Sonic the Hedgehog CD was developed to showcase a new Genesis/Mega Drive peripheral, the Sega CD.

The game is markedly different than other Sonic games; aside from "improved" graphics and sounds, each level has 2 to 4 alternate versions that correspond to different time periods. Sonic can move between them to affect the gameplay and ending.

This run is 31.53 seconds faster in in-game time than nitsuja's run thanks to various optimization and minor route changes. For more information on the improvements, please read the author's submission notes.

There are two sets of encode files, the first recorded with the American region music and the second with the Japanese region music.

There is also a run of Sonic the Hedgehog Megamix played as Sonic on his SegaCD version.

We also have movies in Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

Total movies: 2

Sonic the Hedgehog CD was developed to showcase a new Genesis/Mega Drive peripheral, the Sega CD. Likewise, this movie is the first of its kind on TASVideos and showcases the newly updated Gens emulator that allows for making stable movies of Sega CD games.

The game is markedly different than other Sonic games; aside from "improved" graphics and sounds, each level has 2 to 4 alternate versions that correspond to different time periods. Sonic can move between them to affect the gameplay and ending.

This run is approximately 37 seconds faster than upthorn and nitsuja's previous run thanks to various optimization and minor route changes. For more information on the improvements, the BIOS files used and a run for the Japanese version of the game, please read the author's submission notes.

There are two video encode files, the first recorded with the Japanese region music and the second with the American region music.

The game is markedly different than other Sonic games; aside from "improved" graphics and sounds, each level has 2 to 4 alternate versions that correspond to different time periods. Sonic can move between them to affect the gameplay and ending.

However, upthorn and nitsuja ignore this entirely and tear through the game in standard Sonic TAS style, skipping many portions of the levels with unintended shortcuts and leaving the camera to try to catch up.

There are two AVIs, the first recorded with the US music and the second with the Japanese music.
