Sonic 4 for the iPhone brings back that classic game play
Old school console gamers will be happy to know that Sonic the Hedgehog 4 is coming to the iPhone as it brings along some classic style game play last seen on the Sega Genesis console. Instead of some kind of 3D looking game for Sonic 4, the game previewed during E3 shows off the old school style game that made Sega quite popular back in the day. Pegged with a “late 2010” release, Sega looks to be utilizing the iPhone's hardware for its control schemes. Gamers will have the option to use a Sega Genesis like on-screen controller to navigate Sonic through each level or simply use tilt controls to move him in a specific direction. Graphics-wise, the game looks pretty decent and fast – which is obviously one of Sonic's many unique features. When comparing it to some of Sonic's more recent and updated looking games, this throwback could definitely prove to be a hit on the iPhone.
