Sonic 3D Blast for the Sega Genesis Mega Drive is an exciting platform game featuring everyone’s favorite hedgehog, Sonic. This game was the first 3D Sonic title and is set on a number of different planets across the universe. Players set out to collect rings, defeat enemies, and battle Doctor Eggman (known as Robotnik in some areas) in an effort to prevent him from collecting a certain rare creatures known as Flickies and using them to control the world.

The controls are simple and user-friendly, making it suitable for all ages - even the youngest players can have a go! Controlling Sonic is easy enough - you use the directional pad on your controller to move him around and make him do various actions. There are also different power ups which will help you on your mission - these include invincibility, increased speed and even a shield that will keep you alive if enemies shoot at you!

The graphics are pleasingly colourful and cartoonish, amping up the fun factor of this simple but enjoyable platformer. The soundtrack feature cheerful midi tunes that get stuck in your head for hours after playing!

Gameplay involves exploring each planet, such as surface levels or volcanoes filled with deadly obstacles, to find all five Flickies per level. Once they're found they must be directed back to their home by using springs so their numbers can be restored by none other than Doctor Eggman himself! As expected from Sonic titles there are secret zones with special rewards that can be discovered by beating bosses quickly or attacking walls with speed instead of jumping. You’ll even find hidden items that give bonuses or extra lives if you take some time to explore each stage thoroughly!

While Sonic 3D Blast isn't as revered as classic 2D titles such as Sonic The Hedgehog 2 or Knuckles Chaotix, it's still an entertaining ride that has aged surprisingly well despite coming from one of Sega's earliest attempts at a 3D title. It has become somewhat of an obscure gem over the years; one worth playing if only just to see how far console gaming has come since then - though hard core classic gamers should certainly pick this up too if they haven’t already!
