The official Sonic The Hedgehog Twitter page, announced, that Sonic CD will be free forever, for mobile phones. Sonic CD is a 1993 side-scrolling platform video game published by SEGA for the SEGA CD. The story focuses on Sonic The Hedgehog as he attempts to save Little Planet from Doctor Robotnik while making rounds with his robotic doppelgänger Metal Sonic, who has kidnapped Amy Rose.
The gameplay is similar to previous games in the series, Sonic CD is distinguished by the time travel mechanic. By travelling through time, players can access different versions of stages featuring alternate layouts, music, and graphics.
The development of Sonic CD began after the completion of the original Sonic the Hedgehog. Development was handled by Sonic Team, directed by Sonic character designer Naoto Ohshima. It was conceived as an enhanced port of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 that would take advantage of the Sega CD’s abilities, but split into a separate project after lower-than-expected sales of Sonic 2 in Japan. Two soundtracks were written for the game, with the North American version composed by Sega Technical Institute.
The game received critical acclaim from critics, who praised its graphics, gameplay, and audio. Some critics have called it one of the best games in the series. It was also the Sega CD’s best-seller, with 1.5 million copies sold by 2015. It was ported to Microsoft Windows as part of the Sega PC brand in 1996 and to PlayStation 2 and GameCube as part of Sonic Gems Collection in 2005. An enhanced port using the Retro Engine was released for various platforms in late 2011.
