Cyber Track (サイバートラック Saibā Torakku) is the sixth zone in Sonic Advance 3. It shares traits with two levels from the previous Sonic Advance release: it's much like Techno Base, regarding it's a digital-themed level, and like Egg Utopia, in that the gravity shifts by itself, often indicated by arrows on the "wall" pointing up or down. Like many other levels in Sonic Advance 3, this level is abundant with bottomless pits which makes the highest route often the safest, though it is possible to fall off the top of the screen due to the reversed gravity.

Other gimmicks to encounter in this zone include wheels with their own gravity, cannons that catapult the player across a course like the ones seen in Sonic Advance's Cosmic Angel Zone, and platforms that disintegrate when stood on. This zone also brings back a few gimmicks from past zones, such as the giant clackers from Toy Kingdom and the rail platform rides from Ocean Base.

Act 3 of this zone ends with another fight with Gemerl, who utilizes all of his previous moves plus a new shield technique that initially guards him from your attacks and the ability to dash across the screen and release a wave of homing missiles. If Sonic is in the lead when Act 3 is finished, Cream will appear, claiming to have gotten lost, and be unlocked for the player to use in the main game and Time Attack.

Enemies

  • Clam - A clam robot that shoots three energy pellets at an upward angle when approached.
  • Guruguru - A Catakiller, Jr.-like badnik that flies about in place. Only the head is vulnerable.
  • Kamaki - Praying mantis robot similar to the Slicer. Attacks by throwing its claws at the player.
  • Kyacchaa - A spider robot that descends from ceilings to grab the player, similar to a Grabber.

Trivia

  • The music for this zone was remixed for a jingle that was intended to be played when the Time Break skill is used in Sonic Generations, but it never plays. It was included in the OST release, though.
  • In Act 3, there are parts of the stage that are references to Chemical Plant Zone Act 2 from Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
