An update at last!.. S&K Other Modes

Update: Other Modes page added to the Sonic & Knuckles section
Ok, sorry sorry sorry... sorry. It's taken me far too long to get around to this. I can't believe my last update was in February, that's got to be a personal record. As I've mentioned before I've been doing other stuff, but it's here now and proof, if you needed it, that I will finish this whole bloody thing, even if it takes me ages to knock together the last few pages.

Ordinarily the Miscellaneous page comes along with the Other Modes page, as it's typically quite a short one. However I'm moving to a new flat this weekend and will be without Internet for two or three weeks. You've waited long enough so I thought I'd finish up Other Modes for now, and then add the little Miscellaneous page when I can.

Other Modes of course comprises of a number of additional important areas of the game that don't fit into anywhere else, including the Special Stage, Bonus Stages, details about Super and Hyper forms, and a bit about the three lock-on games, and it's the biggest of the non-level pages, so go and have a look!

As a kid I was rubbish at the Blue Sphere Special Stage for ages, then one day I finally did about five in a row and my friends and I became obsessed with collecting and sharing passwords and trying to work out how many levels there were. I don't know at what point we gave up but I'm pretty sure it wasn't anywhere near the ridiculous 134 million that there actually are. I hope you weren't expecting me to go into detail on every last one of them though because, well, I haven't. A while ago I did wonder if I could cover some of the recurring layouts that appear repeatedly across the game, which would make for a nice little guide that I don't think anyone has done before, but then, where do you draw the line? There must be loads of them. Perhaps I'll return to it eventually, on a rainy day, or if someone else wants to write about them, they're more than welcome.

On the subject, Hyper_Sonic alerted me to this exciting looking thing in the comments of the last post: Blue Spheres Forever, a fan version of the game that features a level editor! Oh how excited the younger version of me would be to see this, with all his own designs for the Special Stages drawn out on grid paper. I can't get it to work on my computer yet, but it's still being refined and looks amazing. I think there's a new version just released that I'll have a go at when I get a chance.

Sit tight, I'll be back before you know it!

P.S.- Dr. Eggman makes a cameo appearance in this new Disney movie "Wreck it Ralph". You should check out the trailer.

LiQuidshade says Doomsday map MIGHT not come :( Besides, if you want the maps that badly, just go to the Sonic center or Sonic retro.

The Blue Spheres forever will be implemented into Sonic 3 HD if any of you are still interested in that :)

Death Egg acts 1 and 2 yes, definitely. Doomsday maybe, but probably not. No software I have seems to be able to map it, and it's likely to be too difficult to do by hand. You'll get them when you get them and not before.

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!
