Man...I don't have this one either.  I have Sonic 2 but not this one.  :( 

Maybe next year 😉 You don't have to play an original cartridge, you can play through emulation, flashback, etc. Also Sonic is available on the Sega Genesis "6-PAK" cartridges which are fairly common and not that expensive.

Pretty sure I just had one of my best games of Sonic ever...  got three out of four emeralds and all the way to the Spring Zone on one man.  Beat the second level boss (the one that drops fire on the two platforms) with no rings!


Anyway, my score for this challenge - 112950.  Wish I had take video.  I need to get a capture thing...


Played on Genesis model 2, game on the Genesis 6-Pak cart.

I had a busy weekend, so this was the only one of the three I was able to do. 
I know this might sound crazy, but I think Sonic 1 is underrated these days, especially compared to Sonic 2. 

Played on a Model 1 from 6-Pak, using a video capture device. And I too beat the 2nd boss with no rings, lol. I was nervous battling him!

I play Sonic 1 somewhat regularly.  It's the only video game I can get my girlfriend to play.  I even have pictures of her playing it!  lol

Many moons ago, she was struggling to get by with no car and nothing to do but go to work and come home.  The only thing she had to do at home was play Sonic and she actually beat it.  (Probably not with all the Chaos Emeralds, but still...)  So every once in a while we sit down and pass the controller back and forth.  She starts out and I take over when she dies, then when I die, she takes over and so on until we get tired of it or frustrated with the levels.  (That water one... I guess after spring zone?...  gets us every time.)
