I'm pretty sure those who have been lurking around Sonic Retro have heard of this.. but I wanted to share this with all of you. Sonic The Hedgehog Megamix, or just Sonic Megamix for short is a hack of the original Sonic The Hedgehog game. The game was created by a team of hackers known as Team Megamix, and is their first, and probably most popular project. The hack was created for the Sega Genesis, but recently was moved to the Sega CD. But there are many distinguishing features that make it differ than other hacks out there. There are five characters you can play as. Sonic The Hedgehog, Mighty The Armadillo, Shadow The Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower, and Knuckles The Echidna. Each character has their own type of gameplay, and highly differentiate from each other. Sonic: Gameplay is made up on the classic formula of high-speed action, and the usual platforming elements. Mighty: Based mostly on the ability to switch types of shield while playing. which can be a very useful thing if you want to protect yourself. Shadow: His gameplay is similar to that of Sonic's but is based more on exploration. And his ability to do constant speed boosts. Tails: Based on exploration like Shadow, but due to his ability to fly, his stages can be certainly easy in most open areas. Knuckles: His stages are based on his brute power, and can go through different shortcuts that other's cannot. ------------ In the Options' menu, you can choose which character you want. And even play around with the sound test. And choose which type of game you want. Here are the game options. Classic: Play through the original stages of Sonic 1, with remixed music, and other new experiences. The title page is that of Sonic's 1 title page also. Normal: Play through the all-new Megamix experience, with new interface, stages, music, enemies, and others. New stages include Sunny Shores Zone, Dark Fortress Zone, Starry Night Zone, Misty Maze Zone, and others! ------------- In the preferences menu, you can change things such as being able to turn on or off the spike bug, speed cap, in-game music, or type of gameplay with each of your character. Megamix: Gives your characters all-new abilities. Sonic and Shadow can both use the homing attack, the light speed dash, light speed attack. Sonic's "Super-Peel-Out" move from Sonic CD makes a return, and Shadow can use his Chaos powers, and make speed boosts. Mighty's shield abilities are activated in this mode too. Tails can use his special "tails attack" from Sonic Adventure. While Knuckles does not have any new abilities. Classic: You can jump and spin dash. That's it. Except for Tails and Knuckles, since Tails can fly, and Knuckles can glide. ------------------------- As the formula follows from all the Genesis games, if you collect six Chaos Emeralds from completing six special stages and nabbing the emeralds. Your character can transform into its own super form. In a super form, you get updated or brand-new abilities for your character. Super Sonic: Can dash at speeds seen never before, and even has the ability to fly in the air. Super Mighty: Able to generate his own shields, and can make an explosion that kills all enemies on the screen. Super Shadow: Can perform Chaos Blast, which easily kills all enemies on screen, and perform Chaos Control, which allows him to teleport. Super Tails: Sadly does not have his flicky army of death, but to make up for it, has a "super tails attack" which allows him to attack enemies with his tails at a much wider range. Knuckles does not have a super form at this moment. -------------- STAGES: Sunny Shores Zone Dark Fortress Zone City Outskirts Zone Misty Maze Zone Starry Night Zone Metallic Base Zone The Final Fight ----------- If you want to learn even more info of this game and yet download it?
