Sonic Mania is one of two Sonic games being released for the 25th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog. It's a throwback to the original 2d Sonic games on the Sega Genesis, featuring pixel art graphics, springs and bouncers from the traditional games, and 2d gameplay. Several zones will be brought back, which look extremely similar, if not identical, to the original zones. New zones are also being added and can be seen in the announcement trailer. There are three playable characters, Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles.

Several developers who have worked on some of the best Sonic games, specifically Sonic Generations and Sonic Colors, are working on this game as well. It is scheduled for an early 2017 release.

Open Community

Game Sense is an open video game community where anyone can write posts about any games they want. You can write video game reviews, news, leaks, guides or post videos.

Ranked Posts

Ranked posts focus on specific parts of a game, like things about the game play, graphics, controls, audio, and more, instead of being generic reviews. You can post reviews, news, and videos to change a game's score. The change that happens depends on what Post Topic you select. If you don't select one, no change will happen. Other gamers can also tag your post with Post Topics. Post Topics are purely a matter of opinion so there are sometimes more than one right answer.

Unranked Posts

Unranked posts include guides, leaks, and free posts. They do not affect scores and do not have Post Topics. Feel free to post whatever you want in these posts.
