 Sonic Dash – Review

The sonic dash game is modern 3D and infinite running avatar of the classic platformer. Your basic aim in the game is to run as long as possible while the track gets faster and trickier to navigate. Your objective is to collect as many coins as possible while running and not getting yourself killed. The coins are either normal golden in color or red – which usually carries special powers.

The environment is based on Lost Shores level from Sonic Adventure and it has many of the villains from the classic series. Apart from this standard affair, with coins you can help sonic upgrade his powers and race better. While there is no cooperative multi-player sessions, you can definitely compare your scores online and see who tops the charts. The visuals are ramped up and resemble more like modern 3D environments and less like 8-bit graphics, also, the sound track is catchy initially but slowly fades off as you keep on playing.
