In Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic and Tails continue to thwart the plans of Dr. Robotnik, this time on the Floating Island that is guarded by Knuckles the Echidna.

In this run, you'll see the Floating Island like never before, as Evil_3D, TheYogWog, and kaan55 use every trick in Sonic's and Tails's arsenal to collect as many rings as possible. The routing for this goal is more about efficiently moving between groups of rings than efficiently moving to the end of the stage, and is incredibly complex.

This run starts from a clear-game savestate with all of the Chaos Emeralds and Super Emeralds collected, so that collecting giant rings will award Sonic and Tails a 50-ring bonus instead of taking them to a Blue Sphere bonus stage. We normally do not accept save-anchored movies; more details can be found in the authors' comments.

An atlas encode is also available, which shows the characters' positions on a zoomed-out level map, which might make it easier to follow the action.

For those wishing to play back the emulator movie file, a Gens-11b savestate for this purpose is available here.

We have a number of other Sonic 3 runs: Sonic and Tails, Sonic 100%, Tails, Sonic and Tails on NewGame+, Knuckles, Knuckles 100%, Knuckles ring attack, Amy, and Competition mode.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
