Mario & Sonic Online Game Recommendations - Part 8

Here is Part 8 in my ongoing, but now more occasional, series of Mario and Sonic online game recommendations (see this post and also Part 7 for previous entries in the series), which this time features three new Sonic games for you to try:

Sonic the Hedgehog: New Sonic Matchit
This is a Flash version of the classic and addictive "match the hidden pairs of picture cards" game featuring Sonic characters for the cards, plus music and sounds sampled from the first ever Sonic game that appeared on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis way back in 1991.
(And if you like this game, you might also like to try the original Java version of Sonic Matchit.)

Sonic the Hedgehog: Sky Chase
In this Flash version of the Sky Chase Zone from the classic 1992 game "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" your mission is to help Sonic (who is flying on the wings of Tails's Tornado airplane) to defeat all the Valkyn badniks and finally to take on Dr. Robotnik in an aerial battle.

Sonic the Hedgehog: Sonic Smash Brothers
This brilliant Sonic the Hedgehog version of "Super Smash Bros. Brawl" features 15 different characters for you to battle it out with (3 to begin with and 12 more that can be unlocked), including Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, Cream, Shadow, Silver and 8 more.
(And here is a Flash version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl for you to play too if you wish - it features Sonic characters as well as Mario and other Nintendo stars.)

As always, you can find these games at my website together with over 150 more.

More free Sonic game downloads

Last month I posted an article about some free Mario and Sonic game downloads for you to play on your computer (you can read the article and download the games here). Now there are two more great Sonic games that you can download and play for free:

Sonic the Hedgehog: Sonic Matchit -> .zip format, 2.09 MB

Sonic the Hedgehog: Sonic Sky Chase (2nd Version) -> .zip format, 1.28 MB

As before, the games are written in Flash, so you can upload them to your own website to play online as well as playing them offline on your PC. To use the downloads and play the games click on either of the links above, then select "Save" for the .zip compressed file that will be downloaded, and select a folder on your computer to save the .zip file into. Once the .zip file has downloaded successfully, unzip it and then you can play the game by double-clicking on the .htm file that was unzipped. (Note that the .htm file is an offline webpage that runs the .swf file which is the actual Flash game - you don't need an active internet connection to run it.)

To use the games in your own website, simply upload the .htm webpage files (which you may want to modify to your own site's style first) and the .swf Flash game files to your webspace, link to the .htm files from you site's home page, and you and your visitors can then play the games in your site.

You can play both these games, plus over 150 more, online at my site.
