A minigame compilation for the PlayStation EyeToy, which was a webcam add-on for the PlayStation 2. It features multiple Sega characters from franchises like Super Monkey Ball, Crazy Taxi and Nights, but we’re only interested in the Sonic portion.
The Sonic minigame is Sonic running down a tunnel collecting rings and emeralds, a bit like the special stages from Sonic Heroes. you move your hand around the circle and Sonic will move over to there. Spiked balls will turn up to get in your way and the goal is to collect the most rings. If you collect all seven chaos emeralds in the stage, you will become Super Sonic and be invincible.
There are six difficulties – once you beat Sonic’s three difficulties you can complete more difficult version as Shadow.
There’s also a little Tamagochi-like chao garden, but no matter what I did, I couldn’t get my chao to hatch.
Sega Superstars was an interesting novelty when it got released, but motion gaming has changed so much since this came out. At least this was Sonic’s only attempt at a camera-based control (it was, right? right?)
