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

Prototype levels - and they are interesting

Reviewed By: diablo666 on 10 Oct 2020

I can see how they tried to recreate levels that were not included in the original. Did you succeed? Mostly - interesting and unusual, original in their own way. I passed though not from 1 time, but still returned to them. They are quite neat, especially surprised by the credits at the end. But there is a minus that people noticed: “they differ from the classic levels.”Well, in a sense - there is such a thing, but you should not find fault with this little thing. This is an “extension from romhacker’s view”, so I don’t see this as a еrror. Who wants to try these unique levels.
