In Sonic The Hedgehog: Battle Racers, players play as Sonic, one of his friends, a rival, or a foe, and race in a track full of obstacles, platforms, and Badniks. In order to win, you will have to collect as many rings as possible and destroy Badniks at every opportunity! But keep an eye on the other racers and make sure to go as fast as you can without colliding into a wall, falling into water.
Each round, every player will choose a Race Card and play it simultaneously. Race Cards are a combination of one Action and one Movement. The Action portion can adjust a Racer’s speed, allow them to jump over obstacles and Badniks, or even activate a Racer’s Power, to name just a few choices. The Movement portion allows you to Run or Jump, and is always mandatory--this is a racing game after all! The player with the most rings at the conclusion of the race wins.
