I love endless running saga games because I am always curious about how high I can get my high score and how many obstacles I can overcome. The fact that I am a Sonic the Hedgehog fan meant this game was perfect for me. Find out why I love this game in this review.

Graphics / Sound: 5/5
The graphics on this free to get the app are stunning. They bring Sonic to life, and the clarity is just amazing. Although the graphics lie on the cartoon side, I think it perfectly suits the genre of the game. The sound is also excellent and clear. I also like the sounds Sonic makes when he gets hit or caught since they make the game lively and interesting.
Interface and Controls: 5/5
This game has a very user-friendly interface. The user interface is responsive and has minimal interface chrome with all the content at the front and centre for easy access. The controls are also perfect. They are straightforward, and conveniently located at the bottom of the screen for easy access and no obstruction when you are playing the game.
The gameplay of this app lives up to the game’s name by being super fast. Sonic runs automatically, and it is your job to direct him to ensure he does not hit obstacles. You also have to help Sonic not be captured by the enemy and run as far as he can for a high score. In this App Store and Google Play app for endless running, Sonic has a number of fantastic abilities. He can jump over barriers; speed around loops and most importantly use his devastating homing attack on the enemy. Sonic is not the only character you get to play in this game. You can choose to play with his friends like Knuckles, Shadow, and Tails. In addition to this, the game has different features that give you an advantage such as power-ups which help you run further, head starts, ring magnets and shields among other things. This gives you an advantage against Sonic’s enemies.
There are a number of things you will have to purchase to access in both the iOS and Google Android version. These include a breeze bundle that goes for $3.99, a booster bundle that goes for $6.99 and a breakout bundle that goes for $3.99. In my opinion, these are all really affordable, and the great thing is that you can do without them if you wish. It will not affect your game.
This iPhone and Android app is exciting. I play it countless times just to beat my previous high score and that of my friends and relatives. It gets quite competitive, and it is very addictive. I have no doubt that you will get addicted as well.
