The Sonic games for the Sega Master System and the Game Gear are much less well known than their Genesis/Mega Drive counterparts and have a reputation for being quite challenging, especially in handheld form. You'd never know this from the speed Sonic blazes through the game here.
Unlike later 8-bit Sonic games, there are significant differences in levels between the SMS version and the Game Gear version; here the latter is used primarily for faster boss fights.
This run improves the predecessor movie by 00:02.30 real-time seconds, and by 01:22.41 minutes of total in-level time. What makes the real-time difference so small is the larger time bonuses. To compensate for that, the author has made an encode that cuts out the bonus screen and the level title cards.
If you like this run, also check out the run for SMS Sonic 2.
The baseline tab shows the default movie beating the game as fast as possible without any special conditions.
