    I want to make it more apparent, without having to read the whole review, that there is a way to fix the glitches so that others don't review this patch based on a glitched version. To give the patch it's proper due.

Sonic: The One Ring

Hack of Sonic the Hedgehog

Description:

This is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Genesis. It features gameplay in which the hacks objective is to find the single ring placed in each level and special stage. Levels and special stages cannot be completed unless this ring is found and the player will die if they collect it, get hit, and not recollect it. Some levels have been redesigned slightly which can assist with back tracking so the player can search for the ring in all parts of the level. Other features include:

  • Two moves have been added that can aid in the search for the ring. This includes the spindash move, done by holding down and pressing jump, which not wind down if the player releases the jump button. The other move is a ring sense ability. This move allows the player to “listen” for the ring by looking up or down. If it is located within the same vertical “slice” of the level a chime will sound, and the screen will pan left or right depending on the rings position.
  • Two new monitor types have been created. One which increases the time available by adding 20 seconds and a random power-up monitor which grants one of the other available power-ups.
  • A reserve shield feature is also introduced which allows shields to be accumulating meaning that if more than one shield is acquired then the player will still have a shield if hit.
  • Checkpoint behavior has been modified so that passing one checkpoint will deactive other checkpoints. This means that passing earlier checkpoints and still activate them. In the original game passing a checkpoint would simply disable earlier checkpoints. This means it is possible to pass any checkpoint and have it activate. If the player dies they will restart at this checkpoint no matter where it is.
  • Giant rings to enter the special stages always appear at the end of levels after the ring has been collected. The giant rings have also been added to acts 1 and 2 of Scrap Brain zone. If the player fails to complete a special stage they will reenter that stage next time they enter the special stage instead of skipping it. If the player collects all Chaos Emeralds in the special stages the giant rings will still appear but grant 3 lives instead of taking the player into the special stage.
  • SRAM is available for saving game progress. The title screen will change based on where the game was last saved. It is also possible to erase the save at the title screen to restart over.
  • There is now unlimited continues.

The patch is in xdelta format. The ROM should be in BIN format.
