All about Sonic the Hedgehog Games
Sonic the Hedgehog is a collection of video games released by Sega Corporation. The video game series is named after the company’s mascot, Sonic the Hedgehog. Its first video game, which was then in 8-bit format, was first introduced to the market in 1991. This game was the one responsible for the popularity of the company. Due to its prominence, it was later adapted into anime and comic series.
During its early days, a special group was created to work on the development of this video game series. They called this group as the Sonic Team which was also the one in-charge with the other franchises that followed its first release.
Here are the list of the different titles and storylines that Sega Corporation has developed over time in relation to the creation of their most successful video game, Sonic the Hedgehog:
This is the first of the Sonic series of video games. Its story is all about the lead character, Sonic, who needs to stop Dr. Eggman Robotnik, the antagonist, from his evil plans of collecting the chaos emeralds and achieving world dominance. In the game, the player gets to control Sonic and needs to go through six different zones where each zone contains three different acts. During every third act, the player needs to face Dr. Robotnik in one of his vehicles.
This game centers on the ability of the main character to jump, run, and roll at great speed. The zones consist of plains, slopes, springs, high falls, and other related sceneries that are responsible to increase Sonic’s speed. The ending of every act is signified through the presence of lamp posts. These lamp posts also serve as the marker every time Sonic loses a life. As Sonic loses a life, he starts the round again from the last lamp post he passed through. In the Japanese version of the game, the clock resets to 0:00 every time the character loses a life.
One of the important aspects of the game is called the power rings. These power rings are collected by the player during the game. These power rings help Sonic to keep his one life even if he is injured or harmed. However, if Sonic bumps into an enemy without collecting any power rings, Sonic will die and lose a life. The game ends when all the lives are used up.
No matter what other devices Sonic gathers during the game, there is nothing that can save his life other than the power rings. The shields, invisibility and other protective power cannot really prevent Sonic from losing a life. Once this character falls into a trap, bumps into a moving platform, drowns, consumes the 10-minute limit, or falls in a trench, it immediately loses one life.
The set of obstacles that the player needs to face in every zone includes spikes, death traps, cliffs, drowning, and badniks. With underwater experiences, Sonic only have 30 seconds to stay alive under the water. To extend his life, the player needs to look for air bubbles. Badniks, another obstacle in the game series, are animals trapped in mechanical bodies. Some of them move according to a certain pattern while some are really created to destroy Sonic. Some of them cannot be avoided at all. They can be released from the trap once Sonic hits them and before they hit Sonic back.
