Sonic Warrior by 2dforever Sonic Warrior by 2dforever
2D Forever

One of my favourite birthday memories as a kid was the birthday I got Sonic CD. Sounds sad, I know, but as a 7 or 8 year old it was the most important thing in my life at the time.

Before the days of unboxing videos on YouTube, my parents did a great job with boxing up my Sonic CD. Itís all I wanted for my birthday so I shredded through all the obvious CD-sized items to find itÖ Looking depressed but trying to be grateful to my parents by putting on a weak smile, I had one giant box left to open. Iím sure you get where Iím going with this. I really was an ungrateful shit as didnít care whatever it was, but when I got to the bottom and found Sonic CD I was ecstatic Öand probably foaming at the mouth a little.

Anyway, I love Sonic CD. Not just for the unboxing magic, but it is actually a fantastic game. One of my favourite Sonic games by far. This was a quick sketch for the Sega Blogís competition. Iím assuming I didnít win (shame), so Iím posting it up anyway.

Itís Sonic mid-dimension as he moves between the time zones. I remember thinking that whole idea and the effect for the transition was really strong. But not as strong as the awesome special stages Ė Those were simply brilliant.

I loved the style and the animations.  And the PAL version music.  Man I wish they'd make a game that looked like the cartoon intro!
I have a soft spot for this game but I can't get past the clumsy level design, easy and obscure boss fights, and annoying special stages.  There I said it.  Sorry to poop on your nostalgia.  The time travelling element was cool

Yeah, have to agree on the bad boss designs. They're all pretty weird! But I like most of the slower-paced level designs... apart from Wacky Workbench.

Yeah it's a different feel as a whole.  More exploration less speed.  I suppose that fits when the goal is to find and destroy that machine thing to get a good ending

All that aside though, I wanted the game for 2 reasons: the animated intro and the awesome special stages. Wasn't disappointed!

I have no words on how beautiful this is. I don't comment on just anything.
