Open Sonic

Open Sonic — a two-dimensional platform arcade game about a hedgehog Sonic.

Game Open Sonic was created based on the game Sonic the Hedgehog from Sega. Sonic the Hedgehog was released in 1991 and immediately gained immense popularity, like its main character — sonic the hedgehog. Sonic became popular around the world and is the mascot of Sega.

In Open Sonic you control a blue hedgehog Sonic and have to pass level after level. In addition to control sonic the hedgehog, the player will need to manage two characters — Tails and Niles. So you pass the level three characters, switching between them periodically.

Each of the characters has its own characteristics and capabilities. Sonic himself can run at supersonic speed, Tails can fly, and Niles fight. The levels are organized in such a way that they pass only Sonic will not work. You need to use all the features of the characters.

In contrast to primitive arcade games where the character has to run, jump and avoid enemies in Open Sonic you should periodically interact with the outside world, for example, pushing buttons or moving boxes.

Music, sounds, pixel bright graphics bring you back to the times of dawn consoles Sega Mega Drive. The game evokes nostalgic feelings.

Control is from the keyboard.
The movement of the character — classic arrow keys (Up/Down/Left/Right).
Spacebar — jump
Ctrl — switch to control another character.
In addition, there are special combinations of keys to perform different jumps. About they can learn from the tooltips during the game.

For newcomers the game has a Tutorial mode. It can be invoked from the main menu.

Open Sonic has a built-in level editor, with which you can create your own unique levels. Using scripts you can create game elements and enemies.

The game is available for Linux, Windows and MacOS.
