Sonic 2 XL

Discussion in 'Engineering & Reverse Engineering' started by Captain Bozo, Jul 12, 2010.

  1. I was kinda inspired by those crazy "Don't touch the rings they're bad" hacks to make a similar hack of my own. Mine's slightly different though, if you would like to give it a try. I wanna keep what happens a surprise though, at least until some people try it.

    Hack of the year. <I>Every</I> year.

    <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>Those sprites not only made me laugh (a first in a 'joke' hack, I can assure you) but look really good too! Kudos, Sir!</span>

    I did the sprites :D
    The only problem though is that nothing I do will ever top this

    Usually when people say things like "hack of the year every year", it's the ironic hyperbole which is so often popular on the internet, or simply exaggeration.

    <I>Usually.</I>

    Utterly fantastic.

    .. this is amazing.

    Requesting a full sheet of those sprites. Something as wonderful as this should be shown in full.
     
  12. True story. This hack was going to be called Sonic and the Onion Rings, but Ranger said that Sonic 2 XL is a better name, and I agree :3

    That's what those are supposed to be btw. I'm a horrible spriter XD

    Oh man I lol'd.

    This art of making hacks of Sonic games to increase the difficulty in some minor but clearly notable ways should have it's own section in the wiki.
