SEGA’s Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Spins Onto Google Play, Costs $2.99

I grew up playing the original Sonic the Hedgehog game on my older brother’s SEGA Genesis 16-bit, and with SEGA re-releasing all of these great titles like Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Android, I feel like a kid again. Being completely optimized for mobile devices (no janky ports here), the gameplay is smooth and old school Sonic has never looked so good. On top of excellent feeling controls, SEGA also added in a secret bonus level for anyone who likes investigating through worlds a bit. 

If you played this game, you will remember that Sonic changed quite a bit with this title. New mini games were introduced, as well as Sonic’s little buddy, Tails. SEGA threw in Tails as well as Knuckles on the first Sonic game for Android, and they did the same thing for this title as well. I always thought Knuckles was such a bada$$.

The game costs $2.99 on Google Play, a price that is completely worth every penny for mobile gamers.

    Should be noted that this also includes a level that was tossed and never made the cut into the original version.
    The Level is called Hidden Palace Zone.

    As soon as I saw the title, the Emerald Zone stage music popped in my head and won’t leave. Now I’m totally being unproductive at work. 😛

    Thanks a lot, Tim. lol

    Well…there goes $2.99 from that $50 I got from Samsung a month or so ago. Well worth it!
