Fast Facts on Motobug the Badnik in Sonic the Hedgehog

Last Release: June 19, 2010
System: Sega Mega Drive/Genesis
Original Game: Sonic the Hedgehog (16-bit)
Credits: Polygon Jim

Motobug the Badnik in Sonic the Hedgehog (aka Motobug in Sonic 1) is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Mega Drive, by Polygon Jim. As its title suggests, in this hack the main character Sonic the Hedgehog is replaced by Motobug, one of Dr. Robotnik's badniks.

So far, some of Sonic's main sprites and animations have been replaced by those of Motobug, Motobug's speed has been decreased (except when powered-up by a Speed Shoes monitor, which are more numerous), and the sprites of Roller badniks in Spring Yard Zone have been replaced by those of Sonic (referencing a common interpretation by fans that Roller is a robotic impersonation of Sonic, something that officially appeared in later games in the form of Metal Sonic and various others).

Of the first release, Polygon Jim stated that he had only tested and confirmed Green Hill Zone (Acts 1-3) for completability. However, upon testing, Katelynn and RGamer2009 reported that other Acts are completable, including:
