IT!!!!
Sound has stopped working
by Tonysifin on 2019/07/27 17:18
Having so much fun with the game but for some reason the sound has stopped working within the game. The app loads and makes noises and music just fine but as soon as the game actually starts, the sound cuts out. Please fix
Hey this game is good people
by The SammyClassicSonicFan on 2019/07/26 18:59
I had fun playing this, there is a lot of ads but I don’t care, it’s still sonic 2 for free. Stop complaining this game is a classic and is one of the best sonic games.
Is there super sonic
by hxjfjdhcjdhvjsbvywk on 2019/07/25 17:52
I wish there was super sonic please add it to the game it be amazing to have that if you add that boss battles would be easier like the death egg boss fight
Still no restore purchases button
by liquidtenmillion on 2019/07/19 02:24
I still can’t restore the app that I paid for. The button is completely missing. It used to be in the settings menu, now there is just a blank spot there. It has been this way for a few years now.
Fix the Online
by ~ Sweatpea 62 ~ on 2019/07/16 18:31
Please fix the online multiplayer. At times it will never load
I love sonic 2!
by Dudcfkhfsxkkf on 2019/07/16 00:08
This app is great and I’m happy it has debug and level select! I’ve loved these games for a long time and I am happy to see them on the App Store! I really hope they release sonic 3.
Good game but something with the ad?
by Mariofan 2011 on 2019/07/15 15:53
Something wrong about the exit ad I can’t exit the ad and I can’t resume my game so fix this pleaseeeee
Adverts
by CoolCupHead22 on 2019/07/15 13:38
Yeah so I love this game because I love sonic but the only thing is ads they make the game take FOREVER to get to play but otherwise the game is just sonic and it’s really fun!
Amy Rose & Cream should be added + 5th and 6th saver
by Djgreunke on 2019/07/14 18:45
Why Amy Rose and cream Should be added? Well, because Amy Rose and Cream will be playable characters, even beat dr. Eggman. Why we need a saver 5 & 6? Well,because we need 2 more characters in the game!!!
Amazing
by Jevix1029 on 2019/07/13 16:15
Just like the sonic colors announcer said good great awesome outstanding amazing
Will keep one star until...

You remove the ads from your own games on it.
So many ads and horribly frustrating
by jqwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm on 2019/07/07 12:23
I keep getting bombarded with ads every time I do dang near anything. One time I accidentally paused and was thrown into a ad hell where it completely bombarded me with a quadruple zillion ads and I couldn’t escape. But it doesn’t stop there. The controls are absolute garbage and the monkey in emerald hill can fall in a hole. It’s literally impossible to get past without getting hit. I seriously think this game should be better and I hope you fix the ads and the controls.
Thank you SEGA
by Go gamemer on 2019/07/05 22:46
This game brings me back to the old days and I love how the characters are free
I LOVE SEGA!!!!!!🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩😅😅😂😂🤣🤣 ice bird fan 146
by Sugar mama of 3 on 2019/06/28 09:01
Wow! This game is so cool that I hardly think this takes a punch 🥊 from sonic the hedgehog 🦔! And those stupid sanic games are bad! Why? Because those games are bug games! And they have way...too...many......adds! And I love ❤️ all the zones!
Add sonic3 and knuckles and why can’t I turn to super tails?
by gioscoolducks3 (sub to me) on 2019/06/27 17:37
I know sonic 1 2 and cd came out for iOS and android but what I think is missing is sonic3 and knuckles I really enjoyed the games that came out for iOS but I thinks what is really missing is sonic3 and knuckles also I can’t turn to super tails I got all 7 chaos emeralds and I had 50 rings and then I pressed jump 2 times didn’t work it works for sonic and knuckles but not tails please fix that
Gangbanged by ads
by K!ch!ga! on 2019/06/27 13:56
Completely unplayable due to the number of ads that bombard you and end up crashing the game. Also pretty convenient that you need wifi to play the game so that it makes it impossible to avoid. Absolutely useless.
Amazing!
by Cath Drwg on 2019/06/27 01:39
This is exactly how I remember it from the when I was a child! Start the game. Choose your age. 8. Immediately get served an ad with a pickup line. (I said I was 8!) Choose your character, while viewing another ad on the screen at the same time. Play a level. Play ... an ad?! Play an ad with no obvious X icon. Uninstall. The onscreen controls were decent, so that’s something. The game play was accurate, at least. I was spewing rings like the best.
I love this game
by sklawitt2003 on 2019/06/22 18:25
I love this game and it has knuckles.i have one complaint tho. What happened to the end of the 1st level of chemical plant I should climb the wall, get a life and zoom to the end, it's all changed up there now. Why?
Ads make this great game unplayable
by gr4v17y on 2019/06/22 17:31
You may as well not even make the game free. Just have it up for a price. This free version with ads is nearly unplayable, as so many ads keep coming and coming. Sometimes you’ll sit through the 30 second ad only to have the same one start right back up again. It won’t even let me play the game because of an endless loop of the same ads over and over resulting in a black screen. Don’t even bother offering this game for free, just have it for sale. The ads render your product nearly unplayable, and this is unfortunate because it is a very well made mobile port, very smooth with tight controls. I would have rather just seen the game on the App Store for its price, rather than download this atrocious ad-riddled version that cannot even be enjoyed.
Awesome game
by Caramelo🌙🍭 on 2019/06/18 16:43
This game was challenging which I love as well as the contribution to the retro style sonic use to have which is a plus. Overall amazing game. I would definitely enjoy a new retro sonic app to play on my spare time. By the way this works on my iPhone XR
You Better read this!

FIX SCRAP BRAIN ZONE ACT 2 BUG/GLITCH!!!!!!!
by sonicthechilidog on 2019/06/14 21:24
Rest of game really good. I got all the emeralds and when I got to scrap brain act 2 and finish it, the cutscene for act three makes the camera move up and causes sonic to die meaning I’m in an infinite loop where I can only play the game until act 2 of scrap brain
Too many ads
by The extremely stupid doritard on 2019/06/13 01:05
Seriously, the original was fine with ads, but this is just horrible. Not only are you unable to skip ads after 5 seconds, but you may get 2 ads at a time. This needs to get fixed now.
Why JUST WHY>:C
by hgtfhhdehubgt on 2019/06/12 03:12
WHY SO MANY ADDS JUST WHYYY >:C Even if you try to go back to something that you did before and sometimes IT DOSENT LET YOU F***ING GO BACK >:C!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!MAKE THIS BETTER OR IM GANNA REPORT THIS FRICKING GAME >=C

by orange orange orang on 2019/06/12 02:19
I love this game It is great beacause I only have sonic mania on my Nintendo switch and I couldn’t beat the boss in stardust speedway speaking of difficulty cemacal plant zone is too hard (due to the disappearing platforms).I hope I can beat It and I hope Sega sees this review.thank you Sega.

2 stars down, game can be raged at
by Hoefec on 2019/05/26 03:14
I’ve been raging on the 2ND LEVEL-Chemical Plant. Not the water part, but at the boss ending. The PLATES that flip always kill me. I’m ready to uninstall this game. I thought I’d get a game easier than Sonic Forces. But, as it turns out, this seems WAY, WAY harder than Sonic Forces. I’m tired of this, but I still want to beat the game in order to feel very happy about it. I don’t have much more to say since I’m stuck. Couldn’t an easier level go before chemical plant? -Gosh. This level is SO easy on Sonic Forces.-Anyway, if I’m still raging, then I should just stop. Mainly so I don’t burn my whole house down. XD but anyway, it’s not the best game I’ve ever played. SEGA, make this game easier for me! I’m bad enough at games. Took me forever to beat Cuphead. Just wow-Sonic is my favorite game series, but if you don’t make it easier I’ll go back to being a Cuphead fan!!!

Fanlly tails is here

Tails was not in sonic 1 or the master system in sonic2 now saga wanted to put tails so we could find secart areas and so we could fly
Gotta Go Fast
by PacManBoi on 2019/05/23 00:16
I do think that this is truly the game that made Sonic the icon he is today. I mean, come on! This is the game that first had the Spin Dash! And Tails! And even an early Metal Sonic! It’s got it all, and adding Knuckles and Hidden Palace was a nice touch. Please remaster Sonic 3 and Knuckles! Also, I don’t know how it would work but Sonic Mania Mobile would be incredible too!
CONTAINS CHEAT CODES 😀
by X-da man!oooohhhh yeah! on 2019/05/22 00:44
I think this app is absolutely great. But the chaos emeralds are really hard to get. Which is not an error. I do like that the cheat codes have not been removed. The debug one does work, but you can’t use it because of the lack of buttons. The one you can actually use is the Super Sonic one. (In no save mode only) When the game starts, after sonic runs around, hit the letters in this order: S-E-G-A (you will hear a ring sound). When the character(s) show up and the text at the bottom shows up, swipe up from the bottom of the screen with two fingers. The level select will show up. Go down to the sound test and play these sound tests in this order: 4-1-2-6. You will hear the sound of Sonic getting a chaos emerald. Proceed to play a level. In the level collect 50 rings, then jump, while in the air, hit the jump button again, and you will become Super Sonic, you have to constantly collect rings to stay super.
This is a waste of time; I don’t recommend this game!
by pls mke dsk prt easer on 2019/05/22 00:16
It’s impossible to beat the Death Egg Robot. The boss is a waste of time altogether. SEGA, Sonic Team, this (in my opinion) is one of your biggest failures. DON’T DOWNLOAD IT!!! (Oh, by the way, this game has too many ads... WAY TOO MANY ADS!)
Best game ever

Not free, full of ads.
by cole9k on 2019/05/19 21:04
Once you download and start it then asks you to pay 1.99. Could have just shown the price before download. Plus, some ads are interactive, cant exit til you “finish”. Another example of a bad marketing.

by InfinityNumi on 2019/05/15 00:52
so i made this review to tell that it is a great game, but now they put advertisements and make you pay for an ad free experience, and the ads are everywhere and quite annoying. So what i digger is that to lower the amount of ads that they play and make the game more not as ad filled.
LOVE GAME!!!!!!!!❤️❤️. ONE GLITCH THAT MAKES ME MAD 😡 (but still love game ❤️)
by eden destroyer on 2019/05/14 23:41
This is the best game. Just one glitch that I should point out. When I battle mecha sonic. every time I get a few hits and then when I try to hit him again I die. and its not even the time when he spinballs and you can't hit him. PLEASE FIX THIS GLITCH!!!!!!!!! I still love this game ❤️❤️. 💙💙💙 GO SONIC!!!!!!!💙💙💙please fix this glitch I really want to beat death egg 😃😃please

1 and 2 are great, but where is 3?
by HyperSonicTheHedgehog on 2019/05/02 16:02
usually, i love a good sonic game! 1 and 2 on iphone have been so fun lately, but u guys should make a 3. where it has sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles (which is part 2 of sonic three) where u can use debug mode, and get the chaos and super emeralds to turn into super sonic, hyper sonic, super knuckles, hyper knuckles, and super tails. so that's pretty much it. P.S i love all ur sonic games i just got Mania Plus and Forces on xbox one
So basically sega no ads for a month
by bunch165 on 2019/05/01 13:23
So basically give every body no ads for a month or two on both sonic one and sonic two and if you don’t I’ll leave a bad review on every game you made :)
Great but hard

I like that you can turn super sonic,be tails and knuckles,and even a secret zone.its cool but the special stage is hard and the death egg to with 2 bosses and no rings so sega,for the death egg,just put at least 1 ring
Hidden Palace Zone music incorrect
by Majestic Manny on 2019/04/28 20:19
The game is good however, everyone knows that the real song for the HPZ is song # 10 on Sonic 2 sound test menu. This is very evident after testing Sonic 2 (OG) Genesis with a game genie code that clearly shows Hidden Palace Zone intro screen with song #10 music. Why did the people doing the remake chose to ignore that fact???
This is great!
by thedragonthatsender on 2019/04/27 21:08
This was a great port, but I’m still waiting for that s3&k port!
Plz do sonic 3 and Knux for mobile! P.s amazing game!
by coooolsmg4 on 2019/04/25 01:41
PLZ do sonic 3 and knux for mobile PLZ I really don’t want SEGA to turn this genius sonic 3 and knuckles idea for mobile down. Though, sonic 2 for mobile is great! I have both sonic 1 and 2 for mobile and beat them and think they’re both really cool but want to see sonic 3 and knuckles for mobile. I also bet lots of other fans think you should make sonic 3 and knux for mobile because it’s a great game! Not just because we want you to release it, but it’s an awesome game and would really have an entire different effect on sonic fans if you released sonic 3 and knuckles for mobile. Please don’t turn this idea down! Thank you!
Great

