Makes with the working





Shiny / Sounds


  • It’s a pixelated mess.
  • No resolution options so it’s a scaled pixilated mess.
  • Even at 4M (yes, I measured) it still looks like molten pixel goo.
  • And what’s up with that transition animation from running up a ramp to level ground.


  • This game takes a lot from the sonic the hedgehog playbook
  • The running in this just looks so slow though.   How do you fuck that up?
  • The voice acting is Okay
  • Seriously, I think Yuji Naka is gonna sue somebody


  • Look at all the hipster pixel!
  • Voice actors recorded in different places.
    • Some characters sound louder and crisper than others.
  • The music is kinda like Sonic’s except more annoying
  • All the “hmph!” “typhoon” “yah!” got this game muted within the half-hour mark.
  • I can’t give it 1 chair, because the graphics and the sound are there and you can see/hear them.
  • But I’ll give the lowest possible because they’re terrible!




  • I had to commit some fuckery to get the Xclone to work.
  • Was intermittent controller support listed on the store page?
  • It “works” with the XClone but every movement or button press is considered a suggestion.


  • Tried with both a Dualshock 3 and Two different 360 controllers.   Neither were detected.    Steam sees them though, as do most other games
  • Standard two button run and attack scheme
  • However, if you expect me to platform without a controller, you get one chair
  • The third xbox controller finally worked.    The controls are decent enough.   However, you still get one chair for making me go through all that work


  • Sonic-like platformer that in 9 minutes ignored over 10 of my jumping keystrokes.
  • Controller? Fuck your controllers!
  • Neither the DualShock with Xboxdrv or the NVidia Controller were detected.
  • What’s that, you’d like to reassign controls? Aha, fuck you!




  • This is a shameless Sonic clone.
  • It looks worse and handles worse er er #moreworse
  • It captures nothing from the original and the real kicker … it’s slower.


  • Let’s just ignore for a second that this is a two bit sonic the hedgehog knockoff
  • You expect me to platform without the use of a controller.
  • The game falls short of capturing the sonic experience.
  • Worst of all, it’s just boring.   And for a game, that’s criminal


  • Running the risk of pissing all over someone’s favorite furry game
    • And trust me when I say I have no issue with fursons and their fursonas.
  • This could have been a competent Sonic & Knuckles clone.
  • It has the two characters with slightly different abilities that allow you to reach different parts of each level and beat bosses a different way.
  • Unfortunately, whatever positives it may have had are knocked right back down with graphics that make the Genesis look competent, incongruent voice-acting, and borderline non-functional controls.
  • $15 when it’s not on sale, fuck no!
