    Well, this is the third "hacking" contest (we've progressed past that, right?). Last time I admit was a disaster. I made it rather large, not expecting the eventual control of my life that my parents would exert over me. Now that I am free from that, I have the ability to do as I please with this contest, although the judging part will be on a much smaller scale.

    PRIZES

    As always, there are prizes for the best trophy. This will be done better this time with a banner given to the winner of each one. We don't have someone to do the art for this yet, but if worse comes to worst, I will have plenty of time to do so.

    ???? Zone Trophy - ???? is the name of your choice! This award goes to the grand prize winner!
    Hidden Palace Trophy ? First place
    Dust Hill Trophy ? Second place
    Wood Trophy ? third place
    Genocide City Trophy ? think you have a hard game or level? This award goes to the hardest game or level
    Amy Trophy ? this goes to the prettiest hack
    Rainbow Trophy ? this goes to the best palette hack
    Soda Trophy ? this goes to the best sprite hack (get it? Soda? Sprite? *shot*)
    Lava Reef Trophy ? this goes to the longest level hack
    Green Hill Trophy ? this goes to the level or game that plays most like a Sonic level or game
    Labyrinth Trophy ? most confusing level
    Hill Top Trophy ? least creative level design
    1337!!! Trophy ? worst Sonic hack
    2337!!! Trophy ? grand prize winner of the worst Sonic hack? just try and make my eyes bleed
    Casinopolis Trophy ? the game I can get the most rings or highest score
    1000101 Trophy ? best technical hack
    Windy Valley Trophy ? best art hack
    Chute Trophy ? best Sonic 2 SS hack
    Sphere Trophy ? best Sonic 3 SS hack
    Maze Trophy ? best Sonic 1 SS hack
    Mini Trophy - best Sonic Advanced hack
    Shadow Trophy ? best Hentai-based hack
    WTF?! Trophy ? most unique hack
    Level Up Trophy - best modified engine hack

    Well, the best is to take the time to make things, then I don't care about this new contest.
    Maybe next time with my new release.

    Good luck for all the hackers anyway.

    on the contrary, he can. A music hack category will be added and you may enter as many hacks as you'd like. I'll come up with a name for this trophy asap.

    EDIT: It will be called the Piano Trophy unless it is decided otherwise
