You go on a Sonic adventure through the Northstar Islands. Play is like the 90s games although here you can play with other people at the same time, choosing between Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy. There are also new Emerald powers that let you traverse the level and trigger attacks in new ways. Together you take on a challenge to stop Dr. Eggman, Fang, and a new adversary from turning the islands’ giant animals evil.
As you progress you learn how to use the different character's abilities to your advantage. Sonic can roll into a dash after a jump. Tails can fly. Knuckles can glide and climb and Amy Rose can attack enemies with a hammer and double jump. You can also unlock an additional character by completing the game.
The result is a game that's welcoming and approachable while also offering a considerable challenge to those who want to perfect each level.
