[edit] Information

The game is much like the 16-Bit edition of Sonic the Hedgehog with the same game mechanics. Rather than each zone containing 3 acts, in this edition there are only 2 plus a boss at the end. Additionally there is a Special Zone but, unlike the Mega Drive version, there is no Chaos Emerald to collect, it is purely for collecting rings and extra lives. The Chaos Emeralds are hidden in one of the first two acts of each zone.
