Here's the final Sonic game released on the Mega Drive, before the blue blur moved on to the Sega Saturn. On a similar note, but on a different whistle, this game marks Sonic's debut on Sega's 32-bit powerhouse. A totally new ploy has been devised by Eggman, involving Flickies. These strange birds live in another dimension and can warp anywhere via large rings.
Robotnik decides to capture them, so he can turn them into robots (no surprise). Then he can send these robots anywhere and everywhere in a hunt for the Chaos Emeralds, using the Flickies' warping power. Conveniently, Sonic decides to visit Flickies' Island, but is greeted by a bunch of badniks. He destroys them, and a Flicky pops out. Sonic susses that Robotnik must be up to some devious plan. And again, he sets out to stop him.
Tips & Cheats
Sega Mega Drive Version
Level Select: At the "Sonic 3D Flickies' Island" Title Screen press B, A, Right, A, C, Up, Down, and A. This will take you to the Options Screen (Start, Sound Test, Controls). On this screen go to Start. You'll be taken to the Level select.
Level Skip: Once you have activated the Level Select above, if you wish afterwards you can skip stage by pressing Start and then A.
Easy Chaos Emeralds: Once you have done the level select (above), if you collect 50 rings and meet either Tails or Knuckles you can skip Chaos Emerald stages by pressing Start and then A. You'll gain the Chaos emerald without even having to complete the stage.
Extra Lives: Meet up with Knuckles or Tails with 50 Rings, and enter the Special Stage. Get the Chaos Emerald. When you return, kill yerself. Then, collect 50 rings and meet up with Knux or Tails again to enter the Special Stage again. Because it registered you getting the Emerald, all you'll win now is an Extra Life. Get the 1-Up, and when you return, collect 100 more rings before killing yourself again, and repeating the above.
Sega Saturn Version
Cheat Mode: To enable the cheat mode, hold Up-Left + A + C at the Sonic 3D title screen. While holding these press Start, then choose 'start' as normal. To use the cheat mode, pause the game and press the following buttons for the corresponding effect:
- A : Skip to next Act
- B : Skip to next Stage
- C : Skip to the final boss
- X : Gain 1 life
- Y : Gain 1 Sonic Head (10 Sonic Heads = 1 Continue)
- Z : Gain 1 Chaos Emerald (collect all seven for the better ending)
