    Didn't expect this release to be quick and is fully playable except labyrinth zone. Labyrinth zone is skipped anyway so that's good in the format of game crashing.
    This does work on real hardware :)
    Clownacy For the V2 Clone Driver.
    Rom Below with screenshots:

    So I haven't played through all stages, just few like GHZ, MZ and SYZ. I found the palette changes a bit good but not good enough. Also, the tiles you used for GHZ and MZ is a bit strange I could say and it's hard to see where I am going. Plus it's not very pleasing in the eyes. And secondly which I liked is that you ported the songs correctly (although the title screen music has loud and different instruments playing for whatever reason.) I liked the Labyrinth Zone's palette as well.
    I also wanted to report a bug I found when going through the ending sequence. After the ending sequence has "ended" get it, because it's an ending sequence and I made a joke abo- the sega screen glitches the fuck out and well crashes the game for whatever reason you're having there.
    My overall score for this hack is 4/10, not bad but needs a lot of improvement. Especially with the art. As the art is the main issue I see here. The level design can be done afterwards.
    Take these as notes and don't take these stuff like seriously, I am just criticising and giving my review on it.

    yes I did notice that through my playtesting on the crash. However I didn't actually touch the code for it so I have no clue what causes that. At first I thought it was the signpost but it wasn't. So eh.

    i appreciate the sprite import from S3 to S1 but you should focus on improving level design. avoid overcrowding enemies and unnecessary springs. i recommend studying the level design used in S1, especially GHZ. Each act has its own qualities: Act 1 serves as a tutorial, introducing basic enemies, a 10 ring monitor and a yellow spring. act 2 offers more technical challenges with two alternative paths. act 3 allows players to choose their path based on speed. Each act has three different paths, with the upper section being easier, the middle section being average and the lower section being more complex.
    Another area for improvement is the art and proper use of palettes. some palettes feel poorly made or out of place, and the imported art, like the HUD needs improvement, art level too

    the ost is kinda "meh". i'd suggest using tunes from different games instead of S2, S3 or S3D.
