Sonic: The Lost Land 2 Title Screen

Sonic - The Lost Land 2, is a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Mega Drive. The game is comprised of 11 levels, each filled with dangers you must overcome in order to stop the plans of the maniacal Dr. Eggman. Only palettes, some slight layout changes and various other small modifications have been made for the time being, since this hack is on hold for Sonic - The Lost Land.

The Story
The Lost Land. A beautiful island paradise, once inhabited by creatures known only as the ancients. After managing to overthrow the maniacal Eggman's previous plot, Sonic stumbles across a hidden part of the Lost Land. Unfortunately, Eggman found it first, and has already set up base to work on his next evil plot. With Shadow gone, having left the Lost Land after helping out beforehand, it's only up to the blue hedgehog to save the world from whatever Eggman is planning.

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.

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 succeed?

The Levels
Eleven 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:

Starlit Shore
A beautiful, tranquil seaside resort which is now under seige from the maniacal Dr. Eggman. Destroy the evil fiend's badniks and rescue your friends.

Ancient Amazon
The long-decayed ruins of an ancient temple, constructed many millennia ago. It has long since submerged into a sparkling lake. Remember, you can only survive for 30 seconds underwater, so if your air supply is low, replenish it with air bubbles, or return to the surface.

Sunken Subway
The ancient temple has led to an intricate subway system, used by the Ancients several thousand years ago. Over the millennia, the accumulated rainfall has flooded the subway, making it more dangerous to travel through. Air pockets may help you prevent drowning. What is Eggman after?

Magma Mountain
The Lost Land's only remaining active volcano, a place once believed the Ancients had resided somewhere nearby. Eggman is up to something, and it may have something to do with the Ancients. Be sure not to get toasted by the lava flowing through the magma filled caves!

Pinball Plaza
A glittering casino paradise, filled with flippers and slot machines. A gambler's heaven, this resort has been taken over by Eggman and his minions. Take back the city by any means possible!

Poison Plant
The chemical production plant of an ancient civilization, now believed to be extinct. The city was long abandoned after a terrible accident within the facility. Eggman has reactivated the pumps, filling the city with a dangerous blue liquid. Shut off the pumps before it is too late!

Daybreak Docks
The sun has not long come up over this once abandoned refinery. Cross the gangways and ride the elevators to reach new areas. Eggman has caused a lot of damage by dumping the waste into the ocean. Find the controls and stop the pollution from continuing.

Techno Tower
The mechanical city which Eggman uses for his dirty ambitions. It is here that all of his badniks are manufactured. Ride the pistons and gears to find the evil scientist. If you see them, ride the screws to new heights. What the hell is Eggman up to?

Air Assault
After destroying Eggman's badnik production factory, he has gotten desperate and is attempting escape. After hours of scaling the city, it is night once again. Watch your step as you tackle the skies, which are filled with badniks, intent on halting your progress. This area's dangerous, so be careful not to fall. It's a long way down...

Flying Fort
Ascending even higher, you've found Eggman's flying fortress. You have him cornered. Gain access to the inside by scaling the outer deck. Dodge the artillery fire of automated weapons and badniks. Fight it out with Fatso and make him pay for what he's done to the Lost Land!

Cosmic Colony
The Doc has fled to space after his flying fortress was downed. Eggman built this colony some time ago, its design similar to ARK. He's got something planned, so be careful around here. The fate of the world is on your shoulders. Good luck!
