    Oh? The only change that was made to the Special Stages was to make it rotate smoothly, unless there was some exploit you could do in the original?

    Playing it now. It's wonderful. The sound quality is sublime! Well done guys, now get this on PS3 and Steam so you can take even more of my money.

    Anyone who's interested: underneath GHZs moving platforms are still bottomless pits.

    Also the revised spike behaviour is in.

    You can no longer attack the GHZ boss before the ball comes down.

    The timer keeps going until you destroy the capsule, like in the original.

    Great job Taxman and Stealth! This is amazing! :thumbsup:

    It will take some getting used to the smooth rotation of the special stages. Also, as bug reports are probably appreciated, for some reason the boss music didn't play for me in Marble Zone until the point where I had defeated Robotnik and it was meant to fade out. (silence during the battle besides sound effects) At the end of the battle it started, just to fade out immediately, and returned to the Marble Zone music.

    I strongly resisted the urge to quote GeneHF's "Just trust me on this one" quote chain, mainly for the fact that I'm really not cool or hilarious.

    EDIT: It was soooooooo 30 pages ago anyway....

    It's probably more that I'm not really used to it rotating so smoothly. :v:

    Also, THE REAL REASON WHY WE ALL WANTED YOU TO BUY THIS REVEALED:

    App Store link with screenshots, for those who want to see the screenshots for some reason: (Since nobody's provided it yet)

    If nobody's recorded a video by this time tomorrow, I can do it. I have the necessary tools to direct capture. Just waiting for the US App store to become tomorrow.

    What? Don't be silly.
    It says seven zones on the current release on the iOS, so its probably counting Final Zone.

    That's counting Final Zone, no new levels for Sonic 1 sorry! There are some other easter eggs though but I'm not going to give them away for the moment :ssh:

    If it's based on the Time Attack zone list, Zone 7 = Final Zone, so.. yeah. Nothing new there. :P

    Let's see some changes listed..
    * Menu system is amazingly awesome, and I have a soft spot for the Sega Vintage Collection intro ditty.
    * Tails and Knuckles unlockables? Yum.
    * Music using original synths is noticeable.. unsure if I like or dislike, honestly. No opinion. Benefit of this (and sequenced) is speed-up on speed shoes just fine.
    * Springs are SCD-styled, which I don't mind at all.
    * Rings and Giant Rings are 8-framed.
    * Special Stages are much, much harder with smooth rotation, but amazing all the same. Very nicely done.
    * GHZ Boss has wide-screen changes, the previously seen in video ball rotation (it looks even better in actual motion on device).
    * GHZ Boss also can't be hit until the ball comes down. (This will annoy a few people!)
    * Yours truly in the Special Thanks. :U (Unexpected but lovely surprise; I can die happy now I'm in the credits of a Sonic game. :U)

    I haven't completed beyond GHZ yet, as I need to sleep, but I'm sure someone else will post more things. :P

    I have found the best new feature in the game: the ability to restart special stages. :v:
