I've seen on youtube "Sonic The Hedgehog 2D" and "Sonic Fan Remix" and how great they are going. And so I thought to myself...
A few years ago I tried to incite an intent on revamping the classic saga into a single game full of the best of Sonic 1/CD/2/3K, giving it a storyline that could make a connection with SA1&2, like Eggman refering his grandfather and Project Shadow and also finding the Mystic Forest's Ruins at the end of the story...
Characters like Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Eggman, Metal Sonic, Metal Knuckles, EggRobo, etc... all of them in a single story mostly around Death Egg and Angel Island's Arcs, putting Green Hill as the first level as an homage, and Doomsday as the great final battle. Only with Super Sonic...
The system could be the one similar to STH2D, as Sonic 4's may seem a bit tough to use for now xD, it could have cutscenes like the ones in "Sonic Rebirth", and so on...
For storyline and level listing I had this:
The story would be divided in 2 episodes, on the good likes of Sonic4:
- Drill Core
(A huge drill with defense systems located in a place akin to Scrap Brain)
(Nighttime city level on the likes of city escape and radical highway, located in Central City; Amy would be presented and kidnapped at the end of the level)
(Aquatic Ruins, Sonic2)
- Giant Fists
(A great mech head with 2 thin arms with BIG gloved hands)
- Metal Sonic
(A great race for Amy's rescue, with Eggman's battleship taking-off in the background)
(Sky Chase, Sonic2)
(Wing Fortress, Sonic2)
- Egg Giant
(Sonic2 Final Boss)
Extra: Westside Hill
(Tails' Exclusive; Emerald Hill, Sonic2)
- Egg Driller
(Emerald Hill's Boss)
(Angel Island, Sonic3&K)
- Fire Breather
(Angel Island's Boss)
(Marble Garden, Sonic3&K)
- Twin Digger
(Marble Garden's Boss)
(Sky Sanctuary Included)
(At the start of the level, before the Master Emerald being stolen)
(Launch Base, Sonic3&K)
- Red Eye
(S3K Death Egg's Boss)
- Mecha Eggman
- Egg Bomber
(S3K Final Boss)
Extra: Hidden Palace
- Metal Knuckles
Like Sonic Robo Blast, there could be possible to have tons of extra contents to add to the game, like guest characters, like Shadow or Rouge, or could have more revamped classic levels as extra contents, or even new, fan-made levels.
There could also exist a level select on the likes of SA2's or Sonic4's, in 2D, with the South and Westside Islands and a small portion of Central City for Ep1 and Angel Island and Death Egg for Ep2, then everything could be connected together in a complete version.
About the shields, Sonic Colors could give us some good hints of how to expand their uses.
So, what do you guys say of this? These are just ideas of mine that I'm here to share to someone who might have an interest on creating a project of this size... I have no more ideas for now to share, I'll be waiting for any comments.
