Sonic Runners Adventure
Desert Ruins are a yellow desert area with a blue sky above it. On the main playable path are blue-shaded curbs with blocky shapes below them, and along them are red-thorned cacti and prickly bushes. In the background on the other hand are pyramids, obelisks, and other Egyptian structures. Across the desert are also a few lakes and sand twisters.
Arriving through a robot teleporter from Green Hill during their hunt for Dr. Eggman, Tails notices that Sonic was injured during the transfer process. As such, he has Sonic stay and rest while he goes ahead. After asking the local Animals about Eggman, Tails finds one of the doctor's strongholds and several of his robots stirring up dust devils. Although Tails manages to shut down the stronghold, the Badniks keep on coming, so he regroups with Sonic, who soon spots Eggman, and together they chase the doctor down. Despite facing new Badnik hordes along the way, Tails catches up to Eggman and defeats him. Recuperating, Eggman makes another escape, leaving Sonic and Tails to chase after him once more.
Like other levels in Sonic Runners Adventure, levels in Desert Ruins have the playable characters running down a path ridden with obstacles, gimmicks and enemies non-stop, and it is the player's job to keep themselves alive until they reach the goal. Along the way, the player can complete certain mission objectives (a few of which are needed to complete the level). The stage is ideal for Fly Type characters.
