    Sonic 1 Dragon Edition V3.2 is here. It's been over a year since the last release, at least on the forums. Just as promised, Hydro Base Zone has undergone an overhaul with new art, new music, and a revised layout, but additionally, we have more new features and quality improvements. Another thing to mention is that I've split the complete stages from the incomplete ones to make a concise demo, for less confusion on the game's progress. This is also entered in the Sonic Hacking Contest 2017, so check it out, along with the rest of the hacks!

    What's New:
    Hydro Base Overhaul! Run through a rebuilt mechanical-tropical paradise!
    Melon Park Tweaks! We wanted to balance the difficulty of this zone to more of a mid-game level. We've also added a new boost pad object to add more interactivity and flow.
    Super Sonic! Now there's a reason to collect the chaos emeralds!
    Music Revamp! The sound driver has installed MarkeyJester's Dual PCM, along with adding and redoing several tracks.
    Harmonization Effects! Several sound effects adjust to the music, making a pleasing harmony.

    Find the download in the original post. Also released is the original soundtrack!

    Also, give thanks to MarkeyJester for creating Dual PCM, BinBowie for HUD and menu fonts, and LuigiXHero, TheStoneBanana, HyperFrost, and JoenickROS for beta testing!

    This is possibly the best hack in the entire contest and you've come so far in making it. The level art is amazing. I never seen anything quite like it in any other hacks.
    And the music, as I've said before on discord, is definitely the best custom music I've heard made especially for a hack.
    I really want this to win the Hidden Palace trophy just because I think it's that good.

    Same. Even if it just contains two zones, they are well polished and just awesome. The music is nice, the art is amazing and all the new mechanics...This is the true hidden palace winner.
