Even though the leaves are beginning to turn in some places, iOS owners can still enjoy kicking up sand and splashing in Sonic’s archnemesis of H20. SEGA has decided to send Sonic to warmer climates, revealing a beach locale as stage 2 for the so-far-iOS-only Sonic Dash.
Taking place on Sonic Heroes‘ often-referenced Seaside Hill, Sonic and his intrepid motley crew of friends will do what they do best in Dash: run forward collecting rings while avoiding a miserable death. Only this time, killer whale’s will jump over the sandbars as a grim reminder of Sonic and friends’ inevitable fate. It’s also possible to venture underwater through a series of glass tubes, as originally seen in Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing.
SEGA further confirmed a new global challenge will be touching down soon. The last global challenge was successfully met, unlocking Shadow as a playable character.
Well, what are you doing sitting here still? Go play on the beach! You’re all green and sickly looking.
I’ll be shocked if they don’t release an exclusive Sonic Lost World stage to tie-in with October’s release. A Windy Hill themed one would be easy to create.
I came in here expecting a Chaotix throwback.
I’m sorry I failed to meet your expectations. Please accept this link as retribution.
Why? WHY?! WHY DID I HAVE TO LOSE MY iPHONE over the summer?!?!!? I swear as soon as I lost my iPhone, Sonic Dash actually began getting fun and updated. It stinks to be me right now.
And yet STILL no Android port.
Come on SEGA, promise us a playable FANG and I’ll never look up from the game until I get the score you need to unlock him.
Been playing this a lot for some reason. Was super happy with the last update as it happened to make the game much more stable on iPad 1. This update breaks it again, LOL.
So that Sonic Jump stuff is never coming, huh?
Still no android version SEGA? I am disappointed, they would have more people playing it!
I wish they wouldn’t claim that this is a new level. I spent ages trying to find out how to access the level before discovering that it is just a new area that can be accessed while running through the existing area.
“Series of glass tubes”
Series of tubes.
How the hell do I find the beach level? I see no indication in the app? I updated it and it isn’t there.
I heard tell there was going to be a Sonic Lost world stage on sonic dash but I was thinking ‘Lost World’ as in ‘Sonic Aventure’ stage on dreamcast now that would have been EPIC until I see that this is the new stage and any Lost World stage is based on the new game 🙁 I am very disappointed but the new area is nice it’s just following the same theme.
Here’s to hoping the next global challenge will be to finally get Sonic Dash on android. Oh, and SEGA? I’m still waiting for that Sonic 2 port on android!!!!
