Sorry, this contest is closed.

Just in case you thought you had no plans this weekend, we’re here to say, “Sure you do!” with another chance to win a Tegra 3 device in honor of the recent release of Sonic 4 Episode II. So far, we’ve given an ASUS Transformer Prime and Acer Iconia Tab A510 to two lucky readers, and this week we have the famed One X from HTC! Be sure to read more about what you can do to win and “get your Sonic on.”

The Trailer

The Download

Sonic 4 Episode II is available as a paid title for $6.99 and a lite version is free to install.



The Game

The Sonic 4 saga continues with Sonic’s beloved sidekick, Miles “Tails” Power. Players can now experience the Sonic 4 saga as never before with the addition of a brand new engine; bringing you gameplay with updated physics and HD graphics.

“Sonic 4 Episode II is very special because we’ve integrated community feedback into the game,” said Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA of America. “We have some of the most loyal and dedicated fans and I hope they enjoy this next chapter in the Sonic 4 saga.”

For the first time Android gamers can enjoy an experience that is nearly identical to the PS3 and XBox versions, and it comes at half the price. Players with Tegra 3 devices like the HTC One X or ASUS Transformer Prime will enjoy higher quality textures, better lighting and glow effects, and objects on screen that are absent from other mobile versions.

Episode 2 also features a collaborative multiplayer mode where players can team up with a friend via Bluetooth and take control of Sonic and Tails as they battle against Dr. Eggman and Metal Sonic.

We just installed the game on our devices, so look for our full review in the coming weeks.

Release dates:

  • May 15: PS3, Playstation Network, PC digital download via Steam
  • May 16: TegraZone, Xbox Live Arcade
  • May 17: iTunes App Store
  • June: Google Play Store (non-Tegra devices)
  • July: Xbox Live on Windows Phone


  • PS3 and Steam: $14.99
  • Android, iOS: $6.99
  • Xbox Live Arcade: 1200 points

Episode Metal bonus pack:

Players who have Episodes I and II installed on the same device will gain access to a new bonus pack called “Episode Metal.” This unlockable story will feature a playable Metal Sonic, four exclusive levels, and allow players to discover the rebirth of Metal Sonic and learn more about how he survived the events at the end of Sonic CD. If you missed the first episode, grab it from the link below.


Benefits of Tegra 3

Tegra 3 offers gamers the most technically advanced mobile version.

  • The Tegra 3 version of Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II is the most technically advanced mobile version of the game, a near mirror-image of the full-blown PS3 and Xbox versions of the game.
  • In fact, by enjoying a game with a gamepad (either with wired or Bluetooth controllers) and outputting the device to an television via HDMI, it’s the CLOSEST to the actual console experience you’ll get on a mobile device…. All with fast frame rates.
  • Sonic on Tegra 3 has dramatically higher quality textures, better lighting and glow effects, and objects on screen that are absent from other mobile versions.

Non-Tegra vs Tegra 3 version of Sonic 4.

The Contest — Win an unlocked HTC One X

Brace yourself for lightning-fast web browsing, remarkable picture quality and seamless gaming visuals thanks to the powerful quad-core Tegra 3 processor. You’ll love the minimalist design and the camera that captures every moment (even in low light) with crisp, vivid, beautiful photos. It also lets you take a photo while shooting HD video. Plus, with Beats Audio you hear authentic, deep sound with true, finely-tuned details.

How to Enter

Draw a picture of any Sonic character and an Android character. Upload the picture anywhere you like and leave a comment with a link below.

Multiple chances to win: Today marks the middle of a multi-week promotion. We will have additional Tegra 3 powered tablets and smartphones to give away, so be on the lookout. Sega also provided us with some limited edition action figures and comics to give away, so go buy the game if you want a chance at winning some more swag.

  1. Sketching something now, I’ll post it soon.

    • Lol, +1 for being first. I think we will have some people put a little more effort into it though.

