Sonic Mania is a platform developed by the PagodaWest Games studio and published by Sega, one of the most popular of its kind. From other productions in this genre, it distinguishes it from the enormous speeds achieved by characters running through full color levels. Sonic Mania is a classic two-dimensional platform-based PC game that returns to the roots of the hugely popular Sonica hedgehog series, launched in 1991 at the Sega Genesis console. Sega’s traditional gameplay is a result of the collaboration between two studios, Headcannon and PagodaWest Games.
Description of the game
The developer team also included Christian Whitehead and Simon Thomley, having his own port of classic Sonica hits and numerous fan games. Sonic Mania was officially announced during the Comic-Con 2016, where the 25th anniversary of the title character was celebrated during the special event. After many experiments to refresh the formula of the series, Sonic Mania is a return to the classic cycle formula in the literal sense. This production is a two-dimensional, side-scrolling platformer, in which, as Sonic himself and his two faithful friends: Tails and Knuckles, we go through different levels, filled with traps of masses, enemies and heroes. The interesting fact is that, apart from the completely new, specially developed for the needs of Sonic Manii stages, the game also included remixed levels from the first series, such as Green Hill Zone from the original Sonic the Hedgehog of 1991. In the game, however, there was no modification of the original mechanics.
Story of game
In addition to the well-known classic moves such as spin attack and spin dash, Sonic Manii also features a new maneuver called drop dash that allows you to roll into a ball directly after the jump. In addition, the game has a series of golden rings, which provide partial damage protection and unlock special bonus stages. Released on the Windows PC platform, Sonic Mania refers to the classic parts of the series not only in terms of luminaire but also mechanics. Despite the great possibilities of modern PCs and consoles of the eighth generation, the game has a strong old-fashioned graphics, styled for the Sega Genesis console. This formula is a tribute to the most loyal fans of the cycle and a special attempt to pay tribute to its classic and highly rated hits. Sonic Mania is announced in July this year the latest installment of the famous series, which decided to return this time to the roots and the whole. The game basically shows what we could see in the first and best parts of Sonic the Hedgehog. So it will be a good jump off of the recent, usually unsuccessful three-dimensional return of Sonic. The following gameplay from Sonic Mania shows the familiar to all the hedgehog fans of Green Hill.
As promised, we get old steps, but modified, so watch carefully. At the very end of the board, the boss battle, which was not in the original version of the first Sonic. On the other foot we have a look at the completely new world Studiopolis Zones. Sonic Mania is not only improved old content, but also completely new levels! Sonic Mania will debut next spring on PC and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. SEGA announced one more game with this hero, without giving away too much detail on her. But there is a trailer that brings some good news. The title will be the same as the developers themselves who have created some of the best Sonica hits in recent years. Speaking of Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations. The upcoming title promises to be really interesting and will tell you about the world destroyed by the main enemy of the super-fast hedgehog Doctor Eggman. When the sky was dark, everyone was waiting for the hero’s return, but even he … sometimes needs help. Here is a nice surprise – the untitled new project will once again welcome Sonic in two forms, just like we had in Sonic Generations, the more modern and classic, yet tiny little horn. This may mean that, like in Generations, we get two types of boards: three-dimensional and those in which we move only left or right. Who knows, maybe the SEGA will surprise something completely new and we will get a double co-operation, for example? We have not met the details yet. This Sonic will appear next year and interestingly, we will also play it on Nintendo NX. In addition to this traditionally, namely PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
