The lights are on
It seems that some Sonic fans are none too pleased about Dimps’ handling of their beloved character. The Sonic 4 developer, whose other games include Sonic Rush and the Sonic Advance series, has a reputation within the Sonic community for an overemphasis on speed boosts and homing attacks. As part of a ROM hacking contest, a particularly disgruntled fan has decided to take out their frustrations in a creative way.
As Destructoid points out, SOTI’s hacked version of Sonic 2 includes speed boosts in every level, mismatched sound effects, and a purposefully easy to abuse homing attack.Check out the trailer for the hack below, or visit this site to download it and play it yourself (at your own risk, of course).
