There are four playable characters in Sonic Advance. Each character can perform different moves and attacks although the main d-pad control is the same. The four characters are Sonic, Miles/Tails, Knuckles and Amy and they are all playable right from the start. Many people suggest using Sonic when first playing through the zones for the first time as he is virtually average in all sectors.
