The original Sonic the Hedgehog game used only one button. I think that its simple yet exhilarating gameplay was its virtue.
And given that this game’s controls are also simple, I think it personifies his distinctive characteristics.
Side Special Move: Spin Dash
Yeah, you have to have this.
Hop into a supersonic Spin Dash. If you charge it up just a bit, your speed will increase.
It’s also possible to rise up while spinning.
Spin Dash, jump. A two-hit combo.
Then keep pursuing with a mid-air attack!
And do a Spin Dash in mid-air to return.
Down Special Move: Spin Charge
By holding the Control Stick down and tapping the special-move button, you charge up your spin and do a Spin Dash. This may feel better for some, as there’s no jump.
Up Special Move: Spring Jump
And his up special move is the Spring Jump. That spring launches you waayyy up in the air.
You might not use it on the ground much, but rumour has it that if you do, the spring that remains can be used by other characters.
Ah! It’s true.
