Pros
+3 Playable Characters in the main story mode (4th character in Time attack)
+Plays like old school 2D sonic games with additional gameplay mechanics such as attacks and special moves. Also a bit of like Mega Man with the way enemies attack, health meter, etc
+Each character has a unique PoV in their adventure mode
+Visuals done in the same like of Sega Genesis era games and Pixel art animations are nicely done
+3 modes to play with - Adventure (With cutscenes), Classic (no cutscenes, straight to the game), and Time Attack (time based levels)
+Unlockables such as art work, music and sound effects which can be unlocked through finding cards throughout stages (would require to play the game multiple times which helps replay value)
+Different difficulty modes such as Casual, Easy, Normal and Hard all varying based on damage, health, etc
+Achievement system with leaderboards

Cons
-Some lines and voice acting are cheesy or sound bad
-At some points in the game there are parts where the voice acting during cutscenes is low when music is playing
