    Ah yes, the good ol Russian bootleg.

    Also I just noticed, why does it have both Sonic Mega Collection and Sonic & Knuckles collection? Doesn't the former make the latter kinda redundant?

    New Update. I recorded quickly, and am aware of most of the bugs displayed (but point any you see out anyway just in case). I plan on fixing them before release. Still plan on revamping the save menu and title cards. Basically, in a nutshell, here is what is left;

    • Update Menus
    • Update Character Sprites
    • Finish up polish on bosses
    • Complete end sequence
    • Beta test the hell out of it
    Here is nice to haves, and depending on what people want, will either come as an update or delay the game

    • Extra "encore" like mode being more than just pallete swaps/minor layout changes (Basically full new layouts)
    • Online play finished
    • Sonic 2 fleshed out and playable
    Hope this excites some people! Shooting for a Summer 2020 release.

    Looking great! Only issue standing out to me is the sound effects are much louder than the music, which sounds like it's taking a back seat to the action a bit too much. The ring sound also almost sounds a little like a low quality WAV file that's a bit fuzzy or something?

    Then again I've sort of gotten more sensitive to the ring collect sound as I get older so maybe it's just me.

    So long story short. I absolutely suck at recording. Sound is adjustable in options, and I recorded it in a format that Adobe didn't like so I had to convert it as well, which took a toll on the audio. I regret many things...

    I think it's just good old fashioned audio clipping.

    Even today you do occasionally hear fan games using low quality sound effects that people ripped in the mid-90s, but I don't this is one of them.

    i think the extra features sound come out later after the first release ala sonic mania plus, so basically a sonic classic 2 plus, and that way instead of just new level layouts, you can even do harder/ new bosses to make it even more exciting. I think this is the optimal strategy.

    That's some effort you put into all of this.

    Looking amazing as ever! :thumbsup:

    I really like how you can use old game graphics/objects in a new way, which makes me have to stop for a few moments thinking, "hey, I've seen this somewhere before, right?" Especially Chaotix, I always liked the visual style of that game!

    Any of these would be a great addition to the game, but in my opinion, as an extra/patch for later. From this list, an "encore" mode sounds great and it's what excites me up the most, because it gives you a reason to go through the levels you already know in a new way!

    Will "Tails" be able to accompany Sonic?

    I think I finally decided on something. I'll release 2, potentially 3 versions.

    Sonic Classic 2
    Sonic Classic 2 Plus+
    (Working on a better name now, as I don't want to steal manias)
    Sonic Classic 2 & Fang (Harde har har, a play on S3k obviously. This would just be the above version with an Sonic and Knuckles like addition. Basically the scrapped 3-4 concept levels I had planned and potentially releasing online mode in this version if its not polished enough by the Plus+ release date)

    So basically Plus+ would have Sonic 2 added and a more robust "encore" mode. I'd add 5 more red rings (blue ones?!) per stage to find to unlock these.

    Yes -- potentially more to be unlocked :)

    I did notice that some new music tracks were displayed here - including one for Sonic Classic 1's Dusty Dunes Zone. Are they planned to be released any time soon?

    Okay, that's pretty funny. I can see myself definitely buying it just for shits and giggles.

    If there's a demand for it, I could. I just planned on releasing along with SC2 within the next few months.

    You had good timing. Figured I'd show an update since a lot of overhauls have been done.
