Sonic Robo Blast 2 has officially been confirmed to make an appearance during this year’s SpeedGaming Marathon for No Kid Hungry.

A true labor of love, Sonic Robo Blast 2 is not an official SEGA game, but, rather, a fan-made game that has been in development since 1998. While the game attempts to re-create the classic Sega Genesis-era gameplay, it’s not a typical Sonic game at all thanks to its use of the Doom Engine. Yes, as in the one that they used for the game Doom.

Things are fairly normal aside from that, though. Players are able to pick from Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles—with each character having their own unique abilities—as they race through and explore each of the game’s worlds. Online multiplayer functionality is also included, allowing for co-op modes, head-to-head races, and more.

Argick, a seasoned Sonic speedrunner, will be participating in the Sonic Robo Blast 2 speedrun for the SpeedGaming Marathon. Together with over 70 other speedrunners, Argick will be helping to reach a $30,000 donation goal. The money raised during this event will be donated to No Kid Hungry, a national campaign to end childhood hunger in America.

 

 

The SpeedGaming Marathon will be held from May 13-16. Will you be watching Argick and the rest zip-zooming through 100s of games? Have you played Sonic Robo Blast 2 yourself? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
