Pushing the absolute limits of the v4 Retro Engine, this project takes every visual aspect of Sonic 1 and asks the question: what if this was in Sonic Mania? Each of the six zones has been fully overhauled, featuring brand new artwork, effects, and animations. Besides visuals, the mod also adds gameplay elements from Sonic Mania, such as the beloved dropdash. Gameplay changes can be toggled off, allowing you to experience the original Sonic 1 with just the new graphics.
- Character animations fully ported over from Sonic Mania, with Mania-like smooth sprite rotation
- Fully smooth animations for badniks
- New decor for zones
- Visual and sound effects added to several objects
- Fight against Eggrobo when playing as Knuckles
- A brand new set of 'Encore' palettes which can be toggled
This is part one of four of a larger project which aims to 'Maniafy' every game included in Sonic Origins. The mod provided here however is meant for the standalone Sonic 1 decomp (new syntax).
