Christmas

Added in Demo 4
Dates: Dec 24 - Jan 6
Parameter: -xmas

When activated, several of the game's graphics, including many of the textures used by the Single Player levels, are replaced with Christmas-themed graphics. The music is replaced by Christmas tunes.

Additional features exclusive to Demo 4 - Demo 4.35:

  • After clearing THZ1, a cutscene plays in which Santa Claus asks Sonic to help him find his stolen clothes. This is followed by Christmas Hunt Zone, a level in which the player must hunt for pieces of Santa Claus' clothes.
  • After clearing Christmas Hunt Zone, another cutscene plays in which Santa awards Sonic the ability to use the Snow Buster, allowing the player to fire snowballs at enemies in any level using the Ring Throw button (each snowball costs a ring to use).
  • Christmas Match Zone, a level based on the inner portion of Christmas Hunt Zone, takes the place of MAP06 as a Match stage.
