Here I am again, with my second hack project, joining the madness of 'X character IN Sonic 1' too :P
And hence Shadow is my fave character and there wasn't any Shadow in S1 hacks (at least that I'm aware of) I decided to make one for him.


This by no means is intended to be a copy of Sonic Megamix. As I said, I just wanted it to be plain Shadow in Sonic 1.
Also I want to give thanks to the wonderful people that helped me on this, making it kinda a collaborative project between me, Jimmy Hedgehog, Selbi, MarkeyJester and E-122-Psi, thanks to these people for their help and coding and from the marvelous people who made the Shadow sprite sheet found on The Mystical Forest Zone page http://themysticalforestzone.com/sprites_2..._two_Gardow.png (and me, of course, because I did some of the sprites that were missing :P)







Download Rev.1.1:

http://www.mediafire.com/?qnmi448rjs112o8

Earlier revisions:

http://www.mediafire.com/?76w8l6e38558tvy

Movelist:

Down + Jump: Spindash
A: Kick
D Pad + Jump: Homming attack/Jumpdash

Known bugs:

*Miscolorations from pallette restrictions almost everywhere


To Do List:

*Implement walljump in the future
*Implement an aerial attack while pressing A in the air (a flying kick maybe?)

I guess you must be using the wall jump to give shadow moves to make the hack stand out but you'd be better off adding a gun powerup hidden in one or more levels than adding walljump. From what I remember the walljump is not a move he ever uses. Just give him moves he's actually done in the past.

maybe so, but still it doesnt hurt to give him something new too hehe :P well, if I can I'll take your suggestions and maybe someday I can program monitors with guns that he can use.

Well...I guess you COULD count the triangle jump from Heroes as a wall jump...

In that case the wall jump maybe could work. Anyway I tried the hack, aside from the miscolorations it's pretty good. Chibi Shadow is pretty funny and I like the animation of him skating when at full speed. You might consider letting him attack while in the air instead of homing attack when using the attack button. Hopefully you can fix the HUD color in the next version. Perhaps use the colors of the Rings for the HUD.

ah yeah, I totally forgot for an Aerial attack...well, I'll try to implement one in the next revision then.

About the HUD colour...well, im not sure about it :P I just wanted it to be red, but maybe I can change it back to yellow back again I guess

Another thing I was juggling but I have no idea how to make, would be making him able to use Chaos Control when he gets 1 or more emeralds, but yeah... :P not enough knowledge yet

Excuse me while I think out loud, but that strikes me as a rather tongue-twisting title. (also it sounds like a perverted fanfic) Wouldn't plain old Shadow in Sonic 1 be more in keeping with the recent spate of character hacks of this game?

The character is actually called Shadow the Hedgehog and the game is actually called Sonic the Hedgehog. Also on the wiki the character hacks usually follow that naming format too.

Amy Rose in Sonic the Hedgehog
Amy Rose in Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Charmy Bee in Sonic the Hedgehog
Vector the Crocodile in Sonic the Hedgehog
Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic the Hedgehog

are examples. Also, look at the Title screen.

There is one. It's a bonus that came from some secret hidden in a level in Project Shadow 2, and it was just a sprite hack.

He also walljumps in his own game.
