"Tails has had enough! He was always the unimportant one, nothing but the annoying doormat standing in Sonic's shadow. Time for revenge!"

(If there was an award for the worst description, I would win it without competition.)



The idea of this hack is to use the Debug Mode as an actual part of the game play. However, the ability to teleport has been removed. Also, all items have been deleted from the debug list... except for one.


And not just one type of spikes. The diversity of these three-set needles adds anything from regular speed boosting and bouncy to fragile and exploding. The SpikeDebug™ Mode's great variety of pain bringers leaves no hedgehog's desires in the dirt! Only their blood. (That wasn't a joke. This hack contains blood.)



A small hack that was originally intended to become a full-fledged puzzle platformer by the time the contest hit, but due to technical issues and many time constraints never made it past the first few test milestones. For the contest, those few assets have been taken and reordered in a short, albeit (hopefully) polished way.

There is no real game here, just a couple of demonstrating concept levels as well as an intro cutscene. The only reason why I decided to submit it anyway was because a lot of people told me to, saying that there's nothing to lose, really. But I hope you'll enjoy this short experience nonetheless!

(Partially inspired by whoisthisgit's "Tails Abuse Debug" series, see video below.)



With Sonic:
B, while on the ground: Enter SpikeDebug™ Mode (and leave Sonic waiting where he was)
C + A: Jump. Duh. Should I also explain what the D-Pad does? Yes. Yes I should.

In SpikeDebug™ Mode:
D-Pad: Move around (in an 8-pixel grid)
C: Place a spike / remove spike(s) when hovering over them
B: Leave SpikeDebug™ Mode (and return back to Sonic)
Hold A + Press Left/Right: Cycle through spikes

A, while game is paused: Return to stage select (you will need this!)
A, on stage select: Toggle DevMode (disabled by default; only kept in because otherwise some things are unable to be done and you can get stuck sometimes)

When DevMode is enabled:
B, anywhere and not just ground: Enter SpikeDebug™ Mode
Hold A + Press B, when in SpikeDebug™ Mode: Leave SpikeDebug™ Mode (and teleport Sonic to that location)


[00:41:30] Selbi: hmm, I'm not sure if that description is fine. sounds incredibly cheesy to me.
[00:41:32] Selbi: "Tails has had enough! He was always the unimportant one, nothing but the annoying doormat standing in Sonic's shadow. Time for revenge!"
[00:41:48] Lucky Roll: nah I don't think this description's bad actually... but it DOES sound like the summary to a gay bdsm porn
[00:41:59] Selbi: ...okay. that is totally going into the page description.
[00:42:11] Selbi: by the way, here's the entry page to the hack. *screenshot* what do you think?
[00:43:52] Lucky Roll: "Hedgehog Abuse Simulator"
[00:43:54] Lucky Roll: really
[00:43:58] Selbi: yep
[00:44:07] Lucky Roll: dude are you really sure you are not into gay bdsm?
