Actually I wouldn't mind the beat of the drum and the melody from the onion shaped guitar (the melody played near the beginning). It'd bring something new and original to the stage. I have no idea how the hell that would sound when converted to the genesis format, but you never know.


One of the reasons I chose that one was that it was remarkably similar to that first Alex Kidd in Miracle World song.

Heh, I found the song you were talking about. You're right about the similarities though I just hope you guys can make it sound better. =P

Just an idea but how about the boss be Eggman in a nurse's outfit? Free health care in Canada, right?

Nah, he'll be riding a flying moose-plane and laying down maple syrup so Sonic will get stuck and slow down and he can drop his moose bombs on him.

Mosses badnicks HAVE to be in this level. It's a Canadian rule! That boss concept before me made me chuckle, but I think it could work.

Rough Riding Zone? :rolleyes:

Actually, I'll be amazed if the final name isn't a stereotype in some way. =P

Some art I made for this level a week or two ago, as I really don't like my art that's in the fist post of this topic.

I think I have a good name for the zone. How about Maple Vista Zone? I saw the mountains and the waterfalls in the background and the first word that came to mind was the word "vista."

Maple Frost Zone could work, too; it's not a winter stage, but "autumn" in the name just doesn't seem to do the stage justice.

Since it's a Canadian-themed level filled with maple trees, I agree that maple should be part of the name.

As for the Robotnik fight, there should be something involving the maple trees in the zone. There's so many of them that it'd be a shame for Robotnik to let them go to waste, and you know how Robotnik loves messing with the environment. My first thought was something involving maple leaf whirlwinds. Maybe Sonic has to avoid the whirlwind Robotnik creates (kind of like in Sonic 3's Hydrocity fight) while he sucks up the leaves. There could be a giant fan to suck up the leaves with on the bottom with a spike in the center. Then when Robotnik gets low enough, you could have a chance to hit his machine before he shoots a condensed ball of leaves out of the cannon at the front.

What do you think? Sound good?

The only thing bothering me is that it doesn't look much polygon-like(in my opinion), and that it has some messy pixels.

Misconception; health care isn't free in Canada, it's socialized.

When I saw this topic, I was expecting something extremely stereotypical, but was pleasantly surprised when I saw the art. Then I saw you guys' comments... Thanks for not deceiving. :P

Anyways, Maple Zone sounds too minimalistic, although I do like the mention of Maple in the title; seems very fitting with the general theme. Maple Mountain doesn't sound too bad, same with Maple Hill although it feels tacked on. How about one of these:

Maple Haven Zone
Maple Track Zone
Maple Acre / Acres Zone
Maple Pass Zone
Maple Cross Zone
Maple Kicksyourass Zone

Come on, the theme has to be a remix of this if we want the Canadian vibe.

I think a standard Maple Hill would be fine, seeing as no other zone in the project is going with the Hill title. I think it adds something new while still harking back to the classics.

Can you please stop joking about Canada and all? The canadian adjective was there for the main idea of the environnement. The zone doesn't take place in canada or whatever
