    Look at the top banner here. See anything you've seen in certain pics I released at my site not too long ago?

    It's just a coincidence. You try too hard.

    Lots of games have balls with stars on them. It's a trend.

    Huh? Which other games? This is the second time I've seen a ball shaped exactly like that, counting the Sonic 2 sketch...

    I agree, don't stress yourself too hard with these kinds of things. =)

    Yes, the ball with the star on it is so incredibly unique. >_> - once again, you try too hard.

    Looks like they haven't, either, as they aren't able to provide any examples...

    No, I can't right now. But I can assure there are plenty. I just haven't played them in ages.

    It's nothing special ICEknight. That new game looks retarded anyway.

    I wouldn't say ICEknight is looking too hard. If you enlarge the smaller ball pictures, you'll see that the scale is similar, if not exactly the same.

    ICEknight provided something material to support his statement. Now why don't the rest of you do the same?

    Actually, I can see how this works.

    If you combine this: [​IMG] and this: [​IMG], you can feasibly get this: [​IMG]

    It looks similar, well done for spotting it Iceknight. As for if it's inspired by the prototype, who knows?

    Hmmm... I just thought that there might be some kind of bouncing toys shaped like this in Japan or something, so it could be a cultural reference. =|

    Notice how the coloring on that ball uses Blue, white, yellow, and red.

    These colors are all in the S1 pallet line. S2 was built off S1, right? [/long shot]

    Nice find ICEknight. I havent seen those star balls other then sonic 2 concept art and that game, though I think there was another game but I don't remember.

    Everyone loves Sonic 2 Beta. Maybe an employee at Sega found an alpha of S2 and said 'Hey! These cool balls will make a good addition to 0ur gamez!'. And if he did, Rika can start raiding the headquarters. =P

    But either way, nice find ICEKnight.

    I agree with the fact they look the same, but I doubt sega would use the idea for it. They may have been keeping the design from the production of Sonic 2 for a new game so they make us go "Look" But I agree and disagree. Woah did this post count

    Who knows?
    Correct me If I'm wrong, But that Ball is 2x2 Tile Blocks, and In the Sketch are write "4x4 Cells". Where is started that ball is the ball in the Sketch?

    That is a Huge Star Ball, Like the Found by ICEKnight.

    Interesting, I can make badnik ballz to the International Badnik contest?
