Sonic Frontiers Gameplay
In Sonic Frontiers, Sonic finds himself on a mysterious island that he needs to explore around. In the beginning part of the game, the map feels almost empty apart from you having to run around at lightning-fast speeds, solve various puzzles and also climb around tall structures. There are five islands for you to explore in the game. They all have dense forests, waterfalls, and also a good number of scenic views that you can take pictures of.
Since Sonic games are platformers, you can expect a lot of side quests for you to solve as you run around the various islands. There are also various portals that let you enter the Cyber Space. Once you reach Starfall Island, you will encounter new and different creatures in the game. As you would expect, there will be a number of battles that you have to fight against these creatures. You will be able to upgrade your skills and also make use of various moves such as dodgers, combos, and counters.
Sonic will also encounter a number of robots while discovering the remains of an old ancient civilization.
