The Coleco Sonic is a handheld game console released in 2006 by Coleco, also marketed as PlayPal in Canada and United Kingdom and Pocket Gear in Europe. The series debuted in 1991 with the video game, Sonic the Hedgehog, released for the Mega Drive video game console (named Sega Genesis in North America). While Sega was tweaking the Sonic formula with high-profile home console outings in the mid-'00s, the company placed a bet on this side-scrolling throwback - a throwback that would go on to become one of the series' most celebrated entries. Aquarium Park is arguably the best water level throughout the whole series, Asteroid Coaster is just phenomenal in every aspect, and while it’s heavily on-rails, the sheer spectacle of Starlight Carnival is a sight to behold. The Master System and Game Gear versions of Sonic 1 had hewn fairly close to the Genesis standard, but Sonic 2 on Sega's 8-bit systems bore little comparison to the 16-bit title of the same name.

Moreover, the Nomad was intended to supplement the Game Gear rather than replace it; in press coverage leading up to the Nomad's release, Sega representatives said the company was not dropping support for the Game Gear in favor of the Nomad, and that "We believe the two can co-exist". The Genesis-era Sonic games are well represented on this list for a reason, and each release got better while introducing new playable characters and mechanics. They all sport a familiar control setup, with monochromatic graphics displayed on top of a static, colorful backdrop. Advance Wars is one of the greatest turn-based strategy sims of all time regardless of platform, and there were excellent Zelda, Super Metroid, Castlevania and Super Mario adventures.The early Sonic games had developed a uniquely satisfying rhythm: jump on a few baddies, collect a ring or twenty, then hit a hill and bounce around until you found out whether you were epileptic. It checks all of the boxes, on top of having an impressive soundtrack, great visuals, and smooth gameplay that still holds up to this day.

Most people's best memories of the Sonic franchise concern the old school 2D side-scrollers, not the fancy new 3D action-adventures.Before deciding you've seen all the Sonic the 2D age has to offer, though, spend some time with the 8-bit versions of the series' initial entries. There were more zones, most featuring multiple paths, new enemies, new mechanics, and abilities while keeping true to the essential factor of a Sonic game: you gotta go fast. Critics at the time suggested that Secret Rings might mark a turning-point for the series then ailing fortunes; history and replay value prove them right. If you, like us, are still trying to work out what to make of the iPhoney-looking contraption, consider that SNK's been doing crazy things to portable gaming for years--such as having the first ever Sonic game on a third-party console, 1999's Sonic Pocket Adventure for the Neo Geo Pocket.

Sonic the Hedgehog Pocket Adventure is notably the only Sonic game to this day to mix both the classic Sega Sonic and the modern post- Dreamcast designs. It totally nails that sensation of being the fastest thing alive as you tear through levels leaving a trail of absolute destruction full of crushed boxes, tables, enemies, and more.Developed under the name "Project Mercury", [3] the Game Gear was first released in Japan on October 6, 1990, [4] in North America and Europe in 1991, and in Australia in 1992. But there were good games such as Ashen, Pathway to Glory and Sonic Advance and it also ran an impressive array of retro games emulators. It is published by Sega, with entries developed by Sega, Sonic Team, Traveller's Tales, Dimps, SIMS Co. Likewise, because of this, the Game Gear library contained many games that were not available on other handhelds, pulling sales away from the Atari Lynx and NEC TurboExpress and helping to establish the Game Gear's position in the market.

We tried to rank these games based on a combination of historical significance, innovation, and how well these games stand the test of time. After examining Sonic's long history in Sonic Generations, Sonic Lost World starts a whole new chapter for the Blue Blur - partially by borrowing from Super Mario Galaxy.Besides which, it's worth bearing in mind that the Sonic games take place in a world where animals are always being turned into creepy creatures. For those reasons, Sonic Mania is our pick for the best 2D Sonic game you can play, and it is, wholeheartedly, a Sonic game that every fan should play at least once. Introduces the Chaotix as playable characters: Vector the Crocodile, Espio the Chameleon, Charmy Bee and Mighty the Armadillo. Momentum physics in the game are nearly the same as in earlier games, except that Sonic is slightly heavier. By holding onto fifty Rings at the end of each zone's first Act (including Sky Chase Zone) and leaping into the large ring that appears behind the goal plate, the player can enter one of six Special Stages.
