An Ordinary Sonic ROM Hack

By Cinossu

A completely ordinary Sonic ROM hack, where nothing interesting happens at all. Nope. Nothing at all..

.. yeah right. It's time to P̣͇̽̓ͮr͎̞̗̫͚̠ͤ̀ͨ͑̃̅̾ͅa̢̤̤͔̞̠̒ͬ̍̃̌ͫ̇i͕͈͋̈͘s̟͎̘̗̙̻͆ͅe͕̭̫̦̖͆͌̓ͪͨ ̛̭̮̩̾ͧ̋̓͑̐̚H̉҉̥̣͙ȉ͕ͧͩ̈́ͯ̿̌m̭̻͚̟͉̹̊.̩̭̦̰̌͋̔͐ͧ͐̚͟

The challenge of this ROM hack is to get through each act successfully, without being caught by H̉҉̥̣͙ȉ͕ͧͩ̈́ͯ̿̌m̭̻͚̟͉̹̊ in the process. After the first 12½ seconds of every level you will be warped to an alternate dimension where rings work in reverse, badniks are invincible and, if you stay for too long, H̰͚͙̫͔̳͙ͦͨ͊͂ͬe̳̤̻̳͉̼̒ will get you. The only way out is to break a monitor in this warped dimension, whereupon you will be sent back to whence you came. However, after your first warp and return, the time until your next warp is uncertain. It could be 20 seconds, it could be in 3. Just be sure to return before the end of the level, because there's no escape until you do.

From the title screen you can choose to start straight from Green Hill Zone and go through the whole ROM hack, or be taken to the Zone Selection screen. From here, you can choose any of the zones available and see your best scores from each act that you have previously played. Score works as normal in this ROM hack, except when you are trying not to be caught by H̉҉̥̣͙ȉ͕ͧͩ̈́ͯ̿̌m̭̻͚̟͉̹̊ your score will be reducing every second until you manage to escape.

Green Hill Zone may seem easy when you start but don't let it lull you into a false sense of security. From Marble Zone onwards the challenge increases steeply. The number of monitors already in the original Sonic the Hedgehog would not be enough to get you through alive so more have been added along the way to make it at least possible to beat.. but not enough to make it simple. Be prepared for close calls, optimising your routes, double-backing on yourself, and finding and relying on secret areas you probably never knew existed in the first place. Bosses present an additional challenge, as there is no break in the warping on these. You will find the warped Dr. Eggman a formidable foe, one that seems impossible to defeat. If you hit him enough times you may get lucky enough for a monitor to drop from his flying vehicle and return.. but remember to be quick about it. H̰͚͙̫͔̳͙ͦͨ͊͂ͬe̳̤̻̳͉̼̒ is always after you there.

Unfortunately, I was not able to complete this ROM hack to its end in time for this contest, and only Green Hill Zone through to Labyrinth Zone are available to play. Labyrinth Zone itself is also still a little buggy, but it is beatable (even if escaping H̉҉̥̣͙ȉ͕ͧͩ̈́ͯ̿̌m̭̻͚̟͉̹̊ on the boss seems impossible for the first twenty or so attempts).

Enjoy, and I hope you remember where all those monitors are because otherwise H̰͚͙̫͔̳͙ͦͨ͊͂ͬe̳̤̻̳͉̼̒ will get you, and you will forever P̣͇̽̓ͮr͎̞̗̫͚̠ͤ̀ͨ͑̃̅̾ͅa̢̤̤͔̞̠̒ͬ̍̃̌ͫ̇i͕͈͋̈͘s̟͎̘̗̙̻͆ͅe͕̭̫̦̖͆͌̓ͪͨ ̛̭̮̩̾ͧ̋̓͑̐̚H̉҉̥̣͙ȉ͕ͧͩ̈́ͯ̿̌m̭̻͚̟͉̹̊.

I love this game and it looks better than the original sonic.exe game crimson the bat made

Is this a hack or a fan game.? It seams like they copied Sonic.exe and this might confuse some people. It is creapy even thought you nevel say satin as you just say him or he.

Anything that makes the Sonic 1 experience fresh is alright by me. Hilarious and shit scary at the same time. Although I'd like to know why the fuck did "him" still get me after defeating Robotnik in LZ?

Great stuff! You are an evil cunt, Cinossu.

Definitely deserves a top 3 spot. Also, the jump scare when you Game Over made me pretty much shit myself. Great hack.

Something that bothers me though is that you can't pick a specific act to start from; you can only start at the Act 1 from any zone.
For example, I reached Marble Act 3 and got a Game Over there. I gotta play through Acts 1 and 2 again to get there xD

I wonder what the ending and credits will be like when the full version is done. I bet the credits will be in the same style as S1 Omochao Edition's, unless Cinossu has something better planned for it...

Hey guys; the bugs found are due to me stupidly forgetting to replace the control sounds for speed shoes and such for the new sound driver I have in here; I'll release an fixed update after the contest.

This is pure genius, I enjoyed trying not to get killed, and I didn't look at screenshots, so what was shown in the fourth one took me by surprise! (In a hilarious kinda way.) I'm so going to scare the crap out of my cousin with this thing.

I know this was meant to be scary but Good lord this had me in tears of laughter after playing this. Just Brilliance at it's finest! :)

Now this is quite an interesting idea for a hack, and you pulled it off perfectly!

I like it A LOT, sadly I found some annoying bugs :(

@Redhotsonic: Thats strange, when i played it, it didn't do that, though the music froze whenever I die.

redhotsonic (Posted at 21:50:08 12-08-2013)
I have managed to trigger a bad bug. For some reason, I got to a point where GHZ music just forever-ed played. Didn't matter if you warped back or forth, level restarted, moved onto next level, etc, the music just played indefinitely. No SFX's either.

system1500 (Posted at 21:50:03 12-08-2013)
I love this hack so much! My vote goes for this hack!

I only have one problem with this hack... Why does Sonic.exe look like he's foaming at the mouth?
