Hey folks, quick update: due to work, etc. the release date simply can't be 31st July. :( Sorry to let you down like this, but work's been pretty flat out lately :/

As a side note, the game is near completion - only about 3 levels and a few cutscenes to go and voila!

I'm also considering the creation of a trailer to keep the hype alive. Watch this space. ;)

Hey all, sorry for the lack of activity lately - been busy. ^^;

Anyway, I've decided that before I finish off the game, I'll release one last Pre-Release beta for you all. :D

This beta is a HUGE improvement over Beta 2 and contains new features, improved performance, etc.
And by popular demand, I've released this one in Windowed format. B-)

Here's the full changelog:

Pre Release Beta v3 Changelog:

*By popular demand, Sonic can now finally fight back against enemies! Press the X key
before colliding with a foe to slash right through them and net you some points!

*Boss fights have been redesigned with tactics in mind. Now, rather than just meerely
taking turns to attack your enemy, the enemy is now much stronger and can take you down
in a matter of hits. Don't panic just yet though, 'cause now you have 5 Potions at your
disposal. Use them wisely! By watching your health bar and using a good combonation of
attacks and potions, you can defeat your opponent!

*NEW OPENING MOVIE! (Note: This was designed around the power of a Geforce GTX 480 GPU, and so the timing
to the music may be slightly off on weaker hardware, but still awesome nonetheless.

*Added a cutscene to the beta so players can get a taster of those too!


Please download and enjoy! Just click on "SonicPRB" on the page in the link and away you go!:D

File is in .RAR format, so you'll need a .RAR extraction tool like WinRAR.

Wow, this is very nice. Good job :D

However, there are just a few things that I didn't like:

1. When he jumps, he doesn't go into a spin like in the normal games.

2. When move back and forth while falling, you sortof do a hover.

3. The running is rigid and not as smooth as the original.

But other than that, this is a great game. Don't give up (+1 btw) :wink:

Thanks for the feedback! :D

Regarding Sonics jumping animation, that is a feature I can implement for the final version, it just takes a lot of time to do, and conisdering it's meerly cosmetic, I wasn't going to bother with it. But if any more people do want it, I'll just do it. xD

And yup, that's known as "Moonwalking" - a common enough issue with GE platformer games. I've tried to fix it, and many have tried to help me but it just wont work for me. :C

And the ridgid running is another thing I can't fix - it's due to the gravity code and collision code - If I follow tutorials to make it work like normal, then most of the collisions cause problems with the game. :/

But I apprieciate the feedback! ^^
