Sonic Ditches Mario For iPhone Olympics

Sonic gives Mario the slip and sets out on his own (with a few friends) in Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, now available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Sonic's solo winter Olympics outing is now available for purchase, with $4.99 scoring you 10 different characters playing 4 different events. Team up with Sonic, Amy, Tails, Knuckles, and a host of characters you may or may not care about, as they do their best to triumph at snowboard cross, skeleton and figure skating, and curling, which according to Canada is an actual sport.

The game features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi multiplayer, and a whole host of unlockables, which might make up for the small number of events. It sounds kind of nice for a $4.99 iPhone title, and so far it has an average rating of five stars. Granted that's from two people, but perhaps they are two very well-informed people, and not the developer's family.