    • PhilipGuest 3 years ago

      Aww, this is probably the most adorable entry on here. There’s just something about it that I find really cute. Maybe Sonic pointing his little finger at the Android robot…for no obvious reason? lol Another +1 from me.

  2. Craig MarkerGuest 3 years ago

    Not my best work, but I would love to win.

  3. Will it be chosen on the best image or randomly among people who posted images?

  4. A contest where we actually have to put some effort into it, I like these.

    Is there any possible way to block all these foolish “contests”????
    What a waste of androidandme screen space.

    The contests just get stranger and stranger.

      It’s called advertising and self promotion, get used to it or gtfo

  57. Victor TanGuest 3 years ago

    I wish i had more time to paint better….but this is the best i got

  58. NemainGuest 3 years ago

    Here’s my shot at this – I think If Eggman made Androids like this, Sonic would actually like robotic things rather than destroy them on sight, haha. This was great fun to draw! =)

    Great to see contests that indulge the creative side of the reader – Thanks for running this one, guys!

  59. Haha, I can draw about as well as I did when I stopped drawing in the 3rd grade. LOL

  60. Lucky RGGuest 3 years ago

    Here’s my Entry B)
    Check it out! If you like space, purple planets, foo fighters and stars. And of course Sonic my hero.

    Also can we add more then one entry?? anyone? I’m going hard like Rondo right now.

  61. BernieGuest 3 years ago

    2 player sonic!

  62. MarcusAGuest 3 years ago

    good luck picture ill send into the wild to fend for yourself

  63. Heyy great pictures from everyone!! Great work…

    heres my try!!

  64. Fabio LevyGuest 3 years ago
  65. I hope you guys like my picture. I’d love a HTC One to replace my dying S2.

  66. Competition is heating up, If you liked my Purple Planet sonic then you’ll love my neon green “Sparked Sonic”….

    (((((METAL SONIC))))!

    alot of good ideas are taken already. lol..Hmmm maybe I have one more in me…

  67. Some awesome entries and ideas here from you guys. Here’s my entry, done on plain ol’ paper accompanied by coloured pencils and a lot of mistake-making! Hope you guys enjoy the little Cyanogen nod, I was rushed for time but was really enjoying drawing this one and glad the concept came together nicely. Just wish I had access to my graphics tablet and printer!

    (Also, little SonicBot here: What can I say, I was enjoying it too much!)

    • Oh and the crummy photos are courtesy of my GS2. Understandably a big reason I want to upgrade to the One X so much!

  68. TiffGuest 3 years ago

    Here is my entry. It features a timeless love story involving Sonic and Androidina. Some have said it’s as good as Titanic or Romeo and Juliet or even RAMBO. I think they’re all wrong – I don’t think this love story can be compared to anything else.

  69. George H.Guest 3 years ago

    I think this is the first time I’ve seen a contest like this open to residents of any country… Thanks!

    Here is my entry:
    Sonic and little Android having some fun while playing on the One X :)

    Took almost 9 hours to draw this, and then one more hour to paint it using Photoshop. But had lots of fun doing it!!!
    Just for comparison, I decided to show the original/colorless version as well.

  70. Melissa JaneGuest 3 years ago

    may have gone a little crazy with the explosion in the background, but had a lot of fun! here’s my entry: “explosive combo”

    hope you guys like it!

    - MJ

    • So we meet again MJ, its me RG, I was hesitant to inform you about this one, I didn’t even find it myself, my cousin did, imagine if we had a couple more days lol, I wanted to actually sketch and use some acrylic and maybe some air brush but digital art is so awesome and easy! Cheers may the best man or woman win :) tell millie?? hmmmm lol

      • Melissa JaneGuest 3 years ago

        haha good luck to you too! i’d send her a link, but that option is disabled on her facebook. i guess we could try through pinterest???

