Sonic Classics was an iconic collection of Sega Genesis (Mega Drive) games created by SEGA that were released in the early 1990s. Such classics include Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine and Ristar The Shooting Star– all of which have become staples in the retro gaming world amongst children and adults alike.

The design for each game's artwork is recognisable for its bright colours, classic pixelated characters, catchy music and classic mid-90s movie references– all which combine to create a sense nostalgia within those associated with this type of game.

Sonic the Hedgehog was arguably the most popular out of these games due to its space age setting and being named after the speediest mammal on Earth –and furthermore being one of the earliest 3D-style console games available. In the game you would play as Sonic trying to collect golden rings whilst running away from enemies like mechanised crabs, block containing spikes and giant robots, who all want to stop him from gathering these precious rings. Along his path there were obstacles such as loops and bridges that made hopping around even more fun allowing players to boost their score which feels absolutely essential for any veteran Sega fan!

Sonic 2, was a similar adventure but with improvements adding new levels along with playable partner "Tails" who could help pick up yet more rings –or tag along during boss battles, truly giving some depth to platform gaming environment. It also featured some online elements whereby various bonus levels or objects could be unlocked by trading secrets codes using local co-op modes; adding a great incentive for competing at home or at friends houses against multi-generational generations! And lets not forget about those unique soundtracks –so characteristic of 90s gaming– that would enhance any genre’s atmosphere in a delightful way.

Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine was equally enjoyable as it allowed players compete to match up beans in similar colours collected on randomly generated ladders which fill up again at varying speeds making it tricky yet satisfying! It offered different enemies alongside its ‘Normal’ mode memory offering greater difficulty -giving fans an extra challenge if they felt ready for it! It also has optional two players mode—an excellent way of boosting replay value given how many bean configurations you can experience across this machine—it just keeps getting better!

Lastly perhaps the least remembered title Ristar The Shooting star truly showcased what amazing adventures you could experience from Sega Mega Drive because rather than tackle violent enemies your character use cute creatures called Vectors so as not fly across platforms as well as wield arms against baddies/victims alike during tactical scenarios or boss battles where strength really mattered. Additionally flying around multiple environments based on cool sci fi themes with totally unique character designs upped ante from search engine titles like Mario!! So much going on across this entire series proving why Sega Classics collection always stands footsteps away from other competitors whenever we look back fondly onto oldschool classics...
