Sonic Rush Adventure
Sonic in Sky Babylon
|Number of acts||
Sky Babylon can be the fifth or sixth Zone of Sonic Rush Adventure. If the player goes to Blizzard Peaks first, Sky Babylon will be the sixth stage. The whole stage takes place on a floating island, far up in the sky, similar to Angel Island, located in the Sol Dimension.
Being an island floating in the sky, Sky Babylon has a wide view of the sea below and has several ancient ruins and constructions all over the place, along with ancient and surprisingly advanced mechanisms.
In terms of gameplay style this level is similar to Sonic Rush's Altitude Limit. The gimmicks of this level feature golden balloons that allow the player to fly through the air but with limited control, springy lines of rope, and purple crystals that allow the player to hover over bottomless pits. This stage also features fire that can harm the player when he/she gets close, but the flames will be extinguished if the player is either boosting or playing as Blaze (making Blaze actually a better choice for the level, which is ironic since Blaze apparently has a fear of heights).
The stage's boss is the Ghost Condor. In battle, it can deploy mines along the road where the fight takes place and send platforms with spikes to attack the player from above or the side. It can also fire missiles if the player remains on its platforms for too long. Finally, it can send its main body down and launch it directly at the player.
