Sonic is transformed once again into an enjoyable 3D game
Sonic 3D Blast is a faithful emulation of the original Sega game. You will of course remember Sonic, the cool blue porcupine, who has to run around in a 3D world to collect rings, kill robots by jumping over their heads and, most important of all, gathering up the furry animals you meet during the game to free them.
When you have collected five of them, you’ll need to run in the big teleport ring, which will bring you to the next level, of which there are fourteen. As you proceed through the game you might also encounter Knuckles and Tails, the other two well-known characters of the story, which will bring you to bonus stage for extra ring-points.
Although it’s a classic game, it will take you a while to get use to the 3D movements if you are used to play to the 2D version. The playability is good, and it’s a good game for passing some time, whose 3D fluidity reminds you of Marble Madness.
If you were a fan of Sonic, it’s worth trying this 3D adventure, which, although isn’t exactly cutting-edge, is still an entertaining game which will help you roll back the years.
