    So I decided to stop being a scared little boy, be a man, and post something.

    EHZ-only Demo <a href="http://www.filesavr.com/sonic2retouchedehzdemo" target="_blank">here.</a> An infinite EHZ loop because I couldn't make it go back to the title screen.

    Anyway, Sonic 2: Retouched is my second practice hack, only it isn't me just bullshitting around. It's got a purpose, to snazz up Sonic 2 just a little bit with small art edits here and there, brand new layouts, and new art for both Hill Top Zone and Death Egg Zone. I also plan to port Tails' flying ability, but I've yet to begin start on that.

    Thanks to silent.creature for that dynamic palettes tutorial he did a while back.

    I will admit, that there is some snazzy level design. Keep it up! =D

    I'm looking forward for more releases, the hack and stuff look promising and stuff. Though there is one question; Will the bosses be harder? =P

    Oh totally. Just for now, I'm focusing on layouts. Got things in order, after all.

    Could someone put another mirror up? File Savr hates me.

    Yeah mate, liking the layout so far. I think there's a tutorial for porting Tails' flying abilty somewhere.

    Oh and you got the horizontal spikes working, too.
     
  8. Apart from the few broken chunks, it's looking great :).

    It plays good. I like the level layout, mainly in zone 1. I think for zone 2 you should just darken the background instead of the whole palette.

    Can't wait to see more levels.

    Well, I've done a bit of work on this since I first posted this. Not as much as I'd like to say, but...it's something.

    Got the level select screen taken care of.

    Nice little secret up there. Not too easy to get as Sonic, though. Same with Tails, for now.

    I'd like a little feedback on the palette. I wasn't too sure what to do with it.

    I'm probably nitpicking here, but, why are these two pics darker than the others?

    Other than that, looks good.

    They're underwater, presumably.

    I like the above ground palette, but the underwater palette looks more like the normal palette put through a dark filter rather than water

    Yeah, they do look underwater. (Bubbles on the left of the second picture)

    I like the look of EHZ's palette. Is that a night-time section I spy?

    <a href="http://www.mediafire.com/file/nwiiyelwifg/Sonic%202%20Retouched%20EHZdemo.rar" target="_blank">Try this.</a>

    Apparently, that "GUARANTEED 100GB STORAGE FOR LIFE" at Filesavr doesn't apply if they hate you.

    And yes, the darker screens are underwater. I should make it a bit more blue, so it's more obvious.
