  1. It keeps crashing when I try to play Sonic the Sketchog or Sonic 4 lite, even though I have the full one. It’s really slow too. Turns on fast but when I press start or anything else, it’s ’06 all over again :/

      1. I have a second gen that went through a lake and lost touch capabilities for a month. Then they came back after some paint lol.

  2. For today I was ranked #7! For all time, I am rank #207 🙂 i think the highest mode is “death” lol.

  3. Whats REALLY sad is that Sonic the Sketchhog is more addictive than the iPod versión of Sonic 4 xD Whos with me?

  4. Works fine on iPad2 although it’s just an iphone/ipod touch 4g app.
    Would have been better with retina for this and sonic 4.
    I wouldn’t mind a port of Sonic 3D to be quite honest, I think it would make a nifty iPad app!
    (but not with the PC special stages as they sucked!)
