In this game, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose compete for Olympic medals. There are five events: 1500m Hurdles, 400m Hurdles, Triple Jump, Discus, and Javelin. The game has one-button controls for the events, saves progress automatically, and features varying difficulty levels (Qualifying Round, Heats, Semi Finals, and the Finals). There is a high-scores board that the player can upload their scores to and compare nationally. Points are gathered by finishing an event first and gaining Rings.
- The most likely reason for the Mario franchise characters not appearing in this game is because of Nintendo not making apps for iPhone and other iOS systems at the time.
- There was a sequel for iOS devices titled Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, which also did not feature the Mario characters. The game was withdrawn from the App Store shortly after release.
