Sega Mega Drive Sonic the Hedgehog SKUSMD6
Sega Mega Drive Sonic the Hedgehog SKUSMD6 is a platform video game developed by Sonic Team and published by Sega. The game was released in Japan on July 26 1991. It stars Sonic the Hedgehog in a quest to defeat Dr. Robotnik, an evil scientist who has imprisoned animals in robots and stolen the magical Chaos Emeralds. Sonic the Hedgehog ’s gameplay involves collecting rings as a form of health and a simple control scheme, with jumping and attacking controlled by one button.
Gameplay centers around Sonic’s ability to run at high speed through levels incorporating springs, slopes, high falls, and loop-the-loops. The levels contain hazards in the form of robots (“badniks” in the Western game manuals) in which Dr. Robotnik has trapped animals. Although destroying a robot frees the animal within, this is not required to complete the game. The player must avoid rows of sharp spikes, falling into bottomless pits, being crushed by moving walls or platforms, and drowning (which can be avoided by breathing air bubbles periodically released from vents). Sonic’s main attack is his spin, where he curls into a ball and rotates rapidly (damaging enemies and some obstacles). This can be performed by jumping in the air or rolling on the ground.
