Okay, yeah, I rocked a Sega Genesis back in the day, which is perhaps not coincidentally the last platform where Sonic the Hedgehog was really done well. (Sorry, it needed to be said).

Can the iPhone version [$5.99 - iTunes link] make me eat those words, or at least spin me around on them faster than Yoda in a lightsaber duel? Let's see, Sega does say it'll make me relive my fondest memories from the Genesis era...

  • Blast through Seven Zones including classics as Green Hill Zone and Labyrinth Zone, as well as the Special Stages in an attempt to collect the Chaos Emeralds!

  • Classic 2-D Sonic experience on the go for the first time on the iPhone and iTouch!

  • Pick-up-and-play accessibility: Play in Full Screen or classic “Arcade” look and play with just the touch of a button.

If you give it a try, let me know what you think!
