    I just made it move by timing my jumps.

      That's how I initially thought it was supposed to be done. I felt so vindicated seeing it being done that way in speedruns decades later

      you can get through the earlier barrels just fine by doing but tails copying your movements makes it impossible to do it using this one, instead you will constantly get juuuust close enough that you think if you just keep at it you can get through

      also

    frick you, the barrel was bullshit
    at no point earlier or after are you expected to press up/down to interact with platforms

    it's just bad game design

        but if you jump on it it goes up and down, which leads you to believe that you must jump on it with good timing to make it past.
        the more you jump on it the more progress it seems like you're making. so you have no reason to stop.

          everything in sonic & knuckles was supposed to be in sonic 3, they just didn't have enough time to fonish it before the release date

        Seesaws do not move when you jump on them. You are stuck with your only option (without using the d-pad)being jumping off. After that you try using the d-pad. Compare it to the barrel that moves when you jump on it. And if you continue jumping up and down you can get through some of the barrels, but not the one from OP.
        If seesaws did move from jumping they would've been as infamous as barrels. I have really hard time understanding why is it so hard to grasp for some people.
        It's like defending the infamous "you just walk over it" hole in first NES TMNT game, saying that you should just walk over it when it is a hole and you are expected to jump over holes for the rest of the game.

          I wasn’t really defending it, just pointing out something else in the game works very similarly

      Sonic enters a special animation when standing on it. It was obvious for anyone with a brain that you could interact withbit from there

          He rotates while standing on the barrel, it's a special animation

          The Origins version gives a hint by giving exclusive animations for the barrel. Anyway, I'm too old to be bothered by things like this in games, I looked it up instantly when I found it the first time.

        By your own fricking logic they should start moving on their own since animation is the same.

    Actual bad design. It uses a mechanic that isnt used anywhere else, has nothing to indicate what you should do, and its not even common sense, like needing a key to open a lock. The whole game is about movement and momentum, and neither is needed for this barrel. If you wanted to make something you were stood on go down, would you A: Jump and use your weight/gravity to push it down, or B: Crouch and use your mind powers?

        the 4 year olds had gameboys and NESes bought for cheap, not the edgy Genesis.

      it's so shitty design that I've never even considered looking up on a guide, always thought it was a skill issue. I only beat this game after seeing the barrel being discussed here on Ganker back in the day

          Like I said, This thread is going on for almost 20 years. There's nothing wrong in admitting it is badly designed even though it's not, technically, impossible to figure it out

            I figured it out when I was 5 years old because it moved up and down so obvious I tried pressing up and down

                the design is so simple a 5 year old can figure it out. It's not bad game design, it just filtered sub 90 IQ morons.

      Tell me how you look up and how you crouch in this game and then ask yourself why you can't do that on the barrel, moron-kun.

        How was I, a 5 year old child at the time, supposed to know that those controls would do something else while standing on it?

        would have taken like two seconds to add a little flashing up and down arrows above and below sonic the first time the player steps on a barrel. but no, i gotta crack open a manual to get it done. god.
        good thing the classic collection on the ds had a guide for it among other things ingame. best way to play the classic series

        There's nothing in the instruction manual that tells you how it works. Trust me, I double checked after some anon made that claim not too long ago.

          The same way you figured out that pressing the button repeatadly while holding down would make you spindash, or that pressing down while moving would make you roll. A five year old playing Sonic should have enough curiosity to wonder why he can't crouch or look up while standing on the barrels.

    what the frick? people got stuck on this? Why would you not try pressing up and down

  11. 3 weeks ago
    Anonymous

    Pressing up and down doesn't move the barrel at all if it's at a standstill, it has to already be in motion. This means that it's harder to notice that pressing up and down is having any effect at all that wasn't caused by jumping on it. You have to alternate up and down with proper momentum timing and do so for several seconds to confirm that it's doing anything. There are several barrels earlier in the zone that you get past by jumping on them, whereas there is nothing in the entire game before that point that teaches you to try using up and down for anything besides the spindash or panning the camera. And not only does it look like you can slip past the barrel by jumping on it, but you can actually do so if you have perfect jump timing (t. person who actually did this as a kid and then ragequit when I ran out of time before the next checkpoint)

    In short, the game doesn't just not give you any indication on how to get past this fricking thing before you get to it, it straight up TEACHES YOU WRONG. Yes it's bad game design, and the sole black mark in one of my favourite games ever.
