– Full trial towers (which don’t have checkpoints)
– Defeat the replace’s tough-as-nails new boss Tank+, a spider tank that’ll riddle Sonic with bullets on sight, exploding the blue streak right into a fountain of cash
So as to add extra kindling to the blazing issue hearth gamers are experiencing, some gamers are reporting that the sport now requires them to good parry enemies throughout trials. That’s tough, buddy.
