    I tried to play it when picking up Skyrim last night. Tablets really can’t do this kind of stuff at all. =\

    I managed to play a bit this week, feels great! Much more like Sonic 2 than Sonic CD. Can’t wait for this one.

    You have to be joking! This is ridiculous and its worse than Sonic 06! And of course I am reffering for the tablets version and the gameplay only!!! This is unplayable and whoever thinks otherwise then what can I say…. I am buying this on PSN anyway! I own all 3 versions on SEGA MEGA CD and think of it as the best Sonic game! ^_^

    The change in the feel of the physics is due to an entire change in game engine. It’s really not a port of Sonic CD so much as it is a port of Taxman’s Retro Engine, but given the sprites and tileset of Sonic CD. I assume that they remade the special stages from scratch.

    There does seem to be little hints of slowdown in this video though, which might be a little concerning for those of you who are considering buying this Gamestop tablet.

  6. The slowdown, according to taxman, is probably due to the tablet having other apps open in the background. When I was at Gamestop I started the tablet up fresh and played the game, and didn’t encounter any slowdown.

    I played on those tablets while I was waiting for the midnight release of Sonic Generations. I’ve never played on a device like that before so I was doing really poorly, but the game itself was running fantastic and it was beautiful as ever.
