Well, you all thought Sonic 2 Recreation was dead, didn’t you? Well, it did die, but it’s been revived, with an all new game plan!
Unlike most hacks, there’s an objective to the game. To pass the level, you must first, find the emerald. Otherwise, you cannot complete the level/act.
The emerald is hidden somewhere within the level, one per level (so more than likely going to be 7 proper levels). The first act is the emerald hunting. The second will be the boss. Reason for making the second act as just the boss is because of two reasons:
1) I can’t be bothered making it a proper level.
2) The first act will hopefully be so hard finding the emerald; you wouldn’t want to do it again for the second act.
How does it work? Well, there is a barrier relatively close to the end of the act, which will not let you pass. When you come into contact with the emerald, the barrier will disappear and it will give you access to the end of the level.
Emerald Hill Zone act 1 is nearly done; basically, I’m just going over it again and again. The rest of the other acts or levels are not done.
Anyway, for your viewing pleasure, here are some pictures.
Ah, nice breeze, lovely chequered floor and walls, nice trees, lovely robot monkey, and look at them squared-clouds!
What’s that to the right? It looks like a dash hoop! (The dash hoop is still not complete)
Depending on which way you came, the collision will act in a different way. This is showing Sonic running on the floor.
Coming from up above on the slope, will let you run down and through the floor so...
... You end up here. Good, eh?
Surprisingly enough, this box will give you 10 rings.
This box will give you a random amount. It’ll either be 1 ring, or 10, 20 or 40 rings (got help from Ultima for this).
I let you gather what these boxes do.
This is the barrier. It will not let you pass until you have that emerald!
Other levels I intend to include:
This is my own level art. I’m planning to make this over-write Mystic Cave Zone.
This is my old level art that I used in Red Hot Sonic 2.
The art based from Sonic Rush, Mirage Road Zone. This was from my old Sonic 2 Recreation.
This is my other made-up art from my head. This was also from my old Sonic 2 Recreation.
I am debating on this one. Please let me know what you think of what to do. This was going to be in Red Hot Sonic 2.
My testers so far are
I may want a few more.
Please leave comments, questions, criticism, etc. Thank you!
Thanks to SMTP for general help, Ultima for the dash hoop code help and the ?ring monitor help and Stephen for telling me how to make still sprites to objects. Anyone else I've missed out, let me know.
