"It's not 3D, and it's far from a blast.
Game Gear owners had it rough. Not only did the handheld drain batteries quickly, but it never saw the level of support of its competitor, the Game Boy. However, the Game Gear did have its fair share of exclusives, including several Sonic the Hedgehog games. Sonic Blast, which was released at the same time as Sonic 3D Blast on Genesis, is one of them. Despite the game being a sidescroller instead of an isometric 3D platformer, it does share one major thing in common with the Genesis game: it’s not very good.", writes NintendoWorldReport.
