The Sonic the Hedgehog Mod swaps out blocks, various items, armor, and Minecraft mobs with Sonic the Hedgehog themed environment items and characters. In order to create items to have a Sonic the Hedgehog theme, the user can craft specific environment land blocks to produce Sonic themed environment blocks. The environment and item blocks that can be forged include grass slabs, grass-over-dirt half slabs, half-grass slabs, half-dirt checkered slabs, full-dirt checkered boxes, full-box dungeon cubes, half-box dungeon cubes, and the traditional spring-loaded red star bounce pads.
As for the item boxes that can be crafted, there is a golden rings item box, magnetic-bubble item box, super-fast running shoes item box, invincibility stars item box, and a one-up Sonic item box.
There are also many other items that can be made, most of which are items that were found within the Chao Gardens from Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 from the Sega Dreamcast. These items range from different color Chao eggs, different color Chaos emerald pieces, various fruits, and many other hidden items as well.
As far as the characters and mobs are concerned with this mod, they too have received a complete modification to represent specific Sonic the Hedgehog themed characters and enemies. The mobs are Chao from Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, of all different colors. Furthermore, the Chao mob characters can also be named. Additionally, there is a Black Market Chao that players can access to purchase Chao Eggs and Chao Fruits.
The characters of the Sonic the Hedgehog mod for Minecraft include virtually all of the Sonic the Hedgehog characters known in the Sonic universe; the character’s designs are representative of the games they were featured in. Although, some modifications may have been tweaked further.
The characters that are in this Sonic mod include Sonic the Hedgehog, Shadow the Hedgehog, Tails the Fox, Silver the Hedgehog, Rouge the Bat, Knuckles the Echidna, Espio the Chameleon, Blaze the Cat, Cream the Rabbit, and Amy Rose complete with her Hammer.
