Various differences


  • The US region title screen still says "Featuring Espio the Chameleon" unlike in the final version.
  • To climb walls with Knuckles, you must hold the jump button, otherwise he will jump off the wall (much like Vector in the Final).
  • Knuckles climbing sprites are different.
  • Different end signpost.
  • Different Special Stage art.
  • When you call your partner, your sprite is in front of their's. Heavy looks so much smaller by comparison.
  • When a special stage is successfully completed, the results screen says "Got The Holy Ring" instead of "Got Chaos Ring."


  • Newtrogic High is mostly intact, however the Combi Catcher is not yet working. Instead, the makeshift NPC SELECT screen from Time Attack mode is used after your level is chosen.
  • The light switch is not present in Amazing Arena, nor is the mini-boss. However, you can complete the level regardless.
