    I remember that someone mentioned it briefly before. IIRC it's part of the level, not a boss.

    I hope they put Scratch into the game, since we actually got Grounder as a debug easter egg in the Sonic 2 remake. =P


    By the way, loving that Boss music and the new poster. They really nailed Tails' face in this one! (I mean, it looks a bit off in the "cover" at the Steam page, for example)

    Is that the Oshima artwork they teased about earlier? It looks really similar to his art from that time period.

    I was going to ask this, but... yes!!! I mean, the Drop Dash would make that pointless for Sonic.

    At this point I might still skim this thread, but I'm not going to be watching any more videos or trailers till after release. One thing I do hope is that the competitive multiplayer allows for full game races, either segmented (Like how Sonic 2 scores each act) or in real time, though I'm just wondering if it would be possible to have split screen with each player potentially being in a different level or act.

    Here's some good GH act2 footage. We finally get to hear a clean version of act2's remix which plays nearly all the way through. Also, we see some routes which haven't been shown yet. Makes me appreciate how good the level design is in act2.



    Something unusual is that after a while the player comes up to an unavoidable death-pit against the boss (3:58). The player does takes a long time trying to beat Eggman. I would have thought the level layout would keep repeating itself (looping after a while) until Eggman is defeated. To add an unavoidable death-pit which effectively gives a time-limit to beat the first boss in the game seems harsh!

    Also, this is new Mania art:

    I couldn't clean that up though. The phase between left and right keeps changing and that made it impossible to invert the isolated SFX sounds.

    OMG, I hear "whooo's" and did I hear a "C'mon" or was that my inagination in the boss music. At the same time, WTF is up with that bitchy gap and cheap death at the end of the boss?????? The player wanted us to enjoy the scenery and the music :v:

    Maybe that cheap death was the result of a (hopefully fixed) bug.

    Loving everything I've seen so far, my only question about this boss(well, any results moment really), when boss is finished, and creates the death pit below him, if the player stands right next to this pit, will his victory jump plung him into the abyss? and if so will that count as a death?

    It looks like you're supposed to jump down onto more land after the camera pans, but he kills the boss before the pan.

    OK. why does Sonic uncurl when he hits a spring?

    Also out of all remastered levels CP1 looks like the most tame one. No extra gimmicks, no extra badniks. Just a mix of original act 1 and 2.

    Sonic has always uncurled upon hitting a spring in the originals...I think.

    Anyone else notice how Tails drowned in the rising pit of doom and did a full vertical wrap around still in the death animation? Also never respawned after that.

    Yep, the difference being he always used a static frame, now he uses the SCD animation.

    Also, I'm quite disappointed they didn't make the yellow buildings scroll separately from the red buildings.

    Did you not see the CPZ Act 2 video yet? That act is radically different. Just like GHZ 2.

    Working on my art!
    At 35 seconds, why is Sonic standing on those metal blocks? Aren't those background elements?

    And lol Tails dying. He kept looping vertically through the level.
