Sonic Hacking Contest 2013 Entries Now Available To Download

Sonic-Hacking-Contest-2013For several years now there has been a dedicated group of retro gamers expanding upon their favourite titles and creating all new adventures for classic consoles. The Sonic The Hedgehog ROM hacking community has grown tenfold since then and has even begun hosting annual competitions to find the best creations around, with 2013's entries holding a lot of promise.

As of today the submissions to the Sonic Hacking Contest 2013 have been made available to the public to download and vote upon. These consist of slight adjustments to the Mega Drive classics, remakes of the original games on other platforms, hacked modern console titles and even the originals with new modes of play introduced.

Amongst the array of Sonic The Hedgehog hacks this year are several notable additions such as Sally Acorn In Sonic The Hedgehog 2 - a graphics hack which introduces one of the lesser known characters into the mix, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Time Attack - a high score challenge to find the speediest players around, Metal Sonic Hyperdrive - a new adventure staring one of Robotnik's prior creations, and last but not least Sonic 1 CD Remake - the 16-bit classic ported to the Mega CD with an added CD soundtrack.

Our favourite entry, however, is Sonic 2 Recreation Part One - a new slant on the classic we all know and love with new zones, bosses and much much more.
