Heyo!

I'm sorta back and I have something I wanted to release for people to mess around with.

Introducing...

Sonic&Knuckles+

A mod taken from another piece of work that I'll be porting later. It allows you play vanilla SRB2 with Sonic and Knuckles in a whole other way.
You'll get the taste of the character switching mechanics, revised gameplay and new character specific power-ups!



1. Sonic's Abilities & Uncurling:

Sonic's thok ability has been replaced with the jump boost and charged drop dash.

Jump Boost: This is a vanilla ability that allows the player to jump higher depending on how fast they're going.

Charged Drop Dash: After jumping into the air, press and hold the jump button to charge your drop dash.
Keep holding down the jump button until you land on the ground to unleash the energy you charged up, causing you to roll forward at a certain speed.

Amount of speed gained is proportional to time spent charging.
Extra note: Turning into super sonic restores Sonic's original thok ability.


Uncurling: Character's can now uncurl when rolling on the ground or off a cliff. Simply tap the spin button to do so.

Extra note: Just like in vanilla holding onto the spin button when rolling off of a platform and onto the ground will keep you curled up and rolling.



2. Character Switching:

Press the custom 1 button to switch using Sonic or Knuckles.

Switching characters while airbourne will trigger a unique move.
Note: You can only switch characters in the air once!
UPDATE: You can keep switching characters while airbourne so long as you jump off of walls and let go off of objects that carry you!


>>NEW FEATURE<<

You can now perform a Homing Attack Switch and fire off Knuckles as a missile!

To perform the first move press the custom 1 button when switching from Sonic to Knuckles in the air, this will automatically home you in on the closest enemy.

To perform the missile move, switch from Knuckles to Sonic in the air, if you're near enemy and you press the custom 1 button, Knuckles who was gliding around you will seek to destroy that enemy!


3. Character Specific Power-Ups:

In-game you can earn power-ups specific to Sonic and Knuckles by defeating a number of enemies.

Destroy five enemies to summon a "POWER-UP"!
The power-up rewards the character who defeated the most enemies out of 5.
E.g. If Sonic defeats 3 enemies and Knuckles defeats 2, Sonic will be rewarded as he destroyed 3/5 while Knuckles only destroyed 2/5.

In order from left to right:
1) Speed Boost (Sonic) - Sonic gains a speed boost

2) Hyper Thok Ability (Sonic) - allows Sonic to perform a charged thok action. Hold down the custom action 1 button while spindashing to charge, once fully charged press the spin button in mid-air to perform a hyper thok.

3) Glide Plus (Knuckles) - Knuckles gains a jump height boost and is now able to glide faster than before.

4) S.T.O.M.P (Knuckles) - allows Knuckles to perform a stomp action that can either stun or destroy bots. Press the spin button after to jumping to perform this move.

- Hugging Rosy crashes the game, so don't let her hug you even if it's tempting.

- Charged Drop Dash can be performed on the surface of goop when not sinking in it.

- You can cancel out character switching change and animation by spinning, jumping or pressing the custom 1 button during the change.

- If a character has all of their character specific power-ups then collecting an the power-up item will reward them with points added to their score.

- Power-Up's are not usable in boss levels or special stages.

- Switching from Super Sonic while floating to Knuckles will still trigger your character switch move.

- Hyperthok can be used when SuperSonic is floating.
