Sonic 3: Fighter Sonic
« on: January 31, 2012, 04:04:22 PM »
(updated, thanks for re-uploading my playthrough!)
This game just got in my mail today. The cartridge art says something like Sonic Fighter Sonic 3, but the Title Screen says Fighter Sonic. Also, that same music you've heard in that Rayman GBA pirate will loop over and over, getting on your nerves. Sonic attacks by throwing spin dashes at his enemies and jumping on top of them. The B-button jumps, while the A-button attacks. You can jump higher by holding up on the d-pad.

I might be wrong, but aren't the background graphics taken from Sonic Advance?

At 07:54, there's a Starmie that is rolling around. I wouldn't be surprised if Sintax made a Pokemon game using this engine. o_o

WHY IS THIS ENGINE SO OVERUSED?!?!?!?
Sorry,I feel legitimately ripped off and angry right now. We waited so long to find out what this is,and what do you get?
CRASH 3/SPIDERMAN 3/RAYMAN 3/DIGIMON WHATEVER.

Why can't you code a different engine?

I already expected this was gonna use that same engine, so I'm not as disappointed as I could be =p

So how many GBA pirates does this leave left that we haven't seen screens of I wonder. Seems like they're all gonna be Sintax and this shitty engine over and over.

Thanks for sharing your discovery with us!  :thumb:

You're welcome! I simply bought this game off of eBay and it took 3 weeks to get in the mail.

Anyway, I felt disappointed that this uses the exact same engine as the other games Smedis mentioned. How come all of these games have the number 3 in their titles? :huh:

...I really should've figured by now that this game was based on that engine...

Edit: Also, as I just remembered, it's Crash IV. But it's Spider-Man 3, at least!

I'm still utterly curious, incidentally, just what Vast Fame game (if any) the title theme to all these Sintax games is from. I mean, it's got to be from something by VFame, but I wonder what; it's either from a game that never got released, from one that hasn't been discovered, or an unused tune from a game that is known to exist.
