    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    This would be a smart move, after they didn't update Sonic CD except on mobile. Still, I will be immensely disappointed if this doesn't end up on Steam, since that's my gaming platform of choice pretty much all the time.

    I was thinking/hoping they might be waiting to do another Sonic Jam style collection, since it's extremely unlikely that they'd do a free update to the existing emulated games on consoles like they're doing for mobile. I know collections are unpopular, but considering the developers behind it, there is so much extra content they could offer to make it worth buying. They could do another documentary on the development of the games like they did for the heritage collection games, and maybe touch on stuff we want to know more about like the stuff that never made it.

    The boss was reprogrammed for wide screen and it functions pretty sweetly. Awesome.

    Only Starlight Zone is gonna be problematic.

    If older iOS devices aren't being supported, does this mean we can get real underwater palettes this time? :v

    Sorta. I imagine the changes to make it work are pretty minimal -- you could just add a couple extra see-saws and it wouldn't change much about how the boss plays, though I guess that might make it just sliiiightly easier.

    Or just... center them on the screen.

    It's really not as big of a deal as you guys are making it out to be. Star light was completely fine (albeit it made it a bit easier being able to avoid the boss on the left and right sides, which makes me want to add barriers.).

    Here's some examples of how I dealt with it, which I'm assuming this will use near identical methods.

    Not a huge deal. Sonic 2 will be even easier I'm assuming.

    Even that is probably unnecessary; going by GHZ's view, SYZ will just have more blocks, and SLZ will just spread out the seesaws a bit more. FZ's boss already scrolls, so that won't be too difficult to solve in and of itself anyway. In terms of Sonic 2; EHZ scrolls, CPZ will probably just be widened a bit (the rotating platforms will be increased, possibly, to keep difficulty), ARZ could be widened in distance to prevent the easy jump across.. etc. etc.

    Let's wait and see how they deal with it.

    Something I'd really, really like to see addressed when Sonic 2 comes, is to finish Wing Fortress according to the original design documents, since some parts of the level were obviously just plain unfinished and quickly patched right before release.

    I'd love to see Sonic 2 finished. And by "finished", I just mean put Hidden Palace Zone back in there. It would require another boss, but that seems like something that could be managed.

    I'm guessing something involving usage of the previously unused items that can be accessed in debug mode.

    And that treadmill mechanism that moves but doesn't affect your character- that's an obvious bug right there.

    The second most glaring issue is the end of level Super Sonic glitch, which I'm sure will be patched too.

    Or the 3 ring item boxes that are stacked in mid-air that are really out of place. :eng101:

    Or the QUIT YER YAPPIN' ABOUT THINGS YOU WANT FIXED. :argh:
    But really, get the invincibility stars to work on Super Sonic. Shouldn't screw up the game as horribly as it did on the Genesis during Hill Top now. :specialed:
    No but seriously, ease up guys. 1's barely out and 2's already getting all the requests. It's nice to be excited, but don't flood up the thread with "TAXMAN, FIX THIS AND I'LL TOTALLY SEND YOU VEGEMITE!"

    Does the game still support using the back button as jump?

    I ought to do a price check on something like this...

    Anyhoo, I'm psyched to see the little surprises that you two have in store for us. ^_^ I'm particularly curious about Sonic 2 since it gives me the nostalgia goosebumps to this day.

    It's not. It's expected some time this month.
