Major Magnet, an iOS platformer that will be hitting the App Store in early January, published a trailer a few days ago. It reminds us of something, but we can't quite put our finger on it. Perhaps because what it reminds us of is so quick and elusive ... and blue. And spiky. That's it! Major Magnet is totally an homage to Sonic the Hedgehog!

Even though all we have to go on is a short trailer, it's enough for us to determine that the developers at PagodaWest Games have an affinity for SEGA's former flagship mascot. However, in a departure from the classic Sonic gameplay, you will control the environment in Major Magnet, rather than the character. Which means you will be doing a lot of magnet manipulation!
