Superpower Mechanics

It’s no use being “the fastest thing alive”, if the speed is not utilised an interesting manner. This section examines mechanics for turning Sonic’s speed into a super power.

Super Hero Situations
Super hero situations that require the player to make full use of Sonic’s speed.
These consist of
(1) Devices that needed to be powered by Sonic’s speed.
(2) Obstacles that can only be overcome by outrunning them.
Super hero situations occur frequently in the classic games are an important method for establishing the identity of the series.

Gravity Obstacles
Gravity obstacles require the player to use Sonic’s speed to overcome gravity.
This allows the player to value the speed as a super power and provides several other benefits.
