Not much to say... 5/5

Reviewed By: Cupcom5/NGKFlower on 27 Apr 2019

I literally played all of Lone Devil’s hacks of Metal Sonic (Except CD, since I have a mac and that game is only on Windows), but I really have lots of fun with the ones I was able to play.

I even beat each and every one of them with Each and every character that was playable, including himself.

Definitely a must grab.

I would totally support if he ever decides to make some original IPs, as he is really good at level design.

Version 2.1.2 Recommended - Yes
