Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - Anniversary Edition - Pink Update

By SophieDude

Happy 30th Anniversary to Sonic the Hedgehog 2!

I bring you a smaller update this year to celebrate Sonic 2's 30th Anniversary.

Sonic 2 Anniversary Edition is an Enhancement Mod to Sonic 2.

Features this year include:

  • Amy Rose as a playable character - complete with a modifed version of her Sonic Advance Moveset.
  • Hard Mode is (hopefully) actually hard this year. I have removed rings and added more Badniks and Spikes
  • Eggman has dialogue when you defeat him.
  • 2 new features in the Options Menu have been added.
    • Amy Can Roll - This option allows Amy to roll like everyone else - in case you're like me and wish Amy could roll.
    • Roll Jump Lock - Normally, when you jump from a rolling state, you cannot move Sonic. if this option is turned on, you can control Sonic just like in Sonic CD or Mania.

Please Note: THE OPTION MENU HAS 5 PAGES . No Indicator

Features from Previous Years:

  • Easy/Hard Mode
  • Hill Top Zone is playable in 2P Mode. Highlight Emerlad Hill and Hold C and Push Start
  • Remix Music with the Original Soundtrack
  • The Game Gear and Master System Sonic 2 Soundtrack
  • Cyber City and Hidden Palace are playable. Cyber City needs to be turn on in the Options Menu
  • Each act have been given its own palette and soundtrack.

Amy's Moveset

  • A Button to use Hammer both in the air and on the ground
  • A Button + Down in the Air to do a downward twirl Attack
  • A Button While Crouching to do a high jump
  • Original MIDI Version of Chemical Plant Act 2 from - Created by Kentaro - Converted to SMPS and Edited by Me
  • A Really old version of Clownacy's Clone Driver
  • Mega PCM By Valdikcomper
  • Amy's Graphics and Some Code from Amy In Sonic 2 By E-122-Psi. Used with Primission. Also Graphics have been Edited by Me

in previous versions when playing with Tails the game crashed before reaching the death egg. does this still happen?

SophieDude @ 2022-10-10 12:11:51

Nope I fixed that bug

RageMaster06 @ 2022-10-10 18:00:33

Don't know if this is a glitch or not, but when you die and start the game again by pressing start on the character select in the options menu, you keep the chaos emeralds you gathered previously, where as when you start from the title screen directly you don't.

denilsonsa @ 2022-10-12 03:24:29

That's not a glitch. That's an expected behavior even in vanilla Sonic 2. Which is a great way to play as Super Sonic right from the beginning. (Think of it as an unnamed "New Game+" mode.)

IwishAmydidn'tsuck asmuch forone herTwinspindoesntworkonsprings. FortwoshecantHamJumpwhilemoving,becauseshecantcrouchwhilemoving, which would be a great way to stop on a dime itsashameshecantdoit. InSonicAdv. She can HamJump while moving without losing her speed, despite the fact the move requires you to crouch, which halts your speed. Thehitboxesonbothhergroundattackandhermeleeattackdontwork. Her jump movement is weird, if you jumpassoonasyouland, she'llberisingwhileinherfallingspriteanditsodd.

oh my god the five hundred twelve character limit is absolute garbage how are you supposed to say jack crap

anyway good hack tho

marcosmoutta @ 2022-10-11 02:25:45

Does Eggman say "fuck you Sonic"?

I am 100% sure I heard him say that

SophieDude @ 2022-10-11 07:22:56

Nah he says "Blast you Sonic"

Shadow Miron 40mb @ 2022-10-15 09:26:15

The hack is still great, though there is one thing, it stopped working on real hardware. I tried running it on mega drive (PAL) and genesis

SophieDude @ 2022-10-15 10:40:49

It does work on real hardware, Though I Believe it only works on Certain everdrives. This is most likely due to the bigger rom Size.

Shadow Miron 40mb @ 2022-10-16 01:11:47

I think the rom size has nothing to do with it. Since sonic delta (its size is 5 MB, while yours is 4.01 MB) starts and works fine
