Now this is really cool!
Frosty Flytrap, an active member in the Nitrome community, has been playing around with the the Enemy 585 sprites making a spin off title called Happy Jump Land.
For those not in the know, Enemy 585 is themed around characters in a traditional platform game. We hinted that the world was called "Happy Jump Land" in the title and the intro to the game showed it as a platform game.
It was mostly a homage to Mario but there were a few nods to Sonic there too. This was just an animation in Enemy 585 (which is actually not a platform game) but it is this that Frosty Flytrap is trying to recreate and we'd say, judging by the video, that he's doing a pretty good job!
We did toy with the idea ourselves of showing the other side of the story but never got to it so it's great to see someone tackle it!
