In my opinion this was by far the best Sonic games for the 8-bit system. The gameplay was decent and had lastability. Unlike other Sonic's on this format, Tails could be controlled but could not collect the Chaos Emeralds yet picking Sonic as your character would allow you to find the 6 that were hidden in the game.
The US version was the only one to mention in the manual for the game that Dr Robotnik was after the Chaos Emeralds to make nuclear weapons. There's no proper reason why the Japan and Europe versions never used the same story.
The game contained 6 zones with 3 acts and a final boss to defeat in each.
Sega released a sequel a year later called Sonic Triple Trouble but was called Sonic and Tails 2 in Japan.
