Home console owners may have to wait a few days until Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 is released on their platform of choice but it’s already out now for Apple’s iDevices. With a premium price of £5.99 ($9.99,) Sonic 4 comes with two exclusive levels that are purposely made for the accelerometer. But the main draw of the game is surely its homage to the classic Sonic titles with even the addition of the Special Stages, found in the early games.
I’m quite torn with this one though. I really like the idea of revisiting the era when Sonic was at his best but am worried that it’ll feel like treading old ground – albeit very fast. From the early reviews, Sonic 4 is receiving a great deal of praise so maybe I’m concerns are superfluous.
