Hack of Sonic the Hedgehog

Description:

This is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis. It adds some features to improve the game without altering the original levels. Features include:

  • Multiple characters.
  • New zone title/results font based on Sonic 3 title/results font.
  • Some art from Sonic 3, such as the Sonic and Tails sprites, monitors etc.
  • Spike damage behavior changed to that of Sonic 2.
  • Timer ends after defeating a boss instead of after opening egg prison.
  • The ability to carry leftover rings into the next act.
  • Rebound after running into a wall at high speed.
  • New and remixed music.

The patch is in xdelta format due to shifted data resulting in IPS patches containing original code. The ROM should be in BIN format.

A unstable version 2 was leaked and the author has since allowed it to be shared openly. It can be found here.

Outdated, but interesting

Reviewed By: diablo666 on 30 Jan 2022

Outdated, but interesting… Why is that? The reasons are weighty. The first of them: A more recent version is on the “Sonic Retro” website in the “hacks” section. Second: fewer changes.

However, I have touched this version - so let’s start with it.

The hack is interesting because it partially replaces the graphics in the game, makes characters “with unique abilities”, completely redesigned music and slightly redesigned gameplay, which at that time fueled interest in this. But, there are no changes in levels, which is a pity.

Why can I recommend it? The uniqueness of each character. They do not copy each other, which happens in hacks of that time and, if you think about it, this is a kind of EASY MODE. So to get acquainted with the original game (or with the version of Android 2013)

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
