The objective of the entire level is simply to dodge obstacles and not touch Robotnik. If the player does not have a Flame Shield, he/she must land on platforms and not touch the ground. Robotnik will shoot mines, so the player must be aware to dodge them. Robotnik will tilt the lava in a diagonal arc and hope to drag the player to touch the boss. Unfortunately for Robotnik, due to tilting the lava, the mines will also land on him, damaging his own vehicle.
