    Added the Readme from the download ZIP and corrected patching information. ROM checksums did not match the listed ROM -- may have been post-patching checksums at some point, as they do not appear in any database. I've added the correct info for the clean ROM.

Sonic 1 and 2

Hack of Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Description:

This is a hack for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Sega Genesis. It combines the levels of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 to make one large game. Special stages from both games are accessible and are entered via each game’s special stage original entry method. This means Giant rings at the end of stages when retaining 50 rings in Sonic 1 and jumping into a circle of stars after passing checkpoints with enough rings in Sonic 2. There are 6 Chaos Emeralds in the Sonic 1 special stages and 7 in the Sonic 2 special stages. Super Sonic is not available until all Chaos Emeralds are obtained from both kinds of special stages. Progress is saved automatically to SRAM.

Pressing Start and the A button while playing any stage will return the player to the title screen. Also, level select is available by holding A button then pressing Start at the title screen.

Arena mode is playable which has time challenges that can be completed to increase the players ranking. Higher rankings are obtainable in harder levels and have shorter time limits.

Some features of this game were later incorporated in flamewing’s Sonic Classic Heroes hack.

The patch is in xdelta format due to shifted data resulting in IPS patches containing original code. The ROM should be in BIN format.

Sonic Classic Heroes 1.0

Reviewed By: MathUser2929 on 09 Jun 2016

This is the precursor to Sonic Classic Heroes. For it’s time this was a great hack. I recommend it if you want a straight up compilation of Sonic 1 and 2 put together ala Sonic 3K. The games connect to each other which makes it feel like one long game. Give it a try if you don’t need all the extra characters and features of Sonic Classic Heroes.
