It’s taken a good couple of months of rumours and speculation, but at last we can finally put aside the doubts that have been surrounding an Android release of Sonic Jump, SEGA’s mobile-exclusive digital title. As revealed on the official Sonic the Hedgehog Facebook page, the blue blur has now leapt his way onto Google Play – better late than never!
The game is priced at £1.46 in the UK and is officially described as follows:
Jump as Sonic in a new vertical adventure!
The original platform jumper is back as Sonic leaps up an all new vertically challenging adventure in stunning HD graphics!
Play as Sonic or his friends leaping through familiar and new Sonic worlds to battle Dr. Eggman, as you tilt and tap your way through fixed Story levels and Arcade infinite modes.
Play as your favourite characters including Sonic, Tails & Knuckles, each with their own unique abilities.
Jump across the legendary Green Hill Zone or take to new worlds including Mountain & Jungle Zones.
Leap through 48 different levels on a quest to stop the evil Dr. Eggman.
Jump until you drop in the infinite Arcade Mode, where where it ends depends on how long you can jump for.
Fight in epic boss battles between Sonic and his arch-rival Dr. Eggman!
Compete against friends to see who can jump highest in Arcade Mode or set epic scores in leaderboards.
Collect rings as you play the game, or purchase them in store, to unlock characters, power ups and more.
We are working hard to bring you more characters and new worlds in future FREE updates.
All of the characters featured in the latest update for the iOS version – Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Rouge, Silver, and Blaze – are all available to be unlocked from the in-game shop once you rack up enough rings (or in the case of Blaze, as soon as you boot up the game for the first time!). Or, if you’re not keen for a lot of grinding – and we don’t mean the Sonic Adventure 2 variety – you can unlock everything without any of the hassle for the rather hefty price of £14.99.
