So I got myself the mobile version of Sonic CD asking myself why I don't play this game as much the other classic ones. It's not a bad game by any means, but something just doesn't catch me. The first time I played it was back in 2010 more or less. It was the Sega CD version. I played through it, got the bad ending. Second time was in the beginning of last year (2018), same Sega CD version. This time I got the good ending through the Time Stones. Third time was today (March 12, 2019). I did a casual run of the game, so I got the bad ending again. That's not to say I've only played the game three times. I have booted up the game several times, played through the first two or three zones and then stopped. The main reason I played through it again though, was to give myself a concrete answer. However, I did not come up with one, at lest not a solid one since I have mixed feeling for this game. I don't hate this game at all, but I don't love it as much as Sonic 1 to 3 & Knuckles. I love the music, the Special Stages are awesome, the art style is amazing and colorful (with the exception of the bad futures which are dark, but still really good and pleasing to the eye), and the game casually isn't hard. So what keeps me from playing through the game entirely as much as I do the others? Well, it's the stages. The stages (with the exception of Palmtree Panic, Tidal Tempest, Stardust Speedway, and a few sprinkled acts of others) feel like mazes. They are not hard, but they are slow. A lot of the time that I would speed up, I would immediately hit a wall and lose all that speed. The times where I did see it and avoided it, there was always another obstacle just waiting to stop me. Also, what's up with those rings inside walls? Are they only accessible in different time periods of the act or what? Anyway, back to the stages. I like Palmtree Panic, its easy. Tidal Tempest has little to no obstacles to stop you, and while you are slow underwater, these parts are not "mazy" or overly “platformy” like Labyrinth Zone in Sonic 1. If all the previous zones were speedy, this would be a nice change of pace. That said, since I feel the stages are slow, this one is, well, also slow, but enjoyably slow, not annoyingly slow like some of the others. Stardust Speedway, is sort of like a maze (maybe it totally is), but it is very speedy, it lives up to its name. However, even though I don't like a lot of the stages, as a whole, I like this game. Especially the newer ports of the games that have the Genesis Spin Dash. So, I'm curious as to what you guys feel about Sonic CD. Do some of you feel like I do about it, or do you disagree with what I stated entirely? Any suggestions for rom hacks of this game are welcomed.
