I absolutly loved the neat touches, like the palette changing within the level and the music changing when you die. I also loved some of the changes to the badniks, like the Newtron moving faster.
I'l have to play it again later, due to being slightly hungover, but I enjoyed what I played so far

Some of the absolutely unfair traps I ran into remind me of my early childhood, bringing back memories of spending months at a time practicing certain levels just to get past them like Battletoads, Snake Rattle and Roll and Double Dragon. Or those utterly evil moments in the Megaman series. Feels great to relive that again in something modern.

But besides that, the code isn't the intention of this game, but the layouts, and like the oher people here said, they are just amazing! I must admit that I don't think they are very hard, but that's probably because I got used to savestates so much, that I even use them without thinking.
But well, hope your restart will help making this game even more interesting and less unfinished. =)

I like that! I've always been a big fan of this hack although I liked 0.05 very much due to it's simplicity.
The ROM name says it is VERY unstable so it was't surprising that there were so many bugs and some solids in Labyrinth missing. Can't wait for a more stable version.

Seriously, how difficult is downloading a 10mo pack?
On the other hand, the work done on the stages is just unbelievably awesome, extremely detailed and the colors are just perfect. The sprites look also very interesting though I'd wait for a new build to judge that.

Spring bug that I'm not sure on how it happens. Internally the code is identical to the Sonic 1's spring code.
Selbi's Crabmeat working.
MZ3. Foreground is in development yet.
MZ2. I'm not sure if would be good to edit the foreground art or no.
A bit more of MZ1.
Labyrinth Act 3. Previously being 'Act 4'. But Act 4 was removed, so LZ will have 3-act only in the final hack's version.
LZ2. Thanks Mistergambit for the art.
LZ1. This features the 8-bit version of Labyrinth Zone. Also included the 8-bit level song, but in a completely remastered version. Also, the level background was remastered too.
SYZ2 and Sonic using his new ducking animation.
SYZ1 in very beta development phase. I didn't like my previous graphical stuff of this art, so I decided to restore the whole art for make a completely new one (like I did on LZ3).
GHZ3 with finished art, except for the solid walls (that doesn't uses the same level graphics yet).
Two new drums added. Thanks to Daleksam.
New animation for Sonic's spring up.
Completely new animation. Courtesy of Eduardo Knuckles.

Just wanted to point out that deformation bug in the background; the cut cloud.
Also sure there aren't 2 springs in the same place?

I put only one. This same strange thing happens lots of time on various of the springs on the game.