Great Port, Suffers from Controls
by zelos33333 on 2019/04/21 18:35
This is honestly an amazing port for anyone who wants to play this game on their phone, and has some awesome additional content that demonstrates Christian Whitehead’s knowledge of past Sonic game development. The touch screen controls seem to throw out a lot of the self control a player has when actually having buttons and a dpad or joystick to guide them through, and become particularly frustrating toward the end of the game when pitfalls become more common. While it suffers from these controls, this port is otherwise fantastic.
Pretty good but
by supr sanic 45 on 2019/04/21 14:04
It needs work on the controls also when I’m trying to get tails to fly he just goes away
Freaking awesome 💯💯💯
by TJExclusive on 2019/04/20 18:31
This game is amazing though the ads bug me but it's worth waiting. Great music, great port, great backgrounds, EVERYTHING IS GREAT. This is a true Sonic game. Oh and by the way when is Sonic Mania mobile coming out. Really excited for it. Also the new Sonic movie better be good because I have high hopes for it. Don't fail me now SEGA and does reading this, this a game worth getting
Decent
by Drummnj on 2019/04/20 13:47
It’s good but it’s tails on the Special stages mostly he’s messing you up
Love the game but is glitchy
by rwallen3 on 2019/04/18 16:40
One thing I’ve noticed while playing is that the jump button is really unresponsive at times and sometimes downright doesn’t even work. It’s annoying once you reach the death egg and you have to fight silver sonic and death egg robo
Best Game ever or one of

Glitch, please help
by RandomGirl16 on 2017/11/20 06:09
Hey! Best app I’ve spent money on (Also the only app I’ve spent money on so far tbh, lol). Having lots of fun, way easier now than it was when I was 3 or 4 and playing on my Sega genesis (though still challenging!). That said, I’m leaving 4 stars instead of 5 because I can’t find a place on the app or your website that addresses the issue I’m currently having. I reached the death egg zone, both as knuckles and as sonic+tails (well, at that point in the game it’s really just sonic but I digress). I was playing and dying (lol) as sonic, and I thought that it would be easier as knuckles since he can grab walls, so I beat the winged fortress zone that I was on and began the death egg zone as knuckles. I ended up dying again anyway because it’s still difficult (especially when the spikes explode out lol), but once I died, when I went back to my save files, both files showed as sonic+tails save files. I tested, and indeed, I’m sonic on both of them now. I’m not sure how this glitch happened or how to get my save file where I was knuckles on the death egg back. Would appreciate help, idk what to do beyond closing and restarting app and turning the phone off and back on. Will delete this description and make this review five stars if you can fix that or if the app somehow fixes its own error.
Sega Forever is Denuvo for iOS
by Kyudan 62 on 2017/11/29 05:26
The classic Sonic series was probably one of the first sets of games I've played, and they're probably why I love retro games. The Christian Whitehead ports for iOS are wonderful, and I'm glad to have the old Sonic games on my iPad. I hate it, however, when Sega adds unnecessary garbage like Sega Forever to their games. The mobile port of Sonic 2 was just as great as the original with controls if not better. Since that Sega Forever update, the controls just broke. The d-pad would have a delay of 1-5 seconds before either changing directions or resetting when I let go. The jump button no longer works half of the time, forcing me to die over and over. Even the momentum came off as a bit broken. This makes the whole game nearly unplayable. Nobody likes losing control in a game, and neither do I. The ad issue was moot to me because I paid three dollars before the garbage Sega Forever update. This is why you don't let Sega mess with Classic Sonic. I'm not willing to buy another one of your ports or games unless I know for a FACT that someone more responsible is behind the controls. Get rid of the update! Go back to when it was run by Chris Whitehead. Only then will I put 5 stars, you money-hungry, thick headed, fools.
Just what the world needs.
by MantheMan5 on 2016/04/27 00:03
One year after the world saw the birth of an international icon, the fastest thing alive is back at it again with a new round of ways to end the plot of Dr. Robotnik. Sonic finally encounters one who has super speed just like him, but much more smarts and much less wits than Sonic. Sonic and Tails subsequently become the best known alliance in fiction that possibly is more popular than Mario and Luigi. Let me get my biggest point out of the way. Casino Night Zone? That is a way to treat and get rid of a gambling addiction. It is one of my favorite zones in the existence of Sonic the Hedgehog. Only in this port is the zone improved. Also, Sega is quite cunning to have Knuckles as an available character, deeming it impossible to beat Robotnik in space due to the shortened height of Knuckles' jumps. In reality, it is easy to beat Robotnik as Knuckles. Quite a tricky move by Sega there. This game is just the start of a brand new day for the blue blue. The day has yet to end. There is nothing that needs tone brought to the attention of Sega about this app besides the fact everyone did a phenomenal job making this port. Sonic the Hedgehog 1 was cool, but Sonic the Hedgehog 2 leaves fire in its footsteps. Play the game!
A classic re-imagined, but one minor flaw
by The reviewer person thing on 2017/11/23 22:39
There’s not much really to say, it’s sonic 2 with better sprites and visuals, I love it! But..there is one thing I must address, and that is: THE ADS. These things are everywhere, from when you enter a special stage, when you boot up the game, and EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU RESUME THE GAME AFTER PAUSING, THERES AN AD! But I get it, this is a free port and I can pay to have them removed, but, since I don’t have that money, I’m forced to watch 20 seconds of horrible gameplay. That’s not even the worst of it, there is this weird glitch that happens when you start up the game and go to your save files, the game acts like it’s going to give you an ad, but the screen just goes black, and it stays like that until you exit and restart the app, it also happens when I pause and resume the game, so if I grab 3 Chaos emeralds in a stage and pause my game, I’m basically gambling my emeralds. I do not hate this game, and I get why they have to put ads in there, but if you could fix that black screen of death, that would be great! 4.8/5.0
WAY too many ads.
by Tatetanic on 2018/05/26 03:10
Normally I’m okay with ads... when they come after a level or at a stopping/intermission point, like in the original game. But when they come in the middle of GAMEPLAY? That’s ridiculous! Sometimes they even come back-to-back, and once I even got an ad ON TOP OF AN AD! (Yes, i know you can buy the ad-free version, but you shouldn’t have to BUY smooth gameplay!) As an example, during a special stage (in Emerald Hill) I got FIVE ADS right next to each other. FIVE! The gameplay itself is excellent, which is why it’s rated three stars by me, but the ads are the main problem. Please fix this; I would say maybe after each act, but definitely not in the middle of playing the game. As an added request, make the game offline-playable, and I would definitely rate it five stars. Edit: I LITERALLY CAN’T PLAY THE GAME. The thing is, when you get an ad that opens into an internet tab, it pauses the game. When you unpause, it gives you a video ad. Then a new tab ad opens in the middle of the video ad and pauses the game, you unpause, a video ad plays, then a new tab opens in the video ad, etc. The game is unplayable, unless your idea of playing is advancing two frames in between constantly playing ads, and for that, I’m wishing there was a zero-star option.
An ad glitch?
by Anon in Cyan on 2017/12/01 11:02
This is seriously an amazing port of the Sonic 2 game. So good that I will buy the ad free version once I'm allowed to (yeah pretty lame of me to admit). However, in the meantime, there's a bug (or something?) that's bothering me a bit... I don't know if I'm just uninformed about these types of things but whenever some ads play the sound goes out for the whole game?? That's not all, sometimes after the ad plays the screen just goes black (or on worst occasions, an ad is supposed to pop up and it just appears black). Of course I could just restart the app, however, with the frequency of these ads showing, I never know when the glitches (?) are about to occur. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the ads when I know I'm playing such a good game for free. However, I do mind when they actually affect my gameplay experience this greatly. Then again I almost never invest so much time in an app so I'm new to this kind of thing I guess. I don't know but I just thought I'd drop this by.
CONTAINS CHEAT CODES 😀
by X-da man!oooohhhh yeah! on 2019/05/22 00:44
I think this app is absolutely great. But the chaos emeralds are really hard to get. Which is not an error. I do like that the cheat codes have not been removed. The debug one does work, but you can’t use it because of the lack of buttons. The one you can actually use is the Super Sonic one. (In no save mode only) When the game starts, after sonic runs around, hit the letters in this order: S-E-G-A (you will hear a ring sound). When the character(s) show up and the text at the bottom shows up, swipe up from the bottom of the screen with two fingers. The level select will show up. Go down to the sound test and play these sound tests in this order: 4-1-2-6. You will hear the sound of Sonic getting a chaos emerald. Proceed to play a level. In the level collect 50 rings, then jump, while in the air, hit the jump button again, and you will become Super Sonic, you have to constantly collect rings to stay super.
Good remake, bad ad placement
by Bobobzilla on 2018/02/09 00:21
I am a lucky user who has had Sonic 2 and 1 purchased even when the games were emulated. Then, something amazing happened in 2013. These great games were remade, filled to the brim with features! However, the Sonic 1, 2, and CD remakes took a dark turn in the form of “SEGA Forever.” There are three types of ads in Sonic 2. One when you click on “PLAY GAME,” one between Acts, and one when you...resume the game. SEGA, if you wanna have ads, maybe you can add a mode where the game screen is shrunk a little, but it leaves room for ad banners. And I mean those short rectangular ads. Personally, I’m fine with my Sonic Mega Collection and Sonic Gems Collection discs. And the thing I’m MOST bothered about, I couldn’t restore my precious Sonic 1 purchase. On a side note, SEGA is kinda lying to us. When you “restore the purchase” on Sonic CD (which I didn’t do), there’s still a little Sonic Forces ad in the menu. Just buy a GameCube, PS3, or XBOX 360, guys...I guess this review wasn’t COMPLETELY accurate to my opinion, but hey, you gotta say something! (Note: pls fix mania debug it shouldn’t be this limiting i want more tails/knuckles abuse options)
BEST SONIC GAME (but with adds)
by Tat one boi on 2018/08/19 21:32
I love the classic sonic series and this game HAS to be my favorite, I still remover when I was young I played this game on the Xbox 360 me and my brother had, I loved being Tails and I liked the fact that there was even a 2 player mode (BTW can we get some of that good 2 player in this app) But here is the catch, when I bought this it was LITTERED with adds, I was thinking “I PAID FOR A GAME WITH ADDS AND I NEED TO SPEND MORE MONEY TO GET RID OF THEM!!!!!” Yeah I thought I was scammed, so I still played the game and then when I was about to defeat the final boss and I had no rings and 1 life left,6 ADDS IN A ROW BABY, THEN IT SENT ME TO AN INTERNET TAB, THAT PAUSED MY GAME AND WHEN I COULD FINALLY PLAY AGAIN, BOOM I DIED so yeah Sega please lower the price of removing adds please to make the experience for the player better for the player, we don’t want another Electronic Arts that litters the game with micro transactions and paying to rid of things that shouldn’t be in the game in the first place, Thank You.
Just spend the two bucks
by shadowgoo33 on 2018/05/11 20:24
I recommend using the free version as a demo to try it and see if you like it first. The ads are pretty insufferable in the free version, since they pop up between every stage and even when you unpause the game. That said, two bucks to have one of the genesis’s flagship platformers on the go is a pretty solid deal. Sonic 2 actually works really well as a mobile game since the controls are super simple and the health system is really forgiving, so the loss of precision from using a touch screen compared to using a controller doesn’t matter too much (at least until the final bosses, but they’re still doable). Also, they added a save system, so the really tough endgame stages aren’t as big of a stumbling block as they are in the original version.
Very Impressed👍
by Durpy bit on 2018/06/07 21:37
(Game backstory) was Join Sonic and Miles “Tails” Prower as they venture through a vast wide place known as “West side island.” This place ranges from beautiful hills to underground caves to a new zone, Hidden palace zone! This was scrapped in the original, Sonic the hedgehog 2, from 1992. But there is a problem for Sonic and Miles. Dr. Robotnik is back at it again, trying to collect all 7 “sol” emeralds, to power his ultimate creation, the death egg! Help Sonic and “Tails” to collect the emeralds back and take down Dr. Robotnik and the death egg, to save the day! (My own review) I promised you a glowing, five star review if you fixed the touch controls. (I’m sorry I’m so late, lol.) One question I do have is, in the latest update, the VS mode was removed, and replaced with the “Segazine”. Can you please get it back? I miss it! Thank you anyways, and I hope you have an awesome day! Keep up the good work!
Great Game but where is 3?
by GreatBobcat on 2017/02/20 15:56
I love this game, sonic 2 has been my 2 favorite game for a long time. I am now re downloading this game years after its release and its still great, but I still see you haven't made sonic 3 & knuckles yet. Sonic 3 & knuckles is my favorite game ever, and I knew at the time of this games release it may take a while to make the third game but, I'm now coming back 2-3 years later and see no progress. I would love to have my favorite on mobile,But still I look on the App Store only seeing sonic 1, 2, CD, and 4 episode 1 and 2. Why not make sonic 3? I still want to give this game full credit but I would have expected some progress on sonic 3 & knuckles so I'm taking off a star, but anyways this is still a very good game and I'm very happy I can play one of the best classic sonic games on mobile.
Absolute Greatness!
by Someoneelsexgseh on 2016/06/25 20:39
Sonic 2 is considered by many to be the best Sonic game. Christian Whitehead's remake here is a thing of beauty! Having the same graphics, but making them more silky smooth (Play the Bonus Stages in the original or a port of the original then the ones in this remake and you'll see what I mean!) as well as adding a plethora of new features! My favorite is the addition of my favorite lost Sonic Zone, Hidden Palace! I've always wanted an official level of it, because it is gorgeous, and the one provided is everything I could have wanted in the stage! The controls are a bit off, (not enough to make the game less enjoyable, though) I suppose, though, I am playing on a Smart Phone, so it would be expected... I can only hope Whitehead gets to my favorite in the series, Sonic 3... Maybe someday...
Gotta go write a review. Get it... #memes
by Matt Matty Matthew on 2018/04/27 14:44
Special stages as we know are hard, but sonic 2 is the bane of our lives for one reason alone. No frames that you're invincible, so you can hit over and over again and lose all your rings. Also I'm pretty sure that the game gets unreasonable harder when you reach oil ocean zone. Let's have blue super sonic in reverse. so all you gotta do is max the ring count in debug mode and then destroy a bunch of life 📦. Sega please don't patch this it's not a big deal. Also this glitch is in sonic 1. iOS. Sega please show this letter to Christian Whitehead. Dear CW Remember 2 years ago how you showed us your beta sonic 3 and knuckles port, but the project down for some reason. Well I think you can make S3&K IOS! Your fans of Sonic Retro can, I think you can... SO YOU CAN!!!! So get to it. From Matthew Wong Breaking News. Special stage 8 was found in this game yesterday. I found out that in the level selection if you press 7 then 8 you will go there. If your like me you like to spin dash off screen after you hit the goal post. Well for some reason in Hilltop Zone act 1 of you spindash off screen Sonic will get stuck as there is a slope which has a sonic one like design.
Great Game, Shameless advertising
by Sonic DX 123 on 2017/11/29 22:48
I want to start off by saying I am a huge sonic fan. Sonic 2 is a wonderful game and this is probably the best version of it. However the adds are terrible. SEGA has done this to sonic 1 and CD as well, but this is the one game I played the most out of those 3. I payed for this game back before it was free. Even though I’ve “restored my purchase” the game still runs worse than it did before the free to play update, and it goes back to showing me adds after a few hours of play. I still think this game is fantastic and playable with adds, but SEGA needs to stop trying to milk their old mobile games, especially when many users already payed full price for the game. At the very least, SEGA needs to fix the restore purchases problem on all the sonic apps they have made free to play. Lastly, I know it has been said before, but we need Sonic 3&K to get a mobile port.
Too... Many... ads!
by Derpman123 on 2018/05/29 02:15
The newest update has added so many adds that I can barely play the game anymore. This game was so much fun as a kid on the genesis, but the game has way way way too many ads! Whenever I try to open up the games saves, it just shows an ad. This problem happens every time I also go to a different act, or different zone. Imagine inbetween each level in super mario bros. You had to pause for the game to load the new stage for 5 seconds. Every time, a commercial plays. Now play until 8-4. See why I’m so annoyed? This game has the generic problem of many games on the AppStore that are just basic cash grabs. So many ads the game is unplayable. F you SEGA. Nintendo does what SEGA can’t. Produce a product on phones that doesn’t do ads. That’s saying something. Update: the stupid ads can’t be fixed by turning off the WiFi or turning on airplane mode. It pops up with messages telling me to get to internet. Sadly that means I can’t play it while I’m off on a trip with no WiFi.
Amazing!!
by MarioLuigi444 on 2019/01/15 00:16
I absolutely love this game!! A retro classic like this on my iPhone just feels amazing, even if I have no Bluetooth controllers on hand. I’m already at Death Egg Zone with Tails and Knuckles. Love the iMessage stickers as a bonus and the 2P V.S. Mode. The Hidden Palace is a nice touch (it IS new, right?) What would be cool is if you made a 2P Co-op for the game as Sonic and Tails. It would be easier for Sonic to grab Tails when flying. Also when the Sonic Mania Plus phase is over, add Mighty and Ray, to both Sonic and Sonic 2, maybe as an in app purchase. The Ads are pretty annoying, but not annoying enough for me to stop. Love this game a lot and would be hyped to see Sonic 3 & Knuckles! (I mean in Sonic 4 ep 1 it continues from 3&K so why not?) Looking forward to getting enough storage for 1, CD, 4 ep 1, and 4 ep 2.
This Game is a Bit Better Than The Original, But...
by Jonah Farley on 2018/02/06 13:43
So, I just wanna say that this port of Sonic 2 is great, and I’m proud of Sonic Team for hiring good game designers! But there is one question...will there also be a Sonic 3 & Knuckles port for mobile? I mean, we got the first two original Sonic games ported to the App Store, but why hasn’t Sonic 3 & Knuckles been ported as well? It’s probably one of the best Sonic games in the series, so it deserves to have a mobile version! I’m sorry if I sound like I’m just being a whiny brat, but c’mon Sonic Team! Give the fans what they want! The next official Sonic game release can wait. I don’t wanna be rude, I’m just stating my opinion. So please, do us all a favor and make a mobile version of Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Please?
Sega Forever Ruined my Game....
by ActionBoy774 on 2017/12/06 21:21
Old review: Listen, I’m not hating on this game. I can honestly say that this is one of the best ports I’ve ever seen or played. Unfortunately , the sega forever update had ruined that for me. The biggest issue I have right now? The jumping. With the new update, the jump button is very unresponsive. I don’t know why, It just is. The jump button is a key component in the sonic games. And without this function working as accurately as they need to be, it makes the game practically unplayable... Please, do what you can sega. We deserve better then this load of trash!!! Update: THANK YOU SEGA!!! You finally answered our complaints!!! The jump is fixed!! The original port is back!!! Thank you sega! As promised, here are your 5 stars!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This Update Was...
by qandr on 2018/06/06 15:50
...not exactly that god. Keep in mind that this review is of the latest update, not the game. Though, this game is my favorite Sonic game alongside Sonic Mania. Anyway, I don’t really like that you removed the 2-Player VS. mode. I had a lot of fun with it. Also, I’m not really interested in getting your Segazine. Though, the good part about this update is the update description: “Tails has had a look under the hood and made the game 42.4 percent better!” I love it because it involves my favorite Sonic character (Tails) doing what he loves: working on machines! Also, I heard Eggman’s plan in Sonic 1 to bug the game has failed. HA!!! I hope you add back 2-Player VS. mode, and I hope Sonic Mania Plus goes well! -SuperRyanGaming (My Game Center Account)
A couple bugs.
by Asomeguy425 on 2019/08/14 19:08
There’s a few minor problems going on with the iPhoneX version of this game, and I’m certain it has to do with the iPhoneX’s bigger screen. Stuff like how you’re still able to see Sonic to the very right of the screen when clearing a zone’s Act 1. Another being that in Chemical Plant, some of the towers in the background seem to appear and disappear from the outer parts of the screen. I’ve also noticed that when the zone’s name comes in before beginning a level, it stays in place for just a second before sliding in and back out like normal. This is one of the best ports of Sonic 2, and I’d love to see these minor bugs finally fixed. Thank you :)
Restore purchase not working
by georgedonnelly on 2018/09/04 19:12
Bought this game way before the whole sega classic ad update, and it's rather frustrating that I bought this game, and, alas, the restore purchase function is broken. This has been a problem for a long time now, and I even contacted support, and still nothing. I have to wonder if Sega is trying to cash into money from people who bought the game. That being said, this is a decently good game. Sonic Two on its own has quite a few design problems, such as the enemy placement, the final boss, no saves, and straight up unfair deaths. Thankfully, this remake introduces saves, making everything else less horrible. This game makes up for it by having tons of interesting places and Zones, something I think Sonic One was missing, though Sonic One is still technically better designed, I kinda prefer this game, though in a way I also prefer the first. Both of these games (CD, too) pale pretty badly to Mania, though. The reason for the scoring: The whole ad problems. I am not going to deal with ads for a game I already paid for, until some date (knowing companies, probably a year or so) to have what I paid for again. I'd rate this game four stars without the whole ad problems. (Ya fixed it for Sonic One. Consider doing it for two?)
You get two stars this time Sega
by Nickuza on 2017/11/25 22:29
I have played all the games in the sega forever line of mobile games. This game is the first game to not have lag issues. The previous entires in the sega forever line would have lag when the sound was off, turn the sound on and the lag doubles. The other issue with these games is the amount of ads. Holy smokes there are so many ads. In between stages, pausing the games, going back to the home screen to take a call or answer a text message. It’s seems like there is an ad every corner you turn and it takes me out of the game. I would rather get my Atgames sega hand held and play my classics on there. Sure the sound quality is not as good as on here but I would rather have that opposed to the ads and the lag and the poor touch screen controls. I will be uninstalling this game as soon as I submit this review.
Plz do sonic 3 and Knux for mobile! P.s amazing game!
by coooolsmg4 on 2019/04/25 01:41

