    No where-ville
    The aim of this hack is to be a tag team for Sonic 3 and Knuckles (similar to the tag team gimmick from Sonic Mania's encore mode), where the player has the ability to swap between two players with the press of a button.

    - New menu with save feature
    - Pause menu with minor functions
    - Tag team gimmick with ability to swap partner
    - Option to change controls for A, B, C buttons
    - Changed Death functionality
    - The freedom to explore Sonic's or Knuckles' paths in levels with any character
    - Player 2 can full have full interaction with the game
    - New villain character added (Nack the Weasel)

    Some Rules Changes to the Game
    - In order to access a Special Stage you need 50 Rings or more when hitting a checkpoint or walking near a SS Ring Portal
    - Your ring counter drains each second you are in a Special Stage, and once it reaches zero you are kicked out of a Special Stage

    Additional info to gameplay mechanics
    - When you die, you will immediately swap to your partner if he is alive
    - Your partner will spawn back to you within 7-8 seconds after death
