Sonic The Hedgehog 1: Hold Right To Win Edition

By Shade Vortex

I'm Shade Vortex, the person who made this romhack. I used SonLVL to edit the level layouts, and due to having no programming knowledge whatsoever, I accomplished this hack merely by working within the limitations of the game and the editor, and tried to accomplish something not intended by the games' developers.

This means that this hack has graphical glitches and I sometimes have to do things in ways that don't really "make sense" just to accomplish the goal of making it possible to beat Sonic 1 only by holding right.

You're going to need an Emulator like Kega Fusion to play this hack (I have not tested it on actual hardware or any other emulators, so no guarantees on it working on anything else). This hack is a follow-up to a hack that I did of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 on April 1st, 2012. You can find a release trailer and a download for that hack here on YouTube:

Honestly in some ways I think the original is better because I put more effort into implementing level gimmicks like springs, gears, conveyor belts and things like that. There's less of that here... But there are alternate paths in Starlight Zone (one of my favorite zones), so in a way I've also made improvements. Of course, you have to not hold right to find those paths... but the point is you can beat the game the intended way too- only holding right.

Anyways, that's enough exposition. Enjoy this playful poking-fun at a commonly made-fun of exaggeration with Sonic the Hedgehog games' level design. This is the long-awaited prequel to the April Fools hack I made of Sonic The Hedgehog 2, two years ago.
