READ THIS ENTIRE POST SO YOU CAN UNDERSTAND SHIT
Unlike in that one thread I shall not mention, I'm not gonna shove this message in your face with tons of curse words that the puny brain can handle, so without further ado, let's get into this.
So, it all starts after the contest week. Seeing the responses from Pepsi in Sonic 1, I felt disappointed in myself. I proved that I can create good level layouts (as shown with my shiny new Lava Reef Trophy), but everything else about the hack, as well as my other entries still showed that I was an immature cunt who was still an idiot. So right after the contest, I started working on this hack. My goal: Make the best hack anyone has ever seen in awhile. I know this won't be the best (as we all know Markey already has the description for best hacker ever), but I want to make something that is both new and great. So after only 2 months in, this hack is in it's early moments. Lot's of stuff unfinished, from art to level layouts and other stuff. There's also a few problems, but we'll go into that in a bit. So, I was able to get 4 levels into the game. Only 2 of them are good enough to be considered passable, while 1 is still very unfinished while the other is just bad to the point where I'm going to redo it from scratch. So, let's get into all the zones in this game, shall we?
Egg Plant Zone:
The first level of the game, this is what happens when Eggman gets his hands on Green Hill Zone. Anyways, this zone sucks. HARD. I hate this zone as it currently is in this demo. The art is extremely unfinished as well as it being bad (pillow shading hell). The only reason I left it in was because 1) the level layouts were already done by the time I decided to pull the plug, and 2) I didn't have enough time to import all the art AND get all of the zone art done. So what we have here is a zone which should only be played for it's level layouts. Note that Act 3's BG was never made and it's just a mess. I never got around to doing it. So, I recommend skipping this zone. Note that the music was going to be an Act 2/3 thing, but because of some inside problems with some of the people making music for this, the song we needed never got finished. Here's a mockup of what this level will look like in the future.
Marble City Zone:
A city which was built ontop of a volcano. This level is the most unfinished level, with only the basic art completed, with tons of stuff still needed to be done. Only check out this zone if you want to look at the art.
Desert Dazzle Zone:
Now this isn't even hiding the fact I'm copying the Taxman. Basically, this is Desert Dazzle. It's a desert level... but flooded with water. Level layout is pretty basic and might be redone. Some art needs to be done.
Green Hill Zone:
So Sonic has finally broken GHZ of Eggman's grasp, and now he can go through it normally. This is the last level in the game, and it contains the best song ever, Green Hills Zone. Only Act 1 is complete.
-Problem with Special stage sending you back to beginning of level, even if you hit lamppost you will start right at the beginning of the level.
-Speed shoes music not restarting music up
-Some problems with pathswappers, mostly in Egg Plant
-Egg Plant Act 3 not having any new background
-A few palette stuff I need to change
-the DAC in Joenick's songs being all messed up
-Some other stuff I forgot to mention
One thing I need to say is if you want to do a video of this, please ask me on a PM. I hate how people just take hacks when they are very early in development and just upload them to an audience of over a thousand, and don't even link them to the thread and just sends them to the download.
Oh, and um, here's some credits:
-Various guides on SSRG and Retro for helping with stuff
-the people who worked on SonED2 and SonLVL
-Markey's fabulous Sonic 1 Two-Eight disasm for being the greatest
-The people who worked on SonMapEd (why did I use this for importing tiles why)
-Selbi's cool Sonic 1 Text Generator thing which I used to pull the broken title cards out of my ass.
-The people at SSRG's discord for some help with stuff
-Everything else in this hack was done by me, besides music which the credits for each song can be seen in song list.

Please don't say anything about Egg Plant Zone. By the time this is posted I'm gonna be getting rid of all the art and level layouts and replacing it with the new art. I appreciate any criticism, as I want this hack to be better, but just don't talk about Egg Plant Zone. I know it's bad and I don't need to be reminded.
