Overview

In Sonic Shuffle, the player can select one of the main characters of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. The game supports up to 1 player in Story Mode and up to 4 players simultaneously in Versus Mode and the Sonic Room. Further to the simultaneous play, the game allows for players to play in teams and play against one another on a giant game board, going around and playing mini games to collect Emblems. Whoever has the most emblems at the end of each board wins. The overall goal of each board is to collect the most precioustones, out of a total of 7. There are 5 boards in total: Emerald Coast, Fire Bird, Nature Zone, Riot Train, and Fourth Dimension Space.

The game also featured 8 playable characters, each with their own unique abilities, and 4 of which needed to be unlocked. The available characters were: Sonic, Tails, Amy, Knuckles, Super Sonic, Big the Cat, Gamma, and Chao.


The game featured around 50 mini games and around 30 mini events. Mini games ranged in variety and challenge and they were divided by Teams of 2, Teams of 3 versus a Single Player and a Free-For-All. The mini events generally involved a little story, or event, and usually a choice given at the end to determine your prize or punishment. As well as having a single-player Story Mode and a two- to four-player Versus Mode, the game had a “Sonic Room” where you could play your favorite mini-games, after unlocking them, with your friends without starting a full game in a place called the "Toy Box", as well as a stereo to play your favorte soundtracks. Both of these must be unlocked by buying Photos from the Photo Album.


Gameplay

The game play involves playing randomly given cards. The deck of cards has four of every number 1-6 and four wild cards. Three of the wild cards has an “S” and the remaining card was the “EGGMAN” card. Playing the cards would dictate the distance your player would move on the board. The S cards could be played as a 7 if you had decent timing as the card changed from 1 to S. The "EGGMAN" card was bad fortune for one or all of the characters and would generally cause trouble for the players in myriad ways. A full game could take anywhere from 20 minutes to two and a half hours, depending on how many precioustones you decided to be available to you at the beginning.

Trivia

  • A comic tie-in has been done in issue #92 of Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog title.
  • This was Corey Bringas' second game as Miles "Tails" Prower, who also voiced Tails for a third time in the following game, Sonic Adventure 2, though he was not cast as Tails in the follow up to that game, Sonic Heroes, because of his changed voice when he became a teenager. The role was thus given to William Corkery until Sega replaced him along with the rest of the voices with the 4Kids voices.
  • Elara Distler who is known as Tikal's voice actress, also voiced Lumina Flowlight.
  • Lani Minella,Omochao & Rouge's first voice actress, provided a voice for Void.
  • Lumina bears a striking resemblance to NiGHTS, the star of Sonic Team's 1996 Sega Saturn game NiGHTS into Dreams.
