A few years back I started tinkering with a Sonic 1 ROM hack, that for whatever reason was called "Android Genital", it's a dumb anagram for "Naldrag Edition". Then at some point a bit down the line I decided to rename it to Metal Beatdown because I wanted to add some weird Metal Sonic focus. All that weird information out of the way the idea behind this ROM hack was to make something similar to a harder Sonic 1 hack akin to "Revenge of the King" from Kirby Super Star Ultra. Complete with alternate palettes, different level layouts and harder enemy placements/traps, and even boss arenas. I never actually posted a public demo here or anything and every now and again I've been wondering if I should ever get back to work on this project. The only thing is I'd have to start it back up from scratch if I do, because the original data got lost after an older hard drive of mine got wiped... which isn't that big of a deal. So what I'd like to gauge is what people think of the level layouts, palettes, music, and whatnot. Demo Changes - All of Green Hill's layout has been changed - Most palettes have been changed - Most music has been changed - Zone order has been changed (I think) Screenshots Grape Hills Zone Spring Plaza Zone Stardust City Zone Blazing Pagoda Zone Deepsea Ruin Zone Gene Panic Zone Download ...And without further ado, the demo~ http://www.mediafire.com/file/gnyi6bcsaztkizr/smd_sag.zip/file Any feedback on this I'd appreciate, and if people seem to like it I believe I'll start back to work on this silly project... it'll probably get a name change though for obvious reasons ha ha ha. Unless people like the name that is.
