Lightspeed Dash/Ring DashSometimes you will come across Rings with auras around them. Press the Y Button when near them to collect them quickly and follow their trail.Lightspeed Dashing normally leads to shortcuts.

Color Powers

When you play Planet Wisp Acts 1 and 2, both Sonics will have to use Color Wisps like in the original Sonic Colors.

Classic Sonic uses Pink Spike Wisps in Act 1 and Modern Sonic uses Orange Rocket Wisps in Act 2.

Skills Customization

Similar to Sonic and the Secret Rings, you can customize both Sonics with different skills that will help during the Regular Acts in the game.

Classic and Modern Sonic can have up to 5 different Skill Sets, but each Skill Set can only use 100 Equip Points or less.

Altogether, there are 36 different Skills. I've have split them up into 3 categories: Timeless, Classic, and Modern.

Timeless Skills

These are Skills that either Sonic can use. There are 8 Timeless Skills total.

Other Notes about Classic Skills:

  • You have to press the Y Button in order to use Flame Shield, Aqua Shield, Thunder Shield, a Skateboard (Boardmaster), and Ring Time
  • shields, Skateboard, and Ring Time will regenerate after losing a life

White World

When you first start a new game, you'll automatically start with Classic Sonic in Green Hill Act 1. After watching the first cutscene, Modern Sonic will start off in the White World, which is a 2D hub which as the name suggests, has no color.

To return color to the White World, both Sonics must Clear Stage Acts and Challenges. In other words.

The White World is broken up into 5 areas: The Extras Area, [[Genesis Era]], [[Dreamcast Era]], Modern Era, and Final Area.

Extras Area

This is part of the White World is an area where you can relax, shop, and look at your records and unlockables.

Information Pod

Skill Shop

Collection Room

Stage Gates

In the White World, you'll find Stage Gates which are portals to the main levels of the game. The first time you enter a Stage Gate, it will appear as ??? and the picture in the description will be fuzzy. After playing one of its Acts for the first time, the name of the Level and its picture will appear.

Act 1 Levels are the traditional 2D Sonic Stages similar to Sonic the Hedgehog 2, where you play as Classic Sonic.

Act 2 Levels are the current 3D and 2D split Stages similar to Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Colors, where you play as Modern Sonic.

If you Clear Act 1 of a Stage the next Act 1 will open. Same with Act 2, if you clear Act 2 of a Stage, the next Act 2 Stage will open.

Also after Clearing Act 1 or Act 2 of a Stage Gate, some of the colors will return to the Stage Gate. If you Clear both Acts, the Stage Gate will be fully restored, and you'll save one of Sonic's friends.

Information Pod

Information Pod is a device that answers certain questions and keeps track of your progress in the game.

Challenge Gates

After you Restore all 3 Stage Gates of an Era, Challenge Gates will appear above the Stage Gates, as well as Boss Keys.

Challenge Levels are similar to Stage Acts, except that there are different requirements for clearing a level and there are 5 different Challenges for each Stage Act, adding up to a total of 90 Challenges.

Challenge TypeIconDescription
SpeedOne of Sonic's ShoesChallenges where Sonic has to get to the Goal quickly
TechniqueOne of Sonics GlovesChallenges where Sonic has to use certain moves
DoppelgangerShows a Grey Sonic HeadChallenges where Sonic must race a Ghost version of himself
FriendsShows one of Sonic's Friend's headChallenges where Sonic must either get help from or compete against 1 of his friends
EnemyShows a MotobugChallenges where certain enemies are overpopulated

RingShows a RingChallenges where Sonic must get to the end with a certain amount of Rings
JuggleShows the Goal PostChallenges where Classic Sonic must juggle the Goal Post to a specific spot
RescueShows a FlickyChallenges where Sonic must free a certain amount of animals from capsules

More Information about Challenges:

  • In Challenges, Ranks are based on how fast you can Clear the level
  • there are 7 Skills that will be added to the Skill Shop after Clearing certain Challenges
  • It's also mandatory to complete at least 1 Challenge in order to grab the Boss Keys. In other words, you have to complete 9 Challenges from different Stages to complete the Story.
  • If you clear all 10 Challenges for a Stage, the colors and objects will return to the platforms above the Stage Gate

Bonus Bells and Notes

Once you've Cleared a Challenge, a Bonus Bell will appear above the gate.

