Sonic - Beginner Tutorial (Patched)

By XerclipseXerclipse Last updated

UPDATE: Since this guide is in a 1.03 version of a game while this guide teaches Plus, we gotta move to another set of leaderboards. Feel free to still look at this or join the new leaderboards. https://www.speedrun.com/sonicmaniaplus

The guide will still be updated here but just know that its only the plus update. To new players you will most likely be playing the plus version so let's join the plus leaderboards.

Hello runners. This tutorial series will teach you how to speedrun Sonic Mania. The category I teach is Solo Sonic, Mania Mode, no emeralds.

Each video will show a walkthrough of an act per zone. That video will be divided into two parts.

Beginner:
- Shows basic route
- Shows alternate / back up path
- Does not use tricks that take too much time to practice.
- Does not go over how to optimize the path

Advanced:
- Gives players a challenge
- Saves more time
- May not show the most optimal path
- Assumes you watched the beginner parts first.
- Please don't try this unless you get comfortable with the stage first.

Keep in mind that this series is a work in progress. I do not have every single act done yet. So as I update this guide, you are welcome to stay updated as well.

Input display is shown at the bottom right corner. You can also download the video and slow down the frames if you really want to understand the timings of the input.
