+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
**>>10.0 the zones<<**

   --10.1--SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2
      --10.1.1--Synopsis: The best Sonic game in history? Yes. The best game in
this cartridge? No. Sonic the hedgehog 2 has five zones that use the same
design..the Emerald Hill Zone layout. The zones have different paths and
designs, and one is harder than the other. There is no need for a walkthrough..
each zone is extremely short. There is a boss in zones 2, 3, and 4. They are
extremely easy and do not require a guide. There are no extra paths to take.
You LITERALLY RUN RIGHT.

      --10.1.2--Boss #1: Chemical Plant Boss--Yes that is right. The boss
from Chemical Plant returns! It is much more easier of course, because there
is no toxic liquid on both sides of the ground that the boss moves over. Few
hits and he is done. You can finish him off befor he drops the first load of
toxic liquid.

      --10.1.3--Boss #2: Aquatic Ruins Boss--Another classic boss returns. He
is easier than the original because you do not need to jump up on the arrows
he shoots in order to hit him. He is big enough for you to jump up and hit him.
A few hits and he is dead.

      --10.1.4--Boss #3: Emerald Hill Boss--The first boss for a last level?!
Ok he was easy in Genesis, but he is a bit harder here (SHOCK!). He moves
faster and Sonic falls faster when he jumps, so you often miss and hit the
drill. Few hits and he is gone.

   --10.2--SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 3
      --10.2.1--Synopsis: Though this was an extremely long game in the Genesis
Version, it is extremely short in the game.com version. Five zones each with
the same layout are in this game. They each use the Angel Island layout. At the
end of Zone 1, the boss from Angel Island Zone Act 1 (genesis) will appear,
instead of the sign. It will shoot fire (that won't hurt you) and egnite the
place on fire. Then the zone is over. There are only 2 Bosses in this game!
They are in Zones 2 and 4. They are also very very easy.

      --10.2.2--Boss #1: Angel Island Act 1 Boss-- Why do they pick the easy
bosses? Hit him a few times to finish him. That is it. His fire doesn't even
affect you. I can't understand the people who created this game...

      --10.2.3--Boss #2: Angel Island Act 2 Boss-- Easier times ten! Easier
than the original. Basically, you avoid fire he shoots (THAT DOES ACTUALLY
AFFECT YOU!) and hit him a few times to beat him.


   --10.3--SONIC & KNUCKLES
      --10.3.1--Synopsis: Yet another extremely long game in the Genesis
Version, and very short in the game.com version. There are five zones that use
the Mushroom Hill layout. This has to be the most easiest game of the three.
There are two bosses: in Zones 3 and 5.


      --10.3.2--Boss #1: Mushroom Hill Act 1 Boss-- This boss is slow, and when
he shoots the logs, they go out in a straight line. Why? Because the people of
Tiger are retarded. They make it easier. The logs won't even touch you because
the boss shoots them way up high...go figure. Hit him a few times and he is
outta here!

      --10.3.3--Boss #2: Mushroom Hill Act 2 Boss-- Easy squeezy lemon peezy.
Dodge some spike balls he shoots as you hit him a few times. You won!

      --10.3.4--Boss #3: Flying Battery Zone 1 Boss-- This is it..the last
boss and the hardest! (not!) Stand ontop of him so he accidently hits himself.
Simple as that. A few times and he is gone.



+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
**>>11.0 what happens at the end?<<**
The ending is a total cop out! At the end of any of the three game, you will
see the character you chose in a pose. There is a checkerboard background, and
words appear on the screen saying "CONGRADULATIONS!" and then they show your 
final score.
After all that hard work you'd think you would get SOMETHING nice to see...but
you don't, sadly.



+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
**>>12.0 the special stage<<**
In Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic & Knuckles, there are Special Rings hidden
throughout each Zone. Find one and jump through it to be transported to the
special stage. In the special stage, you run through a 3-D course collecting
black spheres and avoiding white ones.
This special stage is exactly like the one in Sonic the Hedgehog 3(genesis) and
Sonic & Knuckles (genesis) except there is no Chaos Emerald...just a bonus
added to your score.
