Another 2D indie platformer hitting Steam. Toricky; a game that's apparently a hybrid between Flappy Bird and Sonic the Hedgehog. Not to mention some bright jazzy graphics and heavily stylised visuals. Boasting 'unique mechanics based on flying' as their selling point, how does it really compare?

Phil writes, "Sonic the Hedgehog's newest 3D entry, Sonic Forces, had debut footage last week at a SXSW panel. With the prospect of a new Sonic coming fresh in my mind, it seemed like an opportune time as any to take a look at past 3D Sonic games with a special SuperPhillip Central top ten list. Sonic the Hedgehog has had it rougher than most franchises trying to transition from 2D to 3D. Some of his attempts were quite good. Others? Not so much. This list details some of his best and brightest as well as some of his worst and wackiest."

A Longer Look At Modern Sonic

During its South By Southwest panel last night, Sega in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise as Sonic Forces. The reveal was followed by a quick teaser clip showing some gameplay featuring Modern Sonic running through a European-style city as destruction rains down from above. We had a chance to see a longer version of this stage.
The Modern Sonic mechanics in Sonic Forces are inspired heavily by the 3D gameplay found in Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations, featuring a new version of the Hedgehog Engine used in those games. As seen in the teaser, Sonic runs through the streets while the city crumbles around him. As he turns a corner, two giant egg-shaped robots can be seen in the distance approaching the city via water. Sonic can't immediately do anything about those giant machines, so he opts to take care of the smaller bots right in front of him. He boosts through the first set before using his homing attack to knock out another group and reach a higher platform.
Throughout the rest of the stage, I see several familiar elements from the Sonic series, including grind-rails, ziplines, and boosters. As the level progresses, side-characters like Knuckles, Amy, and some members of the Chaotix communicate with Sonic via radio as if to report in on what they're seeing during the assault. Sega tells us that though these characters are present in the game, they are not playable. Instead, gameplay is focused on Modern Sonic, Classic Sonic, and a third style that Sonic Team is keeping close to its chest.

In Sonic Forces, Eggman has already conquered the world. He's won, and the effects can be seen throughout the various stages; this was immediately evident in the stage I saw. We don't know how the world has fallen under his control, but Sega is teasing further reveals for this in the lead-up to launch.
Later in the stage, Sonic lands on a platform and the camera shifts to a side-perspective to deliver the modern gameplay with a side-scrolling twist that we've seen in prior games. Though this gives the sequence a definite retro feel, this gameplay is completely separate from the as-of-yet unveiled Classic Sonic stages.
The stage was but a quick sampling of what one-third of the Sonic Forces formula looks to deliver, but I left my demo hopeful of what this game could deliver. Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations were among the best-received entries in the franchise's recent history, and the fact the with regards to its deadline structure and development cycle has me optimistic.
Sonic Forces is set to release this holiday season for Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, before that hits, fans of the series can look forward to the previously announced Sonic Mania, which is being developed by a group of indie developers, sometime in the next several months.

Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega Genesis. Super Mario on the SNES. Crash Bandicoot on the Sony PlayStation. All of these games (and consoles) are the ones that meant the most to me growing up in my love for gaming. Sonic started it all, Mario (and Donkey Kong too honestly) came in right after Sonic ...]
