Sonic CD

Sonic CD iPhone Game

Originally reviewed by 07 December 2011

Until Sonic CD, Sega's iOS ports of its retro licenses had been travesties. Poor performance and ropey controls demonstrated that Sega either didn't know how to do justice to its classic titles, or simply didn't care.

The reason why Sonic CD is so different? Because Sega didn't really make it. This version is one that Sega co-opted from a chap called Christian Whitehead, and amounts to a complete re-writing of the Sonic CD code to ensure it runs at a rock-solid 60fps and offers controls that work properly with the touchscreen. The result is a fantastic platformer.
