Open Sonic – based on the “Sonic the Hedgehog” games

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.

Features include:

  • Sonic-style physics (360° movement engine).
  • 2 levels + innovative items + extras.
  • Make your own levels using the embedded level editor.
  • Cooperative play – allows you to control 3 characters simultaneously.
  • Good performance even on old computers.
  • Available in 4 languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish and French.
