Well there you go! A leaked off screen video of ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 4’. You can clearly see four levels, Splash Hill Zone, Lost Labyrinth Zone, Casino Street Zone, Mad Gear Zone not to mention a special stage. Each seem to have three acts and a boss battle.
Four Zones with Three levels each and one boss means twelve levels in total, four bosses and a special stage. Although, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a fifth final zone. At the right price I think that’s a good amount of content for a downloadable game.
As for impressions,
It looks like an early build and indeed the video is called ‘Sonic 4 Alpha Splash Zone‘. But too pass judgement on what I have seen, I Can’t say I’m impressed with it…
While I’m not really sold on those graphics, which seem bit cheap! My biggest gripe would be that the physics look totally off. Sonic picks up speed far to quickly, the jump looks floaty and at one point Sonic stands still on the side of a cliff… But again, it is an Alpha build, I hope we can expect all that to be fixed by release.
One positive thing to note, the ‘infinite run animation’ makes a return and the level designs look nice, clean and colourful.
I’m starting to feel sorry for Sega, they clearly cannot catch a break with those leaks! I really hope the best for this game. For everyone’s sake!
