What would be your best time if YOU ran through a Sonic level?
« on: November 12, 2007, 10:10:42 PM »
Exactly what the title says! If you went through a Sonic level using your own running speed and usual abilities, what would be the best time on your clock?
It can be any level from any of the Sonic games...even Emerald hunting stages!
Stages you're familiar with would be a good place to start.

For me, I'd probably get 30 seconds on Green Hill Zone Act 2 of StH. I'm fast at running [not as fast as Sonic of course], and I know the level very well. :P

There is no way a human get 30 seconds on GH. Not likely.

But damn. It would be so much fun to go through a Sonic stage in real life. I would suck at it but who cares, I'd have a ball.

Although there are a bunch of stages that are physically impossible for a human. You mentioned emerald hunting stages. Heh. Digging would be interesting, but actually completing Pumpkin Hill would be... challenging.

I would fail doing Lost World (Sonic) because I would hit that door to the second area so many times that I'd knock myself out.

I don't think humans were even meant to survive Sonic levels.

You would fail GH2 because your spine would snap when you went through the chute.

I wish I had time to make an amusing picture illustrating my point.

I'd say it would probably take me a cool 10 seconds to complete Knuckles' Hidden Palace...I mean it's basically a straight run.

Which brings up the question: how fast can you run a mile? I don't know myself, but I figure others care and so will.


I HOPE YOU DO

Lost World, that would be a kickass stage since you get to swim unlike Sonic and press switches underwater. Pretty dangerous... and cool. You also get to play with the spotlights in the dark room. Watch your step.

btw I'd like to do City Escape on a bike.

What else... Flying Battery would be super intense if you did it irl. But I bet I can do act 2 in under 10 minutes at least.

Scrap Brain huh... at least it's physically doable huh?

I have a dreadfully low stamina, so I'd probably take a minute or so in Green Hill 1.

Heh, guess I was just havin' thoughts up in the clouds... maybe around 2 minutes or something, I think I forget how long the stage really is. >_<

Scrap Brain would be pretty interesting...

23 second GHZ1 >_>

But seriously, Crazy Gadget IRL would be awesome, assuming you could light dash through that one gap and you can breath. Cosmic Wall would be sort of fun too.

I was gonna mention Crazy Gadget. Wouldn't the gravity switches KO you though? How will you be able to survive the drop while upside down? Not to mention more areas where homing attack is required.

And to answer genus's question. The world record for running a mile is about 3 minutes 45 seconds. But it would probably take me more than that.

Although my body would not sink as Sonic's, Tidal Tempest could be possible in a couple of minutes.
Stardust Speedway? No way. I'm afraid of great heights, and well, I can't roll up into a ball to pass those tubes at the end of Zone 2. :(
Collision Chaos is the same...

But maybe I could do a Quartz Quadrant 1 run in... 5-10 minutes?

I'd love going on a hoverboard, zipping through Splash Canyon. It'd be like a water park... sorta.

I'd run through Sand Oasis in about 4 min if it werent for the building part.

I'm pretty fast, but I'm no Sonic... or Shadow for that matter.

I'd just LOVE running through just about any Sonic stage a human could actually finish!

That being said, guess that rules out Wave Ocean. :(

Wave Ocean would be good if the whale isn't there.

I was thinking about Ice Cap SA1 if you had snowboard or skis in tow. But then in the last part there is the big drop... oh damn. Imagine going through that stage and forgetting about the last drop until the last second.

In fact more than half of us in more than half of these stages we would probably just end up killing ourselves. Whether it be GH2's chute like genus said or something else.

Though 2D levels are confusing considerations in general since you have to ask - can you walk /around/ things or do you have to climb each platform? There would be a lot more than running in a lot of these stages 2D or 3D.

A lot of sections would require ladders where there weren't before. (as well as all enemies being removed)

Also I was considering Westopolis, but I guess that would end after the first freefall.

I don't just enjoy running when I'm playing Sonic games... so here are some estimates.
Green Hill: 30-45 seconds.
Emerald Coast: About 3:30:00-4:00:00 (the vertical slopes would slow me down a bit)
Final Rush: I'd be dead within a minute.
Seaside Hill: 6:00:00 (I'd have to swim to skip the final huge loop.)
Final Egg: I'd get somewhere around 4:00:00-5:00:00. But what about the light dash section at the end? I can picture it now...

*sonic99189 does repeated spins to imitate Sonic's spin dash*
*sonic99189 comes out of the spin and says "Ready..."*
*sonic99189 says "Go!" and thrusts forward, putting his hands behind him in the classic sonic running pose*
*a distant wail is heard as sonic99189 falls to his death*

Yeah.

And would you believe this is what I think of when I'm bored?

Final Rush, that's hilarious.

Let's think of more stages which would kill us immediately.

Shadow stages that are instant death, assuming we start at the same spot Shadow does:

Final Haunt, Central City, Westopolis (though a bit delayed due to the long fall), Death Ruins (if not from the landing, then from the fatal tumble down the incline to the loop), Sky Troops, Cryptic Castle, Space Gadget, Cosmic Fall

Other instant-kill stages/impossible feats:
- Aquatic Base
- Windy Valley (XD)
- Evil Foundry
- Night Palace
- Final Fortress
- Mystic Mansion (hello, if you were to make it so far, how exactly do you pass the fan, much less jump over lasers w/ a rail bobsled)

Think someone could make it through Skeleton Dome? (W/o enemies, maybe.)

Instant death in Evil Foundry what. You could do everything in that stage. Those gaps are short enough to jump over and you just have to be quick with the fans and spikes.

Good luck to anyone trying to do Weapon's Bed mission 5. Or Biolizard XD

Let's say there are no enemies for any of these stages. I take it this is a running/speed test not combat/survival and the enemies make most if not all levels extremely dangerous by default.

And as for Mystic Mansion I would say remove the lasers on the cart ride. Either that or you're able to make it jump as well. (probably a level on the thing that does that...)

Someone should make a hack of the 2D Sonic games that puts a human in there...

BUT PLEASE NOT MARIO!!!

And I want to try SH out like that. Lets see...

* JDGA starts glowing yellow...
* JDGA Chaos Controls onto the ARK
* The Eclipse Cannon starts glowing green...
* The Final Fortress is blown into a trillion pieces!!!
* JDGA comes back to Earth, no longer glowing yellow.
Done!

I have a great idea for an instant death stage. Mad Matrix. With all of the spinning(and how exactly would you seem to be able to go to the terminals?) It'd probably seem impossible. As for the main subject, I'd love to go on a hoverboard and Ride through Sega Carnival and Dark Desert. I'd possibly do any course from that game, as long as I get a hoverboard.

Well Mad Matrix takes place in cyberspace. Your body is weightless during the circuit ride things right?... and you would probably be able to go through them even as a human.
