Doctor Robotnik's Creature Capture

Hack of Sonic the Hedgehog


This is a hack which changes Sonic the Hedgehog for Genesis into a entirely different game with new gameplay. It stars Dr. Robotnik whom must capture creatures with a net and put them in creature capsules. The graphics are the same as previous Sonic games but the rest is mostly changed. Most levels are open by default.

The ROM should be in BIN format. The patch is in XDelta format as the games data has been shifted. Shifted data is incorporated into IPS patches thus copyrighted data is incorporated into IPS patches. Using XDelta fixes this.

Complete reworking of the game!

Reviewed By: diablo666 on 14 Sep 2021

Now this is not a “Run through the levels from point A to point B”, this is completely different. Collect all the animals, unfortunately, one at a time, until the capsule of our villain and only after collecting all of them completely-find the “Sign and turn it over on Eggman’s face”.

Does it sound simple? I wouldn’t say that. Each location is made in different ways, different number of animals, different placement of the capsule, different placement of the sign. It may also turn out that there are obstacles on the way.

It is necessary to act carefully and, preferably, quickly at each stage (each act). The better the time, the closer you are to the special secret that the author of this hack himself left. So motivates, and, at the same time, entertains such a concept. Everything has been worked out at the highest level.

I will highlight the music separately: “The new music fits well into the entourage of the game, and the old one is remixes of these zones, but they sound pretty good”

Is this a hack? This is more than a hack. This is a new game! And I recommend it for everyone to pass
