PlaySega.com has recently launched a flash version of the original Sonic the Hedgehog, complete with a level editor that allows fans to create, share, and play their own Sonic levels online.
The Sonic the Hedgehog level editor, a creation of Mediatonic, lets VIP members of PlaySega create Sonic levels relatively easily. Using a simple interface creators lay down scenery tiles, place obstacles and enemies, and set starting and ending points, resulting in a somewhat primitive but definitely playable Sonic the Hedgehog level.
The bad news? You can only create your own levels if you sign up for a VIP subscription to PlaySega, which starts at $5.95 a month. The good news is that even free members can play the levels, and should you choose to upgrade, a three-month subscription for $14.95 nets you the free Sega Saturn-styled PC controller, seen below.