If you ring a Bonus Bell, it will release either a Blue or Gold Note that flies around the White World for 20 seconds. If you touch the notes before they disappear, you will unlock Artwork (if the Note is Blue) or Music (if the note is Gold) in the Collection Room. If you miss the 20 seconds, just hit the bell again to restart the chase.

If a Bonus Bell is Gold, that means it contains a Note and grey Bonus Bells are empty.

Bonus Bells unlock content in a particular order regardless of what Challenges you complete or what Rank you get for a Challenge.

Example 1:

  • You have cleared 8 different Challenges but you have not collected any Notes
  • You hit one of the 8 Bonus Bells
  • The Note will be blue and contain Artwork 41

Example 2:

  • You have cleared 20 different Challenges but you have only collected 9 Notes
  • You hit one of the 11 Bonus Bells
  • The Note will be Gold and contain the Music Track, Sweet Mountain

Statue Room

The Statue Room is actually a secret area in the game that SEGA was going to announce officially but got revealed by fans.

Like the name suggests, it is a gallery with 3D statues of Sonic characters and items featured in Sonic Generations and other Sonic games. To unlock the statues, you have to enter a 6 digit password for each one.

To enter the Statue Room, go to the Collection Room, with either Sonic, then press and hold the Back Button.

Modern Sonic can home attack them from a distance. Tri Springs, which appear in Modern Sonic's Acts, have 3 stars on them.
Spring PolesBothThese are poles that hang on the side of walls. Either Sonic can bounce on these to get upward. Landing on the red part will send Sonic into the air the highest.

Traps and Hazards

These are some items, objects, and anything you want to avoid and be aware of.

NameAct 1 or 2?Description

Pop-Up SpikesBothwhat appears as a black material on the surface is actually Pop-Up Spikes. When the spikes are up, Sonic takes damage. Quickly get across it while the spikes are down.
Spiked BallsBothIf you thought spikes were bad, now they can move around! Make sure not to touch them.
Spiked TrapsBothFloating platforms with spikes on the bottom or the sides. They move when Sonic gets close enough. Quickly hop on top of the horizontal ones it after they drop.
BuffersAct 2 Onlysometimes in the Modern Sonic Acts you'll notice a red wooden train buffer in the path ahead while running. You'll have to hop/Jump over them otherwise Sonic will trip if he runs into them and you'll temporary lose control. There are other objects that work similar to buffers in the game
Getting CrushedBothIn the past, when Sonic got crushed, it normally cost a life. In Generations, in most cases you lose Rings instead and temporary loss of control.
DrowningBothAfter either Sonic has been underwater for 25 seconds a countdown will begin. If Sonic stays in the water until the countdown ends, he drowns and you lose a life.
Swinging BladesBothThese appear in Rooftop Run. Modern Sonic can slide under them.

Boss Keys

Each time you restore all 3 Stage Gates of an era, 3 Boss Keys will appear in the White World near the Challenge Gates of the same levels.

However, even if you find them you can't touch them until you complete at least 1 Challenge, either from Act 1 or Act 2, from the same level.

Once you Collect all 3 Boss Keys, you can unlock Boss Gates in the hub.

Skill Points

After Clearing a level, once your score is determined, you will be rewarded Skill Points based on your score.

For Stage Acts, Rival Battles, and Boss Battles, it's always your score divided by 100, and rounded off. If the decimal is 4 or below, an extra point will be added.

Final Score/100 = Total Skill Points

EXAMPLE 1

  1. Player 1 Cleared Chemical Plant Act 2 and scored 49410
  2. 49410/100 = 494.1
  3. 494.1 rounds out to 494
  4. The decimal was below 4, so an extra point is added.
  5. Player 1 received 495 Skill points from a score of 49410

EXAMPLE 2

  1. Player 1 Defeated Metal Sonic and scored 50680.
  2. 50680/100 = 506.8
  3. 506.8 rounds out to 507
  4. Player 1 received 507 Skill Points from a score of 50680

I haven't figured out how it works for the Challenges yet.

Sega Genesis

Floating above the Green Hill Challenge 1, 2, and 3 gates is working Sega Genesis, complete with copy of Sonic the Hedgehog. The only thing missing is a controller.

Luckily, Omochao is selling one in the Skill Shop and once you buy it, you can play the original Sonic the Hedgehog game through your Sonic Generations game.

