Sonic the Hedgehog 3C (prototype 0408)/Comparisons/IceCap Zone

Back to: Sonic the Hedgehog 3C (prototype 0408)/Comparisons.

As a Sonic the Hedgehog 3 zone, IceCap Zone has very few differences between the final Sonic 3 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles. The differences listed here are primarily bugs.

When Tails first descends while playing as Sonic and Tails together, his graphics are screwed up: the snowboard intro overwrites Tails' tiles with the snowboard's, and when the snowboard disappears, Tails' tiles should load. However, Tails' AI doesn't allow this to happen fast enough, and thus proceeds to draw Tails with some of the snowboard's tiles still remaining. Only when Tails lands does the tile swap complete, and Tails return to normal.[1]

Curiously, this didn't happen in Sonic 3 final.

The floating icicle spheres in one of Knuckles' routes can hurt Super Sonic, just like they did in Sonic 3.
