Hint: Green Hill Zone 3: Flicky

  • All platforms

reference: On Green Hill Zone Act 3, just after Sonic steps on the cap to explode the rocket ship, animals pop out. One is a rabbit, and the other is a blue bird who appears to be Flicky, who is from another classic SEGA game, Flicky.

Glitch: Early unlimited lives

  • All platforms
  • code
Enable "Level select" and "Debug mode" codes. Put a lamppost just before the sign at the end of the level. Press B to transform back into Sonic and hit the lamppost. Get out until the lives read "1" at the bottom of the screen. Spin the sign to end the level. Wait until Sonic walks out of the screen. Enter debug mode and go under the sign to get out again. The "Game Over" message will appear while the credits are being shown. You now have unlimited lives.

Hint: Easy Emeralds

  • All platforms
  • code
Enable the "Debug mode" code. At the beginning of the level, create 50 rings and have Sonic collect them. Then, take Sonic to the end of the stage where you the giant ring. In the special stage, turn Sonic into an item and bring him to the end of the stage where the emerald is located. Turn him back and he will immediately get the Emerald. Repeat this until you have all six.

Hint: Get all the same color Emeralds:

  • All platforms
  • code
Enable the "Debug mode" code. While in Special Zone, transform into something then go as far left and down as possible until Sonic stops shaking. Turn back into Sonic. You will fall to a place which is spinning. Look around to find every different Emerald. Note: If you fall off this place, you will fall back to your original location. To prevent this, transform and repeat the process. This works in every Special Zone.

Hint: Scrap Brain 3: Shortcut

  • All platforms
  • code
To pass Scrap Brain 3 in a very short amount of time, press the button at the beginning of the level, and jump over the bridge to go in the path below the bridge. Jump over all the pits. By the last pit, fall down, and go up the path on the right until you see the red jumper. The jumper brings you to the next level.

Hint: Special Zone entrance

  • All platforms
  • code
You can almost always have the Special Zone entrance open (the giant ring next to the sign at the end of level Acts 1 and 2) by not losing your rings. If you do lose your rings, when you pass a checkpoint, intentionally die, then continue through the level without losing any rings. This works about 80% of the time.
