    A new demo of the ROM hack that no-one has been asking for is finally here! Sonic the Hackable features new stage layouts, new gimmicks and new moves, including the speed-breaking air dash. Those who dare to revisit South Island will find a new and challenging experience.

    This hack is currently still in development. Be in the lookout for new updates in the future.

    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 once again up to Sonic to stop him!

    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.

    I just read the story of this game and an idea came to me.
    That is another name for the ROM hack:
    Sonic the Hedgehog:The reconstruction of MK II
    For this title I was inspired by this part:'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'.
    What do you think about it?
    Speaking of the hack itself, it has good and challenging mechanics.
    The part that I liked the most was the last part for its speed.
    Another thing to say is that it rewards you for your skill (the less you fall, you spend less time getting to the end), and I like it.:D

    Hmm, I guess it is a more logical title in regards to the story, but I think it makes it sound like the Death Egg Mk II is the main focus of the entire hack, which it is not.
    I mean, the Death Egg Mk II will be the final level, but main focus of this hack is to give Sonic 1 a Sonic 4 themed overhaul.
    There will be some non-Sonic 4 bits to keep the whole thing from feeling like a rehash (like SYZ2), but the whole 'its Sonic 1 again but with a bit more Sonic 4 flair' thing is currently this hack's main focus.


    Now, that being said...
    WHY DOES EVERYBODY KEEP GETTING CONFUSED ABOUT THIS HACK'S NAME!? IT'S A REFERENCE TO "SONIC THE PORTABLE" WHICH WAS SONIC 4'S DEVELOPMENTAL NAME. I KNOW THE REFERENCE IS HELLA OBSCURE BUT W- oh, that's probably what it is. The reference is way too obscure.

    Huh.

    Neither did I. Last I thought, it was called Pikachu in a Sombrero.

    It was also referred to as Project Needlemouse.
