You’ve seen countless Genesis and Advance-styled Sonic fangames, but there is only one project out there that is channeling the look and feel of the 8-bit adventures. I’ve talked about Sonic Mayhem before and I have been always one to praise the project. Over the weekend, the project’s lead, Amesuki, has released a short demo, pictures of the new zones, and a gameplay video.
The brief demo (download here) runs for about a minute and, to me, is a picture perfect re-creation of the 8-bit Sonic games. The music, the graphics, and the physics all feel correct. I just wish it were longer!
Check the video for gameplay of one of the best fangames around and hit the break for screenshots of other levels.