        • millieGuest 3 years ago

          hey everyone— thanks! i just got your message, so i will check this out…if its not too late, i will change that thing onn my fb for you guys—we should friend each other, will do that later…so busy, my dad is in the hospital and i am running around like a headless chicken. there’s a mental image i can put out there with my artwork…! a headless chicken running….ppl will think it is some kind of witchy thing…lol

  71. Here’s my final sketch took along time to do, I know the caption need some work but kind of ran out of time. Hope you guys enjoy it. I had alot of fun making it. Even dusting out an old wacom bamboo fun tablet. Before they came up with pressure sensitivity

    Here are my sketches before I combined the idea and concept

  72. A much better effort than my previous entry.

    • NemainGuest 3 years ago

      Impressive combo of painting and photomanip – Very nice work, my friend!

      • Thanks! I put a lot of time into this one. Painting sonic was a ton of fun and he’s about 45 layers of digital paint in photoshop. I had my 9 yr old looking over my shoulder the entire time to make sure I was doing it right.

    • Ha, I got down voted. Gotta love the jealous trolls of the interwebz.

  73. RobertWGuest 3 years ago

    I’m not a professional artist, but I put a lot of effort into this:

    And my sketch:

  74. Again, somehow I start these things thinking, “oh, it won’t be THAT hard…” And again, I get proven that I totally miss that mark in predicting how difficult things end up being, haha =p.

    Here is my stereoscopic (read: 3D!) version of Sonic and Andy.

    • In order to see it, cross your eyes until you see the third image in the center. That will be the one that shows 3d cues (the warp speed light rays, sonic and andy overall, emphasis on sonic’s arm and leg, on andy’s arm/leg/antenna).

      If you can’t manually cross your eyes, put your index finger up to your nose, stare at the tip of your finger, then slowly follow your finger as you move it towards the computer screen. Once you see a third image forming between the two images (from your periphery), look at the third image and lo and behold the 3d!

      Draft 1 – hand drawn:

      Draft 2 – computerized:

      Draft 3 – colorized:

  75. imitator101Guest 3 years ago

    Sonic and his new friend

  76. Melissa JaneGuest 3 years ago

    idk if it matters how many we do, but i felt like trying another one. tails was a lot harder than shadow…at least for me.

  77. SdeyGuest 3 years ago

    Hi guys I have uploaded two more pics
    Here’s the link:

    Actually one is in RGB mode and the other is in CMYK mode.
    hoping for the best while keeping my fingers crossed.

  78. This could bei the worst one of all entries…

  79. Sonic/Skyrim Crossover…
    Hope it’s not too late to submit! :D

  80. PhilipGuest 3 years ago

    A lot of people here are doing “versus” stuff. Why do people want Sonic and the Android robot to fight? They should be buddies, you guys! Sonic loves emeralds, and the Android robot is the color of emerald (just go with it, lol)…so here’s my entry:

    Good luck to everyone!

    I saw this contest just today as I was randomly browsing for Android game reviews. Decided to give it a shot anyway, even though I don’t really draw. For those interested, here’s my original sketch. I know, huh. I’m a messy drawer. Can barely draw a straight line without “retracing” it. lol

    • PhilipGuest 3 years ago

      Did I make it? I made some adjustments. Same, exact concept, though. =)

      Just in case you don’t get it, the concept plays around with the idea that, with the HTC One X equipped with the Tegra 3, Sonic 4 Episode II plays “fast” (progress) with “amazing graphics” (beauty). At the same time, it also plays around with the idea that the Android robot and Sonic are in an “emerald bromance,” since the former is green, the color of emerald, and the latter loves his emeralds.

  81. NemainGuest 3 years ago

    This was too much fun to not draw something else! Android meets robot in this one. :)

    Really enjoying seeing the artwork here. Well done and good luck all!

  82. Sonic, best android game ever. Here’s my imagination……….. :)

  83. OkuGuest 3 years ago
    Si many potatoes in thé world :0

  84. EleonoraGuest 3 years ago

    This is my drawing. Grab for Tegra 3 powered HTC One X!

