Sonic bounces around surprisingly fast. The lack of Spin Dash makes the strategy a bit different from that of Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles runs, since preserving your momentum becomes a lot more important. However, this doesn't prevent the author from achieving crazy velocities even with such a significant limitation. In this run, the game is completed without collecting any emeralds.

This is the seventh run of this game, improving on the previous effort by 1:01.58 (of in-game time) with the use of new zips and improved precision.

To see a movie of this game that doesn't take advantage of zips, watch the "no zips" run by Aglar.

Spoiler: hover over the screenshot.

Every second encode link leads to a camhacked version. But don't expect the videos where Sonic is visible offscreen to make more sense than the original ones!
