Before Sonic Speed Simulator was announced for Roblox platforms, I had never played Roblox. Sure, I knew about the 'oof" meme, but other than that I never cared to notice the game since the Sonic announcement.
Due to the lack of news and gameplay footage that still surrounds the upcoming title, Sonic Frontiers - which is due for a release in apparently 6 months from now, and we've still seen no gameplay whatsoever, Sega decided to finally feel sorry for us and give us a Sonic game to be entertained by for free while we wait painfully for the next title.
But Sonic Speed Simulator may be the best new Sonic game in ages.
Annnounced only a few days ago, and released on April 16, the Sonic Speed Simulator addition to Roblox is treated as an official game. In it, you work up unlocking speed levels to eventually unlock Sonic and Tails. It's the first time in a long time that Tails can be a playable character in a solo 3D Sonic game.
You collect many Chao Orbs to upgrade your speed level. The whole goal of the game is to go fast and unlock the familiar duo, which after you are required to do so is actually an easy and straight forward task. I managed to unlock both Sonic & Tails at level 30.
Unlike Team Sonic Racing, Chao are featured heavily in this game. You can unlock different Chao to boast about your different statistics for your character's speed levels. They follow you around in the game even.
