Nostalgia Lane

Playing this on mobile is super nostalgic! 10/10!

Nostalgic Reader, (user) You are super wrong.

The 1 star things looks wrong. Nostalgic Reader, Have you heard of sarcasm & Green hills? (Sonic 2 8 bit, that trashy one) I proceed to give your review a 0/10. This game is game, if you hate it, I HATE TO SEE WHAT YOU THINK OF SONIC BLAST. Sonic 1, 2, CD and the failed sonic 3 port seems worse, what’s worse? Marble Garden, Flying Battery and Death Egg.

Bad controls compared to the original release why even bother to make it for mobile

Why am I seeing ads after having purchased the game?

I purchased this game long ago and now I’m seeing ads? Despicable. Apparently there are supposed to be ads between levels if you haven’t paid. I don’t see those, but I still have to click an “x” to close an ad for a SEGA game each and every time I start the game. This is incredibly misleading and a really dishonest practice.In addition to that, I find d-pad too far to the left edge of the screen. A simple option to move it is virtually expected in a game like this. There seem to be virtually no control options, which is really lazy considering there are literally two things to touch on the screen.

Good but not Great

Man, I love this game. I’ve beaten it and gotten half of the secrets (D.A. Garden, Tails, and Visual Mode) and I LOVE IT! A few things though... Wacky Workbench is garbage. I’ve only gotten the good future for it ONCE. And Metallic Madness, I WANTED to get a good future, but I couldn’t even go to the past! Also, just Tidal Tempest. Anyways, I love the secrets, and the game itself! Still, 4 stars because of those things :)
