Final Zone boss


In Final Zone, getting the final hit on Robotnik early in the round will allow a player to hit him again while the piston slowly retracts. This action loops his hit counter from 0 to 255, and interrupts the defeat sequence, making Robotnik restart his attack pattern. The only thing that can be done at this point is to fight on until Time Over or allow yourself to be killed and restart the stage.

Not fixed in any version.

Fall out of the Special Stage


Sometimes, you will fall out of the special stage for no reason what-so-ever. It is unknown why this occurs. Since the special stage wasn't ported directly from the original, no "glitch" objects appear outside of the stage, so the only way to exit the special stage is to reset the game.

Not fixed in any version.
