Fire Sonic and his pals out of a cannon to try and collect rings and go for distance. After each shot, you are awarded rings based on the distance you traveled. You can also collect rings while being shot. In between shots, you can visit the menu and buy some of Sonic's friends. Each character has different qualities. Cream will flap his ears for extra distance. Amy will bounce really high. Try out each character to see what strategies work best for you.
