Sonic CD hasn't been available to download on mobile devices for quite a while now (was taken down for "maintenance" ages ago).

Well, it's now available again. As expected, Sonic CD has joined the SEGA Forever line-up:

From what I've played of it so far; the good news is that the controls still seem fine (unlike in the Sonic 2 SEGA Forever version). However, the sound isn't quite right. There's a weird occasional static noise (difficult to describe).

Edit: I did a quick playthrough of Palmtree Panic from the new version:

The sound definitely feels off to me. Sound effects are way louder than normal and there's a static noise sometimes when they play.

The intro movie doesn't play when you start a new file anymore either, instead being moved to a menu option. Also, Desert Dazzle files are in the RSDK file, but I doubt this was intentional.

I'm still mad I was never able to buy the original taxman Android version since it wasn't on the store for years. And I don't want this crappy Sega Forever version either, so I guess I still won't have an Android version.

Facing the same thing that I did with Sonic 2 Forever in that trying to restore purchases just leads to "Please wait" on iOS then "Time-out", so I'm just going to hold off for a while until I randomly remember to try again weeks from now.

Good grief, why is SEGA Forever such a steaming turd?

What was with all those ads? Is this game free now?

That's the Sega Forever model. I think there's usually an option to pay to remove ads though.

Yeah, there's an option as soon as you enter the main menu, asking if you would like to pay $2 for ad-free, or play the version with ads. That's $1 cheaper than before, to beat it all, so I don't mind this. Happily went for the paid option myself. :)/>

I'm still keeping my personal APK backups of the original Sonic 1 and 2 remasters, though, in case the SEGA Forever versions break some things. Still on Android Lollipop, so I'm not sure how much longer it will be before OS compatibility with newer apps in general goes downhill; it's happening to KitKat already.

EDIT: Yeah, no, I'm refunding this. The game somehow forgot my purchase and it refuses to restore it. I don't care if this is Sonic CD, I'd rather it not exist on the Play Store at all than deal with advertisements.

I've noticed that too. It's fortunately minor for me, but I would be happy if a future update fixed it. Right now, I'm relieved the game is back on the Google Play Store at all. I passed up buying the original version, before it went down, and regretted it.

Hey folks, with the latest SEGA Forever release being Sonic CD (which has brought the Android release back), I'm keen to hear any suggestions you have for bugs you'd like us to fix. I'll be dropping some premium unlock codes in another thread over the next few days too!

Thanks in advance!

There's a thread over here that people are talking about the release in: https://forums.sonic...showtopic=37798

A little redundant, but my first impressions: Certain sound effects are garbled/static-y, and on my end, the game wouldn't restore a 1-hour-old purchase. Is authentication tied to Google Play Games? (Which I don't have installed.)

Thanks for the heads up Luke; completely missed that. There are some codes for the ad-free unlock in that thread now, and we welcome any and all reports of issues (please include your device and firmware details too)!

Cheers!

Hi Luke, may we have the order number from your receipt (should start with "GPA") as well as the e-mail address you have linked to your Google Play account please? That way we can activate it on our end. Please send this to [email protected], as it's safest not to share all those details here. Apologies for the inconvenience!

Google Play refunded it within minutes, a lot faster than I expected, so I don't have any valid details for the moment. Once I'm sure my Paypal balance has updated, I'll repurchase it and see if I still have the same problem. If it does, I'll give the provided email address a try.

It's nice to know there is something that can be done in cases like this, I appreciate your help. :) Sorry for being hasty; going to keep that in mind for future Play Store purchases in general.

Not to worry - you can grab one of the codes above instead if they're still available!
