The Saturn version of Spot Goes to Hollywood uses the same concepts and core gameplay seen in the original Spot Goes to Hollywood, but is otherwise a very different game, with completely redesigned levels better suited to the console. Many problems with the original game were addressed, with the camera being less obstructive and the level design being more focused. There is also a CD audio soundtrack.
Spot Goes to Hollywood is comprised of three worlds which are split into five stages each (the fifth being a boss). There is a bonus stage between each world.
Bonus: Wild West
