Review: Sonic Boss Attack - Demo 2
At first glance, I'd say, "OMG not another Sonic fangame." For some reason I had nothing to do and I downloaded it. 1.something megs isn't that bad..Once I started playing it, it wasn't bad at all.
I'll start with the bad news. It'll be disappointing if I put the bad news at the end.
Obviously, most of the graphics were ripped in this game. Most of the graphics are from the Sonic games for Genesis. However, some of the sprites, I have no idea where they came from. They're probably still ripped though. At the beginning of each level, there's a picture(looks hand-drawn) of a character from Sonic the Hedgehog. The Sonic drawing could use improvement, but the picture of De. Robotnic was impressive!
sound and music
Obviously the sound is off the internet. However, I don't care about that because I understand that it would take a long time to make Sonic sounds from scratch. Now for the music: Yes, the music is obviously not original, but I don't care either again because making Midis is hard work. Some of us aren't musicians.
Now the good news:
Each level had a well flowing level start screen that is seen in all the Genesis Sonic games. I thought that was a good point to the game.The boss selection was creative. If it was just a lit it would be boring. However instead, there's a whole interactive level to explore for the boss select.The title screen wasn't anything really simple. It just showed the title, gave a brief explanation of the plot, etc. Overall though, the presentation was good.
I expected there to be a platform movement for Sonic, but I was completely wrong. A custom platform movement was made and comes with custom scrolling too! The AIs and player engine were well set up, although not perfect. In a newbie game, you'll never see a custom platform movement. But here, this is definitely not a newbie game.Not only the programming was done well, but the bosses were also very creative and fun to play(although somtimes very hard) I played til the end of the game. The ideas for the bosses were great!
Aside from ripped graphics, this isn't a newbie game! The game is fun and addictive(until you beat it of course. Lol!). Don't overlook this game; it's worth playing at least once!
