The image used here is the image for the 2010 port, which was just an emulator with the original sonic 2 ROM. However, the app has been updated with certain features such as the hidden palace zone (not to be confused with the sonic and knuckles hidden palace zone) from the original prototype games of sonic 2 by fan Christian Whitehead. It also includes widescreen and an actual save system. There is so much more but that is just the stuff that I liked.
