In this video, I'll be showing two things: A. how some zones load using an actual Genesis (or at least using accurate emulators) and B. that you can use savestates from "Sonic 3C 0,408" to access these stages. Yes, Sonic 3C is a real thing, it's a protype for Sonic & Knuckles dated after Sonic 3. See more information about it here:
Not much happens, except maybe for the fact that you can access the Lava Reef Act 2 boss and also Hidden Palace Zone this way, and it shows that these two zones load in a very interesting manner. Only the ring counter shows up, most graphics are from either Act 1 or Act 2 of Angel Island Zone and the music is from the special stages. Also, it's completly glitched.
HPZ even has a weird point at the end which makes most of the zone disappear. I don't even. The rings that already are in the stage are not collectible by the way.
Any zone not mentioned in this video has the same effect as my previous video. Again, go see that one.
