Sonic 4 Episode 1 finally dashes its way to Android, priced at $3.99
Well, there’s no need to wait any longer because the game has finally made a mad dash for the Android Market, where it’s currently available for download at $3.99. For the price, Android users will have the opportunity of experiencing all of the classic Sonic the Hedgehog game play made popular during the 1990s. Shockingly, some people have been waiting for over 16 years for this fitting sequel to finally become a reality – and the wait couldn’t have been any better!
Thankfully, this version for Android is seeing 2 exclusive levels that were built specifically for smartphones using an accelerometer. Honestly, it all comes down to its $3.99 pricing, which is a steal considering if this game was in cartridge form, like previous titles for the Sega Genesis, it could’ve easily fetched more money – so yeah, $4 out of your pocket isn’t anything at all.

yea, usually its several months, if ever, lot of apple fanboy devs out there. Most game companies publish for all major handheld and home consoles, but when it comes to phones most major companies are exclusive to iphone, even though they are non exclusive to the consoles because they make more money by being platform agnostic. They are just cheating themselves out of money and millions of ptential consumers when they go iphone exclusive.
