Sorry, but if it's just a rehash of the genesis version, I'll stick with the one I have for the PC or the one I have on my Palm. If they're going to bring an IP like this to the iPhone, at least make an original adventure out of it.

Altered Beast would be great! That was always a fun game. I also think they should remake Comix Zone.

You know I don't know why sega doesn't do a classics line...It would be even cooler if they just came out with some kind of emulation software that could be an app in and of itself and then download the Sega Games (ala Stanza) to play on the emulator. I know this can be done on J/B Touch/phone but I want a legit version. A mini genesis in my pocket. I would fork over some dough for that.

what's 'IP' mean?


personally, any Sonic The Hedgehog on my Touchwill be a welcome addition for me, original or not. personally i wouldn't know the difference, especially as i'm not JB'd or played on the Genesis version.

There's nothing wrong with the Genesis version. Sega Genesis is where Sonic originated. It's just that I've already played the Genesis version on 3 different platforms (Genesis, PC and Palm), so I'd like something new.

hmmmm, this could be hit or miss, Sonic is awesome, but bad controls can ruin the game. If it is good though, I'd love to see Sonic 2 and 3.

I own the sonic games for SMS and MD, I own sonic on xbla and on my mobile phone and i'll buy it again because I love the blue hedgehog XD

The 2D games at least, most of the 3D sonic games went downhill.

All Sonic 1 needs is jump, run left and right and up and down to look and roll, if they make it control like Bounce On or have tilting to run as an option replaying the classic sonic's will feel fresh and unique.
