Of course; it’s your LP, you should go with whichever way you feel is the right way to handle it. Just figured I’d throw in my two cents is all.

I mean, the next most sensible option in my opinion is to just keep on doing it zone-based since there's literally only one zone where it'll result in a longer than average video at worst anyways but sure do whatever you want, just don't be surprised when you get the same comments you did at the start of sonic 1, shrug

Oh yes! Sonic 2! the first game I got! It was really hard when I was young too haha.

So yeah, better use savestates after each act Mr Cow, but let me give you a hint if people didn't tell you already, it helps finding the emeralds if you want:
All of them appear in act 2 of each world, so 6 worlds + the bonus one when you get them all. And as a kid, I never found the 6th one.

Fun Sonic Facts!

At the end of Acts 1 and 2, a panel is spun, which signals the end of the Act and provides a reward based upon the picture it ends on, which itself depends upon the player's performance:

Dr. Robotnik: no prize. This panel comes up when no other panels are qualified for, which is most of the time.
Ring: Ten rings are added to the player's ring tally. This is obtained by finishing the Act with a ring count in a multiple of ten. Useless unless you get to the end with 90 rings.
Sonic: 1-up. This is awarded if the player finishes the Act with exactly two lives less than when they started it. A very strange and exacting level of mercy
Tails: Continue. This is awarded if the player finishes the act with 77 rings and with exactly the same number of lives as when they started it. If you need this, you won't get it, which seems counterproductive.

Bounce cloud! It's like

OWL CONTROL

, but it's just bounce cloud!

Shame that after this brief appearance, bounce cloud isn't in the game again.

at least if I remember correctly, it's been like 10 years since I last played through this.



Those hang gliders always threw me off as a kid. My siblings seemed to not have any real trouble with them, but I couldn't really get the hang of it myself. Pun intended.
I love how raocow calls the rings "coins". My sister always did the same thing and my brother would always give her a hard time about it

Oddly, this game seems a lot less well designed than its predecessor.

Slightly interesting boss with multiple phases. And Robotnik doesn't show up at all! A first!

sky high zone is a really comfy stage with its atmosphere and soundtrack but the hang gliders and clouds and act 2 are also absolute bullshit

also that turtle enemy is a blatant reference to gamera.

this is not the only gamera reference we'll be seeing in the game gear sonics and a certain megadrive sonic boss may have been influenced by mechagodzilla as well



there's also a little hidden 1up if you go all the way to the left in the springs section near the west side of the map. hop over the 1up (don't break it) and yellow birds will hop out of the trees. no explanation. i like it.

Interesting note: If raocow had continued playing only one act per video we would only just now be making it out of sonic 1 genesis

I can’t believe there are actual zones after the first one. You mean to tell me you’re not underground the entire time? There are bosses other than the antlion?! Mindblowing.

This is the funnest fact so far. I played this Sonic 2 as a kid (as well as the genesis sonic 2) and had absolutely no idea there were other possible rewards. I probably got the ring once or twice when I wasn't paying attention, but I'm pretty sure I never got the others--and I was semi-confident there was no bonus to be had in this game. Neat, and also very specific.

After nearly ten years Darwin the hang glider returns to raocow's LPs.
Speaking of which, hang glider mastery is not the only thing Sonic has a lot in common with Runman.
Both run fast, both are good sportsmen with up beat, friendly, competitive attitudes, and both were banned from BBC airwaves from 1993-1995 over controversial remarks made about then prime minister John Major.
Coincidence, or shocking dual identity?
