Sonic Jam was a Sega Saturn game which was basically one of Sonic’s few performances on the platform. Except there was also a catch.

While it features a short 3D level similar to Sonic Adventure, it’s less than meets the eye.

It was basically a re-release of the main Sega Genesis games. Which was a decent deal at the time, and remember this came long before Sonic Mega Collection as well.

Sega even made a version for Tiger’s short-lived Game.com handheld. The idea was basically the same.

It obviously didn’t have a 3D level of course, but it did look a lot like Sonic on Genesis.

Except it wasn’t all the games in one cartridge, they were merely a collection of levels in a remixed package. Which kind of bites.
