A work-in-progress demo dated October 8, 1996.

General Differences

  • Pressing Start will skip levels. Sometimes this will cause the game to lock up.
  • Pressing A does a Spin Dash, while B and C are the jump buttons. In the final game, B does a Spin Dash, while A and C are the jump buttons.
  • No Special Stages or bosses.
  • Three Acts are missing - Diamond Dust 2, as well as both Volcano Valley 1 and 2.
  • This particular demo lacks any music or sound in-game. The only sound is on the title screen, where it plays the ring loss sound.
  • The main menu only has a "Start" option.

Visual Differences

Several Zones either have unfinished art or borrow art straight from the Genesis version.

The menu uses a different texture, and also all buttons are start. The background also uses a higher resolution of the infamous Strabismus Sonic render.
