Since it's the Hacking Contest week, I thought I might release an early demo of S3K hack!

This is one of my main Sonic 3 and Knuckles hacking projects! This hack is a demo that contains a completely new gameplay mechanic I that came up with and developed. This gameplay mechanic allows the player to store a limited amount of powerups the their inventory, so the player can choose when they want to utilize the power up they collected.

This is a project that I have been working on for several months now, so I want showoff this project and receive feedback on. This will be one of my main projects that I will persist to keep working on!

Playable Levels
Since it's a demo the only playable levels are Angel Island Zone Act 1, 2, and 3.

Playable Characters
For this demo, Sonic is the only playable character. The reason is that I plan to come up with new powerups and level design changes specifically for the other characters that I didn't have the chance to get to yet.

New inventory mechanic for powerups
New Sound effects and Drums samples from Sonic CD and Knuckles' Choatix
New level design built from scratch to work with the new game mechanic
New powerups such as the Combi-Ring (from Chaotix), Rocket Shoes, and Pogo Spring (from Sonic Choas) and etc.
New HUD display, voice samples, End Results display, and so much more!

Instructions for the new gameplay mechanics
Controls for usage of Inventory:
Swapping powerups - Press B while NOT jumping nor airborne. (Standing or rolling on the ground.)
Utilizing items - Press Jump (A or C) then the B button to use the power up displayed at the TOP of the inventory.

Controls for usage of Exclusive Character Powerups:
Pogo Spring - Press and hold DOWN on the D-pad to increase to height of the bounce.
Rocket Shoes - Press LEFT or RIGHT on the D-pad to alter Sonic's direction on the horizontal axis.
In order to leave the powerups, press A or C.

A and C are both still jump.

Storing Powerups to Inventory
By simply breaking a monitor, the powerup from the monitor will be added to your inventory. (Excluding 1 ups and super ring monitors. They automatically get added to your life and ring counter.)

It's also important to note that the player can only carry 3 power ups at a time. If your inventory exceeds this number, then the powerup displayed at the BOTTOM of the inventory will fall out of your inventory as a bouncing icon. You can still collect it and restore it to your inventory, by touching it before it disappears!
