Some bittersweet news for Sonic fans with an Android handset. Sonic Advance, the blue hedgehog’s well-received Game Boy Advance adventure, is now available for Google’s smartphone OS but only in Japan.
Since we can’t download the game, we’re yet to verify if the app featuring Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy is exactly the same as its original 2001 outing. Whatever the case, we expect there to still be the same action packed mix of golden rings, bouncy spring and the evil Eggman trying to stop you along the way.
The original Sonic Advance contained six distinct zones in the normal game and two additional special zones which is a huge amnount given the app is currently free to download.
If you happen to live in Japan, you can download Sonic Advance from the Android Market here. If you’re feeling pretty jealous of our Eastern cousins right now, expect Life Of Android to keep you up-to-date on when this app is available for UK and US download.
