Final game

When the game resets after the ending, or if you return to the level select screen from the Emerald Shrine, the SEGA screen and menus will turn pink. Going into normal gameplay will rectify the issue.

Final game

Playing on a Japanese system now removes the trademark symbols from the SEGA logo and title screen, but Tails' life counter still doesn't become "Miles" even though the results tally changes to "Miles".

When locked-on to Sonic 1 or any other game, you will get the "NO WAY!" screen as normal, but you cannot play Blue Sphere yet.

Final game

The Mushroom Hill Act 2 boss's starting position is still shifted to the left slightly from the final. This allows you to score endless hits on the boss without destroying the satellite, and the battle won't start until you hit the satellite itself, thus it was changed in the final so the player cannot do this. The first 7 hits on the boss will count towards defeating it after destroying the satellite.

If you have all the Chaos Emeralds when accessing Hidden Palace via a giant ring, the game will think you have none, and thus won't convert them into Super Emeralds.

Defeating the Death Egg final boss as Knuckles will play a glitched version of Sonic's ending with Knuckles in place of Sonic. In the final, the game resets to the SEGA screen.
