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

Unique Worlds!

Reviewed By: Mother Kojiro on 21 Dec 2021

The level design can be a bit frustrating in this one, and it’s a bit stingy with checkpoints (and therefore chances to grab the Chaos Emeralds), but I do think it’s worthwhile overall. There are some zones you’ll see in other hacks, but if nothing else, Rock Zone is worth the price of admission all on its own; it’s this burning horror of blood red lava, charred brown dust, and a blazing sunset behind it all. Dust Hill, Wood, and Hidden Palace Zones are all neat, too, even if other hacks also have them.
