Zones

As in other Sonic titles, the levels in Sonic Pocket Adventure are known as zones, with each zone containing two parts. The players must navigate through all the zones in order to beat the game, with the second level in each zone containing a boss. There are six regular zones in the game, as well as one secret zone that contains only one level. Below is the full list of zones in order of appearance in the single player mode.

  • Neo South Island: A green island which is based on the stylings of Emerald Hill Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
  • Secret Plant: Based on Chemical Plant Zone, another zone from Sonic the Hedgehog 2. However, there are no purple chemical liquids found in this zone.
  • Cosmic Casino: This zone is based on Casino Night Zone, also from Sonic the Hedgehog 2. As Sonic, the player must navigate through a casino-themed area filled with bumpers and other various obstacles.
  • Aquatic Relix: Based on Sonic the Hedgehog 2's Aquatic Ruin Zone, this is the only level in the game which features underwater sections.
  • Sky Chase: Similar to the Sky Chase Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog 2, here Sonic walks on the wings of Tails' plane, the Tornado.
  • Aerobase: Based on Sonic the Hedgehog 2's Wing Fortress Zone. This zone takes place on a very large flying warship in which Sonic must find a way to get inside.
  • Gigantic Angel: This zone's background design has been taken from Scrap Brain Zone from the original Sonic the Hedgehog. This zone takes place in a large base full of traps and hazards, most of which are taken from Sonic the Hedgehog 2's Metropolis Zone.
  • Last Utopia: This is the last proper zone and is a stand-off between Sonic and Dr. Robotnik. Robotnik is in a large flying machine which has a chaos emerald powered cannon.
  • Chaotic Space: A hidden bonus level that must be unlocked in order to play, this zone plays similarly to the Doomsday Zone from Sonic & Knuckles.

Multiplayer

In addition to the single player mode, Sonic Pocket Adventure allows multiplayer gaming for two players. In order to compete, both players are required to have a Neo Geo Pocket Color and a copy of the game, and one link up cable. The multiplayer is similar to that in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 with players competing to be the first to finish a race. Player 1 is always Sonic, while player 2 is Tails.


Music

The music in Sonic Pocket Adventure is largely taken from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic & Knuckles, with one track from Sonic Jam. Sonic the Hedgehog 3, often abbreviated and officially known in Europe as Sonic 3, is a platform game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series for the Mega Drive/Genesis. ...

Extras

One of the odd things about Sonic Pocket Adventure is that Tails is playable in the single player mode as a result of a glitch in some emulators causing debug to occur. Glitch City, a Pokémon programming error that creates a jumble of pixels. ...


This game is also the only game to mix the current Sonic style with the classic one. For example, the in-game sprites very much look like it would be pre-Sonic Adventure, but close-up graphics show a closer resemblance to the post-Sonic Adventure style. Eggman himself wears his original red shirt and cape for most of the game, but wears his newer outfit in his base, at the finale of the game.

The gameplay is mostly taken from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Sega Genesis/Mega Drive.
Sonic was revolutionary in his time, and he continues to revolutionize the industry on the Dreamcast.
Sonic's graphics probably won't show up well on a fl and white system, but on the Neo Geo Pocket Color it is very refreshing to see this many colors and this much detail.
