|Aquatic Ruin Zone|
|Name||Aquatic Ruin Zone|
|Franchise||Sonic the Hedgehog|
A crumbling, semi-submerged stonework ruin, this Zone sports a couple of main terrain features that make it unique compared to the others. Water, for one; the movement speed underwater is much slower, so be prepared. Like with the Mega Mack from Chemical Plant Zone, if the player stays underwater for too long, the player will eventually drown. To avoid drowning, stand near a small pile of air bubbles on the ground and wait for a big bubble to rise. There are also alternate paths to avoid the water altogether.
The ancient stone pillars that lie dotted around Aquatic Ruin are riddled with traps. Some will rise up when you approach and you must jump on them to destroy them. These can be dangerous in conjunction with the arrows fired out by other pillars, but otherwise they are not a threat.
