General comparisons

There is no Sega logo in the Master System version, likely owing to the fact that on original systems, a Sega jingle is built into the BIOS.

More of the map is visible on the Master System, and there are slight colour changes.

Sonic has an entirely different and slightly smaller set of sprites on the Game Gear, to better suit the lower resolution. This is the only Sonic Master System-to-Game Gear conversion where such measures were taken - the game's sequels have identical sprites in both versions.
