New Stages Discovered in Sonic 2 Remastered

Sunday, May 11th, 2014

Yes, we’re pretty late to this news but I think it’s worth sharing because I love hidden little oddities.

2 additional stages have been discovered lurking in the source code for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Remastered for iOS. The first is Egg Gauntlet Zone which basically acts as a boss rush. You can see footage of it below:

Sadly this zone is no longer playable as a recent update removed removed the stage’s art assets.

Next up is Proto Palace Zone. This stage recreates a faithful yet completable version of Hidden Palace Zone that was featured in the Simon Wai Sonic 2 Beta ROM. What’s more interesting about this stage is it can still be accessed to regular owners of the game. Here’s some instructions on how to do this:

1) Access the Sonic 2 level select code by tapping the letters in the SEGA logo from left to right, then put two fingers on the title screen.
2) Enter the debug code 01,09,09,02,01,01,02,04 into the sound test section.
3) Then follow this with this code: 03,03,03,0B,10,10,10,04

You can also check out footage of this zone in action below:

Sonic 2 Remastered Releasing Tomorrow; Hidden Palace Zone is Unlockable

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Christian “The Taxman” Whitehead returns once again with a Retro Engine-powered port of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Android and iOS devices. The new version of the 16 bit classic launches tomorrow and will be a free update for those who already own the existing port of Sonic 2 for these devices.

Along with the usual enhancements of a widescreen display and more accurate controls, Whitehead has seen fit to add Hidden Palace Zone as an unlockable bonus stage. This is not the Hidden Palace Zone from Sonic & Knuckles either; this is the version that was discovered in Sonic 2 Beta. Whitehead has obviously not left the stage incomplete and has given it a lovely makeover which now includes gimmicks like the water jet you can see above.

SEGA Announces a Load of New Mobile Games; Sonic 1 Remastered Included UPDATE

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

UPDATE

A few more details regarding the release of Sonic the Hedgehog Remastered: iOS users who purchased the previously available version of Sonic the Hedgehog will receive the remastered version in an update.

Also, the soundtrack is completely remastered in order to give players the highest quality version of the soundtrack possible. Christian “Taxman” Whitehead has said, “The arrangements are identical to the originals, using FM synthesis. But they have been put together in a DAW environment and given an actual mix as opposed to simply recording the existing music. The Drum samples are sourced from the original synthesiser so they’re super clean and crisp too.”

Thanks SEGABits.

ORIGINAL STORY

The Game Developers’ Conference has brought with it some great news for SEGA fans who use Android and iOS.

A new version of Sonic the Hedgehog will be released with widescreen support, solid 60fps gameplay and a new time attack mode brought to you by Christian Whitehead, the man behind the recent Sonic CD port.

No release date has been announced yet but a North American price-point of $2.99 has been confirmed. Rumours are also circulating that Sonic 2 will also be ported in this way.

Also announced are Puzzle Pirates which appears to be a pirate-themed MMO and House of the Dead Overkill: The Lost Files which appears to be a tailor-made for mobile gaming take of the Overkill formula.
