You people may recognize the names of the last few places I mentioned in my list as levels in Sonic Unleashed. I almost facepalmed when I saw that someone thought they were levels named after real places like China and the Antarctic. So how does Sonic Adventure fit in with the whole “Sonic on Earth” thing. Well remember back to me saying Station Square, Westopolis, and GUN. GUN first appeared in Sonic Adventure, where one of the areas to explore in that game was the Angel Island and the level Ice Cap, and it would seem Station Square is set in the America counterpart Westopolis.
It’s clear to see why Generations didn’t make it to a non-HD console like the Wii. Colors are vibrant, the backdrops are so stunning it’s almost distracting and all other effects only add to the amount of eye-candy for the game. There are nine levels for the game representing each of Sonic’s main releases over the past 20 years. Each level is split into Act 1, which is played with Classic Sonic, and Act 2, which is played with Modern Sonic. That makes for a total of 18 levels, not including the six mandatory boss fights mid-game, and the final boss.

The story follows Sonic, Knuckles, Amy, and Tails traveling to stop Doctor Robotnik from controlling the world. Characters complete six levels while collecting seven Chaos Emeralds.
What was obviously an answer to Nintendo’s plumbing mascot was actually something entirely different. Unfortunately, due to hiccups and head-scratching development decisions, a lot of fans turned their backs on the blue hedgehog. Mollie got her start in games media via the crazy world of gaming fanzines, and now works at EGM with the goal of covering all of the weird Japanese and niche releases that nobody else on staff cares about.

Sega had previously used Alex Kidd as their mascot, but he was considered too similar to Mario and deemed unsatisfactory. If Sonic reaches the end of any zone’s Act 1 or Act 2 while holding at least 50 rings, a large ring appears through which he can jump to enter a “special stage”. In the Special Stages, Sonic is continually curled up in his Spin Attack animation, and bounces off the bumpers and walls of a fully rotating maze.

Colliding with any of the blocks marked “GOAL” ends the level.

A two-player mode appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 , whereby the second player controls Sonic’s sidekick Miles “Tails” Prower. The sound test was scrapped for time reasons and Naka used the freed up memory to add the “Se-ga!” chant used in TV commercials as a startup sound.
