So SEGA put out a update for Sonic Runners
which you have to download if you want to be able to play the game, which is okay as long as you can download it. Except it’s not officially released yet outside of Japan and Canada, so Android users outside of those countries can’t update the game the normal way.
Thankfully, Neowl from our forums has uploaded the .apk file, so just install it on your Android device and you should be able to play the game again. And your save data won’t be lost by downloading it. Alternatively, you can also download the update through the Japanese QooApp store. You should also be able to download any future updates through that as well. iOS users should be able to normally update the game through the App Store.
As for what the update actually does, we don’t know the official patch notes but our forum members have noticed framerate improvements and that the game no longer closes when their phone goes into sleep mode. So you no longer have to worry about your phone going on stand by because of how long the loading screens are.
Sumo Digital has shown more support for the PC version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed today by releasing a 370 MB update on Steam. This update addresses some big issues certain players had with the game. It includes an alternative INTZ Render for old cards that don’t support INTZ, bug and exploit fixes and VAC support. There’s a downside to this update as well though: because of the exploit fixes the leaderboards have now been wiped to get rid of suspicious times. You can read the full details about this update here.
An update for the console versions was also released last week, which fixed a bunch of stuff like a tuned down difficulty of Traffic Attack, Ring Race and certain Race events, exploit and bug fixes etc. A change log for that can be read here.
The first update for Sonic Jump is now available on iTunes for free. This update adds Blue Sky Zone, which includes 12 new story levels and one new endless arcade level. The gimmick of this zone is that you can bounce off balloons, Batbots and Spinners appear as enemies in the stage. Another addition is Amy as a playable character along with new abilities.
Also added is something called Global Challenge, in this players need to work together by getting as high as possible to get to the moon and unlock a new playable character.
Today the official Sonic the Hedgehog 4 website was updated with a hefty amount of new material. The site’s design was revamped to look more like Splash Hill Zone, the first planned level in the game, and several more assets–namely screenshots and the music for the level itself–were released to suit. In addition, the second character box in the Characters section of the website has been revealed to be none other than Dr. Eggman, alleviating any prior rumors of “Classic Sonic” being the second featured character bio.

UPDATE: Now with looping ADX version of the Splash Hill Act 1 track!
