Game Overview

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is a two-dimensional adventure of Sonic and his friend through old-school locations, a thrilling action game where the player will again collect rings and Chaos Emeralds. You have to deftly jump on platforms, fight Doctor Robotnik's henchmen and reach the end of the map through mazes.

The main villain of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is an evil scientist who creates fighting robots and calls them badniks. Sonic the Hedgehog will travel to a secret hovering island where Doctor Robotnik is hiding.

The player will go through six locations:

  • Angel Island
  • Water City
  • Marble Garden
  • Carnival Night
  • Ice Cap
  • Launch Base

The maps are filled with interesting interactive objects: jump springs, gold rings, spikes, and elevators.

When Sonic curls up in a ball, he runs fast, becomes invulnerable, and attacks well. Tails, the second playable character, can fly thanks to his two tails that spin like helicopter blades. At risky moments, Sonic clings to Tales and they fly away together.

If the game seems too difficult, it's worth collecting rings. One hundred precious rings can be exchanged for extra life, which will help at a critical moment. Pick up the power-ups that are hidden in the phoned-up TVs:

  • A magnet will attract gold
  • Electric, water and fire shields help with defense and attack
  • Hearts replenish the health bar

You'll have to swim! Some locations are filled with water. Get a grip and swim to your goal, remembering to swim out and breathe air.

At the end of any stage, mini-bosses await the good characters. Sometimes users will also meet Doctor Robotnik. Win is not easy: you need to avoid shots and pick up the moment for the return blows.


Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is a retro game in the classic old drawing that fans of Sonic Mania will love. Nostalgia for the evenings you spent with your Sega console as a child. The difficulty of the game is quite high - you need to sweat a lot to reach the end of the round. The player will use his wits and reaction speed.
