Strike Dash in Sonic 2

Hack of Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Description:

This is a hack which adds the Strike Dash in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Sega Master System. The Strike Dash is a move in some 8-bit Sonic games in which Sonic revs up while standing in place and takes off with a burst of speed with a short invincibility window at first. The move is performed in this hack by holding up and pressing button 2. The move appeared in other Sonic games under the name Super-Peel Out but did not have a invincibility window at the start of the move.

Unlike in the other games there is no sound played when revving up.

Tested on the 1.0 SMS ROM.

Who needs Spin Dash when you've got Strike Dash?

Reviewed By: GodNeptune on 26 Oct 2015

Great job on this. Sonic 2 always felt like it was missing the Spin Dash of its higher profile cousin, but this fills that void quite well. It really speeds up the game, and by pressing down after using the Strike Dash, it’s almost like a pseudo-Spin Dash, since you’re rolling on the ground at high speed when you do so. While some may be upset at the lack of rev noises and build up to letting loose, this isn’t about looking flashy, it’s about function, and it certainly succeeds at that. I’d recommend playing this hack over the original anyday.
