Sonic Jam (Game.com)/Development
From Sonic Retro
- Back to: Sonic Jam (Game.com).
Sonic Jam (Game.com) has gone through a few changes over its development process. A couple of the changes are noted below.
Early game design
These images display different aspects that were changed before the final game was compiled.
Looks like a port of Sonic 3D: Flickies' Island was planned but dropped. This image can be found in a promotional booklet included with the system.
An earlier screenshot of Sonic & Knuckles which shows a different-looking Mushroom Hill Zone and an earlier HUD. Found on the back of the box.
An earlier screenshot of Sonic 2 which not only shows an earlier HUD and Emerald Hill Zone, but an earlier Knuckles sprite. Found on the back of the box.
A screenshot of the Special Stage, which shows that the character sprites were much smaller than they are in the final. Found on the back of the box.
An early "Act Select" screen which shows Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles.
A cutscene similar to this is in the Mega Drive version of Sonic 3 but seems to have been removed. The Game.com port simply starts the player at the beginning of the level in a standing position.
Sonic running through a vastly different Angel Island Zone, complete with the early HUD.
