Sonic Drift 2


Sonic Drift 2 (ソニックドリフト2 Sonikku Dorifuto Ni?), also called Sonic Drift Racing in Europe, is a kart racing game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series for the Sega Game Gear, developed and released by Sega. The game is the sequel to Sonic Drift that, unlike its predecessor, was released internationally in 1995. Featuring more racecourses and additional items, the game also added more playable characters.

Like in Sonic Drift, the player starts out in the fourth place at the beginning of a Chaos GP circuit. As the player completes a race course, they and each other racer are awarded with points based on their finishing positions, allowing the participants to improve their place:

1st Place: 3 points
2nd Place: 2 points
3rd Place: 1 points
4th Place: 0 points




Sonic Drift 2 has more items and power-ups than in Sonic Drift, most of which included multicolored Monitors.

RingThe traditional Ring which can be collected over the course of a race. If a racer has two Rings (three in Metal Sonic’s case), the racer can perform their own unique Special Ability.
DashA red Monitor that grants a small burst of speed.
Drift 2 YellowMonitor
JumpA yellow Monitor that bounces the racer into mid-air similar to the Spring. Press up on  to trigger it.
Drift 2 BlackMonitor
MineA gray Monitor that contains a mine. Pressing up on  drops the mine on the race course. Touching the mines makes a racer screech to a complete stop.
InvincibleA blue Monitor which makes the racer invulnerable to obstacles and Special Abilities for a few seconds.
SpringRed Springs that will bounce the racer into mid-air. Several race courses have Gorges, that the racers have to cross by using Springs. While flying via a Spring, power-ups or Special Abilities cannot be utilized.
Flash Star
FlashWhen a racer drives into a Flash Star, the entire screen momentarily whites out. In the Versus multiplayer mode, this will happen to both players, regardless of user.
Drift 2 Reverse
