Old Classic From The Past
Majority of the people are probably going to buy this game only for sake of nostalgia purposes. Its rather cheap game so why not really, while i do not think its best of the old sonic games its still decent title and rather revolutionary when it comes to whole gaming industry.

Positives
  • Iconic Soundtrack
  • Great choice for speedrunners
  • Controller & Keyboard support and works well with both choices
  • Lot of great Nostalgia (oh how ive become this old...)

Negatives
  • Doesn´t have the retry button (The Arcade Thing) So you have to use Autosaves
  • Not the longest game really

The classic, the first one, the unique. Just hear the "Sega" sound and the following one and you'll have travelled back in time 20 years ago. Oh, what memories brings this game up...

The Sonic games hold up to the test of time very well as good solid platformers. I had Sonic 2 as a child so I found Sonic 1 rather hard to get into as it does not have the spin dash move. Sonic 1 seems much more unforgiving and difficult compared to sonic 2. As games of this era had no save function, by the time you got to the final boss you would have played the first levels hundreds of times and know them like the back of your hand. So if you come to the game now without this experience it does seem rather difficult. The quick save function on this emulator works well to compensate for my reduced attention span. Overall if you are looking at this game because of nostalgia buy it and it will live up to your memories if you did not play this as a child I'd probably not bother.

This game was one of the harder ones to beat, but once you beat it you learn to appreciate how awesome it really was. Die-hard Sonic fans cannot call themselves that without having played and beaten the old school Sonic games, this included.
