Sonic Episode 4

Sega has been working hard to bring Sonic The Hedgehog games to Android and their latest release is now available in the Android Market. Sonic 4 Episode 1 picks up where the Sonic CD series left off and even includes some exclusive content:

  • 2 Exclusive Levels - Two exclusive levels build specifically for smartphones using the accelerometer.
  • New Moves - All of Sonic's classic moves are available, including the newer Homing Attack which will add a new level of control and excitement.
  • Classic Sonic Stages - Race through 4 unique zones containing 4 acts each as well as 7 special stages.
  • Special Stages Return - A staple of the Genesis-era games, the special stages return allowing fans to collect the 7 Chaos Emeralds and unlock Super Sonic.
  • Revamped Classic Boss Battles - Dr. Eggman returns with new and improved mechas and will go berserk when he accumulates damage.

The previous release Sonic CD, was a great port for Android users and from the looks of it - Sonic 4 Episode 1 will fit that bill as well. It's available right now in the Android Market for $4 -- download link can be found past the break for you all. Once you play through it, you can take satisfaction in knowing Episode 2 isn't that far off.

Sonic 4 Episode 1 now available in the Android Market


Finally, Sonic Team is taking Sonic in the right direction. Between this, Sonic CD, and Sonic Generations, ST is breathing old life back into Sonic. Well, the good old days anyway.

EDIT: Well it seems as though this game doesn't like ICS. It is constantly freezing on start up on my Galaxy Nexus. And now it's too late for a refund. Nice. Anyone else having issues?

this is probably the most excited i've been about android market releases ever. this is awesome! pure nostalgia!!!!!

I seriously hope this doesn't have the same extra content downloading issue where Sonic CD did when it was first released for Android...

SEGA: Y u no make Sonic games compatible with Android tablets?

Really, I don't want to play Sonic CD or Sonic 4 on a tiny 3.2-inch phone screen. I want to play on my 10.1-inch tablet screen.
