SONIC DEBUT

By MCTravisYT

* SONIC DEBUT *

This is a ROM hack stylized within Sonic 1's earlier stages, adding in prototype & concept material.

Features:

  • Sonic doesn't jump as he'd usually do. You'd have to press the jump button twice in order to go into a rolling state.
  • Health is no longer tied to rings (which also explains the lack of them). Instead, there's a health counter. Once it's 0, you lose a life.
  • Music stylized as earlier prototype versions
  • New, more linear level layouts
  • Sonic's sprites have been entirely redone to fit within the prototype style of the hack

Issues:

  • The background for GHZ may break a bit (mostly on the bottom part). The parallax couldn't be finished in time.
  • The title screen may bug out for a moment.
  • There may be some flickering issues here and there. This depends on the emulator you're using.

This demo will only include Green Hill Zone.

Note: This is NOT a beta remake or interpretation.
