Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Sales on iPhone


Sales for the classic Genesis/Mega Drive title Sonic the Hedgehog 2 have been revealed via the website FingerGaming.

Recently released on Apple’s imprudently named ‘iTunes App Store’, the game is available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. According to an article by Gamasutra, it has sold well enough to rank in at number two on the top ten titles sold during the past week for iPhone, and its ranking is by revenue rather than total sales (most games are cheap one dollar titles, making for high sales and low revenue).

The game is essentially a direct emulation of the 16-bit title, although controls have been changed – most notably the touch screen buttons on iPhone/iPad – and the game is now only single player, unlike the original two-player version.
