The background of the game is a rendering of the checkerboard floor found in Green Grove Zone in the 16-bit game.


Gameplay screenshot.

The player controls Sonic the Hedgehog, and the objective of the game is to avoid a cannon which was located in the bottom right side of the screen which frequently shoots. The indented area of the ground contained a Bee-hive like enemy with a rotating ball. The player must destroy this enemy to collect Flickies. After enough Flickies are collected, the player will face Dr. Eggman in a battle similar to the Green Grove Zone boss. Sonic can be made to move faster if the "faster" button is held. A spinning roll can be used by pressing the "slow roll" button.
