|Series||Sonic the Hedgehog|
Multiplayer (up to two players)
In addition, players can earn access to two mini-games (a collect-the-rings game and a match-the-statues game) and a "field trip" section which gives them numerous facts on the various animals in the game. It was the first game developed by Orion Interactive (which later became MGM Interactive) and published by Sega Entertainment and Bap Interactive.
Players pick up nearby answers (ranging from bouncing letters and numbers to balloons with various pictures on them) to shoot back at a blackboard so as to answer it (usually filling in the blank; in the reading section the player must match up pictures with their words instead), or otherwise recycle (much to Sonic's pleasure).
Sonic the Hedgehog himself is not playable, but acts as the guide. Instead, the player must choose from numerous animals to play as during the course of the video game. Doctor Eggman and his robots also show up to steal the player's answer (or in the ring mini-game, to steal all of the player's rings).
Allgame gave Sonic's Schoolhouse a rating of 2.5 stars out of a possible 5. The website also praised the way that questions were modified based on the player's grade level in school (Kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, and fourth grade). This would accommodate the limited vocabulary and knowledge of younger students when providing an adequate level of challenge for them.
