- Genre: Platform
Sonic Colors (2010) is a fast-paced platform game for the Nintendo DS featuring Sega's mascot Sonic the Hedgehog. It makes good use of the dual screens, having Sonic freely zipping from screen to screen, and also features unique "wisp" powerups, which turn Sonic into various other fast-moving objects.

Here, VanillaCoke makes very good use of the superhuman speed and reactions of tool assistance to navigate Colors much faster than a human ever could. Sonic's motion is very carefully tracked at all times to ensure the fastest possible completion. You can read the author's comments for more information.
