Story
European & American
The evil scientist, Dr Robotnik, has unleashed his most diabolical plot yet to turn the animals of Planet Mobius into robots. His monstrous contraption, the Veg-O-Fortress, built on Mt. Mobius, is already transforming happy creatures into mindless slaves!

Dr. Robotnik's fiendish machine draws its power from the mountain's volcano. Fiery lava fuels the lethal Pinball Defence System that protects the Fortress.

Sonic and his pal, Tails, mount an air assault on the Fortress, only to be blasted in mid-flight by Robotnik's cannons. Sonic is knocked into deep waters near the volcano. But he has friends in wet places - and is saved at the last moment!

Sonic sneaks into the Toxic Caves below the Fortress. From there, he infiltrates Robotnik's vast and deadly defence. In no time at all, Sonic starts swiping emeralds, freeing the animals of Mobius, and dishing out hedgehog justice!

Yo, Robotnik! You're in for a mountain of trouble now. Sonic is spinning into action!

Notes
* Like a lot of the US created Sonic games that were made around the time of the cartoons, This game features many characters from the cartoon 'Sonic The Hedgehog'. These are different characters in one of the bonus rounds and the badnik 'Cluck' in the First Level.
* The Colour of Sally Acorn, seams to show it was Early in SatAM Creation (Same reason why Archie Comics has her Pink).
* Scratch, from AOSTH also appears in a Hidden level of the game.

The Lost Features
Day time Attack?
This early Sonic Spinball image seams to show the intro but not only is Robotnik's Veg-o-Fortress a bit different, but Sonic is attacking in a clear daytime, not the dark skied night time of the final version.
Game Map?
Much like the Game Gear version had, this image seam to show that the MegaDrive version of Sonic Spinball originally had a screen to show what level you were on, or an extended Intro. Notice that Robotnik wears.. some odd outfit.. he wears that in the game too.. really weird.
I'm standing by the lamppost at the corner of the street...
It seams a couple of images of Sonic Spinball's pre-released version shows Sonic being able to stand on the tops of bumpers like this. It seams a bit unknown if this was an error in programming at the time, but there are a couple of shots of these feature..
I am your Dentist!
This is an interesting Look at an earlier version of the Bonus Table. Notice the image on the scoreboard?. Also, the table design is a bit different and if you can see, the Sonic in the background has Blue arms -_-
