So now that we’ve gotten through the “proper hacking contest” that is such a pillar of the Sonic Retro world, it’s time we moved on to the contest that really matters. That’s right…The Sonic 2sday 25 Ring Challenge. Didn’t think I forgot, did you?
Now, I’m going to say something completely obvious here: I forgot that Emerald Hill Zone used the Starlight Zone music in this early build. And after watching video after video using that music…well, it almost works. Funny how that happens. But that’s not the point. The point is, you want to know who won. Who was able to run the fastest, collect the rings, and be a true “Super Sonic Dance Attack.”
Wait that doesn’t make sense. Doesn’t matter. Moving on!
With a grand total of eleven people entering this majestic contest, the “Grand Prize” winner was…
Yes, with a blistering ten seconds, he/she was able to do what Melissa Joan Hart tried valiantly, and failed at. Though I would be interested to see Melissa take a crack at the challenge these days. Though she is probably too busy raising a family and staring in the ABC Family smash comedy “Melissa and Joey.” So sure, she’s successful and had a titillating Maxim magazine spread years ago…but I am still allowed to make fun of her because of her Sonic skills. Because I’m a Sonic fan. And have nothing else to give to the world, right? ;___;
And now, some “honorable mentions” of people who “almost made it.” Just like David Lascher almost made it with Sabrina.
Ocrilio was so, so close! If I ever meet you in person, I’ll buy you a drink (certain restrictions apply)
Stolken decides to have a seizure at the end (this in no way is meant to insult our readers who have real seizures)
Cap.Z. decided to play in Pal format. I feel so bad for everyone who lived in England and had to endure the music like…that. How did you ever play video games ;-;
This man, calling himself the “Retro Video Game Nerd,” is talking to me. I don’t know if I should feel honored or scared. I’ll go with both.
This man entered the contest a month early how is that possible
Thank you to everyone who entered the contest, and who knows, maybe we’ll throw another one where you win something cool! My only complaint? Not one person used an unregistered version of hypercam. Oh well, there’s always next time. Until then, true believers!
