EPILEPSY WARNING. This is a weird glitch that can happen in Sonic Lost World's casino stage, Frozen Factory 3. The glitch happens on the second pinball table. Essentially, what happens is the screen starts spazzing out and flashing in a strobe-like manner at 24 Hz. While the glitch is in effect, the game will lag a ton, you won't be able to control Sonic, and you'll be stuck there until you get a time over and die; after that, you'll respawn in the pinball table and everything will be back to normal.

I've done this twice, but I'm not completely sure what causes it, although I'm pretty sure it's related to the pinball flippers. My theory is that it has something to do with Sonic getting stuck on a flipper. Going frame-by-frame, Sonic seems to get stuck on the tip of the flipper, then he disappears briefly before the flashing and distortion begins.

I'm a bit worried about this one since this type of effect can potentially cause seizures in epileptics. If you suffer from epilepsy, then you might want to avoid going to the second pinball table; it's a bonus area and can be completely avoided with no ill effects other than not being able to get one red star ring. It's accessed by jumping on top of the stack of chips at the end of the second main room. I don't believe the glitch happens on the first pinball table (which is required to complete the level), but I could be wrong about that. I'm also not an expert on epilepsy so I hope I'm not blowing this out of proportion. :P

Soo yeah... how bout a patch, Sega?
