General comparisons

Final game

All early versions of Sonic 2 use a different title screen. Sonic and Tails are not animated, and the background is borrowed from Emerald Hill Zone, scrolling to the left in a similar manner to the original Sonic the Hedgehog. No menu system has been implemented by this point.

Sonic 2 final

The level select screen is a great deal bigger than it was in the Nick Arcade build, and uses Sonic 2 names. It's still a far cry from the final game though, and lists a number of strange levels in the wrong order. Still missing are Sky Chase Zone and Wing Fortress Zone. This screen also comes with its own theme now, rather than the silence heard in the Nick Arcade build and Sonic 1.
