|Sonic Wings Special for Android|
|Japanese Name||ソニックウイングススペシャル (Sonic Wings Special)|
|English Name||Sonic Wings Special|
|Release Date||March 7, 2012|
This version of Sonic Wings Special is a port created as an app for Android devices. It has enough differences from the original version of Special for it to be considered a separate game. Also, the app is completely in English.
The Special app currently features four playable characters, nine stages, and four different endings. It appears that there is no way to choose a path among the stages or to receive other than one ending per character. There is also apparently no two-player mode available. The system of power ups and extra points remains the same as in other Sonic Wings games.
The music and graphics have translated well to the Android version. However, players have expressed dissatisfaction with the game's controls: the player's plane fires shots continuously and must be controlled by the player's finger. Special weapons are detonated by touching an icon on the screen.
A free version of the app is available. It contains only the first level of the game, and Keaton is the only playable character. It seems that the free version will only play once on each device; after one play, loading the game will bring up the Google Play store's page for the full version of the app.
