Retro Gaming Special – Sonic the Hedgehog 2 BETA
It’s not really a secret that I am a Sonic fan, as one of many people of my generation I adore the little blue hedgehog. We spend hours and hours rushing through levels, collecting rings and chaos emeralds.
While surfing I came across these gems, beta screens from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Sega Megadrive. If you know this game a little bit you’ll see that a lot has been changed before they released the actual game.
This is a deleted level, the woodzone. It’s possible to play this level in debug mode (so they say, I honestly never tried it)
Did you ever play Sonic and Knuckles? Remember the hidden palace zone? This idea was already present in Sonic 2. The level was however very different but never completed.
A beta screen of the casino night zone. Same story here, lot’s of things have changed before it was released.
I don’t really know what sone this is. Looks a bit like a “nevada desert” version of the green hill zone :’).
Edit: I just figured it out, it’s called Dust Hill…
There are even a few videos available :)
