  • Can crash on Sega screen.
  • The Sega screen has the extra text *_=Beta=_* 022894. Also there is no rolling Sonic in the intro. The logo has a wave effect and has no flashing palette.
  • Title Screen has no Copyright.
  • Options screen cannot be accessed.
  • No flashing on the title card text.
  • No pause text or point display while paused.
  • Levels can be skipped by pressing Down or 1 while the game is paused. You can also press 2 to move Sonic anywhere.
  • There is a texture in the background near the first paddles in Toxic Pools, where there isn't one in the final.
  • When you run out of lives you get the ending. There are sprites of Sonic and Robotnik falling down it. Robotnik humurously spins out of control. This leads to a cutscene where both characters land in a volcano, which then sinks into the sea.
