Sonic the Hedgehog was my first forray into the gaming world all those many moons ago. Since then I haven't looked back. The game premise is ultimately a simple one. Fast blue hedgehog has to rescue cute animals from robotic prisons while hunting for Chaos Emeralds and his ultimate nemesis, Dr Robotnik. It's a simple platformer game with memorable characters and music. The levels are always challenging though, and they are well designed on the whole.
An indispensible part of computer gaming history and probably the childhood of most children born in the mid 80's. I still remember the cheat for this game!
