Sonic 3 Complete

Hack of Sonic 3 & Knuckles


This is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. It is a new feature, Sonic 3-ification, and bugfix patch. The game has been altered to restore changes made to Sonic 3 levels so the levels play and sound like they did in Sonic 3. There is also a game selection screen allowing for Sonic 3 Alone, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Blue Sphere to be played. Several bugs have been fixed and there is a option screen to reverse some changes made. The hack can be modified further with the included ips patches.

Cheat codes can be found in the read me. It is encouraged to read the readme as it has an exhaustive list of changes made in this hack.

The patch is in xdelta format due to shifted data resulting in IPS patches containing original code. Make sure to use the Sonic and Knuckles & Sonic 3 ROM which is about 4,096 kb in size. The ROM should be in BIN format.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Sonic and Knuckles & Sonic 3 (JUE) [!].bin

It’s very hard to do a custom version and leave everyone happy, specially the more changes you add to the mix. But from any standing point, this Sonic 3 Complete leaves very little if nothing to be desired as it comes fully customizable. If something doesn’t convince you, you can change it! and all thanks to the options menu:

First, you can boot the game as you wish: Sonic 3 standalone, Sonic & Knuckles, Blue Spheres, Sonic Complete…

Second, you can make a custom experience from gameplay to music. You can choose the music that plays, how the music resets, how the AI behaves, S&K controls…

And third, there are some extras not available before on the megadrive as the difficulty levels (previously only in the Sonic Jam compilation), fixed bugs, prototype stuff and extra controls using the six buttons pad.

I am myself a nitpicky person, specially with things that I like and know very well, and I can’t think of anything I could miss from the original games. And I can’t think of any either to improve.
