    Sonic 1 prototype found!

    Hidden Palace has closed out the year with another legendary prototype drop. Following last year’s release of the first major Sonic 3 proto, now comes the release of the first major Sonic 1 proto!

    This one has it all. The Green Hill ball! The Marble Zone UFOs! The end-level fist pumping! Sparkling Zone! Clock _ork Zone! And moooooore!

    Check out the history write-up here, and the detailed game page here.

    They also dropped a few more Sonic protos the night before — Spinball (with different title music!), Mean Bean Machine, and a review build of Sonic Adventure 2.

    And like that, another grail has been found. Give thanks to the folks at Hidden Palace, and have fun!
