Via our broniks at Sonic Retro comes news that Taxman and Stealth’s remastering of Sonic the Hedgehog is releasing to iOS today and tomorrow! While some fans have bemoaned the fact that its the same game we’ve seen released again and again, Sonic the Hedgehog remastered has more than enough goodies to warrant a purchase. The game offers up Time Attack modes, remastered music, spin dash feature, slightly updated boss patterns, smoother motion in the Special Stages, and… unlockable characters! We’ll give you a hint as to who they are: one is red and the other is orange. Given Taxman’s work on Sonic CD, there are surely more surprises to be had, but we won’t know of them until the game arrives. Owners of the original Sonic the Hedgehog iOS App will receive the game as a free update. Android owners take note, according to Taxman on the Sonic Retro Forums: “Thursday 16th PST for Android, US & Canada so you’ll have to wait a bit longer sorry.”
After the break, sweet screens of the game and the cool new menus.

Was really suprised when I saw this update this morning. Knuckles in Sonic 1, remastered crisper visuals & sound, bug fixes (Some I don’t like – such as you cant hit the first boss until he is in the middles with his ‘large ball’ out). New menu system. I would have happily paid another 69p for this.
Pleasantly surprised that this comes as a free update! First impressions are good. Plays like the Sonic Jam version with the added spindash.
