Sonic: The Lost Land
Sonic - The Lost Land is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega
Mega Drive. The game is comprised of 7 levels, each filled with
traps and badniks intent on bringing down Sonic once and for all.
There is also a special realm consisting of 6 Chaos Emeralds. If
you have collected at least 50 rings by the time you finish the
level, you will see a giant ring. Jump into it to be taken to the
secret realm. A dynamic palette system is set up, making each act
load its own palette (à la Knuckles' Chaotix), as well as a dynamic
music system, allowing each act to load its own music.
The Lost Land. A beautiful island paradise, once inhabited
by creatures known only as the ancients. Unfortunately, it has
recently come under threat by the evil Dr Eggman. Sonic knows that
Eggman must be stopped, and with the help of Shadow, who is
contemplating his future, he sets off to put an end to Eggman's
Sonic - The Lost Land allows for two playable characters,
with the evil Dr Eggman as the antagonist.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic is a blue, 15-year-old hedgehog who lives on the planet
Earth. He has the ability to run at supersonic speeds, hence his
name. He is always running all over the world, rarely stopping for
anything. He is carefree and relaxed; however, he is also very
intolerant of injustice, and he will do anything he can to help
those in need. He has also got a quick wit, short temper, and a
fairly large ego.
Shadow the Hedgehog
Shadow is the ultimate life form experiment, a joint-creation of
Professor Gerald Robotnik and Black Doom aboard the space colony
ARK. His exact age isn't approximated, but he is assumed to be
around 50 years old. Once hungry for revenge after the death of
Maria, Gerald's granddaughter, he is now aware of his past, and who
he "is." He prefers to be a loner, but he occasionally tags along
with Sonic and his friends when Eggman is up to no good. He is
black, with red stripes down his spines and arms. He uses his
ability, Chaos Control, to harness the powers of the Chaos Emeralds
to enhance his natural abilities. While he is unable to move very
quickly on his own, he possesses fire-powered jet skates, which
allow him to move much faster than he would be able to without
Please note: Shadow is not available in the current or previous
releases of this hack.
Dr Ivo Robotnik (EGGMAN)
With an IQ of 300, and self-proclaimed the greatest scientific
genius in the world, Eggman stops at nothing in his attempts at
world conquest. While his plans are constantly foiled by Sonic,
this only makes him more determined to conquer the world. Will he
Seven zones are in the hidden area of the Lost Land, each
of them filled with many traps and dangers, intent on putting a
stop to Sonic's heroic efforts. These levels are:
A tranquil hillside area by a sparkling lake. Feel the grass under
your feet as you run along. Loop-de-loops are fun, but don't land
on the spikes. Ouch!
Watch your step as you tackle the lava-filled marble ruins of an
ancient civilisation. Many of the traps are still active, so be
Bounce around on the many springs while avoiding the traps and
badniks that are present in this lush mountainside garden. Ride
platforms to great heights, but when the time comes, will you be
courageous enough to take a leap of faith? Whee!
A mysterious labyrinth that has been flooded with water. You can
only survive for 30 seconds underwater. Be sure to grab an air
bubble or return to the surface if you're running low on
Construction has long been abandoned in this magnificent city,
located high in the sky. Ride the loop-de-loops and platforms, all
the while keeping a lookout for any traps or badniks. If you fall,
it'll be to your doom, so watch out!
You've found Eggman's base, where the EggRobo has fled. You've got
him in your sights, but what's this? A barrier prevents you from
getting to the final arena. You'll have to search for another way
This is it. The final arena, where you will fight EggRobo to decide
the fate of the world. Don't let him succeed! Good luck!
