I wish the Sonic Mania update allowed progress to be saved after each act instead of after each whole zone. I rarely make any progress in this game because my attention/enjoyment usually wanes after 1.25 acts per session. And maybe I suck too much at Sonic, but spending over 15-20 minutes on platforming and special/bonus stages feels like a slog when I arrive at a zone 2 boss and lose all my lives immediately because I don’t understand what to do and then I get thrown back 2 acts.
Speaking of slogs, I was happy to hear that there is a sound test code for unlocking all the medals and extras because I’d like to play Puyo without first mastering Blue Sphere. But the update has now locked the level select/sound test screen behind 16 medals, so I’ll never get a chance to use the code.