Try GameVice
by pablo_gri on 2018/07/08 04:34
Wow I just checked and last time I left a review for this game was 7 years ago!! Anyways back to the point, everyone who still plays this game and hates touch screen controls, please at least try this. Controller that clamps to your iOS device and fits all phones from iPhone 6-iPhone X’s. It’s called “Gamevice” total new experience on classic arcade game and newer supported games. Doesn’t use Bluetooth but connects directly to lightning port so lag is minimized. I am by no means an advertiser but just felt everyone who games on mobile devices should give it a try, works on many other games and has the button feel similar to Xbox or ps4 button layouts. Hopefully the more support this controller gets, the more developers will support it also, like fortnite for example. And it’s also available from the Apple website so you know if they approve it then it is surely compatible. I am currently using my controller for Minecraft, Real Racing 3, Sonic 2 only (sonic 1 and Sonic CD are still severely bugged on iPhone X), GTA ps2 ports, and final fantasy ps1 ports for iOS.
PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!
by gamigamer on 2017/12/01 05:53
Dear Sega and to all that read this: Beware the black screen of doom!!!! I got this game because I had played Sonic CD and that was fun but starting to get boring because I already beat the game multiple times and my father got this game on his Apple TV and I played it and it was super fun. Then I got the app, entered my age and then watched the cool intro and went past an add for Sonic Forces (I didn’t really care about it because I already had the game)and was at the home screen. I clicked play BUT IT DIDN’T WORK!!!!!!! It just went into a blank black screen and just stayed like that. So I rebooted the app but. it. didn’t. work. again. It just did the same thing and I did it again and again and AGAIN! I couldn’t get into the game, I already have noticed that other people have had the same problem so Sega, PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!>:(
One of the greatest platformers ever ruined.
by Guy who left this review on 2017/12/02 02:22
The latest update added a glitch so that holding right on the d-pad and jumping will cause the d-pad to be stuck going right until it is touched again. Please fix this, it has made the game no longer fun to play. Also, I paid for this game and you've stuffed ads into it years later. Even after "restoring purchase" an ad will pop up upon starting the app and it will check and "remove" future ads after I get past the first one. I bought this years ago, I have you money, I've enjoyed it thoroughly, get your ads off of the thing I PAID YOU FOR. This is not a free to play game. You got your money, stop being greedy. Either make it remove ads properly after I've "recovered" my purchase, or make a demo version. I'll continue to tarnish the high rating this classic deserves until you get your grubby ads out of the game. Thank you.
Great game but poor knuckles port
by 2345774 on 2018/04/18 19:08
I downloaded this game and was surprised that it had knuckles in it and that he was already unlocked (unlike the greedy mobile port of the original) I played through the entire game with him just to find out that the death egg robot is near impossible! Knuckles is only able to jump up the the robots arm and almost always hits it no matter how much momentum he has. The only way it would work is if you jumped at the exact middle frame of the robot shooting it’s arm any earlier will hit the arm any later will hit the robot but get crushed by the arm. Can you please fix knuckles so I don’t have to restart the game?
Ads make this great game unplayable
by gr4v17y on 2019/06/22 17:31
You may as well not even make the game free. Just have it up for a price. This free version with ads is nearly unplayable, as so many ads keep coming and coming. Sometimes you’ll sit through the 30 second ad only to have the same one start right back up again. It won’t even let me play the game because of an endless loop of the same ads over and over resulting in a black screen. Don’t even bother offering this game for free, just have it for sale. The ads render your product nearly unplayable, and this is unfortunate because it is a very well made mobile port, very smooth with tight controls. I would have rather just seen the game on the App Store for its price, rather than download this atrocious ad-riddled version that cannot even be enjoyed.
A great port ruined by ads
by 436375353738363738 on 2018/09/01 15:13
I love this game. I played this version when I was like 5. I wanted to get it again, but it is just LITTERED with ads. Almost to the point where it is unplayable. For example, when you are on the file select screen, there will be a pop up ad in the right side of the screen. Sounds fine, except for some reason, the ad won’t be on the right side of the screen. It will take up the entire screen! Why? And there’s more. If you pause the game, you will get an ad, and if you un-pause the game, you’ll get an ad! And the worst part is that this is with every single dang game they release on IOS. Why not just make the game 0.99 and with no ads instead of an unplayable free game. There is a way to remove ads for like 2.00 dollars, but why waste the money. This is just stupid.
MAJOR BUG: PLEASE FIX
by rentstar999 on 2017/12/05 00:08
Prior to the 4.0 update, this used to have quick, tight, and responsive controls just like all of the other iOS Sonic ports. After the update however, the input delay has become SIGNIFICANTLY more noticeable! Sometimes jumping takes almost AN ENTIRE SECOND to register after pushing the button, if you’re lucky to have it even register at all. This happens most commonly when trying to jump while running/walking. Sometimes while going left or right, the buttons even get STUCK! This leads to the gameplay experience being a lot more frustrating FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS. Parts of the game like the Special Stages, the Final Boss (ESPECIALLY as Knuckles, which was already bad without the “update”), and even just platforming in general feel like like you’ve been unfairly handicapped. Christian Whitehead, if you’re reading this, PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS.
Best way to play the game, however Sega ruined it.
by Monster Jam80 on 2017/11/24 04:52
Just to be clear, this is not a review against the game quality or Christian Whitehead. This is the best way to play Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and I wish this and the Sonic 1 port came to PC. Sega did this crappy mobile thing where the Sonic ports of Sonic CD, Sonic 1, and Sonic 2 more recently would be free, with ads. Why would anyone think this was a good idea??? These games were fine as they were, $3. But nooooooo, it had to be like anything else on mobile and have ads. This and the Denuvo thing on Sonic Mania (which by the way still hasn't been removed) are some of Sega's worst decisions as of late. This is a shame too since these are GREAT works by Christian Whitehead, and all other developers of Sonic Mania. Sega, why do you keep making crappy decisions?
Amazing game
by acejgreat (real) on 2017/12/11 17:11
It feels really nice to have the classic games back with more modes and extras than the originals. There are a couple glitches here and there but to find them, you really have to look for them. They aren’t something you’ll find on your first play through. I also like how you can go back into earlier zones once you’ve completed the game and collect the chaos emeralds there. One last thing I really like is how they kept the secret stage select and debug mode as part of the game. I have one question though... when is S3&K going to be available/released for mobile?
Two minor flaws.
by LinksMissing on 2016/12/12 03:10
In one of the metropolis zones there is a section of yellow wall bounce things that do not work so you have to find a different way through. Also there is an achievement to complete time attack mode in less than 45 min. It does not register as complete. You get the notification that you've completed it but when you go to achievement menu it shows you haven't competed it. I have completed all of the achievements including this one but it won't register as complete. I have even gotten my total time attack time down to 43:28 and still it shows incomplete. 😭
Love it!.....but
by silver654 on 2018/03/09 21:36
I love this game, it is just amazing, so far my favorite game. But there is a problem I recently encountered, I had finally beaten the game as sonic and I had all the emeralds. And I loved the unlocked stage select. I decided to play winged fortress and when I beat it I took me do the death egg. I decided I didn't want to play that so I exited the stage. When I went back to the menu It said death egg, not complete, so it had erased me beating the game!!!😡I was furious. Just wanted to let you know. It'll be some time until I beat death egg again because it felt like a one and done when I beat it.
amazing but there’s something that you should know
by Cole Owen Coplin on 2018/01/13 17:41
Sega u disgraceful trash-game developers. I can’t believe that u ripped off the super Saiyan form from dragonball. This is the evidence: seven chaos emeralds. Seven Dragon balls. Super Saiyan sounds pretty close to super sonic. There’s also the ever so important abilities of flight, being able to withstand extreme attacks, being able to breathe in and survive falls from space, and having golden hair. Super Saiyan was first released in a monger in 1991. You’re super sonic form was released as a playable form in Sonic the hedgehog two which was released in 1992. I’m surprised that no one has sued you for this yet.
They Ruined it
by SnowPea888 on 2017/11/23 15:17
First of all, I’m not hating on this game like the other guy said. Heck I bought the game and played it so much that I’ve beat it with Sonic and Tails. (Haven’t been doing it with knuckles much) Ever since Sega Forever update, I had trouble restoring my purchase. Once it did restore, I found out the jump button became VERY unresponsive. This was a huge bother as I was trying out Boss Time Attack, and I used the powered up spin dash a lot to go a lot quicker. Ever since that update, this games been terrible to play because the jump button is what pretty much makes up every attack and movement in the game. Won’t change to 5 stars until the jump button is fixed. I would’ve made the review just 1 Star if it wasn’t for the great level design
Need more sonic games
by SuperSegaSonic on 2019/02/20 22:15
You guys have only added 3 classic sonic games to apple, what the hell! You guys need more classic sonic games. You’d be surprised with how many people still even play the Master System. The number one game I think you guys should add is the secret sonic game (SegaSonic the Hedgehog.) I would buy and play every single version of every sonic game from the 90’s. You guys really need to add more classic sonic games to apple. You’d be surprised with how much more money you’d make. This comment is just to give you guys from Sega some ideas. I hope you do them, and good luck if you do!
I love Sonic 2. But there are bugs
by EGGS AND CHICKEN on 2017/11/24 12:36
Sonic 2 is one of my favorite games of all time, so when it was finally free on the app store I downloaded it immediately. I noticed some things. One, the jump button issue that everyone else has been talking about. Two, sometimes the ad redirects to a website with those fake offers that try to steal information like “you are our 1,000th viewer you win an iPhone” or something along those lines. 3.) sometimes I press start game or press my save file I just get a black screen, no ad or anything and it doesn’t go away. I don’t know why these are happening but I hope these can be fixed because I love Sonic 2 and I want to support SEGA.
The controls don't work correctly
by Branchminer1 on 2017/11/22 14:29
After the most recent update, not only is the character selection screen in a strange position, but also the jump button doesn't work properly. Sonic will only jump one every second while moving, and although the speed will increase when standing still (ironic, isn't it?) he still doesn't jump right after landing back on the ground. The biggest problem, though, is the fact that the spindash doesn't work at all. I've found these bugs within the first few seconds of gameplay, and I hope SEGA fixes it soon, as this is the best version of Sonic 2 in existence.

