We've only just covered Sonic Mania Plus, well how about Sonic Mania 2? Well, this could very well be a contender. I loved Sonic Chaos for the Sega Game Gear and Master System. Mainly as, for me, it represented as close to a 16 bit Sonic game as I could hope for, but now, Sonic Chaos as been re-imagined for 2018, and it looks gooooood.

    • Because 90% of the ppl that are going to play this game are the ones that played the Game Gear version. Nostalgia is one of the main reasons that we play these old games. Therefore my question is why WOULDN'T you make the music akin to the original? It makes zero sense not to! It would only add to the enjoyment if they had. It stands as a missed opportunity to touch on some serious nostalgia imo.

    • Skin4thewin Why does everything based on an old game or IP have to have a sentiment of nostalgia about it? Why cant it be its own thing?

      Retro Games Boy 78Retro Games Boy 782 år sedan
    • How do you figure? It doesn't sound anything like the original Sonic Chaos which to me is a real shame. Could have gotten a real nice nostalgic kick if the music had sounded at least similar. I feel like that was a missed opportunity for some nostalgia. It is after all supposed to be a remake or re-imagining of the original game

  • Hey sunshine SONIC CHAOS was never publicly released. And you goddam know it mate lol:) I love your channel and will always watch as you are an enigma of the past:) The choice is clear pay £30 plus or pay nothing for the DEMO and thoroughly enjoy a well-made game, I must admit I never liked sonic and didn`t realise what all the fuss was all about until I played this fantastic game, but this SONIC TOURQOISE HILLS? is a bit of a catch and I for one find myself playing it with my 5year old godson!(THIS IS THE WAY TO GO IN SELLING AND PROMOTING GAMES, BACK TO BASICS IF YOU BELIEVE IN YOUR PRODUCT THEN YOU QUITE RIGHTLY BACK IT!) I believe in the demoware world and if it`s good enough to demo you will buy if you like it:) I must admit this game SONIC CHAOS is worth £2.00 of my money and hope the programmer and studio go from strength to strength and would go as far as to offer investment in their product as I believe the game is fantastic and I wish all of the programming team and tea/coffee makers the best. ps please contact me if you feel investment/capital would help make a difference as I truly belive this project has true portential as you already know:) PPS please contact me as I think this program/game has true potential and I will help as much as possible and I have over 20yrs of experience of the computer games market. Thank you for your review and please, please keep up your video reviews as I find your content and review style most appealing, sir God Bless you and your family matey :)

Also the pose is different but I'm going to chalk that up to you comparing the wrong frames...

  • Would be neat if this got picked up as an official game but I doubt SEGA would ever go for that level design, it's far too complex and gameplay gets broken up too much.

  • I love the SMS versions of Sonic 1&2 as much as the Mega Drive originals, they're great in their own way. I just couldn't get into Sonic Chaos though, something about the gameplay was just so off and too distant from what I loved about the first 2 SMS Sonic games.

  • Looks incredible! However, I do dislike the fact that the music doesn't sound anything like Sonic Chaos. It would have been SUPER nostalgic if they had made the track at least sound somewhat like the original. Shame that they missed the ball on that. It would only stand to increase the enjoyment if they had.

  • I had the Game Gear version of this, I do hope they use the Game Gear versions of the tracks, especially for Aqua Planet Zone. The Game Gear version is in triplets, swing timing in other words, whereas the Master System isn't. ...Come to think of it, they could use the different rhythms for Act 1 and Act 2, and base them off different genres of music.

  • I never got to play this one. By 1993 I'd moved on to a MD but I remember hearing about this game and the collective "FINALLY we get to play as Tails!" from other MS owners who felt jipped by the MS release of Sonic 2 (which was still a damn good game but the MD version was far superior). Hopefully they release this on PC so I finally get to play it!

