Sonny 2 is a combat based RPG where you play as a Zombie, level up and gain items to advance to the next Zone.


Hello World,

Sonny 2 is finally here on Newgrounds! Sorry for the long wait, but we really had to make sure that the major glitches and bugs would be fixed before it's published. This version also has two additional Zones more than the original Sonny 2 release! Here's what the game contains:

- 5 Story Zones.
- 3 UNIQUE Character classes.
- 3 Difficulty game modes.
- Fully voiced dialogues and cutscenes.
- Improved AI!
- A Local PvP Mode.
- 2 Bonus "Boss" Zones.
- Loads of new items, characters, and spells.

I hope you have as much fun playing this as you did the first one! If you thought that the original Sonny was easy, then I recommend you start this game on either Challenging or Heroic mode :)

<3 Krin

PS: "Legend" unlocks Zone 7. GL HF.

As wonderful as expected.

The first game was incredible, but this one has taken the original up more than a few notches. The gameplay itself is entertaining and never really seems to get old, no matter how long you play. The system you have created (and nearly perfected) for the levels and such is genius, and perfect for the type of game this is. I would not change a thing about it, except to make it even bigger with the addition of more games like it.
The AI is quite well-refined as well, and makes the gameplay extremely fun. My only complaint about it is that the commands given don't really seem to have too much influence unless it's a request for healing. But, this is a VERY minor issue that even most games for actual consoles struggle with.
The graphics are great, as expected. I wasn't able to spot even a single glitch in the entire game. The extra little accessories that were ust for kicks cracked me up. They were a great way to make it even more fun and released a lot of tension for me.
There is only one major gap in this game: plot. the game setup is beautiful, but the cutscenes and storyline really lack a lot. It starts out fairly strong in the beginning, but then quickly ebbs out so that it's nothing more, really, than going from place to place beating up enemies. If there were a few cutscenes, even if they're just narratives, it would spice the whole thing up and motivate the players a lot more. I loved it when I went into battle and the characters would make observations and such, but this alone doesn't really provide the character development that your audience craves. To make this game perfect, I would recommend having a set storyline (or script if you like) to base the game off of. This will let you plant surprises and excitement in the game and keep us on our toes throughout the game. Basically, all you need is more plot.
All in all, this is a truly amazing and original series of games. I eagerly await your next one and hope for something even better than this! Thank you for such an incredible RPG!
8/10, but 5/5. This needs to be at the top of newgrounds.

The game is nice though

I'm a bio and I got the baron dude to like 20k hp but then he killed me. It's almost impossible -_-

Almost perfect

This game is a very decent continue of "Sonny", the voices got better, new characters, different RPG system, PVP option and more zones and items are a good addition, but sadly enough this is kinda ruined by the downsides.
The first thing I noticed is more flexible and smarter (as far as I could tell) AI of your teammates, but they still tend to make stupid moves that can significaly prolong the fight, or even lose it. The most obvious of those is that they attack the enemy when he applies "Subversion" on himself, healing him instead of damaging, and they don't even realize it. Even when you set them on "fully defensive" mode for the turn, they might still decide to attack "Subversioned" enemy.
Character classes are kinda unbalanced, it's way easier to beat the game with biological zombie since he's all about damage, and you have Veradux for healing. Quite frankly the other two classes were too tough for me to understand, not to mention that I personaly found most of the abilities useless in combat since every time I used them they didn't really help.
"Heroic" difficulty time limit is very unpleasant, in this game you need time to think through which move would be best to use and how the fight can develop (unless of course you play biological where you have only 2 moves to consider when you're under pressure).
I don't know if it's a bug, or if it was supposed to be like this, but several buffs and debuffs have wrong "remaining active time" display (like this "instant kill" buff of the Warden in the first zone, it says you have 10 turns remaining to live, but you die in 1)
The game was probably developed to be challenging, but in my opinion you overdid it a little. The first "Sonny" was tough, but this game is over the edge, because of this I can't even force myself to "try to beat this nasty bad guy with 10x health and focus than all my team has together for the 20th time" like I did in "Sonny".
Overall this game is good, but it can still be even better.

Krinn responds:

I gladly accept all the complaints you listed in your review, except the one about Subversion.

The ONLY reason Subversion exists is that the AI cannot see it. If the AI can see it, it will have no use... The enemy will never heal a subverted ally or attack a subverted team mate.

If you want to successfully subvert your team without someone else healing it, you need to change their AI to full attack.

All the classes are reasonably balanced, even in PvP. but Biological was made easier to play intentionally: The other ones were there to provide more interesting strategic gameplay, if the player was interested.

The time limit does put pressure on you, but that was so you had to make up your mind and think ahead fast.

Even though I do think it's a gay system compared to proper action RPG, its the closest I thought I could get it. Sometimes pressure makes it a bit more satisfying to beat somebody, even though I admit it does get annoying on longer fights.

Thanks for your comments!

Great game, don't get me wrong.

But the psychological class is a nightmare. How is anyone supposed to enjoy themselves trying to use a class that has to sacrifice health to execute moves and gives the enemy some kind of advantage regardless of which move is used? I think you were trying too hard when you created the class. Should you make another one, either make this class more balanced or eliminate it altogether. The rest is great.

Oh mein Gott xD

Is echt cool von euch, dass ihr das Spiel auch auf Deutsch versucht habt,
Aber den Versuch kann man bestenfalls als lieb gemeint abstempeln xD Das ist ja schon grausam... Die Umlaute fehlen komplett, die Sätze klingen abgehackt und man fühlt sich ein wenig vom Verstand verlassen.

Ich spiele das spiel jetzt auf englisch, der erste Eindruck ist schonmal absolut genial, ^^ und wie gesagt. Ist nicht bös gemeint, aber es fehlt doch einiges.
