How far can the world's fastest hedgehog run?


— Description

Sonic Dash is a video game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is an endless runner mobile game developed by SEGA HARDlight and released by Sega in 2013. As with most games of the genre, Sonic Dash has gameplay based off of that of Temple Run, in which the player controls various Sonic the Hedgehog characters while racing across various locations of the series and fighting bosses.

Sonic Dash received mixed-to-positive reviews, praising the gameplay mechanics and beautiful graphics, but criticizing on the game's repetitiveness and frequent crashes. With over 400 million downloads worldwide, Sonic Dash has become the most downloaded Sonic game ever.[1]

A sequel, entitled Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom, based on the Sonic Boom franchise, was released on Android on 1 July 2015.[2]

Gameplay

Sonic in Seaside Hill Zone, as of version 4.19.1.

Sonic Dash is an endless runner; it is very similar to the gameplay of the Temple Run and Subway Surfers video games.[3] The player directs their selected character through never-ending 3D Zones with three different spaces, moving forward at all times. The goal is simply to run as far as possible.

The tracks in Sonic Dash are full of obstacles the player has to avoid. To avoid obstacles in the character's path, they can Jump, Roll, and use the Quick Step. Some obstacles that can be found include bottomless pits and Badniks, the latter of which can be destroyed with a Roll. Some bottomless pits can be very large and extend towards the three spaces. In these sections, the camera will move much more slowly and the character will have to Homing Attack their way through some Choppers that will appear.

Rings play a critical role in the game. Like most other Sonic games, they can be collected across the tracks and can be used as currency in the main menu or as a method of protection in the Zones themselves. When Rings are collected, the Dash Meter at the bottom of the screen fills, and when it is full, the player can perform the Dash Boost, in which the character automatically blasts through obstacles. When the character hits a Badnik without Rolling, a Bomb or a set of spikes, while carrying at least one single Ring; the player will lose all of their Rings, making them vulnerable to obstacles of the same kind. Touching those same obstacles without having a single Ring will end the game. However, Rings cannot protect the player from most obstacles such as pits. In addition to the normal Rings, the player can encounter Red Star Rings, albeit very rarely. These are purely for currency, and do not play the same role Rings go within the game.

At certain points, the player will encounter three different Springs with screens above them. Once they touch a Spring, the character will have all of their Rings banked automatically, and they will have to perform a certain combination of four tricks by sliding their finger towards a requested direction, akin to Trick Actions. Doing so successfully will award the player ten, twenty, thirty, fifty, or even one-hundred Rings, though ten and twenty Rings are by far the most common. Failing to perform the tricks, however, will not award the player any Rings and leave them vulnerable to certain obstacles until they find Rings. In addition, touching the Springs will affect the game depending on the screen they have, and thus can send the player to another Zone, add loops and corkscrews to the Zone they are in, or fight a boss.

As the player progresses, they will be able to collect Animals, which are obtained by destroying Badniks. Once the game ends, the player will be able to claim the collected Animals and use them to unlock new buildings to construct throughout the Zones. These buildings, however, can only be completed by collecting Gems through a variety of means. As the player completes the Zone, a gauge will be steadily filled and grant them different awards and a character when filled. In addition, certain characters are able to double the amount of certain Animals they have collected to make it easier for the player to unlock new buildings.

In addition to the standard game, the player can equip their character with different Boosters and power-ups to collect points more easily. These Boosters are obtained through certain means, and can be equipped on the title screen. In addition, when the game starts, the player can use a Headstart or a Super Headstart to boost through the Zone for a short period of time, akin to the normal Dash Boost.

High Scores

Sonic Dash features a high score listing in which the players can get themselves on. This list includes default high scores for the characters that appear in this game, with Sonic acting as the player. As the player closes in on one of the default high scores during a run, a countdown appears on the side of the screen that shows how many points are left before the player beats the character's high score.

Development

In a November 2012 interview with the UK toy trade magazine, Toys 'n' Playthings, Sega Europe employee Sissel Henno confirmed that Sega would have "several new digital titles" in 2013.[6] On 28 February 2013, the title Sonic Dash was spotted on a listing from a LinkedIn profile.[7] On 1 March 2013, Sega confirmed the game,[8] with an official press release going out on 4 March.[9] The game was announced to be on iOS, while the Android version would exist only in rumors that it would be ported since SEGA HARDlight's Chris Southall said it would remain a possibily. It would be difficult to port the flexible iOS Unity 3D engine into Android, similarly to the experienced problem of porting Temple Run and its sequel. In addition, Android development also took a long time because of newer devices requiring testing and development before getting it released.[10]

On 19 September 2013, the official Sonic the Hedgehog Facebook page announced that Sonic Dash might come out on the Android "soon," with a tentative date of fall 2013.[11] However, SEGA HARDlight's Facebook warned players that there was a fake version that was not developed by themselves.[12]

