Sonic 2: Return of Shadow

By Team OhJeez

This is a hack based if the original Sonic 2, that has been in the works for quite some time. It includes 4 characters to choose from all with different moves that fit them. Every level in this demo has had a background change, along with new music in each act. Layout changes (Knuckles has some of his own) and much more...

Story: Shadow is back and teams up with Robotnik... Seriously what else do you want?

Special moves and how to use...

Moves for Sonic:

Shield moves: Double Jump Spark, Fireball, Bubble Bounce, Homing attack. For lightning shield, Fire Shield, Bubble Bounce, press A, B, or C while in the air, Yellow Shield, press A,B, or C while in the air by an object to homing attack.
Insta-shield: Press A, or C while in the air without a shield, it will protect Sonic for a quick second against attacks.
Super Peelout: Hold up and hold A, B, or C to rev it up.
Ground Pound/Plus Spin: Hold B while jumping to smack to the ground, when ground is hit hold forward to spindash forward.

Moves for Tails:

Flight: Jump and press A, or C to gain height.
Aerial Attack: Jump and press B, works like the Sonic Battle aerial tails attack.

Moves for Knuckles:

Glide: Jump and Hold A, or C, works like the Adventure Series.
Drill Claw: While gliding, Hold B while still holding A or C.
Dig: When in Drill Claw once Knuckles hits the ground he will dig underground and look for an item, he is invulnerable at this time, works on walls too.

Tails Tag Team: When having Tails as sidekick, jump and press up for him to start flying, once the main character is attached you can also control Tails, press B for the main character to jump off and A for tails to fling you forward. If the main character is Tails, if Sonic/Knuckles attaches to him you can fling them forward with the same button. At this time you can only ascend with the C button.
(IMPORTANT!) Special Ramp/Spring Tricks: When In falling animation from spring or ramp, press up to gain a burst of speed up, characters movement will be locked until in falling animation, press a direction and B to go forward, they wont be able to move until they hit the ground, press B and no direction to move backwards, and press down to gain speed down, and press C to go into a roll.
