Sonic 4 iPhone Trailer

SEGA has released the trailer for Sonic 4: Episode 1 on the iPhone/iPod.  The good news is that it’s looking every bit as impressive as its console sibling, with the added bonus of being able to play on the loo.  I wasn’t too keen on the world rotating during a loop though – it’s made me go a bit cross eyed.

  1. Is there a non You-Tube video? I can’t view those at work.

  2. Some of the most horrendous music I’ve heard in the last few years. Good god!

  3. Shouldn’t part of that video be obscured by fingers? or is it a tilt game?

    • I’d assume it’s tilt controls given the camera follows Sonic through the loops.

      • If it is a tilt game, it’s hardly an authentic Sonic gameplay experience.

      • It must have some touch though to jump and attack targeted enemies. I suppose you could shake to activate but that’d be annoying

    • I’ll be surprised if its not the usual see-through pad on the screen, like all the other Sonics on the App Store

      • In that case i find the video a little misleading as it gives the impression that the screen is not obscured.

  4. The loop rotation sucks, but the game looks fine otherwise.

  5. I have been playing sonic games since the 1st one on the megadrive and looks like i will be continuing to play sonic games for the forseeable future, can’t wait to play this

  6. following him in a loop is abit sickening, but all looks good :)

    • thats what i thought. odd way of doing it, wonder if you can turn that off in the options

  7. I do like the look of this, should be awesome on the pS3.

  8. following Sonic in the loop gave me a headache.

    • I hope that is just a feature on the iphone and ipad, could get a bit annoying after a while.
