Sega has released a new iOS update of Sonic 2 recently, and it's pretty amazing. This version is essentially the definitive port of the game, with a finished Hidden Palace Zone -- a level that's never been fully playable before.
But strangely, iOS 7 controller support is not listed anywhere on the game's page or the iTunes description. Following up on a tip I received from CNET's Scott Stein, I attached a Powershell and an Ace Power to my device, and found out there's actually hidden iOS controls natively supported. Since Sonic 2 is essentially a one button game anyway, it works perfectly.
Hopefully Sega can get iOS controls up and running for every game on the marketplace.
At long last, Republique is out on PC via Steam, GOG.com, and the Humble Store
