- Back to: Sonic Blast.
There are only a few differences between both the Game Gear and Master System versions of Sonic Blast. Unlike previous 8-bit titles such as Sonic Chaos where the Master System version was made first, Sonic Blast was originally released on the Game Gear and later ported to the Master System, albeit in a quick fashion as seen bellow.

The title screen wasn't optimized for the Master System port. The developers simply added a grey border around the title screen. Additionally, the game is called G Sonic in Japan and the title screen was changed to accommodate.
The title cards and results screens were not optimized for the Master System's larger screen as well.
The Master System has a far smaller colour palette than the Game Gear, leading to a very noticeable downgrade in visual quality. For example, backgrounds are much simpler, lacking gradients.
Like the title screen, the Special Stages were also not optimized for the Master System's larger screen.
