  1. I came across this very old yet very strange Sonic fan-made game that was created in 1995 (if that is true). The person who posted the video claims that it's "One of, if not the first sonic fan game on the net". On his account, he has a couple of old Sonic fan made games which I thought were fun to laugh at. :v:

    and

    O.o

    Also, there's also a Sonic Retro Wiki page about this : <a href="http://info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_Boom_%28fan_game%29" target="_blank">http://info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_Boom_%28fan_game%29</a>

    And yeah, it does look pretty funny XP

    It's funny that you pointed that out because I had the exact reaction. X)

    I wasn't aware that this was posted on their wiki page but thanks for informing me!

    I made a stupid 'remix' version of this game years ago, if anyone wants it. XD

    I never played this fangame despite the fact that I used to play the very old ones. My favourite fangame was The Search for Knuckles.

    There is this old DOS Sonic fangame I played once. I think it was called "Spinball" (no relation to Sonic Spinball, or even pinball), although I may be wrong. In it you ran around various what I think were dungeons. Does anybody here know what it is? It's really been bothering me.

    Fuck, you got there first =P

    Dare I say, at the risk of being flamed, the gameplay quality seems on par with Sonic Team's recent works =P

    OH

    My

    God!

    I REMEMBER THAT GAME. It was The Search for Knuckles, but it was like a Star Trek Rip-off and a Spock sprite would come up saying "Live long, and Prosper!" The name In the title crossed out "For Spock" LOL.

    The actual game was sort of one level, but the Act ended early due to its incompletion. But it was on purpose, and then a dog came up and barked. Sonic said "What that? You think Knuckles is in the well?" And he goes over and jumps into a well.

    In that well were signs saying "Mecha Knuckles this way" and "Go this way" and Sonic says "I think I'm supposed to go this way."

    Then a short cutscene between Sonic and Mecha Knuckles happens. They don't talk at all and just stare at each other. Then the battle starts.

    Cue S&K Miniboss music.

    ...But it isn't a battle at ALL! Mecha Knuckles hovers around Sonic's location, covering him up!. It says "You can't beat Mecha Knuckles. Press W to proceed." (Or some other key, It's been too long)

    After that, The Death Egg literally crashes into the Floating Island, and the Island flips on its side.

    Knuckles and Sonic run to the top-left corner of the Island to stay above water.

    Then Sonic and Knuckles have a short conversation, but the part of it I fondly remember is this:

    Imagine this scene with the Titanic Music.

    Knuckles: "...Sonic?"
    Sonic: "Yeah?"
    Knuckles: "This is the place where we first met."

    The Island begins to shake violently, as it is getting ready to fully submerge.

    We see the Island from afar, and Tails from out of nowhere grabs Sonic and Knuckles with the Tornado, and the Island totally sinks.

    Cue S&K ending music.

    Sonic: "Thank's Tails! I owe you one!"
    Knuckles: "Yeah, we were almost fish food."
    Tails: "Um...Sonic?"
    Sonic: "Yeah Tails?"
    Tails: "We're out of gas."

    Th Tornado cuts, they all look at the screen with sad faces. The Tornado falls with them on it, their eyes hang in the air for a moment, then fall with it.

    CUE CREDITS.

    At the end, Spock is at the black screen and says "Live Long and Prosper!"

    ...Don't ask me how I remember that game so well.

    That DOOM modification is "Sonic DOOM II: Bots on Mobius" and was the project A.J. Freda (aka SSNTails) was involved with prior to the Sonic Team Jr. stuff. I actually designed a couple of the levels in SD2BOM. If it's still up somewhere, take a look at Carnival Night, Ice Cap, and Oil Ocean (though I don't remember if I ever finished OOZ or not.)

    And regarding Sonic Boom, yeah it was certainly the first fan game. There were no fan games of Sonic before it or for a while after it. Classic game, I remember it well!



    EDIT: Yeah, here's Ice Cap -- <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKe8KZM-GIc" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKe8KZM-GIc</a>

    Another person who has played Spinball!? I am probably the only person other than you who remembers it.
    Yeah, you ran around in dungeons and stuff, and got rings, and jumped platforms. It wasn't very Sonicy, and it didn't have any sound apart from the old PC speaker, but it was a good challenge and fun to play. There was the Metal Sonic boss that had a really simple pattern but tended to be hard to kill (and I remember dying a lot, where blood would splatter around a little and the screen faded out) I remember that it wasn't actually finished, like after the dungeons it had a single water level and that was it.

    I probably still have it backed up if you are looking for it.

    Speaking of old fangames (Sonic Boom and The Search for Knuckles IIRC can be found on the hall of mis fame section of the SFGHQ), anybody remember/have Knux CD?
