Sonic is a blue hedgehog who has the unusual ability (for a hedgehog) to run fast. When the evil Dr. Robotnik begins to assimilate all the creatures on the planet into robots, Sonic must use his ability to stop Robotnik. Sonic must battle through 6 zones (3 acts each) and then face off against Robotnik in one final zone. Written by
It's super Sonic!
