Sonic The Hedgehog-Sega Master System-Tec Toy tips

Continuing the articles on the Master Club, Today I show the tips of the Tec Toy for the game Sonic The Hedgehog from the Master System.

Sonic The Hedgehog It was released by Sega for the Master System in October 1991, a few months after the release of version of Mega Drive. In Brazil the Tec Toy distribution began in January 1992. I believe that in stores I frequented have arrived a little later (or simply was not easy to find on the shelf), because I remember you know the version of Mega Drive When I finally rent of Master System.

Sega did a great job to get around the limitations of the Master System. Instead of doing a faithful port, did a very different game than we have in the Mega Drive, with other dynamics. As I mentioned in the article on the third letter from Tec Toy, at that time I was already looking for a Mega Drive, but a launch of weight as the Sonic, the Hedgehog got a good survival rate to Master System MIM.

This is the cover of Sonic The Hedgehog in the version of the Tec Toy, extracted from the Tec Toy Wiki:

Unlike the version of Mega Drive, the version of the Master System from the Sonic The Hedgehog There's no tricks known to select stages, get into construction mode or something like that. So much so that the tips of the Tec Toy there is only strategies to defeat the bosses of each phase. This somehow motivated me more to play, as for seeing new stages was really need to go through them. The version of Master System also always seemed harder, because when you bump into some enemy or obstacle and lose the rings, It is not possible to recover them as happens in Mega Drive. This difference is probably due to graphical limitations Master System, you couldn't stand a lot of rings moving across the screen with different trajectories and simultaneously.

I remember the first time I rented the Sonic The Hedgehog I was tangled up in phase Jungle, that is one of the most difficult, with a somewhat complicated jumps. In the second lease finally learned how to pass that stage and then I got to the end.

The leaflet with the tips of the Sonic The Hedgehog the Tec Toy sent me follows the more traditional format: is a sheet of continuous form with matrix printing. It contains the plot of the game, the controls, and tips for going through each of the heads. Here's the scanned brochure:
