Sonic Alpha

Project Overview

sa title screen display.png
A mysterious recurrence happened once again as Angel Island is seen landed in the ocean and to top it off little planet is seen right above it in the sky! What is going on? And what's Eggman / Dr.Robotnik up too? Find out in the next episode of- er, I mean, find out in Sonic Alpha! (Sorry that's the best story I could ever come up with...)

Sonic Alpha is a 2D classic sonic fan game inspired off the time when older 2D sonic fan games were made such as Sonic XG, Sonic Nexus, Sonic Classic, Sonic Axiom, etc; with a Mania inspired touch. It will features returning stages as well as new ones.

The game features 4 playable characters ranging from Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Mighty. Yup you read correctly, Mighty the armadillo. He was originally planned before I even started making the game and has his move set inspired by Sonic Mania of course.

Sonic can control as you normally expect with the addition of the SuperPeelOut and Drop Dash.
Tails can Fly, Knuckles can climb walls and break rocks to reach hidden routes specially for him.
Mighty controls mostly how you'd see in Sonic Mania,
He has the Hammer Drop and can bounce of Spikes.In this demo will be a short playable act of Angelic Angel Island Zone.

Edit: It has been reupdated to fix slowdown issues, and other bugfixes. unfortunately there will be no joypad support as that slows down the game tremendously.
Edit2: repudated again. you can now spindash properly through rocks without stopping any momentum and fixed layer glitch in cutscene.
Edit3: fixed all slowdowns. show be no more now I hope :/

It's really nice see an simle and cool attempt ( a good one) to make something out of some other stuff that'd could be considered oveused. i like how fresh stuff fells in game play, sometimes has soem random issues ( blame the possesed game engine software) wich sometimes interfer in gameplay, just an restart solve those problems.
i like how consistent characters are in level, a good mix that i will be looking forwards for it.;
I'm bad at reviews so here goes...

Controls: It's NSS Sonic Worlds so what more can I say? It controls well.

Level: Pretty nice! I kinda reminded me of the original, but it was quite enjoyable.

Art: Nice! Are Sonic's Sprites from Crackers? They remind me of it. Mighty's sprites looked really good too.

All in all 4/5. Just another pretty good fan game.

Gameplay: Not much to say here other than all of the characters play well and oh hey angel island cool

Graphics: The repurposed graphics are exactly that same as the original. Again, not much to say here except I love the Genesis-esque Mighty sprites holy shit

I like the concept and how things are done. Obviously, arent an Mania 2, but is soo good and enjoyable, and to see the accuracy of level and characters is pretty well done. Soemtimes the game has some random bugs but its due to major and random issues by a cursed game engine.

Unfortunately XD
 
Mostly feels like a minor hack of Angel Island from Sonic 3. I didn't see too much of a change from that and it's very short. Strangely, the menu and the credits makes me feel like this has promise, but there didn't feel like much substance in the actual level. Overall, I think it's fine, but I'd really just want more to play to really see this shaped with new ideas. This starting off on Angel Island and it being called Sonic Alpha, I thought it might be something like a prequel. Like, maybe exploring that past Angel Island from Sonic Adventure or something.
