Sonic Dash

Need more Sonic action that doesn’t involve vehicles? Sega has just announced Sonic Dash for iOS devices. Sonic will be running and jumping his way through various obstacles in a 3D environment. You will be able to compete with friends on leaderboards. What it is you’re competing for exactly is unknown. The announcement is rather lacking in details.

The blue hedgehog’s gaming career started strong back in the days of the Sega Genesis. But his early success could not be sustained. His  recent outings on the home consoles can be described as rather spotty (Although he does have his moments). Oddly enough, he’s had better luck when he’s not running on foot. His most consistently good appearance has been on non-traditional gaming devices. Sonic Jump garnered a four and a half star rating on iTunes. If Sonic Dash turns out to be good, will this mark the beginning of a new career for Sonic on smartphones?

No release details has been announced at this time for Sonic Dash.

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?

    Going by the premisse I think it’s gonna be another temple run clone.

  • Sonic hasn’t been THAT bad…
    If you drop the Werehog portion of Unleashed, it plays like Colors and Generations, both of which were completely awesome.

    Don’t get me wrong. From Shadow the Hedgehog to Sonic 06, they really didn’t know what to do with him. But Generations has me as a believer.

      Colors. My favorite Sonic game (yes i prefer it over Adventure 2).

  • As long as it’s not as bugged to hell like Shadow Escaper, then I can dig it. Plus a temple-runner is just right for something like Sonic the Hedgehog.
