This is my first hack. I recolored Sonic, changed the music, and created my own zone. I hope you like what I have so far

Known bugs:
The true background won't work, so I'm just using the sky background.
Most rings won't appear. You have to rely on monitors.
No lava.

You color choices seem odd at best, but I'll be sure to give this a try.

While it seems like you might have something going with the level art, those giant, garish blocks of nuclear green completely throw it all out of the window. Might wanna find a better choice for those.

You've got a good idea going on here, but those palettes are horrible. It wouldn't take much to make them contrast less than what you've got there. I'll possibly make an example later, but try playing around to see if you can get something more visibly appealing.

It also wouldn't hurt to have posted those screenshots at 320x224, would it?

Maybe he's colorblind... I mean, really.

Colour blind? That's no excuse, really though, I know one other individual with brilliant art skills who's colour blind around here. (I'm not just saying that) [Edit: not talking about myself here either]

The colours are very weird and some are slightly off-putting, that sky though is cool, dithering is good, and the colours work for those clouds too. But really, there's nothing more I can say that hasn't been said:

Mainly that. Good luck though.

It's unique? Increase the amount of colors that make up each object though. Everything seems to be made up of 2 colors or less.

Ugly and gay.

What a fan-fucking-tastic post! I sure am glad we have valuable members such as yourself to lead this community by your wonderful example! Thank you for pointing out the vast amounts of homosexuality in this hack as well, I didn't notice anything regarding it myself. Clearly I have missed it. Seriously, is that all you can say? Fucking worthless.

To Arctic: First of all, I'd read something on Color Theory. You don't seem to understand the significance of color combinations, and your contrast and general use of color is quite bad, to be frank.

Your art is a bit simplistic, but interesting. I think it would be cool if you redid all of the art assets, as your current style doesn't mesh well with the art of the original game.

Personally I think those shots look funky and cool. It's a completely different style, but I like it.

After playing on this for a little bit, I think it's safe to say that the colors are infact, too bright. I would suggest toning it down just a little bit, it was only really a problem when I tried to do full screen. Rather than that I can say the level design is pretty darn good and it looks like a fun hack. I look forward to the next version.

At a quick glance it did hurt my eyes, but. . I actually kind of like the title card. I 'unno. I find it's cute, to be honest. The colors are kind of harsh, but still, it's got some potential, and I as well am looking forward to seeing a next release. I think I'll download this one and give it a shot, the screens look kinda' neat.

(Not really feelin' Sonic's palette, though, but it's still nicer than anything I could ever pull out of my ass, haha. Good job, buddy.)

I guess the biggest issue with my hack is the contrast in the palettes. After all, this is the first zone I ever created, and I plan to make 5 more. I'll try to fix this in the next version. Maybe I was trying too hard to be original and creative.

From the pictures I like the art direction but you might want to fix up the palettes a bit. It's an interesting idea though. I like the title cards btw

I really like it! It totally feels like a different game. Good ASM work, sprite changes and level design, and yeah the colors are crazy but I feel like that was kind of the point right?

At first I was going to sarcastically tell you that recolors are lame and that the palette is making me colorblind, but I see an underline creative level design.

You got talent kid, but rusty around the edges though. Now don't screw it up! fix the palettes, change lolrecolor back into normal sonic (or just make a alternate version for us who just want to play as sonic), slow the music down!, and fix up your art assets to match the games overall art assets I don't mind unique as long as it matches.

Good luck in your future endeavors, I'll be keeping an eye on you.

EDIT: Why is the invincible theme the emerald hill theme?