I have this game on the original SEGA Genesis and it’s really great. But, the mobile platform doesn’t stack up well to the original Genesis. This is completely ridiculous considering that mobile has so much more power than the Genesis. Anyway, here are three reasons why Sonic 2 on mobile is marginal. 1. Micro-Transactions - Your better off purchasing an original Genesis and a Sonic 2 cartridge than spending money on ALL the micro-transactions. 2. Ads - I know this a pretty common complaint, but seriously after almost every level, there would be an ad waiting for me. 3. Controls - This is probably the worst problem of all, but the controls are just so wonky. It took me a few minutes just to exit an area of the stage. Now, I know some of you are probably saying that I’m just a crappy player. But, no, download this app and prove yourself wrong. Now, I’m a Nintendo guy for life but this game made me want to say something. This game really isn’t that bad, it just has some faults that I thought needed sharing. Thanks for reading!
This is horrible
by Never going to play this again on 2017/12/01 00:07
This game use to be the best. But now.... Utter disappointment. I can't jump. When I tried to press restore purchases when I got the game everything disappeared and then it crashed. Now the game is basically unplayable for me. I want a refund. Go f$-@ yourself Sega. B.I.H Sega you will never be missed. Also you @$$€\^\s make sure Christian whitehead gets this letter Dear Christian whitehead I'm am so sorry for Sega not letting you make a sonic 3 and knuckles. They are jerks for that why do you even trust them. They hire you to be part of Sega. And they won't even let you make a sonic 3 and knuckles mobile port. I think you should just quit Sega and make your own company. Just take this note from a 12 year old who had his dreams ruined by Sega the f$@&ers. Hopefully you will get this note. From Peter hughgill
Best Game ever or one of
by wwwwwwesscvuio on 2019/04/16 18:04
I personally think every Sonic game is amazing the only won I want on iOS is Sonic 3 and knuckles but every game by Sega has been made great and thanks to all the workers in service games aka Sega and I’m only 10 I have a Sega Genesis and a iPhone so yay and to every one at Sega you are the heart and soul of Sonic the hedgehog with out you I would have to kill turtles as a plumber thanks to you I play as the classic blue blur and save animals for the evil dr ivor Robotnick I cant wait to see what the future of Sonic holds but it’s in your hands until then gota go fast Ciao -a 10 year old fan
Sonic is back once again !
by Jason12558 on 2017/11/20 18:15
Sonic The Hedgehog is back with a new friend Miles Tails Prower to stop Dr. Robotnik from taking the world with the Death Egg. Just like my Sonic 1 review the remake is awesome Christian Whitehead did it once again for Sonic 2. If there’s one thing I’m glad he fixed is that I can restart the special stages if I mess up and I can actually see what’s ahead in the curves weather it’s bombs or rings that’ll help me collect all the 7 chaos emeralds which i did no problem with. I just hope that there would be a remake of Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles or maybe Sonic Mania.
A great game, but there’s a glitch.
by PopFart95 on 2018/04/01 21:57
So, I was playing through Mystic Cave Zone Act 2 as Tails, and I found my way down into the Hidden Palace Zone (nice little secret level) but when I missed a few Rings at the start, and I went back to get them, I somehow managed to clip through the rock to the left. From there I was stuck, until I went into the Pause menu and restarted. Just letting you know, Sega (Also, I absolutely LOVE Sonic Forces. And Infinite is BY FAR MY FAVORITE CHARACTER EVER!!! That’s because he looks amazing). Sincerely, A Fan/Glitch Hunter
Almost perfect
by Supahsanic on 2016/08/31 01:46
This port adds everything that a classic Sonic fan would want out of Sonic 2, even one of the zones that was scrapped from the original game has been restored just for this. You even unlock a certain red character to play as if you're able to overcome the hellish challenge known as the Death Egg Robot. The only thing I find that's holding this port back is it's touch controls. Platformers don't do well with touch control as you need some sort of tactile feedback to really conquer the controls, but I guess it can't be helped. As a crazy classic fanboy, I give this a 9.7/10
Very good
by x90gcz on 2018/12/11 15:36
This is very well made. The touch control actually works and is very responsive. The extra features are nice. The game runs better than expected. It is very good. Two things I wish could be done though are adding the homing attack in as a feature you can enable or disable as this game is absolutely amazing with it (there is a hack made like this although it isn’t as smooth to control), and I also would like to see a remastered sonic the hedgehog 3. Overall though no major complaints to the game.
To many advertisements Broke the game.
by Gio Kar on 2018/12/23 01:58
I was getting so many advertisements, that after the first battle with Dr. Robotnik, the game glitched and forced everything to be on the bottom of the screen and the top half of the screen was black. I couldn’t see what I was doing in the stage because everything was so flattened and distorted bottom half of the screen. It just goes to show that instead of trying to fix the game by spending some money, you as a company would rather insert an advertisement after every selection you make on the menu screens and have the game break and screw up for users and customers of your product. That’s very hypocritical and lazy of a “Respectable” video game company.
The fastest high rated made!
by Awesomebird4 on 2016/08/31 20:30
Sonic is back, and better than ever! With new sidekick tails, you have a cute little guy helping. My only complaint is that there isn't 2 player in story mode. And for the people who want sonic 3 and Knuckles on the App Store, face it. Sega would need to pay something to Michael Jaxon and as he is, well you know, Sega Can't make it. If this isn't the case Sega, then give sonic 3 and Knuckles a soundtrack switch thing for the original and remake. So if they can't, respect that but if they can, have it released.

WAY more fun then I expected
by MegaCass on 2019/09/12 00:01
I enjoyed this game a lot and I never expected it to be so fun and playing as Knuckles the echidna also brought a whole new experience and the music sounds really good and there’s so many zones too. And what I’m about to say has nothing to do with the game but I’m still asking, can you please add Sonic 3 and knuckles, I really want to play it one day
I lost my progress :(
by churchman300 on 2019/09/08 15:37
Edit: Today I was playing (Sunday, September 8) and I wanted to play. Keep in mind; I had 3 Complete save files, and was on Metropolis 3 with knuckles. So, the game was lagging so I closed it and got back on. I went to my saves, and ALL of the progress, was gone. That’s why I dropped a 1-star review. Update Your Game! Add Sonic 3 for iOS ya dang Sega Forever! 👎

by Sparatan117 on 2019/09/06 07:24
The game runs fine (although just about any emulator in the past 10 years has been able to do that). The controls however are absolutely terrible. The thumb stick for controlling sonic is incredibly spongy and slow to respond. Don’t expect to make it to the end of the game, because you’ll probably never make it.
CLASSIC
by BlueMaster55 on 2019/09/04 01:34
I was searching the store to download sonic runners for the first time when I saw some of the classics genesis games. I downloaded the first one and was surprised. And BTW Sonic 2 was the first game I ever completed. I want more. Why not add Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles while you’re are it. AND KNUCKLES (lol)

And then I press “Start Game” and it shows me an ad. After the ad, the WHOLE screen turns black for a few seconds and it starts the whole app again. :( ease fix and i will rate 5 stars.

