Open Sonic is a free open-source game based on the “Sonic the Hedgehog” universe.
It introduces a different style of gameplay called cooperative play, in which it is possible to control 3 characters simultaneously.
Unlike most similar games, Open Sonic provides a greater level of interaction between the player and the levels. It is more than just a jump’n’run, as the player must come up with some strategy in order to get through the levels.
With attractive graphics and compelling gameplay, Open Sonic is highly addictive, just like the original.
