Sonic fans have a new title to check out in the Google Play store. In a follow-up to their 2012 title Sonic Jump, SEGA has released Sonic Jump Fever. In addition to the standard improvements in areas like graphics, the main change for this sequel is the move from being a premium app to being a free app with in-app purchases available. SEGA also incorporates play against your friends and leaderboard rankings much more in this title putting more emphasis on social aspects.
If you are a fan of Sonic The Hedgehog, Sega has a special going on right now that you might be interested in. Several Sonic titles are on sale for only 99 cents.

E3 is here, and all of the major gaming companies are beginning to announce the new titles they’ll be releasing in the next year.
SEGA today announced ‘Sonic Jump Fever,’ a new installment of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.
This game is a bit more social than others before it, as it centers around beating your friends’ scores. You can chose your character and compete in vertical jumping challenges, much like Doodle Jump in the Sonic universe. There are a bunch of power-ups and boosters to collect as well as unique character abilities.
The actual release date is not known, but stay tuned for more as the beginning of summer comes closer. Hit the break for the game’s promotional video.
Need more Crazy Taxi? SEGA is working on a new installment for the series, titled Crazy Taxi: City Rush. Being that the focus is solely on mobile platforms, SEGA can optimize the experience properly. Kenji Kanno, creator of Crazy Taxi, says that “We are delivering a truly fun game that captures everything our fans love about the original and infusing it with several new features to create an even more fantastic and memorable experience.” The graphics will be much more smooth and vibrant and the mechanics finely tuned.
But as you wait for City Rush to make its way to the Play Store, SEGA is making the original Crazy Taxi more appealing. From now through March 19 (Wednesday), Crazy Taxi can be downloaded for absolutely nothing.

Sega is continuing their tradition of releasing Sonic the Hedgehog games on mobile devices, with the latest being Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed. It’s a little pricey at $4.99, but there’s a laundry list of features to make it a compelling purchase.
There are 10 available characters to choose from, each with their own unique transforming vehicle, with more scheduled to be released at some point in the future.

The control scheme has also been tailored for mobile devices, and Sega has built in full controller support if you use a mobile gamepad.

After being available on iOS for quite some time, Sega has released Sonic Dash into the Play Store. In true Sonic fashion, he’s running; however, unlike other editions of the popular franchise, this one doesn’t have the hedgehog traveling from left to right. Sonic Dash is like Temple Run in that you are running forward, dodging enemies and obstacles that enter your path. It is free-to-play, so you can give this a whirl without having to pay anything.
