Sonic Transformed iOS CONFIRMED (For December)

Recommended Posts

I think it will, and in fact hope so too as I have the same one, haha!

Really glad this is finally being released.

I quite liked the first iOS Sonic All Stars game :)

I shall be downloading this on my 5S as soon as it's available. Mobile technology has come alone in leaps and bounds since the already impressive ASR was released a few years ago. Only thing I'm worried about it what it's going to cost. I understand F2P as a business model (or a cheap game where microtransactions are encourages), and IIRC it was very profitable for SEGA last time, but I really hate it. Just let me buy the whole game for a normal price, and unlock things the standard way.

How much storage will be needed?

 

I'm not sure about the final install size off the top of my head (I don't have a device at home with it on!) but the ipa file which is used to install it is around 900mb. We actually have more events than ever before so you get a _LOT_ for that space.

 

I have an iPhone 5s and iPad mini with Retina however like Sonic Dash, I switch my progress from time to time with both devices thanks to iCloud game saving. Does this game support iCloud saving?

 

Yep it does support cloud saves so you can sync between devices. :)

Wow, so around a gigabyte? That's pretty big, not to mention it'll probably need more to install it over wifi. What time does it go up on the App Store?

Will there be such a feature for Android devices, too?

 

Yep, it uses Google Play for cloud save support on Android.

You do get a huge amount of content for that though - it actually takes me longer to play through SART mobile than the console version! I'd like to detail what all that content is, but until the app is live then I can't say any more than has already been said. :)

 

I'm not sure what time it goes live, I guess that's all down to Apple/Google/SEGA? Whoever pushes a button on the app store to make it show up. It's not me that's for sure!

Ryo hears the news:

I shouldn't laugh, but it's the fact that each piece of news seems like an even bigger troll than the last. I really can't believe there's only one playable character available from the start.

 

Hang on.... how is multiplayer going to work? If nobody bothers to unlock a second character, does that mean everyone is Sonic, or only people who use the unlocks can play since the original has enough pre-opened character slots for an online game?

Turns out it's been live on the New Zealand App Store for the last 5 hours or so.

Look at all those Eggman Microtransactions!
 
Seriously I'm in shock! There's only one playable character from the start in a racing game. Is this a free to play title?

Nope! It costs $6.49AU.

Wait, so you only get one character from the start, but you have to pay for the app? Sumo, please fix this, you should at least be able to have a sizable amount of characters to start with if the game costs money.

What does it cost in pounds then?

From the looks of the video it seems you do buy characters with the ingame currency.

$7
Full of microtransactions
 
 
Oh boy. I'll probably wait for it to go on sale or go free.

That's $6.49 in Australian Dollars. According to people posting over at TouchArcade, it works out at $4.99 US.

GAME HINT: Why not buy everything for just $10? Who needs to put the time and effort into playing the game!

Its like there insulting the people who didn't want to go through the world tour mode on the console version.
