Must have game: Sonic 4 Episode 1 (for WP7)

Disclaimer: This review is part of a shameless attempt to win fabulous prizes.

If I think back, it's with a slight sense of regret that I probably spent more time playing computer games than doing homework while I was at school. The vast majority of the time I wasted away was spent playing 4 games (or groups of games): Mario, Zelda, Tetris & Sonic.
I don't expect to ever see Mario or Zelda games on a Windows Phone (or XBox) and I've already got the 200 gamers points for Tetris on WP7. Fortunately now I can relive my mis-spent youth by spending far too much time playing Sonic.
It's games like this that make me stop and appreciate how far we've come with technology and just how powerful the phone in my pocket really is. I remember when graphics like this on a console were cutting edge and impressive.
While still looking good even now, the graphics aren't what this game is about though. Sonic is from the golden age of computer games when gameplay was everything! No gimmicks or throwing of animals. This is all about running (really fast) jumping on weird animal creatures and collecting rings. As computer games go, it doesn't get much better than this.

I'm not sure how this is the 4th part in the series as it seems like a rehash of levels from earlier versions of the app. That doesn't matter though it's a great way to relive my childhood and swap sleep for time spent with a speedy blue hedgehog.

Maybe in episode 2 Tails (that was the name of the fox-wasn't it?) will be back?

Get it from the marketplace now (trial available).
