Carl Williams writes, "You would think Sega would have been all over bringing Sonic to mobile devices considering the popularity of endless runners. Only in the last couple of years have they taken up this combination in earnest. Early on we saw Sonic the Hedgehog hit mobile with Sonic 4 Episode 1 and Episode 2 (and due to poor sales, no more). That is the past, and Sega has seemingly learned their lesson as far as what type of Sonic game will work on mobile devices and what won’t. Sonic Forces – Speed Battle is a continuation of what works on mobile and boy does it work well."
