The latest games to be offered for the low price of free to users of the Epic Games Store are Sonic Mania and Horizon Chase Turbo. And while I cannot speak for Horizon Chase Turbo, I can safely say that Sonic Mania is fan-freaking-tastic.

Sonic Mania is a love letter to Sonic games in the Genesis days. It features familiar 2D gameplay that has been brought into the modern era with a few extra bells and whistles. It is an all-new adventure though you will visit some familiar territory. It all ties into the story, so you'll understand what I mean if you decide to play it.


In keeping with the idea of speed, Horizon Chase Turbo is billed as a "tribute to classic arcade racers" of the 80s and 90s. This is pure arcade style racing that leans more towards old-school visuals than modern eye candy. It features 111 tracks and 48 cities to race through. It also includes 33 unlockable cars and 12 different "cups" to try to win. Multiplayer is limited to local 4-player split-screen or an online Ghost Mode against friends' times and a global leaderboard.


Both titles will be available for you to add for free to your EGS account until July 1st.
