Apple's free App of the Week is an all-time classic title from SEGA called Sonic CD. It costs $2.99 on a regular day, but for one whole week you can download it for free.
Sonic CD is a Wonderful Classic Title Every Gamer Should Have on their Smartphones
There are some games out there that have a special place in our hearts for a wide variety of reasons. Graphics and audio effects aside, these titles offer entertainment value which no one else can for hours on end. Sonic CD is without a doubt that title, and manages to pique the interest of every single person regardless of age.
Commanding a $2.99 price tag on a regular day, Sonic CD is a must-have game on mobile devices like the iPhone or iPad. But for a lot of users, that price tag can be a little too steep. But thankfully, courtesy of Apple, you can download the game absolutely free for one whole week and relive a classic without tossing in a single dime.
From the App Store:
Sonic travels to the distant shores of Never Lake for the once-a-year appearance of Little Planet - a mysterious world where past, present, and future collide through the power of the Time Stones that lie hidden within it.
Sonic arrives only to find the once beautiful world imprisoned beneath a twisted metallic shell. His arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman, has come for the Time Stones and with them, will soon have the power to control time itself!
In order to put an end to Dr. Eggman’s nefarious schemes, Sonic must use the power of Little Planet to travel through time; breaking Dr. Eggman’s hold over the future by destroying his machines in the past and recovering the missing Time Stones!
With that out of the way let's dive right into the nitty gritty part of the whole deal - where to download Sonic CD from.
