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.

Going back to Sonic 1 after you’ve played Sonic 2 is painful. Once you’ve played with the spin dash, you can’t go back. There are 2 spin dash hacks on this site, but the other one does not add the graphics. Go with this one. As a bonus, you’ll get the spike bug fixed too.

This was tested on Picodrive, Kega Fusion, and the Retroarch Core Genesis Plus GX. It worked perfectly on all of them, and is now loaded on my SNES Classic.
