Sonic 1 Tag Team Adventure

By Jdpense

Creator's Description

Hello, everyone it’s me Jdpense, the guy known for terrible hacks like the Classic Heroes rip offs (S3&K Tag Team), unplayable gimmick hacks that serve no purpose (S3&K Choatix Edition), and forgettable hacks that not too many people cared for (Chaos Adventure).

This hack is yet another rip off hack of Classic Heroes, but now there is a 4th player added! This hack is a celebration hack for my 10 years of hacking Sonic games since 2010, and I saw this year’s contest is happening earlier than usual. As a foresight, I decided to switch to Sonic 1 to keep things simple.


  • 6-Button Pad support
  • SEGA Team Player support
  • Ability to play as 4 characters in game at once (with their own AI)
  • 3 Extra Characters added with their own abilities and movesets

  • Ability to swap between players by pressing the Y Button
  • Ability to change your character by pressing the X Button
  • New Menus added with SRAM Functionality
  • Pause Menu Added
  • Level Select: Up, Down, Left, Right, A
