I would like to thank everyone that gave me constructive critisms along the way, including friends and the judges. I really appreciate them.

Wow this hack was the first one I played and man was it a good one. The colors are vibrant and beautiful, the level layouts are fun with many different branching paths to explore and the music is pretty damn catchy. I did run into a few bugs here and there... nothing game breaking but a lot of times it'd have to do with springs. Like a spring would try to shoot me up a path but instead I'd get stuck in a wall.

This didn't happen too often though so it was still a lot of fun.

Also is there a power up... or power down that makes you go slower or was that another glitch I was running into?

The game art is really very good, both sonic and background levels are very beautiful. As far as the songs are concerned ..... I really liked the songs of angelic bay and forgotten land, I couldn't like the songs in the 3 remaining acts.

-Sonic seems to tap dance when braking XD

-For some reason sonic is slow in some acts, maybe when it destroys the monitor with down arrow? I don't know if it's intentional.

I like this hack, art is really awesome and unique. Music is pretty decent, but I think original compositions for each zone would be more fitting than covers/remixes as SMPS. Levels are fun to play too imo. Overall I really like this hack and I would enjoy it even more in potential next release.

This is a huge step up from the last version. Can't wait to see future updates!

I really loved the improvements to art and layouts! Although, I wasn't really a big fan of the first boss, since I didn't like how Eggman kept randomly shooting projectiles after each hit...I wasn't able to dodge the attacks that well....

Overall I feel that this was the most improved from last year, well done! ~
