Free 3D Sonic game
Sonic Utopia is an adventure PC game developed by Mr. Lange that features Sonic the Hedgehog. This free-to-play game imagines the most famous hedgehog in an open-world setting. Here, you will control Sonic as he moves past various obstacles at supersonic speed.
Sonic Utopia is a fan-made game. Unlike other Sonic titles, it puts players in a completely three-dimensional environment. Despite that, however, it maintains the fidelity to classic scenes from the 8-bit console era. All the elements of Sonic: the Hedgehog are also present. This game is still in the raw demo stage so expect a short run time.
What is Sonic Utopia?
Creating a modern Sonic Game has been a challenge for developers. No matter how hard they tried, no title has managed to match the love that the '90's platformers gained. Games, such as Sonic Generations, were decent, but they were pretty average. Sonic Utopia is a game that looks to fix the problems that 3D Sonic games have. Here, players have an open world to run, jump, and go through.
The map is fully 3D with all the elements that fans loved about Sonic: the Hedgehog. Everything will be nostalgic, from the insane looping and vegetation of the scenery to the enemies and music. Like a proper Sonic game, there will be platforming, although it looks more like high-speed parkour. It even emulates the multiple paths through levels, allowing players to choose the path they want to take.
To control Sonic, you use the keyboard in a simple way. The directional arrows move Sonic while the space bar allows him to jump. To accumulate momentum to go off the scene, hold the Shift key, and then release. As mentioned, Sonic Utopia is still under development. It is a far cry from an actual finished game. You can play the demo version but expect a short session.
Is the game good?
Sonic Utopia is the modern Sonic game that fans have been waiting for all along. This game managed to expand the classic gameplay in a 3D, intuitive way. It also captured the best of Sonic's style and remained faithful to the scenes of the well-loved '90s titles. It is still a demo game, however, so it will be short. Nevertheless, it will have you excited for the full release.
