I’m on an 8-bit Sonic binge as of late, aren’t I? Wait, who am I kidding? I always am.
A SEGA Master System hack, Sonic 2 LD, a title playing on Retro’s HD Sonic 2 remake, by doc eggfan at Sonic Retro is probably my favorite project at that forum. The project’s goal is to take the Sonic 2 levels for the Genesis and put them in the Sonic 2 Master System ROM. A novel concept, considering that I’ve always wondered why SEGA made different levels for the Master System version (aside from making Aqua Lake Zone, aka “the best zone ever” – ride that shuffle beat).
Doc Eggfan recently released a new screenshot of his work-in-progress, 8-bit Emerald Hill. Hit the break for the screenshot. Warning: Contents May Be Awesome.