Soundtrack

The soundtrack of Sonic Dash consists of remixes and reused tracks from past games for the most part. The theme that plays in the main menu, for example, is a remix of the track that plays in Blue Sky Zone in Sonic Jump and Sonic Jump 2; while the track that plays in Seaside Hill Zone, Beach Zone, Green Hill Zone, and Temple Zone is a remix of "STAGE 1 : SEASIDE HILL", the theme of Seaside Hill from Sonic Heroes. The tracks that have been reused from past games are:


Release

Sonic Dash was first released on 7 March 2013 for iOS phones with costing $1.99 in the United States and £1.49 in the United Kingdom. Since 29 March 2013, it can be downloaded for free. It was later released on 26 November 2013 for the Android on Google Play. At its release, the Android version was caught up with the then-current iOS version, having all of the features the iOS version currently has except for the iOS-exclusive Game Center. On 11 March 2014, the game was released for Android devices on the Amazon App Store.

On 3 December 2014, Sonic Dash was released for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8.1. It has every feature of the Android and iOS versions except for recording gameplays and Google Play Games/Game Center.

Sonic Dash has received mixed to positive reception, holding a score of 69% on review aggregator Metacritic based on 26 reviews.[16] In the Apple App Store, the game holds a score of 4.6 out of 5 based on ~20000 ratings.[25] Much of the game has been praised for its graphics and other controls. But its in-app purchases, according to Destructoid,[17] range from "not needed" to "pretty damn annoying."

IGN gave it a 6.1 out of 10, praising its gameplay and controls but criticizing its "pay-to-win elements" and the amount of "unavoidable deaths."[22] According to Eurogamer, "The randomly-generated zones are filled with classic obstacles and enemies zooming towards you at an ever faster rate, and are showed off by some fantastic camerawork as Sonic zooms through long, twisting paths and loops. Rings are everywhere, which protect Sonic from a single enemy hit but not a collision, and can be 'banked' between zones to gradually level up the hog," although it finds "the entire game is framed and ultimately spoiled by in-app purchases," referring to the aggressive use of in-app purchases in the game.[19]

Sonic Dash has reached over 100 million downloads since August 2015,[26] making the Sonic series continue to break records for the Sega Networks division. All together, the Sonic franchise alone has reached over 143.5 million total downloads on mobile devices.[27] On 16 September 2021, the game passed the 500 million downloads milestone.[28]

