|Description||SEGA's officially renowned speedy blue mascot Sonic the Hedgehog has made his official debut in the original 16-bit Genesis title, while SEGA's other 8-bit portable handheld Game Gear system had also gotten its 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 notorious Dr. Robotnik, Sonic must traverse across 6 different Zones, each consisting of 3 "Acts" or levels. Most of the Zones are also similar to those on the original version released on the 16-bit Genesis platform, although, there are also some that are entirely different. Enemies (mechanized Badniks which can be 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 also pick up golden rings for protection (when hit by enemies, he simply loses all of his rings instead of a life) and bonuses. Collecting 100 rings also grants Sonic an extra life and 50 remaining rings at the end of each level allow him to enter and access spinball-themed Special Stages filled with bumpers and springs. Each third "Act" or level of each Zone has a boss fight against Robotnik and has Sonic rescuing all of his animal friends who have been captured and imprisoned by Robotnik.
Sonic must also collect and recover all 6 of the Chaos Emeralds before they fall into the evil hands of Robotnik. In contrast to the original 16-bit Genesis version, the Chaos Emeralds here are not hidden or housed within the Special Stages but rather just somewhere within the regular levels.
