CheatCC says: "How did a spiny blue hedgehog end up with crazy fast powers? It's the magical shoes, of course. It seems a possession capable of such wondrous abilities would undoubtedly fall under the covetous eyes of others hedgehogs seeking fame and glory. What a hedgehog would do with magic shoes, besides saving the planet by running around very fast and thrashing animal cyborgs, is really up to one's imagination."
This week CheatCC's Run Jump Shoot column runs with Sonic! New retro reviews and pixel art every Wednesday.
