    General Info
    Intro
    Sonic Drift 1 was released ONLY on Japanese shores making it near impossible to play in America without the aid of an emulator! The playable characters are Sonic, Tails, Amy, and Dr. Eggman himself - better known as Robotnik! It could be called Mario Kart with Sonic and company but with a twist. For one thing this game was released BEFORE Mario Kart so that rules it out as a carbon copy. The only obvious differences are the "special abilities" that can be used after collecting two Rings. This game is not as good as its counterpart Sonic Drift 2 but that doesn't mean its not worth a play! Not only that but you get to revisit the old zones from Sonic 1 as well - even if they are only through a race. So get yourself strapped in - Its time for a little "Sonic Drift" !!!

    *** NOTE *** The game is split up into 3 Chaos Grand prix modes - Green Chaos, Yellow Chaos, and Red Chaos - Green being the easiest, Yellow being the medium area, and Red being hardest. The following walkthrough is based on the Green Chaos GP mode.

    Story

    Its a sunny day as Sonic, Amy, and Tails are walking along the shoreline of South Island when out of nowhere comes the Eggman himself - None other than Dr. Robotnik in his Egg-O-Matic !!! And here's when he lays his ultimatum - A race against Sonic and company in the ruins of the zones where he and the blue blur first met in Sonic The Hedgehog One! To the victor goes several Chaos Emeralds - Emeralds can only be ascertained when reaching first place! The Eggman's turned several parts of the old zones into a raceway and he's got plans for those emeralds - and they dont include a spiny blue hedgehog! So its up to Sonic, Tails, and Amy to stop Robotnik by beating him in what will become the first annual "Chaos Grand Prix"!!!!
