Description from the Instruction manual.

Gimmick Mountain Zone is the fifth Zone in the Master System and Game Gear game Sonic the Hedgehog 2. It follows Green Hills Zone and precedes Scrambled Egg Zone. As with the other stages in this game, Gimmick Mountain Zone consists of two standard Acts followed by a shorter, third Act which contains the Zone's boss.

The zone bears hallmarks of Scrap Brain Zone from the original Sonic the Hedgehog; traps are often seen, conveyor belts and those rotating circular disks which Sonic can somehow stick to the underside of. It is, however, clearly carved out of the inside of a mountain, as evidenced by the rocky backgrounds which Dr. Robotnik has grafted his inscrutable technology upon.

The boss, Pig-Boar Mecha

Pig-Boar Mecha charges from one end of the screen to another, dislodging heavy rocks from the ceiling when it impacts. On the plus side, it charges so hard and so fast that the mecha stuns itself when it collides with the side of the arena, retracting its spikes and giving Sonic a short window to do some damage.
