Sonic1 Spike Bug Fix & Spindash

Hack of Sonic the Hedgehog

Description:

This is a hack which fixes the spike bug and also implements a near perfect rendition of the spin dash. There is an animation while doing the spin dash like in the later games. The only thing missing is the dust underneath.

Special thanks to Lightning & FraGag for their guides on how to implement this.

For some reason it doesn’t like opening in a level editor, I don’t know why. However, if you decompress the original Sonic 1 and decompress this ROM, you can open those decompressed original Sonic 1 files, then after you edit them, recompress them into the edit… I think.

The patch is in xdelta format due to copyrighted data being part of the original IPS patch.

Very good hack

Reviewed By: MathUser2929 on 06 Jun 2016

While the Spindash lacks dust it is a minor issue and adds a big feature to it. That more than makes up for a small flaw. While the Spindash feature complete with dust has been worked into other hacks that have been released they were full on hacks that change so many features it’s not the same game anymore. This hack scores points for it’s simplicity. If you only want to add Spindash to the original game then this is your hack.