Chemical Plant Stage Gate

Availability: After Clearing Green Hill Act 2
  • First Game Appearance: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Sega Genesis
  • Sonic Friend Rescued: Amy
  • Background Info: Chemical Plant is a huge factory that creates different materials. After Classic Eggman took over the plant, he used it for his own purposes, including creating the purple liquid, known as Mega Muck, which he used against Sonic. Sonic and Tails managed to defeat Eggman and free the plant from his control. It seems that since the last time Modern Sonic and Modern Tails have been here, new traps and hazards have been added to the plant.

The Chemical Plant Boss Key is floating next to the Chemical Plant Challenge 3 Gate.

  • Summary:

Walkthrough: From the beginning you can take the high or the low path.

If you take the low path, you will run through 2 Shuttle Loops.

There's a switch that will switch the path Sonic takes (and will take him to Red Star Ring 1).

If you jump over the Switch, Sonic will go pass a blue chemical loop and towards 4 big blocks that will move so Sonic can reach 2 platforms. At the top is a Spiny so be careful.

  • 2nd Checkpoint
  • Continue right until Sonic runs over a Springboard and launches over or into some Mega Muck. Continue to the right, break the chemical box, and he will hit a series of Springs. Once he lands, Mega Muck will start to raise. Touch the Red Spring to get above it.
  • Next, Sonic will have to get pass a blue chemical wall loop and a Spiny. As you continue, you should find an Extra Life Item Box to the right. Climb using the Blocks and avoid the Blue Chemical loops and the Spiny to reach a Red Spring.

From here, you can go 2 ways:

If you hit the Springs and use your momentum to go up the incline, you can hit a Yellow Spring to the left.

  • You will end up going down a chemical slide.
  • If you jump before taking the chemical slide, you will end up going down another chemical slide.
    • Once you land, jump and go over the red chemical platforms to reach a path where you will find Red Star Ring 4
    • Hit a Spring, to be taken to a path.
  • If you don't jump before the chemical slide,

Continue running to the right and you will hit a Springboard and reach the Goal Post.

Goal Post

Chemical Plant Act 1 Red Star Rings

Red Star Ring 1At the start of the level jump across the 3 platforms to reach the higher tube path. Follow it to find the Red Star Ring in-between 2 blue chemical balls.
Red Star Ring 2From #2, run back to the beginning of the split path and take the bottom path. Go straight to the right without jumping. You should hit a hit Spring that sends you up an incline and to the Red Star Ring, which is floating above clear tube plug.
Red Star Ring 3From the 1st Checkpoint, go as fast you can down the incline and use your momentum to reach the higher platform to the right. Jump over the Spinys and hit the 2 Springboards. When you reach the incline, charge up your Spin Dash and rocket up to one of the platforms to the left. Ride the platform to the top left area with the chemical slide and Jump across 3 more platforms above the slide to find the Red Star Ring.
Red Star Ring 4On the chemical slide, Jump before the gap, and run across the platforms, slide down another slide, hit a spring and run up an incline. Use the Springs to take you up to the Red Star Ring.
Red Star Ring 5From #4, drop back down and backtrack to where the platforms are and run to the left and into the Mega Muck section. It's floating near a Grabber and a Booster.

Availability: After Clearing Chemical Plant Act 2
  • Summary: Modern Sonic's version of Sky Sanctuary has multiple pathways that lead through different temples and ruins in the sky.

Walkthrough: The stage begins with Sonic grinding off a Rail and hitting 1 of 3 Dash Rings.

After he lands, 3 Eggrobos will stand in his path. Behind the Eggrobos are 2 clouds that Sonic can bounce off instead of taking the steps to the left. Once Sonic makes it to the top of the stairs, he will run past a Omochao thats in front of the Trick Ramp that tells him about Trick Ramps.

After hitting the Trick Ramp, Sonic go number of ways to the Checkpoint:

  1. The Low Path:
  2. The High Path

1st Checkpoint

From the Checkpoint jump into the Rainbow Rings (where Red Star Ring 2 is) and land on the incoming platform.

There are 2 paths you can take from here.

If you take the Left Path: Go to the left and Jump into the incoming Rainbow Rings. Next, Home Attack the 2 Egg Robos and touch the Dash Panels to the right.