  85. MardexGuest 3 years ago

    I hope it will win because I made a big effort to draw this image.

    Sonic and Android are the best!!!

  86. I’ve noticed a lot of down voting on these entries, including both of mine. Anybody who comes here and down votes any of these drawings is a petty jealous troll. That is all.

    • PhilipGuest 3 years ago

      I don’t see any negative votes, nor do I see any entries that have partiularly high votes (mostly just 1 vote). In any case, do the votes really even matter? I think the winner will be up to Android and Me. The votes have no value man, I don’t think you need to worry about it.

      • I’m sorry you missed the negative votes and I’m sure you’re correct that AndroidAndMe will be voting not based on the down vote/up vote, I was never worried it’s just a contest. That wasn’t my point. My point was everyone who enters this regardless of skill level is AWESOME because they actually took the time to draw something and enter. It just annoys me when I see people down voted for no reason other than trolling.

        • NadiaGuest 3 years ago

          Agreed! =)

        • PhilipGuest 3 years ago

          I saw the negative votes after I posted that response. I was using my phone when I saw your post, and it was kind of hard to see everything, considering the amount of entries on here.

          Anyway, I see what you’re saying. But then again, where have you been? I’m sorry if you don’t realize how the internet works. Hehehe. (Sorry, just had to insert a little joke-comeback there.) Dude, trolls are *everywhere*. You can’t really control them. If they want to troll, they’ll troll. If you let what they do annoy you, then they obviously win. Also, the reason why I suggested to not worry about the votes was not necessarily because of the contest itself, but because, again, the votes don’t matter, so why does it matter that some entries are getting voted down? I don’t think anyone really cares about the votes (not me, at least. I didn’t even realize you could vote up/down someone until you mentioned it).

          Like I said, if you *allow* the trolls to annoy you, then they win. Best thing to do is to just ignore them. I mean, just look at this issue: Out of probably hundreds of participants, we’re the only ones talking about the trolled votes. lol In a way, we’re letting the trolls win.

          Anyway, good luck man. :) Good luck to all participants! Negative votes, shmegative votes. If they really feel like it, then let them be green with envy, because Android is green, and emeralds are green…so it’s cool. lol

          • Wow, 4 paragraphs to tell me to chill haha Indeed you’re right though. Still, it it needed to be said. I’m an artist but I’m willing to bet a lot of people on here aren’t so for them to post their drawings is cool as shit. So my point wasn’t really about me getting down votes, I could care less, honestly. I’ve been through art college critiques a lot harder than silly down votes. I was speaking out of respect for the people on here who are willing to post their work regardless of their artistic ability trying to win a very awesome android device. They don’t need to be disrespected

            As for the “where have you been” comment… I’m 30 years old, I’ve been knee deep in trolls since Prodigy (Dial-Up for those who don’t remember the internet pre-fiber).

          • PhilipGuest 3 years ago


            Haha. Sorry man, it’s my sickness. Even the people who know me are a little afraid of my responses, especially on Facebook. I tend to go overboard with the typing. I don’t know…I guess my fingers just love to type.

  87. pixelp3Guest 3 years ago

    I see a lot of people are doing the versus thing too. Here’s mine:

  88. Just bought a One X and it’s simply awesome…will root it soon.

  89. I used to be so obsessed with Sonic. It’s been about 15 years since the last time I drew him. And that was with pencil and paper.

    Wish me luck!

    Oh and P.S. Awesome entries to everyone else. Seriously.

  93. JSGuest 3 years ago

    I wish I could win a Tegra 3 powered smartphone!! I would give it to my godson, he really likes Android devices as much as I do.

  94. Not the best, but appropriate given the chances of my success. If I did win, I’ll cosplay as Sonic or Andy and post a picture lol.

    This is embarrassingly bad, but it’s the best i could do with and 10 minutes =p

    (it’s both sonic and andy.. didn’t say they had to be separate!)

  107. My 9yr old drew this with Paint.Net and a mouse. Much better than I could do!
