A mockup of Dust Hill Zone.

Dust Hill Zone was the name given to a desert level intended to be featured in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Mega Drive.[1]

Description

Dust Hill Zone is a desert, decorated with cacti and assorted plants. The tiles were designed to at some point be used in a winter-themed stage, transforming the sand into snow and the cacti into Christmas trees. The player would navigate terrain both aboveground and belowground, where there were snow/sand tunnels.[2]

Development

Dust Hill Zone was created by Brenda Ross,[2] one of the final level artists added to the Sonic 2 development team. It was referred to in an early concept sketch as Sabaku Zone (literally "Desert Zone"). Time constraints kept the Zone from being added to the final product.
