Sonic ERaZor

Sonic ERaZor is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog (16-bit) created by Selbi. This hack is unlike many other hacks, featuring a heavy in-game story line, unique challenges, and never seen before gameplay mechanics. These elements are often somehow related to explosions, which is why this hack is sometimes called "What if Michael Bay directed Sonic 1".

When first released back in early 2010, Selbi stated that this hack has no goal whatsoever and any ideas he came up with just went in. Today's releases have a lot more structure and thought out gameplay elements. The difficulty has been steadily decreased between the different versions, mostly due to some negative feedback regarding the first releases, although they all have an above average difficulty, and is therefore regarded by many as quite interesting and challenging, if not frustrating.

A notable aspect about this hack is that it contains many cutscenes, chapter screens and story screens. The game's first scene after the title screen is entirely a cutscene.

[Winner of the Sonic Hacking Contest 2012]

Due to a bug with the emulator, this game is currently tagged as a mod of Sonic 3 & Knuckles (instead of Sonic 1)!

OK, thanks. I'll just use the ROM then. Great hack though!

Unfortunately no. There's nothing I can do though, as the emulator provided by Sega for Steam doesn't work when it uses Sonic 1 as base DLC. I had to set it to Sonic 3 to "fool" it into working properly.

Thank GOODNESS there are no lives, otherwise I would have unsubscribed not too far into this mod.

I've got Hedgehog Abuse Simulator (see my other hacks), which I'm still planning to continue, but couldn't really find the time or motivation yet. Here's hoping it'll return at some point.

Ok then. I also found out that the final level is just after the end of the tutorial, and they are both connected. Cheeky. BTW, are you working o n a new hack?
Selbi  [author] Jun 9, 2016 @ 9:39am 
Well-aware of that bug, but because it isn't game-breaking (plus that I never found the cause...) I've decided to leave it in. And yes, those spaces are annoying.

There are some minor graphical quirks, and also a glitch where if you somehow land on a monitor without breaking it, you'll stand in the air with the balancing animation. Can you fix these? Or is the monitor glitch intentional?

Also, the music is absolutely rocking!

Also, I beat the Black Challenge!

Are you annoyed at these gigantic spaces yet?
