Mega-CD version

While the animated introduction is rendered at the same size as the Mega-CD version, on Windows the full video is rendered, with more colours and frames of animation. The quality does not match up to the version seen in Sonic Jam two years later, but it was the highest quality version available at the time.

Loading times are more of a problem on Windows. Loading screens, depicting a stylised version of little planet, interrupt most screen changes in the game.