A couple bugs.
by Asomeguy425 on 2019/08/14 19:08
There’s a few minor problems going on with the iPhoneX version of this game, and I’m certain it has to do with the iPhoneX’s bigger screen. Stuff like how you’re still able to see Sonic to the very right of the screen when clearing a zone’s Act 1. Another being that in Chemical Plant, some of the towers in the background seem to appear and disappear from the outer parts of the screen. I’ve also noticed that when the zone’s name comes in before beginning a level, it stays in place for just a second before sliding in and back out like normal. This is one of the best ports of Sonic 2, and I’d love to see these minor bugs finally fixed. Thank you :)
I get ads even though I paid
by Agent Donut on 2019/08/14 03:47
I bought this game back when it still costed a few dollars, but when it was made free my app updated and I started getting ads. I tried to confirm my purchase through the app but it won’t register? I feel like it should still cost money since no one that plays it likes the ads lol

If your a sonic fan GET THIS APP!!!!! It’s super awesome and adventurous and I did just download it the day I posted this but STILL!!! I am stuck on the Eggman casino battle and OHMYGOSHHHHHH it’s very very VERY hard but I think I just need to practice and I’ll get it, and idk why but it crashed when I tried to use it the first time then it worked, so I guess it just glitched that one time, and it does unfortunately have quite the adds, but I say ITS WORTH IT!!!!
Sound has stopped working
by Tonysifin on 2019/07/27 17:18
Having so much fun with the game but for some reason the sound has stopped working within the game. The app loads and makes noises and music just fine but as soon as the game actually starts, the sound cuts out. Please fix
Hey this game is good people
by The SammyClassicSonicFan on 2019/07/26 18:59
I had fun playing this, there is a lot of ads but I don’t care, it’s still sonic 2 for free. Stop complaining this game is a classic and is one of the best sonic games.
Is there super sonic
by hxjfjdhcjdhvjsbvywk on 2019/07/25 17:52
I wish there was super sonic please add it to the game it be amazing to have that if you add that boss battles would be easier like the death egg boss fight
Still no restore purchases button
by liquidtenmillion on 2019/07/19 02:24
I still can’t restore the app that I paid for. The button is completely missing. It used to be in the settings menu, now there is just a blank spot there. It has been this way for a few years now.

I love sonic 2!
by Dudcfkhfsxkkf on 2019/07/16 00:08
This app is great and I’m happy it has debug and level select! I’ve loved these games for a long time and I am happy to see them on the App Store! I really hope they release sonic 3.
Good game but something with the ad?
by Mariofan 2011 on 2019/07/15 15:53
Something wrong about the exit ad I can’t exit the ad and I can’t resume my game so fix this pleaseeeee
Adverts
by CoolCupHead22 on 2019/07/15 13:38
Yeah so I love this game because I love sonic but the only thing is ads they make the game take FOREVER to get to play but otherwise the game is just sonic and it’s really fun!
Amy Rose & Cream should be added + 5th and 6th saver
by Djgreunke on 2019/07/14 18:45
Why Amy Rose and cream Should be added? Well, because Amy Rose and Cream will be playable characters, even beat dr. Eggman. Why we need a saver 5 & 6? Well,because we need 2 more characters in the game!!!
Amazing

So many ads and horribly frustrating
by jqwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm on 2019/07/07 12:23
I keep getting bombarded with ads every time I do dang near anything. One time I accidentally paused and was thrown into a ad hell where it completely bombarded me with a quadruple zillion ads and I couldn’t escape. But it doesn’t stop there. The controls are absolute garbage and the monkey in emerald hill can fall in a hole. It’s literally impossible to get past without getting hit. I seriously think this game should be better and I hope you fix the ads and the controls.
Thank you SEGA
by Go gamemer on 2019/07/05 22:46
This game brings me back to the old days and I love how the characters are free
I LOVE SEGA!!!!!!🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩😅😅😂😂🤣🤣 ice bird fan 146
by Sugar mama of 3 on 2019/06/28 09:01
Wow! This game is so cool that I hardly think this takes a punch 🥊 from sonic the hedgehog 🦔! And those stupid sanic games are bad! Why? Because those games are bug games! And they have way...too...many......adds! And I love ❤️ all the zones!
Add sonic3 and knuckles and why can’t I turn to super tails?
by gioscoolducks3 (sub to me) on 2019/06/27 17:37
I know sonic 1 2 and cd came out for iOS and android but what I think is missing is sonic3 and knuckles I really enjoyed the games that came out for iOS but I thinks what is really missing is sonic3 and knuckles also I can’t turn to super tails I got all 7 chaos emeralds and I had 50 rings and then I pressed jump 2 times didn’t work it works for sonic and knuckles but not tails please fix that
Gangbanged by ads
by K!ch!ga! on 2019/06/27 13:56
Completely unplayable due to the number of ads that bombard you and end up crashing the game. Also pretty convenient that you need wifi to play the game so that it makes it impossible to avoid. Absolutely useless.
Amazing!
by Cath Drwg on 2019/06/27 01:39
This is exactly how I remember it from the when I was a child! Start the game. Choose your age. 8. Immediately get served an ad with a pickup line. (I said I was 8!) Choose your character, while viewing another ad on the screen at the same time. Play a level. Play ... an ad?! Play an ad with no obvious X icon. Uninstall. The onscreen controls were decent, so that’s something. The game play was accurate, at least. I was spewing rings like the best.
I love this game
by sklawitt2003 on 2019/06/22 18:25
I love this game and it has knuckles.i have one complaint tho. What happened to the end of the 1st level of chemical plant I should climb the wall, get a life and zoom to the end, it's all changed up there now. Why?
Ads make this great game unplayable
by gr4v17y on 2019/06/22 17:31
You may as well not even make the game free. Just have it up for a price. This free version with ads is nearly unplayable, as so many ads keep coming and coming. Sometimes you’ll sit through the 30 second ad only to have the same one start right back up again. It won’t even let me play the game because of an endless loop of the same ads over and over resulting in a black screen. Don’t even bother offering this game for free, just have it for sale. The ads render your product nearly unplayable, and this is unfortunate because it is a very well made mobile port, very smooth with tight controls. I would have rather just seen the game on the App Store for its price, rather than download this atrocious ad-riddled version that cannot even be enjoyed.
Awesome game
by Caramelo🌙🍭 on 2019/06/18 16:43
This game was challenging which I love as well as the contribution to the retro style sonic use to have which is a plus. Overall amazing game. I would definitely enjoy a new retro sonic app to play on my spare time. By the way this works on my iPhone XR

FIX SCRAP BRAIN ZONE ACT 2 BUG/GLITCH!!!!!!!
by sonicthechilidog on 2019/06/14 21:24
Rest of game really good. I got all the emeralds and when I got to scrap brain act 2 and finish it, the cutscene for act three makes the camera move up and causes sonic to die meaning I’m in an infinite loop where I can only play the game until act 2 of scrap brain
Too many ads
by The extremely stupid doritard on 2019/06/13 01:05
Seriously, the original was fine with ads, but this is just horrible. Not only are you unable to skip ads after 5 seconds, but you may get 2 ads at a time. This needs to get fixed now.
Why JUST WHY>:C
by hgtfhhdehubgt on 2019/06/12 03:12

Difficulty problem
by orange orange orang on 2019/06/12 02:19
I love this game It is great beacause I only have sonic mania on my Nintendo switch and I couldn’t beat the boss in stardust speedway speaking of difficulty cemacal plant zone is too hard (due to the disappearing platforms).I hope I can beat It and I hope Sega sees this review.thank you Sega.

I usually get a unskippable ad but the game is AWESOME👍
Good but please make sonic 3

by datbendyboi on 2019/05/26 21:36
Love the game, great classic but the ads are a great problem. Every time you enter the game ad, every time you lose all your lives, ad. Developers please read this and get rid of your ads cause I ain’t paying just to get rid of the ads so I can play my favorite classic
2 stars down, game can be raged at
by Hoefec on 2019/05/26 03:14
I’ve been raging on the 2ND LEVEL-Chemical Plant. Not the water part, but at the boss ending. The PLATES that flip always kill me. I’m ready to uninstall this game. I thought I’d get a game easier than Sonic Forces. But, as it turns out, this seems WAY, WAY harder than Sonic Forces. I’m tired of this, but I still want to beat the game in order to feel very happy about it. I don’t have much more to say since I’m stuck. Couldn’t an easier level go before chemical plant? -Gosh. This level is SO easy on Sonic Forces.-Anyway, if I’m still raging, then I should just stop. Mainly so I don’t burn my whole house down. XD but anyway, it’s not the best game I’ve ever played. SEGA, make this game easier for me! I’m bad enough at games. Took me forever to beat Cuphead. Just wow-Sonic is my favorite game series, but if you don’t make it easier I’ll go back to being a Cuphead fan!!!
TOO MANY ADS!!! 😡

Fanlly tails is here
by shadow 2736 on 2019/05/24 00:01
Tails was not in sonic 1 or the master system in sonic2 now saga wanted to put tails so we could find secart areas and so we could fly
Gotta Go Fast
by PacManBoi on 2019/05/23 00:16
I do think that this is truly the game that made Sonic the icon he is today. I mean, come on! This is the game that first had the Spin Dash! And Tails! And even an early Metal Sonic! It’s got it all, and adding Knuckles and Hidden Palace was a nice touch. Please remaster Sonic 3 and Knuckles! Also, I don’t know how it would work but Sonic Mania Mobile would be incredible too!
CONTAINS CHEAT CODES 😀
by X-da man!oooohhhh yeah! on 2019/05/22 00:44
I think this app is absolutely great. But the chaos emeralds are really hard to get. Which is not an error. I do like that the cheat codes have not been removed. The debug one does work, but you can’t use it because of the lack of buttons. The one you can actually use is the Super Sonic one. (In no save mode only) When the game starts, after sonic runs around, hit the letters in this order: S-E-G-A (you will hear a ring sound). When the character(s) show up and the text at the bottom shows up, swipe up from the bottom of the screen with two fingers. The level select will show up. Go down to the sound test and play these sound tests in this order: 4-1-2-6. You will hear the sound of Sonic getting a chaos emerald. Proceed to play a level. In the level collect 50 rings, then jump, while in the air, hit the jump button again, and you will become Super Sonic, you have to constantly collect rings to stay super.
This is a waste of time; I don’t recommend this game!
by pls mke dsk prt easer on 2019/05/22 00:16
It’s impossible to beat the Death Egg Robot. The boss is a waste of time altogether. SEGA, Sonic Team, this (in my opinion) is one of your biggest failures. DON’T DOWNLOAD IT!!! (Oh, by the way, this game has too many ads... WAY TOO MANY ADS!)
Best game ever

Thanks Sega America for the awesome game!
by Annoying Orange 2 on 2019/05/21 21:27

Not free, full of ads.
by cole9k on 2019/05/19 21:04
Once you download and start it then asks you to pay 1.99. Could have just shown the price before download. Plus, some ads are interactive, cant exit til you “finish”. Another example of a bad marketing.

by InfinityNumi on 2019/05/15 00:52
so i made this review to tell that it is a great game, but now they put advertisements and make you pay for an ad free experience, and the ads are everywhere and quite annoying. So what i digger is that to lower the amount of ads that they play and make the game more not as ad filled.

by eden destroyer on 2019/05/14 23:41
This is the best game. Just one glitch that I should point out. When I battle mecha sonic. every time I get a few hits and then when I try to hit him again I die. and its not even the time when he spinballs and you can't hit him. PLEASE FIX THIS GLITCH!!!!!!!!! I still love this game ❤️❤️. 💙💙💙 GO SONIC!!!!!!!💙💙💙please fix this glitch I really want to beat death egg 😃😃please

1 and 2 are great, but where is 3?
by HyperSonicTheHedgehog on 2019/05/02 16:02
usually, i love a good sonic game! 1 and 2 on iphone have been so fun lately, but u guys should make a 3. where it has sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles (which is part 2 of sonic three) where u can use debug mode, and get the chaos and super emeralds to turn into super sonic, hyper sonic, super knuckles, hyper knuckles, and super tails. so that's pretty much it. P.S i love all ur sonic games i just got Mania Plus and Forces on xbox one
So basically sega no ads for a month
by bunch165 on 2019/05/01 13:23
So basically give every body no ads for a month or two on both sonic one and sonic two and if you don’t I’ll leave a bad review on every game you made :)
Great but hard
by Bryan recreum on 2019/05/01 00:36
I like that you can turn super sonic,be tails and knuckles,and even a secret zone.its cool but the special stage is hard and the death egg to with 2 bosses and no rings so sega,for the death egg,just put at least 1 ring
Hidden Palace Zone music incorrect
by Majestic Manny on 2019/04/28 20:19
The game is good however, everyone knows that the real song for the HPZ is song # 10 on Sonic 2 sound test menu. This is very evident after testing Sonic 2 (OG) Genesis with a game genie code that clearly shows Hidden Palace Zone intro screen with song #10 music. Why did the people doing the remake chose to ignore that fact???
This is great!
by thedragonthatsender on 2019/04/27 21:08

