The Game.com Sonic Jam is not actually a port of the Saturn version. Rather, it's just a collection of levels inspired by Sonic 2, Sonic 3, and Sonic & Knuckles mixed with bleepy music, ugly black-and-white graphics, inexcusable bugs, and an abysmal framerate.

And you thought Sonic '06, Sonic Genesis, and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric were the worst?

Unused Graphics

Early Graphics

Hmmm...
To do:
Early versions of sprites for Knuckles are used instead of the final ones.

"No Lock On"

Presumably, Sonic & Knuckles would have had support for "locking-on" the Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 cartridges for new content, similar to the Saturn version. This would be the icon shown when playing Sonic & Knuckles by itself.

Unused Sounds

At 0x1072D8 and 0x1078F2 are two unused sounds which depict a female and male moan, respectively. They are leftovers from a fellow Game.com game, Batman & Robin.

Misplaced Rings

In Act 4 of Sonic & Knuckles, a couple of rings which were meant to be placed in a loop are shifted slightly to the right and up of their intended positions.
