I've heard for a 1P mode it is fine, emulated ok enough, but that it craps out with 2P stuff like to the point in development they removed the 2P mode from Sonic 2 to keep it stable. Otherwise the resolution like a GBA piracy emulator has squashed resolution so nothing is dropped, and I read somewhere the audio was slightly less good but acceptable. The menu is dogshit, and the save anywhere isn't, its save at start of the stage(or act not sure.) If you could bag it for $20 I'd say go, but $30 still seems steep to me. It's a real budget quick and dirty release that just happens to suck a lot less than that hideous Sonic1 anniversary game the GBA got.

IF you don't mind taking 2-3min to skim this, as much as I hate this site they got a better than most write up on the game because it delves into the EMULATION aspect of the game right down to where it's good in bad from pausing, to lack of 'cheat codes' the Genny had and so on. It even mentions where you may get a rare dropped frame or wonky sound effect. Do read, then go for it or not.
