Super TailsContrary to most peoples beliefs, Super Tails is real and you can get him in a legitimate way. To start off, you must be playing Sonic 3 and Knuckles. Second, you must be playing as only Tails. During the first half of the game (The Sonic 3 half) You must obtain all 7 chaos emeralds. This means you must have them all by the end of Launch Base zone. Once you start Mushroom Hill zone, if you have all the emeralds, you will see Knuckles jump out of a secret cave. (You can't miss it) Push the switch and enter the giant ring, if you notice, the ring is glowing several colors, not just gold. Enter it and you will see a cutscene where the 7 emeralds take thier places alongside the Master Emerald. Now, every time you enter a giant ring, you will be teleported to that room. Simply step on an emerald and pass the level to obtain a Super Emerald. Once you have all 7 Super Emeralds, that's it. The master emerald will twinkle and you can become Super Tails! Just collect 50 rings and hit the jump button in mid-air. Super tails runs faster, jumps higher, is invincible, but I think the best part is: the fact that he has tiny attack birds! These birds will kill anything on screen for you. During boss fights, just sit back and watch, they will do all the work if you let them. If you collect all the Super Emeralds with Sonic, he will become faster and gain a double jump ability. When Sonic performs this double jump, it kills everything on screen. If you get them with Knuckles, He will climb, run, and jump faster, and every time you stick to a wall, the screen will shake and you will kill everything on screen.
Blue Sphere AlternateIn Sonic Mega Collection there is another way to unlock Blue Sphere. Play Sonic Mega Collection with "Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II" save file.
Jumping letters in Mean Bean MachineWhen the WHOLE title screen is shown( Dr Robotniks Mean Bean Machine) Press Up on the Analog stick, then b then a then x and the words letters in the word MEAN will jump according to wich button you press (M=UP on analog stick)(E=b button) ( A= A button) (N= X button)
2-player in 1- player mode on sonic 3.Plug in two controlers and go to sonic 3, get to 1-player mode. the 2nd controler will be tails. Note: this will all be on 1 screen and only sonic can make the screen scroll. But tails does not run out of lives and he can do damage to bad guys. This should help you beat the game.
Super-Boost on lives!In Sonic 3 or Sonic 3 and Knuckles,In the first act of Launch Base Zone, stand between the two sirens that attract the bird enemies to you, ( If playing as Sonic and Tails, use controller two and have Tails walk out of the way ) stand in the middle and move a bit to the right, just touching the second siren. Now start a spinball, but keep spinning ( Let go of A ) and if done right, the bird enemies should keep dive bombing you, and the more that are killed,the more your points rack up. Keep this up until your points rise too 10,000 for every kill, Eventually, you'll get a lives every 15 seconds! Lives that you'll need for the upcoming fight!
