Sonic Labyrinth (GG / Game Gear)

Game Profile

Dr. Robotnik has tricked Sonic into wearing a pair of magical sneakers that prevent Sonic from running at super-sonic speeds.

Sonic knows that the sneakers may keep his feet from moving fast, but luckily they won't slow down his Super Spin Dash! The only thing that can restore Sonic's speed are the Chaos Emeralds hidden in Dr. Robotnik's super labyrinth. Help Sonic find the Chaos Emeralds before time runs out as he spins through four Labyrinth zones, each containing three regular stages and a Boss stage.

Step into special sneakers to make you run faster. But hurry, the power only lasts a short time
Use square warp gates to help you find special items
Grab 100 rings in the bonus stage to win an extra try

Maze craze

Failed game pitches from the 1990s: Madden without the ball. Mario without the jumping. Sonic without the speed. Except someone at SEGA must have thought the last one was a good idea, and gave Minato Giken the go-ahead to develop Sonic Labyrinth for Game...

This was the weirdest "Sonic" game to hit the market. I don't recommend it unless you get a Sonic Collection game.

Actually, I kind of like this game. The music is good, the graphics are bright and colorful but do flicker at times. Probably will get it though.



TravelingD said:

Honestly i'd revew this as a 2/10, it's to me tied with 2006 as the worst sonic game.

Better than Sonic 06, but not as good as the other main series Game Gear Sonics. Going to pick this up when it comes out in America.

I never got why this one was so hated... I played it in "Sonic Adventure DX." I liked it better then some of the other Game Gear Sonic titles personally. I liked the unique idea/gimmick of relying on the spindash, the isometric viewpoint, and finding keys, it kinda made the game feel like a puzzle action game kinda. My only complaint is I think this game should be 3 or 4 bucks sense it's kinda simplistic for a Sonic game. (But some of the later stages prove more challenging, so it's not to easy.)

This is my most underrated game tied with sonic blast at the moment. It's awesome.

Sonic without his speed (which is his defining characteristic, if I might add). This one will be interesting.
