|Green Hill Zone
Tumble down rolling hills and splash through the chilling waters in an underground cavern. Bounce on springboards but not on spikes. Ouch!
Quickly cross the bridges before they crumble, or else you'll end up in the bottom of the lake! Jump from seesaws to reach high cliffs. Good timing is the key to success.
Wild flowers and exotic plants surround you in the damp, dark jungle.
Explore an intricate maze filled with water. A countdown begins to let you know when you are running out of oxygen. Breathing air bubbles keeps you from drowning.
|Scrap Brain Zone
Soar past shimmering city lights. Then dash into a metal labyrinth that's full of dangerous booby traps. The conveyor belts are slippery - watch out!
|Sky Base Zone
Fend off deadly laser beams and lethal missile shots. Now you've reached Dr. Robotnik's hideout - the blimp. Face him and erase him!
After beating Robotnik, Sonic returns to Green Hill Zone to destroy Robotnik once and for all. If you've collected all the Chaos Emeralds, you see an extra sequence where the Emeralds float into the air and clean up a cloud of pollution over the island.
The 8-bit version of Sonic has a nice extra feature which the Megadrive version doesn't: pre-level map screens. The maps show Sonic's progress across the island.
