Sonic the Hedgehog™

Who doesn’t know about Sega’s blue colored hero, Sonic the Hedgehog? Sonic the Hedgehog revolutionized the video gaming industry. It is one of the all-time best selling video game series released by Sega. The series began in 1991 with the release of the arcade game Sonic the Hedgehog.

Sonic the Hedgehog™ is a 1991 platform arcade video game and is the first installment in Sega’s flagship “Sonic the Hedgehog” video game series. All games in the series feature a blue hedgehog named Sonic as the central player character and protagonist. The games detail Sonic and his allies’ attempts to save the world from various threats, primarily the evil genius Dr. Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik—the main antagonistic of the series. Robotnik’s aim is to rule the Earth, and to achieve this he usually attempts to eliminate Sonic and to acquire the powerful Chaos Emeralds.

The Gameplay

The gameplay of the game involves the player controlling the character of Sonic the Hedgehog. In the game, Sonic must prevent Doctor Robotnik from collecting the six Chaos Emeralds in an attempt to rule South Island. The player controls Sonic as he traverses six zones, each of which is split into three “Acts.” At the end of the third act of each zone, the player faces Dr. Robotnik in one of his vehicles.

The gameplay centers on Sonic’s ability to run at high speeds with levels that include springs, slopes, high falls, and loop-de-loops. Hazards the player experiences include a wide variety of badniks—animals trapped inside mechanical bodies. The player must also avoid rows of sharp spikes, bottomless pits, and other obstacles.


Scattered around each level are gold rings. Collecting 100 rings rewards the player with an extra life. Rings act as a layer of protection against hazards as long as Sonic is holding at least one ring, dropping them if he is hit by an obstacle or enemy. Shields and temporary invincibility can also be collected in order to provide additional layers of protection.

Difficulty Levels

There are six zones, each split into three acts. The game ends when the player loses all of the lives available.

Interface and control

The interface and controls are very easy. Use the arrow keys for navigation and the control button to perform other actions.

Sonic the Hedgehog™ is a revolutionary game. Its graphics and gameplay set it apart from other arcade games.
