    Lets be real, with the buttons on the screen it can be difficult to play, in comparison to real buttons and joysticks. Although the difficulty is not evenly distributed through out the game like i'd like, the zones are very fun. One bad glitch though.If you accidentally hit eggman one more time after he starts exploding, he resets and it takes 200 or so hits more to kill him. That cost me many lives. Expand

    While this is a solid port, I can say that this is the weakest of the 16 bit games. Ignoring the lack of the spindash (considering it wasn't even in the series until a year later), the speed advertised wasn't there except in a few parts of Green Hill, spike glitches, and the frustrating Marble Zone is really hard to get through without a continue, especially with the touch controls. However, the level design is nice, the music is great, the gameplay is solid, and overall it's a great platformer. Not the best 2D Sonic game, but it's a great platformer. Expand
