Childhood memories revisited: Sonic the Hedgehog on iPhone

I was never much of a gamer as a kid. For one thing we didn’t have the money for games consoles, for another I had a ZX Spectrum and enjoyed trying to program simple maths problems, graphics and music too much to be content with simply consuming other people’s work.

That said, I spent many a happy hour at friends’ houses playing Sonic or Mario games on various consoles. When I saw that Sega have promised to donate profits on some games downloaded from the iTunes App Store to relief works in Japan, I couldn’t resist having another go at Sonic The Hedgehog. The memories are awesome, and I’m pleased to report that the gaming experience is surprisingly faithful to the original.
