this is my best Sonic game so far (thats why its called "ultimate"). the controls was a hard piece of work so I hope you'll enjoy playing it :)
the game has 4 playable characters at the beginning and 2 secret characters to unlock. the game features a password-saver so you don't have to start it all over again.
*password bug fixed*

But this time, have AAAAAAA LOOOOOOOOTTTT of glitches, I don't know why
Somebody tell me if I'm not the only with this problem :/

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

This is a pretty fun game, like the sonic advance games I used to love playing on GBA when I was younger.

My Overall Summary of the following review: 3.50 Stars.

Long Version:

Despite being over a decade old, this flash game is still very well done. For one, I like the fact that you included the four main characters of the cast, and even threw in Amy and Shadow for extras.
In terms of physics, I think that you NAILED it. I mean, up to this point, most modern-day Sonic games have physics that don't really stand up to or even match the Genesis/MegaDrive games, so for this to have those physics - and to have them done so well - was like an answered prayer for the nostalgia-lovers, myself included.

However, there ARE a few gripes that I have with this game:
First off, while the physics were incredibly well-done - and the overall level design, despite not being very complex, was solid - I DID notice that the second level seemed to suffer some glitches; some minor, others game-breaking. If those were to be fixed, then this would make the game even better.
Also, while I like the inclusion of the extra characters, it still doesn't change the undeniable fact that all you have to do is play as Sonic and Tails, and you would have already played through the entire game; By that, I mean that not only do the characters play exactly the same, but the lack of any extra levels for any of the other characters makes this seem more like an INCOMPLETE fan game rather than a true fan game. My advice: Just add a few more levels for all of the characters, and it wouldn't be such a damper on its overall design.

So, to sum this thing up, I'll put it this way:

Ultimate Flash Sonic: Very good fan game...but it needs plenty of work before I can give it any higher a rating. However, I DO like what I was able to play, so if you could just expand this game even a little bit, then you would make this reviewer a very happy camper.
