    Green Hills zone is my favorite from Sonic 2 8-bit just saying. :V But it does break the whole Sonic 1 system that the forum is set up with. Probably just a small typo. xP

    I think that, when they made Sonic 1, "Green Hill" was actually a typo in the first place. They didn't include the S, but then, because designing a game on a cartridge is so cumbersome, they would've had to jump through hoops just to get that single letter to display. So they just decided it wasn't worth it and left it as Green Hill. Might be wrong, but just one of those vague half-complete memories from an article.

    And making a game on a cartridge is very awkward to do, yes, because you're basically trying to get raw electricity to run through a circuit exactly the way you want it to. When there's a thunderstorm, go outside and look at lightning striking or arcing through a cloud, and look at the tiny little curves and bends of the bolt. Now imagine trying to get something that wants to bend and curve and twist like that to go on the path you want it to.

    This, and the tools of that time, which were, of course, much lower-tech than those of today, adds up to, generally, every little thing you could imagine doing when trying to build a game, and even things you can't, potentially making a hell and a half of cartridge layout changes just to squeeze some tiny little thing in without the game glitching out. Same reason the basic stuff for Hidden Palace is still in Sonic 2; it's there because taking it out would give them one hell of a cleanup, but it's unreferenced so unless you screw with stuff yourself you'll never see it. So, basically, that idea I just said about GHZ originally being meant to have an S, stands to reason, even if it's not necessarily true.

    It's possible for the admins to change anything and everything. But we're lazy, and an S really doesn't matter that much, whether it's a single press of the backspace key or ages of reprogramming to add/remove it.

    I noticed that too. tounge As it is, it's a reference to that game more than Sonic 1, but now that I think about it, Green Hill makes VASTLY more sense than Green Hills, since this should be your first forum to post in (as long as you checked out Sea Gate too Wink1), so for fun, let's make a poll to decide on which level we're referencing. Silly

    Honestly, this is pointless and I'm going to say this, I prefer Green Hills Zone because the actual 'Green Hills Zone' has 2 different sub sections inside of it, it's not one single section, therefore it's plural, therefore it's Hills.

    That would make it Green Hill Zones, though..

    And yet there are still no votes for Hills.

    I didn't vote on the poll because I didn't find reason too. I will vote if it means that much to you.

    I think it's safe to say Green Hill is the favorite. The polls are now closed.
