    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:

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Controls:
    • 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.

    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.
     
  3. Awesome. I just loaded it up and played it :) Nice work

    I just wanted to say that the sprite work is VERY well done here. I've always wanted Shadow with a proper classic style run and you've delivered in spades!
