Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (ソニック・ザ・ヘッジホッグ2[2] Sonikku za Hejjihoggu 2?) is a mobile phone game that was released as part of the Sonic Cafe service offered by Sega.


The gameplay is almost identical to that of the original version for the Sega Mega Drive. However, there are a few additional features, such as an ability to resume the game from the last level played, submitting high scores to a national league table, and an "Attack Mode" where the game's bosses are played against in sequential order. There is also a small green bar at the top of the screen where the player's score can be found, along with the number of Rings and lives.
