I've been trying to make a half-decent Sonic 2 SMS since 2015, and I feel like I've made something half decent for once. :p Sonic 2 Zen Island is a level, palette, and music hack of Sonic 2 for the Sega Master System.
-The title screen, level preview, and score tally screens now have black backgrounds instead of dark blue ones.
-Each act now has its own palette (Generally it's a day-to-night cycle over the three acts in a zone).
-The signpost now shows Sonic where Robotnik used to be and vice versa.
-The signpost are now uses black in place of yellow.
-Underground Zone Acts 1-3, Sky High Zone Acts 1-3, Aqua Lake Zone Acts 1 and 3, and Green Hills Zone Act 1 have completely different tile layouts (Some with different level sizes).
-Sonic's sprites have been edited to make him more expressive.
-Loops are glitchy for some reason (Sonic inexplicably goes in the wrong directions while on the loop).
-There's also no hang-gliders, but that's because most object layouts are incomplete.
-Each third act (Sans Scrambled Egg Zone and Crystal Egg Zone) now uses a previously unused song.
-The Level Complete and Boss themes are lower pitched.
-The credits are altered to include the people listed in the "Thanks to following people" section.
-Finish object layouts
-Finish tile layouts for GMZ, SEZ, and CEZ.
-Create new music rather than altering the music already in the game.
-Make GHZ the first zone.
-Make UGZ the fourth zone.
-Edit the credits to include the people who helped with this hack that aren't already in them.
-Glitch (For making Aspect Edit, the program I used to edit the layouts and palettes, along with taking pictures of the level layouts)
