    This hack features 2 fully edited zones (GHZ, MZ), custom music composed and converted by me and palettes edit (main feature lol). This hack has very simple level layout (no alternate routes, because I ran out of ideas with concepts for alternative paths), but this time I've tried avoid dick/cheap/hard level design choices. Special Thanks goes to TheInvisibleSun/LuigiXHero for original concept and all hackers who did tutorials and programs to help us. This hack is WIP and stuff could change.

    Trying to be useful somehow.
    Marble Zone is surprising and its nice to play, while Green Hill gets very repetitive. What really causes some serious confusion on me is why does Sonic have a moustache? Wasn't Eggman the one with moustache? Are we playing in an alternate universe where Sonic is evil and Eggman just tries to rescue the world?

    The "mustashe" is just the shine on Sonic's muzzle, left over from the palette edits. Personally I would've made Sonic all black. Either way, this is a neat concept, I'd love to see this improve.

    I haven't been able to try this out yet, but I'll try to give it a shot next week (when I'm not traveling)

    Would be nice to see the background get some layers of brightness towards the distance, as in Limbo.

    Thank you all for constructive criticism. I've added BG now.

    Thank you very much! And wow, your artwork is 666x better than mine! I would be happy if this is still alive! :) I have another screenshot that have new BG for second zone.

    I really like the concept of the hack, I never played Limbo but I saw gameplays. And you just did it right. The idea, I like the Music and the atmosphere. Althrough, GHZ is a bit "hold right to win" if I am allowed to say it. A bit layout changes and it would be cool aswell. Marble Zone is just good and it just lacks Background, which you added by now.

    In all, I have to say that I really like it and you really should keep working on it.
