Sonic Spinball - April 2011

Dr. Robotnik has assumed control of Mt. Mobius and turned it into a mechanical base. Utilizing energy produced by the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magma"]magma[/ame] flowing under the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volcano"]volcano[/ame], this new monstrosity (the Veg-O-Fortress) has the power to transform helpless animals into [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robot"]robot[/ame] [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery"]slaves[/ame] at an astounding rate. Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails fly onto the scene to mount an aerial assault, but Sonic is knocked off the wings of Tails' airplane by a blast from the fortress. He falls into the water, but is rescued and taken to the subterranean levels of the Veg-O-Fortress. The fortress must be destroyed from the inside-out, and the only way to make that happen is to trigger an eruption in the volcano it's built on. Sonic knows this can be done by removing the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_Emeralds"]Chaos Emeralds[/ame] that keep the volcano stable. Robotnik, however, is also aware of the fragile relationship that exists between the Emeralds and the mountain, and he's set up an elaborate Pinball Defense System to make sure the precious jewels don't go anywhere. ~c/o wiki

Time to make this interesting with

SEAHAWK'S SONIC SPINBALL SPEED SCORE CHALLENGE:


The user who completes the game and acheives the highest score efficiency (score/time) will have their run posted on Retrouprising's video channel on Youtube.

Menu screens and the end of level bonus score countups will not count against you, so feel free to let your bonuses count up slowly to show off how awesome you are. Bonus stages will still count, though.

You don't have to submit a screen with your score on it, I can look that up myself. Just complete the game and submit your score.

Let's see what you can do .

re: Sonic Spinball - April 2011

I think that is a great challenge Hawk. Will this be done on other games as well?

The other games all have save features, so I can't do that unfortunately.

re: Sonic Spinball - April 2011

Now I did.

THANK YE GODS ITS OVER THAT WAS AWFUL.

The final stage is what happens when you don't give software developers good coffee for their workday.
My god that was horrible. I know now why I never beat this as a kid--I never stood a chance against such a stage. I lost SIX LIVES on the final stage. SIX, and you only start with THREE.



I really, really apologize for whoever has to verify this. It's BORING, and 90 minutes long .

No apology necessary Seahawk - The comedy value on that last level more than made up for the length of your vid. - Tell me, how many times did you swear?

- Good job to both you and Dojah - I'm now going for a lie down as my eyes hurt.

More than my mother would ever approve of.

At least I see I'm not the only one who had a rough time getting past the impenetrable sock defense.
