Note: This page only covers information on the update for the Fourth Public Release. For more information about the entire hack itself, check out the Wiki page.


Selbi, a few days before he started to work on this update, said:

I'm just going to add a level and do one or two bug fixes. Should be done in a week.

And now I sit here, almost 8 months later, writing down this topic. It would've been even longer if something back in May didn't suddenly make me finish my work. It looked like I could be done by June, but problems made me delay it almost by yet another month.

But now it's finally here!


About this update:

This version, originally titled 'The SLZ Update', turned out into something I had never expected. An overview of the most important changes:

  • Added 3 new levels, of which one is a special one.
  • Added 2 new bosses.
  • Remixed or added many new songs.
  • Rewrote all story texts - now featuring more terrible humor.
  • Added a system so people will no longer have an excuse for being bad.
  • Added too much unnecessary extras throughout the game.
  • Fixed more bugs, exploits, and graphical elements than you could imagine.
  • Secrets...


I will leave you at this because I don't want to spoil anyone too much.


Media:

These screenshots do NOT show the important parts of this update, because, once again, I want to keep spoilers to a minimum. Instead, I will provide you with the content you may look forward to or images I've already posted before:

For a deeper (but not spoiler free) insight, watch MegaGWolf's amazing hack showcase video:



As well as DalekSam's teaser trailer video he created a few weeks after I started working on the update (specifically, in March). That means the content of this video is incredibly outdated, but it's still worth a watch.


Special Thanks:

Although they are already listed in the in-game credits, I would like to give special thanks to the following people, without whom I would've never been able to create this game:

  • MarkeyJester
  • vladikcomper
  • DalekSam
  • Spanner
  • EduardoKnuckles
  • SonicVaan


As well as some fellows I would like to mention for their minor, yet important contributions or help:

  • MainMemory
  • Jorge
  • Tongara



Changelog:

And with that I'm giving you the download link. I hope you will have as much fun as I had creating this game in the past three years. :)/>

Just beat it. MUCH less frustrating than I remember it, and much more enjoyable as a result. I actually found the special stage kind of fun, and chuckled at what happens in the end.

That was tight

But teleporting instead of instakilling really makes things easier

Title Screen - I know what you are thinking after looking at Sonic. No need to tell me.

@Razor-ua: Thanks for the video! While I think I will probably do a video myself, it would pretty much look like your's, because you play excactly like I do. Is this happening to be a TAS?

@dsrb: I tried it, seriously, but there's one major problem: The Sonic on the title screen doesn't have legs and I really didn't want to get somebody draw them for a 2 seconds sequence.

But absent-legged Sonic is probably even more fitting to this hack's ethos! wink.png

Anyway, I'll give this a try soon. Glad to hear the difficulty has been attenuated, if only because I'm an unskilled gamer! (Seriously, let's see how long it is until I defeat Seven Force on Normal. Normal.)

This is by far one of the most amusing hacks in the history of ever. Some very funny glitches were had too



Overall, everyone involved made something quite funny if a bit unbeatable (but that's my own fault for being so unskilled specialed.png ).

Best part to me was the use of Spark Mandrill's theme and Chaos Angel and that one Mega Man Zero track which I can't quite put my finger on right now. <3

Awesome job. c:

EDIT: Oh yeah, one thing that really surprised me positively was the implementation of a feature I waited to hear in a hack since I first heard it used in Shadow the Hedgehog: the music going and not restarting after you loose a life : D

No, this is happening to be my nerdiness. That video was recorded after 5-10 tries... And playing previous release back in a day obviously helped me

All I can really say is that it's less fucked up than the previous versions. Also, what do people think about the music? It fits, doesn't it?

Oh crap, almost forgot to put this here:



It's a mix between speed run, walkthrough and just pure demonstration. v.png

I've playing this, and I have to say this is one of the best hacks I've ever played. I love it.

Alo, I've found a bug on the special stage. Sonic sprite corrupts and then, it uncurls.

It doesn't affect gameplay, but..it's strange. Also, when you walk on the coloured blocks, his feets are in the blocks, not on it.
