Well here is the history of Sonic the Hedgehog the whole 10 years
1990: The Creation
Project Sonic was just beginning a character that would change
Sega Enterprises and the gaming industry, perhaps the world… 7 months later the game would be
finished and Japanese fans would get a glimpse of the blue blur.
1991: The Beginning
Sonic the Hedgehog was released for almost all systems available from
Sega In all countries tons of people bought the system and got the game with it. It of course was a hit with the
"high definition graphics" which is says on the back of my genesis. And all though it was a 16-bit game you could
get yourself going to fast for you own good. It was one of the first games to have the speed and excitement that
Mario bros. didn't deliver…
1992: The Next Step
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is released on almost all systems again only a
year later. Sega delivers another hit with new surprises like a puzzling little fox followed you around for some
strange reason and if you got to fast for him he would just fly in about 5 seconds later. Another big thing is you
could have your friend control him as bait (which came in more handy in more in the 3rd… anyway they also
through in a different way to enter the completely different special stage and a reason to get all SEVEN chaos
emeralds…to morph into Super Sonic of course. Then to close the game they put a two player split screen mode
with 4 levels to choose from 1st player is Sonic and 2nd is Tails…
1993: Another Big Year
Archie Comics starts publishing comic based on the
SatAM show and another show comes out AoStH.
Sega Releases Sonic CD on what I believe is the first 32-bit CD game system that had to be attached to the genesis.
Sonic the Hedgehog Chaos was released on game gear and 2 new Sonic games on genesis were released…
Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball which is a pinball game where sonic is the ball and u had to get the 3 or 5
emeralds in each level I never got passed level 4 which I believe is the last except for a bonus boss. This
game was highly addicting and was surprisingly CHALLENGING!!! (this did not release in US until next year
Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean machine was the only genesis game I do not own but to my knowledge it's just a
Tetris 2 or Dr. Mario type of game
Back to Top!
1994: The Big Bang End
A couple game gear games were released but the big bang was
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 with another mysterious character who would show up laugh and flip a switch to piss you off.
This of course was Knuckles who was evil at the time. The big thing about this game was the saving system and two
player levels which you could play as Sonic Tails or Knuckles each with their advantages.
Then Sonic and Knuckles came out with the new lock on technology the game itself started as u could play as
Sonic or Knuckles (who would get in Sonics way in Sonics mode) then if u put Sonic 3 on S&K u got to play as
Knuckles or the other hand after the six zones then sonic and knuckles zones started then u beat them and a big
boss and u win… but then there's super emeralds and if u got all seven of those you got to be Hyper Sonic and I
think there's a story with that but I'm not sure what happens.
1995: Pathetic Attempts
Basically Sega made like 4 or 5 different game gear games and the
Sonic Classics which had Sonic 1,2 and mean bean. The Era was over…
1996: A New Chance
A 2 part anime is released in Japan but not released in America for a while.
PC games released and Sonic 3d blast is released for Saturn and genesis a kind of dumb game but
not bad graphics except the ground
Arcade game are released… and Sonic X-Treme is announced but isn't being made by sonic team…BIG MISTAKE

1999: A Dream is Born
Sonic Underground TV show starts and stops pretty
fast hmm I wonder why…

Sega take online gaming fairly far
And Sonic Shuffle a fun for and hour type of Party game is released
Sonic Team is working on something much bigger anyway

awaiting to see how it stands up to the greatness 2 years earlier it does with a great story and a Mysterious
Black hedgehog DUN DUN DUH
