Sonic fan Joseph Waters has been busy working away at his 2D fan game Sonic XG and has recently released the above preview video. The game is already looking pretty cool, with Sonic, Tails and Knuckles being playable over a range of imaginative levels. New power ups are shown, including a strange cloning effect, and chaos emeralds can be collected to enable super forms.
I love watching videos of fans games such as Sonic After the Sequel and Sonic ERaZor that aim to extend the the 2D Sonic gaming experience. I just hope a final version of Sonic XG is at some point completed and released. Check out the demo here.
The ‘XG’ stands for ‘Extended Genesis’ by the way.
