Doctor Robotnik's Freeze-O-Matic is a floating vehicle that possesses extra armor and refrigeration tubes. There is an extensible tube below the machine that connects a small platform with spikes on the bottom and two snowblowers to the vehicle. The Freeze-O-Matic itself also features a snowblower right in front of its tube.
Features and abilities
The Freeze-O-Matic can fly. It is also equipped with snowblowers that it can use to freeze opponents. Another characteristic it has is that it can extend the tube it has below it.
After arriving in the battle area, Dr. Robotnik will extend the tube with the platform and starts hovering back and forth in the arena. During the battle, the Freeze-O-Matic fires a cold blast in one of three directions: either left or right from the weapon extended out of the machine's bottom, or down from the bottom of the Freeze-O-Matic itself. For a short time after the fight begins, these blasts will occur in a regular pattern from left, then to center, then to right, and later to center, although they will later come in a random order. In some cases, Robotnik will even fire a cold blast downwards twice in succession. If the player gets hit by them, the playable character will be frozen similarly to the snowblowers throughout the zone. If Sonic and Tails are present, the other character can rescue a frozen character before he gets damaged by simply using a Spin Attack or itsvariants into the frozen character.
After landing six hits on the Freeze-O-Matic, the tube of the Freeze-O-Matic will break up. Two more hits are required to defeat it, most easily done from the front. The only real threat to the player at this point is the icy gas leaking out of the back of the damaged Freeze-O-Matic, which still has the same effect as before. After two hits, Robotnik will fly away while the mobile is destroyed.
