- Back to: Sonic the Hedgehog 3C (prototype 0408)/Comparisons.
Angel Island Zone is the first of the Zones from Sonic the Hedgehog 3, so the differences listed here primarily involve Knuckles.
The rock in AIZ1 that in S3K final always breaks when you're Knuckles (to prevent you from going to Sonic's boss arena as Knuckles) doesn't break in this build, ergo Knuckles can go to Sonic's boss arena. However the boss always loads in Knuckles' arena, so you get stuck.
Act 1 will still play Act 2 music when returning from a Bonus Stage after the Zone has been set on fire, like in Sonic 3.
This Star Post is present in Sonic 3 final, but not in Sonic 3 & Knuckles final. It doesn't seem to be necessary in this version; if you die without triggering the Star Post, you get brought back to the start of the act.
Knuckles can't seem to climb up this wall properly -- he keeps falling off when he reaches the top.
Yeow! These spikes nailed me. They're shifted upwards for the final.
Another Star Post is missing.
Knuckles' route in Act 2 still has its object layouts from Sonic 3.
