Sonic: Dream Plant (SAGE 2018 Demo)

Project Overview


I bet you all needed another 2D Sonic fan game, am I right? cough I bet not but here we go anyway
The main idea of Sonic Dream Plant is to have my own take on a 2D Classic Sonic experience. To this end, the first zone is not a Green Hill clone, Score actually serves a purpose, and there's an entirely new method of entering special stages. I also focused particularly on the level design with this project to help make it stand out.

Latest reviews

This game has a very interesting stage, with dreamy shades of pink and purple and cyan butterflies that give you rings. It does have a Sonic 1 style that keeps all 3 acts more or less samey without presenting many new gimmicks or difficult challenges, which I think could be improved on, but nonetheless it's consistent with itself and it's fun to play. It does have a road theme to it, so it looks rather empty, and I personally would have looked for a solution to that.
The bosses were alright and kept it clear when and where they were going to attack, however Act 3's boss is rather easy if you have a shield because his projectile can just be avoided.
Now for problems that likely aren't the author's fault, Knuckles's wall climbing is a bit weird and specially his getting up action/animation at the end of the ledge. He also can't consistently break monitors while gliding, I was only able to do that when itwas against a wall. The shield icons also don't make it clear what they're gonna be.

like the colors the level has, feels like an early 90s game.

Might i ask why my Windows 10 Game DVR will not recognize this software at all? I can use it fine to record any other fangame but this one. Although, this problem persists not only on this fangame, but any others that use Gmate. Any idea why?
 
I think I can't do a review without being too harsh on it as I think it's pretty mediocre and is just an bit lazy. The music is ok and the exit screen is neat but that's about it. Please rework this level into something better!

I really tried to do my best on this level so unless you tell me what's wrong with it I won't really be able to fix it.

I feel the background could have been more interesting and the level design could have been more challenging.
