Sonic and the Secret Rings
Lost Prologue

Next World >>

Lost Prologue is the first World in Sonic and the Secret Rings, preceding Sand Oasis. Its Action Stages are mostly tutorials, but it also has two Time Trials. It serves as the entrance to the world of the Arabian Nights, which is filled with swirling paper.

He proceeds to blast Sonic with a firebolt in Sonic's attempt to protect Shahra. Sonic then rushes to Sand Oasis to try and save King Shahryar.
