SEGA Issues Sonic Dash Global Challenge for Shadow

A few days back, SEGA teased the appearance of Shadow the Hedgehog in the iOS endless runner Sonic Dash, but that players would need to get ready for the ultimate challenge.

That challenge has since been issued today.

shadow_sonicdash

Issuing the first Global Challenge for Sonic Dash, SEGA and Hardlight Studios are giving players the chance to unlock Shadow as a playable character, but there’s a catch!

The challenge dares all players to collectively run the equivalent of 100 laps around the Earth in-game. If the 2.5 million mile target is reached by August 5th, participants will be rewarded with the ultimate life form as a playable character. All you need to do is boot up the game on your iOS device and run as far as possible.

It’s a team effort, so show those guys the real superpower of teamwork!

With the Global Challenge gone live earlier today, the current lap count is at 05 of 100.

TSS Review: Sonic Dash (iOS)

Following close in the wake of Sonic Jump, Sonic Dash seems like an obvious choice in format for a portable Sonic game; an endless runner for a hedgehog who is reknowned for running. On this basis, Sonic Dash can be forgiven for being a near carbon-copy of the popular Temple Run… in fact it is slightly surprising SEGA hadn’t thought of this idea earlier!

This is exactly the kind of game I expect to become addicting really, really quickly. The graphics, the music, and the fitting nature of the game… it’s gorgeous!

Report: Sonic Dash Launches on the App Store This Thursday

SonicDash

SEGA weren’t kidding when they said Sonic Dash will be released “soon”, if a report from Pocket Gamer France is to be believed. The website, which revealed a bunch of details about the game on Friday, claims Sonic Dash will be released on the App Store this Thursday. With SEGA only formally unveiling the game today with bare bones details and some artwork, many wouldn’t expect a release so soon. iOS games are often released about two weeks after their announcement and SEGA hasn’t even shown any screenshots or video footage of it.

Looking back, though, SEGA did list it in that Hardlight Studio job advertisement last week as a past success, like the game is complete and ready to go.
