The HUD is in an early state, as the player's score is not displayed. The timer in the HUD does not count up; rather, it counts down from 9 minutes and 59 seconds, essentially placing a 10-minute time limit on the player.

All the hints are simply text (with additive blending) and with a blue backdrop. They are not narrated by any characters, either.

When finishing a level, the HUD does not disappear, the music does not stop, and the camera for the end level cutscene goes all wonky at the end of the level, panning away from Team Sonic.
