Examples

S2 supersonicglitch.png

Attempting to transform into Super Sonic after hitting a signpost or prison capsule results in Sonic "walking" in mid air, and becoming unresponsive to controls. If Sonic moves off the right side of the screen before this happens the score tally will appear and the game continues on to the the next level as normal. If he does not leave the screen he will get stuck with no way of ending the level.

The player can't wait for a time over, because passing a signpost stops the timer. The only thing to do without debug in this situation is to reset the game.

Note: Prison capsules make the score tally appear automatically, so the level will always end.

Fixed in Rev.02.

Fall down a tube...
S2ggtitle.png
...and you'll end up in strange places.

Should you get knocked into a transportation tube by getting hurt, Sonic and Tails will not enter their spin animations and will fall through the scenery. The game will correct itself, however, as every time the duo are meant to change direction in the tube, they will be moved to their intended positions.

Not fixed in any version.
