Sonic the Hedgehog 3 [b] is a platform game developed and published by Sega. It is the sequel to Sonic the hedgehog 3 ost the Hedgehog 2 and was released worldwide for the Sega Genesis in Following the events of Sonic 2Doctor Robotnik 's spaceship, the Death Egg, crash-lands on a mysterious floating island.
There, Sonic and Tails must once more retrieve the Chaos Emeralds to stop Death Egg from relaunching, while making rounds with the island's guardian, Knuckles the Echidna. Gameplay is similar to previous entries, with players controlling Sonic and Tails sonic the hedgehog 3 ost side-scrolling levels at high speeds while collecting rings and defeating enemies.
Development began shortly after the release of Sonic 2 in late Pop musician Michael Jackson reportedly composed portions of the soundtrack, but left the project and went uncredited. As with its predecessors, Sonic 3 was a critical and commercial success, with critics seeing it as an improvement over previous installments.
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is a 2D side-scrolling platformer. At the start, players can select Sonic, Tails, or both. In the latter choice, players control Sonic while Tails runs along beside him; a second player can join in at any time and control Tails separately. Unlike Sonic, Tails can also swim underwater. The game takes place over six zones each divided into two acts.
Levels are populated with Robotnik's robots, called "badniks"; Sonic and Tails can defeat badniks by jumping on them or using the "spin dash" attack, which also gives the character a speed boost. As with previous Sonic games, Sonic 3 uses ringsscattered throughout the levels, as a health system; when the player is attacked without rings, is crushed, falls off-screen, drowns, or exceeds the act's ten-minute limit, they lose a life and return to the most recently passed checkpoint.
Dying with zero lives gives the player a game over. The levels also include power-ups in television monitors that, when hit, grant the character an extra lifetemporary invincibility to most hazards, a number of rings,  a shield that allows them to breathe underwater, a shield that allows them to withstand fire from enemy projectiles, or a shield that attracts nearby rings.
The game contains two types of "special stages". When the player collects at least 50 rings and passes a checkpoint, they can warp to the sonic the hedgehog 3 ost type,  which involves bouncing up a gumball machine -like corridor to earn power-ups by hitting a switch.
Both sides of the corridor are lined with flippers, which disappear when the sonic the hedgehog 3 ost bounces on them, and the switch drops when both flippers supporting it are removed.
The corridor's floor contains a bounce pad, which also disappears after one use; falling afterwards causes the player to leave the stage with the most recent power-up collected. The second type, triggered by entering giant rings found in secret passages, involves running around a 3D map sonic the hedgehog 3 ost passing through all of a number of blue spheres arranged in patterns.
Passing through a blue sphere turns it red, and touching a red sphere causes the player to leave the stage, unless the player has just completed a cycle around an arrangement of blue spheres, in which case all of these spheres turn to harmless rings. Removing all of the blue spheres gives the player a Chaos Emerald ; if Sonic not Tails collects all seven, he sonic the hedgehog 3 ost become Super Sonic at will, which makes him invincible to most obstacles.
Sonic 3 includes a competitive mode: In these same stages, a single player can compete against the clock in time attacks. The lock-on function is available in some digital releases of the games, such as the Virtual Console service for the Wii.
After Sonic and Tails defeat Dr. There, Robotnik meets Knuckles the Echidnathe last member of an ancient echidna civilization that once inhabited the island.

Thus, the levels are triple the size of those in Sonic 2.
However, time was limited and the manufacturing costs of a megabit cartridge  with NVRAM would have been prohibitively expensive. Sonic 3 features the debut of Sonic's rival, Knuckles the Echidna. Numerous designs for the character were submitted;  the chosen design was submitted by Takashi Yuda. Yuda envisioned him as a supporting character for Sonic, and felt he would make a good playable character.
Hector said Sonic 3 had a troubled development. He recalled having to prevent the rest of Sega from bothering the team while simultaneously making sure the game would be finished in time. Additionally, Hector struggled to balance resources between Sonic 3 and other projects, Naka was sometimes seen as a harsh leader, and STI staff not on the Sonic 3 team became jealous of the high priority given to the game.
InHector stated that Sega hired American pop musician Michael Jacksona fan of the series, : According to Hector, Jackson's involvement was terminated following the first allegations of sexual abuse against him. He also said that the Sonic 3 credits music became the basis for Jackson's single " Stranger in Moscow ".
However, Sega staff including senior producer Mike Latham, marketing director Al Nilsen, Sonic 3 marketing director Pam Kelly, and Sega of America president Tom Kalinske stated that sonic the hedgehog 3 ost involvement of Jackson was arranged without their knowledge, and that no contracts nor formal agreements were made.

Thomas of IGN stated that Sonic 3 "completed the trilogy as the best of them all".
Take that old Sonic magic, add fun new variations, and you have another spectacular game. Some critics felt that Sonic 3 had innovated too little from previous Sonic games. Humphreys of Hyper saw only "a few new features"  while Sega Power thought it was "not all that different"  and Nintendo Life writer Damien McFerran said that "there's not a lot of new elements here to be brutally frank". The visuals were very well received. Humphreys described Sonic the hedgehog 3 ost 3 as "one of lagu last child feat giselle seluruh nafas ini mp3 most beautiful games around" and full of "flashy new visual tricks", highlighting Sonic's ascension up pipes and spiraling pathways as particularly inventive.

In the "a broken clock is right at least twice a day" category, it seems one crazy Internet conspiracy theory has recently been proven true: Michael Jackson provided uncredited musical contributions to the Sega video game Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
The theory has been knocking around on forums, YouTube comparison videos and even a few legitimate news sites for years, with people primarily pointing to three pieces of Sonic 3 music: Before going any further, we should note that Sega -- via HuffPo -- still denies Jackson's involvement on Sonic 3, although the game's credited composers are finally confirming otherwise more than 20 years later.
The story is fairly convoluted but well worth reading. Sega, which released several titles of Jackson's Moonwalker video game, invited him sonic the hedgehog 3 ost visit their office giving us, at the very least, this incredible photo of an adult man posing with another adult dressed as a furry, fictitious hedgehog.
After the in-office meeting, Jackson was provided with a demo of the game and invited to compose music for it.
After receiving music from Sonic the hedgehog 3 ost team for Sonic 3Hector recalled, "I was really impressed with how much of a signature Michael Jackson sound there was in this, and yet, it was all new. This is also confirmed by three of the sonic the hedgehog 3 ost composers listed in the Sonic 3 credits: He asked me if I would help him with it. So why the controversy? Around the time Sonic 3 was in production, Jackson was hit with aasmaan ki chhat pe mp3 molestation allegations.
Some have theorized this caused Sega to scrub his name from the project, while others speculate Jackson wasn't satisfied with the sound quality of video game-compressed music. The man Hector hired to replace Jackson's music, however, tells a different story. Howard Drossin entered the picture before the game was finished to change up some of the music, but confirmed to HuffPo he didn't rewrite the entire score.
When the HuffPo writer pointed out how some of the Sonic themes echo Jackson song structures, Drossin "insisted he hadn't written" those cues.
The game. So there you have it…maybe. Hey, weirder online conspiracy theories Nintendo burying E. And unless we get a statement from Jackson via Ouija board, it seems this well-reported piece will be the final word on an urban legend-turned-probable fact.
