Hi everybody! Sonic 2: Archives is a hack of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 that restores unused conceptions, uses concept arts, prototypes, and early/unused stuff and etc.
For the first: Tails is brown because of leaked early Tails sprite. More info here.
At this moment is restoring of "Present" timeline and that zones:
- Emerald Hill
- Ocean Wind (Still WIP)
- Jungle Woods (aka Secret Woods, aka Wood Zone)
- Sand Shower (aka Dust Hill, aka that heckin' Desert Zone with few names)
- Metropolis Zone
- Different graphics and music for each act
- New zones (Ocean Wind, Woods, Sand Shower)
- Zones looks closer to their earlier iterations
- New music
- Music changes (made closer to Masa demos and betas)
- New bosses
- Some Sonic sprites and Tails sprites redrawing
- New gameplay features (wall recoil, Tails flying and more!)
- Title screen
- Island map (like in Super Mario world)
- Sonic and Tails screen
- New sega and sound test screens by TheBlad768
I hope you will enjoy this hack! We've made a lot of work to send it here.
Also feel free to send us your complaints and suggestions here in the comments, or on the forums Sonic Retro and SSRG.
