    I was just going by the ring counter. I'm not intimately familiar with HPZ's layout, but do you not have to jump in the level by that point? I didn't notice the Special Stage stars over the lamp post, though. Guess I got my hopes up a bit.

    Well...that + - Hidden Palace boss   is...something. I'm not completely sure what I'm looking at, or how it relates to the level.

    I do hope that it's a level in normal progression, though playing it to earn Super Sonic is a nice idea. If that's how it's done, I'm guaranteed to never play it because the Special Stages in this game blow, and I've heard Special Stage 7 is the definition of bullshit.

    So how long until that spoiler is incorporated into hacks? :specialed:

    Seriously, this shit is awesome. It's like there's been a progression of improvement from SCD to S1 to this.
     
  5. That Hidden Palace boss is so Phantom of the Opera, Eggman playing his organ manically down in the catacombs...

    I knew they would use 3D special stages!

    Also, Taxman, I see what you did there. Stardust Speedway inspired trumpet AND tubes in that.

    Bloody hell, this is beyond amazing. Taxman, Stealth, I fucking love you guys.

    I currently have no way of playing this game unfortunately, but my phone contract is due for an upgrade at any time now, so presuming I get an Android or iPhone I won't have to wait TOO long for this...

    It's going to be weird having two separate locations in Sonic "lore" called Hidden Palace Zone. At least Death Egg Zone in Sonic & Knuckles was the same space station that crashed into Angel Island after Sonic 2. Then again, Angel Island Zone in Sonic Advance seems to take place on the ruins of Sky Sanctuary yet it still shares the name as the jungle area of the island. Maybe the Hidden Palace Zone in Sonic 2 is just an unexplored area of Angel Island's Hidden Palace and Sonic will somehow take a brief visit there during the course of the game.

    ...or there are just two Hidden Palaces. Really, this isn't confusing.

    I guess it's not unreasonable to assume Westside Island has its own Hidden Palace. The Japanese Sonic 2 manual gave Westside Island its own history with the Chaos Emeralds, so why not.

    Ah, amazing stuff - not only is there a release date, but a reveal of Hidden Palace Zone?! = D + - Complete with an all-new crazy trombonesque boss?  

    Definitely getting this, even if I can only run it on Bluestacks. Hopefully one day SEGA will see fit to release native PC/console ports of these versions of the games! Still hoping for that hypothetical collection release one day in the future. = )

    I guessed this was going to happen, what with the large delays and such. I'm glad to see my guess wasn't incorrect, because this is easily among the greatest days of our lives. I'll be buying a copy and convincing all of my coworkers to as well. Thank you Taxman and Stealth, you guys are incredible and I'm so glad we have you two on the inside now.

    I hope I can download it from my phone this time, I still can't even see Sonic 1 in the Google App Store (can only see CD Lite and 4-2 Lite) EDIT: Oops, I can see Sonic 1 after clicking on the "47 more" button, so that problem was indeed fixed. My bad. =P

    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    Hidden Palace Zone. That's something to look forward to I guess.

    Staying sane.
    I can just see it. The lead brass in that boss theme in conjunction with Robotnik's brass.

    I cannot wait to see what new Easter eggs are included! I can tell that this will be worth the wait! Congrats in advance guys!

    Better to think of it as not a place that's called 'Hidden Palace', but simply a level title that states what it is. ie: A Palace, that happens to be Hidden. Which I think is a fair description for a lot of locations. It doesn't have to necessarily mean it's the same one place.

    I mean, Buckingham Palace could become a 'Hidden Palace' if you hid it well enough. (Don't think about this analogy too long...)
