DeltaWooloo and SuperEgg presents: Do you like fish sticks? Do you like putting fish sticks in your mouth? Well, keep biting on those fish sticks because you'll need them as you play this incredible masterpiece of a ROM hack. Sonic 1 Fishsticks is a Sonic 1 ROM hack created by me (DeltaWooloo) and SuperEgg which aims to give you the best Sonic 1 experience possible. Explore South Island as you play one of the best well-structured, well-thought-out level designs. Jump over obstacles, destroy badniks and hey, do you notice a lot of traps everywhere? OK, maybe what I just said was an overstatement. This ROM hack will test your strength and ability to manoeuvre through the junk you hated in Sonic games/ROM hacks from the overuse of spikes to the iconic and most lovable badniks we all love and remember fondly. There are 7 levels to go through, and 6 emeralds to collect in each level (apart from the final one) which thankfully, you can keep if you die. As I was making this hack, I was a little lazy with the coding side of things and I haven't been bothered to fix the general Sonic 1 bugs. I'm referring to the infamous walk-jump bug and the classic spike feature (it's not a bug, fight me). They've been left intact within your journey which should be a benefit to your journey if you ask me. Level layouts aside, we even went ahead and made changes to the stinky blue rat himself by giving him a fresh makeover and using the sprites we all think are the definitive classic Sonic sprites out there (alongside having the best jumping sound effect (that being from Sonic CD)). He even has one neat move to go along with it, the spindash, see at least this ROM hack is being generous to you. There are also additional features that I'll let you read in-game. Whether they'll help you or not is something for you to find out. I don't want to spoil the fun. So, are you up to the challenge? Do you think you're really to keep biting those fish sticks down as you explore the wonders of this game? Get your controller out and explore the joy of playing such an aspiring and pleasant ROM hack!
