So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

After the success of Mario Party, Sonic followed in the plumber's footsteps in the party genre with Sonic Shuffle, which was unsuccessful thanks to the cheatsy AI and excessive load times (not as bad as that Sonic game from 2006, mind you, but still pretty annoying).

Debug Features

Present in the SUBPROG directory are files for debug tools, such as a model viewer and a level viewer which includes a small debug system. To access these features, replace TITLE.BIN with any of the below files:

Hmmm...
To do:
These all need looking into.

Model Viewer (MDLVIEW.BIN)

It's...a model viewer. Duh.

Level Viewer (TEST_0.BIN)

Lets you view the game's maps. This uses the Gindows debugging system seen in the Rez prototype and Scud Racer early SDK sample.

Character Viewer (HPVIEW.BIN)

Lets you view character models, although only Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Illumina, Lumina, and Void can be selected. Note that this file is referred to as "High Poly Viewer" within 1ST_READ.BIN.

Debug Menu Text

Text for a debug menu exists within TITLE.BIN, before the text used for VMU access. Whether it can still be accessed is unknown.
