Today, Sega released the Android version of Sonic 4 Episode II exclusively for Tegra 3 devices so I decided to get up early so I could get my Hedgehog on. After playing Episode 1 and totally getting hooked, I was stoked to see what the new THD episode had in store for Android gaming. As I expected, Sega hit this one out of the park. In combination with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, Sonic 4 Episode II is a complete blast from the past and well worth the $6.99 it costs in the Google Play Store. It even rivals the original game as it was played on the Sega game console.
If you are anything like me, you played Sonic the Hedgehog in your parents basement for hours on end when you were little and you will take any excuse you can get to relive those days of pure, unadulterated enjoyment. To give you an idea of what you can expect from Sega’s newest Android release, I put together a little demo video of the game in action. Before you go running off to check out the video I also wanted to remind you about our series of NVIDIA contests we are holding. We are giving away 3 separate prize packs over the period of 3 weeks and today is the cut-off for our first giveaway. This week’s prize pack consists of an ASUS Transformer Pad TF300, a matching keyboard dock, a wireless controller from Logitech, and a Jambox speaker. The contest ends tonight at 11:59 EST so be sure to get your entry in soon, and don’t forget to vote for your favorite TegraZone games in the Players Choice Awards. NVIDIA and ASUS are giving away seven of these same Transformer Prize Packs. All you have to do is vote for your favorites TegraZone games for three categorie (Best Gameplay, Best Graphics, and Overall Fun) and you will be automatically entered into the contest.
Okay… now you can go ahead and jump past the break to check out our demo video of the new Sonic game. :-)
