Sonic Runners has now become available worldwide and as a huge Sonic fan, it is my obligated duty to try this game out…
This is not a detailed review but more so my thoughts on the game so far as I have only had 5 hours of playtime so far. Sonic Runners is a 2015 side-scrolling platform video game developed by Sonic Team for iOS and Android devices. It is the first mobile game in the franchise developed by Sonic Team. It was first released in Japan and Canada before been released worldwide on 25 of June.
It’s essentially an endless game but with a small twist to keep things interesting. Players can obtain items such as invincibility and Wisp powers to help them along their way. The game also has companions that assist the player and provide “bonus”, like extra percentages of rings, score and time. Now let me get this out right now, like all the sonic fans out there, I was initially disappointed that this game was not the rumoured next gen game title that most of us were hoping for but I quickly got over it and took the game for what it is, a mobile game.
When I first played the game I gotta admit, I enjoyed it, it definitely won’t hold you up for hours long but it is still at the end of the day a fun mobile game that really draws inspiration from various aspect of the sonic franchise. Sonic’s new design, along side the rest of the crew is pretty sleek, kinda like mix of old and modern. The music is awesome and the gameplay is fast and fluid.
I would recommend trying it out yourself, its free and available now.
