Some characters have to be shoehorned into an endless runner, but for Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog, the genre is a natural fit. Now Sega is offering a Nintendo-style promotion that's only available for Android. Here's your chance to take our lovable green Bugdroid out for a spin, as the developers have dropped it into the game and are daring players to see if machines really are better at everything.

But that's not all. Players who play as Bugdroid fifty times can permanently unlock "Andronic," a disturbingly deformed version of Sonic that looks as though it has been crammed into a soda can and given pills for limbs. Dr. Robotnik could never have dreamed of creating something so frightening.


Yeah... we'll stick with Metal Sonic. He's been around since Sonic CD, and he's served us well. Thanks, though.


Players have twelve days to jump on this opportunity. Just follow the path to the Play Store below.

Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

    "Andronic" sounds like some sort of androgyny situation

    pssst... Mecha Sonic was in Sonic 2. Much earlier than Sonic CD

    • lljktechnogeek

      I think that was a different robotic duplicate of Sonic, assuming my vague memories of 90s videogames are accurate.

    • TheOtherJames

      Mecha Sonic and Metal Sonic are two different characters. Mecha Sonic is nowhere near as cool. I'm pretty sure he's never been in any games except Sonic 2.

      • tymalo

        I did not know they were different characters. But he was definitely in Sonic & Knuckles.

        • TheOtherJames

          You're right. Sonic & Knuckles had a rebuilt Mecha Sonic.

      Mecha Sonic ≠ Metal Sonic

      You can see this clearly from his designs in Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles and also his movesets. They're basically the same in each game.

    They were too slow with updates in the beginning, lost interest for this game fairly fast... I'd rather spend 10$ on the Mickey Remake

    Weird that subway surfers or temple run didn't do this yet

  • mustbepbs

    This is a great game besides the (obviously intentional) lag spikes that cause you to mess up and die.

  • Randy Strye

    am i weird in saying that sonic cd was my favorite of the series...?

    • TheOtherJames

      No. If the slower pace doesn't put you off it IS the best of the classic series.

  • Michael J Carroll

    Why the hell hasn't this been done before.
