Game: Sonic CD
Start Date: April 5th, 2016
Sonic Boom! Sonic Boom! Sonic Boom! It’s time to save the world from disaster! Not long after the creation of Sonic the Hedgehog 1, two different teams went off to work on two Sonic games. The first team worked on Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which was already a pretty solid investment. The second team worked on this game, Sonic CD for the Sega CD. While this game was still essentially a Sonic game at heart, it had some pretty interesting twists and some unique mechanics on its own. Because the Sega CD was such a novelty and rare system though, most people didn’t get to play it until it started getting released on modern systems via collection discs or on online platforms like Steam. I think it’s great they decided to do this so this gem from Sega’s history wouldn’t be forgotten.
At the end of Sonic 3D Blast, I mentioned that there was one more Sonic game I wanted to cover before making my trip to the 3D Sonic Realm, and that was this game. The only problem though is that I hadn’t played this game yet and wouldn’t play it until this year when I finally felt it was time. I had a good time playing it my first few practice files and thought it made a pretty good playthrough as well.
