glitch is knuckle's double jump resets after you pause the game, letting you pretty much skip many portions of the game, including the final boss.

It's insane that a glitch that breaks the game this hard is this easy to perform. This game's bugs are just absolutely ridiculous.

I knew it. I knew it all along: Knuckles can fly. Not glide; fly.

It's not the jumps that reset it's that pausing cancels you out of his slam move, the move gains height before he shoots down to the ground.

Yeah game is broken at this point, all the triggers for loading zones are just hidden behind walls.

I almost want to buy this now just to experience it myself. What is wrong with me?

A shame this had to become a rush job, and that a potentially good show is getting waylaid by Cartoon Network. Then again, SEGA's the hydra that keeps eating itself.

That was only his first half-assed serious run too. Can probably shave like 10 minutes or more because he got stuck once the first time

Sonic 2006 was offensively broken, this merely looks offensively boring.

There's some pretty hilariously broken stuff, though speedrun-wise it's mostly the jumping and loading triggers

Oh wow. They just don't shut up do they? Constant annoying "oh yeah we so rad" chatter.
