    This looks great!

    Level design seems to be a lot better than your average Sonic fan game. I like the custom sprites, like Sonic having his hand closed when in max speed (feels more like classic Sonic), bent spin dash and insta-shield from Advance, the signpost a mix of Sonic 1 and 2. The bosses made of multiple pieces is very reminiscent of the 16-bit era in general and look very cool.

    The new levels feel unique even when they repeat pre-existing tropes, like snow stages, and some of them don't seem to fit in old tropes at all. This in particular makes me wish it was an official game. I also like how you mash old gimmicks together to create new gimmicks, instead simply of using old ones with new graphics. This is the right approach, it's familiar and new at the same time.

    The only constructive criticism I can give is that the main menu feels a bit slow and you can't see what the options are without cycling through them (some people might not even notice there are other options, since they're hidden). This seems to be a minor nitpick, but you have to consider that the average player will see that screen a lot and it is the first impression of the game, even before the gameplay itself. So the least friction there, the better. :)

    Why don't you add Sonic the Hedgehog Remake with this game? This is crazy accurate. The new addition to the Special Zones does add challenge. I only hope that "Tails" can accompany Sonic as in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II and Sonic Mania.

    I planned on it. It's been 90 percent done since SC1.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but why is there a Knuckles 1-up at 5:45 in the video while you're playing as Sonic?

    Also yeah, awesome stuff.

    I believe that’s the transformation gimmick - you can transform into versions of Sonic with Knuckles’s abilities for a short period of time by hitting those.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but based on the trailers it's safe to assume the base version is going to have the Sonic 1 / Sonic Classic levels and then as you stated Plus adds on Sonic 2 and Encore, correct?

    Regardless, much like the original, this game is looking fantastic and I can't wait to run through this.

    Is they was any more news, Hez would've been the first to tell us about it. These kinds of posts aren't useful.

    Nothing really significant besides being able to play it through (gamebreaking that is) glitch free. Trying hard to polish and get the special stages functioning properly at the moment.
