over and over here. So I figured it would be worth taking a look at some of the Blue Blur's games over the next couple of months. Let's start with Sonic Spinball.
The first level isn't too bad. It's a little tedious at times, as you may have to try multiple times to get to the targets you're trying to hit but, again, it's not really hard. But then there was level two, which was frustrating but still beatable, and the third level, that level is pretty much an exercise in futility. By this point I have used up most of my lives and this is the level where I might as well be trying to use the controller with my feet for all it matters.
You know the annoying ass parts of Casino Night Zone in Sonic 2 where you're bouncing off the bumpers and for a brief moment you're completely out of control. Well, they took that and made a whole damn Sonic game like that. For about 20% of level one I'm completely out of control, by level three it's like 70% of the time I might as well just put the damn controller down. I never got further than that and I don't know anyone who ever did so I have no idea what's beyond level three, it could be an FMV of Topanga from Boy Meets World doing a naked backwards crab walk for all the fuck I know.
And the tragedy is that in many ways this was a cool game. The level designs and sprites are great. And this is the only Sonic game to feature Princess Sally, Boomer, and Bunnie Rabbot from the Archie series/SATAM Show. You rescue them from pods during a bonus game.
