Sonic 1 Special Version is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog (16-bit) for the Sega Mega Drive created by EditChris. It is functionally similar to Sonic the Hedgehog Megamix, featuring new visuals, layouts, character abilities, and music from various games.



  • Added new menus.
  • New both normal and Special Stage levels.
  • New music (different per act).
  • Minor edits on bosses (only more hits).
  • New palletes and designs.
  • Added "Original Mode", which allows the player to play the original Sonic 1 with some fixes and optimizations, also including Sonic's new abilities.


Each version of the hack can be downloaded at EditChris's Official Webpage.