  • 2nd Checkpoint (Left Path)
    • From the 2nd Checkpoint, Sonic will grind towards a red spring that takes him to a group of Elevator Poles. Jump across both of the Elevator Poles to reach a floating platform. To the left of the platform are 2 Eggrobos. Carefully, use the Homing Attack to take them out and follow the trail of Rings to another Elevator Pole.
    • Jump off the pole to the left, touch the Dash Panels, and run into the the temple.

Inside the the temple are 3 Egg Robos, a normal one and 2 black ones. If you go to the back of the temple, you will find a 10 Ring to the right and an Extra Life further behind where the 10 Ring.

From here, there are 2 paths:

  • Regular Path: Go past the Eggrobos and the fountain to touch the Checkpoint.

3rd Checkpoint

While the top path is definitely faster than the bottom path, both will intersect and led Sonic into a 2D section.

From here, Sonic can:

  • Top Path: keep boosting and run into a spring which will lead you to an platform with 3 Rings. Jump to the right and Home Attack the Egg Robo to land on a cloud. Bounce off the cloud to reach another cloud and hop up into a Dash Ring. The Dash Ring will take you to a Rail that goes through a small tunnel. Once Sonic comes out of the tunnel Jump to land onto the next platform. Next, quickly Home Attack the 2 Egg Robos to land on a platform and Jump over the spikes.

From here, you should be able to see 2 Rainbow Rings. The top one leads to a higher path (and Red Star Ring 4) and the bottom one leads to the regular path.

4th Checkpoint

On the bottom path, there are 2 red platforms that fall after Sonic steps on it. If you fall, you will be in an area with 3 Eggrobos. Use your Homing Attack to take them out and hit the Tri Spring.

Either way, you should end up near 2 Eggrobos near a spinning platform. Hit the Tri Springs to go up and you should find an Extra Life.

Now, you can Jump across the Spinning Platforms, hit the Step Switch to activate the stairs, and grab the Pulley to go above to the higher path, or jump down to the bottom path.

If you jump down to the bottom path, it goes into 2 paths again both with Checkpoints.

5th Checkpoint

Run across the platform and hit the Springs. From here, you should be able to Home Attack the middle Eggrobo and then the top one. Next, jump up the steps and the platform and hit the Tri Springs to reach a rail. Grind across it and Jump to reach the Warp Point.

After Sonic touches the Warp Point, you be near Checkpoint 6.

6th Checkpoint

Grab the Pulley and carefully run across to the fallen column. From here you go up or take the bottom path again.

If you take the bottom path, you will find Dash Panels that take you to a Eggrobo near Checkpoint 7.

7th Checkpoint

From here Sonic will have to Quick Step to the left, to the right, and then to the left again. Sonic will go into the last 2D section of the level.

Theres a shortcut here but I havent found it yet.

Anyway, for the regular path, he will grind onto a Rail and jump towards a Spring or fall to where a Dash Panel is. If you fall to where the Dash Panel is, boost up to the incline to reach 2 clouds that you need to bounce off of to reach an area.

Now, in this Sonic has to hit the Switch to continue on. However, as soon as you touch the switch, an Eggrobo will appear to try and touch another switch, which will block off the quick path, and force Sonic to go above.

Race it to the switch and destroy it before it can touch the switch.

Last Checkpoint

Grind across the rail to the last temple. Inside are 4 Eggrobos. Get past them to touch the Springs to the left. As soon you reach the platform, parts of it will crumble. Carefully walk to the other side of the platform, jump across, and Home Attack the 3 Eggrobos.

Finally, hit the Dash Panels to run on a path that spirals and is slowing crumbling behind you. You can drift here as well to get around it faster. At the end of the path are Springs that will send you towards a Pulley, that takes you to the Goal Ring.

3D Section: The Boss Battle will always start out in 3D. On the regular 3D path, Sonic will have to dodge attacks while trying to get close enough to land a hit.

First Big Ramp

2D Section: After Egg Dragoons attacks twice in 3D, the camera will switch to a 2D section. If you are fast enough, you should be able to Home Attack Egg Dragoon before the Ice Crusher attack, during the brief moments after Dragoon Breath 2D stops.

Skydive Section: After getting hit 5 times, the field will switch to Skydive as Sonic and Egg Dragoon go through a purple portal. Now you have to carefully dodge the Drill Missiles while holding the Boost Button and getting close enough to do a Homing Attack. You be able to get in 2 hits at the most during this time. After leaving a Skydive Section, Egg Dragoon will be vulnerable to Homing Attacks.
