A certain special somebody (or rather someTHING) is 20 years young today.
Nope, not my nephew Samuel, but Sonic...Sonic The Hedgehog.
The speediest of speedy anthropomorphic hedgehogs first whizzed onto a Sega Mega Drive / Genesis near you on 23rd June, 1991, and has zoomed onto countless platforms since.
One of these is, of course, the iPhone, which The Blue Blur has graced on no less than five occasions already. The pick of the bunch, hitherto, is undoubtedly Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode 1, if you were wondering.
The latest Sonic experience to appear on Apple's touchscreen is Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, a Mario Kart-inspired arcade romp featuring ten of the Japanese game maker's most iconic characters.
With 25 missions, three Grand Prix Cups, and 15 white-knuckle courses available, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing won't be completed in a flash.
And just to let you know: Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is $1.99 for the next two days only!! After that, the offer ends and the price rises to $4.99. Don't say I didn't warn you.
