To play the mobile game “Sonic Dash,” players first have to download the game on an Android or iOS device. Players use touch and motion controls to help Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends run as far as possible without crashing into obstacles.
“Sonic Dash” is an endless running game. Since it has no conclusion, the goal is to achieve a high score and unlock new items. Players unlock more content for the game as they collect coins and run further. Players can even unlock other playable characters such as Amy, Tails and Knuckles.
While the game is free and playing it unlocks content, players can use real-world money to unlock content faster. For example, they can use real money to unlock extra coins in the game. Although doing so isn't necessary, it gives players an edge when they try to achieve higher scores. Players can also earn additional coins when they complete Daily Challenges or play the Daily Spin game.
“Sonic Dash” is a single-player game, but players can upload their high scores to online leaderboards to compete with other players. They can also invite their friends to play the game through Facebook to see who can get the highest score.
