Has anyone been able to get the 2 player match on this to work on Android? I can get it fine to work if I play with a stranger, but if I invite with a friend, it always crashes. I've tried a multitude of different Android devices, but it is the same result. Do both devices need to be running the same version of Android? Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
I figured this out:
-Both players need to have a save file in 1P mode (Otherwise the game will crash in 2P).
-It IS possible for players on different versions of Android to invite each other.
-Invites work better if the players are friends on Google Plus.
-The invite system is very buggy. On many occasions, when selecting 2P the game will skip straight to the online mode where you play against a stranger, so the option to invite a friend is missing. The only solution is to restart the device.
Taxman and Stealth did an awesome job of expanding the 2-player competition mode. Playing in the extra levels really enhances the game, although it's too bad that Hidden Palace isn't available.
Sadly, it's not possible to play as Super Sonic in 2P mode. In the Mega Drive version, this was a great little addition, as Tails could use a teleporter to steal the Super Sonic powers from Sonic. Then Sonic could try and find a teleporter to steal the powers back.
It was like playing ‘Super Sonic Tag’ and it enriched the game greatly.
If these games ever get ported to consoles, it would be nice if Super Sonic could be restored to 2P mode. (Although, it was a bug in the original, so I appreciate why it was left out of the port).
