"Sonic Dash" is an endless running game based off of the "Sonic the Hedgehog" series of video games. As Sonic the Hedgehog, you are constantly in motion with no way of slowing down or stopping. The objective of this game is to dodge the obstacles that appear on the screen as you attempt to make a new high score. There is no ending to this game because the game will continue for as long as you keep running. With both local and global leaderboards, you can compete against runners from all over the world. The amazing graphics look just like the "Sonic" home console versions.

Gotta Go Fast

Just like in the game, Sonic the Hedgehog can use his famous spin attack to destroy enemies in his path. Sonic also has a slide move to duck under any obstacles in his way. It only takes one hit in this game to end your run, so you'll need to stay aware of your surroundings at all times. As you run, the environments will regularly change. All of the levels in this game are taken directly from older "Sonic the Hedgehog" levels. At certain points in the game, you will test your skills against a boss. These boss fights take place against characters from the "Sonic" game series.

There are daily and weekly missions you can complete as you run to help keep the gameplay fresh. These tasks range from running a particular distance to destroying a certain number of enemies in one life. Completing these objectives will award you with new playable characters, including "Sonic" mainstays such as Tails and Knuckles.
