Sonic the Hedgehog The Screen Saver (ソニック・ザ・ヘッジホッグ・ザ・スクリーンセーバー) is a 1996 program by Sega for the PC featuring Sonic art, music and icons for customizing the user's Windows environment. The program is bundled with the North American and European copies of Sonic & Knuckles Collection and sold as a stand-alone product in Japan.
The screen saver features Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Eggman sprites that animate between Sonic pictures. If the user chooses, they can play music from Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sonic & Knuckles and the Japanese version of Sonic CD, though the latter only features music from the present and past versions of each level. Some versions of the North American version may also contain music from the Good and Bad Future levels.
