A fun and challenging game! (Addictive warning!)
Well, Hi everyone! :)
I'm finally decided to make another review because I felt that I haven't contributed in this site for a pretty long time.
Well the title of the game sounds pretty interesting, doesn't it? Okay, so basically in this game, you actually fight the bosses from the original Sonic the hedgehog and the original Sonic the Hedgehog 2 in a certain order and judging from the order of the bosses, I guess it is from the easiest to the hardest boss, however, I am not going to tell you all of the bosses in order because I want you to discover this game and I hate saying spoilers!
So anyways, when you enter the main menu, it looks pretty cool with a nice background of moving stars and Dr. Eggman doing his evil laughter that he usually does when Sonic loses his rings in the original Sonic the Hedgehog games.
You have the choice of playing as Sonic or tails, however it kind of sucks how you can't play with both of them together like the original Sonic the Hedgehog 2. They are like the 2 best buddies who are heroes trying to defeat Dr. Eggman together.
You also have another 2 choices, which is "Time Attack" and "Survival". There is also ranks depending on how well you do.
When you select survival, you are not timed, and your rank is based on how much bosses you have defeated. The more bosses you defeat, the higher your rank!
Time Attack mode:
When you select Time Attack mode, your rank is based on how long it took you to defeat the certain amount of bosses. Usually your rank is higher if you defeated more bosses in a less amount of time.
And now lets go more in depth with other details! :)
Well, the graphics of the game is the same like the original Sonic the Hedgehog 2. It's bright, vivid, and 2D. I honestly love the look of Sonic in the original Sonic the hedgehog 2 the best! His facial expression shows more vivid and cool than Sonic the Hedgehog 3 in my opinion.
Well, the game has the original background music and all the other sounds from the original Sonic the hedgehog 2. I always loved the epic boss battle music! :)
This game is VERY addictive, I always want to beat all the bosses in Time attack mode with less time and a higher rank! You will probably feel the same with this game to tell your rank reaches "S"!
The game does indeed have some depth in it. Why? Because it is for seeing how you defeat all of the bosses in the game and how much you improve in rank! For people who loves fighting only bosses in Sonic the hedgehog games, then this is the right game for you.
The game may appear to start off with easy bosses but trust me, the bosses WILL KEEP GETTING HARDER AND HARDER as you go on. Did I ever mention that there is no rings in this game?
This game doesn't really have a story.
Well, I got to admit, this is one heck of a good game alright and thats about it!
You were actually patient enough to read this review? Well, Thanks for reading this review and please give me more advice to improve in my future reviews! Thanks again everyone and have fun! :)

Sonic 2 - Robotnik's Revenge Description: Robotnik's Revenge is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 by ColinC10. It is a "boss rush" hack, in which all seventeen bosses from Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 are fought in a somewhat arbitrary order over the course of a single level. The game takes place in Death Egg Zone from Sonic 2, and is meant to imply that there is more to the ship than there is in the original game.
Time spent completing the boss run is kept and the total time is given at the end of the course, along with a ranking. In Time Attack mode there are infinite lives and rings that can be found in-between battles. In survival mode, there are only 3 lives and no rings.
