This boss makes me think of that one fangame that let you and another player fight each other in Robotnik mechs. After a quick search I have discovered it was called Ultimate Robotnik Duels and it was fun

What happened with the Sonic History lesons? The were fun to read! Is there just a lack of documentation surrounding CD?

yes, wacky workbench is "bad", but it's also hilarious, so who can really say, if it is truly bad or not
Well it is a decent hack but sometime its just too repetitif there no level that actually pop in your face and your like oh yeah that level they all ressemble themselves and just monster along the way.

I'm pretty sure it also inspired

Mania Chemical Plant Zone Act 2

, so it has some merit... and I say that as someone who would rather play the whole of Chaotix than two acts of Wackbench.

Many were furious when they purchased the game intending to promptly erase its data and found the disc unwritable

it cannot be stressed enough how freaking gigantic this level is, btw. it's just a disaster maze where everything looks the same lol

also raocow hasn't figured it out yet evidently but

in this level you change path swappers manually, by hitting the yellow & blue signs. it's weird and not obvious, i know

i've honestly never played a video game in my life

Huh, usually the machine has been in the upper middle part of the level.

But, yeah, I must have misremembered something, becuase I definitely never reached Stardust Speedway. Either the PC version rearranged some levels, or I did in fact Game Over to Robotnik in Wack Workbench, and stopped playing.

Welp, looks like raocow will, yet again, not get all the special stones in this game, since he only has 3 Time Stones, and 3 chances left to nab them. And he started so strongly too.

Oh, man, raocow, if you're enjoying this level's past music, then you'd really enjoy the original's present and good/bad future music, too.

This level's also got my favorite Temporal Duality track remix. I'd post it but I don't want to pre-empt Super Llama and be rude!

do people really have that much trouble beating the Metal Sonic race? I don't think I've ever actually lost it now that I think about it. The final boss, though, that's always been a nightmare for me

I heard some peeps saying that the US soundtrack fits this stage better but i couldn't disagree more. It's so calm you could make an ASMR video with it.

Much like a lot of Sonic CD, this level is kind of a mess design-wise, but man, it's super cool aesthetically. I feel like if anything, that's the reason why so many people remember the game so fondly - all of the levels have fantastic artwork and super cool themes as well. There's something incredibly impressive about how the artists for this game created unique backgrounds for every level in every time period, and Stardust Speedway has some of my favorites.

(spoilers for something that won't be coming up until much, much, much later):
The Sonic Mania version of this zone is one of my favorite levels in that game as well, because it takes the gorgeous aesthetic of the past and present versions of the level, and then completely redesigns the actual levels themselves so they're not just weird labyrinthine tunnels. The result is something that feels familiar, but is actually totally fresh- it's like the way people remember Sonic CD being, as opposed to what it actually plays like.

The Act 1 music is one of my favorite songs in Mania, too. I think it does a good job of combining the vibe of the US present music with the motifs of the Japanese present music. It's cool how Tee Lopes took the melody of the piano part from the original song and spun it in a different direction.

As much as everyone (myself included) loves Stardust Speedway JP, the US gets some great music too. I love the Present theme.

I remember the creator of this mario fangame called 'Super Mario: Blue Twilight DX', mentioning that Sonic CD is actually pretty short if you ignore the time travel gimmick (he needed to play it to grab a sprite of Metal Sonic's death sprite)

Why would they put a back-facing spring after where the screen locks by the goal?

Further question: why do they lock the screen when you get near the goal anyway? Do they not want you going back to get the 50 rings? Why are they so insistent on discouraging you from using the game mechanics the game is designed around? This game is so confusing.

Has anything in this game been designed in such a way that would make you think the devs didn't just want to troll people stopping them on their tracks every 2 secs? That's why the spring is there.
I know this sounds negative, but rest assured that even with what i'm saying, somehow Sonic CD is still my favourite 2D Sonic.

Fun Sonic Facts

Metal Sonic's energy shield dash (named the V. Maximum Overdrive Attack, a reference to the 1985 anime Blue Comet SPT Layzner, whose protagonist possessed a nearly identical attack also named V-MAX) is used whenever the player gets ahead, and is normally faster than Sonic's max running speed. However, it's still slower than the Super Peel-Out!

I would have thought that you would have gone for the fact that Metal Sonic has canonical hardware specifications instead.
