However, when you run out of rings, colliding with opponents will lead to death. Try to collect as many rings as possible to raise your longevity. Another way is to get power-ups from item boxes on the road. If you see any item boxes, jump on them to destroy them to claim power-ups. These power-ups will aid to protect you from the damage of the opponents or run faster. Nevertheless, their effects will disappear right after you hit your enemies.

Effective tactics to beat Sonic exe

In fact, this game is more difficult than it looks. If you want to win, you need to not only master skills but also build your own strategies. Here are some useful tips I recommend. Hope that they can help you get a victory easily.

  • Jump whenever the opportunity arises. This will help you dodge obstacles and enemies or take out rivals.
  • Avoid confronting the enemies when you run out of rings.
  • Don't roll too fast. If you roll too fast, you can collide with enemies or traps easily.
  • You can see sparkling checkpoint markers along the way. They are portals that take you to bonus stages. Therefore, you should not ignore them.
  • Try to find giant golden rings which take you to the special stage. In this stage, you can see a UFO holding a Chaos Emerald. Attempt to collect seven Chaos Emeralds.
