Play the popular sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog, made specifically for the Sega Master System, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 which saw the cameo debut of Miles "Tails" Prower, Sonic's high-flying sidekick! Sonic returns home to his island just in time to see Dr. Eggman (AKA Dr. Robotnik) run off with Tails! In fact, Dr. Eggman has kidnapped all of Sonic’s animal friends, and placed them in robotic mind-controlling suits. In exchange for their safe return, he demands that Sonic fetch him the six Chaos Emeralds that are hidden on the island!. Explore underground mine shafts, dash through underwater tunnels, and hang glide through the clouds in Sonic’s search for the Chaos Emeralds! Then, once Sonic has found them all, he must face off with Dr. Eggman and once again thwart the evil scientist's plans for global domination!
