Sonic Advance is a side-scrolling platform game, and small levels connect the world in this game. Each level has terrain, paths, and many interesting places that are not linked to each other. In other words, the levels are a messy design, but they connect to each other to create a unique path, and they will interrupt themselves to distract the player from their destination. Players will control the available characters in this game to overcome all challenges. Each character has a unique skill compared to other characters, thereby making its gameplay more diverse and more attractive depending on the character that the player chooses.
In each level, the path will appear many obstacles such as traps, cliffs, and even broken segments for players to overcome. But along the way, there will be collectible items to accumulate in the player’s score. The terrain is cluttered, but it makes each skill of each character stand out more when used. Sonic can achieve sound speed every time he rolls; Knuckles can climb walls; Tails can fly thanks to her tail. With a variety of characters, it will make the gameplay more interesting when players can use each character’s skills most effectively. Each world will have a changing landscape, even the paths will become more cluttered and players will spend time while finding their way. But the game will have a bonus if the player collects everything at every level.
The battle of Dr. Eggman will mark the end of the game, and the player must use every skill he has to defeat him. Sonic Advance is an interesting game, it brings a lot of experience for players and new gameplay compared to other games. That game is also considered as one of the best games for GBA.
