Sonic After the Sequel fan game has the BEST MUSIC EVER photo
Sonic After the Sequel fan game has the BEST MUSIC EVER
by Tony Ponce

There's this one Sonic fan game that has been sitting on my hard drive for a while now called Sonic Before the Sequel, a prequel to the events of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. From the little I have played already, it's quite the fun little gem that keeps the Genesis-era Sonic spirit alive as SEGA continues to tweak the hedgehog for modern platforms -- 15 years since Sonic Adventure and only now starting to get the hang of the third dimension.

A couple weeks ago, Before the Sequel developer LakeFeperd released a follow-up entitled Sonic After the Sequel, which obviously chronicles the events immediately following Sonic 2. If you are itching for that sweet 2D Sonic nectar and can't quite stomach the changes Dimps made to the formula in recent years, you need not look any further.

But the big highlight of this project, and what elevates it to god tier, is the game's absolutely insane original soundtrack available for standalone download here. Ignore the music in the trailer above, which has been pulled directly from Sonic CD. The real thing, which also includes remixes from past Sonic titles, is simply indescribable. I don't think you can truly understand how good it is without a few samples, so I've taken the liberty of posting some samples below. Enjoy!

Super Mario Crossover 3.0 is just around the corner photo
Super Mario Crossover 3.0 is just around the corner
by Tony Ponce

Three years ago as of yesterday, indie dev Exploding Rabbit's Super Mario Bros. Crossover was unleashed online, and the reception couldn't have been warmer. For the benefit of the unfortunate few who haven't heard of this darling fan tribute, Crossover is a tile-for-tile remake of Super Mario Bros. but with the ability to swap Mario out for a number of NES heroes, like Link, Bill Rizer, Simon Belmont, or Mega Man. The game was later expanded with more characters plus graphical skins to emulate the look of other NES, SNES, and Game Boy games.

Version 3.0, scheduled for some time in May or June, will introduce all new stages taken from Super Mario Bros. Special, an obscure Japanese exclusive for the NEC PC-8801 and Sharp X1 home computers. There will also be rearranged stage layouts depending on your selected difficulty, so what was once a leisurely bridge stroll over a crystal clear lake could now be a perilous platforming challenge across a molten pool of lava.

Finally, I'd like to remind you that Exploding Rabbit is also working on an original title called Super Retro Squad, which is essentially Crossover just with new characters directly inspired by the NES stars. Once 3.0 is out and about, development on SRC will most certainly kick into high gear.
