It's out in Canada too. Store listings aren't all updated yet, so go to the company listing for SEGA CORPORATION (the one with the Miku games, not the SEGA listing that has the other Sonic titles).

Is it just me or is this actually quite fun?

I went in really hoping it would be good; I'd dearly love Sonic to revitalise as a franchise. I doubt I'm alone though in not really expecting the best from a new game in the franchise these days. Maybe I'm riding on nostalgia, but I enjoyed what I've played so far.

It feels like Sonic. None of the 3D shenanigans, Were-hedgehogs or Team Chaotix; just traditional side on platforming. It's obviously jiggled about to fit an endless runner mould but it's fairly subtly done. It's respectful of the roots but exciting, very fast and challenging. It's a little odd triple jumping as Sonic but when that's all I can think of to mention, that's not too shabby.

I'm early in obviously and things could change dramatically depending on IAPs, future levels and repetition but I'm hopeful. Something I've not dared to be with the series for some time now. Nice find!

Game Impressions



I dont know, but this feels like a game from the early app store days. And the facebook spam is really annoying.

Fyi to anyone that cares, it does require an Internet connection.

I wish it didn't but it does. It also does a connection check after every level it seems so you may want to make sure you have a steady connection.
