Welcome to the Fan Spotlight, a segment that shines on creative works in the Sonic community that you should check out.
Over at Sonic Retro, member ColinC10 has made a brand new ROM hack that tests not only your time attacking skills, but your boss killing skills as well. “Robotnik’s Revenge” is a Genesis ROM hack that pits you against every single boss from both Sonic 1 & 2. Back to back, you are presented with these familiar challenges inside the Death Egg, a design reminiscent of the version of the Death Egg found in the “Sonic 2 Long Version” hack. The hack is incredibly addicting, as your previous experience with these bosses leaves you coming back for more if just so happen to die. I died a few times near the end and kept telling myself, “I know that I can beat this game! I’ve done it a thousand times!” Then, I kept playing.
The hack offers a time attack mode (unlimited lives) and a survival mode (with lives). You can play with Sonic or Tails in both modes. Please, give it a play, because it is really cool to see the Sonic 1 bosses implemented into the Sonic 2 engine.
