Trivia

In April of 2010 the game was ported for Andorid and IOS devices. Then in 2013 two independent fan developers, Simon Thomely, and Christian Chandler took it upon themselves to restore the previously deleted "Hidden Palace" stage to the based on the stage seen in the early beta prototype. The stage however uses the music present in the Beta version which became the two-player theme for Mystic Cave as opposed to the completed song which is found on the sound test. See more »

Goofs

On Emerald Hill Zone Act 2 when facing Dr. Robotnik, Robotnik enters the Scene with a Helicopter that grafts onto a 4 wheeled unit with a Drill in front. When the drill Unit goes past Sonic, He is unaffected, however when Robotnik gets onto it with the Helicopter, He is. See more »

Crazy Credits

Like the first game, Chaos Emeralds are hidden in the special zones, and if you retrieve them all, following the credits will be Robotnik standing angrily beside the words THE END. If you do not collect them all, following the credits will be Robotnik happily juggling the ones you didn't collect. See more »

Alternate Versions

The game was developed in the US by Sega Technical Institute and released around the world almost simultaneously, so there are no significant differences between international versions. Of the small changes that were made, the biggest is how Tails' name is displayed in the various menus. In the Japanese version, Tails is referenced as "Miles". In the US and European versions, he's listed as "Tails". However, whether it is displayed as "Miles" or as "Tails", it can be changed to the other by inputting a particular code. See more »

A Very Fun But Pretty Hard Video Game
25 July 2006 | by gangstahippieSee all my reviews

Rated E.

Sonic The Hedgehog was the first game in which the hedgehog which we all know and love(Sonic) appears.I have never played the first one or any other Sonic game except for this one.Sonic The Hedgehog 2 is a pretty old video game.This one came out in 1992(the year I was born).But I have the game in my Sega Smash Pack 2 collection for PC and if you find it its worth buying.In this game you play as Sonic the hedgehog and along with your buddy Tails the fox you must collect gold coins and defeat Dr.Robotnik and all of his henchmen.Pretty fun video game for 1992 but now the graphics are dated.But still SOnic The Hedgehog 2 is a fun video game and I recommend it!

9/10
