The Sonic & Knuckles Collection is a compendium of Microsoft Windows-based computer games released in 1997. The collective goal of the bundled games involves saving the world from total annihilation by preventing Dr. Robotnik from carrying out his plans. The player can choose to play as Sonic, Knuckles, or Tails. In the game, the player can speed through huge game environments, access special 3D game levels, unlock bonus stages, and go on head-to-head two-player split-screen matches. The player is awarded with fancy moves that they can use to get through opponents and obstructions. Sonic & Knuckles Collection is designed to provide players with hours of computer gameplay.
The games that come with this collection include:
• Sonic & Knuckles
• Blue Sphere or Special Stage Mode
• Sonic the Hedgehog 3
• Sonic 3 & Knuckles
The collection’s North American and European versions also come with Sonic the Screensaver, which include Sonic-themed wallpapers, themes, music, and icons from different Sonic and Knuckles games, as well as a Sonic compact disc with a soundtrack in Japanese. While the games in the compilation were popular during the 1980s and 1990s, the Sonic & Knuckles Collection is optimized for contemporary desktop computers.
