Sonic Dash isn't a bad game, but it could stand to be much better than it is in its current state. With more zones and less weighty in-app-purchases by way of an update, Dash could be one of the more enticing endless runners on the market. As it stands, you might find yourself picking this up, and running right past it after a fleeting sense of enjoyment. But said time with it will undoubtedly be enjoyable, nonetheless.

It’s all pleasantly fun, but far from unique. There are brief moments of variety, such as jumps that require the player to swipe up then tap on an enemy to home in on it, or the ability to bank rings after a certain time, but it’s far from amazing. There are classic Sonic moments such as loop the loops to run around and, of course, typical enemies to destroy, but the actual gameplay is pure Temple Run.

Still, we’ve developed something of an old adage around Gamezebo over the past few years: “If the worst thing you can say about a game is that you want more of it, it’s probably a pretty great game.” And not only is Sonic Dash a great game, it’s the best we’ve seen in the genre. By combining the breakneck endless pace of games like Temple Run with Sonic’s old school sense of speed, Sonic Dash manages to champion two things quite well; taking an existing formula and bettering it, and developing a Sonic game that’s finally worthy of the hedgehog’s good name.

Gorgeous and silky smooth it may be, but the level design feels like it was made with in-app Continue purchases specifically in mind, hiding enemies cruelly – and punishingly – behind obstacles, preventing the game from flowing and dazzling as it clearly has the potential to. Accomplished and beautiful, then, but Sonic Dash shows that, for Sega, learning from the competition comes at a price – one it’s passed onto its fans.

Sonic Dash is free right now, so give it a try. Whether or not you'll want to pay more into the game for a coin doubler or currency packs requires almost as little consideration: if you like endless runners, you'll like this one, too.

Sonic Dash isn’t a bad game as an endless runner, but Sonic fans might notice that the game has a certain lack of depth and variety when compared with his more traditional fare, or even other iOS games such as his own Sonic Jump or fellow mascot runner Rayman Jungle Run.

Racing through Sonic Dash’s idyllic locales can be a lot of fun. Sonic rushes through the environment at an appropriately breakneck pace and the swipe controls actually manage to keep up. But the game plays it too safe – there is nothing here that hasn’t been done before. This combined with its pay-to-win leaderboard environment makes Sonic Dash an unexceptional experience.

To be fair, the power-ups (magnet to attract rings, head starts) are quite lazy, considering most running games use similar items. That said, Sonic Dash is a quality experience that no hardcore Sega fan should miss. We can only hope the company adds more locations and perhaps characters throughout the year.

We’re all wondering the same thing: is this game fun? In a word, yes. It’s repetitive, and can get frustrating at times but it is quite enjoyable. Because it’s a one-handed game, I can play while holding a drink or whatever, which I find convenient. Because it’s a quick play, I don’t feel concerned about whether or not I have to leave the game quickly, which happens to me often when I’m at an appointment or something similar. It’s just that kind of fun game.

There is a good game here, and enough nostalgia to mask - for a while at least - the obnoxious shilling. Sega seems to find it hard enough to make a decent Sonic game these days, and then it goes and publishes something like Sonic Dash - which with a little more polish could be great, but is instead rushed and spoiled by greed. I'm sure it will make an awful lot of money. And it also makes you think about how some characters change with the times, while others become also-rans.

This isn't Sonic at his finest, then, but it's by no means Sonic at his most dismal either. There's fun to be had creeping up the leaderboard, and the speed the game plays at means it's a more trying test than a lot of other endless-runners out there. A perfectly playable endless-runner, Sonic Dash is entertaining enough, but highlights how far the series has come since its glory days.

Seguramente los fans del erizo azul esperaban otra clase de título, enmarcado en un plataformas clásico, el género que vio nacer a Sonic y en el que mejor resultados ofrece al seguidor de la mascota de Sega de toda la vida. Aun así, Sonic Dash llega a la AppStore como un endless runner que no logra destacar por encima de la competencia; sí, su presentación es bastante vistosa, muy fiel a la personalidad de la propia franquicia, aunque sus constantes invitaciones a pasar por caja resultan bastante molestas.

Hal yang saya suka dari game ini adalah penggunaan elemen-elemen game klasiknya di Sega dulu sehingga membangkitkan beberapa kenangan seru. Namun sayangnya jenis upgrade dan power ups yang sedikit dan juga harga game juga IAP yang agak mahal mungkin menjadi salah satu penghalang untuk penggemar karakter ini untuk memainkannya. Jika kamu tidak memainkannya waktu di SEGA dulu maka saya bisa bilang game ini aman untuk dilewatkan, tapi jika kamu adalah fans Sonic pada waktu zaman keemasan SEGA dulu maka Rp.
