    Sonic the Hackable (formerly known as "A Generic Sonic 1 ROMhack") is a ROM hack which main focus is level design. The second and third acts of a zone have their own unique gimmicks to make them stand out from the original.

    The current levels are modified: GHZ 1-3, MZ 1-3 and Special Stages 1&2.

    Crush Dr. Eggman!

    After Dr. Eggman's defeat in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, the Death Egg MK II has crashed into the ocean next to South Island. The giant wave created by the Death Egg MK II's collision with the ocean surface has even caused parts of the island to go underwater!
    Not long after Dr. Eggman managed to escape to land, he became enraged upon seeing where he was. South Island was the place where his first defeat by the hands of Sonic the Hedgehog had happened, so this island held a particularly bad memory for him. Filled with rage, Dr. Eggman swore that this is the island where he will end Sonic once and for all.

    Now, by using his past knowledge of the Island and by renovating his old base, Dr. Eggman built his new fortress on South Island.
    Dr. Eggman has also planned to use the six chaos emeralds (which Sonic apparently lost, again) as a power source to relaunch the Death Egg MK II. It's up to Sonic to stop him (again)!

    Oh shit.

    Welp, I changed the game's name back to it's original name. How do I change the thread's title?

    (I'll reupload the ROM tonight, gotta change it's name)

    -----[Edit]-----

    Alright, ROM's back up.
