Never liked that pseudo 3D look they chose for Sonic in S3K. The alpha used modified Sonic 2 sprites and it looked a lot better IMO.

Thankfully, nowadays there's a highly customizable version of Sonic 3 and you can choose to play with both S1 and S2 sprites.

Good man. These are the true versions for me. As far as I am concerned the real series is Master System Sonic, Master System Sonic 2, then the advance series.
Fuck you if you don't agree and/or if you think that other sonic games or the people who like them are in any way redeemable.

Holy shit I am so mad. The level of incompetence in the design teams of sonic games is simply staggering. How is it so difficult to make a Sonic game yet they fuck it up month after month. Major problems include inconsistency of the sprites, shitty recycled stories, and displaced focus from the best characters.

Once, I had a friend who said Sonic and knuckles was the best game of the series so on the day we were moving away I went over to say goodbye but secretly scratched a nail file over the contacts of his S&K cart while he was in the other room getting my going away present.

I thought it was just hue-shifting. Hue-shifting in shading (shadows having slightly different hue than lit area) is a thing in modern pixel-art, but wasn't that much of a thing in 16-bit era.
So Sonic is teal when in light, and blue in shadow - it looks better, and has better contrast, and makes him stand out from environments more.
Also a lot of environments and enemies are red, and red and teal are opposite on the color wheel.

Sonic 6 wasn't bad because of the design. It was limited by the hardware of the consoles at the time which were not powerful enough to handle what Sonic team were trying to do. If the technology was better you would be hailing Sonic 06 as a major milestone in Sonic games and maybe even the first true 3D platformer.
Sadly it was not to be, but you can't blame them for trying, even if it did result in a terrible game.

>implying "hold right to win" doesn't describe most 2D platformers

I gotta agree, after taking a look at it. Is it a step in the right direction? Certainly. Should there be some sort of 100% original followup in the same style? Undoubtedly.

I disagree. It needs more original content and the levels need to be more arcade oriented, shorter and more action packed while still allowing room to explore. It used S3&K level design, but made it even more cramped together.

The level design overall has less shit going on in it than S3&K, and I honestly think that's a good thing. Marble Garden is too fucking big and puzzle oriented.

Not the other Anon, and I haven't played Forces, but let's look at things like this, because the tone of your post is pretty sarcastic.

Sonic Mania is the nostalgia trip no one asked for. It's easy to see and if it hasn't been for you and some others, I'll lay it out now.
>Rehashing stages from previous sonic games
>Re-using gimmicks from previous sonic games (Sonic CD mini-sprites)
For the first one, Generations and Sonic 4 re-used maps from the original Sonic titles. This is okay, except for the fact that we've all already played those stages. Green Hill is tired and deserves to rest. Sonic Mania had quite a few maps from various original Sonic titles, however, it expanded on the already known version of the map and added some new paths. This is okay and all, I guess it leaves some familiarity, but it really doesn't change the fact that it's still a shameful rip of already well known maps.
As for re-using gimmicks like the Sonic CD Mini-Sprites, it's pretty obvious why that was done. Tons of people talk about how great Sonic CD was. This is fine as well, except for the fact that Sonic CD has been made available to everyone through multiple platforms. Steam is one of them. You can purchase the Sega Classic collection for a decent price and play Sonic CD on your PC, you can even go with original hardware, as expensive as this is, and enjoy it that way. I've seen people emulate it on their phones, etc etc etc. It's not a new thing. Now, they did use this in other instances and it was cool in Sonic Mania, but it's still very evident that the option was picked only because of massive nostalgia.

It's a Rom-Hack anon. It's a Rom-Hack by a fan who added in some new content and with not a lot of new content, people still consider it a completely different game.

>Retro Engine
Doesn't matter what it was done in, that changes nothing. As long as the game works, it's a game. Could have been done in UE4, Havoc, Build, whatever, it doesn't matter. As long as it still worked when I want to play it, the engine doesn't matter in terms of its originality. The engine is just the basis for what can and cannot be built. This has no baring on them remaking the original levels. No point in bringing this up.
>Mobile ports of CD/S1/S2
Again, what does this have to do with anything? I already addressed that the original levels are done to death
>Original PC port of Sonic CD, etc/ Shilling the horrid emulator sold on Steam
I wasn't shilling the steam version. I was talking about how easy it was get and play, which you've shown there are more ways to play it than I mentioned, hence why I don't care for the gameplay gimmick being reused in yet another Sonic RomHack, otherwise known as Sonic Mania.

On the same note, there was also some original content in Sonic Mania. But having a heavy amount of old content in it is what makes me call it a RomHack. Unless its all new stages, even with only the standalone genesis title's game mechanics, S1/S2/S3/S&K, it's still just another Romhack. I could see a few nods towards the old stages here and there, subtle things. But straight out copying the levels and then just adding some more paths? That's not a quick nod towards the classic series. We call that an Extended version or and expansion pack.

Not defending Izuka, but wasn't Naka a huge asshole who basically stopped Sonic X-treme because he didn't want baka gajins using his engine?

Sonic X-treme got cancelled because it was shit. The prototypes have been leaked, see for yourself.

Everyone is flawed and nobody is a saint. Naka has a fucking huge ego. But I'll still take him over ol' gooklum there.

Bullshit. X-treme could well have saved the series from its ultimate fate. It would have been ahead of its time. It may have been the inspiration for Mario Galaxy and as shit as that turned out it doesn't mean that it would have been that way for Sonic.

Naka had fuck all to do with designing the game though. He was the code monkey. And you can tell how well he did his job from the fact that Sonic games were always infamous for their collision bugs, as well as some other game breaking issues.

Plus Naka had an over inflated ego. Even in 1991 he thought of himself as the second Yu Suzuki. There was the development fiasco for Sonic 2 which caused the game to be developed in the USA, there's the X-treme thing, and so on. And he was busy building his Ferrari collection while not producing a good Sonic game since the 16bit times.

yeah, Naka can get fucked.

X-treme was a collection of tech demos to build a game out of, basically a bunch of attempts to feel out the hardware using Sonic as a placeholder graphic.

Saturn had no Sonic game, so suddenly this project got bumped up and the guys were told to make a game. They had no precise design document, no idea on how to make the game playable, they just had a bunch of "this could work pretty cool" concepts.

It got cancelled because of internal mismanagement, because it was never on track as a project at all, and because everyone expected it to deliver a 60fps 3d game like Sonic Adventure, when the hardware was extremely ill suited for that. They asked the team to start from scratch and throw out months of engine works multiple times.

The team was still working on an engine, and still had no game design document up until the last second when the lead coder got pneumonia from overworking himself. At that point they cancelled it and moved on to porting Sonic 3D, so the console can get a sonic title for 1996 xmas.

It would've been impossible for X-treme to became a good game because they never even knew what kind of game it would need to be, beyond "a 3d sonic game".

How Iizuka held onto his series director job after Sonic 06 is completely baffling. How he still holds it after every one of his 'big ideas' to get a new audience into Sonic falls flat on its face is similarly odd. If Forces is the trainwreck it looks to be I would hope that would do it, but who fucking knows?

zones themed after modern Sonic games but with pixelated Mania flavour, and a playable classic Amy with her Sonic Advance moveset, like what E-122 did with romhacking.
