    Sonic CD Classic's review

    Published: 2014-03-18, by .

    Sonic CD is the Android version of the well-known Sega game

    • Pure nostalgia
    • Leaderboards
    • Classic graphics and soundtrack
    • Sonic's essence
    • Lite version is too short
    • Screenpad should be enhanced

    "Androidified Sonic"

    Sonic was not dead but waiting his chance to show up in a worthy platform like Android. Twenty years later we've changed our Game Gear for smartphones and tablets, however, Sonic the Hedgehog is still as addictive as we remember it. I'd say, even more addictive.

    In this new version, Sonic will have to finish off Dr. Eggman's by using the power of Little Planet to travel through time and destroy his machines in the past before it becomes too powerful. Environments looks familiar, although that new time-travel feature has boosted playability.

    Gameplay is the same: complete the level as fast as possible while grabbing as many rings and power-ups as you can. Time, rings and power-ups will determine final score. Actually, time really matters: you'll have to complete levels in a minimum time to unlock the final boss.

    This Lite version has only two levels and a final-boss (locked until you beat the record). Graphics are similar to classic Sonic: Sega knows that risky graphics would have made Sonic losing its essence. Soundtracks remains faithful to its origins. Likewise, it features 16:9 widescreen, achievements and leaderboards.

    The only catch of the game: it's a bit weird and sometimes tricky playing it with a screenpad, specially when performing classic Sonic launching. Despite of this, must-have game.
