Sonic's gameplay style is similar to his gameplay style in Sonic Advance. He can spin dash, insta-shield and is the fastest character.
Like Sonic, Tails' gameplay style is simalr to his of Sonic Advance. He can spin dash, fly temporarily and can swim.
The most powerful character in the game, and apart from Amy, he is the only character to have melee attacks, with is play style being similar to Sonic Advance. He has a spin dash, can glide and can climb walls.
Amy is, again, similar to her Sonic Advance playstyle. She can't spin dash, can hit with a hammer, and at full speed, can do a somersault to jump twice as high. She also curls into a ball while jumping, unlike Sonic Advance.
Shadow is one of the three new characters in this game. He can spin dash, is as fast as Sonic, and can use a Chaos Spear to fire a projectile in front of him.
Silver is another new character. He can use his psychokinesis by using the Psy-Dash, which is a replacement of the spin dash. He can also hover temporarily, and pick up enemies at a certain range.
Blaze is the final new character in this game. She can double jump, use a fire spin, which replaces the spin dash, and can pounce down as an attack.
