Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

Admittedly, Advance 1 had the roughest edges; it got better later on. But maybe a short reverse frame order GIF at 400% zoom isn't exactly representative of the ~1000 frames of character animations present in the game.

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

I'm fairly sure that none of the advance sprites have as many frames as Mania. Besides they're ugly as sin. http://i2.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/146/283/131017250800120110725-22047-4a5dkw.jpg You're free to hate on modern Sonic's design however much you want.

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

And,no, turning them into easter eggs -- zone-specific or otherwise -- is not an ideal solution. I did enjoy looking them in the main stages in Sonic 1 8-bit though. Each level should have Super Sonic only routes. When you play as regular Sonic, you might come across pits filled with spikes. Super ...

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

I also hated advance 1 and 2 for having to either find a special spring in the level or collecting all these special rings. It totally ruins the game momentum for me. I prefer there being a giant ring at the end of an act or having giant rings throughout the stage. Having it this way makes it feel ...

It's Sonic. The pits are bottomless. Redeemed. It's quite astonishing how often I see kids wearing Angry Birds merch. It's such a blatantly mercenary and manufactured property, which admittedly is what sonic has become but without even that initial spark of inspiration and craftsmanship. It's a sla...

Finally, people will no longer have to reference Sonic 06 when they talk about the worst Sonic game!

"Complete version?" Did the game really get so far as to even resemble a finished product? I thought that prototype that leaked a while ago was the last version. Read the article I linked to.

Pardon my ignorance, but I always thought the deal behind Xtreme was less a lack of direction and more due to the project being severely under-resourced. It was really both.
