Sonic CD

Want to bring a little 16-bit retro gaming action to your Wednesday? Sonic CD, the time-travelling Sega CD platformer first released on Android in 2011, is available for free today through the Amazon Appstore, down from the regular price of $2.99. The game is a faithful recreation of the 1993 original, brought up to date by Christian Whitehead, the developer responsible for recent ports of Sonic 1 and Sonic 2.

Want to grab it for free? You'll need to download it from Amazon before the end of the day.

Sonic CD free on Amazon Appstore today


Did my daily routine; wake up, check free app of the day, download if good, jump to Android Central. The first article I read is this, I think to myself, already did that. Thanks

Use the Website to add it to your app collection while it's free and download it whenever you find an extra 200+ mbs.

I pretty sure that I bought this via the Google Play Store when it was on sale for 99 cents but I'll double check.

Holy balls I haven't played this game since 1999 on PC.
I didn't have a Sega Saturn at the time.

You have to restart your device. I had the same problem with my Note 2 and I did a reboot and boom, now everything works flawlessly.

Am I the only one who could never get into the feel of classic, side-scrolling Sonic games? It might be my Nintendo heritage, but the layout and feel of Sonic games never made sense to me. Just too much stuff scattered, and I could never figure out how to get that perfect flow going that's supposed to be there.

Note: not bashing people who love these games. I know there are plenty of you, and I know this is probably MY issue. Just curious how alone I am.

There was a time that a lot of people said the Sonic Boom main theme from the original American Sega CD version was horrible, but Toot Toot Sonic Warrior is even more devastatingly awful...
