Metrotropic Beach Zone - A Mod for Sonic Mania

A short and sweet mod you'll want to play on a rainy day

"Metrotropic Beach Zone" is a 1-Act mod that was originally made for the "Hell of Green Hills" modding contest. The main gimmick here was the smooth transition from day to night via palette editing. Level design isn't perfect, but I think you'll find everything else makes up for it.

Hope you enjoy!

I ripped the CD stage graphics from the 2011 port, and pretty much did everything in the mod

    Hey! Just wanted to say, great mod. One thing though, why does the UI disappear in the second part of act 1?

    This Mod is better than anything I could do. And im going to keep this short. The visuals of this mod are amazing, level design is great and there is so many things that make this mod an amazing mania mod!

  • WOW!!! This mod is a true landmark moment in Sonic Mania modding. After witnessing a drought in quality Mania mods, Cyber1204 knocks it out of the park with this one. The visuals and effects are spectacular and the level design is excellent. This wonderfully showcases a brilliant use of Mania's assets and it's absolutely a technical marvel.

    Playing Metrotropic Beach Zone will bring back that genuine feeling of excitement and spectacle you experienced playing Sonic Mania for the first time. 

    I wholeheartedly believe this mod would make Taxman, Stealth, PagodaWest, and the whole Mania team proud. Simply outstanding work.

    God. this mod is amazing! The level design was good and it was fun playing it. My favorite part has to be that Intro because wow, I have never seen a cutscene like that for a Mania Mod!  9/10

    Is that intro for every hell of green hills? I just looked at it and went "what the fuck?" the entire time it was shown and I'm wondering how long it took.

    And everything in the mod is amazing, from the gimmicks used with the seltzer water to the palettes is phenominal. I honestly couldn't ask for a better submission.
