|Description||SEGA's officially renowned mascot Sonic the Hedgehog made his official debut in the hit Genesis title, but Sega's 8-bit systems had also gotten their own version of the original platformer, featuring the same story arc and gameplay style, but only different levels.|
In order to stop and bring down the infamous Dr. Robotnik, Sonic must traverse across 6 different zones consisting of 3 "Acts" or levels each. Most of the zones are based on those from the original game released on the 16-bit Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, although, there are also some that are entirely new. Enemies (mechanized badniks, defeated by Sonic's spikes upon jumping or rolling) and power-ups (speed-ups, shields, extra lives) are mostly the same as well. Sonic can pick up golden rings for protection (when hit by enemies, he simply loses all of his rings instead of a life) and bonuses: 100 rings grant Sonic an extra life, and 50 remaining rings at the end of a level allow him access to spinball-themed special stages full of bumpers and springs. Every final level of each zone has a boss fight against Robotnik and has Sonic freeing all his animal friends captured and imprisoned by Robotnik.
Sonic must also collect all the 7 Chaos Emeralds to keep them from falling into Robotnik's hands. In a departure from the original version, these are not hidden within the special stages but rather just somewhere within the regular levels.
