Sonic Mania is a 2D entry in the Sonic the Hedgehog series that was released on August 15, 2017. It emulates the gameplay of the classic Genesis games with 2D sprite animations. The music is composed by Tee Lopes.

The game features new and remixed stages. The stages are:

Green Hill Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog (1991))
Chemical Plant Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog 2)
Studiopolis Zone (new)
Flying Battery Zone (Sonic & Knuckles)
Press Garden Zone (new)
Stardust Speedway Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog CD)
Hydrocity Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog 3)
Mirage Saloon Zone (new)
Oil Ocean Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog 2)
Lava Reef Zone (Sonic & Knuckles)
Metallic Madness Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog CD)
Titanic Monarch Zone (new)
Egg Reverie Zone (new)

Elemental shields also return as well as a new added mechanic called Drop Dash, which instantly dashes into a Spin Attack upon landing after a jump. The Drop Dash only works for Sonic the Hedgehog, however, while Miles "Tails" Prower and Knuckles the Echidna retains their own abilities from Sonic 3 & Knuckles. All three characters can be used through the entire game.
