Our coverage of Sonic Hacking Contest 2015 runs foward with another entry spotlight: Kirby in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 by LoneDevil!
Kirby in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 by Lone Devil (Also known as Darkon360) for the Sega Genesis/Megadrive. It features Kirby and Waddle Dee whom replaces Sonic and Tails as the lead protagonists. Kirby can inhale monitors and most enemies but cannot copy their abilities. Lives function as health points and the only way to obtain them is grabbing every 50+ Rings, Checkpoints/Lampposts, Randomized 1Up Monitors, or Score every 50000+ points. The hack also features 4 difficulty modes. Hidden Palace is restored but only as a 1 Act Zone for Kirby, located somewhere in Mystic Cave Act 2.
BEGINNER: Rings and Lives function exactly like the original Sonic. Not recommended.
EASY: Health based Lives, Casual players only.
