Dr. Eggman invades Sonic Dash in free update

The Deadly Six have been pestering Sonic since the release of Sonic: Lost World, but his old rivals haven't forgotten their hatred for the blue blur. Dr. Eggman serves as Sonic's latest opposition in Dr. Eggman Invasion, a new challenge for the mobile endless runner Sonic Dash. Thankfully, Eggman is ready to conveniently time attacks and place traps so that agile players can guide Sonic to victory.

In Sonic Dash's winding pathways, players eventually reach bumpers that propel them into the air. These serve as an opportunity to "bank" rings so that they can't be lost by running into an enemy or obstacle. Eggman appears during one of these aerial moments, and messing up his fancy flying chair will grant a nice boost to a player's score.

Sonic Dash is free to play, so as long as you're cool with advertisements and microtransaction popups, you can take on Eggman on iOS or Android devices.
