|System: Sega Mega Drive|
|Original game: Sonic the Hedgehog (16-bit)|
Sonic 1 Alt is a layout hack of Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Mega Drive by Ell678. It is notable for sporting barely any ASM edits, with the main focus being on the level layouts. Initial response to the new layouts was positive, though the altered palettes were less well received and so have been reverted for the next release.
- All new layouts for every Act, along with all special stages.
- Speed cap removed from the air and ground, allowing Sonic to move faster than in Sonic 1.
- Sonic 1's spike damage behavior is left intact, due to it being a unique feature of that game.
Sonic 1 Alt is aimed at a release date of July 2010. The only release so far is a demo of the first three zones, available below. Please note the palettes have since been restored to those of the original game, and so this is unrepresentative of the current state of the hack.
Sonic 1 Alt was released on the July 30th, 2010. This version has all new layouts for every act, and all special stages have been edited. No further development shall take place.
