In an era where hit games almost always only came on Nintendo or Sega’s 8-bit systems, it was often intriguing to think about what your favorite game would look and sound like had it come out on the rival console. Well, some talented programmers are building the Capcom NES classic Megaman II on the Sega Master system, and so far it’s looking very promising.
Sonic the Hedgehog is perhaps one of the most memorable and exciting games in console gaming history. As we’ve looked at the best Megaman Hacks before, I thought why not take a look at some of the amazing Sonic the Hedgehog hacks that are out there. These are just a few of the many great hacks out there for Genesis and other classic consoles. There’s even a 8-bit NES Sonic in the list!
You can grab a Sega emulator and get any of these games up and running without messing with patches or anything like that. I won’t go into Emulators too much here, but I do recommend Gens/GS if you don’t know where to start.
In the 2000’s there were a number of Sonic hacking/remake contests. Most of these games are winners or runners up from that awesome contest. You can find lots of info on these and other hacks over at sonicretro.org.
