|Eighteenth level, Sonic Drift 2|
In addition to its numerous other iterations, the Death Egg serves as the final racecourse in Sonic Drift 2 for the Sega Game Gear. This stage is the sixth track of the Blue Chaos GP (Blue being the hardest of the three available tournaments), coming after Milky Way, and also serves as the venue for the Final GP, a two-car battle around just this one course. As with most other races in the Chaos Grand Prix, you have to complete three laps of the track to finish, and the fastest racer gets a Chaos Emerald.
The Death Egg racetrack appears to be constructed on the outside of Robotnik's battlestation, if the starry sky is any indication. Mirrored surfaces line the track, reflecting the starlight back off the metallic ground, and in the distance, massive steel facilities and megawatt spotlights crowd the artificial horizon.
From a practical racing standpoint, Death Egg is a cornering nightmare, with straight sections of track few and far between. On the plus side, you can't fall off, but the sparking electric pylons scattered around the sides of the course will zap the rings right out of you if you slam into them.
