The 2013 release of Sonic the Hedgehog is an enhanced downloadable remake of the 1991 Sega Mega Drive game Sonic the Hedgehog. It was published by Sega for iOS and Android devices in May 2013.

This particular version of Sonic the Hedgehog was developed by Sonic Retro Tech Members The Taxman and Stealth, using a proprietary game engine named the "Retro Engine" (an updated version of that seen in the 2011 version of Sonic the Hedgehog CD and fangames such as Retro Sonic Nexus). It replaced the 2009 iPhone release of the game (handled by Backbone Entertainment), and rather than rely on emulation, is specifically tailored for the hardware, offering enhanced features and new modes of play.

In 2017, the game became free with the other Sega Forever apps. Users who installed it for free now have ads and previous paid owners can restore their purchase to make the app ad-free.

Gameplay

This version of Sonic 1 features a number of enhancements such as widescreen support, online leaderboards, filters to change the way the game is displayed, and extra gameplay-related bonuses such as a Spin Dash option, and a widely enhanced debug mode. When the game is beaten once, Tails and Knuckles can be unlocked as can the Sonic and Tails combo seen in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Using the aforementioned debug mode, along with other hidden features, the player can also uncover the ability to use Super characters, as well as interact with objects never seen in, or scrapped from, the original game.

With the exceptions above, it is otherwise faithful to the original game. It also addresses multiple bugs, and boasts a constant 60 FPS.
