Diamond Dust Zone is the fourth Zone of Sonic 3D Blast for the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Saturn.


As with the other zones in this game, Diamond Dust consists of two standard Acts followed by a third Act containing only the boss fight. In Acts 1 and 2, Sonic must free captured Flickies inside Badniks, depositing five of the birds into a Goal Ring to progress between sections of the level (usually three per Act). This Zone is filled with snow blowers that can freeze Sonic, which doesn't damage him, but forces him to jump a few times to break himself free. There are also rivers of slush that Sonic can walk one, but lead to frozen spikes, as well as frozen crystal that he can break by spinning, but still hurt him if he touches them. Geographically, the Zone is located on Flicky Island, presumably on the outer slopes of its volcano, considering the next stage.



The boss of Diamond Dust Zone

In keeping with the icy theme, Dr. Robotnik has augmented his Egg Mobile with eight freezing-gas pods he has dotted around the level. Robotnik begins as usual, hovering tantalizingly above Sonic's reach, but he'll soon swoop down and attempt to blast the hedgehog with a jet of cryogenic vapor. The nozzles fire cyclically, so the player must land a hit on Robotnik when the wave of chilling gas is on the other side of his vehicle. To spice things up a bit, Robotnik occasionally drops exploding snowmen onto the battlefield.
