A pretty good port of one of the early Sonic games, I gather (first one?). I never really liked Sonic and I don't like him tiny, either--the whole momentum-based movement is a real drag, if you ask me (I spend more time going real slow than real fast, ugh), and unless I'm lost in the huge maze-like levels (frequent) I'm torn between going real fast or stopping to pick up all the little rings and boxes and things lying around. Ugh. What's my motivation? And Sonic himself is a punk. I only have this because it was a pack-in with my original system.
So yeah. Playing this just now I noticed some slowdown in one of the later boss battles, which for all I know could have been in the original. Certainly by and large the game scrolls by at an impressive speed here. It doesn't really move me, however (ha... sorry).
