Dude two words: AMAZING game, i wanted to make a sonic game of my own, and now that the GE 1.5 has rotation and stuff, I can, its so much easier than drawing a full range of rotated animated sprites.
Btw.....AMAZING INTRO

Good start. The intro was actually pretty cool, just the right amount of over the top epicness. It felt like the intro for some action anime.

Gameplay obviously has a good base but the movement in particular needs refinement. Good for beta but Sonic jumping is always very fluid so the airwalk is noticable. I could probably help with the velocity adjustments to create more curved flowing arcs if you want.

BTW, are you gonna have a large playable cast, just a few, or just Sonic? I'd like to see a Sonic 3/Sonic and Knuckles type game with even more characters and ways to explore.

Thanks guys!

@AnarchCasssius: Thanks for the comments, apprieciated! :D Regarding the jumping, yeah movement and physics are the main area I wan't to touch up before releasing any final versions. ^^; If you could make a better jumping motion, I'd apprieciate it big time! I'll PM you a link to a base level and you can take a look. Thanks again!

Also, as for the cast, only Sonic is playable for now, however, you do control Shadow for the occasional boss fight.

Good news everyone, Sonic: Empire of Nightmares is all but finished now - only 3 levels to go! (And some cutscenes of course :P)

Quick Changelog and things:
*New Opening Movie (Shorter, neater, and much more awesome)
*Main Menu Revised
*Re-worded some cutscenes
*Changed difficulty of Boss Levels
*Fixed other minor bugs

Once I have the game finished, I will spend quite some time beta testing and removing any bugs I can find, but even now, the game looks bug-free and mint.

Here's some screenshots to keep you up to date:

Release date is still 31st July!

I hope you'll support and enjoy this, folks. :)
