    I knew it wouldn't be long before someone releases their own version of a unfair sonic hack with some minor similarities to the one i made, which ended up going down hill. Not that i'm bothered about it, if you want to make your own version of a unfair sonic hack then that's fine (it's fine with me at least, i'm not sure about rest of the community).

    I just gave this a quick go to see what you have in store and i would like to say a few things:

    1. The idea of having check points kill you or flat out not working or having no checkpoints at all, although it's unfair and that's the point but i really don't think that's a good idea, granted i did that with my unfair hack but back then i wasn't thinking about people who didn't have access to save states when it comes to playing on real hardware.

    2. The lives system and game over, i will strongly recommend for a unfair sonic hack that you remove the game over screen and lives system and let the player have infinite lives or give them plenty of lives to work with providing that you plan to add a save\resume function that allows the player start where they got a game over.

    3. Being unable to get pass the first section of a level. Now this is one of the problems that my unfair hack had, I made the first section of the first level too hard to pass resulting in most people giving up easily without even managing to make any progress. So if i was you, i would make the level get harder and more unfair as you progress through the level whilst making sure that it's possible to beat.

    I know that this hack is suppose to be unfair and difficult but making a hack like this requires some major thinking especially as you have to follow the rule of making difficult level beatable.

    Anyway, that's all i have to say. I wish you good luck with finishing your own unfair sonic hack, i'm interested to see if you can do it better than what i did.

    Sorry, I see the spikes inside chunk where's goes with breakable wall. Oh no again, I die when I start to play GHZ2 and MZ2, music sounds weird, please don't publish an incomplete rom, this makes that, the game will be ugly, in a beginning I see your intention and I know do you want to show your first game, but excuse me, don't publish a simple layout hack and try to think more ideas, you must learning much about level design and think the history about your hack. Take the tips of positive way and if you want help, ask please.

    Sorry, is ain't fun to play this hack!

    Dude, there's one thing you said about this post that you did publicizing your hack.

    I just took the 1-UP monitors, and the rings, and just nothing happened.

    And that's because I was in a part of the original game phase at GHZ 2, probably a bug.

    If you want to make the game very difficult, or even impossible, complete it totally.

    Sorry, I had forgotten to mention that, your Minihacks must be here and, I'm not being rude with you, but when you want to show your hack, please keep in mind to test your hack and if you want a beta tester, just talk and someone will help you.

    The same goes to you. The edit button exists for a reason. Do not double-post.

    See how your two previous posts were merged into one by me? They shouldn't have been two posts to begin with. That's called double-posting and it clutters up threads. Barring a few exceptions, if you need to add to, amend, or further clarify previous posts (in your case, quoting a different user), don't make a new post. Edit the original.

    IMO, the best "unfair" hacks have some element of fairness in it and still have a ton of thought in its design besides "I'm just gonna make everything kill you and just place a bunch of bullshit everywhere", and also without needing to change the core game engine to make it even more bullshit.

    Everyone makes mistakes, no one is perfect, especially at a learning stage. But, I think it's fine as long as you learn from them. It's how we all improve ourselves, and it'll take time, but just keep at it.
