Sonic 2 Adventure Edition is a hack of Sonic 2 that recreates elements from Sonic Adventure. This demo allows you to play Emerald Hill as Sonic, and Wing Fortress as Knuckles, with no bosses.
Features: * The title screen's 1 Player/2 Player selection has been replaced by a choice between Adventure mode, where you play through levels in order, and Trial mode which allows you to select a single stage. * A character select screen is presented before beginning the level in Adventure mode or heading to the level select in Trial mode, which includes an animation of each character and their completion percentage. * The HUD has been redesigned, removing the score counter, expanding the minute counter to two digits, adding a centisecond counter, replacing the "RINGS" text with an image of a Ring, and removing the character's name from the life counter. * The end of level score tally now includes an Enemy Bonus, which counts any points you get during the level. * Rather than having the first act end with a signpost, you will instead be transported directly to the second act, making them function as one large level. * Each level has three missions to complete (more info in each character's section). Completing these objectives will earn you an Emblem. * Your collected Emblems, Best Score, Best Time, and Most Rings are saved and can be viewed in the Trial mode level select. * Clearing Emerald Hill Zone for the first time unlocks Trial mode, Tails as an AI partner for Sonic, and Knuckles as a playable character.
Sonic: * Sonic can no longer roll by pressing down. * Sonic's Spin Dash is now activated by holding B on the ground. It will charge power as you hold the button. * When the Spin Dash reaches maximum charge, Sonic will stand up and begin glowing blue. Release the B button to activate the Light Speed Attack or Light Speed Dash depending on the presence of Badniks or Monitors. * Press B while rolling to uncurl and begin running. * Pressing B in the air causes Sonic to perform a Jump Cancel, canceling all momentum and uncurling from ball mode. * Pressing A or C after jumping initiates a Homing Attack if there is a suitable target nearby, or a Jump Dash if there isn't. Sonic's missions involve simply reaching the end of the level. * Level C: Reach the end of the level. * Level B: Reach the end of the level with 50 or more Rings. * Level A: Reach the end of the level within a time limit (varies by level).
Knuckles: * When Knuckles is in the air and not in a ball, pressing A or C will cause him to curl into a ball. * When Knuckles is in the air and in a ball, pressing A or C will cause him to begin gliding. * When A or C are released while gliding, Knuckles will curl into a ball. * Pressing B while in the air and in a ball causes Knuckles to perform a Jump Cancel. * Pressing B while moving on the ground causes Knuckles to begin rolling. Knuckles' missions involve finding three red Chaos Emeralds scattered around the level. * Level C: Find the three Emeralds. * Level B: Find the three Emeralds with 50 or more Rings. * Level A: Find the three Emeralds within a time limit (varies by level).
