Sonic the Hedgehog Pocket Adventure
Sky Chase Zone is the fifth Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog Pocket Adventure. Based on the Zone of the same name in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, it is the first single-Act Zone in the game with no boss. After Sonic receives a sharp left-hook towards the sky from Knuckles, he lands conveniently on the top wing of Tornado piloted by Tails. They then pursue Doctor Eggman who has managed to steal the purple Chaos Emerald.
Sky Chase Zone is highly similar to the Zone of the same name in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, with the Zone constantly moving forward via auto scrolling. The player will be standing on top of the wings of the Tornado, giving the player very little space to stand on. The player will have to fight the airborne Badniks as they move towards the end of the Zone. The player must avoid falling off the biplane or platforms as the lower part of auto scrolling Zone functions as bottomless pit.
The player is able to move the Tornado the same way as the playable character and perform Spin Jump or Spin Dash with Sonic. As for moving and jumping, the Tornado keeps following below the playable character. In addition, small floating platforms will along the route, usually place above or below the pathway. Some of them have Item Boxes or hidden Spikes popping out of them.
