    This hack is yet another rip off hack of Classic Heroes but with 4th players! This hack is a celebration hack for my 10 years of hacking Sonic games since 2010!

    The ability to play 4 players in the game at once (with their own A.I.)

    3 extra characters added with their own abilities and movesets (Tails, Knuckles, and Amy)

    The ability to swap between players by pressing the Y button

    The ability to change your character by pressing the X button

    New Menus added with SRAM Functionality

    Pause menu added

    Level Select: Up, Down, Left, Right, A

    Well, color me impressed! I did not think this hack would ever exist, but it does! However, while I did not play much of it, I already have to give it a pass.
    When you play with 4 different characters at once (or at least, with 3 AIs), the game REEEALLY starts to lag. So much that it's not funny anymore. I can not imagine how LZ underwater looks like.
    Also, I decided to actually connect 4 "controllers" to test out multiplayer functionality, only to find out that Player 3 also controls Player 2. (And I triple checked this was not a mistake on my end.)
    Furthermore, if Tails grabs another Tails while flying, things get very glitchy.
    I was planning on Netplaying this with a few friends of mine, but since I found so many issues so quickly, I simply can not recommend this hack.
