This movie has been obsoleted!

Somewhat fast bouncing around. The lack of a spin-dash makes the strategy a bit different than the other Sonic runs, since it becomes a lot more important to preserve your momentum. Completed without collecting any emeralds.

This is the first run of this game. Just like Sonic 2, this game has been considered to be "cursed" for a long time, with many people trying to make runs and giving up halfway.

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.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
