SegaSonic Cosmo Fighter (セガソニック・コスモファイター), also known as SegaSonic Cosmo Fighter Galaxy Patrol, is a 1993 children's ride that features Sonic the Hedgehog as he fights enemies in space which appear on the monitor inside the ride. The goal is to try to rescue Sonic's friends (Flicky and the gang) from Dr. Eggman. The game is a shoot-'em-up shown from a top-down perspective.
There are two buttons on the cabinet: one for firing the player's weapons and one for equipping the ship with rocket fists. There is also a lever labeled "SPEED UP" which tilts the entire cabinet. Using the joystick will also tilt the cabinet.
After inserting ¥100/$2.00 AUD, Sonic summarizes to the player that his animal friends from the space station are being targeted by Eggman and that he will go into space to rescue them. He then jumps into a red spaceship, which is then launched into space. Right after that, Eggman appears in a small space pod to deploy bombs and obstacles at Sonic. The player must pursue Eggman while shooting everything that comes their way to earn stars. After reaching the space station, Eggman will begin to attack Sonic directly by attempting to ram his pod into the spaceship. The player must keep avoiding his attacks and shooting back. After enough damage is dealt, Eggman will pull back and outfit his pod with a green spaceship with arms. The player must destroy the arms, followed by the mech's head to finish off Eggman.
If the player manages to defeat Eggman, the game ends with Sonic's mission to save the animals becoming a success, with Sonic telling the player that peace in space has been protected thanks to them, but adding that Eggman might come attacking again, then asking the player to come fight alongside him as well. Depending on how well the player did, the ride rewards them with a rating from one to five stars.
On February 5, 2017, the Dumping Union received a PCB of the game from an anonymous donator. Consequently, it was dumped in celebration of MAME's 20th Anniversary Party and is now supported by MAME. An English version was discovered to have been distributed in Australia and its existence was revealed by Twitter user IAMAMAZING100 on June 23, 2021, who later dumped the PCB and released it on February 19, 2023.
