A side project (Sonic Hell) cancelled

Hello there. It is i, Sonikchan with a new project in the works. I want to talk about “Kaizo Sonic” A fan hack that is fun but hard. Well, the game has no name yet.

So the Hack I am working on is mainly for 2 people HyperSonic7701 and MastaKirby as a way to say thanks for being some awesome friends, I doubt they feel the same way. If they do, then yay. If not, it’s fine. lol

So you may say “What the point of this Sonic 1 hack you are making?” To answer that. Around 2010, I did plan on making another hack with a better set of tools and new plans, however, this was during the summer and I had school, drama to deal with, which in the end just made me quit working on the hack altogether.

I was young so I didn’t get much done in terms of hacking. I gave sonic 1 a few more tries. In 2016, I made a rom where you could spin dash, problem being is that spin dash would work but sound would get overridden or the music would stop.

The other try was Level layout and that went fine…But For some reason, The files got deleted and I was left with nothing, Granted I didn’t get very far but that still was enough to make me stop.

But when MastaKirby was playing my old hack, Sonic Beta. It was fun to see other people play my hack and try to figure out where to go or fall for traps.











Things to expect to come in the hack

6 New Special Stages

New level Layout

Longer levels

Working Eggman boxes (May or may not add this in.)

Level Select has been changed (Up, Down,Left,Right no longer works)

Spin dash will not be added, As it may / will be easy to break some levels

Spike bug will be left in.

Bosses will be harder

There will be a ton of traps

The main idea is to give Sonic 1, my take on the game, add some things and mess with the minds of Sonic players or runners

It will be a fun project to do and once that is done, I have plans to work on Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 but…Those are going to be way, way, way down the line. I plan to work on making fan games. Sonic 2 & 3 won’t be forgotten but they are not my main thing I want to work on.

I want to say that I will not ask for beta testers, as I want this hack to make people feel like they’re playing a new Sonic 1. I do have plans on remaking my hacks in Game Maker which will be fun to do

But that’s all I want to say on this side project. This will or may be my last Sonic 1 hack depends on how things go. I may make a mini hack that focus only on special stages but I will have to see after.

Thanks for reading~
