    The first release will essentially be s1 with new graphics and some new game mechanics. I'm slowly improving the engine with bits from s2/s3 and some custom changes, so most changes won't be visible to the player.

    That version will be finished soon, I only have to remake the graphics in Star Light and Special Stage, and Robotnik's sprite.


    Then I'll begin work on the new zones. Current plans are 3 zones of 2-3 acts between GHz and Mz, SYz and Lz, and Lz and SLz, an additional level for GHz (already done), an additional level for SBz after Final zone (done excepted for the boss), then 3 "zones" of 1 act each, hopefully with an additional special stage (which will require a specific engine so I'm not sure yet).

    I couldn't think of a transition between Marble and Spring Yard yet, but if I do that'll be one more zone.

    Transition? You mean like in Sonic 3? How about he jumps on a spring, taking him up high into Spring Yard?

    A spring taking him into SPRING Yard Zone? Oh man...that is clever.

    Do i detect a hint of sarcasm

    Here's how i see the transitions

    Green Hill to Marble= a tunnel behind the waterfall

    Marble to Spring Yard=springs bouncing him up to the starting point of Act 1

    Spring Yard to Labyrinth=he falls down a hole

    Labyrinth to Star Light=he runs out of the cave, seeing it's now nighttime

    Star Light to Scrap Brain=He just keeps running until he gets there

    Actually, I wasn't being sarcastic. That's the first time I've seen someone associate Spring Yard Zone with springs. Seems as if everyone else associates it with a city.

    I was actually thinking about a legitimate transition between MZ and SYZ from a lava geiser launching a chunk of land (With Sonic On it of course) up into the air. Much like HCZ from S3; though instead of dropping into the zone in the starting point, He actually flies up from the bottom boundary of the screen. At least to ensure a less tacky form of transition; Spring transition, bleh.

    I always thought Marble Zone was an active volcano prison, so falling into SYZ would make more sense to me.

    Yeah HCZ Is Hydrocity and you know the part where after freeing the animals you get launched up by a water spout and then find yourself falling into MGZ? He wants something like that.

    So after seeing a recent post over at Retro, it inspired me to create a new hack. If you love character hacks, you'll love this one!

    xD Yep Robotnik is still the same, didn't know exactly if I should change him or not. But I probably won't do so. Here's the hack in action, I still need to fix and add many sprites and fix Sonic's palette too.

    A character called Ring collecting Sonics?  This is unique and pretty cool!

    Will the ring rotate? I know there's a small technical difficulty, but it's definitely possible and it could look better.

    WOW, this is unlike anything I've ever seen. Nice work.

    What is this? A Sonic hack?

    No.

    It's a side project while I'm not working on my main project. It will be a sort of Alex-Kidd/Sonic hybrid type game. This will become a lot more apparent when more work is done on it.

    It's "fan game" made with game maker.

    Hopefully you guys don't mind if I post a few screenshots here.

    To see them all check out my website.

    If you can achieve a nice parallax-scrolling effect to give the illusion of perspective, definitely go with A. Otherwise, I'd go with C.
