Sonic bounces around surprisingly fast. The lack of Spin Dash makes the strategy a bit different from that of Sonic the Hedgehog 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 ninth publication of this branch, improving on the previous effort by 7.89 (of in-game time), due to even tighter optimization and some new shortcuts.
There are also runs where Knuckles and Tails they take advantage of their own abilities to finish the game in record time.
To see a movie of this game that doesn't take advantage of zips, watch the "no zips" run by Aglar.

The second encode link leads to a camhacked version. But don't expect the videos where Sonic is visible offscreen to make any more sense than the original ones!
This movie also has a full Atlas Map encode, which shows the camhack encode overlaid on a zoomed out map.