Plz do sonic 3 and Knux for mobile! P.s amazing game!
by coooolsmg4 on 2019/04/25 01:41
PLZ do sonic 3 and knux for mobile PLZ I really don’t want SEGA to turn this genius sonic 3 and knuckles idea for mobile down. Though, sonic 2 for mobile is great! I have both sonic 1 and 2 for mobile and beat them and think they’re both really cool but want to see sonic 3 and knuckles for mobile. I also bet lots of other fans think you should make sonic 3 and knux for mobile because it’s a great game! Not just because we want you to release it, but it’s an awesome game and would really have an entire different effect on sonic fans if you released sonic 3 and knuckles for mobile. Please don’t turn this idea down! Thank you!
Great

Great Port, Suffers from Controls
by zelos33333 on 2019/04/21 18:35
This is honestly an amazing port for anyone who wants to play this game on their phone, and has some awesome additional content that demonstrates Christian Whitehead’s knowledge of past Sonic game development. The touch screen controls seem to throw out a lot of the self control a player has when actually having buttons and a dpad or joystick to guide them through, and become particularly frustrating toward the end of the game when pitfalls become more common. While it suffers from these controls, this port is otherwise fantastic.
Pretty good but
by supr sanic 45 on 2019/04/21 14:04
It needs work on the controls also when I’m trying to get tails to fly he just goes away
Freaking awesome 💯💯💯

This game is amazing though the ads bug me but it's worth waiting. Great music, great port, great backgrounds, EVERYTHING IS GREAT. This is a true Sonic game. Oh and by the way when is Sonic Mania mobile coming out. Really excited for it. Also the new Sonic movie better be good because I have high hopes for it. Don't fail me now SEGA and does reading this, this a game worth getting
Decent
by Drummnj on 2019/04/20 13:47

Love the game but is glitchy
by rwallen3 on 2019/04/18 16:40
One thing I’ve noticed while playing is that the jump button is really unresponsive at times and sometimes downright doesn’t even work. It’s annoying once you reach the death egg and you have to fight silver sonic and death egg robo
Best Game ever or one of
by wwwwwwesscvuio on 2019/04/16 18:04
I personally think every Sonic game is amazing the only won I want on iOS is Sonic 3 and knuckles but every game by Sega has been made great and thanks to all the workers in service games aka Sega and I’m only 10 I have a Sega Genesis and a iPhone so yay and to every one at Sega you are the heart and soul of Sonic the hedgehog with out you I would have to kill turtles as a plumber thanks to you I play as the classic blue blur and save animals for the evil dr ivor Robotnick I cant wait to see what the future of Sonic holds but it’s in your hands until then gota go fast Ciao -a 10 year old fan

