Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine is a puzzle game for the Sega Game Gear and Sega Master System. It is similar to its 16-bit counterpart for the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis, but contains an additional Puzzle Mode that is not present in the Mega Drive version. This version was included as an unlockable game in Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut, and later as a default game in the compilation Sonic Mega Collection Plus (which itself featured in later compilations).

For information on the storyline and gameplay common to both versions of the game, see the article about the 16-bit version.

Puzzle Mode

Compile took the puzzle mode from Nazo Puyo, released a few months earlier, and added them to this version of Mean Bean Machine. The Puzzle Mode unique to this version requires the player to solve increasingly difficult puzzle challenges.
