Three games in one! Includes Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Sonic Spinball. In the battle for the 16-bit generation, Sega needed a character that could take on a certain Italian plumber that had reigned supreme during the previous generation. They found their mascot in a little blue speed machine named Sonic the Hedgehog. Release in 1991, Sonic the Hedgehog was the best selling game of the year and was the defining game on the Sega Genesis. Thanks to the original Sonic, the Genesis became the biggest selling console throughout the world. Sonic 2 launched with a heightened anticipation and expectation, and it didn’t let the Blue Hedgehog’s army of fans down quickly becoming one of the top-selling games of all time. Its’ worldwide appeal and availability ensured that almost everyone who had a Genesis played Sonic 2. Sonic Spinball: In this action packed pinball game the evil scientist Dr. Robotnik has unleashed his most diabolical plot yet to turn the animals of Planet Mobius into robots. His monstrous contraption, the Veg-O-Fortress, built on Mt. Mobius, is already transforming happy creatures into mindless slaves! Yo, Robotnik! You’re in for a mountain of trouble now. Sonic is spinning into action!
