Sonic is one of the most well loved character in video game history, play this collection of fun Sonic based games and remember well your love for the fastest blue hedgehog in games.
Sonic has been one of the mainstays of the video game industry since his first outing, taking on the ever present Dr Robotnik on the Sega Genesis/Megadrive way back in 1991. Since then he's been in multiple games with an expanded roster of allies and an ever growing stable of villains. Over the years Sonic has been joined by his co-hort Miles Powers, a fox with two tails used for flying; Knuckles the Echidna, an echidna packing a mighty punch and Amy the Hedgehog, Sonic's female counterpart and long time crush. Together they've faced off against Dr Robtnik, a scientist bent on using animals to create robots; Robot Sonic, a robotic version of Sonic created by Dr Robotnik and Black Doom, a violent alien leader.
The Sonic games began life as some of the most celebrated platformers ever created putting you in the shoes of the eponymous hero, speeding along vibrant levels filled with evil robots and death defying obstacles. They have been highly praised for offering a mixture of high octane, speedy challenges alongside some more thoughtful platforming sections. Over time the series branched out into other genres, producing third person shooters, RPGs and racing games amongst others. The series has also had notable success with it's crossovers to another staple of the games industry, the Mario series. The two giants of old school video gaming have faced off in bother winter and summer themed Olympic titles.
This Sonic Games collection may not be your usual fare as you can tell from the titles. Sonic Character Designer is pretty self explanatory, it's a fun little app where you can design your own Sonic character. In Sonic 3D Snowboarding you take the speedy hedgehog down a mountain atop a snowboard. Sonic Lost in Mario World is essentially Mario World but instead of playing as Mario you play as Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic Pacman is essentially PacMan but with a Sonic theme too it and the same is true of Sonic Tetris. Sonica is an incredibly awkward platformer with some confusing assets including a worm from the popular series Worms. Finally there's Ultimate Sonic, a fan made flash version of the classic Sonic the Hedgehog game.
All in all it's not a bad way to waste a while but the games development and graphical standards leave a lot to be desired. With most of the games lacking basic functions like a pauses button and titles like Sonica being a barely finished, infuriatingly claustrophobic affairs, this package might not keep you entertained for hours on end. If you're looking for a bit of Sonic fun though it's certainly harmless and well worth the few MBs of space it takes up on the hard drive.
