Untitled Sonic 1 Hack

By jubbalub


After seeing the reactions my Untitled Sonic 1 Hack got at SHC2015 (spoiler: they weren't very good) I took it upon myself to improve the hack as best I can. Hopefully it's actually fun this time around.

OBLIGATORY STORY
After Robotnik's defeat in Sonic 1, he was absolutely humiliated. Defeated by a 3-foot-tall blue hedgehog, of all things! However, he had a solution - in the rubble that was once Scrap Brain Zone, he found one of his old inventions... and a single Chaos Emerald. He used the miraculously-still-working machine combined with the Emerald's power to reset the world to before Sonic traveled to South Island, with a few differences. Robotnik, retaining all his knowledge, set out to conquer South Island once again. And this time, he wouldn't make the same mistakes.

FEATURES
4 complete zone, and one two-act zone
New level layouts, palettes, music, and art
New moves
New monitors
Removed speed cap
A few other miscellaneous edits

NEW MOVES
Down+A/B/C = Sonic 2 Spindash
A while in midiar = short double jump
B/C while in midiar = jump dash

ZONES
SHINING SHORE ZONE
The smell of fresh grass fills the air as Sonic speeds by in this bright and cheery landscape. Bounce on springs but not on spikes - ouch!
DREAM DRAIN ZONE
A swirling vortex fills the sky in this alien area, filled with some sort of... liquid. Whatever it is, it hurts!
CURSED CASINO ZONE
Once a bustling city full of life, this grim area has been haunted by the spirits of the dead. Spooky!
LUSTER LABYRINTH ZONE
These ancient ruins have long been protected by the lingering chaos energy. The bricks seem to give off a prismatic shimmer, and the magical water prevents you from drowning. Your double jump will be of great use here!
STERLING STREET ZONE
???
ROBO REACTOR ZONE
Robotnik's base of operations. After his defeat in Scrap Brain, he took it upon himself to make his new hideout as cruel and soul-crushing as possible.
SHINY SECRET ZONE
The calm before the storm. Collect as many rings and lives as you can, as the final encounter with Robotnik will be very unforgiving.

I really enjoyed this hack. Although in DDZ Act 3, I fell off a mandatory platform and I couldn't progress any further. I have gotten stuck on 3 occasions and there aren't many checkpoints. Other than that, the stages are really fun and the hack is great!
