Sound Test Saturday: 21st Anniversary Edition!

My readers, this day is what all true Sonic fans strive for!

Yes, today is June 23rd, and you all know what that means! The Blue Blur himself, Sonic the Hedgehog, is celebrating his 21st birthday today!

So, let’s have a bit of an extravaganza ourselves! 21 is the magic number, so why not go for that many tracks, just for today? A great number of these tracks have been tipped by you guys, and I thank you all for your contributions!

Due to the sheer amount of music to be featured beyond the jump, I’ll refrain myself from commenting on each track. Instead, I will leave you all with this. If everything goes according to plan here, Sound Test Saturday will be moved to SEGASonic: Radio next week. Yes folks, SS:R will return sooner than you think! And with the big move, we will introduce a new feature on our weekly music column: interviews! First ones up are Freen in Green, followed by xTrickyWolfy and Ring Energy should all go well!

If there is any particular artist you would want featured on a future Sound Test Saturday, if there are any remixes, covers, or originals you want to share, if you have work of your own you would like to see up on the site, then do not hesitate to notify me at vizardjeffhog@sonicstadium.org!

That being said, Happy 21st Anniversary, Sonic the Hedgehog! Still unstoppable after 21 years!

The Secret of Wacky Workbench

Wacky Workbench might be one of the more annoying, if not incredibly unique, stages of the Genesis-era Sonics, but it has reasons to keep coming back. For me, it is the catchy music (both soundtracks, mind you), but now, it’s this secret that I found in a video yesterday. I revisited the ol’ bouncin’ factory to find this secret room for myself.

Basically, all you have to do is use the level select code (up, down, down, left, right, A/Space) and go to either the past or bad future of Wacky Workbench. Then, make your way to the bottom path immediately to find a hidden room within the wall of a quarter pipe.

The room in the past has an angel statue. If you jump onto her, she spouts out an endless supply of rings. In the bad future, there’s an AWESOME Robotnik statue that you can blow up. However, once you do so, spike bombs will plummet from the ceiling and make you go “ouch.” If you’ve discovered this secret already, good for you. I haven’t, so deal.
