Over a year after the release of the first episode, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II has finally hit the App Store, adding an all-new chapter to the ongoing Sonic saga. Even better, the game has brought Tails back into the story!
From the official description:
Following the events of Episode I, Metal Sonic has returned to form a formidable alliance with Dr. Eggman! To face this new evil, Sonic will have to call upon an old friend to help him save the day! Now joined by Tails, race across four brand new Zones and take down fearsome new badniks with deadly combination moves in order to put an end to this dastardly duo’s plans!
Sega hasn’t forgotten about their loyal fans who have already purchased Episode 1 – those who have both Episode I and Episode II installed on their iOS devices will gain access to some awesome bonus content – including 4 extra levels that follow the story of Metal Sonic, and how he returned after being defeated in Sonic CD!
The game also features a brand new engine. Having played Episode I, I can say that the gameplay mechanics are vastly improved as a result – much smoother and more natural gameplay, background movement, and physics!
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II is available immediately for $6.99, and is a universal app that works on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch ($6.99, App Store link). Enough of my chatter – check out the trailer below for a glimpse of the action, and go download the game!
