If you even vaguely liken yourself as a Sonic fan, now is the time to open up your virtual wallet and spray some dollars Sega's way. Sonic [Free], Sonic 2 [Free], and Sonic CD [Free] all not only have received Christian Whitehead's amazing remastering treatment… But they're also on sale for a buck. If you're not familiar with what I'm talking about with the whole "remastering" thing, here's the highly abridged version of the tale:

A super Sonic fan named Christian Whitehead tossed a video on YouTube in late 2009 showing an incredible remake of Sonic CD. Like when most fan projects get too good, we fully expected the next chapter of the story to be, "Well, Sega just sent me a cease and desist, it's been fun." Instead, Sega hired him, and he's pumped out three Sonic ports that are so good, you could make a strong argument that they're better than the originals.

Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing [$3.99], as well as both Sonic 4 Episode I [$2.99] and Sonic 4 Episode II [$2.99] are a buck, but the originals are truly where it's at. Even if you don't have much intention of playing through all three games, I totally recommend picking up Sonic, Sonic 2, and Sonic CD if for no reason other than to send a three dollar message to Sega that says, "YES PLEASE, MORE OF THIS."

Note: These sales just hit, so it'll take a bit for the price change to filter through to the TA app and things like that. They're 99¢ in iTunes, trust me!

    What Sonic should I buy between 1, 2 and CD should I just buy one? Never been a big fan of Sonic but would like to have one to play sometime.

    Anyone know is sonic jump is any good?

    • Nekkedsnake

      it's ok, and it was free before. but Sonic Dash is more fun. it's an auto runner and totally fits Sonic's FAST persona

  • Kane

    I bought all 3 at full price when they remastered them, and i'm not a fan. I just appreciated the work put into this. Plus i like SEGA. More moneyzz for them.

    • Nekkedsnake

      true. Christian Whitehead and crew did an awesome job remastering all 3 games for mobile. Sonic 2 being awesome because u can play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles OR Sonic & Tails. So many options!

  • Nekkedsnake

    i got all 3 Sonics back last year when they were 0.99 last time. 3 games for the price of one. worth every penny.

    • Kane

      I just hope they give Streets of Rage series the same treatment. I bought those 3 at full price too.

      • Zerol3onheart

        Yes! SoR 2 was my favorite back in the day, and the port is the capital of sadness town.

  • falco

  • blakedaking

    Had to pick up sonic 2 for a buck. I still hope for a Zelda or Mario port.

  • Talxn

    Just got all three, thanks for the heads up.

  • Flynn Taggart

    I love it when a game goes on sale a week after it's released. When I have already paid full price for it.

    • Carvool

      Or, you know, over three years ago in these games' situation.

  • gamergirl2785

    Got Sonic 2 🙂

  • philadendron

    Figures, right after I bought 2 as soon as it was remastered.
