    I don't think people would have given the game any slack even if it were an original game though. The problem everyone had was with the physics. That would still have been a problem with an original Sonic game too.

    Shame he quit, it had potential. I'll still stand by that statement. The graphics were gorgeous though, whoever designed those should go into being an artist for 2D games or whatever.

    Of course nobody would have a problem because nobody would have the set expectations of how a Sonic game should play.

    Yes they would. They expect it to play like the classics in most fangames. Right now in fact, Sonic 4 is being torn apart before it has even come out for not being anything like the classics. People expect Sonic games to play exactly like the original Genesis games, regardless of what they are. This is a complaint in ALL games with Sonic nowadays. If it doesn't feel EXACTLY like the originals, they give it hate out the wazoo.

    I'm referring to a completely original game, not a game based on an existing property.

    "Original Game" never refers to a fan game.

    Ah I see, thought you meant an original sonic fan game. My bad. Yeah, he should have started with something simpler indeed.

    Sorry, I'll reference the other fan game that has a recreation of sonic 1 in it.
    Some stuff in sonic 1 is just real tough to recreate. A fresh game would probably have been a good start.
     
  7. I've been meaning to ask, I can't get to Scrap Brain cause the cutscene after Starlight resets the game...
    What's the password to unlock everything?


    I agree the games very buggy. But I do like the artstyle, even if it's just the background!

    I might not be playing the most recent version...

    There was an update just now, so he's still alive and developing it. I'm not sure if I should post the direct download link here, but here's his post-

    His rapidshare link has a limit though, but someone reupped it on mediafire, if I'm allowed to post that here (I hope)-

    I tried it, it certainly seems much better in terms of gameplay. His cutscenes still suck ass, but the game plays better. I wish people would take up the style seen in S3K and have the characters mime everything. For example, have the first cutscene of Sonic just laying around GHZ and Robotnik catch some of his animal friends right in front of him while laughing. Sonic gets angry and shakes his fist or whatever, Robotnik laughs and leaves, Sonic runs after him. No text, no talk, pure miming. Works awesomely with Sonic too, as we've seen in Sonic 3 and Knuckles.

    Anyways, now there's new life here IMO. Still needs some work of course, not everything is perfect. But the guy is trying. And this is a beta and he's taking suggestions. :)
     
  9. I hope one of those suggestions was to never try making new MP3 music again.

    I wouldn't say "never", they just need to find a better person to do it.
