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

The Ooze (not to be confused with the Action 52 game) is the story of Dr. Daniel Caine, who has been turned into a mass of ooze after discovering the cruel intentions of his employers...and wants not only revenge, but also a cure.

Unused Music

Three unused songs can be accessed from the sound test, but aren't actually heard anywhere in the game. It's unknown where any of these songs were supposed to be used.

Sound Test Code: 02

Sound Test Code: 07

Sound Test Code: 0B

Secret Stage select Menu

To do:
Explain what each option does.
The Secret of The Ooze

In the options menu, without changing the default control method, go to the top of the screen to the sound test area. Set the following audio numbers, and press C after each entry:

  • 009
  • 019
  • 010
  • 024
  • 011
  • 013
  • 006
  • 027
  • 006
  • 088
  • 003
  • 030

The "Yes!" sound effect will confirm it was entered correctly. Now, hold A and press Start to open the menu. It can also be opened anytime during gameplay.

Unused Continue Screen

The Ooze lacks a continue system, but a cut continue screen can be accessed by starting the game with the Game Genie code DBZT-AAH6. The text can be changed to say "DON'T CONTINUE" by using the D-Pad. It is unknown how early in development the continue system was cut, or why.

Version Differences

To do:
Does the "Start button issue" happen in other versions? Was the title screen already white in the "regular" (JP only) Sonic Mega Collection?

Sonic Mega Collection Plus

  • For some reason, the background color for the title screen was changed from black to an alternate white & green pattern.
  • In the PS2 PAL version of the game, the Start button sometimes doesn't register (probably due to emulation issues). It also happens for Comix Zone within the same compilation.
