A Challenge #4

Its been a while since the last challenge so....

On Megadrive Sonic the Hedgehog (1) Green Hill Zone Act 2 sprint through the level in the fastest possible time and grab and post a screenie.

This challenge runs for one week.

The winner gets a warm fuzzy feeling knowing the are better than anyone else and this smiley

BTW i know screenies can be doctored in PS so this is based on honesty.

Act 2 because me and my mates used to play that level doing this exact thing. Im curious to see how your times compare

I think theres a cheat that lets you jump straight to any level.

There is an alternate route you can take that can get you to the finish in as fast as 0:18 - but I've never managed to get it right.

Just to fresh ya heads, remember the little cheaty to get straight into act 2 without poncing through act one.

Title screen, when Sonic appears, press UP, DOWN, LEFt, RIGHT, then A+START. Select your level with confidence

My final entry.
The key to a time under 0:24 is, instead of continually going right, to turn left at the first drop (after the jumping fish), jump over the spikes, drop down and blast though the right hand wall to collect the 'speed boots'.
I can almost make it in 0:19, but it's the beginning that's the key.
