Tested,on my ipad pro 9,7": I would say that the controls aren't responsive enough. This kind of game based on fight cannot bear any lag. Even Provenance emulator is doing better (I swear I bought the original game)
Kid Chameleon is much better in this regard. I don't know about Sonic 1 because I won't upgrade.

Mediocre port even then. Golden Axe on the other hand, is excellent on the Genesis...
