Games Sonic Hedgehog Pc' title='Games Sonic Hedgehog Pc' />Sonic the Hedgehogs gameplay involves collecting rings as a form of health and a simple control scheme, with jumping and attacking controlled by a single button. The games development began in 1. Sega ordered its AM8 development team to create a game featuring a mascot for the company. After considering a number of suggestions, the developers decided on a blue hedgehog with spikes along his head and spine and renamed themselves Sonic Team to match their character. Sonic the Hedgehog, designed for fast gameplay, was influenced by the games of Super Mario series creator, Shigeru Miyamoto. Sonic the Hedgehog uses a novel technique that allows Sonics sprite to roll along curved scenery, which originated in a tech demo created by the games programmer, Yuji Naka. The game was well received by critics, being considered one of the greatest of all time, with praise given to its visuals, audio, and gameplay. It was also commercially successful, establishing the Genesis as a key player in the 1. Nintendo and their Super Nintendo Entertainment System console. The game has been ported a number of times, and inspired several clones, a successful franchise, and adaptations into other media. GameplayeditSonic the Hedgehog is a 2. Dside scrollingplatformer. The gameplay centers around Sonics ability to run at high speed through levels that include springs, slopes, bottomless pits, and vertical loops. The levels are populated with hazards in the form of robots inside which Dr. Robotnik has trapped animals. Destroying a robot frees the creature, but is not necessary to complete the game. The player must also avoid touching spikes, falling into bottomless pits, and being crushed by moving walls or platforms, as well as drowning, which may be prevented by breathing air bubbles from vents. Sonics main means of attack is the Spin Attack, in which he curls into a ball and rotates, damaging enemies and certain obstacles upon collision. This may be performed by jumping or by rolling on the ground. At the start of the game, the player is given three lives, each of which may be lost if Sonic collides with hazardous enemies or objects while in possession of no rings, falls to the bottom of the level screen, or exceeds an acts ten minute time limit. Signposts that act as checkpoints allow Sonic to return to the most recently activated post when he loses a life. If Sonic loses a life as a result of time running out but has another, the time will reset when he returns to the checkpoint. If all lives are lost, the Game Over screen will appear,7 at which point the player may return to the beginning of the act with three lives if the player has any continues. Scattered around each level are gold rings. Collecting 1. Rings act as a layer of protection against hazards if Sonic holds at least one ring when he collides with an enemy or dangerous obstacle, he will survive. However, all rings in his possession will be scattered they flicker and disappear in a few seconds if not picked up again. If he is hit without holding any rings, he loses a life. Shields and temporary invincibility can be collected to provide additional layers of protection, but certain hazards, such as drowning, being crushed, falling down a bottomless pit or running out of time, will cause Sonic to lose a life regardless of rings or other protection. The main body of the game is split into six principal zones, followed by a short Final Zone. Each main zone has its own visual style, and while some enemies appear throughout the game, each zone has enemies and obstacles unique to it alone. Each main zone is split into three acts,13 all of which must be completed by the player. At the end of each main zones third act, the player confronts Dr. Robotnik for a boss fight. For most of the fights, Robotniks vehicle is fitted with different weapons. After completing the sixth zone, the player continues directly to the single level Final Zone for a last encounter with Robotnik inside a large machine environment. Destroying Robotniks machine ends the game. A brief animation shows Sonics return to the games first zone, with animals liberated from Robotnik. When Sonic reaches the end of Act 1 or Act 2 of a zone while holding at least 5. Special Stage. In the Special Stages, Sonic is continually curled up in his Spin Attack animation, and bounces off the bumpers and walls of a fully rotating maze. In these levels, the player earns a continue with each 5. Chaos Emerald hidden within the maze. Colliding with any of the blocks marked GOAL will instantly end the level.

In an attempt to steal the six Chaos Emeralds and harness their power, the games antagonist, Dr. Ivo Robotnik,c has trapped the animal inhabitants of South Island in aggressive robots and stationary metal capsules. The player controls Sonic, who aims to halt Robotniks plans by freeing his animal friends and collecting the emeralds himself. If the player collects all the Chaos Emeralds and completes the game, an ending sequence is shown. If all the emeralds are not collected, Robotnik taunts the player while juggling any of the Chaos Emeralds not collected by the player. DevelopmenteditBackground and character designeditIn 1. Sega ordered its in house development studio, AM8, to develop a game featuring a mascot for the company. This was a position already held by the character Alex Kidd, but he was considered too similar to Nintendos mascot Mario and deemed unsatisfactory 1. Sega president Hayao Nakayama wanted a character as iconic as Mickey Mouse. Sega had competition with Nintendo, who was dominant at the time particularly after the release of the successful Super Mario Bros. Sega wanted a foothold in the industry. Although the company had some limited success with Genesis ports of its arcade titles, it knew this would not be enough. AM8 developed ideas for characters, an engine, and gameplay mechanics. Development emphasized speed, so AM8 eliminated character designs not associated with fast animals, as well as fast creatures like kangaroos and squirrels. One idea, a rabbit able to grasp objects with prehensile ears, showed promise at first but was too complex for the available hardware. The team narrowed its search to animals that can roll into a ball, their idea for an attacking move.
