Sonic the Hedgehog (Amiga) is a canceled port of Sonic the Hedgehog. From the few screens released the "port" seems to be along the lines of the 8-bit game and have original level design. The graphics seem to be redrawn also.
|“||Recently, Sega decided to port Sonic to arcades (it’s not usual to see a home console title ported to coin-op!) and to grant the license to US GOLD for the creation of [Sonic 1] in various computer formats. I doubt that on computer (except for the PC) they will achieve the same levels of speed that you can see on console, however, judging from the photos that arrived in the office, it seems that they’re doing very well!||„|
