Sonic the Hedgehog's lifelong nemesis, Dr. Eggman, has established an extravagant intergalactic amusement park that promises a tonne of fun for everyone. Although the 'good' doc claims to have turned over a new leaf and promises nothing but the best of intentions, it's not long before the blue blur investigates and realises that a race of celestial beings, Wisps, are being used to power the grand structure for an ulterior purpose. Go figure.

With so many areas of the amusement park to explore, it might even be a bit of a slog for Sonic and his fast feet. Luckily for him, he is able to absorb the powers of these alien creatures and gain new abilities. It is these new moves that make up the filling of Sonic Colours' candy-based shell, as these allow you to find new routes and hidden secrets in otherwise madcap platform-heavy stages.

Use the Yellow Drill Wisp, for example, and Sonic can burrow through any soft surface to uncover bonuses and alternative paths. The Cyan Laser allows the hero to blast through the stage in a linear line, bouncing off of surfaces along the way. Use different Wisps one after the other to uncover complex routes that can save you a lot of time, or earn you a massive high score.

Taking everything learned from past Sonic titles, Sonic Colours at its very core is a platforming game that rewards players with speed-heavy areas and visually fantastic backdrops. Get ready to reach for the stars!
