Like Sgt Peppers on a really bad trip, Dr Eggman – aka Dr Robotnik – has caused the world all manner of grief. Thankfully, however, we have Sonic the Hedgehog on our side, and Sonic Forces is his latest mission.

Yes, Eggman and his forces are at it again, but Sonic has a secret weapon this time – you! Or me, or us, or them, or however you wish to identify the person who’s playing. In a fit of awesomeness, you can customise your own furry dynamo to battle alongside the spiky blue one.

Combining traditional 2D side-scrolling Sonic with excerpts from his 3D incarnations, Sonic Forces looks like a blistering blue blur blast, and it’s available now on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

Goo goo g’joob.
