    Love the game from start to finish/Great transfer

    This game is really addictive to play until I beat just recently, all in a couple days. The game is a great part of my past, as it was my first look into sonic the hedgehog, back in 2013. My only problem is sometimes the game can have some internet connection problems and be a little slow at times, but nothing really to complain about. Really good transfer in my part, from the gameplay to music, it’s not too bad. The only thing I have to confess about is, why is episode 2 free on the App Store and episode 1 is 2.99? Like it make no sense to give the second game free, but the first not. Because if people play this first and play the original second, it can mess up the entire experience and vibe, so at least make the first free, to be just as popular as the second, if you can. Overall, great game, just one marketing flaw and it’s perfect. So thanks sega!!! Ps: Still waiting for Sonic 3 and Knuckles and Sonic Spinball Remastered for the complete sonic experience!!!

  • By rileydal00-


    I know you guys are working hard on every single game but i hate it how they cancled the update for hyper sonic and knuckles for this game. Knuckles was supposed to be in the game but then sega cancled the update so i kinda do not like it that much but it was fun i got all the caos emeralds and ya. I love suprizing metal sonic with super sonic. It’s pretty fun to do. But i also hate about when they cancled the update for hyper sonic and such new levels. I wish that In the next update or game whatever, i really want to see hyper sonic in it. I cant afford the sonic 3 game and i also see why that they canceled the update but i really wanna see hyper sonic and knuckles in the next update so sega that’s why my reasons to give to you why you should give sonic 4 update. I’ve never seen hyper sonic but i loved watching hyper sonic games whatever and such but i never seen him in game. So i think you should add him in The next update. Please sega

    This is not as bad as people say it is

    OK episode one was pretty trash I got to say it had bad controls it just felt so off modern sonic instead of classic seriously is not very fun it’s just rip offs of all levels making them even worse but episode two is much better I really like the level design the concepts tails in the game just looks so much better than episode one with generations coming in between because for Christmas in 2020 in a couple days I will get an Xbox one X with sonic generations and Sonic unleashed those games look pretty amazing to me as well as this one I got to say I like the level design characters tails it’s just I got to say it’s insanely better than everything from episode one is an insane improvement in the final boss I can just make it look so deep and I seriously I am very happy to say I think this is a very nice 2d sonic game

    LOVE this over episode 1! Only problems are minor

    I have heard a lot of bad talk about Sonic 4 in my life. Personally, this game was my favorite over episode 1 but that game was a WHOLE LOT SLOWER WITH LOADING SCREENS!! These screens are slower than the originals but only slightly. My favorite feature is the ability to restart the special stages(thank GOD for that!👍😅). The ones in Sonic 2 were harder, and in episode 1, they are PURE INSANITY! My only other complaint is that some graphical touches were downgraded, just like in ep1 with the 3D touches and two really cool levels from the original that got an uncalled for remastering, especially Road of Cards(Z2 A2). Otherwise, for ep2, keep up the great work, SEGA!

    Not as bad as people make it out to be

    Okay, I'm going to start this off as bluntly as possible. A while ago, I thought that episode 1 was actually a good game. After looking at the game again though, I take that statement back. As for episode 2 though, it is INFINITELY better than episode 1. Everything got an upgrade, from Sonic's running animation and physics, to bringing back Tails and Metal Sonic. (also, thank god they fixed the physics.) I really enjoyed using Sonic & Tails' Co-Op moves. They all had a little bit of nuance to them, but once you got the hang of it, the levels are a blast to just speed through. Also, there’s a singular Red Ring to find in every level, alongside the 7 Chaos Emeralds. They are really fun to find, despite not getting anything for finding them all. The only things keeping this from 5 stars are the very jank parts of the game. Sometimes, I get hit by an obstacle or enemy that I clearly shouldn’t have been hit by. Also, there’s Episode Metal, which is supposedly unlocked when you own both episodes 1 & 2. I played episode 1 on my cousin's phone. I don’t own episode 1, yet I've played through the entirety of episode metal. Still a solid game though.

    Good game but controls need fixing

    Sonic 4 episode 2 is free with ads which is good but there’s so many ads but my biggest complaint is the control. Sometimes they do things on there own I wasn’t even touching the screen and it would go on its own. When I want it to go left they go right. Maybe my fingers are to big but then they should fix that. In Sonic 1 you could make the size bigger and smaller for the controls and that’s what they should do so people with bigger or smaller hands don’t get punished This is my second rating after the latest update. The sonic and tails going on there own is fixed but I feel a delay in control every time I jump with sonic and moving left and right other then that every things fixed

    I don’t like this game

    I don’t know why but it gives me the feeling that I get from the super frustrating levels of the other classic sonic games. The first level was ok the second one though, it was very annoying. I haven’t finished the game yet at the time of this review but the first 4 levels are just so annoying. I thing I have died one or twice from having no rings and running into a spike or something, but the other 20 times (not joking) were drowning, being crushed or a bottomless death pit. I might update this review once I finish the game. It has many flaws, but overall if your board and want a challenge you might want to consider getting this, the adds aren’t super annoying (unlike sonic 2) so yeah...

    I like it but it’s a little broken

    I like the game don’t get me wrong I enjoy it but don’t even get me started on the controls when you run forward for like a minute you’re stuck like that unless you find a way to fix it and tails and really broken half of the time he dosent go up and the controls were acting as if an touched them like the jump button it spammed jump when I wasent doing that and the way you move again makes it impossible to pass zone 2 because you won’t be able to even get a bubble to breath and the second thing about tails in zone 2 there’s a part where you need tails under water but he dosent go to the ground as fast as you would think overall it’s pretty good

    This game is really good!

