Sonic 1 Back to South Island

By HyperSonic16

This is my first ever Rom Hack, So I hope you all enjoy! This hack includes new audio, new stage/special stage layouts, new sprites, SPINDASH!!!!!(of course a spindash XD), New level art, and a bunch of badniks(Thanks Robuttnik!) You all are probably expecting a story, so here it is, nice and sweet:

Its the Christmas season, and everyone is doing their thing. Tails and knuckles go off to celebrate Christmas on Angel Island. While this happens, Sonic decides to go back to South Island (hence the name of the hack), to celebrate and check up on the flickys. Eggman, strangely had a similar idea, but he plans to robotize the flickys, and rebuild his base. When Sonic arrives, he finds a bunch of badniks, and he immediately knows that Eggman is there. So sonic, being the hero he is, he travels out to stop eggmans plans.

Next time actually do something else after learning how to import bg art don't just leave it like it was on the guide on SSRG, too many people did that this year and it just looks plain bad. Which also makes it hard to distinguish the fg from the bg.

This is a great concept and would love to see the final product

A good start. I liked some stuff, like the fact that the layout edits don't look too ugly (at least you got the chunks right) and palettes are alright. I see you added the Penguin too, nice! The levels look too much like the original ones though...

Before I uploaded the rom, I overlooked the Sprite where sonic gets air, so it's not the same Sprite as in the snapshot.
