Sonic games have always had at least one level that's perfect for speedrun competitions with your mates. Sonic 4 is no exception. Splash Hill, Act 1 is one of the most brilliantly-designed Sonic levels ever. It may not be noticable on your first play-through, but start looking for ways to shave seconds off your time and suddenly it turns into a monster. So here's my fastest run (so far) on the PS3 version of the game:
Of course, it's early days and I've already gone faster on the iPhone version (not while extreme speedrunning, sadly) so there is definitely room for plenty of improvement.
Above: It's possible to get under 40 seconds on iPhone, and most likely PS3 too as the level is identical
It's always been a trait of a Sonic game's first act that it can be completed in under 30 seconds. Surely that can't be the case here... can it?
Let me know how you get on in the comments.
