RetroCollect's Robotnik Wreckage Competition at Replay Expo 2011

RetroCollects-Robotnik-Wreckage-Competition-at-Replay-Expo-2011You’ve read our Nintendo-themed competition announcement for Replay Expo, but what about the other end of the spectrum? As promised, we will be on the look-out for the most seasoned Sega gamers around who are willing to tackle a rather heated battle on the familiar title- Sonic the Hedgehog.

Before you go thinking about your prize winning ability to storm through Green Hill Zone act 1 in thirty seconds, the challenge RetroCollect is putting forward will have even the more experienced blue hedgehog fans up to the test.

Those who have looked into the Top 5 Sonic the Hedgehog Sega Mega Drive ROM hacks we touched upon a while back may already be familiar with this upcoming challenge. Using the incredible time attack themed Sonic the Hedgehog 1 @ SAGE 2010, we will be looking for gamers ready to storm the exhilarating Boss Attack mode. This section of the game puts you up against all six of Dr Robotnik’s inventions from the first game, one after another with not a single ring in your possession to protect you. How quickly can you defeat them all without taking a hit?

Unsure what this challenge is all about? Then watch this video below showing you what exactly you’ll be facing at Replay Expo in a few weeks.

Without a doubt this challenge seems tough, however RetroCollect HQ has a fair few successful attempts often finishing with a time around the five minute mark. Casting our measly score aside, we’re looking for a skilled Replay Expo attendee to showcase their skills and set a record even Sonic would be proud of. With prizes up for grabs, there is nothing to lose!

So if you’ve tried your hand at the RetroCollect World Championships on the day or fancy jumping straight in and taking on the mighty Dr Robotnik, come stop by the RetroCollect area at Replay Expo and show us your abilities on the Sega Mega Drive.
