Tossed In Space, Part 3: Evo-Solution

Sonic's space odyssey continues as he crash-lands on a strange planet... a planet that evolves faster than Sonic can even run. What can Sonic do while whole civilizations rise and fall around him? More importantly, what do the inhabitants of the planet think of our trespassing hedgehog? It's sci-fi with a Sonic spin.

Agent Sonic Vs. Agent Knuckles

It's humor in a jugular vein that will drive you mad with laughter as we skewer one of our favorite cartoon strips (Spy vs. Spy parody).
