You really got to commend his patience though. At least he isn't saying "Sorry guys, I'll do this tomorrow" out of frustration.

Alright the boss may be challenging but all of the deaths so far that I saw were his fault because he didn't wait or he wanted to glomp the octopus so much by below the oil

Good Night guys, good spoiler season for y'all, that is, if the guy get past this zone (and it's not looking promising)

His fault and SEGA for allowing that piece of shit zone in. 

Would've rather have had I don't know Metropolis Zone before this.

There's only two real problems with this zone for him.

1 - The jumping green platforms can easily crush the player

2 - that boss is just awful. You rings are easily unrecoverable because they'll fall in the oil and you have to dodge so many projectiles.

I guess I'm the only one who likes Oil Ocean lol. Also Metropolis was extremely frustrating back in the day. While I like Oil Ocean, I'm not thrilled with what they did here. Not because it's hard but because it doesn't really add or change much. Yeah, Act 2 has more fire to it but Act 1 is more or less exactly the same as the original and then Act 2 seems fairly straightforward unless there's some alternate paths I'm missing.

I like Oil Ocean's theme, the trope and general design. But the stage itself? Holy fuck I loathed it back in Sonic 2, I loathe it here. The design is just bullshit.

I'm not going to lie, this boss looks like complete shit. It's absolutely broken. It's only partially the player's fault. The main problem here is that the boss is garbage and terribly designed. I've played Sonic 2 since I was a little kid and I know I would have problems fighting this thing.

I might have missed this, but can the flame shield reflect the small bullets from the small spinning....things from the boss? They were able to do that in Sonic 3&k in lava reef..

WHO IS READY FOR ANOTHER GAME OVER?!

Ugh I can't take this... there's no way this is the ONLY guy who's streaming this game or has made it this far...

I am kind of curious if there's a way to go back to a previous level before you've beaten the game, like when you select a save file, maybe select an earlier level so you can gather some lives up. That's the strategy I use in some other games when I'm stuck on a level. Or do you have to start at the last level you've gotten to everytime you start the game? Hard to tell obviously

the boss its self doesnt look that hard. wait on the left or right side. the boss will shoot three lazers, duck or jump. the platform will fall, quickly jump to another one and attack the things shooting at you. DO NOT worry about Eggman at this point. just destroy anthing that shoots. When Eggman is lacking in defense then attack him

Sorry, most of those hits (even from the boss) are entirely his fault. He's taking absolutely NO TIME to learn the layout. All he's doing is trying to zip through and hope he can beat the boss through a game of trial and error. Instead, he keeps getting hit and hit. Oil Ocean is a zone that PUNISHES you for playing so blindly.

I'll tell you one thing. He WON'T beat the boss if he keeps up this "strategy."
