this game is AMAZING. I had so much fun playing so far. The level design is new and fresh and the animations are so cool. One thing I really loved about srb2 was the music and I can say that you have hit the nail on the head with that. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this game.
Honestly, I don't CARE that I haven't played it yet, IT'S HECKING SRB1 BABYYYY! I played it in SRB2 (v2.1) then got v2.2 and saw it was gone, and missed it. 404, time later not found, and it's back, and looking GLOOOORIIIIOUS!
Best part is... they kept Earless (named after the Character Wad), the original sprite used in it, in the thumbnail!
I'm sorry I am just gushing over it, I will now play it.
This is looking like it will be a great remake! Outstanding graphics, physics closely resembling the classics, shields and a moveset from SRB2, great remixed music that both references SRB2 and sounds faithful to both the original and the Genesis Sonic games. Can't wait to see more!
