Video Game: Sonic Blast

Sonic Blast (AKA G-Sonic in Japan) is a 1996 Game Gear Sonic the Hedgehog game, and the second-last game Sega released for that system, preceding The Lost World: Jurassic Park. (As usual, it was also converted to the Sega Master System for the Brazilian market.) It is notable for being the last side-scrolling Sonic game released prior to the Game.Com port of Sonic Jam & Sonic the Hedgehog Pocket Adventure, as well as for having pre-rendered graphics la Donkey Kong Country. It is also the first handheld sonic game where Knuckles is fully playable. This game is also notable for being the first Sonic game where Sonic can double-jump, and only loses 10 rings per hit instead of all of them.

The game can be found on Sonic Adventure DX and Sonic Mega Collection Plus, and as an unlockable demo on Sonic Gems Collection.
