Sonic Thrives On Mobile With 100 Million Sonic Dash Downloads

As we found out earlier this year, Sega is focussing its efforts now on the mobile and PC space and they seem to be having some success. The company has announced today that they’ve seen 100 million downloads for their free-to-play Sonic Dash title for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. The runner already has 14 million monthly players, which is quite a substantial user base. This all seems to bode well for Nintendo’s entry with DeNA into the smartphone market later this year.

    1. Sonic Colors was awesome and the Advance games are pretty fun as well. Of course, there are the obvious Bad Apples, *Cough* Sonic 06. Simply Put, MOST of the games since have been below average, but not all of them…

  2. 100M download does not means $100M. it free to play or buy to win. So even if you have those number it does not reflect how much Sega has made with this title. Saying that it would be interesting to have the info

  4. The day that Nintendo announces “We’ve had 5 billion downloads” but only made a few hundred thousand $$$ off it is hopefully the day we stop using free download metrics to show success. Money talks, free downloads are smoke and mirrors. But I suppose for Sega, at least that is cheap marketing.

  5. Honestly 100 million downloads is probably still generating a shit load of money. If only half of them spent one dollar, that’s still 50 million bucs… Odds are some spent more than just one dollar…

    Problem is, you could sell one million copies of a 60 dollar game and generate more cash.

    Sega destroyed the Sonic franchise. They did not respect it. Gave anybody with a computer the rights to make a game… Sega is in the process of dieing a slow death…

      1. I think he is referring to Sega as a software company, not its Parent company the Sammy corporation which makes pachinko machines, which is a very healthy business.

        Sega died when most of its talent left.

    1. Sega didn’t destroy the Sonic franchise, most games except Boom and 06′ range from OK to spectacular, specially Sonic Unleashed, Colors and Generations.

      1. They actually did. The fact they lent the series out to anyone with a computer & placed strict deadlines on them to release the game they were making still puts the responsibility for it’s destruction into Sega’s hands. Destroying the franchise yourself & letting someone else do it for you is the same thing.

  6. Anything under “related articles” is only half the reason why sonic is doing poorly. The other half is game devs who think rushing is a good idea, and think people are sick of Sonic’s speed, when no one on the planet has said that,

      1. Several? Name that exact “several”. I can only name 4 or 5 over the last decade since Dreamcast’s death that were good.

  7. IMO they should have just taken the classic Sonic stages from Generations and made new games based on those. For the first time since the Mega Drive those sections actually felt like a legit successor to those games.

      7. Why are you arguing with this guy at this point? The fact he agrees with Konami’s stance about mobile being the future shows he’s not worth wasting our time on.

      8. Hey now! Leave Shadow the Hedgehog alone! I enjoyed it for the fact they were trying to make Shadow feel less like a carbon copy of Sonic the Hedgehog. Now if the game had you playing Sonic throughout, then I could understand people getting pissed about that game since giving Sonic guns would be like giving Mario guns or making a futuristic Zelda game where Link is using the Master Desert Eagle instead of the Master Sword.

      9. Good for you? I don’t care. I had fun with the game. I guess people hate the idea of any other gameplay in Sonic if it’s not speeding through everything like a bat out of hell.

      2. Puzzle and Dragons, Monster Strike, Clash of Clans, and Plants vs. Zombies. There are many free games available on iOS and Android that are addicting. If you disagree with me, you’re not into simple puzzle and strategy games. To those casual gamers looking for some time to kill in hospital waiting room for your doctor appointment, free games are perfect way to kill your times.
