- Back to: Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (prototype; 1993-11-03)/Comparisons.
All three Bonus Stages are incomplete in this build and are therefore disabled in regular play. When accessed from the level select, Sonic and Tails just fall to their deaths. They all display the full HUD, and don't have any title cards.
Half the background is missing and there aren't any objects. The foreground is also unfinished in this build.
The spheres inside the gumball machine are far less detailed and are all grey, save for a blue sphere in the back. They are also laid out symmetrically.
The spring platform at the bottom is a golden colour like the foreground walls, and is missing its springs. It is also intangible, so Sonic and Tails will just fall through it.
Glowing Spheres shares very little with the final Sonic & Knuckles. Even the graphics that exist here were replaced. When compared to Sonic 3C 0408, this Bonus Stage looks even less complete.
The Slot Machine Bonus Stage could be the most finished of the three. All the frames for the background are on display, but no animations.
The slot machine itself is laid out, but its graphics are lacking in detail and it doesn't work.