  • So this is effectively a Sonic Chaos AAA remaster in development. It’s actually a very interesting concept to come up with and work on and it’s already looking sick so far! It shows that there’s also potential of a Sonic Mania 2 happening, which would be really cool, especially with this brand new Crimson engine! 😎

  • i feel like maybe this should not be given to sega, because then a bunch of spineless assholes will start hating on the game and sega for milking a style. and the last thing any of us want to hear is an acne infested kid calling this game a piece of shit simply because mania was enough. the devs were amazing with this one and the musician might as well be Tee Lopes' rival!

  • This probably sounds silly, but I think it'd be nice to have a European 50HZ option in the menu, and have that option in Sonic Mania, playing the original Sonic The Hedgehog on the Master System as a kid, I'm very familiar with it's gameplay and rhythm, I've tried emulating it at 60HZ and it feels so wrong to me. I'd love a remake/remaster of the Master System version of the OG Hedgehog ;D

  • The original wasn't a good game to me anyway. Just like most of the Sonic Gamegear games (except Sonic 1 8bits which was decent). Like to me, in all of the Classic games, only Sonic 2 MD and Sonic 3&K were great, and Sonic 1 16bits and 8bits and Sonic CD were decent to good. And I'm sorry, but I'm against the idea of pixel-art/retro aesthetics, it doesn't keep up the evolution of the gaming industry, it doesn't try to advance it, nor to revolutionize it, to stay in the present. It only wants to dwells in the past, by selling based on the pleasent memories from the old games, somewhat like a safe space. And that's the same thing with Classic Sonic, to me e belongs in the 90's, in the past, and should remain in it. Sure it was cool to see him in Generations, but it was exceptional, it was that one anniversary game (or games since the 3DS version has its own levels). But know with games like Mania and Forces ... I personally don't like that; because to me Classic grew into "Modern" Sonic in the late 90's to adapt with the times. And to me that resurgence of Classic implies that objectively the Classics were perfect and everything after it was trash. I know I'll get a lot of flag for saying this and I'm sorry to come off as rude, but this is just my opinion, and I know yours would be completely different, so whatever. But to me, if you love those games so much ... then replay them (even me Sonic 2 and 3&K are a blast to replay, those games are great !) ! Btw I'm sure you may be one of those people who says "The last good Sonic game before Mania was 3&K (or another Classic title past &K)". Well it's not because they're objectively bad, just that you didn't like them, they didn't interst you (or else why would games like Adventure 1 and 2, Unleashed, Colours and Generations be popular ?) and despite the fact that I come of as rude, I respect your opinion (but that doesn't mean between 1998 and 2017 there hasn't be objectively good Sonic games). So I'm sorry if I come off as rude, I know you'll highly disagree ...

    • > Pixel art stagnates the gaming industry I doubt it. Meanwhile, you have lots of people who do wonders with 3D art, yet still most works come around as bland and lifeless. Take a look at Anthem, for example. Millions of Dollars invested for a mere plagiarism of Warframe.

      Chris FalconChris FalconÅr sedan
    • You seem to think you can only have one or the other, either classic sonic or modern sonic. When actually you can have both, and we do. Some of the 3D games are absolutely brilliant and get undeserved flack from people who've never played them, but I also bought sonic mania and loved that too. And good pixel art never died, in fact it's better than ever, and you saying we should just give up pixels is like saying no artist should use paintbrushes and canvas anymore because they can use a Drawing tablet and create paintings digitally. Pixels are just one artistic tool, polygons are another, and both have their place and many people prefer the look of pixels. Like I play modern games that are beautiful looking like the Far Cry series, but Shovel Knight was also one of the most beautiful looking games I've ever seen. You don't go into an art gallery and only like one wing of the gallery dedicated to one particular art era and gate everything else in the gallery. Or maybe you do, I don't know.

  • Sonic Chaos was brought to my attention recently but I don't own a Master System so I could play it yet, which means this is great news! Even though no Sonic Mania can replace in my heart Sonic CD as the best Sonic game of all time, it is still great and I'd love to see this as its sort of sequel. It already looks better than Sonic 4 (I know, just kicking a dead horse here...)
