Works Sonic on V2 too?

I wonder this too...I mean, I have a V4 but what are the performance compromises to make this run on a V2?

60fps on v4.
40fps on V2.

Amiga coders tend to program games to the lowest denominator (ocs,ecs,1MB chipram), i guess this is done in order to reach the masses.... hopefully with v4 they will stop doing that.

Well, in Vamp world, Picasso96, V2 and 128mb is "lowest denominator" :) Hope that could bring new generation of 2D and isometric 3D games.

Please test if installation manual is clear enough to everyone.

  Could you provide App Store link to correct Sonic ?
 
  It's not clear how to extract the App unless you have Google play.....or even if you can via App Store (iPhone)

How does one safely get the apk file? I think it automatically installs the game from Google Play, without access to the apk package.

Open the instructions in the linked archive, it describes how to do it for Android.

Oh, ok, so you have to install a separate app, APK Extractor. Sorry, but it was not very clear in the instructions. :P

"Get Sonic apk from your phone using Apk Extractor ..."

What's not clear here ?

No such thing on the App Store ?

You asked explicitly for feedback on the clarity of the instructions, mate. :)

What is confusing are the assumptions that
1. One would know about this app (I didn't and I had to google it).
2. One would already have this app on their device.
3. One would know that this is indeed an app (and not an android setting or function).

It would be clearer to place a first step:
-Install said app from Google Play.

Anyway, thanks for your work.

Would love to test on the V2 card.
Is there another option for those people that dont have/want Android?

"Get Sonic apk from your phone using Apk Extractor and locate it on /sdcard/ExtractedApks/." isn't clear that this is another app you will have to find and download on the app store.

Simply changing it to: "Get Sonic apk from your phone using Apk Extractor (also available on the Play store) and locate it on /sdcard/ExtractedApks/."

makes it clear that this is another app to download and not implying that it might be something included with your software or already present on a phone by default. The last part of the sentence "locate it on..." isn't clear either. Locate Apk Extractor there? Place Apk Extrator there? I would suggest the sentence could be changed to:

"To get the Sonic apk from your phone use Apk Extractor (also available on the Play store), then you can locate Sonic.apk in /sdcard/ExtractedApks/."

This way it says what you need to do, where to find the software to do it with and where the resultant file will be found.

I'm not trying to be rude here, I just wanted to point out where the confusion might have been.

That was obvious for me but ok, I will clear that.

I am a huge fan of ARTI's work and this morning I wanted to try SONIC on my V1200, when I saw all the necessary steps I felt dizzy and preferred to do something else ... I hope for a complete package (if possible) from be able to download.
