Hack of Sonic the Hedgehog

Description:

This is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Genesis. It nearly completely changes all graphics, music, and layout. Sonic’s sprite remains the same but the rest is mostly changed.

The game consists of a single maze-like level which can take 20 minutes or more to complete. A special boss awaits at the end of the maze. Most of the power-up monitors from Sonic 1 are still present in addition to two new ones. Monitors with red and blue arrows will change the stage layout when hit. Breaking monitors with a snowflake on them will freeze the level or thaw it out if it is already frozen.

The music is notable for being several sets of DAC samples which are played together. These segments will play in random order making for unique tracks each time the game is played. This also saves space used by making a single song. The song segments are well composed and make for great atmosphere to the game.

Short hack, but awesome.

Reviewed By: MathUser2929 on 07 Jun 2016

This hack has a maze like structure so it may not be for everyone. It may be worth trying out anyway tho as the music is really excellent for the console and the new graphics and palette are great. There are playthroughs on youtube if you wanna see the ending for those of you that lack the patience to beat the game. I recommend playing it anyway.
