Sonic Mega Mix – Sonic 1 Megamix
Sonic the Hedgehog Megamix (commonly shortened to Sonic Megamix) is a work-in-progress multiperson disassembly modification of the original Sonic the Hedgehog videogame for the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis, developed by Team Megamix and more recently moved to the Sega Mega-CD.
The game features the ability to play as one of five different characters: Sonic the Hedgehog, Mighty the Armadillo, Shadow the Hedgehog, Miles “Tails” Prower, and Knuckles the Echidna.
It is an extensive reworking of the original game, featuring new art, music, abilities, layouts, and other things.
South Island. A magnificent land; one that is not bound by restrictions such as time.
15 years have passed since Sonic the Hedgehog’s first plight against the nefarious Dr. Eggman (originally known as Dr. Ivo Robotnik in English localisations).
Ever since, the two sides have clashed nonstop in a variety of settings, with the eventual outcome always being Sonic’s victory. Both sides have gained both new allies and new enemies; some helpful, others… not so much.
Naturally, throughout this time, Sonic has learned a few new techniques, which he uses to further stifle Eggman’s plans of world domination.
And so, the world is safe – but always just out of Eggman’s grasp.
Some say history repeats itself.
In this case, the statement is proven true, as Eggman returns to South Island, in hopes that he can obtain the land’s powerful Chaos Emeralds, and finally put forth a solid step in conquering the planet.
As he arrives on the island, he brings with him a single Chaos Emerald – one that had been missing, and had upset the natural balance of the island for decades beforehand.
The others were trapped in an alternate dimension; one which only very few could enter, and from which even fewer returned.
Of course, Eggman isn’t very good at keeping his plans secret (a big reason why they’re foiled so easily).
As a result, Sonic hears of this, and readies his travel back to South Island.
With him, he brings two allies: one being Mighty the Armadillo, a longtime friend of his (though they had not spoken in quite some time); and the other being Shadow the Hedgehog who, after finally getting over his angst (at least for the moment), felt like teaching Eggman a thing or two about trying the same thing twice.
And besides that, he had never seen South Island before; he had heard things about it, certainly, but never saw it for himself.
So, he figured, why not?
And so, the three begin their trek of South Island, each taking their own unique abilities with them, and going their separate ways, each in search of the remaining Chaos Emeralds, and of Eggman, in hopes that once he is defeated, he will finally abandon his plans of world domination.
But, then again, that’s not very likely to happen.
We can all dream, I suppose.
The player has the choice to play through Sonic Megamix as one of five characters: Sonic the Hedgehog, Mighty the Armadillo, Shadow the Hedgehog, Miles “Tails” Prower, or Knuckles the Echidna.
Each character has their own specific abilities, while some share common abilities.
Sonic Mega Mix – Sonic 2 Megamix
Sonic 2 Megamix is the first installment in the Megamix series of hacks by Team Megamix, followed by Sonic Megamix.
It was created by Tweaker for submission in the 4th Hacking Contest.
It features edited palettes and music.
Future plans were to revamp the hack, including moving it to a split disassembly and revamping the level layouts; the former of which has already been completed.
It was also to contain various pieces of original music, as well as imports from other games, such as Sonic Advance 2, or Sonic Jam.
Sonic Mega Mix – Sonic 1 Mega Blitz
Eggman was trying to steal the Master Emerald from Hidden Palace Zone, but he accidentally got the green Super Emerald!
He plugged it into his new machine that would blow up Green Hill Zone, Marble Zone, Spring Yard Zone, Labyrinth Zone, Star Light Zone, and his own base, Scrap Brain Zone!
Sonic the Hedgehog suddenly smashed a window and jumped in! Eggman quickly flipped the switch, but suddenly the Super Emerald discharged the beam, shooting Sonic and Eggman along with the beam!
When the beam hit the zones, they didn’t blow up, but had been blitzed out!
Sonic must destroy the machine to restore the zones!
The gimmick in this game is semi-creative and fairly well implemented. As each zone has been “blitzed out,” the color pallets has been swapped.
But that’s a minor change. The main difference is that each Act has its own gimmick.
The first Act 1 is a “blitzed out” version of the original. The stage is redesigned completely.
Act 2 is a hard mode of the original, mainly removing rings and most checkpoint as well as some added obstacle.
Act 3 is a “Boss Blitz.” The bosses are unedited, just the stages an arena.
You get to skip the whole stage, and there are very few rings.
