@Techokami You mean the white dot? OK, yeah I see that.
Nov 14, 2019, 2:06 PM
@Doc von Schmeltwick No these are based on Sonic 2 (16-bit), take a very good look at the walking animation and the shading of his spines.

@Asuhara iirc only the eyes and colors are different between 16-bit Sonic 1 and 2. Master System Sonic 1 and 2 share sprites, withe the Game Gear shrinking the former.
Nov 10, 2019, 5:24 PM
You mean it only due to his eyes? Cuz' the rest seems mostly based on S2.
Nov 9, 2019, 10:03 PM
There's also the fact that these are based off the 16-bit Sonic 1 sprites and the final ones are based more off the slightly-different 16-bit Sonic 2 sprites.

Despite how much I prefer the beta sprites, I do understand the reasoning behind the change; to differ-ate it from the console titles and give it a cuter appearance.
Nov 4, 2019, 9:23 PM
A pity that only the Game Gear version of that prototype got released and no the Master System one (or its equivalent from the same time).
Nov 4, 2019, 9:06 PM
Wow, these prototype sprites looks SO much better than the final version!
Nov 4, 2019, 8:38 PM
I wonder which prototypes from Sonic games are left to discover
Nov 3, 2019, 4:10 PM
Uh... the signpost has the wrong color, same to Tails' tails on some sprites in his sheet.

UPDATE: Now it's fixed.

Why do you want him to spoil Sonic Month like that? November 9th isn't that far away. Patience please.
Nov 3, 2019, 1:58 PM
@Techokami do you know what the next protoype is?
Nov 3, 2019, 1:15 PM
It also helps that I'm very close friends with drx, so I had access to the ROM before it was publically posted specifically to get these sheets up ASAP, as well as help with research, like finding the minecart sprites. That's why I gave him special thanks!

@JacobLeBeauREAL Nah, it's just an expected thing to happen.
Also Molly, some users have an instant approval option on their account if they're a trusted submitter. That's probably why these got uploaded so quickly.

@shadowman44 is that a bad thing?

Also I like these sprites.
Nov 3, 2019, 7:35 AM
Of course it was Techokami who ripped these.
Nov 3, 2019, 3:12 AM
Really wish I could have known beforehand that these were ripped and in the queue by somebody else before I wasted a half-hour trying to rip them myself
Nov 3, 2019, 3:12 AM
It's not actually even "Sonic 2" sprites, it's the same style the Master System Sonic 1 used. The GG one shrunk them down.
Nov 3, 2019, 2:15 AM
God damn it you're quick, should've known you were ripping these too before your comment went up about an hour after I finished and submitted mine.
That aside, why do they even have sprites for the minecart if the ones in the prototype are broken anyway?
Nov 3, 2019, 1:49 AM
It's funny that after all these years, it appears that Sonic 2 LD was beaten to the punch with these Sonic 2 sprites - they even made the angle and Rocket Sneaker sprites in the same style!
