Welcome to Speedrun Sunday: that sadistic time of the week when we occasionally dare to challenge both your D-pad’s durability and sanity’s stamina with the ultimate test in video game bragging rights.

Hot off the sticky heels of our devilishly devious, yet dapper Slime-san challenge comes yet another ruthless run that will leave your head spin dashing faster than a star-studded goal post. That’s right, fans of the infamous Blue Blur and his forever foxy friend: we’re taking the heroic hedgehog’s latest blast to the past in Sonic Mania for a spin to find the very best in supersonic stardom.

THE CHALLENGE

How fast can you complete Green Hill Zone – Act I with the Speed Demon himself, Sonic!

 

 
Our claim to fame is 00:32:25, which shouldn’t be too hard for the truly blast processing blessed among you. The participant with the best time by end of day at 12 a.m. ET will receive a $10 eShop card, along with the illustrious title of Speediest Hog That Ever Dared to Dream. Simply snap a screenshot of your leaderboard score or share a full recorded run of your fanciful feat in the Twitter comments for your chance to win.

So whaddaya say? Think you’ve got the quills for it? To quote the remarkably mustached Eggman himself, “Stop your futile efforts. You’re going to make fools of yourselves.”
