Metal Sonic Hyperdrive (2011)

Hack of Sonic the Hedgehog

Description:

A full hack of Sonic the Hedgehog 1, with tons of features, brand new levels, playable characters, Sonic CD style gameplay (minus the extended camera), and more. I created this Sonic the hedgehog hack back in October 31, 2011 (Halloween), everything has been changed and feels like a completely new game.

Changes since Hyperdrive v1.0:

  • Improved level designs and layouts
  • Extreme mode added
  • Extra characters have been updated
  • More bugfixes
  • A few soundtracks has been changed
  • Improved wall jump physics
  • etc

Note: Patch to clean Sonic 1 ROM (REV00, the one with no moving clouds) with “.bin” as the extension or else, it may not work. The patch is in XDelta format due to shifted data which resulted in a IPS patch with copyrighted data in it.

For a later version of the hack see THIS link.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • No-Intro Name: Sonic The Hedgehog (USA, Europe)
  • (No-Intro version 20130710-102701)
  • ROM/File SHA-1: 6DDB7DE1E17E7F6CDB88927BD906352030DAA194
  • Sonic The Hedgehog (W) (REV00) [!]

A great hack

Reviewed By: MathUser2929 on 29 Nov 2012

Overall this is a great hack. It really overhauls the original game and the new graphics and gameplay make it feel quite different from Sonic 1. There is a healthy amount of playable characters and the new music makes the game feel fresh. Highly recommended.
