Altough I was planning on doing this anyway, requested by damngodsonic and Warhawk717. … Jesus this game is hard. Sorry Jesus, it is! It suffers the same problem that Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic Heroes does – obnoxious level design thats out to get you. In those games, it’s masses of pits and unwieldy collision detection – in this one… it’s… just mean as hell. The bosses aren’t exactly pushovers either, you have a very limited time window to hit most of these. Why did I do the Game Gear version as opposed to the Master System version? I prefer the boss music… that and it makes the bosses harder, unlike Sonic 1. There are three points in this game where you will lose lives like sand falling out of a bag with holes in: Green Hills Act 3 – thanks to many blind jumps via springs. Scrambled Egg Act 2 – because it’s simply out to get you via instant death traps and “oh no I pressed the wrong direction at the wrong milisecond so I died” segments And the Final Boss -I take back what I said about the Sonic 1 8Bit final – this one’s far harder! Fortunately the game is very generous on lives, I got 7 in Green Hills Act 1 alone. Despite the number of lives I lost, I stay above nine because it simply gives you so many lives! Cheers to GHZ for the boss names, and big thanks to purple_manners for the Emerald Locations. Crazy game.
