So this one's odd. It's like a Taxman esq remake of Sonic 1 SMS for the Android. Currently the whole game is playable from start to finish as Sonic with some extra features like the spin dash, super Sonic, the Super Peelout, and they plan on adding a lot more too like Tails, Knuckles, Mighty, and Ray (I think Tails and Knuckles are unlockable right now but they're not done). I just downloaded it myself and it plays pretty damn well. And this team plans on remaking Sonic 2 SMS and Sonic Chaos in a similar format.

How did this go under the radar?

I saw the video yesterday. I also got quite surprised by its quality.
Gotta wait and see how it develops over the following months.

Looks decent. Is it actually finished?

This is pretty cool but the physics feel a little off, was just playing the original on the weekend so it's fresh in my mind. Mostly it's the acceleration, it feels slow. But my phone is chugging a bit playing it for some reason, so maybe it's throwing everything off. I'll have to try the Windows version and see if it's any better.

It looks like the base game is finished. Future versions will include bonus features that have not yet been implemented like a completed Tails and Knuckles, Mighty and Ray, and an 8-bit Marble Zone.

And yea it might not play 100% the same at the original but it's still pretty good. Perhaps a tad sluggish. Regardless this will be my preferred method for playing Sonic 1 SMS for the forseeable future.

Just tried it :o
It has several bugs, but it's not bad at all.

I'll crosspost this on smspower.

I tried rolling down a hill to little avail.

Anyways, this strays too far from the source for my liking, especially as 8bit Sonic 1's simplicity is its strongest aspect. Throwing in things such as the Chaos/TT spring powerup muddies that up.
