Find Available Sonic Games Online

By Simon Smith

Sonic Colors has taken the speedy blue hero out from the depths of mediocrity and given it a new boost of life. Before this, most new instalment were met with near derision by a fanbase that seemed to crave the magic of the classic 2D games. This has led to some fans putting their own Sonic games online.

One of the most popular of these games is Sonic Ultimate Flash by Dennis Gid. This game attempts to recreate the feeling of the classic 2D games, as well as some recent ones such as the Sonic Advance series, by using flash. There are things that are heavily reminiscent throughout the application, starting with the first level, Leaf Forest. The look of this level reminds you of Green Hill Zone from the first instalment featuring the blue hedgehog, a palm tree beach level that has become a staple of this franchise ever since.

These levels are generally pleasing to the eye and simple enough that the player can get used to the dynamics of the game without losing lots of lives in the process. As this is the speedy blue spiky-furred critter, the level set up of these initial stages are generally set up to exercise the speed of the main character, before the more complex platforming of later levels. Sonic Ultimate Flash is no different.

Leaf Forest is a brightly colored induction to a series of nostalgic levels, and it is hard to die here and easy to explore and pick up speed. This is good for anyone who is not familiar with the Sega games, of course, but, really, this game seems to be primarily for fans looking for a bit of nostalgia.

The levels progress in a way that continues this, although it becomes apparent that the game mirrors Sonic Advance 2 more that it does the games from the early nineties. This is not ever such a problem since the Advance series in themselves are a call back to those early games. The music is taken from both the Advance games and the Classic games, giving the game a familiar soundtrack alongside those trademark noises that we have come to expect.

Four characters are available to play, and these are the hedgehog, himself, as well as Tails, Knuckles and Cream, and there are two more that can be unlocked. The former two play as you would expect them to, but Cheese, the chao sidekick of Cream, lacks his game breaking powers and Knuckles does not glide or climb. Other than that, though, it is probably as close to an authentic Sega game as you are going to find, online.

There is also a common theme in fan made projects of combining two or more different franchises. Of course, this means that there is a trend for placing Sonic into the world of his one time rival, Mario, and vice versa. In Sonic Lost In Mario World, the blue hedgehog is, well, lost in the world of Mario. He is no longer jumping on animal powered robots, but the mushroom-like goombas, and he is not fighting an egg shaped scientist but the turtle-like koopas. He also now collects coins instead of rings. It is simple, but the speed works surprisingly well in this world.

As well as the Mario crossovers, you will find things like Sonic in Pacman or Final Fantasy, but that will generally be in looks only, with none of the associated gameplay conventions. There are, however, several good examples of Sonic games online.
