Sonic the Hedgehog™ Classic
"Gotta go fast. Gotta go faster." Remember the theme song?
Now, our favorite blue hedgehog is getting the Hollywood treatment with Jim Carrey playing the nemesis in Sonic the Hedgehog in not one but two movies. You needed to build up speed, collect rings, and battle the minions of the evil Eggman/Dr. Robotnik.
The original Sonic the Hedgehog came out in 1991 on the Sega Genesis console as one of its featured games. Rolling, jumping, and attacking all happened with a single button. The key to this game involves picking up enough speed to circumvent jumps, ramps, and hurdles at amazing speeds and using twists and turns like a roller coaster.
