    Are you that damn annoyed by Underground Zone Boss that you quit playing this game? Do you wish to see a less sadistic version of Green Hills Zone act 3? Or just wondered if the Silver Sonic boss could be easier?

    These are the purposes of Sonic 2: Sweet Relief. A hack of Sonic 2 (Sega Master System) that includes rings in all boss zones. Includes:

    Underground Zone act 3: 42 rings
    and a 10-ring box
    Sky High Zone act 3: 24 rings
    Aqua Lake Zone act 3: 48 rings
    and an invincibility monitor
    Green Hills Zone act 3: 49 rings
    also changed the layout so that fall in spikes pit != sure death
    Gimmick Mt. Zone act 3: 18 rings
    Scrambled Egg Zone act 3: 20 rings
    Crystal Egg Zone act 3:
    :o View it yourself!

    SGR asked to make more clear the access to the emerald in GMZ2, but finally was dropped.

    If any game needed a playability hack it would be this one. :thumbsup:

    Thanks, Rolken. You have been added to the credits list. What would have I done without your level maps...

    UPDATE: This hack now has its own entry in the wiki.

    That robot seal boss is so easy! You have to be kidding me. I do think that the final boss is a lot harder (and much more clever!) than the final boss in sonic 1 though. Maybe this will give this game some much deserved attention.

    I'm of the opinion that anyone who didn't already know how awesome SMS Sonic 2 is should slap themselves in the face. And then correct the mistake by playing it loads.

    Incidentally, do recent developments in SMS Sonic 2 hacking indicate some sort of utility for us idiots on the horizon? :thumbsup:

    Psst.
    Having invincibility doesn't allow you to damage the seal robot.

    I doubt that, because I lack of programming knowledge. I'm starting with Visual Basic next season, so perhaps.
    All changes in the ROM have been made in hex.

    I didn't know about SMS Sonic 2.

    But that's because I didn't care to find out more about a sub par game.

    Was s2 SMS really that hard? I agree Emerald Hills Zone act 3 was a bitch, but UGZ? Come on! It's nothing compared to the GG version.

    Maybe not easy as hell but I could beat it several times also with all the emeralds.
    It was quite challenging, I give you that.

    I only had problems getting to the later levels because I'm not too good at controlling the physics. When it came to the bosses, they weren't really hard, they just required a bit of practice.

    I figure this hack makes things a bit more forgiving, though, so nice work with that. :thumbsup:

    Also yes, I keep forgetting I want to buy the SMS version some time. It was quite enjoyable on an emulator already.
     
  14. Yeah, I hated the physics, I could never get passed the first few zones. Like Tweaker said, not hard, just a bitch. I like this. My friend got it on his PC and I played it there, very good :P

    Rolljump like a bitch!

    Yeah, I always thought the 8-bit Sonics were distinctly lacking in terms of their lack of quasi-newtonian movement, but the zones had a lot of charm to them -- the clusterfuck that is the Triple Trouble physics is well worth putting up with for Meta Junglira Zone!
     
  16. Good job a DS SMS/GG emulator came out recently.
