Metal Sonic Collection: Metal Sonic Hyperdrive

Metal Sonic Hyperdrive is a heavy modification of Sonic the Hedgehog (1991) by Lone Devil with brand new Zones, Sonic CD style gameplay, music, playable characters, and gameplay modes.

Starring Metal Sonic, taking Sonic’s role as the main protagonist to stop Dr’Robotnik’s greatest inventions yet.

Also starring special guests such as Kirby, and Somari.

Metal Sonic Collection: Mecha Sonic in Sonic 1


This is a hack created as a proof-of-concept by Iron Sonic of Sonic the Hedgehog for the Mega Drive in which the player plays as Mecha Sonic from Sonic & Knuckles.

The controls are the same as in the original Sonic 1, save for the ability to perform the Spin Dash.

Each sprite has been edited, and the player size and other aspects of the Sonic object have been changed to accommodate Mecha Sonic’s larger size.

Whilst the game is mostly playable, there are certain areas in the game that Mecha Sonic cannot complete due to his increased size; prime examples of this include Spring Yard Zone and Scrap Brain Zone.
