Super Insta-Shield

At one point in development, Super Sonic was supposed to have his own Insta-Shield which was superior to its predecessor. This Insta-Shield would be activated the same way as the Insta-Shield, except once activated, it would release a golden wave of energy instead of white that had a greater range and would last a whole second before having to recharge for about two seconds. This was removed because if it is used, the game will freeze for about three minutes and for some unknown reason, send Sonic to Hidden Palace Zone where the game would subsequently crash.

The move was found in the sprite files.
