Another possibility is that it's an early draft of Metropolis Zone, and the "City" in Cyber City and Genocide City is merely a coincidence.

No, that is not a possibility at all.

Why not? I just noticed a striking similarity in how the two look.

And while I do admit I know a little bit about the beta version and its cousins, I'm unsure of why this isn't possible. Mind informing a newbie here?

If you would just have done a bit of research, you would have found this:

ICEknight's site said:

"there was a plan for me to do 2 levels, but early on we realized there wouldn't be time (I think Genocide City was going to be the one?). So I'm pretty sure that's why there are three levels to Metropolis Zone-- since I wasn't going to do another Zone, I had time to do another level." -Tom Payne


ICEknight's site said:

This is the level that according to Mr. Payne had its name changed to Genocide City and then scrapped altogether before he had a chance to start drawing the in-game art. It indeed looks like the average metallic level, as some of the ex-STI members had mentioned previously.

Yeah, Cyber City was meant to be in the game as well as Metropolis, but since he couldn't finish it in time, he just slammed another act on Metropolis. I figure that'd also debunk any possibility of a playable version of the level ever existing, as well.

Ah well, I guess I'm flagged as a "retard," then. Might as well have fun with the 18 (17 after this post) posts that I have left, but I'm pretty much toast at this point. Seemed like a nice community, too...

And in an attempt to salvage this post, I will simply say that we'll probably never know everything that the Sonic Team had planned for Sonic 2. But hopefully, more pieces of the puzzle will continue to surface as time goes on.

Three things wrong with your post.
1) It's just fucking retarded.
2) It's a big bump.
3) Your grammar sucks shit.

Why don't you check the last post date BEFORE you post?

Yes, it is a two-month bump, but you aren't the right person to bitch at a person on the board. Nor am I. Also he is 'contributing' to the topic with his own theory.

@errorTH: I don't think the Sonic Team would do this, although little is known about Genocide City zone. All we truly know is that it was canned early in the development of Sonic 2, and that it is simply Level Select text. Thanks to research, we have come up with many theories in which all three of the levels may have been tied in together at some point during development. I take a few searches into the board, along with the actual website to learn more about the three zones.

Last I remembered, bumping rules aren't applied to the archives. But it's still a good practice to not do so. =P

Yeah, what Thunderspeed said, this topic has been bumped several times and I still see it alive.

I find it quite funny how the "Sonic 2 Long Version" hack has Genocide City as a literal, actual city, and then this concept art surfaces.

Was Green Hill Zone one big green hill?
Don't take Sonic level names literally, people. :P


Or was scrap brain a massive brain splattered everywhere? =P
