is a hack by ColinC10
for the Sega Genesis
, which contains elements from both Sonic the Hedgehog
and Sonic the Hedgehog 2
, combined into 40 mini-levels. By the words of ColinC10 himself, «no rings, lives, time limits or bosses, just virtual-themed artwork and music by Anamanaguchi». The player has to find (and reach!) the exit in each of those levels, which usually involve a good knowledge of Sonic's physics and may require the player to solve a puzzle and do the right moves at the right time. Except for the last level, which is quite long and contains elements from all the previous levels, the other 39 levels are all revolve around a specific theme, such as jumping or platforming, or the badniks involved (e.g. in the "debugging" level all the badniks are bugs). There are no ranks and no ending screens: beating a level simply adds a star next to its name in the level select ("filesystem") menu, which is saved into SRAM
to resume playing at a later time.
This hack makes use of the bank switching technique to break the "classic" limit of 4 megabytes and reach 6, necessary to store the huge amount of music in PCM
format. Because of this, support in various emulator might vary (in particular the sound isn't quite right in Gens
), and therefore Kega Fusion
A star denotes a complete level...
... and a lack of a star denotes a level to be completed
