Naka (based on what little he publically said) didn't seem to have any issue with the fact that Sonic was being controlled by a human, and I would think that if that demo was self-running, he'd probably have remembered that and mentioned it. Not rock-solid proof, but fairly logical conjecture.
Also he didn't seem to have any issue with the amount of parallax, and while it's true he may have forgotten how to program the console by now, I really doubt he forgot the main hardware limitations since he worked with it for so long. If anything was off in that respect he'd have mentioned it.

Forgive me if it's been posted already, but this magazine article has some stuff on Sparkling Zone. Isn't it theorized that Sparkling Zone became Spring Yard Zone? Because this magazine mentions the two as totally different levels. Maybe they shared assets during development?

Also, some pics of the CES beta (probably been discovered already):

It looks like Labyrinth Zone had a different background, with water spurting into the level through cracks in the wall. Also, I don't remember any "down" bumpers in the special stage (then again, I haven't played Sonic 1 in a while).

I'm surprised that nobody's had a go at this yet, so here they go:

Now all we need is for someone to put that in a rom hack and we're all set.

I call inept magazine editors. Those two pics are from different builds (RING vs RINGS).

I can't see that the thing had attached arms- although it's hard to say due to the contrast in the screens if this was lost due to the arms having a shadow which got lost in the back drop. I can see that it looks like the gloves may have been like Rayman's hands, but I could be wrong.

Quoted out of interest. It seems they did.

I'll say it again since noone read it. Spring Yard is Sparkling. Look at the HUDs.

Just going to point out that they are from 2 different builds, seeing as the sparkling picture says 'RING' while the spring yard photo says 'RINGS'

As if it wasn't already obvious (and stated as such).

But yeah, the magazine was wrong to address Sparkling Zone and Spring Yard zone as different levels.

I do wonder if they were going for a more difficult level originally though. Seeing as they did remove that spikeball chain in the final.

Looks like they mixed up Sparkling Zone and Star Light. Note how the levels are already in the final order, if the numbers are anything to go by.

(as posted earlier) have we ever seen a screenshot of the ball in action? This is the first time I've seen it personally, interesting.

I've never seen a few of these pictures before... like Labyrinth, Spring Yard and Clock (W)ork having different backgrounds. And even though its confirmed that Star Light was originally called Sparkling, Spring Yard had a lot more "sparkling" in its original background, if you know what I mean.

Man, seeing stuff like the UFOs in Marble... some of these images blew my mind.

I hope someday someone comes across the S1 Beta... or that the douche who keeps it for collection purposes finally lets someone dump the game. :/

What the hell, no. Sparkling zone was the original name of Spring Yard zone. What I had meant before is that whoever made that article mixed up Star Light zone with Sparkling zone.

I think Sega should have the graphics and sprites of "1990 Tech Demo Prototype" saved somewhere ...
