Over the weekend, news broke that Sonic Dash had undergone a transformation into an arcade machine, well it turns out that TSS’ own Project Phoenix aka TitansCreed was the one who made the discovery and has since provided us with a number of photos of the arcade cabinet and a video of his discovery too.
Based on the video, you can play as Rouge and a number of other characters (we’ll get into those later). However one of the biggest differences is that you as you play the game, collect rings and get points, these are ranked and graded, your grade determines how many prize tickets you are rewarded with.
The images on the side of the cabinet suggest that you can play as Sonic, Tails, Shadow, Knuckles, Amy and TC also confirms that Blaze, Rouge and Cream are also playable. Other bits of information are confirmation that the cabinet is made by Sega Amusements
As well as the images, here is TC’s thoughts on the game in question
The level and character choice is completely random, in place of your touch pad you have a giant D-Pad in which to make your choice in terms of movements. Left and right for the obvious movements and up for jump and down for dash, in a similar style to the mobile game.
The boss is where things change slightly, and for the worst as it is in the players detriment. You have two target reticules you have to align in order to hit the boss. You only have one chance per area and you need to hit the boss three times, just like in the mobile version to proceed. If you miss once the game ends, there’s no going onto the next level, an instant game over.
All for the lovely price of £1, you end up with about a minute’s worth of gameplay…
