Spring Stadium Zone is the third Zone of Sonic 3D Blast for the Sega Mega Drive, Sega Saturn and PC.


Spring Stadium Zone is the first Robotnik facility which Sonic reaches on Flicky Island, and it's built very much in the style of Sonic the Hedgehog's Spring Yard Zone: a mad fusion of bouncy, pinball fun and spiked pits of death.



As with the other Zones in this game, Spring Stadium consists of two standard Acts followed by a third Act containing only the boss fight. In Acts 1 and 2, Sonic must free the captured Flickies from inside Badniks, depositing five of the birds into a Goal Ring to progress between sections of the Act (usually three per Act).

Many of the spring-pads set into the floor are fakes, but others will send the blue hedgehog shooting into the air, enabling him to access high ledges or leap straight over the aforementioned spike pits, and cunning spike pits they are too; there are also retracting metal blades that the player can just about run across safely if he/she is quick. But if the player loses his/her Flickies in one of them, they will have quite a frustratingly tough time recollecting them all.


Act 1

Act 2

Act 3



The boss of Spring Stadium Zone.

Dr. Robotnik pilots this boss contraption around the spiky arena, occasionally swooping down low in an effort to pulp Sonic with the machine's flailing mechanical arms. The key to victory is dodging round behind the doctor and spin-jump to hit him. Another way is to leap on the springs at the top of the arena, reaching a spike-filled ledge that's high enough so the player can attack the scientist even when he's up in the air.
