Taking on Sonic Mania’s glorious bosses.
Sonic Mania is the unlikeliest success story of the year- after years of crippling mediocrity, Sega’s once world conquering mascot, the speedy blue blur Sonic the Hedgehog returns in a game that harkens back to his 16-bit glory days, and delivers the kind of platforming experience that the series has consistently failed to deliver on since the Genesis days.
With the great platforming come the kind of memorable boss battles that the franchise came to be known for- there are actually a lot of them, and every single one of them is memorable in their own way. They’re generally easy, and shouldn’t take you too long to take down once you figure out what exactly you should be doing- but that is the part that can take a while.
That’s where we come in- in this guide, we have a video for you with every single boss in the game being defeated, so you know what you need to be doing. We also have timestamps, so you know where to look, and don’t end up spoiling yourself by mistake (though I guess you’d have the names spoiled anyway). Here you go, and good luck.
