[Not sure if you really "gotta go fast?" Have a look at our Sonic Runners review.]
Despite its flaws, Sonic Runners' platforming action is actually quite fun. Though it can be a little more complicated than old-school Sonic games. Here's how to make sure you're up to speed when jumping in.
Scoring high in Sonic Runners has a few different benefits. First is that scoring high in a run can get you to boss showdowns faster. This is good because bosses can yield buddies if you play your cards right (more on buddies later). Secondly, scoring high inevitably allows you to collect a lot of rings. Rings are good because they can help level-up characters. Finally, scoring high makes it easier to rank-up, which can reset the number of lives you have and is a particularboon if you're not spending money on anything.
