Super Tails

Contrary to most peoples beliefs, Super Tails is real and you can get him in a legitimate way. To start off, you must be playing Sonic 3 and Knuckles. Second, you must be playing as only Tails. During the first half of the game (The Sonic 3 half) You must obtain all 7 chaos emeralds. This means you must have them all by the end of Launch Base zone. Once you start Mushroom Hill zone, if you have all the emeralds, you will see Knuckles jump out of a secret cave. (You can't miss it) Push the switch and enter the giant ring, if you notice, the ring is glowing several colors, not just gold. Enter it and you will see a cutscene where the 7 emeralds take thier places alongside the Master Emerald. Now, every time you enter a giant ring, you will be teleported to that room. Simply step on an emerald and pass the level to obtain a Super Emerald. Once you have all 7 Super Emeralds, that's it. The master emerald will twinkle and you can become Super Tails! Just collect 50 rings and hit the jump button in mid-air. Super tails runs faster, jumps higher, is invincible, but I think the best part is: the fact that he has tiny attack birds! These birds will kill anything on screen for you. During boss fights, just sit back and watch, they will do all the work if you let them. If you collect all the Super Emeralds with Sonic, he will become faster and gain a double jump ability. When Sonic performs this double jump, it kills everything on screen. If you get them with Knuckles, He will climb, run, and jump faster, and every time you stick to a wall, the screen will shake and you will kill everything on screen.

Super-Boost on lives!

Now start a spinball, but keep spinning ( Let go of A ) and if done right, the bird enemies should keep dive bombing you, and the more that are killed,the more your points rack up. Keep this up until your points rise too 10,000 for every kill, Eventually, you'll get a lives every 15 seconds! Lives that you'll need for the upcoming fight!

Different versions of Sonic 1

In Sonic Mega Collection, the version of Sonic 1 you play is the Japanese version.

You can play the US version by pressing, on the info screen for Sonic 1, Up, Z, Down, Z, Left, Z, Right, Z. The American version differs in that the clouds don't move in Green Hill, there's no wavy water in Labyrinth, and the level select is in the wrong order.

To play another Japanese version, which fixes the bug which makes you continue to take hits when you hit spikes even if you're flashing and supposed to be temporarily invincible, hit, on the same screen, Z, Z, Z, Z, Z, Z, Z, Z, Z, Up, Down, Left, Right.
