Keep going up. It's very high up on both acts.

Sonic 2/CD new levels! How to play inside!

Hi guys,
So as you know the recent Sonic 2 port has a finished Hidden Place Zone, but just days ago it was discovered the ORIGINAL Hidden Palace is playable in the iOS version (complete with the original music)! Here's how to access it.

Start a No Save game and enter the level select (tap S-E-G-A letters in that order, then hold with 2 fingers on the title screen). Then on the sound test play the tracks in this order to enable Debug mode (HAS to be done):
If done correctly you'll hear a chime. Then punch in this sequence:
Again, you'll hear a chime if done correctly. Then just select Hidden Palace and you're in! The old layout level is now called Proto Palace Zone and is mostly playable. There is no end post, though you can stand on the emerald blocking the pipe to warp back to the level select. Screenshots are attached.

Now about Sonic CD. Over the last few days it was also discovered that the two planned new levels, Desert Dazzle and Final Fever, are actually playable through porting and hacking in the latest build of the game. The level layout is seemingly complete and level art is all there. Because they only appear in the January 2014 build of the game, it's assumed that they WILL see an official release in an update! While you can't play the levels yet, you can see the layouts of both acts. Just follow the link to the Sonic Retro forum topic at http://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?showtopic=26302&st=3210

Really exciting stuff for classic sonic fans! There's even a few rumours that Taxman/Stealth are working on a brand new retro title...
