Sega has released, as a bit of a surprise, the original Sonic The Hedgehog game onto Google Play this morning. While this is the original game, the visuals have been remastered as well as support for widescreen resolution, sporting a smooth 60 frames-per-second or at least that is what Sega is claiming.
On top of all the original content that the game used to come with, this version of Sonic The Hedgehog will allow players to eventually unlock both Tails and Knuckles as playable characters. Aside from the remastered visuals, Sega has also gone ahead and remastered the original soundtrack as well.
Sonic The Hedgehog also comes with new leaderboards, achievements, and an all-new Time Attack mode in case you finish the actual game itself pretty quickly. If you're a fan of the blue hedgehog and his games, you'll probably want to pick this new game up. Sonic The Hedgehog is available for $2.99 off of Google Play.
