So far, I think this is brilliant. Sure, the Alpha isn't perfect, but from what I can tell it succeeds at taking Sonic 2 and making it 'HD'. There could be some additional animations / details I'd like to see added (maybe animate the flowers in the background of EHZ for example) but that is me being a real nitpick. As long as the physics are made a little better and the quality we have seen so far remains throughout, I can see this being a fantastic game. I can't wait to see how zones like Mystic Cave and Metropolis look. Oh and by the way, Avast doesn't seem to see this as a virus for me, which is a plus. I'll not comment much on all this business with LOst, other than say that having DRM in a fan game is hilarious. The concept of DRM in commercial games is ridiculous enough as it is. Also, what's up with the shortened boss music? It's really noticeable.
