Sonic Jump brings Sonic the Hedgehog to Android

Sonic Jump
Sonic the Hedgehog is among the more recognizable characters in all of video games. Ranking right up there with Mario and Pacman, With the death of Sega as a console, Sonic began to fade into legend. Remembered only by older gamers who remember what it was like playing on the Genesis. Sonic has made a comeback in a new game for Android called Sonic Jump.

Originally, the game was only released for iOS. Thankfully, Sega came to their senses and brought it to Android as well. It’s available in the Google Play Store for $1.99. As Eurodroid reports, the game is a little generic. Described as a, “non-stop-bouncy-bouncy genre of game”, it appears as Sonic Jump is taking Sonic back to his 2D scrolling roots.

Is Sonic Jump worth buying?

If you’re a fan of Sonic, then yes. In addition to Sonic, the game features two other favorites from the series. That would be Knuckles and Tales. Each character has their own skill set. It’s not a lot different from any other scrolling game. However, for Sonic fans, the nostalgia is well worth the $1.99

If this looks like something you want to check out, you can find it in the Google Play Store here. Has anyone given it a try, yet? Let us know what you think of it.

      Aaand it’s gone… But the new desktop looks nice too, I just wonder why the mobile page has been down for ages and it sometimes pops back and then goes again :(

    I don’t know if I’d say he faded into legend, Sonic games started coming out on almost every other console after Dreamcast died. I loved my Gameboy Advance Sonics.
