Sonic 1 and 2 allowed you to play as Knuckles, but slotting in Sonic 3 gave you the original full Sonic 3 experience.

I’ll correct you both. You aren’t nerds. You’re geeks.
For anyone who did not play this as a youngster - I remember that this was effectively a stand-alone expansion of Sonic 3. To have the true experience, you needed to own both, as Sonic 3 would slot into the top of Sonic and Knuckles! This allowed for super/hyper sonic power up, which you cannot get in Sonic and Knuckles. Clearly a wasted youth!

I wouldn't buy/play this, or at least this version, unless you have no choice.

Get the Sonic3C rom hack instead which can also be downloaded through Steam if you have Sonic 3 and Knuckles or directly from Sonic Retro.

This Rom Hack allows for a single ROM to be Sonic 3, Sonic and Knuckles and Blue Sphere while also allowing for different modifications e.g. restore "Big Arms" to Sonic 3 and Knuckles.
Isn’t it on games pass?

Not quite a deal as this is the normal price. The times it is on sale you can get it for .99p
Who remembers Sonic and Tails?


If I had a XB1 I'd get this for a nostalgia trip for £1.99!

Going to have to out nerd the both of you here, but it's been a while so correct me if I'm wrong:

Sonic 3- Sonic 3 and Knuckles
Sonic 2- Knuckles in Sonic 2
Sonic 1- Blue Sphere (full version)
Any other MD game where the combined cart size(s) doesn't go over 4MB- a specific level of Blue Sphere
Any other MD game which does go over 4MB- Sonic and Knuckles

Did you ever do the eject game at sega logo and reinserting a different game, pressing reset hack.

That I worked out by error when I was 10, worth a try if you ever get a chance, results are surprising.

No, most I’ve ever done is the Sonic 3D error handler/level select by tilting the cart and overloading S3&K so badly with debug mode that it crashed the game and rebooted into Sonic & Knuckles.

Unfortunately I can’t test right now as my mark 1 console is disassembled, been on/off trying to repair the headphone output for stereo sound

Does that work on xbox one.
Fellow nerds should check out Gamehut on youtube, it's the developer of Sonic 3D, Toy Story, Mickey Mania, and various other games explaining how he put stuff in those games, and why the level select stuff often exists (a cheeky way of the game crashing but telling SEGA it was deliberate ha!), very interesting. He also does remasters too

Kind of, you would need to use dev mode to side load an emulator.

If you have a student email address or other qualifying method you can get a dev account for free using Microsoft Inspire/Dreamspark but otherwise it does cost some money afaik.

I think he’s also released the Sonic 3D directors cut on steam workshop if you own Sonic 3D, otherwise there’s a patch available.

Even if you think TT’s games are mediocre, its still worth checking out the channel for the impressive technical aspects eg. The FMV.
