The Sonic Hacking Contest 2015 is now live and we’ve been attempting to review as many of the hacks as we can. We probably won’t get a chance to look at them all but you can check out 9 of them in the following 3 round-up videos on our YouTube channel:
Our YouTube channel has a new featured called Hack Showcase which looks at various 16 bit Sonic hacks and gives them mini reviews. In our first episode we take a look at 3 hacks; Metal Sonic Overdrive, Sonic the Hedgehog Brother Trouble and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Armageddon Game:
SNES game Star Fox has been reverse-engineered to run on a Mega Drive by developer Stef at the romhacking.net forums.

Developed by SEGA’s Amusement Vision team, F-Zero GX was released in 2003 for the Gamecube under the supervision of Nintendo. The game was developed side-by-side with the rare arcade game F-Zero AX which includes exclusive tracks and a focus on timed gameplay. The arcade version was developed on the Triforce board which was jointly developed by Nintendo, SEGA and Namco.
In a bizarre turn of events, hackers have discovered that the complete version of F-Zero AX is hidden deep within F-Zero GX and is now accessible via action replay codes which you can get below. You can also see the game in action via the following video:
