Pocket Gamer: Sonic The Hedgehog iPod Review
It's not that the layout of an iPod precludes a platforming game - the right and left on the click wheel for running right and left and centre button for jump is reasonably elegant. The problem lies in a basic lack of responsiveness; often the jump button doesn't work consistently with quick, successive presses, which results in more than a few frustrating deaths.
This prompts a tendency to hammer on the iPod's centre button - a technique that yields only slightly more reliable results and feels like the sort of abuse the device wasn't designed to endure.
It is possible to play through the game by taking a measured approach, such as creeping up to each platform and avoiding any speedy situations that might require a split second button press. But to do this is to rob Sonic of his crowning characteristic - speed.
