Having arrived in BlackBerry World for the BlackBerry PlayBook many moons ago, SEGA of America has now gone ahead and updated Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I to be compatible for the BlackBerry Z10 as well. The featureset of the game remains the same as the BlackBerry PlayBook but in case you've never checked the version out, here's the rundown.

Game Features

  • 2 Exclusive Levels - Two exclusive levels built specifically for using the accelerometer.
  • New Moves - All of Sonic's classic moves are available, including the newer Homing Attack, which will add a new level of control and excitement.
  • Classic Sonice Stages - Race through 4 unique zones containing 4 acts each as well as 7 special stages.
  • Special Stages Return - A staple of the Genesis-era games, the special stages return allowing fans to collect the 7 Chaos Emeralds and unlock Super Sonic.
  • Revamped Classic Boss Battles - Dr. Eggman returns with new and improved mechas and will go berserk when he accumulates damage.

I already have Sonic on my PlayBook so I don't think I'll be grabbing it on my Z10, even though SEGA is allowing 'free' Z10 downloads if you purchased it on your PlayBook but if you don't already own it, the game is available now in BlackBerry World for $6.99. Hopefully, Sega willbring some more of their titles over now as well.

    it's great to see more big names arrive everyday! i literally check the new arrivals in the bb world everyday to see what we get.

    I just hope this will encourage big name app developers to see it's worth building for blackberry, as game developers are showing great support

    Bought it on the PlayBook but seems like have to pay again on the Z10...

    Shouldn't have to.. are you using the same BBID? If so, just wait a bit and see if it changes. I know a few people have already downloaded it without needing to pay again. Plus, it's just showing download for me right now, indicating I don't need to pay again.

    Same BBID, yup

    Good call on the waiting. Had to refresh My World a few times but it finally showed up

    Thanks!

    So if I buy it now for the Z10, will it DL for free on my PB?

    Zach Gilbert

    Yes, it should transfer over seeing that they are the same items in BlackBerry World and not different sku's.

    Great - thanks Zach! Sonic brings back a lot of memories and I don't mind shelling out!

    Ok - so I purchased it for my Z10. When I go to BB World on my PB the Sonic page doesn't have a purchase button, nor a download button - nothing!

    jvictor77

    I did. Neutron Player, which I also downloaded on the Z10, appeared on my PB eventually - but not Sonic!
