Did You Know?


The music from Ice Cap Zone is actually a remake of an unreleased song from 1982, "Hard Times" by The Jetzons, a band co-composer Brad Buxer was apart of. See more »


When you get to the boss at the end of Hydrocity Act 1, it plays the Dr. Robotnik music rather than the mini-boss music. (This goof was fixed for "Sonic 3 & Knuckles".) See more »

Crazy Credits

If the game is finished with all the Chaos Emeralds, dolphins can be seen following the plane in which Sonic and Tails are riding. Complete the game without all the Chaos Emeralds, and there are just birds following the plane. See more »
