Crazy Credits

The ending credits varies depends on how many Chaos Emeralds you collected in the game:
  • If you collected all 7 Emeralds, Sonic transforms into Super Sonic and fly and pose while soaring. At the end Dr Robotnik will be seen standing angrily.
  • If you didn't collect them all, Sonic will jump off the "Sonic F" plane and pose. Robotnik will be happily juggling the Emeralds you missed.

Alternate Versions

In the late-'80s and early-'90s, Sega Europe released a modified version of the Master System and Mega Drive hardware for use in arcades. The multi-cart system was known as Mega-Tech, and the JAMMA version (Mega Drive only) as Mega Play. The motherboard could host up to eight cartridges at a time, from which players could choose whatever they wanted to play. Among the supported games available for both Mega-Tech and Mega Play were Sonic the Hedgehog (1991) (VG) and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992) (VG). The alterations made to this version of Sonic 2 were basically the same as those made to Sonic 1; see "alternate versions" for Sonic the Hedgehog (1991) (VG). See more »
