[Hidden Palace Really Hidden?]

If Hidden Palace is so Hidden, Why It's the 3rd. Level show in The demo mode in Sonic 2 Beta ?

To tease the player?

Quote

Maybe Hidden Palace could be just A SIMPLE LEVEL. (Like Aquatic Ruin, Really Pretty, But isn't Hidden, and there's no purpose to be Hidden...)

The interviews and magazine previews state that it was indeed hidden.

Quote

People can't say things by the name, examples:

"Emerald Hill"  WHERE IS THE EMERALD?!
(I Know! The Emerald was moved to HPZ!)

Emeralds are green.

Quote

"Death Egg" WHERE'S THE EGG?!
(The "egg" format of Death egg can't be comproved in Sonic 2, causin you don't fell an oval format in Death Egg... I Fell a "square" walking trought DEZ... Just a Tube with Mecha Sonic and that Huge Robotnik...)

The "egg" is a reference to Eggman. Also, it looks like the final boss is also called like that, and has Eggman's shape.

Quote

Like we can't say "Genocide City" is a place where people is Killed, or a place full of corpses and lots of blood on the Floor... Because GCZ have no graphics.

Just some way to denote evilness in the title, I guess.

Quote

And I not understand why Bumper is connected to a Time Travel ...

Their designs state how they use different palettes in the past and present levels.

Sonic jumps over That "Spikes", and They Work like Springs, and This "Thing" shoot balls in two directions... This is our Banper?

Yes, that's what it was turned into. You can see the bubblers turned into rocks in Lava Reef as well.

Nope. Death Egg is a reference to the Flying BALL in the sky, IN SONIC 2, and I CAN PROOF THAT!

In level select screen, When "Death Egg" is selected, what you see in the "Preview" Icon? A FLYING BALL IN EARTH ORBIT.

So, the Death Egg should be our common flying ball in Sonic 2 too. I don't think is a reference to Dr. Robotnik...

[EDIT]

Sorry, I wanna quote only the text about Death Egg.

1- You didn't need to quote all that.
2- The final boss is also called Death Egg, OMG.

I thought the final boss had no official name.

I was under the impression that it was called the 'Eggsterminator', though that was probably the U.S. name. Hell, I used to call that thing the goddamn 'Technobot' when I was a kid, so who am I to comment. =P So, yeah. Guess this post was actually kinda pointless.

And, the whole Death Egg argument? Look, it's a flying spherical space station which looks like the Death Star (similar in name aswell as looks, aren't they?), except with Eggman's face structured onto it. =P Look closely if you can't see that; it took me the best part of eight years to realise that wasn't something they just added for Sonic 3 / S&K.

It's also a Death machine, made by Eggman. Death. Egg. What part of that isn't simple? If the final boss is also named 'Death Egg', it still makes sense for that - it's a Death machine, that looks like-- Do I really need to continue? =P

And In The Magazine Interview, Look what Yuji Naka says about Death egg:

"And Death Egg, Where you get to visit robotnik's ship"

The Villan is Called ROBOTNIK, so No way to be a reference to Eggman, and there's "Robotnik Ship", what proofs than "Death Egg" is a reference only to the Ball in Earth Orbit.

[Joke]Why it's called Death Egg if it is a ball?[/joke]

Way! I'm not a Oldbie!

DAMN! I FALL IN THIS SHITTY APRIL'S FOOL JOKE!

- The interview was most likely translated, with "Eggman", a name the western public had no association with, being replaced by "Robotnik", which is the name they would have known him by. To the Japanese, he's always been Eggman.

- The 'Egg' is likely a reference to 'Eggman' - Wing Fortress contains numerous signs with 'Egg' or 'Eggman' written on them, so why shouldn't Death Egg be named after him?

- The 'ball in space' IS Eggman's 'ship'. =P

So, yeah. =P How this got from 'Banper's amazing school of facts' to the 'Death Egg Debate', I don't know. But it's pretty damn self-explanatory, AFAIK.

OMG! It's write Eggman-01 in Wing Fortress! (Now I Saw that.)

But Keep in Mind in Magazine, There's no reference to Wing Fortress, (probably Wing Fortress is "Death Egg Act 0", Because Music is Avaible on beta.)

And the discussion about Bumper/Banper was turned in this discussion when I mentioned the article mentioned before (in another page here) for contest some odd things in Article.

"Emerald Hill" WHERE IS THE EMERALD?!

I know this part has been 'a bit' taken care of, but this is the one time in the entire history of Sonic that I can remember that "Emerald" refers not to Chaos Emeralds, but to emeralds' traditional green color. Thus paints titled 'Emerald Green', Ireland being called the 'Emerald Isle', etc.

"Death Egg" WHERE'S THE EGG?!

Quote

flying spherical space station which looks like the Death Star

As in the sencond statement, I, too, choose to think that the Death Egg is a Star Wars knockoff (obligatory link to my Star Wars ending with Death Egg hoax: My Hoaxes. It's hoax #7.

Quote

Also, it looks like the final boss is also called like that, and has Eggman's shape

I was unaware of that name for the boss. I always called it something along the lines of, "Robotnik's big ***damn robot that looks like him and has spiky hands of doom"

EDIT: Fixed link

*Big the Cat impression* Froggy! Where are you? *shot*

Sorry, couldn't resist. :P

Anyway, I dunno about you guys, but I think the bumper ball sprite is Casino Night-ish.

There are 8 signposts between the 2 acts. More than enough to get all the emeralds in that zone alone.

Yeah, seriously. Even when I was 10 years old, I was zipping through and collecting all the Chaos Emeralds before entering Chemical Plant. lol. Now if only I'd had friends back then to brag about that to... 'cause I was young at the time, it was a big thing for me... I'm gonna shut up now.