Trivia

  • When the game was first released, there were only four characters available; Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy.
  • In earlier versions of the game, every playable character had the same trick set as Sonic and Tails currently have.
    • Additionally, every character shared the same upgrades.
  • In one major update, a day-night cycle was added, progressing through noon, sunset, night, and dawn. The time of day would progress a phase each time a Spring was hit to go to the next area.
    • This feature was removed in a later update. Following this, every location was locked to noon, except Mushroom Hill Zone, which was always at sunset. Temple Zone was formerly locked to night but in version 4.9.0, it was turned to noontime.
  • When Zazz was first introduced, the player could attack him during the attack phase without waiting for reticles to match, as that mechanic was added in a later update.
  • Five global challenges with new game characters as star prizes were later added.
    • Shadow was added on 18 July 2013 as the star prize of the first global challenge, which ended at 3 August 2013.
    • Blaze was added on 26 September 2013 as the star prize of the second global challenge, which ended at 6 October 2013.
    • Silver was added on 24 December 2013 as the star prize of the Christmas Festive challenge, which ended at 6 January 2014.
    • Rouge was added on 20 February 2014 as the star prize of the fifth global challenge, which ended at 3 March 2014.
    • Cream was added on April 24, 2014 as the star prize of the Easter Festive challenge, which ended at 5 May 2014.
      • The third global challenge is the only global challenge to not have a new character as the star prize. Instead, the star prize was five wallpapers based off of the game Sonic Lost World.
        • The Global Challenge menu was removed in v2.0.
  • Before it was removed in v2.0, the shop area had a Sonic Riders model of the Blue Star, a Red Star Ring, a promotional Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) Tails poster, and Sonic's gloves and shoes can be seen.
  • For iOS, the minimum device required to play this game at an acceptable speed is one with an Apple A5 CPU or newer (The A5 CPU is used on the iPad 2, the iPhone 4S, the fifth Generation iPod Touch and the iPad Mini). On older devices, the game is unplayable due to very low frame rate, and certain graphics are disabled, such as the coral reef seen in the water.
    • On Android, Google Play automatically checks on the device for compatibility in order for the phone/tablet to play Sonic Dash. If any of the phones' requirements are not succeeded, it won't be able to download Sonic Dash from Google Play. That doesn't mean that said device cannot run the game.[29]
  • At the game's release in March 2013, Red Star Rings were extremely rare and could not be found during gameplay. Instead, they were given three at a time to the player after completing a set of three missions and in special circumstances. Prior to the game's newer updates, the only other way to obtain them is through in-app purchases, a requirement met with much controversy.
    • However, the Daily Challenges rewards players the chance to win five Red Star Rings on the second day, ten Red Star Rings on the fourth day, and twenty Red Star Rings on the fifth day if the player can select its prize during the quick raffle. As of recent updates, the Daily Challenges rewards players 5 Red Star Rings on the fourth day and ten Red Star Rings during the fifth day if the player gains it during the quick raffle.
  • The achievement "Espio Is Cleary Ready To Go" references one of the lyrics in the song "Team Chaotix" from Sonic Heroes.
  • The achievement "Running Miles", which focuses on Tails, references the character's real name, Miles.
    • Another achievement in particular, "Miles Per Hour", which is also centered on Tails, is a reference to the unit of speed of the same name, which Tails' full name, Miles Prower, derives from.
  • Sonic, Knuckles, Blaze, Silver, and Espio share the same running style.
    • However, Silver's Dash is different from the other four, being more similar to Shadow's Dash.
  • Tails, Rouge, Charmy, and Metal Sonic are the only characters who fly instead of run.
  • Andronic and Android Robot are the only characters not to be included across all types of devices.
    • Additionally, Android Robot is the only character to be removed from the game. He cannot be loaded up on later versions even with hacking.
      • Despite this, his full body portrait still exists in the game's code.
  • Because of their designs, Red, Chuck and Bomb are the only characters who move by hopping, rather than running.
  • The bosses and the Angry Birds are the only characters in the game with voice clips.
  • This the first game to feature Espio as a playable character since Sonic Rivals 2.
  • The character select artwork for Amy and Rouge was changed in v2.0.
  • By the time the Angry Birds Epic event was taking place, there was a Sonic Dash event in said game. In it, the player could use Sonic alongside the Angry Birds. The event took place at Seaside Hill, and the enemies, rather than pigs, were Badniks.
  • During the period when the Sanrio characters were available, the Sonic the Hedgehog series held a cross-promotion in which the Sanrio characters were sold as plushes in Sonic styled costumes; My Melody as Amy, Badtz-Maru as Knuckles, Chococat as Tails, and Hello Kitty as both Sonic and Super Sonic.
  • The amount of cartridges that was needed to unlock Classic Sonic (623) is a reference to 6/23, or 23 June, the release date of the original Sonic the Hedgehog.
  • PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN were introduced as playable characters for the celebration of the fifth anniversary for Sonic Dash. Bash was made exclusively for the game to represent the series.
    • During the period PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN were available characters, the Sonic series received a level pack in the mobile version of PAC-MAN as part of a cross-promotion.
    • When using PAC-MAN or Ms. PAC-MAN, the sound effects of the game change to ones from the original Pac-Man and Ms. PAC-MAN games.
      • Upon PAC-MAN's starting run, the music when beginning a game of the original PAC-MAN game plays. For Ms. PAC-MAN, the beginning jingle from her debut game will play instead.
      • When defeating Ghosts (with or without the Dash), the sound effect when they eat the ghosts in Blue Mode in the original games is played.
      • Collecting a PAC-MAN bonus item mimics the same sound when PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN collect them in their original games.
      • When using the Dash, the effects when PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN use a Power Pellet in their original games is heard.
        • All the Ghosts enter into their Blue Mode states.
      • When the character loses a run, the failure theme from the original PAC-MAN game plays.
      • If the character revives, it will play the Continue jingle from the original PAC-MAN games.
  • Jet is the only character that rides an Extreme Gear instead of running.
  • With the addition of Tangle and Whisper, this is the first time in which characters from a comic adaptation have been playable in a Sonic game.
    • According to Ian Flynn, this is because Sega owns the characters from the IDW comic series, thus making it possible to use them in games.[30]
    • This is also the first game to feature characters from other continuities at all since Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut in 2003.
    • Interestingly enough, Amy and Charmy actually made their first appearances in the Sonic the Hedgehog manga series published by Shogakukan. However, Amy was originally conceptualized for the video games before her manga debut.[31]
  • Treasure Hunter Knuckles' hat is based on the one his counterpart wears in Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie.
  • Elite Agent Rouge's artwork shares the same pose as Rouge's artwork for Sonic Heroes.
  • Besides Sonic himself, Bongo is the only character who requires no effort to unlock, as he was unlocked automatically once the player first opened the game during the period the Danimals promotion was active.
  • Linebacker Omega is the first event-exclusive character that is based on a Sonic game character without the base character being included in the actual game beforehand.
