Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (16-bit) at SteamDB

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was the second game in the Sonic "trilogy" on the Mega Drive and Genesis. It was one of the first games (along with Sonic CD) to include Sonic's famous spindash maneuver. The Sonic 2 version of the spindash (called the Super Spindash) was favored for later games. It has been re-released many times, including as part of Sonic Mega Collection. It was also released on the Game Gear and Master System under the same name.
