Sonic 1: Painto Edition 2 (or simply Sonic: Painto Edition 2) is a modification of Sonic the Hedgehog (16-bit), and the first part of the Paintifisation project, made by Painto maniak. The hack contains many features, and is named 'Painto Edition 2' to separate itself from Painto maniak's previous hack; Sonic: Painto Edition (later renamed Sonic: Christmas Island).


Version 1.0

  • Each zone has a hub world, from which all three acts can be accessed via 'act monitors'
  • Level visuals change to reflect a certain time of day, depending on the player's progress
  • Bosses are located in their respective zone's hub world, and are only available after the clearing of all three acts of the zone
  • Final boss is available only after passing all eighteen acts
  • Layout and palette edit in levels
  • Some custom art
  • Super Sonic available after obtaining all Chaos Emeralds
  • HUD's time counter counts down to a Time Over

Version 2.0 (Sonic Hacking Contest 2014)

  • A centralised hub world known as The Main Zone. From it, any of the seven zones can be accessed through Giant Rings. There is also a Skill Shop present, from which the player can acquire skills using the rings they've collected
  • Title screen menu, not unlike that seen in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (16-bit), featuring save options and access to the Sound Test menu
  • Each zone has a hub world, where the player can enter one of the zone's acts, return to The Main Zone, save their progress, or fight the zone's boss
  • New zones, including Bridge Zone and Cheese Cave Zone.
  • New music (some ported, some custom)
  • Modified bosses

Version 3.0

  • New Sound Test menu
  • Special Stage Rings, working like in Sonic 3 & Knuckles. There is one ring per act, allowing nine opportunities to get the six Chaos Emeralds. They also act as checkpoints
  • New boss for Bridge Zone
  • New art for Green Garden Zone, and some layout modifications
