5.0 out of 5 stars Blast Processing at its roots March 16, 2011
Sonic has hit a major speed bump the past half-decade, but before that half-decade, he was on fire! Starting in 1991, the blue blur's first outing was one of his best. As Sonic, you go through 6 zones in high-speed action while tracking down a fat evildoer named Dr. Robotnik! The controls were pretty simple: You use a D-pad and a button to play. The graphics were full of 16-bit awesomism. The sounds and music were top-notch. The main challenge in the game, however, is not the difficulty in the zones as you progress through them, but instead, they are the Special Stages, in which you must finish an act with over 50 rings to access them. Then, in the Special Stages, you must guide yourself carefully to the Chaos Emeralds.

Sonic's first hit was a blast. If you like Sonic games, especially the retro Sonics, give this a shot if you haven't played this one before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still cool June 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
Still a good game, got it for kids. 6 year old can actually play it, unlike some of the newer games. I don't know what that says about me, I remember playing it as an adult. But it is a classic and those old games are a step up from the new simple games the kids play online to me. Worth the price for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works on Windows 7...with a little effort December 28, 2011
By Mary
Verified Purchase
For $2 this is a great game!! It's 20 years old, but my 8 year old loves it.

To get it to work on Windows 7 (we have an Acer Aspire One netbook) I needed to map the keys to the keyboard. It's one of the options. Before doing that the game would be in demo mode the whole time. After doing that it works great!!

Enjoy!!