Glitch, please help
by RandomGirl16 on 2017/11/20 06:09
Hey! Best app I’ve spent money on (Also the only app I’ve spent money on so far tbh, lol). Having lots of fun, way easier now than it was when I was 3 or 4 and playing on my Sega genesis (though still challenging!). That said, I’m leaving 4 stars instead of 5 because I can’t find a place on the app or your website that addresses the issue I’m currently having. I reached the death egg zone, both as knuckles and as sonic+tails (well, at that point in the game it’s really just sonic but I digress). I was playing and dying (lol) as sonic, and I thought that it would be easier as knuckles since he can grab walls, so I beat the winged fortress zone that I was on and began the death egg zone as knuckles. I ended up dying again anyway because it’s still difficult (especially when the spikes explode out lol), but once I died, when I went back to my save files, both files showed as sonic+tails save files. I tested, and indeed, I’m sonic on both of them now. I’m not sure how this glitch happened or how to get my save file where I was knuckles on the death egg back. Would appreciate help, idk what to do beyond closing and restarting app and turning the phone off and back on. Will delete this description and make this review five stars if you can fix that or if the app somehow fixes its own error.
Sega Forever is Denuvo for iOS
by Kyudan 62 on 2017/11/29 05:26
The classic Sonic series was probably one of the first sets of games I've played, and they're probably why I love retro games. The Christian Whitehead ports for iOS are wonderful, and I'm glad to have the old Sonic games on my iPad. I hate it, however, when Sega adds unnecessary garbage like Sega Forever to their games. The mobile port of Sonic 2 was just as great as the original with controls if not better. Since that Sega Forever update, the controls just broke. The d-pad would have a delay of 1-5 seconds before either changing directions or resetting when I let go. The jump button no longer works half of the time, forcing me to die over and over. Even the momentum came off as a bit broken. This makes the whole game nearly unplayable. Nobody likes losing control in a game, and neither do I. The ad issue was moot to me because I paid three dollars before the garbage Sega Forever update. This is why you don't let Sega mess with Classic Sonic. I'm not willing to buy another one of your ports or games unless I know for a FACT that someone more responsible is behind the controls. Get rid of the update! Go back to when it was run by Chris Whitehead. Only then will I put 5 stars, you money-hungry, thick headed, fools.
Just what the world needs.
by MantheMan5 on 2016/04/27 00:03
One year after the world saw the birth of an international icon, the fastest thing alive is back at it again with a new round of ways to end the plot of Dr. Robotnik. Sonic finally encounters one who has super speed just like him, but much more smarts and much less wits than Sonic. Sonic and Tails subsequently become the best known alliance in fiction that possibly is more popular than Mario and Luigi. Let me get my biggest point out of the way. Casino Night Zone? That is a way to treat and get rid of a gambling addiction. It is one of my favorite zones in the existence of Sonic the Hedgehog. Only in this port is the zone improved. Also, Sega is quite cunning to have Knuckles as an available character, deeming it impossible to beat Robotnik in space due to the shortened height of Knuckles' jumps. In reality, it is easy to beat Robotnik as Knuckles. Quite a tricky move by Sega there. This game is just the start of a brand new day for the blue blue. The day has yet to end. There is nothing that needs tone brought to the attention of Sega about this app besides the fact everyone did a phenomenal job making this port. Sonic the Hedgehog 1 was cool, but Sonic the Hedgehog 2 leaves fire in its footsteps. Play the game!
A classic re-imagined, but one minor flaw
by The reviewer person thing on 2017/11/23 22:39
There’s not much really to say, it’s sonic 2 with better sprites and visuals, I love it! But..there is one thing I must address, and that is: THE ADS. These things are everywhere, from when you enter a special stage, when you boot up the game, and EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU RESUME THE GAME AFTER PAUSING, THERES AN AD! But I get it, this is a free port and I can pay to have them removed, but, since I don’t have that money, I’m forced to watch 20 seconds of horrible gameplay. That’s not even the worst of it, there is this weird glitch that happens when you start up the game and go to your save files, the game acts like it’s going to give you an ad, but the screen just goes black, and it stays like that until you exit and restart the app, it also happens when I pause and resume the game, so if I grab 3 Chaos emeralds in a stage and pause my game, I’m basically gambling my emeralds. I do not hate this game, and I get why they have to put ads in there, but if you could fix that black screen of death, that would be great! 4.8/5.0
WAY too many ads.
by Tatetanic on 2018/05/26 03:10
Normally I’m okay with ads... when they come after a level or at a stopping/intermission point, like in the original game. But when they come in the middle of GAMEPLAY? That’s ridiculous! Sometimes they even come back-to-back, and once I even got an ad ON TOP OF AN AD! (Yes, i know you can buy the ad-free version, but you shouldn’t have to BUY smooth gameplay!) As an example, during a special stage (in Emerald Hill) I got FIVE ADS right next to each other. FIVE! The gameplay itself is excellent, which is why it’s rated three stars by me, but the ads are the main problem. Please fix this; I would say maybe after each act, but definitely not in the middle of playing the game. As an added request, make the game offline-playable, and I would definitely rate it five stars. Edit: I LITERALLY CAN’T PLAY THE GAME. The thing is, when you get an ad that opens into an internet tab, it pauses the game. When you unpause, it gives you a video ad. Then a new tab ad opens in the middle of the video ad and pauses the game, you unpause, a video ad plays, then a new tab opens in the video ad, etc. The game is unplayable, unless your idea of playing is advancing two frames in between constantly playing ads, and for that, I’m wishing there was a zero-star option.
An ad glitch?
by Anon in Cyan on 2017/12/01 11:02
This is seriously an amazing port of the Sonic 2 game. So good that I will buy the ad free version once I'm allowed to (yeah pretty lame of me to admit). However, in the meantime, there's a bug (or something?) that's bothering me a bit... I don't know if I'm just uninformed about these types of things but whenever some ads play the sound goes out for the whole game?? That's not all, sometimes after the ad plays the screen just goes black (or on worst occasions, an ad is supposed to pop up and it just appears black). Of course I could just restart the app, however, with the frequency of these ads showing, I never know when the glitches (?) are about to occur. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the ads when I know I'm playing such a good game for free. However, I do mind when they actually affect my gameplay experience this greatly. Then again I almost never invest so much time in an app so I'm new to this kind of thing I guess. I don't know but I just thought I'd drop this by.
CONTAINS CHEAT CODES 😀
by X-da man!oooohhhh yeah! on 2019/05/22 00:44
I think this app is absolutely great. But the chaos emeralds are really hard to get. Which is not an error. I do like that the cheat codes have not been removed. The debug one does work, but you can’t use it because of the lack of buttons. The one you can actually use is the Super Sonic one. (In no save mode only) When the game starts, after sonic runs around, hit the letters in this order: S-E-G-A (you will hear a ring sound). When the character(s) show up and the text at the bottom shows up, swipe up from the bottom of the screen with two fingers. The level select will show up. Go down to the sound test and play these sound tests in this order: 4-1-2-6. You will hear the sound of Sonic getting a chaos emerald. Proceed to play a level. In the level collect 50 rings, then jump, while in the air, hit the jump button again, and you will become Super Sonic, you have to constantly collect rings to stay super.
Good remake, bad ad placement
by Bobobzilla on 2018/02/09 00:21
I am a lucky user who has had Sonic 2 and 1 purchased even when the games were emulated. Then, something amazing happened in 2013. These great games were remade, filled to the brim with features! However, the Sonic 1, 2, and CD remakes took a dark turn in the form of “SEGA Forever.” There are three types of ads in Sonic 2. One when you click on “PLAY GAME,” one between Acts, and one when you...resume the game. SEGA, if you wanna have ads, maybe you can add a mode where the game screen is shrunk a little, but it leaves room for ad banners. And I mean those short rectangular ads. Personally, I’m fine with my Sonic Mega Collection and Sonic Gems Collection discs. And the thing I’m MOST bothered about, I couldn’t restore my precious Sonic 1 purchase. On a side note, SEGA is kinda lying to us. When you “restore the purchase” on Sonic CD (which I didn’t do), there’s still a little Sonic Forces ad in the menu. Just buy a GameCube, PS3, or XBOX 360, guys...I guess this review wasn’t COMPLETELY accurate to my opinion, but hey, you gotta say something! (Note: pls fix mania debug it shouldn’t be this limiting i want more tails/knuckles abuse options)
BEST SONIC GAME (but with adds)
by Tat one boi on 2018/08/19 21:32
I love the classic sonic series and this game HAS to be my favorite, I still remover when I was young I played this game on the Xbox 360 me and my brother had, I loved being Tails and I liked the fact that there was even a 2 player mode (BTW can we get some of that good 2 player in this app) But here is the catch, when I bought this it was LITTERED with adds, I was thinking “I PAID FOR A GAME WITH ADDS AND I NEED TO SPEND MORE MONEY TO GET RID OF THEM!!!!!” Yeah I thought I was scammed, so I still played the game and then when I was about to defeat the final boss and I had no rings and 1 life left,6 ADDS IN A ROW BABY, THEN IT SENT ME TO AN INTERNET TAB, THAT PAUSED MY GAME AND WHEN I COULD FINALLY PLAY AGAIN, BOOM I DIED so yeah Sega please lower the price of removing adds please to make the experience for the player better for the player, we don’t want another Electronic Arts that litters the game with micro transactions and paying to rid of things that shouldn’t be in the game in the first place, Thank You.
Just spend the two bucks
by shadowgoo33 on 2018/05/11 20:24
I recommend using the free version as a demo to try it and see if you like it first. The ads are pretty insufferable in the free version, since they pop up between every stage and even when you unpause the game. That said, two bucks to have one of the genesis’s flagship platformers on the go is a pretty solid deal. Sonic 2 actually works really well as a mobile game since the controls are super simple and the health system is really forgiving, so the loss of precision from using a touch screen compared to using a controller doesn’t matter too much (at least until the final bosses, but they’re still doable). Also, they added a save system, so the really tough endgame stages aren’t as big of a stumbling block as they are in the original version.
Very Impressed👍
by Durpy bit on 2018/06/07 21:37
(Game backstory) was Join Sonic and Miles “Tails” Prower as they venture through a vast wide place known as “West side island.” This place ranges from beautiful hills to underground caves to a new zone, Hidden palace zone! This was scrapped in the original, Sonic the hedgehog 2, from 1992. But there is a problem for Sonic and Miles. Dr. Robotnik is back at it again, trying to collect all 7 “sol” emeralds, to power his ultimate creation, the death egg! Help Sonic and “Tails” to collect the emeralds back and take down Dr. Robotnik and the death egg, to save the day! (My own review) I promised you a glowing, five star review if you fixed the touch controls. (I’m sorry I’m so late, lol.) One question I do have is, in the latest update, the VS mode was removed, and replaced with the “Segazine”. Can you please get it back? I miss it! Thank you anyways, and I hope you have an awesome day! Keep up the good work!
Great Game but where is 3?
by GreatBobcat on 2017/02/20 15:56
I love this game, sonic 2 has been my 2 favorite game for a long time. I am now re downloading this game years after its release and its still great, but I still see you haven't made sonic 3 & knuckles yet. Sonic 3 & knuckles is my favorite game ever, and I knew at the time of this games release it may take a while to make the third game but, I'm now coming back 2-3 years later and see no progress. I would love to have my favorite on mobile,But still I look on the App Store only seeing sonic 1, 2, CD, and 4 episode 1 and 2. Why not make sonic 3? I still want to give this game full credit but I would have expected some progress on sonic 3 & knuckles so I'm taking off a star, but anyways this is still a very good game and I'm very happy I can play one of the best classic sonic games on mobile.
Absolute Greatness!
by Someoneelsexgseh on 2016/06/25 20:39
Sonic 2 is considered by many to be the best Sonic game. Christian Whitehead's remake here is a thing of beauty! Having the same graphics, but making them more silky smooth (Play the Bonus Stages in the original or a port of the original then the ones in this remake and you'll see what I mean!) as well as adding a plethora of new features! My favorite is the addition of my favorite lost Sonic Zone, Hidden Palace! I've always wanted an official level of it, because it is gorgeous, and the one provided is everything I could have wanted in the stage! The controls are a bit off, (not enough to make the game less enjoyable, though) I suppose, though, I am playing on a Smart Phone, so it would be expected... I can only hope Whitehead gets to my favorite in the series, Sonic 3... Maybe someday...
Gotta go write a review. Get it... #memes
by Matt Matty Matthew on 2018/04/27 14:44
Special stages as we know are hard, but sonic 2 is the bane of our lives for one reason alone. No frames that you're invincible, so you can hit over and over again and lose all your rings. Also I'm pretty sure that the game gets unreasonable harder when you reach oil ocean zone. Let's have blue super sonic in reverse. so all you gotta do is max the ring count in debug mode and then destroy a bunch of life 📦. Sega please don't patch this it's not a big deal. Also this glitch is in sonic 1. iOS. Sega please show this letter to Christian Whitehead. Dear CW Remember 2 years ago how you showed us your beta sonic 3 and knuckles port, but the project down for some reason. Well I think you can make S3&K IOS! Your fans of Sonic Retro can, I think you can... SO YOU CAN!!!! So get to it. From Matthew Wong Breaking News. Special stage 8 was found in this game yesterday. I found out that in the level selection if you press 7 then 8 you will go there. If your like me you like to spin dash off screen after you hit the goal post. Well for some reason in Hilltop Zone act 1 of you spindash off screen Sonic will get stuck as there is a slope which has a sonic one like design.
Great Game, Shameless advertising
by Sonic DX 123 on 2017/11/29 22:48
I want to start off by saying I am a huge sonic fan. Sonic 2 is a wonderful game and this is probably the best version of it. However the adds are terrible. SEGA has done this to sonic 1 and CD as well, but this is the one game I played the most out of those 3. I payed for this game back before it was free. Even though I’ve “restored my purchase” the game still runs worse than it did before the free to play update, and it goes back to showing me adds after a few hours of play. I still think this game is fantastic and playable with adds, but SEGA needs to stop trying to milk their old mobile games, especially when many users already payed full price for the game. At the very least, SEGA needs to fix the restore purchases problem on all the sonic apps they have made free to play. Lastly, I know it has been said before, but we need Sonic 3&K to get a mobile port.
Too... Many... ads!
by Derpman123 on 2018/05/29 02:15
The newest update has added so many adds that I can barely play the game anymore. This game was so much fun as a kid on the genesis, but the game has way way way too many ads! Whenever I try to open up the games saves, it just shows an ad. This problem happens every time I also go to a different act, or different zone. Imagine inbetween each level in super mario bros. You had to pause for the game to load the new stage for 5 seconds. Every time, a commercial plays. Now play until 8-4. See why I’m so annoyed? This game has the generic problem of many games on the AppStore that are just basic cash grabs. So many ads the game is unplayable. F you SEGA. Nintendo does what SEGA can’t. Produce a product on phones that doesn’t do ads. That’s saying something. Update: the stupid ads can’t be fixed by turning off the WiFi or turning on airplane mode. It pops up with messages telling me to get to internet. Sadly that means I can’t play it while I’m off on a trip with no WiFi.
Amazing!!
by MarioLuigi444 on 2019/01/15 00:16
I absolutely love this game!! A retro classic like this on my iPhone just feels amazing, even if I have no Bluetooth controllers on hand. I’m already at Death Egg Zone with Tails and Knuckles. Love the iMessage stickers as a bonus and the 2P V.S. Mode. The Hidden Palace is a nice touch (it IS new, right?) What would be cool is if you made a 2P Co-op for the game as Sonic and Tails. It would be easier for Sonic to grab Tails when flying. Also when the Sonic Mania Plus phase is over, add Mighty and Ray, to both Sonic and Sonic 2, maybe as an in app purchase. The Ads are pretty annoying, but not annoying enough for me to stop. Love this game a lot and would be hyped to see Sonic 3 & Knuckles! (I mean in Sonic 4 ep 1 it continues from 3&K so why not?) Looking forward to getting enough storage for 1, CD, 4 ep 1, and 4 ep 2.
This Game is a Bit Better Than The Original, But...
by Jonah Farley on 2018/02/06 13:43
So, I just wanna say that this port of Sonic 2 is great, and I’m proud of Sonic Team for hiring good game designers! But there is one question...will there also be a Sonic 3 & Knuckles port for mobile? I mean, we got the first two original Sonic games ported to the App Store, but why hasn’t Sonic 3 & Knuckles been ported as well? It’s probably one of the best Sonic games in the series, so it deserves to have a mobile version! I’m sorry if I sound like I’m just being a whiny brat, but c’mon Sonic Team! Give the fans what they want! The next official Sonic game release can wait. I don’t wanna be rude, I’m just stating my opinion. So please, do us all a favor and make a mobile version of Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Please?
Sega Forever Ruined my Game....
by ActionBoy774 on 2017/12/06 21:21
Old review: Listen, I’m not hating on this game. I can honestly say that this is one of the best ports I’ve ever seen or played. Unfortunately , the sega forever update had ruined that for me. The biggest issue I have right now? The jumping. With the new update, the jump button is very unresponsive. I don’t know why, It just is. The jump button is a key component in the sonic games. And without this function working as accurately as they need to be, it makes the game practically unplayable... Please, do what you can sega. We deserve better then this load of trash!!! Update: THANK YOU SEGA!!! You finally answered our complaints!!! The jump is fixed!! The original port is back!!! Thank you sega! As promised, here are your 5 stars!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This Update Was...
by qandr on 2018/06/06 15:50
...not exactly that god. Keep in mind that this review is of the latest update, not the game. Though, this game is my favorite Sonic game alongside Sonic Mania. Anyway, I don’t really like that you removed the 2-Player VS. mode. I had a lot of fun with it. Also, I’m not really interested in getting your Segazine. Though, the good part about this update is the update description: “Tails has had a look under the hood and made the game 42.4 percent better!” I love it because it involves my favorite Sonic character (Tails) doing what he loves: working on machines! Also, I heard Eggman’s plan in Sonic 1 to bug the game has failed. HA!!! I hope you add back 2-Player VS. mode, and I hope Sonic Mania Plus goes well! -SuperRyanGaming (My Game Center Account)
A couple bugs.
by Asomeguy425 on 2019/08/14 19:08
There’s a few minor problems going on with the iPhoneX version of this game, and I’m certain it has to do with the iPhoneX’s bigger screen. Stuff like how you’re still able to see Sonic to the very right of the screen when clearing a zone’s Act 1. Another being that in Chemical Plant, some of the towers in the background seem to appear and disappear from the outer parts of the screen. I’ve also noticed that when the zone’s name comes in before beginning a level, it stays in place for just a second before sliding in and back out like normal. This is one of the best ports of Sonic 2, and I’d love to see these minor bugs finally fixed. Thank you :)
Restore purchase not working
by georgedonnelly on 2018/09/04 19:12
Bought this game way before the whole sega classic ad update, and it's rather frustrating that I bought this game, and, alas, the restore purchase function is broken. This has been a problem for a long time now, and I even contacted support, and still nothing. I have to wonder if Sega is trying to cash into money from people who bought the game. That being said, this is a decently good game. Sonic Two on its own has quite a few design problems, such as the enemy placement, the final boss, no saves, and straight up unfair deaths. Thankfully, this remake introduces saves, making everything else less horrible. This game makes up for it by having tons of interesting places and Zones, something I think Sonic One was missing, though Sonic One is still technically better designed, I kinda prefer this game, though in a way I also prefer the first. Both of these games (CD, too) pale pretty badly to Mania, though. The reason for the scoring: The whole ad problems. I am not going to deal with ads for a game I already paid for, until some date (knowing companies, probably a year or so) to have what I paid for again. I'd rate this game four stars without the whole ad problems. (Ya fixed it for Sonic One. Consider doing it for two?)
You get two stars this time Sega
by Nickuza on 2017/11/25 22:29
I have played all the games in the sega forever line of mobile games. This game is the first game to not have lag issues. The previous entires in the sega forever line would have lag when the sound was off, turn the sound on and the lag doubles. The other issue with these games is the amount of ads. Holy smokes there are so many ads. In between stages, pausing the games, going back to the home screen to take a call or answer a text message. It’s seems like there is an ad every corner you turn and it takes me out of the game. I would rather get my Atgames sega hand held and play my classics on there. Sure the sound quality is not as good as on here but I would rather have that opposed to the ads and the lag and the poor touch screen controls. I will be uninstalling this game as soon as I submit this review.
Plz do sonic 3 and Knux for mobile! P.s amazing game!
by coooolsmg4 on 2019/04/25 01:41
PLZ do sonic 3 and knux for mobile PLZ I really don’t want SEGA to turn this genius sonic 3 and knuckles idea for mobile down. Though, sonic 2 for mobile is great! I have both sonic 1 and 2 for mobile and beat them and think they’re both really cool but want to see sonic 3 and knuckles for mobile. I also bet lots of other fans think you should make sonic 3 and knux for mobile because it’s a great game! Not just because we want you to release it, but it’s an awesome game and would really have an entire different effect on sonic fans if you released sonic 3 and knuckles for mobile. Please don’t turn this idea down! Thank you!
Try GameVice
by pablo_gri on 2018/07/08 04:34
Wow I just checked and last time I left a review for this game was 7 years ago!! Anyways back to the point, everyone who still plays this game and hates touch screen controls, please at least try this. Controller that clamps to your iOS device and fits all phones from iPhone 6-iPhone X’s. It’s called “Gamevice” total new experience on classic arcade game and newer supported games. Doesn’t use Bluetooth but connects directly to lightning port so lag is minimized. I am by no means an advertiser but just felt everyone who games on mobile devices should give it a try, works on many other games and has the button feel similar to Xbox or ps4 button layouts. Hopefully the more support this controller gets, the more developers will support it also, like fortnite for example. And it’s also available from the Apple website so you know if they approve it then it is surely compatible. I am currently using my controller for Minecraft, Real Racing 3, Sonic 2 only (sonic 1 and Sonic CD are still severely bugged on iPhone X), GTA ps2 ports, and final fantasy ps1 ports for iOS.
PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!
by gamigamer on 2017/12/01 05:53
Dear Sega and to all that read this: Beware the black screen of doom!!!! I got this game because I had played Sonic CD and that was fun but starting to get boring because I already beat the game multiple times and my father got this game on his Apple TV and I played it and it was super fun. Then I got the app, entered my age and then watched the cool intro and went past an add for Sonic Forces (I didn’t really care about it because I already had the game)and was at the home screen. I clicked play BUT IT DIDN’T WORK!!!!!!! It just went into a blank black screen and just stayed like that. So I rebooted the app but. it. didn’t. work. again. It just did the same thing and I did it again and again and AGAIN! I couldn’t get into the game, I already have noticed that other people have had the same problem so Sega, PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!>:(
One of the greatest platformers ever ruined.
by Guy who left this review on 2017/12/02 02:22
The latest update added a glitch so that holding right on the d-pad and jumping will cause the d-pad to be stuck going right until it is touched again. Please fix this, it has made the game no longer fun to play. Also, I paid for this game and you've stuffed ads into it years later. Even after "restoring purchase" an ad will pop up upon starting the app and it will check and "remove" future ads after I get past the first one. I bought this years ago, I have you money, I've enjoyed it thoroughly, get your ads off of the thing I PAID YOU FOR. This is not a free to play game. You got your money, stop being greedy. Either make it remove ads properly after I've "recovered" my purchase, or make a demo version. I'll continue to tarnish the high rating this classic deserves until you get your grubby ads out of the game. Thank you.
Great game but poor knuckles port
by 2345774 on 2018/04/18 19:08
I downloaded this game and was surprised that it had knuckles in it and that he was already unlocked (unlike the greedy mobile port of the original) I played through the entire game with him just to find out that the death egg robot is near impossible! Knuckles is only able to jump up the the robots arm and almost always hits it no matter how much momentum he has. The only way it would work is if you jumped at the exact middle frame of the robot shooting it’s arm any earlier will hit the arm any later will hit the robot but get crushed by the arm. Can you please fix knuckles so I don’t have to restart the game?
Ads make this great game unplayable
by gr4v17y on 2019/06/22 17:31
You may as well not even make the game free. Just have it up for a price. This free version with ads is nearly unplayable, as so many ads keep coming and coming. Sometimes you’ll sit through the 30 second ad only to have the same one start right back up again. It won’t even let me play the game because of an endless loop of the same ads over and over resulting in a black screen. Don’t even bother offering this game for free, just have it for sale. The ads render your product nearly unplayable, and this is unfortunate because it is a very well made mobile port, very smooth with tight controls. I would have rather just seen the game on the App Store for its price, rather than download this atrocious ad-riddled version that cannot even be enjoyed.
A great port ruined by ads
by 436375353738363738 on 2018/09/01 15:13
I love this game. I played this version when I was like 5. I wanted to get it again, but it is just LITTERED with ads. Almost to the point where it is unplayable. For example, when you are on the file select screen, there will be a pop up ad in the right side of the screen. Sounds fine, except for some reason, the ad won’t be on the right side of the screen. It will take up the entire screen! Why? And there’s more. If you pause the game, you will get an ad, and if you un-pause the game, you’ll get an ad! And the worst part is that this is with every single dang game they release on IOS. Why not just make the game 0.99 and with no ads instead of an unplayable free game. There is a way to remove ads for like 2.00 dollars, but why waste the money. This is just stupid.
MAJOR BUG: PLEASE FIX
by rentstar999 on 2017/12/05 00:08
Prior to the 4.0 update, this used to have quick, tight, and responsive controls just like all of the other iOS Sonic ports. After the update however, the input delay has become SIGNIFICANTLY more noticeable! Sometimes jumping takes almost AN ENTIRE SECOND to register after pushing the button, if you’re lucky to have it even register at all. This happens most commonly when trying to jump while running/walking. Sometimes while going left or right, the buttons even get STUCK! This leads to the gameplay experience being a lot more frustrating FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS. Parts of the game like the Special Stages, the Final Boss (ESPECIALLY as Knuckles, which was already bad without the “update”), and even just platforming in general feel like like you’ve been unfairly handicapped. Christian Whitehead, if you’re reading this, PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS.
Best way to play the game, however Sega ruined it.
by Monster Jam80 on 2017/11/24 04:52
Just to be clear, this is not a review against the game quality or Christian Whitehead. This is the best way to play Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and I wish this and the Sonic 1 port came to PC. Sega did this crappy mobile thing where the Sonic ports of Sonic CD, Sonic 1, and Sonic 2 more recently would be free, with ads. Why would anyone think this was a good idea??? These games were fine as they were, $3. But nooooooo, it had to be like anything else on mobile and have ads. This and the Denuvo thing on Sonic Mania (which by the way still hasn't been removed) are some of Sega's worst decisions as of late. This is a shame too since these are GREAT works by Christian Whitehead, and all other developers of Sonic Mania. Sega, why do you keep making crappy decisions?
Amazing game
by acejgreat (real) on 2017/12/11 17:11
It feels really nice to have the classic games back with more modes and extras than the originals. There are a couple glitches here and there but to find them, you really have to look for them. They aren’t something you’ll find on your first play through. I also like how you can go back into earlier zones once you’ve completed the game and collect the chaos emeralds there. One last thing I really like is how they kept the secret stage select and debug mode as part of the game. I have one question though... when is S3&K going to be available/released for mobile?
Two minor flaws.
by LinksMissing on 2016/12/12 03:10
In one of the metropolis zones there is a section of yellow wall bounce things that do not work so you have to find a different way through. Also there is an achievement to complete time attack mode in less than 45 min. It does not register as complete. You get the notification that you've completed it but when you go to achievement menu it shows you haven't competed it. I have completed all of the achievements including this one but it won't register as complete. I have even gotten my total time attack time down to 43:28 and still it shows incomplete. 😭
Love it!.....but
by silver654 on 2018/03/09 21:36
I love this game, it is just amazing, so far my favorite game. But there is a problem I recently encountered, I had finally beaten the game as sonic and I had all the emeralds. And I loved the unlocked stage select. I decided to play winged fortress and when I beat it I took me do the death egg. I decided I didn't want to play that so I exited the stage. When I went back to the menu It said death egg, not complete, so it had erased me beating the game!!!😡I was furious. Just wanted to let you know. It'll be some time until I beat death egg again because it felt like a one and done when I beat it.
amazing but there’s something that you should know
by Cole Owen Coplin on 2018/01/13 17:41
Sega u disgraceful trash-game developers. I can’t believe that u ripped off the super Saiyan form from dragonball. This is the evidence: seven chaos emeralds. Seven Dragon balls. Super Saiyan sounds pretty close to super sonic. There’s also the ever so important abilities of flight, being able to withstand extreme attacks, being able to breathe in and survive falls from space, and having golden hair. Super Saiyan was first released in a monger in 1991. You’re super sonic form was released as a playable form in Sonic the hedgehog two which was released in 1992. I’m surprised that no one has sued you for this yet.
They Ruined it
by SnowPea888 on 2017/11/23 15:17
First of all, I’m not hating on this game like the other guy said. Heck I bought the game and played it so much that I’ve beat it with Sonic and Tails. (Haven’t been doing it with knuckles much) Ever since Sega Forever update, I had trouble restoring my purchase. Once it did restore, I found out the jump button became VERY unresponsive. This was a huge bother as I was trying out Boss Time Attack, and I used the powered up spin dash a lot to go a lot quicker. Ever since that update, this games been terrible to play because the jump button is what pretty much makes up every attack and movement in the game. Won’t change to 5 stars until the jump button is fixed. I would’ve made the review just 1 Star if it wasn’t for the great level design
Need more sonic games
by SuperSegaSonic on 2019/02/20 22:15
You guys have only added 3 classic sonic games to apple, what the hell! You guys need more classic sonic games. You’d be surprised with how many people still even play the Master System. The number one game I think you guys should add is the secret sonic game (SegaSonic the Hedgehog.) I would buy and play every single version of every sonic game from the 90’s. You guys really need to add more classic sonic games to apple. You’d be surprised with how much more money you’d make. This comment is just to give you guys from Sega some ideas. I hope you do them, and good luck if you do!
I love Sonic 2. But there are bugs
by EGGS AND CHICKEN on 2017/11/24 12:36
Sonic 2 is one of my favorite games of all time, so when it was finally free on the app store I downloaded it immediately. I noticed some things. One, the jump button issue that everyone else has been talking about. Two, sometimes the ad redirects to a website with those fake offers that try to steal information like “you are our 1,000th viewer you win an iPhone” or something along those lines. 3.) sometimes I press start game or press my save file I just get a black screen, no ad or anything and it doesn’t go away. I don’t know why these are happening but I hope these can be fixed because I love Sonic 2 and I want to support SEGA.
The controls don't work correctly
by Branchminer1 on 2017/11/22 14:29
After the most recent update, not only is the character selection screen in a strange position, but also the jump button doesn't work properly. Sonic will only jump one every second while moving, and although the speed will increase when standing still (ironic, isn't it?) he still doesn't jump right after landing back on the ground. The biggest problem, though, is the fact that the spindash doesn't work at all. I've found these bugs within the first few seconds of gameplay, and I hope SEGA fixes it soon, as this is the best version of Sonic 2 in existence.
About Average

