How To Play Sonic Advance [SonicN Nokia N-Gage Game] On Android

Sonic Advance is a platform game for the GBA (Game Boy Advance) which was released in 2001 in Japan. It was released in North America in 2003. Itwas ported to Nokia N-Gage in 2003 as SonicN. SonicN is the launch title for the Nokia’s N-Gage gaming console. The game features four playable characters Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose. The player has to clear several acts and defeat doctor Eggman in boss stages. Since there is no N-Gage emulator available for android you can’t play the SonicN N-Gage game on android. But there is an alternate way with which you can play it.

SonicN is the complete port of the GBA’s Sonic Advance. It is also ported to android. So the gameplay is almost the same on both platforms. The game is more enjoyable on the GBA android emulator because it can run in landscape mode on larger screens as compared to the Nokia N-Gage which ran the game in portrait mode only, also, the emulation is slow on the Nokia’s gaming console. You can also apply cheats in the GBA emulator for android. I too have played this game many times in my childhood days.
