Yup, it's him again. But we all know the only Shadow in S1 (made by FeliciaVal) hasn't aged well over the years, and so, I took a couple of months to develop a more presentable one:

  • B/C: Jump
  • Down + A/B/C: Spin Dash
  • Jump + Hold C: Drop Dash
  • A: Light Dash
  • (Only in midair) A/B/C: Forced Rolling
  • Jump + Hold Up + B: Super Shadow / Revert (needs 6 emeralds)
  • Jump + Hold Down + B: Chaos Blast (Only as Super, drains 10 rings)

Due to some personal stuff, I haven't been able to improve the Light Dash more than planned, but I think it will be fine until the next major update I do.
And before you ask "Where's the Homing Attack?", just take note that almost everyone in the hacking scene agrees the technique is a big NO for classic Sonic games. So I made an exception here and brought the Drop Dash directly from Sonic Mania, in order to provide a bit of variety.

Download (v1):


  • E-122-Psi: Coding and feedback (Thanks again!)
  • FireRat: Coding and Drop Dash porting
  • JoenickROS: Custom SMPS (I Am All Of Me)
  • MarkeyJester: Coding
  • Crash (SSRG): Original Light Dash code
  • TheKKM, MotorRoach, Lisnovski, & Kapacitad: Sprites related stuff (check my sprite sheet for more info)
  • VladikComper: MegaPCM
  • Mercury: Demo recording tool

Oh, and you can activate a little extra by playing sound "9C" in the sound test! ("9D" to turn it off)

While it is, of course, 'yet another' Shadow hack, the addition of new moves always adds a much greater sense of desire for a full play-through then just a simple sprite swap. Looks like good stuff, I'll give it a shot later tonight.
