As smartphone owners, many of us have become experts in finding apps and games for free or on the cheap, but it’s all the sweeter when said deal relates to a title or app that we’re actually going to enjoy or use. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is both exhilarating and nostalgia-inducing in equal measure, and thanks to makers SEGA, it has just gone free.
It’s often the case that when games are re-made for the modern era of the touch screen, things don’t play out so well. But SEGA’s Sonic series has continued to flourish thanks to a continual stream of releases across the App Store and Google Play, and following on from the immensely popular Sonic & All-Stars Racing, the newer "Transformed" edition of the game has kept fans of cartoon kart-racing games substantially amused.
Games go free every day. In fact, some pretty darned good titles shake off their price tags and keep us entertained for greater lengths of time than we’re perhaps comfortable with. But Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is more than good – it’s arguably one of the best in the business – so to get such a game without paying a penny is a massive win for mobile gamers.
If you haven’t played Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, perhaps a little background information is in order. You can play as Sonic or any of his numerous pals / nemeses, racing through courses at high speed in transformable vehicles. Whereas the original All-Stars Racing was on land, the transformables make it possible for you to fly through air or crash through the waves in the sea, and trust me when I say that it’s no-end of fun.
You can enjoy the game in multiplayer mode – either online or locally – and with social integration, you’ll always be able to find a friend to challenge.
With great graphics to boot, this is one freebie that you’d be crazy to miss, so grab it right now via the direct App Store link provided below.
