An incredible effort

Reviewed By: Red Soul on 15 Aug 2022

This is one of those hacks one has the good fortune of seeing once in a blue moon, spurred by pure talent, dedication and love for a franchise.

Sega themselves could never have done it, and likely never will, considering how badly they treat their fans and most of their IPs, but as usual, fans come to the rescue!

What you get here is an incredible demake of the Blue Blur’s first outing on the Mega Drive, perfectly adapted in scrumptious 8-bit flavor, ready for consumption.

Zones are faithful and even the music was ported over fittingly to the incredibly nostalgic Master System sound style.

If you are a Sonic fan and are still reeling back from the latest of Sega’s blunders, play this, enjoy a trip back in time and feel vindicated, all at the same time.

Version 1.04 Recommended - Yes
