    The amount of slowdown on this 15-year-old 2D platform game is AMAZING. Someone needs shooting.

    I almost thought it was my Supercard which made this run choppy/slow but that not the case? :/

    I was just surprised at how bad the physics is compared to the original, you bounce all over the place. Sad they even let this one be released.

    What I thought too fryguy I was like whats going on here? Then a loaded up sonic 3 to test with its super fast action and it worked fine.

    I mean if it can play with no lag on the genesis then surely....

    canvasch is right the Mr. Nintendo go ahead release it man needs shooting and so does the porter.

    I think it was a 2 day port and then they went to the bar and got hammered.

    I can't think of why its so slow..

    1.) Just badly ported?
    2.) Textures and sprites not converted into a newer format and left in RAW uncompressed genesis state?
    3.) Aspect ration compression problems when a game is going from being played on a tv to a small screen?
    4.) The porting job was given to chickens with only a years worth of coding experience.

    I can't play the game is gets so bad I am sad because I wanted a OLD SKOOL revival playing it! [​IMG]
