Sonic Advance 2 SP

Hack of Sonic Advance 2


Sonic Advance 2 SP is a ROM hack geared at improving some of the less-loved aspects of Sonic Advance 2.

Changes included:

  • Adjusted enemy placements to prevent many ‘cheap shots’, such as item boxes bouncing you into enemies
  • Many bottomless pit areas replaced with new routes, or made harder to fall into at a moment’s notice.
  • More plentiful Special Ring placement, allowing a more freeform approach to entering Special Stages
  • Special Stage entry requirement reduced to 5 SP Rings

That said, Advance 2 is still a challenging game! Bosses haven’t been touched, and in the later half of the game you should expect plenty of enemies and the return of the dreaded bottomless pits. The hack attempts to balance things in a way that feels fair, but also rewards memorisation for repeat play and speedrunning - without *as* harsh a penalty for not doing so.

A Hack that greatly improves the game

Reviewed By: Lucianoiscool2848 on 01 Oct 2023

This may sound too much but i hope they keep making mods for the other 2 games that overhaul the overall experience. but to be honest i would have liked a new method of entering the special stages like, getting 50 or 100 rings. but overall, great mod!
