First of all, Happy New Year everyone, I hope you had a good break with family and/or friends, and are ready for the return of Zone: 0's resident artist Ricky Earl! It's been about a year since he's been available to contribute, so in case you've forgotten, he's vowed to supply a piece of artwork to accompany each level page on the site, or at least as many as possible. You can do it Ricky! Keep up the good work.

We're up to Chemical Plant now, check it out!

Meanwhile, I've managed to get quite far with the Sky Sanctuary guide. On the map, I've had to recreate the platforms that float up and down by hand from lots and lots of screen shots, which has set me back a bit, but I'm pretty sure I can get this one out there within this month. That's still pretty good, by my standards!

Also, a quick thanks to AAUK of Sonic Wrecks for giving Zone: 0 a couple of awards in his 2011 Sonic Wrecks Awards - we won Best Specialist Website and Best Use of Images/Graphics. Yay!

Besides, you CAN swim (well at least in sonic 3).

Eddie Lebron gets something spot on:

"TSSZ: Which Sonic game was the first you ever played, and which one is currently your favorite?

Lebron: The very first game was the first Sonic game I ever placed. I think I was around 6 or 7 at the time! My favorite is still my favorite game of all time, which is Sonic 3 & Knuckles. There is this epic scale to the game that makes it stand out for me. The music, the levels, the story, and the gameplay make this adventure you’re having seem so grand and important. There is such a beauty and lushness to the design of the game that separates it from the others. The fact this is all accomplished with the limitations of a Sega Genesis makes it my number one and has been for many years. I can’t say even bad things about the game: it’s perfect."

Although, if you combined sonic 1 and 2 in the way S3K was made I think it would be better :) (also I do miss running past the sign post in 3&K :( )

Sonic's latest Wii U outing turns away from the popular and well established speed dashes of recent games, in favour of a more traditional platformer approach. But does it work? Get ready for one of the most different Sonic games in every respect!
We've finally done it! The Zone: 0 guides have reached their last big update. Owner LiQuidShade has new projects on the horizon, but this site will always remain in his heart.
