Nintendo may have the plumbing power of Mario on its side, but Sega has the cooler and faster Sonic the Hedgehog, one of the world’s most celebrated game icons.
Making the jump from console to the Android platform seemed to take forever, but when Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I finally made it to Android, the game was well worth the wait. It’s no wonder why the sequel of the game is so eagerly anticipated by Android gamers worldwide. Now, blue hedgehog fans, you’re just in luck, as Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II was launched today exclusively for Tegra-3 powered Android devices.
The Tegra 3 version of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II provides a gaming experience that is incredibly similar to that of the PS3 and Xbox versions. With blazing fast frame rates, Episode II is a dramatic improvement over the predecessor, and the game is, hands down, one of the most technically advanced mobile games ever made. The Tegra 3 version has better quality textures, improved lighting and glow effects, and has on-screen objects that aren’t available on other mobile versions of the game.
Check the difference for yourself:
Probably the best device to enjoy the antics of Sonic and his friends is a sleek tablet like the Asus Transformer Pad 300.
