My new favorite character to play this game with, hands down.
The sheer flexibility of this moveset is mind-blowing, there's so much at your disposal here and every single ability has so much usage you can get out of it. Traversing environments with this guy is unbelievably fun and his physics work so much better with the level design than the base game.
An absolutely outstanding character that has become my go-to when I play SRB2. Easy 5/5, keep up the great work.
Man, I can't even begin to describe how well made this character is.
In a sea of Sonics, this one really does stand out on his own, and is honestly my favorite so far. Been an adventure fan since first completing SADX, and seeing so much attention to detail as well as translating both adventure movesets into SRB2's enviroment is a very impressive achievement.
That aside, it's filled with charm and love that I always love to see in mods. You two are a dangerous combo, and I can't wait to see what y'all cook up next!
I'm sure other people have said most of what I want to say about this mod, but yeah. It's incredible. Metalwario + Golden Shine are a dangerous combo. The sprites are really well-made and fit in the game nicely, and Shine's meticulous, precise scripting (seriously, I remember him testing an OG-Sonic Adventure movement tech that almost no one would have noticed by default prior to release) brings it to a whole other level.
It's no wonder it took so long to develop, but man it is so awesome to see the progression from the OG SMS to now. Don't burn yourselves out, but this was an absolute winner. Great work!!!
Incredible!! Easily one of the most impressive character mods I've ever played!
Normally with character mods, I find them as fun distractions from the main game since I almost exclusively play as vanilla Sonic with a keyboard and mouse; but vanilla Sonic to me never felt that great on a controller. Adventure Sonic on the other hand controls like a dream with a controller and perfectly captures the game-feel of the adventure games. Adventure Sonic makes me want to play with the simple control scheme and automatic breaking because he feels so fluid to control in all his mobility states.
The sprites are also expertly done and the attention to detail and flair make this mod feel so professional. This character has transformed the way I play SRB2 and will be my go-to character to play in the future.
Outstanding job Metalwario64 and Golden Shine and thank you so much for making this mod!!
One of the most comfy and overall fun experiences I've had with this game. He controls ludicrously well on both controller AND Keyboard & mouse, and his moveset flows together super nicely.
Spindash is certainly a strong tool, what with it's insane speed conversion and overall control, but I'd be a fool to say it's what he's all about. The technique of uncurling in the air to momentarily negate air drag has been a bit more useful than one might think it'd be, and despite it seeming to be practically useless I've found a pleasant amount of ways to use the spindash hover technique to my advantage.
Homing attack is quick and snappy as it is in Adventure 2, and homing poses make it all the more aesthetically pleasing. Far thok serves as a VERY nice middle ground between single jumps and the homing attack, letting you have the burst option without forcing you to risk homing in towards an enemy if you don't want to.
Bounce attack is super versatile here, from helping you get just a teensy bit more height when you need it, or helping you platform slightly more precisely, or even letting you perform a superbounce with speed shoes/super (you can also use the bounce to "extend" homing chains to keep the poses going, which is a small thing that gives SA-Sonic a teensy bit more flair in my book.)
The Lightspeed Dash/Lightspeed Attack, despite being moreso based upon Adventure 1, functions wonderfully within the scenarios it's meant for. Want to grab a cluster of rings or fly across a line of them? Light Dash. Have a group of enemies you wanna take care of quickly or have an enemy you really don't feel like dealing with? Lightspeed Attack and watch it get turned into scrap. The Maximum Heat variant of the LSA that goes for enemies only also eliminates basically any issues of going for rings you didn't want in that scenario.
While his custom physics took a bit to get used to, they allow for movement and control that's significantly more precise compared to that of Vanilla SRB2, and it makes playing him efficiently feel way more rewarding and satisfactory.
On top of how he plays, all of the sprites and visual effects present here are absolutely gorgeous. I have yet to get sick of seeing any of them even a little.
It's been a long while since I've had a character that holds no notable complaints from me, and SA-Sonic smashes through this threshold with flying colors. Happy I was able to help in ways that I did for such an awesome project filled with very commendable amounts of passion, love, and effort.
All 7 emeralds collected more times than I can count at this point. Go play him. Gotta open your heart, dude.
My most anticipated SRB2 character addon is here, and I've finally had a chance to give it the old college try!
The moveset for Adventure Sonic is an amazing blend of both SA1 and SA2, with some great QOL improvements such as the little trail that shows you exactly where you're going when you're spin dashing. And in spite of being such an expansive feeling moveset, it never feels overly complicated and doesn't require a ton of buttons. Feels right at home on a controller!
He feels so accurate to SA2's physics that I'm almost astounded. The amount of time and effort that it must have took to make him feel just right really paid off, as a ton of my SA2 reflexes translated wonderfully into this character mod.
And the spritework-- my god, the spritework. It's amazing! Adventure Sonic is one of the most expressive feeling character addons I've seen, and that's saying a lot with the huge amount of quality characters out there. Little details such as the tricks he does after a homing attack really add that extra level of polish to him.
Overall, this is absolutely worth the download. It's insane just how high quality it is and I'm definitely going to keep it loaded in every single one of my netgames going forward. This is one of the all time greats for sure. Thank you so much for such a wonderful addon!
From 1 year of waiting was atleast worth it.
And also i'm here to report a bug:
Everytime i'm running and then i release SpinDash one time, Adventure Sonic (AKA SA-Sonic) becomes ultra fast for no reason.
Although the addon is great.
I give it a 5 star rating!
