Project Needlemouse (new 2D Sonic game)

Post by C=Style » Sat Jan 23, 2010 5:25 am

Have we talked about his already here? I've done a search and couldn't find anything, Anyway a new 2D sonic game is on it's way, kinda news to me lol but then I'm not really up on the latest goings on in videogames at all.

Teaser Trailer here.

Has been confirmed recently that it will contain everyones favourite spiky blue hedgehog as the only playable character... at last! link.

More info here.

So, sounds good yeah? Just what we wanted, a brand new "back to roots" 2D sonic game. Yay for Sega, surely they can't mess this one up? :wink:

Ye saw Sonic would be the only playable character. They got me with the ploy thingy they ran on their blog, thought there would be more playable characters...as usual. Im happy, but still not 100% convinced. Just becuase they "go back to the roots" only starring Sonic, doesn't really say much. I dont want something thats basically just a HD version of Sonic 1. Im hopeing for a 2D HD Sonic game with some new twists. I dont know what tho...maybe some sort of XP system that can make SLIGHT changed to your speed/toughness jump ability ect. Maybe an interesting unlock system? Maybe a perk system similar to the one in MW2 that can change sonics abilitys one way or the other. They could be unlocked via special challanges preformed during the stages. Maybe a small inventory system? I don't know, just throwing ideas out here. =)
They need to do something, because i've played the first 2D Sonic games on pretty much every consoles i own and i don't need a HD version of them. When it comes to SEGA in 2010 i dare not to take anything for granted. >.<

I remember some talking about this but don't remember whether it was here or on another forum :D Anyway, hope the game finally meets the expectations of fans and newcomers alike.

It's hopefully going to be good. But you have to wonder why it's taken Sega so long. They must be really slow learners.

Anyone played Sonic 1 Megamix?

If ever there was an example of how to do a good modern Sonic game, it'd be that.

They just need Mario as a hidden character & it will automatically make it the greatest platformer EVER :D

I like the fact that people are saying this is the first 2D sonic game in years, yet the Sonic Rush series gets nothing what so ever, for being a 2D Sonic Game.

All i want is a 2D sonic in HD, with good music like in Sonic Rush, nice big interesting levels (hidden areas and items maybe even some set pieces) and some intersesting bosses, taking up the whole screen or even larger!
