You see when I first played this during the Hacking Contest, I thought this was a troll entry with bad palettes and nothing else.

Then, after the update was sent in, I played the entire first level, then I realized what this hack actually was. Good work.

Everything about this is win. I also can't stop laughing at the GHZ Act 2 boss, let alone the rest.

One of the things that got on my nerves about the hack was that if you went too fast down the S tubes in GHZ Act 1, you'd instantly die from going off-camera. But looking back, I find that it helps to maintain the noob facade you're going for, as it makes the player think whoever created the hack didn't have the talent to fix bugs like this.

What highly amused me about those early, shitty palette hacks is the way they'd rename a zone, believing they were providing the player with a fresh new experience. To their minds making Green Hill's grass brown and the water Purple + calling it Toxic Hill Zone = all new zone.

But Toxic Hill Zone was my favourite classic-style innovation! :v: Nah I kid, loved this, especially the quiz one.

So, I forgot had this on my hard drive ( 7zip files won't read in Fusion, I'd forgotten to extract it! ) so I checked it out.

I had to pause the game at the end of Green Hill Act 2 so that I could stop laughing, well played there.

Good work on the other bosses as well.

I wish I had the patience to finish this game. It's really amusing, but these bosses are too hard for nooby/ADHD me.

The ultimate life form question had me laughing as I answered it incorrectly on purpose and got it right!

OMG the last two questions lol. Thankfully I got all questions right :P

Too a while to get to SPZ because of the first act boss though >:v

All in all, funny hack.

Watched a playthrough of this on Youtube; 10/10, would be trolled again.

You must have a bigger case of ADHD than I do, 'cause I finished it and I loved every second of it
