Forums: Index > General > Boosting, your oppinion?

What are your thoughts on the recent Boost Mode in Sonic games? Yeah I asked the question on that articles talk page but no one discussed there. I guess thats why we have a forum. Anyway I am asking for fangame planning and should I include it or not?

My guess the Boost Mode is an evolved version of the Light Speed Dash crossed with SatAM's Sonic habbit of bursting into speed without need a running start.

So whats your thought on the Boost Mode? Any improovements you think it should have or might as well be scrapped?--Mystic Monkey sez 21:32, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

I personally like the Boost feature. It allows the player to keep on moving without stopping to attack Eggman's goons.

Hm, Well, what about the concept of burning ring energy? Plus, while the game is faster, wouldn't it make the game too easy? What if it was instead a temporary boost giving Sonic access to full speed instead?--Mystic Monkey sez 22:35, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

I know this is bumping, but I wish for more people to reply so I can decide to go with. Sure ATM I am all talk and no work for my fan games but I am still serious about them. I wanna have a boost feature yet change it and want more oppinions. The first attempt at the boost feature in the 3D games was Sonic Next-Gen with the blue shoes (Boosting was introduced in the side scrolling Sonic Rush. I was thinking of my version of the Boost can be simular to Next-Gens only still as fast as Sonic Unleashed.
(Fun fact, Robert from Next-Gen, the man who custom made Sonic's shoes to react to local crystals chips will be playing a major role in another fan game idea.)
But fan game discussion asside, whats your oppinion on Boosting?--Mystic Monkey sez 17:32, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

Woo! This is something that I can actually ta;ka about cuz I have Sonic Unleashed... In my opinion, I think that Boosting is awesome, it's fun for me to just all of a sudden burst into speed. I also find it funny when Sonic smacks into a wall if he runs into it with Boosting. I'm a Super NOVA! 21:29, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

The way he smacks into walls is funny but a major nuisence for me if I want to earn a nice rank, but I will include it in game ideas.--Mystic Monkey sez 11:19, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Well, yeah, I keep bumping into stuff... I'm a Super NOVA! 18:54, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
It can be annoying, maybe if I include a sort of "slow-mo" moment simular to when Sonic flies through the air which gives you a better chance to side-move.--Mystic Monkey sez 19:01, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
