    Sonic for the VC

    Hey all.
    I downloaded Sonic the Hedgehog, and I can't get Sonic to use his run move. You're supposed to be able to hold the d-pad down and press one of the jump buttons (which on the wiimote are either A, 1, or 2) and he's supposed to charge up. The instructions that downloaded with the game reiterate this.

    But it doesn't work. I've tried to use my gamecube controller instead of the wiimote, and it still wont work. Everytime I go to try and charge it up, Sonic jumps instead of starting to run.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    This is Sonic The Hedgehog (1) right? There was no "charge up" in Sonic 1. Maybe the directions are generic for the Sonic series. Maybe they'll release Sonic 2 sometime?

    Huh? Are you sure there wasn't a charge up of Sonic's run in the first one? It's impossible to get past certain parts of the first stage without running up a ramp. I remember being able to hold down and pressing jump to charge up Sonic's running. He turns into a ball and it makes a sound like a car's engine revving up.

    I'm 100% certain that on Sonic 1 there was NO charge run/attack, that was brought in for number 2. You don't need it to get through the loop the loop ramp things you just run fast enough.

    You're all correct... If anyone has the sonic mega collection can find out for themselve... statinary spin dash charge is one Sonic 2 and up...
    If the Xbox 360 console falls and hits someone, especially a small child, it could cause serious injury.

    Who would spend their Wii Points on Super Mario 64 when it's out on the DS? I personally enjoy the classic and it's awesome.


    If I don't know you, and if I don't talk to you on the forums, don't send me a friend request. I won't add you and will not give you an explanation.

    Well, Super Mario 64 is $30 for the DS, and I dont like using a control pad instead of a joystick.

    Sonic is a classic. Yes. No charging in Sonic 1.

    Why argue over VC game downloads? Lots of us are of different ages so you're all going to have different classics and favorites. I'm stoked for the rest of the sonic series. I'm hoping they'll put up Sonic CD as well, it's the only one I haven't owned.

    I really hope they put up Sonic and Knuckles, as I've only played a little bit of the game, but from what I've played it aw awesome.
