Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine GENESIS/MEGADRIVE Version
The first Western Puyo Puyo release with a Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog storyline

Alternate Titles:

Also known as Dr. Robotnik and His Mean Bean Machine in parts of Europe.

Story Summary:

These Beans Need Your Help!

Dr. Robotnik, that malicious mastermind of planet Mobius, is always coming up with new ways to menace the world and its inhabitants. Witness his newest plan: the Mean Bean-Steaming Machine, a nasty device that changes the jolly folk of Beanville into devious little robots that will help the deranged doctor rid Mobius of music and fun forever!

Robotnik's henchbots are rounding up all the unfortunate bean folk they can find and grouping them together in dark dungeons. Once four or more beans are grouped together, they are sent to the Mean Bean Machine and a horrible fate!

Here's where you come in: You can group the bean folk together and allow them to escape! However, there is only a short time before the holding area overfills and bursts open. To make matters worse, the henchbots have noticed you, and are trying to find a way to short-circuit your plans for good!

You must move more beans through your dungeon than the henchbot jailer next to you, and at the same time bust your enemy's dungeon wide open. If you succeed, you'll be sent up the line to deal with the wilier henchbots, and eventually with that rotten Robotnik himself!

The beans are counting on you!
