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.

Easy to play using the keyboard. Brings back a lot of memories of my sega genisis game console from several years ago.

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.

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!!

The configuration options do not save/work at all on Windows 8. Compatibility mode doesn't work either. It is probably something dead simple but there is no way to find out the problem. Without the configuration options, it is impossible to set your controller or screen settings.

Works good & looks just like it is on the Genesis. Had me playing all the time. I am currently looking for a version for Windows 8, this one works with Windows 7

We had a sega game system some years ago & don't have it anymore. I loved & missed sonic the hedgehog. I am very pleased to find a downloadable pc version.
