Sonic the Hedgehog - The Lost Worlds

Hack of Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Description:

Despite the hack name, this is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Genesis and not a hack of Sonic 1. The hack incorporates levels which were scrapped before the game was released. The levels are recreated using information gathered from either prototype ROM releases, scrapped data from the final ROM, information found in interviews, game screenshots, or concept art. Unlike other lost level restoration hacks this hack only incorporates the lost levels and no other levels are included aside from the prototype version of Casino Night Zone.

Levels

  • Dust Hill Zone: Based off the single mock-up image found in magazines.
  • Rock Zone: Based off info found in a piece of concept art.
  • Wood Zone: Based off the design found in a prototype.
  • Winter Zone: Based off info from an interview. Includes Christmas trees.
  • Hidden Palace Zone: Based off design found in a prototype. Uses the intended music found in the final version of the game.
  • Casino Night Zone: Based off the design found in a prototype. Uses the music found in the prototype.
  • Cyber City Zone: Based off a piece of concept art.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • No-Intro Name: Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (World) (Rev A)
  • ROM/File SHA-1: 8BCA5DCEF1AF3E00098666FD892DC1C2A76333F9

Probably the best of the "beta content" Sonic 2 hacks

Reviewed By: MathUser2929 on 09 Jun 2016

I really like the graphics of the cut Sonic 2 levels in this hack. The cut levels seem much closer to the concept art and all the other info that is known about them. Well, it’s a much more recent hack, so that explains that. I dig the Rock Zone too. I don’t know where he got those graphics from but they fit the game well.
