I've been playing Sonic and I have a question: I've played mostly Mega Play version, the best novelty of this release -although I hate you can't save scores when on-the-go for later uploading, as usual with Switch games with high-score features, sadly-, and although I put the dash on off, I've noticed both dash and drop dash are featured in this version. I really have it on off, but they appear anyway. And at least drop dash didn't exist when this version got first released.

Anybody else with this problem?

@Moroboshi876 I can't answer your question as I haven't bought it yet.I'd like to know about Mega Play though. I understand stages are altered slightly from the original but are they played one after the other the classic way or is it strictly a time trial mode with online leaderboards? The wording on the game's E-shop page makes me think it's the latter and I quite like the idea of that.

@OorWullie It is a high score mode as in Hamster games: you only have one credit, in this case one life only, but you have to clear stages under a strict time limit, between 1 minute and 4, depending on the stage. When you die you lose and upload your current score.

There are no special stages, and slower stages aren't present, namely Marble and Labyrinth. When you pick up a 1UP monitor it doesn't have any effect, entering the giant ring either.

It's a hard mode, in other words. And it's cool because of the change of strategy it forces you to make after all these years of muscle memory.

It seems that it was the arcade version on Mega Play system, designed to give people a taste of what Mega Drive / Genesis could offer. So these are essentially shorter versions of the games, but more difficult.

@OorWullie You're welcome. And remember: this is a mode. There is also the original one, a time attack just for Green Hill Zone act 1, display settings, region settings, save slots... a great game from M2.

Recently I've noticed that when I'm browsing the menu of Sonic, when I push right with the analog stick it goes up. Does anybody else have this problem?

In August I had my left joy-con repaired because, among other problems, the stick didn't register up movement correctly, and it worked well since. But this strange issue makes me fear a new problem. I have to say that in games where I had that problem I haven't got it anymore since the repair.

Another month has gone and we didn't receive even one new Sega Ages game, and they had to be monthly released, even 2 for month was a possibility. Nothing announced for tomorrow, and next week is already November. I'm becoming impatient!

There's a nice discount on Sega stuff at the moment. So I picked up Thunder Force IV and Outrun. I would've grabbed Virtua Racing as well but it's still at full price. I spend my days hoping for those Saturn and Dreamcast games Sega hinted at if these Ages games sold well.

I have most of the games already. And stopped buying them day one as soon as I realized they were discounted not long after release. To make the most of my money I wait for a sale on Mexico, where sadly there's no sale of these games at the moment. Anyway the only one I don't own already among the discounted is Alex Kidd.
