Sonic Runners (iOS/Android) - Thread Version 2.0

Recommended Posts

My only real issue with this game was the gambling feature. It was a shady way of tip-toeing around the law to introduce the habit to children in a very underhanded manner.

If not for the roulette wheel primarily and the money/gambling focus in general, it would've been alright for me. I enjoyed it now and then for what it's worth, but every single time I played it there was so much "GO TO THE ROULETTE NOW!!!" focus that all I could do was flip SEGA the bird in the end.

No more gambling in my Sonic, thanks.

Even though I had a lot of bad memories with this I still had a lot of good ones too, So this is kind of sad. I wish they could make it offline at least in case I want to play it later but I guess not. But in the end at least I enjoyed it.

Here's to hoping that the assets (and music) for the game will be fully accessed soon (there's an instrumental version of Dreams of an Absolution that was used in a cutscene from the birthday launch event somewhere in my files for the game and I never bothered deleting the cache)

oh shit waddup boi!

Looks like Sonic Paradise wants people who still have their data of Runners in hopes of getting an offline version of it.

Here's what you hardcore Runners madmen  people need to do!

I should try that then. I have the game since worldwide launch and never bothered clearing the cache, unless they actually started removing unused game data at some update

I once did this before. Uploaded com.sega.sonicrunners (and every other related asset) on another android phone (because mine cracked) and it worked exactly the same.

the most scary thought is that they store players data on the servers too.

Every asset? I don't think you had all of them due to the fact that they wait until you play with a new character to actually download those assets

No as in the data files. Not everything was in the com.sega.sonicrunners file. There were a couple lying around outside it. I think. I did this months ago.

Alas, at last, rest in peace, Sonic Runners.

*Is actually shamefully glad Sonic Runners is leaving because I accidentally deleted the app and had to start all over when before I had Vector before I even got Tails and the Roulette was almost always in my favor*

I think somethings planned, I mean look at dash. NO support for how long and it's still going? Somethings up and I need answers 

Big difference. Dash can be played offline. Because of how Runners is designed, that means SEGA has to constantly pay to keep online servers going, and pay for maintenance of the app. Sure, they could make Runners an offline game but we also don't know how much money, time, and effort would need to go into changing Runners' entire design to support offline play as a good deal of it seems to have been based entirely around being online. If Runners was a failure financially, then it's very likely SEGA just wants to cut their losses instead of losing money maintaining a game that very clearly isn't making that money back (Almost definitely because people hated what 2.0 did and how much bs the roulette is)

You think that's annoying, did you get your favorite character a DAY after it announced the end?
