Luigi took a wrong warp and landed straight into Sonic 1!

I attempted to give him as much of a Luigi feel as I could, though there might be some physics changes in the future.


  • Green Missile: Up + B (couldn't add rng to it)
  • High Jump: A
  • Ground Pound: Down in air
  • Swim: A/B/C Underwater (duh)
  • Faster Swim/Exit water: Up + A/B/C Underwater


  • There's a bug where you can clip through springs by holding Down. Shouldn't affect gameplay too much. Also, if you ever have trouble beating a level, sit still for a while, you might beat the level as if it was absolutely nothing ;).
