Gameplay and Features




Endless Running with a Sonic Twist




Sonic Runners was a side-scrolling endless runner game in which the player-character was constantly running forward. To avoid obstacles and defeat enemies, the character jumped when the player tapped the touchscreen. The game featured a wide variety of playable characters from the cast of the Sonic franchise with unique abilities, such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower, and Knuckles the Echidna. The player started as Sonic and would unlock more characters as they progressed.


The goal was to obtain high scores by running for as long as possible. While running, the player ran through vertical loops and jumped in cannons and on springboards and platforms. They collected power-ups like invincibility, Wisps, rings, and crystals. Wisps granted the player temporary powers, rings protected them from getting hit by enemies or obstacles, and crystals increased their score. When the player passed a checkpoint, the rings were banked and added to their overall score. The player would occasionally engage in boss fights with Doctor Eggman, who would drop objects to stop them.


Characters and Abilities




The game featured over 30 playable characters from the Sonic series, each with their own abilities and stats. The characters were divided into three types: Speed, Fly, and Power. Speed characters could perform a triple jump that allowed them to reach higher places. Fly characters could fly for a short time after jumping. Power characters could break through obstacles with their dash attack.

Development and Reception




Sonic Team's First Mobile Exclusive Game




Sonic Runners was developed by Sonic Team, the same studio that created the main Sonic games for consoles and PC. It was their first attempt to make a Sonic game exclusively for mobile devices, as they wanted to reach a wider audience and experiment with new gameplay ideas. The game was directed by Takashi Iizuka, the head of Sonic Team, and produced by Yosuke Okunari, who also worked on Sonic Generations and Sonic Lost World. The game was designed to be simple and accessible, but also challenging and rewarding for hardcore fans. The game also featured original music composed by Tomoya Ohtani, who composed the soundtrack for Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Colors.


Critical and Commercial Response




Sonic Runners was released worldwide on June 25, 2015, after a soft launch in Japan and Canada in February and March respectively. The game was free to download and play, but it also offered in-app purchases for premium currency, items, and characters. The game received mixed reviews from critics and players, who praised its graphics, music, gameplay, and variety of characters, but criticized its technical issues, repetitive stages, intrusive ads, and unfair monetization system. The game had over 10 million downloads as of December 2015, but it also suffered from declining revenue and player retention. According to Sega's financial reports, the game was not profitable enough to justify its continued operation.


Reasons for Discontinuation




On May 27, 2016, Sega announced that Sonic Runners would be discontinued on July 27, 2016. The game was removed from the app stores on July 27, and the servers were shut down on July 31. Sega cited "various circumstances" as the reason for the decision, but did not elaborate further. Many fans and developers were disappointed and saddened by the news, as they enjoyed the game and hoped for more updates and improvements. Some speculated that the game was shut down due to its poor performance, technical issues, or legal problems with Apple or Google. However, Sega never confirmed or denied any of these theories. Revival and Legacy




Sonic Runners Revival Project




Despite the official closure of Sonic Runners, some fans did not give up on the game. A group of dedicated fans, led by a user named DarkyBenji, started a project to revive the game online with a custom server. The project, called Sonic Runners Revival, was launched in August 2016, and allowed players to download and play the game on their devices with some modifications. The project also added new features and perks to the game, such as:


  • Removing ads and premium currency



  • Unlocking all characters and items for free



  • Fixing bugs and glitches



  • Improving performance and compatibility
