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.

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.

This is one of my favorite games to play ever. I really enjoyed the gameplay even though I don't have a controller. I simply use the directional arrows on my keyboard, and the enter key on my numeric pad serves as the "jump" button. I liked the interface of the Sega Genesis Classics program that is used to play the game. I can pause the game and save it from any point in the level. I don't recall being able to save this game at all on the original Genesis. The only thing is that the program does not recede into the background if say I open firefox and start typing a review on Amazon. :) I have to use the minimize button. But I digress.

I highly recommend this game to any Sonic fan old and new. There is no spin dash in this game, but it's still great fun. I was also happy to discover that "Up, Down, Left, Right, Hold A, Start" still works! I put this screen in a save slot so I can go back and play any level anytime I want.

I will be buying the rest of the Sonic games from Amazon.

This is an awesome game!I consider you guys and girls buy it it's a awesome game beside the part that sometimes it's hard.

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.
