Sonic: Into The Void is back again this year for the Sonic Hacking Contest, and I'm hoping that more people plus the judges will enjoy this year's submission a lot more than the previous year's, because I must admit, it was a bit of a steaming pile of poop, however, over the past year I've been working on a lot issues through the feedback from last years streams and from the SITV topic within Sonic Retro, and I think there is a vast improvement of my hack since it was shown last year, and looks more unique than ever.
- NEW Sonic sprite set! - Zones re-ordered. - Control mapping adjusted. - Smooth level layout on speed levels, and more related stuff. - NEW Palettes! - NEW Sprites, HUD, Title Cards. - Re-named Zones (again... for the last time, I prefer these zone names.) - Zone/Act Music altered. (Still using S3&K music, but I'm composing new music for a future release. See the videos below and you'll be able to hear some of the music that I've composed so far.) - NEW Special Stages! - Re-worked and improved bosses. (Yes the invisible hurt barrier on the Azure Hills Boss has been removed and changed, basically if you watch the videos, you'll see there are three outcomes; if you defeat Eggman before he disappears, you can open capsule A which also has a special stage ring next to it (if you collect 50 or more rings) and a little something extra. If Eggman disappears then you'll have to climb up to open capsule B, but there's no SS ring next to it, plus you don't get any points if you don't defeat the boss. However a final alternative is, if Eggman is defeated when above ground, and you've got 50 rings, the screen will allow you to move to the right and catch the SS Ring.)
MAKE SURE YOU OPEN THE CAPSULE AFTER THE BOSS BEFORE ENTERING THE SS RING! OR ELSE YOU WILL BE STUCK IN THE VOID... FOR ETERNITY! Well for the remainder of the 10 minutes...
Jump - Press A, B or C button to Jump. Spin Dash - Hold DOWN and tap the A, B or C button to rev it up! Homing Attack - Press the Jump button, and if Sonic is near an enemy or a monitor, press the B button to Homing Attack. Jump Dash - Press the Jump button, then press the A button to perform a Jump Dash, this is a good way to reach maximum speed instantly!
So there you go, hope you all enjoy this year's submission!
(NOTE: The first 3 zones and The Infinite Zone are complete, though in the future there may be tweaks to them, the other 3 zones have acts 1 & 2 complete, again tweaks in the future, but act 3's are playable and can be easily completed, but are unfinished.)
