``But first, let's take a look at some background information about Sonic, Shadow, and the Sonic Hacking Contest.``Sonic is a blue hedgehog who can run at super speed. He is the main protagonist of a series of video games developed by Sega since 1991. He has many friends and allies, such as Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Cream, Blaze, Silver, and more. He also has many enemies, such as Dr. Eggman, Metal Sonic, Chaos, Infinite, and more. One of his most notable rivals is Shadow, a black hedgehog who looks like him but has different abilities.``Shadow is an artificial hedgehog created by Professor Gerald Robotnik, Eggman's grandfather. He was designed to be the ultimate lifeform, with mysterious powers such as Chaos Control. He first appeared in Sonic Adventure 2 (2001), where he teamed up with Eggman to destroy humanity as revenge for killing his friend Maria. However, he later changed his mind after learning Maria's true wish was to protect the world. Since then, he has appeared in many other games as an antihero or an ally to Sonic.``The Sonic Hacking Contest is an event that started in 2002 as a way for hackers and modders to show off their skills and creativity by making hacks or mods based on Sonic games. The hacks or mods can be anything from changing graphics or music to adding new levels or characters. The entries are judged by a panel of experts and by public votes, and they can win trophies in various categories. The contest is usually held in Continuing the article from the previous table: `JoenickROS said that he was inspired by other hackers and modders, such as E-122-Psi, MarkeyJester, Clownacy, ValleyBell, flamewing, and more. He also said that he wanted to make his ROM hacks as fun and enjoyable as possible for the players. He said that he spent about a year working on Sonic 2: Return of Shadow, and that he was very proud of the result. He also thanked his supporters and fans for their feedback and encouragement.``What are the changes and additions in Sonic 2: Return of Shadow?

new music and updated music in sonic 2 return of shadow``New title screen and character selection


``The first thing you will notice when you start the ROM hack is the new title screen, which features Shadow's silhouette and a dark background. The title screen also has a new music track, which is a remix of Shadow's theme song from Sonic Adventure 2, "Throw It All Away".``When you press start, you will be taken to the character selection screen, where you can choose from four different characters: Shadow, Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles. Each character has their own sprite, icon, palette, and abilities. You can also choose to play as Metal Sonic or Amy by entering a cheat code on the title screen.``How to play screen and movesets


``Before you start playing, you will see a how to play screen that explains the basic controls and movesets for each character. Each character has their own moveset that differs from the original Sonic 2 game. For example, Shadow can use Chaos Control to teleport across gaps or enemies, Sonic can use the Drop Dash from Sonic Mania to gain speed after landing from a jump, Tails can fly and swim in water, Knuckles can glide and climb walls, Metal Sonic can use his jet engine to fly and shoot lasers, and Amy can use her hammer to attack and bounce.``The how to play screen also shows the special stages and bonus stages that you can access by collecting 50 rings and jumping into a giant ring at the end of each act. The special stages are the same as in Sonic 2, where you have to collect rings while avoiding bombs in a pseudo-3D environment. The bonus stages are different depending on the character you choose. For example, Shadow's bonus stage is based on Radical Highway from Sonic Adventure 2, where he has to grind on rails and avoid obstacles.``Cutscenes and zone transitions


``Another feature that makes Sonic 2: Return of Shadow stand out is the inclusion of cutscenes at the beginning and end of each act. The cutscenes show what happens before and after each zone, and how they are connected to each other. For example, the cutscene before Emerald Hill Zone shows Shadow escaping from Eggman's base in Wing Fortress Zone, while the cutscene after Emerald Hill Zone shows Shadow entering Chemical Plant Zone through a pipe.``The cutscenes also add some story elements to the ROM hack, such as why Shadow is fighting Eggman, what are his motives, and what are his relationships with other characters. The cutscenes also have dialogue boxes that show what the characters are saying or thinking.``New boss and level design


``Sonic 2: Return of Shadow also features a new boss and some changes in level design for some zones. The new boss is located in Massacre Temple Zone, which is a new zone that replaces Hidden Palace Zone. Massacre Temple Zone is based on Sandopolis Zone from Sonic & Knuckles, but with a darker and more sinister atmosphere. The boss is a giant stone statue that shoots fireballs and lasers at you. You have to hit its weak spot on its chest while avoiding its attacks.``Some of the other zones have some changes in level design that make them more challenging or interesting. For example, Chemical Plant Zone has some new paths and platforms that require you to use your character's abilities to reach them. Mystic Cave Zone has some new traps and enemies that make it more dangerous. Oil Ocean Zone has some new sections where you have to swim underwater or ride on oil slides. Metropolis Zone has some new gimmicks such as conveyor belts and crushers.``New Continuing the article from the previous table: `New music and updated music


``Sonic 2: Return of Shadow also features some new music tracks and some updated music tracks for some zones. The new music tracks are composed by JoenickROS himself, and they are based on various Sonic games or other sources. For example, Massacre Temple Zone has a new music track that is based on Sandopolis Zone Act 2 from Sonic & Knuckles, but with a more ominous tone. Wing Fortress Zone has a new music track that is based on Sky Chase Zone from Sonic 2, but with a more epic feel.``Some of the existing music tracks from Sonic 2 have been updated or remixed by JoenickROS to make them sound better or more fitting for the ROM hack. For example, Emerald Hill Zone has an updated music track that sounds more upbeat and cheerful. Chemical Plant Zone has a remixed music track that sounds more techno and futuristic. Mystic Cave Zone has a remixed music track that sounds more spooky and mysterious.``How to download and play Sonic 2: Return of Shadow?
