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.

Sonic has rescued a lot of small animals, including Flickies, the cute little bird-like creatures that hop around. In this game though, Dr. Robotnik is harnassing the power of the Flickies for his robotic monstrosities, and Sonic is arriving on the scene just in time to rescue them. We must save Flicky Island!

Truth be told, I’m looking forward for the day when I can move on to the 3D Sonic Adventure games, but before I get to that point, there are some games I feel like I need to cover first. Sonic 3D Blast is one of those games, a game that I feel is rather unappreciated from the Sonic fanbase. Maybe not along the same lines as Sonic 2006 or even Sonic Boom (although let’s face it, it takes a lot of bad decisions to make games of that quality), and sure, maybe it’s not as solid as the original trilogy, but I do think there is some fun to be had with this title.

When making the third installment of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Team decided to make a little change that divided the product into two separate games, incorporating a lock-on cartridge for the latter released game that allowed the full game to be played at once. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic & Knuckles together became one of the greatest Genesis combinations, being the introduction of Knuckles the Echidna and some classic Sonic stages.

My first two Sonic playthroughs were the foundation for this playthrough eventually coming to fruition and I was very much looking forward to finally get this going. This is a full playthrough of the Sonic story and the Knuckles story, and I will show off some content from Tails as well.

Dr. Robotnik has returned and Sonic is once again speeding along, this time with his buddy Tails, to stop the evil, mechanical doctor. This Sonic outing features some new worlds, some new challenges, and a brand new power Sonic can unleash upon his foes that is quite…super!

This project was not originally intended for a release as early as this, but due to the demand for it after the Sonic 1 playthrough, I couldn’t help but make the decision to release it a bit earlier than planned. I hope you guys are ready for some more Sonic goodness!

Brought out during a time when Sega was desperately looking for a mascot to compete with Mario, in comes Sonic the Hedgehog, the fastest blue hedgehog you will ever meet! Dr. Robotnik has kidnapped a bunch of wooden creatures and is holding them captive inside his deadly robot machines. Sonic must now put this evil’s doctor’s mischief to rest!

People always pegged me for being a Nintendo-exclusive content creator, but things sure changed when I revealed that I also grew up with Sonic the Hedgehog! Sonic was another series that I spent a lot of time on in my youth and I was more than happy to jump into the territory of Sega and Sonic as well.
