It's back to the basics for playable characters. Our favourite hero is in your control to stop Robotnik before he can get the Death Egg Mark...3? 4? I've lost count. He has all his classic abilities, with the addition of a hit-and-miss targeted attack known as "chaos bullet," in which he shoots himself towards the cursor at high speeds. This is very useful for a rapid strike or reaching high places. If used correctly, it can defeat some bosses in only two or three hits! Run Sonic, run!
Eggman? Who's Eggman? This is your archnemesis, Dr. Robotnik. He's running out of genius plans these days. He only made a few types of robots, but they are more potent than a number of previous models. Probably because Sonic caught him early, the Death Egg isn't working properly yet, but it's still in space and soon ready to fire! But how much longer can the doc keep fighting for? He's into his fifties. He's been trying to defeat Sonic for 20 years with ZERO success.
Panic the Wolf himself appears in Aquatic Archway Zone, to tell the player an interesting fact. Radiation the Hedgehog also makes an appearance in the Top-Top-Top-Secret Zone. I doubt you'll ever actually find the place.
The gameplay is the classic style, with basic controls. The enemies and bosses are also like those found in a 90's Sonic the Hedgehog game. The game has been criticized due to the levels being very short. This is due to the fact that the slopes work poorly and a long level would either be very linear or too glitchy. Other aspects of the game that differ from basic Sonic gameplay are the message boxes and the chaos bullet attack. There are also the cheats to turn invisible or turn into Mario. These were simply added for fun and serve no practical purpose. As with a few other games, there are two endings. The official good ending can only be reached if the player got all of the emeralds in the game. After this ending, the player is taken to the level select, where they can replay from anywhere in the game. There is also a way into a very secret area. It's so secret, all that may be said is - you'll know it if you're there.
- There WILL be a sequel. It will have fewer levels, but they will be longer and better.
- In the demo version, the good ending plays and has several differences: a 1-up monitor in place of a palm tree, all incarnations of Metal Sonic hiding in the foliage, and Shadow the Hedgehog at the base of the hollow tree, below a sign with his name.
