If you’re like us this time of year, you might be looking for something to fill in the gaps between your Christmas commitments, and what better way to spend some spare time than playing some old-school games and reliving your youth.

Well, it’s not quite that nostalgic, but Sonic the Hedgehog was a big part of my younger days with my Sega Megadrive, and if you, too, want to get back in on some retro gaming, now could be the time, as Sonic the Hedgehog games are on special in the Play Store for the next week or so until new years.

Here’s the full list of games on sale:

These games are all pretty fun, with Sonic All-Star racing reminding me of the early Mario Kart days, and the two Sonic the Hedgehog 4 titles being straight up classics in the old Sonic style. As with most games played on a touchscreen, the touch interface isn’t perfect for gaming, but for a quick casual game here and there, it’s more than passable.

For under $5, you get some great games to kill some time with, so what are you waiting for?

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
