It appears the mysterious enemy force that sends Sonic back in time is actually trying to alter Sonic’s universe’s timeline. But why they are trying to alter Sonic’s timeline isn’t clear. The write-up also states the game includes a handful of boss fights and one in particular sees you “defeating a giant serpent creature by crashing into its weak points”.

Rating summary: This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of Sonic the Hedgehog as he attempts to stop a mysterious force from altering his universe’s timeline. As players zoom across fantastical landscapes, they collect gold rings and power-ups while using spin attacks to knock over enemies (e.g., insect- and animal-like robots); enemies disappear amid smoke puffs, and Sonic blinks and loses rings when hit. The game includes a handful of boss-fight sequences (e.g., defeating a giant serpent creature by crashing into its weak points); explosions, shrieking sounds, and close-up spin attacks accompany these battles.
