Sonic the Hedgehog, the longstanding Sega mascot, has driven to iOS.
Sega on Thursday announced the launch of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for iOS. The game, which has been available on traditional game platforms, including the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, since 2012, has been modified to work with Apple's iPhone and iPad.
Like the console version, the game allows users to control Sonic or other Sega characters as they race through different tracks. The "Transformed" comes into play during a race when vehicles can be modified into a car, boat, or plane. The game also … Read more
Generally, Americans are trained to pour their beers down the side of a glass, minimizing the foam. The makers of the Sonic Foamer, a bubble-inducing beer gadget, are on a mission to change all that. The device claims to improve the flavor of beer by boosting the aroma through the power of ultrasonic frequencies.

The Chevrolet Sonic is a simple car. For a reasonable price, you get four seats and a hatchback, a reasonably powered engine, and a pretty good infotainment setup. On paper, there's not much to go wrong or terribly right either with this followup to the frankly dull Aveo hatchback with which we're familiar.
Between you and me (and the rest of the Internet), I'm a huge fan of B-segment vehicles. There's something about the low entry cost, the cleverness of the packaging, and the potential for low-speed thrills that I just get. I'm more of … Read more
Sonic Dash marries the world's fastest hedgehog with a mobile game setup that he seems perfectly matched for. This endless runner takes everything that makes other endless runners so popular, integrates a fair number of fun Sonic tropes, and hits blend to create a fun runner that looks and feels like Sonic the Hedgehog in just about every way--a lot more so than many other recent outings.
Sonic Dash borrows a lot of ideas from other endless runners like Temple Run, but it is also relatively unique. Sonic runs across platform stages, moves by swiping the screen, but can … Read more
Attention all those of you who came of age in the 1990s: Sonic the Hedgehog is back and ready for the mobile world of the 21st century.
So get out your old HyperColor T-shirts, pop in that cassette copy of Pearl Jam's "Ten," and get ready to relive the days when kids had actually heard of a company named Sega.
The company this week launched a remastered version of the original Sonic game in the Google Play store for Android, and also announced the next title in the Sonic franchise will be exclusive to perhaps Sega's oldest foe, Nintendo.… Read more