I have this game on the original SEGA Genesis and it’s really great. But, the mobile platform doesn’t stack up well to the original Genesis. This is completely ridiculous considering that mobile has so much more power than the Genesis. Anyway, here are three reasons why Sonic 2 on mobile is marginal. 1. Micro-Transactions - Your better off purchasing an original Genesis and a Sonic 2 cartridge than spending money on ALL the micro-transactions. 2. Ads - I know this a pretty common complaint, but seriously after almost every level, there would be an ad waiting for me. 3. Controls - This is probably the worst problem of all, but the controls are just so wonky. It took me a few minutes just to exit an area of the stage. Now, I know some of you are probably saying that I’m just a crappy player. But, no, download this app and prove yourself wrong. Now, I’m a Nintendo guy for life but this game made me want to say something. This game really isn’t that bad, it just has some faults that I thought needed sharing. Thanks for reading!
This is horrible

This game use to be the best. But now.... Utter disappointment. I can't jump. When I tried to press restore purchases when I got the game everything disappeared and then it crashed. Now the game is basically unplayable for me. I want a refund. Go f$-@ yourself Sega. B.I.H Sega you will never be missed. Also you @$$€\^\s make sure Christian whitehead gets this letter Dear Christian whitehead I'm am so sorry for Sega not letting you make a sonic 3 and knuckles. They are jerks for that why do you even trust them. They hire you to be part of Sega. And they won't even let you make a sonic 3 and knuckles mobile port. I think you should just quit Sega and make your own company. Just take this note from a 12 year old who had his dreams ruined by Sega the f$@&ers. Hopefully you will get this note. From Peter hughgill
Best Game ever or one of

I personally think every Sonic game is amazing the only won I want on iOS is Sonic 3 and knuckles but every game by Sega has been made great and thanks to all the workers in service games aka Sega and I’m only 10 I have a Sega Genesis and a iPhone so yay and to every one at Sega you are the heart and soul of Sonic the hedgehog with out you I would have to kill turtles as a plumber thanks to you I play as the classic blue blur and save animals for the evil dr ivor Robotnick I cant wait to see what the future of Sonic holds but it’s in your hands until then gota go fast Ciao -a 10 year old fan
Sonic is back once again !
by Jason12558 on 2017/11/20 18:15
Sonic The Hedgehog is back with a new friend Miles Tails Prower to stop Dr. Robotnik from taking the world with the Death Egg. Just like my Sonic 1 review the remake is awesome Christian Whitehead did it once again for Sonic 2. If there’s one thing I’m glad he fixed is that I can restart the special stages if I mess up and I can actually see what’s ahead in the curves weather it’s bombs or rings that’ll help me collect all the 7 chaos emeralds which i did no problem with. I just hope that there would be a remake of Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles or maybe Sonic Mania.
A great game, but there’s a glitch.
by PopFart95 on 2018/04/01 21:57
So, I was playing through Mystic Cave Zone Act 2 as Tails, and I found my way down into the Hidden Palace Zone (nice little secret level) but when I missed a few Rings at the start, and I went back to get them, I somehow managed to clip through the rock to the left. From there I was stuck, until I went into the Pause menu and restarted. Just letting you know, Sega (Also, I absolutely LOVE Sonic Forces. And Infinite is BY FAR MY FAVORITE CHARACTER EVER!!! That’s because he looks amazing). Sincerely, A Fan/Glitch Hunter
Almost perfect

This port adds everything that a classic Sonic fan would want out of Sonic 2, even one of the zones that was scrapped from the original game has been restored just for this. You even unlock a certain red character to play as if you're able to overcome the hellish challenge known as the Death Egg Robot. The only thing I find that's holding this port back is it's touch controls. Platformers don't do well with touch control as you need some sort of tactile feedback to really conquer the controls, but I guess it can't be helped. As a crazy classic fanboy, I give this a 9.7/10
Very good
by x90gcz on 2018/12/11 15:36
This is very well made. The touch control actually works and is very responsive. The extra features are nice. The game runs better than expected. It is very good. Two things I wish could be done though are adding the homing attack in as a feature you can enable or disable as this game is absolutely amazing with it (there is a hack made like this although it isn’t as smooth to control), and I also would like to see a remastered sonic the hedgehog 3. Overall though no major complaints to the game.
To many advertisements Broke the game.
by Gio Kar on 2018/12/23 01:58
I was getting so many advertisements, that after the first battle with Dr. Robotnik, the game glitched and forced everything to be on the bottom of the screen and the top half of the screen was black. I couldn’t see what I was doing in the stage because everything was so flattened and distorted bottom half of the screen. It just goes to show that instead of trying to fix the game by spending some money, you as a company would rather insert an advertisement after every selection you make on the menu screens and have the game break and screw up for users and customers of your product. That’s very hypocritical and lazy of a “Respectable” video game company.
The fastest high rated made!

Sonic is back, and better than ever! With new sidekick tails, you have a cute little guy helping. My only complaint is that there isn't 2 player in story mode. And for the people who want sonic 3 and Knuckles on the App Store, face it. Sega would need to pay something to Michael Jaxon and as he is, well you know, Sega Can't make it. If this isn't the case Sega, then give sonic 3 and Knuckles a soundtrack switch thing for the original and remake. So if they can't, respect that but if they can, have it released.
