Sonic Generations: Aquarium Park Stage Mod Showcase (SonicWindBlue)


Sonic Colors offered very creative zones for Sonic to dash through, but many of them were built in mind to support the Wisp mechanic. This allowed the Blue Blur to morph into a laser, rocket or even a drill! Turning into a drill was used heavily in the zone Aquarium Park. Within bodies of water, Sonic can use the Yellow Wisp to turn into a drill and this made up a good chunk of the level design in the zone.

I say all of this, considering how difficult it could be porting them into Sonic Generations. With only two Wisp Powers (and only one usable for Modern Sonic), it’s hard to make levels from Colors feel natural within Generations. A mod recently released that has Aquarium Park from Colors playable within Generations and after watching the above video (captured by SonicWindBlue), I’m impressed how fun the level looks.

Minor changes to level design make the levels look like a blast to run through in Generations and higher resolution assets being created/used for the mod give it a sharp look. It’s a great level mod and I encourage you give it a shot if you have a PC version of Generations installed. Below are system requirements for the PC version of Generations.
