Story

Sonic the Hedgehog

After Angel Island has once again fallen into the ocean, Sonic and Tails comes to Icecap in search of a Chaos Emerald. After fighting Eggman's Badniks on the outside of the mountain, Sonic and Tails enter inside to where they must get up to the top to escape. Once out of the mountain however, an avalanche occurs, forcing Sonic and Tails to snowboard down the mountain to escape. Once on the other side of the mountain, Sonic and Tails find the Chaos Emerald they are seeking.

Trivia

  • In Sonic's version of Icecap, Sonic can be seen strutting along the peculiar bridge; even an enemy is there. In the final game, the bridge was replaced by a Rocket to get to the second area, and the same one crushed during the snowboard action, as seen below.
  • The presence of houses, windmills and hot air balloons in Icecap seems to suggest that Knuckles may not be the only inhabitant of Angel Island, with the exception of the Animals.
