アーケード版ソニック・ザ・ヘッジホッグ
仕様書にしてはあっさりしすぎじゃね? 攻撃ボタンで「体が丸くなり攻撃状態となる」とか。うん、知ってる。サウンドはbgmだけやった気がする。エッグマンのテーマが好き。

These spec documents for the arcade version of Sonic the Hedgehog go into too much detail, huh? Like, pressing the attack button "will make turn his body into a round shape to attack." Yeah, I know. As for the sound, I was only concerned with the BGM. I liked Eggman's theme.


Here are the images from twitter:

地面が崩れる - Crumbling Land
水 - Water
砂 - Sand
全能の塔 - Final Tower (more literally, Almighty Pagoda)

I didn't know that the Sonic arcade game existed. 😮

This confirms what Manabu Kusunoki said about the game originally just being called "Sonic The Hedgehog".

You can make out some of the writing on the pages underneath. Anything interesting?

Ooooh indeed. I didn't know there were any lyric versions of that song (though maybe not a shock after Outrun's After Tonight...)

There is this, but it's not that.

And now I can't help but wonder if every track in the game had vocals. And indeed, other games.

I clicked the video ready for laughing, but... After Burner theme just can't sound bad. I like this, as cheesy as it is.
