After playing through the game several times, and getting used to everything, I just have a few critiques.
The first would be to add in Metal Sonic at the end of White Blaster, if it isn't already in the plans. It just seems incomplete or something without him.
He's already there. I think I released a screenshot or two a while back. He was always supposed to have been there, he just wasn't coded at the time of release.
The second, maybe something I'm doing wrong, would be a way to damage Metal Knuckles (or even to be able to dodge his homing balls of death) without losing rings. I can't seem to find any way to do it currently, however I've worked out a mostly consistent method using the temporary invulnerability to spin-dash him while maintaining enough rings to avoid death.
Now let's see. I think in the old build, it's rather simple to do a no damage run on MK (right now it's pathetically easy due to some placeholder programming). I'd have to play it again to see though. Sonia's moveset is completely different now and currently Silver has a ridiculous huge advantage against him that I should probably do something about.
In short, I'll look into it.
The third request would be to release a version that doesn't lock up on the hardware, regardless of whatever other progress has been done. The currently released version (0.5) will randomly lock up when going to the special stage, and has also done it consistently on Chaotic Street whenever I try to play on my Genesis
. Of course, all is fine on an emulator. I think I remember you saying something earlier about the subsequent builds being perfectly stable...
Otherwise, awesome hack! I look forward to the new stuff being added in.
Last I checked, the last version worked on hardware just fine. This is the first I've heard of it locking up at all, never mind those places. I can't do a new release right now though. Not only is there too much different, but a recent internal change broke three of the levels.
HOWEVER, as far as releases go, there will be one for the hacking contest. How far it is, well, we'll just have to see.
