WARNING: This overview post is outdated and the GIFs you see here are gameplay of the original release (v1.0).

Extra Life Classic has been named as such to coincide with the upcoming release of v2 (which i may or may not occasionally call Extra Life Revived). Thanks for your patience! Progress on v2 is very slowly nearing completion.


Extra Life, Sonic's doppelganger from Fleetway Editions' "Sonic the Comic" returns, now in SRB2!

Inspired by the Sonic 3 A.I.R. mod of the same name by Vsgdv (aka Sotaknuck) and SRB2's vanilla cast, Extra Life aims to be a simple character who isn't hard to master, while still providing a solid, enjoyable experience.

However, in order to differentiate himself from other Sonics, Extra Life focuses more on verticality rather than speed.

Well, what can this devilish little hedgehog do?

Just because Extra Life is a clone of Sonic doesn't mean he's stuck with the Speed Thok.
He's got a brand new ability, the Triple Dash!


Again, inspired by Vsgdv (Sotaknuck)'s Sonic 3 A.I.R. mod (albeit working a bit differently than the original), the Triple Dash is a type of aerial spindash that can be activated 3 times before being unable to use it again. By pressing and holding Jump mid-air, you can rev up a dash, which will make you stop on a dime and slowly fall down, requiring quick reaction time.

Releasing Jump will thrust you not just forward, but also upward! This allows you to avoid falling into a bottomless pit and correct any failed jumps...


...and also skip across huge chunks of stages while styling on your friends and foes!


Can they do this type of stuff? Hmmm?

You can also use it to easily take down those Dragonbombers, if you REALLY hate them that much.


And that's all, folks! Time to move on to the credits:

Vsgdv/Sotaknuck - Inspired me with their Sonic 3 A.I.R. mod to make this character
Me - Sprite edits, coding, basically most of the mod
NARbluebear, CloneFighter - Additional help with coding
Sebo2205 - Initially offering to help me out with coding
ChucklesTheHaha - The Extra Life & Jelly Tails CSS art! You've done an incredible job, man!
Icezer - A portion of Alt/Crystal Sonic's code, which was used for Extra Life's taunt thinker! Find him right here!
SuperPhanto - The intro inspired peelout sprites which were used for the run cycle. Check it out here!

I hope you enjoy playing as this character as much as I did making him!

the only update you did is rename it to classic. but oh well.
The classic tag was added so that people can easily differentiate V2 from V1, since V2 is gonna have its own mod page as far as I'm aware - Vanilla

10/10 Would recommend to someone

Very fun to use and gets me out of tough and overwhelming situations in-game! I personally don't mind the minor sprite change, but one thing I would suggest is a more original idle/waiting animation that compliments Extra Life's personality, maybe something as simple as chuckling similar to Knuckles.

Fun to use and easy to learn!
-1 star because no super form :(
Thanks for your review! We're adding a Super form in the upcoming v2 update, so make sure to look forward to that!

it's a great mod and a nice callback to the old uk comics, but the reason i took a star away was because the sprites are just a simple color change for the most part, would have been cooler if they looked more comic accurate but other than that it's a blast to use this guy!

This is a cool callback and fun to play. The only problem I have with it is that I wish there where some sprite changes to contrast to regular Sonic.

Great add-on! Extra Life plays uniquely enough to differentiate him from the other Sonics, which I think really suits him fsr even though I've never read StC.

The only issue is that sometimes you can jump frame-perfectly to *not* recharge his Triple Dash storage. E.g. if you Triple Dash twice, land and jump frame-perfectly, you'll still only have 1 Triple Dash remaining.

Otherwise, 10/10 would become LIFEA0 again
