Sonic Mania is a celebration, a digitized block party of blistering speeds and bright worlds. Sega’s decision to hand their famous mascot over to fan creators and artists has paid massive dividends, creating a game that is not just a welcome return to form but a raucous, delightful experience.
Announced this evening at a special event during San Diego Comic-Con, Sonic Mania back goes back to Sonic the Hedgehog’s roots again, only this time Sega’s got some top-tier retro talent coming with.
A new trailer appears for PagodaWest Games' Sonic-inspired iOS platformer, Major Magnet, making me wonder if maybe this new hero is the offspring of two older ones. Could Sonic and Robotnik have a baby?
Check out this screenshot for Major Magnet, an iOS platformer hitting iTunes on January 10. What does it remind you of? Can you imagine a blue hedgehog with red shoes running around on it?
