I played the Android version of this. I mention this because it’s not the original game being emulated, but a recreation of it. The most noticeable difference is now the game is widescreen, which is nice!
This game is very colorful. The soundtrack is rocking. This really shows off what the Genesis was capable of. Unfortunately, this game has the most cheap hits from enemies of any Sonic game. It’s very easy to run directly into an enemy and lose all your coins. Bummer.
Also, the end of the game is hard. You have to fight three bosses back to back on one set of rings. Once you do beat it though, it’s a nice reward watching the credits roll.
Great game overall.
