Sonic the Hedgehog 2 XL is an incredible ROM hack that replaces the iconic gold rings with fattening onion rings. Collect a few and Sonic becomes fat. Collect too many, and Sonic dies of a heart attack.
Bwahahaha this is brilliant!! My sonic became utterly useless at 38 rings !! :( So funny!
It's nearly impossible to collect the chaos emeralds in this. To get 50 rings each act without having a heart attack is so difficult. Fortunately, I'm too busy laughing my head off to care.
I've seen rom hacks before, but nothing nearly as creative as this in a long time. The only other one that's really piqued my interest is a Earthbound rom hack that changes the story into a fully-fledged mini-RPG. Still need to play that.