    I’ve heard lots of criticism for Episode 1, so I didn’t think Episode 2 would be any good. Oh boy, was I wrong. This game is actually really good! The graphics are beautiful for a mobile port, the music is amazing, the game controls alright, and it’s actually pretty difficult. I find myself tying to beat Sky Fortress Zone. It’s pretty hard. Although this game is good, there are some problems with it, but so do all games. The first problem I have with this game are the duo attacks. They control pretty bad, and they’re somewhat difficult to handle. It was a nightmare using these in Oil Desert Zone. I haven’t beaten this game yet, so I can’t really give any more criticism to this game. This game is great, SEGA! Keep up the good work!

  • By Inkplaysxt

    Game is kinda not playable

    So I first got this hame when I was around 7 or 8. I enjoyed it a lot especially with there being no ads. Eventually I finished the game, stopped playing it as I started losing interest in sonic and eventually deleted it. I then went on to switching devices when I got my first phone and I decided to download Sonic 4 again to play it after a long time. When I get into the app, it gets infested with ads everywhere. When I open the game, there’s an ad, when I unpause the game there’s an ad. And I know what you’re thinking, why don’t you just click out of the ads? I would, if the exit button actually worked. Every time an ad pops up, I simply wait the amount of seconds there are before I can click out of the ad. But when I do, it acts as if I’m not pressing exit (not on the video ads but on the picture ads). So in order for me to get out of the ad, I always have to press get and then exit out of the App Store in order to keep playing, but when I do all the sound goes away and the only way to fix it is if you press pause and go through all that stuff again. I couldn’t even get passed the first level because of this. To make this long review short, please fix this and don’t update it to have more ads cause no one wanted that.

    Decent game ruined by controls

    This is actually a fun game. After hearing so many bad things of 4, I got a little worry-some, although it's actually pretty good. The homing attack makes things a little too easy; but it's fine. The problem is, though, the controls. The control stick which you use to control Sonic and Tails is pretty bad, and, despite looking the same, is nothing like the ones used in the Christian Whitehead remakes of the originals. First off, it's too small. Not only is it hard to move it around because of this; but your hand is always falling off the stick. My suggestion is to add a ability where you can make the stick larger, or smaller, like in the remakes. Something else, is performance. There is something wrong with the performance; I don't know if it's frame rate or something else. When standing still, everything likes decently fine. Also, I'm on an Ipad Mini 4, one of the newer devices, so I'm pretty sure it's not on my end. In the end, a decent game almost completely ruined by controls.

    List of new things to add in a pontential update for this game.

    This game is much better then Episode 1 while Episode 1 was pretty bad it wasn’t fun. The physics were pretty bad Sonic feels like he has no weight to it, he has no momentum to his gameplay when rolling he doesn’t get faster. His jumps feels very light. The Spin-Dash doesn’t work well it stops without carrying any momentum and when preforming it on an edge it stops. All of these were fixed in Episode 2 and it feels much better but the rolling physics still doesn’t feel great sometimes yes but other times no. It still needs work and there many things that could make this game better. 1. Make the gameplay physics to be exaclty like how it was in Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. 2. Have there be an extra button to switch as Tails 3. Have a button to turn off the Super form from Super Sonic. 4. Add Episode 1 levels into Episode 2 and move Episode Metal in a new file under continue. 5. Bring back the Elemental Shields from Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles and another button to use their abilities. 6. Make the gameplay physics for Sonic, Tails and Super Sonic to be exaclty like how it was in Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. 7. Redo the Episode 1 levels with new looks and remove the gimmicks This is a lot but it may be worth it to make the game better in my opinion and there’s still more things to add on but I think it’s better to make it a shorter list.

    The app was perfect until...

    So when I first bought this game on my iPad and IPod Touch, the game was perfect. There were no bugs or glitches I could find. Now I have some bugs and glitches that need to be fixed ASAP. Let me address some of the issues. 1. Make it so people who have already bought the game doesn’t need to buy it again. This is not a glitch or a bug but this is something that needs to be fixed. Seeing ads every time you beat a level or retrying gets annoying. 2. I’m not sure if it’s my Ipad’s fault but for some reason I can’t use the dash in the special stages. This makes getting the final Chaos Emearld harder than it needs to be. 3. Again I’m not sure if this is my IPad’s fault but I can’t turn into Super Sonic even after all I got all of the Chaos Emearlds. I tapped on the Super Sonic icon multiple times but Sonic won’t turn into Super Sonic. This makes getting the Chaos Emearlds feel worthless. 4. The controls seem to be worse than it was when I bought this several years ago. For example when I hold down Sonic won’t go down unless I put my finger way down. Also the Tails swimming controls seem to not work properly. If SEGA can fix these issues then I will make this 5 stars. Then again the app has not been updated since 8 months ago as of this review so I doubt SEGA will get this.

    There is a lot of bad things about this game so I will just list it all. First why is there a homing attack in a 2D sonic game? Why is tails only in ep 2 if this is supposed to be a sequel to the original trilogy? Heck, why is this even separated into episodes? The touchscreen controls are AWFUL, half of the time when I want to press the jump button, I press the tails button or whatever it’s called, and vice versa. Why are there 4 zones now, in sonic 2 and 3 and knuckles, each act had 2 zones instead of sonic 1’s 3 acts to keep the zones from getting stale. Also why is there an act specifically for a zone’s boss, why not just put the boss in act 3? White Castle zone(or something like that) act 3 lasts for WAY to long, it feels like it never ends. Why does a SONIC game start with a WATER LEVEL? Why is the game not in a 16 bit style if it’s supposed to be a sequel to the original trilogy? And finally, why do you play as modern sonic and tails instead of the classic ones. So yeah, that’s all the problems I had with sonic 4 episode 2.
