Sonic the Hedgehog.
In gameplay, using Flying lets the player to move through the air in any direction with virtually no restrictions. This allows the player to reach higher places that would be otherwise unreachable or to cross gaps and
bottomless pits. However, there is a limit to how long Cream can stay airborne; after flying non-stop for a while, she will become exhausted and slowly drift downward. The move can also not be used underwater. Compared to Propeller Flying, Cream flies faster but not as long or as high.
