It's about time Dr Eggman made an appearance in the Bronze Award-winning Sonic Dash, don't you think?

Guess what? Yep, he just has.

In the latest update to Sega and Hardlight's Blue Blur-starring endless-runner, Sonic's moustachioed rival has "arrived".

You'll have to dodge across the lanes as Eggman drops missiles and mines in your path in the Eggman Boss Battle.

Furthermore, Sega and Hardlight have taken this opportunity to add some new achievements for Silver the Hedgehog.

Finally, Sega and Hardlight have announced that a new global challenge is on the way. "Fantastic prizes" will be up for grabs, including another collectible character.

Sonic Dash is free to download from the App Store [download] and Google Play [download].
