Sonic the Hedgehog was the second of two Sonic games released for LeapFrog systems, following Sonic X, and like its predecessor contains educational aspects (in this case, spelling).
Unlike Sonic X, which was a reskin of another game, the Didj's Sonic title couches the educational stuff in more or less a "Greatest Hits" of the Genesis-era Sonic games: numerous graphics, sounds, enemies, and items are pretty much lifted directly from those titles, as is the gameplay. One big difference is that the Special Stage rings take Sonic to the spelling challenges; the Chaos Emeralds (of which there are only three) are instead awarded for beating bosses, with the final boss giving up the Master Emerald.
Sprites of Sonic walking and running diagonally. His jumping/rolling sprites are used for diagonal movement in-game.
