Sonic 1 Dragon Edition is a ROM hack of Sonic the Hedgehog made by Dragon Wolf Leo and BinBowie, which adds many elements to the game.

Finished Levels

  • Hub World
  • Hydro Base Zone
  • Melon Park Zone (art might be tweaked)

New Features

  • A hub world, where you can access levels. You can see how many chaos emeralds you have collected, and revisit levels that you failed to collect an emerald. You can return to the hub world by pressing A when paused.
  • Original zones with original/remixed music.
  • Harmonizing sound effects, which can be turned off in settings.
  • Special stages have a turning mechanic and are also zone specific. The turning mechanic can be turned off in settings.
  • New elemental shields with different behaviors, such as the atomic shield, which transforms badniks into monitors and gives you an airborne spindash move.
  • Atomic shield, which transforms badniks into ring monitors and gives a midair spindash. Protection from energy bullets and electricity.
  • Metal shield, which protects you from spikes and Robotnik monitors. Allows you to break smashable walls on contact. Gives a downward dash ability.
  • Ice shield, which protects you from ice attacks, ice physics, conveyor belt movement, and wind. Reduces water slowdown. Gives you 5 small jumps.
  • Bubble shield, which allows underwater breathing. Gives a bouncing ability.
  • Fire shield, which protects you from fire and lava. Also destroys badniks in your path if you are running fast enough. Gives a jump dash ability.
  • Chainable invincibility, which extends your invincibility when you hit a badnik.
  • Once collecting all 7 emeralds and 50 rings, press A and C to turn into Super Sonic PS:

As the game only has 2 phases, and per phase, it is only possible to collect 1 emerald from the chaos. So if you collect the first two, the game will give you a chance to pick up the other 5 emeralds, to test Super Sonic (INCREDIBLY unfinished)
