Sega Trivia Test #5
How well do you know Sonic? - by RaptoR

My pants are full of gems!!!
PlanetDreamcast's Sega Trivia Test (STT) appears every so often to test your knowledge of Sega-related trivia. Last time we quizzed you on Treasure, a little-known developer, yet capable to churning out kickass games. This time we're quizzing you on everyone's favorite spiky Sega mascot. No, not Ristar, Sonic! Sonic the Hedgehog was the game which saved the Mega Drive (Genesis) from being what would later be known as Saturn-like. Sonic's blend of fast action, colorful graphics and cartoony effects appealed to many gamers, and resulted in many sequels and merchandise. Even Sonic shoes, chips, notepads, pencils, dog collars, etc. appeared across the world, and were bought by thirsty fans of Sega's blue hog. But how much do you know about Sonic? Think you know everything about everything about everything about Sonic? PlanetDreamcast thinks we know more than you, so prove us wrong, and take the test!

Jump in and answer, and then take a look below and see how you do. The test automatically scores your responses and lets you know where you stack up on the next page. If you think this is too easy, or you think you can stump us, why not send us some questions? If we like 'em, they could be featured on a future Sega Trivia Test. Anything else on your mind? Send it our way.
