Master System/Game Gear version comparisons
Unlike the previous two 8-bit Sonic games, the Master System version of Sonic Chaos has a title screen that better fits the expanded resolution.
The player select screen is different. The Game Gear has dedicated portraits of Sonic and Tails, while the Master System just uses their walking sprites on a loop.
The title cards are also optimised for the different resolutions.
As are the score cards, although the lack of space means "Continues" are reduced to "Conti'" in the Game Gear version.
Game Gear localisation comparisons
In Japan, Sonic Chaos is known as Sonic & Tails. As a result, the two have slightly different title screens.
For reasons unknown, the Western versions of Sonic Chaos use a different font for the title cards (similar in design to Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and do not show the act number. The Japanese font is still used for the score card.
The decision to change the title card comes with consequences. In the West, Gigalopolis Zone becomes "Gigapolis Zone".
