Sonic The Hedgehog Classic Review

When we were a preschooler we first heard about sonic the hedgehog and we first played it our dad played it before we first played it in 2022 that was few years ago in 1990 our dad and our mom were teenagers they never played it in 1990 in 1990 our parents only played super Mario wold.

We finished the game with all the characters and chaos emeralds and we have to say that it is the best game on our phone!!

Can you make a Sonic Mega Collection remake? Thank you.

We loved this game! Our son liked it to. It had a special stage builder for building your own bonus stage and had super sonic.

The boss is tough, but its really fun! In total, it was 28 attempts! In one run, it said 9 rings when we had ten! Keep up the good work!

How do you even become super sonic we have all the chaos emeralds soooo what do we do?

We love this game and all but our request would be that it would be so nice if you could make it a bit easier to get the big ring at the end of the game, the one that sends you to the maze. Thank you and thats all.

We wouldve give it a 5 star but we cant open the game so make sure the game still has the file for our computer thats why we didnt play it in a long time sincerely, Benjamin.


Im not lieing and Im serious. First, our controller dint work at level two and made us stop this game and made us hate this game a lot (I dont thing lot of people dint have that problem doe.)Next, why so much ads? Thats probably one of the reasons people put 1or2 stars like us. Then, why internet? That only made us do this game like a minute (even doe we stopped at level two.)Now Im going to tell our opinion. In our opinion we want to work with other people so we could finish our level better and probably not but maybe fix our controller. We mean Im a kid but we still want to help. Please fix the bugs and do our opinion. And Im telling you to!!!

This game used to be fun but now it is riddled with ads.


This needs tails idc if tails was invented in the second sonic game at least addd tails to this one!!!!!!!!!

You RUINED a classic game you cant have any fun it is ridiculous how many ads are in it Im not going to pay to have fun in a FREE game its supposed to be FREE and its not worst game ever you guys ruined it thanks a lot.

Okay let us tell this is pretty fun but way too many ads and one rage after another but nonetheless its amazing and keep making epic things like this Sega!

We love this game we love it we just want to play it all our life and we will.

This game is hard but we love challenges we played this when we were very little (aka) 5 years old sometimes we got really stressed out but we kept going ok so you that we like it so bye.

We enjoy this game very much but we have just one complaint, its how you only start out with one life on the free version then you have to watch an ad to continue, we feel as if this alters the original game to much & not in a good way, However everything else about the game is good.

We are at spring yard zone act 3 and cant beat it because we always get to the end and die so we have to go to the BEGINNING! Please make the checkpoints more useful.

It drained our game to one life>::::::::::::::(

We got past the negatives with the debug mode. Look it up on google!

The one thing you need to add is sonic 3 on the mobile tablet and phone because we cant play it on okay tablet no complaints for any of your games.

In ace attorney Sonic says that Eggman committed arson.

So in labyrinth zone we got a black screen at the start it was annoying to us so please fix It (same for ads)

PLEASE!!!!! We need you to stop making Sonic games with Silver and Blaze in them. When we are older we will join you to make a Silver the hedgehog spin off game. Dont mention them even. (You can in the comics) Dont remove anything important, okay. Dont remove the chaos emeralds, dont remove time travel, dont kill off any characters permanently, and most importantly, DO NOT STOP MAKING SONIC GAMES UNTIL we JOIN YOU. It might take us 10 years, 20 years, or more, but dont stop making Sonic games. And dont make the Silver game without us. Please!

As you can see we dont know what to do anymore we loved this game we played it until we were 9 years old now am 12 but heres the reason when we were playing got bored so we got on YouTube and we saw SONIC. EXE this scared us so much because we had nightmares ALOT TO we saw lots of things at night like shadows but no sonic but like figures at the door and that was the last time we played sonic:( THIS IS ALL REAL.

This game came out in the year 1991.

We like every thing retro we really like this game.

This game is great if you are a sonic fan but it has adds that are annoying but sonic 1 free is still good and our first playing sonic and its great.

We love this game and especially the time attack mode, but ads in the middle of that??!! You have to have split second precision to get a good time and the ads kinda interrupt that. So pls get rid of the ads mid-game.

LABRYINTH ZONE ACT THREE IS LITERALLY JAIL THE BOSS IS SO HARD ON TABLET also about us Im just nine and Im Muslim also Im boy.

We bought the version to remove ads because they were just too much to enjoy the game. But, the ads only disappear for a short while and they come back. Fix it! We’ve reported this twice along with all our troubleshooting. If we dont hear something soon, a refund is our next go. Dont be a rip off.

Its not the best you have to watch ads and its a little hard to control, but if it didnt have those things, it would be a lot more fun and this is a old classic game and its just a ehhhh and our father love this game so we tried it out and its okay.

Please remove mid-level ads! It disrupts the gameplay and cost us emeralds!

As much as we a Sonic fan, the game just had to much adds.

We purchased it to stop the ads. We still have to watch ads to continue. They also used to start you with three lives. Now you only have one and when you die you have to watch an ad. It was not this way when we downloaded it. Very disappointed.

Bought it so we didnt have to have ads, got ads. Sound stopped working also. Refund requested.

Nobody likes too much adds and at least make it internet free.

This new update ruined the game!! Theres so many ads now that its just impossible to play. If you die, it asks you if you want to watch an ad to continue, and sometimes you just get ads for no reason. We cant even play the game anymore because of this. DONT DOWNLOAD UNLESS YOU WANT ADS AFTER EVERYTHING YOU DO!!!!

Every action results in advertisement. Not worth its even taking up space on the phone.

We were ok with the ads until we got interrupted mid level for an ad. The price for ad free is not high but there should be an ad free trial period. Even as low as 30 minutes given the price of the purchase, that would be sufficient to determine if it would be worth it to the individual. One star rating for such short intervals between ads and the interruptions during levels instead of just in between.

We LOVE sonic but the ads are so long and act 3 is impossible! TRASH! P.S Im a MARIO fan.
