Famously exciting and fast-paced, Sonic games take you through various adventures at the speed of light. In this game, you need to save Tokyo and the Olympic games from the evil dr. Eggman.

A three-in-one game

SONIC AT THE OLYMPIC GAMES is a new release of the Sonic game franchise which takes you to Tokyo in the summer of 2020.

There are three main tasks for you to fulfill in this game. One, you'll compete in over 15 Olympic events and win medals. Two, you'll challenge bosses trying to take over Tokyo. Three, you'll get to explore the city's streets with Sonic and his friends.

When it comes to the Olympic events, the game includes 15 most loved ones, from archery to badminton to table tennis, as well as 100m and 400m hurdles.

So, you may tap and flick your way to a medal in older, much-loved disciplines, as well as the surprise newest additions to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Apart from the Olympic events, there are special EX Events, featuring new, exciting gameplay, and yet asking you to do the same thing - go fast, and go for the gold.

While battling bosses across Tokyo, you may also run into extra mini-games to play and earn more points as you go. The graphics are wonderful throughout, taking you through a highly-detailed, vivid map of the city.

You get to see your progress and that of others on the Leaderboard. It's a worldwide competition, which means you get to compare yourself to your friends, or all other players out there.

Where can you run this program?

If you decide to play this game on iOS, you’ll need OS versions 9.0 or later. Android requirements vary per device.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes, if you’re not ready to wait for the new release. Sonic the Hedgehog Classic is the game that started it all, free and optimized for smartphones. Alternatively, Sonic Dash takes you through stunning 3D environments for all ages to enjoy.

Our take

This Sonic release seems more than promising, taking us to a completely new landscape with the old flair for adventure. However, it’s a shame that only the initial Olympic events are free.

Should you download it?

Yes, if you’re a Sonic fan, you should have a lot of fun with this game. However, be ready for in-app purchases.
