    As a quick project for the contest, I've ported Pink Edition's Big over to Sonic 1:

    Controls:
    * Lure Attack: Hold A to aim lure, the longer you hold the further it will throw.
    * Body Slam: Press B or C while jumping to slam down on anything under you.
    * Swim: Big will automatically float in water. Hold Down to sink.
    * Big can also smash walls just by running through them.

    In addition, Froggy is hidden in every act besides Final Zone. Try and find him.

    Bugs:
    * Title font appears behind Big due to some animation priority tricks.
    * Some possible situations where Big's lure attack does not reset properly, disabling the move until you get hurt or reset the game.
    * I haven't tested every Froggy location some might not be as reachable as they seemed on SonLVL.
    * Technically not a bug, but finding Froggy inevitably costs you a chance to enter the special stage ring. Might try and find a way around that in a later version.
    * Some obvious colour issues due to Big's different palette.

    Special Thanks:
    To DeltaWooloo, HitaxasTV, CampbellSonic, D.A. Garden and many others on the Retro forum and Discord server.

    Nice one.

    For some reason, until LZ2 I somehow assumed that the spin dash wasn't available. For consistency, I used it sparingly throughout the rest of the game as well.

    And on that note, here's a new revision:

    https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachme...Big_The_Cat_In_Sonic_The_Hedgehog_Rev_1.1.bin

    Updates:

    * Should hopefully fix the crash issues on some emulators when catching Froggy.
    * Hopefully fixed motion/animation bugs with Big when catching Froggy.
    * Catching Froggy at SBZ2 now immediately transitions to SBZ3.
    * Rev 01 upgrades added.
    * Started on some palette fixes.

    Thanx to everyone on here and the Retro discord server for updating on bugs.

    I was hoping that this would be fixed in the next version. These are too obvious errors...

    Yeah, there are some bugs here and there, I kept some in my video but I found a few more (e.g. try using the fishing rod while on SLZ's seesaws).

    Nonetheless, it's no mystery that I really like this hack.

    I would have to say, this hack definitely has it's originality. I like how it's a search and find quest for Froggy, and the physics for Big are really outstanding by my standards. Animations for Big are really impressive, same with the sprites. Although, rolling with Big can be a bit of a hassle, as it takes a while for him to get into his rolling state.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this hack and it was magnificent. Really nice job!
