Sonic Dash passes the 100 million downloads milestone!
One small step for Sonic, one giant leap for the hedgehog community
In March 2013, when Sonic Dash was released for Apple devices, the spiky speedster asked the world “How far can you run?” Two years later we have found the answer: precisely 1.8 billion kilometres, and counting!
Two years and over 100 million players around the world made this happen, collecting a total of 850 billion gold rings along the way and spending a staggering 14,000 cumulative years playing Sonic Dash! Over the past two years the game featured nearly 10 in-game events and has become available on the App Store, Google Play, the Amazon App Store and Windows Phone.
With participation across all platforms to reach this milestone, it has made Sonic Dash the most downloaded Sonic game ever!
