This game was the first Sonic game to use Time travel, they scrapped the idea on Mega Drive. Shown with fab Sonic anime cartoons, Sonic has to rescue Amy Rose from the clutches of Metallix, Eggman’s newest creation to help eradicate Sonic and the world.
But instead of trying to conquer the world the old fashioned way, Eggman has to be cheeky and use time travel. Consequently, Sonic must stop this also, and now he has to travel back in time, make GOOD futures in the levels, collect Time Stones to help defeat Eggman, and rescue Amy. OK. Maybe this is sliiiightly confusing…
In the D.A. Garden, the Little Planet is shown to have a desert-like area with cacti. There is no Zone in the game that resembles a desert – was it drawn on as something to take up space or is it perhaps a scrapped level?
These weird sprites (above) have been hiding within the game CD. Lord knows what they are for, but it is thought that the larger sprites in this picture are for the Special Stages… The Oil Blob Sprites next to the Sprite Sheet has been lifted from the Beta Special Stages, and seems to slow down Sonic when he runs over them. Naturally, these must have been replaced with the choppers that slow Sonic down and lose him rings in the Final Version.
The first image (above) is a cel from the ending sequence of Sonic CD, found in the ‘Pencil Test’ mode of the game. In the sequence, it shows Sonic running through all of the levels from the game and bopping badniks, but this ruins-based level isn’t in the game at all. In the sequence, a large boss-like creature tries to crush Sonic, but he jumps inbetween its tentacles, like the lil’ acrobat that he is. Bless ‘is little heart.
This picture (above) shows a bundle of Mega CD design covers. But check out the Sonic CD one. It’s a much different, and much cooler, box artwork than the ones in the Final Versions.
