Level skip

This trick requires the "Level select" and "Debug mode" codes. Go to any stage and change into an object. Press A until you get to the object before the single ring. It is a strange looking object with a little Robotnik head (a machine where all the creatures appear from if you defeated a Boss). Place about ten in a row. Step on the first one until you see the score counting as if you completed the level. When you see that, step on the other buttons. You will go to the level after the level you were supposed to go to. For example: if you were in the Emerald Hill Act 1 you will now be in Chemical Plant Act 1. You can do this trick in any stage, but not in Dead Zone.

Faster sound test options

Go into the options screen, bring up the sound test, then press A. You will go up ten at a time, making it much easier when using the level select code.

Unlimited speed shoes

Begin game play in two player vs. mode and hit as many item boxes as possible until you get the speed shoes. Then, intentionally lose your life while you have them (getting squashed is the easiest way). You will return to the start of the level or the last Star Post that you hit, but you will now have the speed shoes in effect for the rest of the stage.

Super Sonic sign

Get all of the Chaos Emeralds and transform into Super Sonic. Try to have at least fifty rings when you finish the level. After completing the level, run off screen and wait until the end-of-level sign shows Sonic. When it does, transform into Super Sonic. The sign will show Super Sonic for one second, then show blue Sonic again.
