Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (Sega Game Gear, 1992)
|The second installment of Sonic the Hedgehog shot straight to the Game Gear system bringing along seven hair raising new levels and hours of excitement. Continuing the series' lightning legacy, Sega's 16-bit adventure treats you to intense high-speed battles versus some of Dr. Eggman's most maniacal plots. Sonic returns home from vacation only to discover Tails left behind a mysterious note and all of his animal friends were gone. Determined to save his double-tailed companion, Sonic speeds through 21 individual battles like only he can. Utilizing all of his best moves plus a few new tricks like soaring on a hang glider or taking a wild ride in a mine cart, Sonic bravely makes his way through each act before facing a different robotic boss. When he finally reaches the last level, he'll be forced to face his arch nemesis, Dr. Ivo Robotnik, without help from rejuvenating bonus rings.
