On the off chance he hasn't entirely worn out his welcome in your heart of hearts, Sega have quietly released a version of the original Sonic the Hedgehog.

As with most iPhone ports these days, the game just kind of...turned up, and as with most iPhone ports these days, control is handled by a touch-sensitive replica of an old controller, stuffed into the corner of a screen (as you can see above).

I'd report on how it controls, but without a demo version available - and with my fingers burned by one too many shitty iPhone ports - I'm going to leave that job to some other poor sod.
