A prototype of Sonic Chaos (also known as Sonic & Tails in Japan) for the Sega Master System.


The Cutting Room Floor research
  • While the EPROMs state the date "13-7", the ROM itself says "MS SONIC.THE.HEDGEHOG.3 Ver0.20 1993/06/30 @SEGA/Aspect Co.,Ltd".
  • The build lacks an intro.
  • The title screen lacks the song used from the final. The trademark symbol is missing from the logo.
  • The game will go to a "demo mode" after a few seconds at the title screen. However, no demos have been recorded yet and so the player just stands in place for a few seconds.
  • Pressing start at the title screen brings you to the level select.
  • Strings for five special stages can be located in the ROM immediately after the level select strings but they do not load for some reason.
  • The sound test hasn't been programmed yet.
  • The title card for each level is slightly different in comparison to the final retail release.
  • Different Death BGM.
  • The running shoes do not work yet.
  • It doesn't like you can go to the special stage yet.
  • In this prototype, the music stops as soon as the end level sign hits the ground. In the final, the music stops as soon as it's touched.
  • The boss bgm is different.
  • The invincibility bgm is slightly different (everything seems to play at a slightly higher octave).
  • The level complete jingle after defeating a boss is different.
  • The BGM used in Electric Egg Zone is completely different and seems to be based on the varient of the introduction theme.
