    Or how about, they are so particular that they won't let them change boss style slightly, and yet they pretty much destroy their whole franchise direction with Sonic Lost World!!! Hah!

    Finally completed the game as Sonic. It's been so long since I last played, I forgot how much the special stages make me want to murder people, but I did get all the emeralds in the end. It was a lot easier once I synced my dual shock 3 pad. The stages are much more enjoyable with the new smooth 3D rendering, that's one of my favorite new features.

    I was a little surprised water distortion effects weren't added to CPZ or ARZ. The effect used in HPZ looks quite nice, and it's a shame that's the only level that has it. Not a serious issue though.

    Yeah sorry bro, didn't mean to confuse you I just meant if Wood Zone was ever considered at 1 point.

    Heheh, Clever. how was that pulled off?

    Think we can see a mock-up of what it would have looked like?!

    Damnit Sonic Team, that sounded like a great idea.

    I DONE MAKED GAMES.
    Fixed.

    Of course, I think it's a case of baby steps. HPZ was probably allowed due to a lot of the content already being finished by the original team. As I've said before, it could be a case of slowly drip-feeding the new content until Stealth/Tax are trusted (after a sterling track record -- we've got three out of three hits and no misses right now) with a game of the stuff.

    Maybe. I could be talking out of a sphincter or two. I'm not holding out for that "Sonic 4 as Sonic Retro truly imagined it" either.

    I'm one for not changing the originals too much from what they were, it's a shame to not have a unique looking test lab style boss rush but at the same time I prefer all the original boss locations, it's part of what made sonic 2.

    The new 3D special stages kind of needed updating since the extremely low graphics in the original don't hold up too well.

    Including S3 monitors and such is also a great extra, plays along with lock-on tech in a way.
     
  6. Just bought the new Sonic 2 after hearing that they finally resurrected Hidden Palace zone. I saw a video of it and it looks great but I'm a bit disappointed it doesn't use its unused theme (It just uses the 2 Player Mystic Cave theme. I preferred the unused song, personally, it gave HPZ its own identity.)

    On the other hand all the buffs this remastering got my god are they fantastic. I honestly think that if you guys did the same to Sonic 3K then it would blow the effing roof off.

    Also Sonic 1 now runs on my smartphone and is equally as beautiful. I'm really proud of the job you guys did, well done. Seriously. I can't wait to see what you do to Sonic 3K.

    also hurry up and port this to fm towns marty

    For real. We all want console ports and we all know we want console ports. As an aside I am currently contemplating an iPhone for real this time to play these. (in addition to needing a phone) booyeah

    haha I love you for this

    I had no idea what you guys were talking about so I had to retro wiki it, and it turns out this Robotnik's Revenge was made before I ever got here. never connected it but yeah the idea sounds the same.

    What? Don't be silly.
    So I noticed that in Boss Attack restarting on any boss after the first boss tosses you at the beginning of that boss instead of the very beginning of the level again, with whatever you had when you entered that segment (Rings, shield, time) reset (Like if I have 14 rings and a shield on Casino night at 2:00 and get hit twice, getting 2 rings back and beating the boss at 3:44, restarting will restore them back to having a shield, 14 rings, and 2:00 on the timer.). On the downside the music goes away until you hit Death Egg Robot as he has a different song, (In which case resetting there will restore the music when you reach silver sonic.)

    Was this an intentional thing done to make the boss attack easier or a bug?

    Why see a mock-up, when the real thing exists?

    God damn it seeing this and knowing it's not playable in the game makes me want to cry.

    I'm getting a Sonic Crackers vibe from it. The street cone only adds to it.

    With what's been said, people who wanted it ported should start bothering SEGA about it rather than bringing up in the topic constantly. Anyway, I'm good for now since my computer runs it on BlueStacks just fine (it damn well should, it's high end). Also, it sucks we didn't get to see that Egg Gauntlet zone come to fruition in boss rush. What are you gonna do, though? It's surprising SEGA even allowed Hidden Palace zone!

    Fucking hell Sonic Crackers stuff. That's crazy. Why must Sonic Team forbid these cool things (First the 2 levels in CD and now this. Least we got Hidden Palace but man).

    Sorry if I look n00bish but...where is that hacking forum you always talk about? I looked at the engineering and reverse engineering forum for your original finding post, and didn't find anything about this at all...it is a secret forum only to oldbies or tech members?

    No, I was referring to Engineering & Reverse Engineering.

    Full level map was posted there, cross posted here since I'm replying:

    The only thing I'm not a fan of in Egg Gauntlet is all the nature stuff. I can understand it's there to represent the level themes, it's just that it clashes with all the industrial stuff. Personally I think it would be better if the theme of the level didn't bring over any assets from other stages and had it's own version of grass and palm trees.
