Sonic Runners Adventure
Sky Sanctuary

Sky Sanctuary is the fourth and final playable stage in Sonic Runners Adventure. This stage is a re-imagination of Sky Sanctuary Zone from Sonic & Knuckles.


Sky Sanctuary takes place high above the clouds, so much that the background is dominated by a thick cloud cover, with only the Death Egg being visible in the horizon. Emerging from the cloud cover in a few places are Sky Sanctuary's signature ruins, such as its towers and aqueducts. The main playable path is a simple road with a few flowers, ivy and bushes along it.

Supposedly, Sky Sanctuary has a mysterious power flowing through it that is ideal for powering Eggman's Mind Control Ray.[1]


While hunting Dr. Eggman, Team Sonic would follow the doctor to Sky Sanctuary, only to lose him. While Team Sonic looked around for Eggman however, Knuckles noticed that Eggman was using the ruins for something. Eventually, Eggman used a Mind Control Ray on Sonic to escape Sonic when he found him, and Tails and Knuckles soon realize what Eggman has been doing all along: Eggman used the Mind Control Ray to take control of Tails back on South Island, and had been setting up to control the whole world with a Mind Control Ray powered by the Extractor on Lava Mountain (which Knuckles destroyed earlier) and the latent energies flowing through Sky Sanctuary.

Resolving to keep Eggman from using his weapon at all, Team Sonic destroyed the Mind Control Ray. Sonic then stepped and defeated Eggman for good once more. As he fled, Eggman vowed revenge, but Sonic promised that he and the others would be ready when the time came.


Like other levels in Sonic Runners Adventure, levels in Sky Sanctuary 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 features a mix of levels ideal for Speed, Fly and Power Type characters.
