Brutal Sonic


Brutal Sonic is a fan-made hack of Sonic the Hedgedog with six brand-new levels and some entirely custom bosses for you to defeat. . Despite this hack looking very “vanilla” on the surface, it features a toally re-organized and cleaned up Sonic 1 engine. This allowed me to add more secrets speed up the development process towards the end significantly, and bring you this monstrosity of a hack.

5 difficulties for you to choose from:

  • Weak – For people who don’t want a challenge. No spike bug, standard gameplay.
  • Normal – The default difficulty. Spike bug is enabled, and all projectiles bounce.
  • Hard – For harder bosses. Identical to Normal, but with your rings being cleared before bossfights.
  • Nightmare – No. Rings.
  • ??? – ???


  • Code: Fuzzy, Vladikcomper, Giovanni, Selbi
  • Music: Jet, KCEXE, Vladikcomper, FoxConED, JK Fox, Oerg866, dust hill resident, Lightning_Splash, Amphobius
  • VEPS Sound Driver + MegaPCM 2: Vladikcomper
  • Graphics: Fuzzy, KCEXE, TheBlad768, funamusea
  • Levels: Fuzzy, Giovanni
  • Secret Text: Fengish
  • Some stuff like explosions and music are taken from open-sourced hacks like Sonic ERaZor. The other one I would rather not credit for obvious reasons, however I have credited the artist. I could not find good fitting music anywhere else.

Just Have Fun!
