It was only a matter of time before SEGA released Sonic the Hedgehog on Apple’s iPhone, and the time is now. At $5.99, this port “stretches the screen to fit the aspect ratio of the iPhone and overlays a transparent D-Pad on one side and matching transparent button to jump on the other.” Video after the break.

Sega, please, release more games. You’re sitting on a gold mine here. Optimize the emulator a little more so it runs well on the iPhone then do absolutely nothing but release every good game from the Genesis library you still hold publishing rights to.
