If you were a gamer back in the early 90s and had a Sega Genesis, you undoubtedly played Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic was one of the most popular games on the game console and remains popular to this day. In fact, there are a wide variety of new and updated Sonic games available on various mobile devices, including android smartphones and tablets.

Sega has announced that it has now released the original Sonic The Hedgehog for Android gamers on the Google Play store. The game has been updated to support wide screens and 60 frame per second frame rates on Android devices. Sega has also remastered the soundtrack to revamp the classic game for modern gamers on mobile devices.

The Android game brings with it leader boards and achievements to encourage competitive game play amongst friends. The game also features a Time Attack mode to challenge gamers familiar with the title to complete levels as quickly as possible.

If you’re familiar with Sonic, you probably remember his sidekicks Tails and Knuckles. Both of those characters are available as playable avatars. However, you do have to unlock them using Sonic to begin with.

Sonic the Hedgehog will be available for Android gamers to download now for $2.99. However, the game hasn’t turned up on the Google Play store at the time of writing so keep an eye out if you’re interested.
