Act 5

  1. (Pink Spikes needed) At the beginning of the Act are two Wisp Capsules, one containing a Cyan Wisp and one containing a Pink Wisp. The player must take the Pink Wisp and transform into the Pink Spikes, then follow the path until they reach metal crates with the first Red Star Ring underneath. They can then smash the crates to collect it.
  2. (Cyan Laser needed) Sometime after the first checkpoint, the player will come to an area with a Cyan Wisp capsule and some targets above. They must use the Cyan Laser to aim between the crates, causing them to be taken to a higher ledge with the second Red Star Ring.

  4. (Pink Spikes needed) In the same area as the second Red Star Ring, the player must grab the Pink Wisp and proceed to the location of the third Red Star Ring. At the top of the hole, they should transform into the Pink Spikes and jump toward the wall on the left, then follow the wall up and right to go around to the other side. The player can jump to collect the fourth Red Star Ring on the metal crate.
  5. (Pink Spikes and Cyan Laser needed) The player must first collect the Pink Wisp near the second Red Star Ring, then go up to the right and transform into the Pink Spikes. As the Spikes, they should collect the Cyan Wisp nearby and climb up the wall where the third Red Star Ring is, then jump onto the opposite wall and go to the location of the fourth Red Star Ring. The player should wait on the ceiling directly above the last metal crate until their power runs out and Sonic reverts back to normal, which should cause him to fall on top of the crate next to the Red Star Ring and still have the Cyan Wisp's color power ready to use. The player can then aim at the optical cable on the right with the Cyan Laser, and doing so will take them behind the Goal Ring, where the fifth and final Red Star Ring is.

Nintendo DS

Act 1

  1. (Boost needed) After using the first Zip Line in the Act at a high enough speed, the player will be flung up into the air. Use an Air Boost at the peak of the jump to reach a shortcut and boost through a destroyable wall where the first Red Star Ring will be behind.
  2. (Red Burst needed) Very shortly after the first Red Star Ring, the player will hit a Spring and be sent upwards to the air where a Red Wisp Wisp Capsule is. Upon hitting the capsule, immediately activate the Red Burst and use a couple of its jumps to go straight upwards where the second Red Star Ring is.
  3. On the middle route there will be a Grind Rail that curves straight down, which leads to the third Red Star Ring.
  4. On the Bottom path after the giant loop followed by a small one, there will be a brief water section (which can be skipped by running on the water if the player has the Boost unlocked), after which there will be three floating platforms. The fourth Red Star Ring will be on the third platform before the Spring.
  5. (Red Burst needed) The fifth Red Star Ring is on the top path right before the Hang Glider section. This top path can only be reached by using the Red Burst.

Act 2

  1. The first Red Star Ring is at the end of the Ferris Wheel chase at the start of the Act. If the Ferris Wheel somehow gets ahead of the player without crushing them, it will block off the Red Star Ring.
  2. (Red Burst needed) After the first Red Star Ring, there will be a brief water section (which can be skipped by boosting on the water) followed by a Red Wisp on top of a floating platform. Use the Red Burst to quickly traverse the Red Burst section on the higher path and at the end there will be the second Red Star Ring which can only be reached with the Red Burst, next to an overhanging wall before a ramp.
  3. On the top path, there will be four destroyable walls before a small hole. Boost through the walls, jump over the hole and Air Boost through the wall on the other side to reach the third Red Star Ring.
  4. (Red Burst needed) Right after the third Red Star Ring, there will be a ramp. Use the Air Boost to reach a Red Burst section. Use the Red Burst and follow the path shown by the Rings, without hitting the Exploding Balloons and at the end will be a large room with tons of Rings. The fourth Red Star Ring will be in the middle of the room, surrounded by four Spinners.
  5. (Red Burst needed) Near the end of the Act there will be a Spring that launches Sonic up past a tall destroyable wall with a Red Wisp behind it. Boost through it, and follow the path. Jump past the downwards slope and activate the Red Burst and follow the path shown by the Rings. While still suing the Red Burst, land on the platform with the giant Eggman face and it will launch Sonic up to the fifth Red Star Ring.

Mission 1

  1. (Red Burst needed) At the first Red Burst section, follow the Rings and the Red Star Ring will be surrounded by three Spinners.
  2. The second Red Star Ring is on the top path after the Red Burst section. This can also be reached from the middle path after stomping down the trail of Rings with the Spinner floating above them, after the Zip Line.

Mission 2

  1. The first Red Star Ring is after the ramp where the third Red Star Ring was in Act 2.
  2. (Red Burst needed) The second Red Star Ring is straight upwards from where the fourth Red Star Ring was in Act 2. Use the Red Burst to keep jumping up to where it is.

Mission 3

  1. Jump onto the Grind Rail at the start of the mission and keep following the path. Eventually there will be a line of flower platforms with a Red Star Ring at the end.
  2. Shortly after, there will be a loop followed by a downwards slope. Jump over the slope and there will be a path with the second Red Star Ring at the start.
