Sonic Dash now free and massively updated!

SEGA has released an update today that drastically changes the iOS game Sonic Dash. First off, the game is now free to play. Great news for those who have yet to buy the game, though it is a bit of a kick in the leg to fans who paid for the game initially. However, the game has been improved across the board. For starters, performance is much better on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4 devices. I’ve noted much smoother gameplay on my own iPhone 4. Another big improvement is the tweaking of object placement. Before, players might run up a hill, only to reach the top and run right into a barrier with little time to react. Now, SEGA promises that players will encounter this far less. A major complaint lodged at the game was that it was very difficult to earn red rings, and there was a finite amount. Red rings allow players to buy additional playable characters.

Now, thanks to daily play challenges, players are tasked with collecting four puzzle pieces a day, which in turn can be redeemed for a daily prize. Day one gives 100 rings, day two gives two head start power-ups, day three gives five respawns, day four gives two red star rings. Day five is the big prize, as you have the chance to win five red rings, ten respawns, 200 rings, five head starts, or a new playable character (in the case of this week, it is Tails).

Do these changes make Sonic Dash a better game? Sound off in the comments section! Also, after the break a detailed list of what the update contains.

    This is very good news. It’s important to rewards players for playing rather than force them into buying microtransactions.

    ok loved this game since i payed for it hours after release but it was to hard to unlock characters and still is. i would not be so bothered if they had different ability’s but the new update i have already had to wait between 2-5 min between each game to load hope this sorts it self out as generations and dash is the best sonic game since sonic 3 and knuckles, still surprised generations didnt do dlc levels for other games like, wouldnt mind a hd render of sonic 3 and knuckles where sonic and tails were playable and knuckles was unlock-able with his own little root would be good…. this hole extra characterless is going to far there all repetitions of each other….

      You, sir, show clear mastery of the written English language.

      Diggity that’s brilliant. Made me laugh. Abilities spelt incorrectly and with a rogue apostrophe, then later, Wouldn’t without one. There’s a surreal Root and it goes for the treble with Hole, Too and There. Pure class

    Since the most recent update, I have found it really hard to get the puzzle pieces. I used to be able to get them really easily to get my daily prize. I have played over two days now and have not even got one piece.

    Not happy.
