Sonic Mania: How to Drop Dash as Sonic the Hedgehog

You can tell from the development team's efforts that they truly appreciate the life and times of Sonic the Hedgehog, and even more so about the pop culture that surrounds the series.

Sonic Mania is the first true follow up and spiritual successor to the classic Sonic games from the SEGA Genesis era. The Drop Dash is better when you actually have momentum, like you've been launched in the air, and instead of landing straight down, you can just burst into a dash and keep going instead. Your action button is whatever you press to do things like use a shield's power, glide (Knuckles), fly (Tails), etc.

Well, Sonic Mania finally appears to have finally delivered on the goods.

According to Arthur Gies, Sonic Mania has been forcing the player to use one of those cliches, that got forbidden by the reviewers. Conquering these grants Chaos Emeralds, which do what Sonic fans would expect them to do. "Now, Headcannon and PagodaWest Games has taken that joke to the next level by making it real, giving players access to Knuckles as a Tails-like following character in new, unlockable gameplay mode, "& Knuckles Mode". The former is more a novelty than anything else, as it keeps the freakish stretched aspect ratio from Sonic 2 that makes seeing where you're going very hard.

Far from the tone-deaf reinventions and cynical cash-ins of Sonic at its worst, this is a love-filled celebration that also proves there is life in the 25-year-old original concept yet.

Sonic Mania is chock full of references to the blue blur's 25-year legacy, with no shortage of fan service for the most dedicated of Sega connoisseurs.
