Eggmanland is the final level of Sonic Unleashed. A dark, cyberpunk-ish city ruled by Eggman, Eggmanland is suspended over magma, and contains elements of an amusement park. In the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, Sonic switches between normal and Werehog forms during the extra-long stage itself to reach the end, using special hourglass objects.

After restoring six of the seven Chaos Emeralds, Sonic and Chip return to Professor Pickle's lab in Shamar to hear that the final Temple of Gaia is right under Eggman's base. Hopping in Tails' Tornado to get there via Tornado Defense 2, Sonic dives into his fat nemesis' latest machine city to finish the job of restoring the planet.
After finally clearing the gargantuan level and restoring the grey Chaos Emerald, Sonic and Chip are ambushed right outside the Temple by Eggman's Egg Dragoon, beginning the lengthy trial of 3 last boss fights.
Unleashed is not the first time we have heard of Eggmanland. This place has been Eggman's supposed dream base, and has been referenced in many titles before Sonic Unleashed, all the way back to Sonic Adventure where the Doctor first declared his intention to build Eggmanland upon the ruins of Station Square, as well as having a mention in Sonic Rush. Eggmanland was also the name for Eggman's base in the Japanese version of the Sonic OVA; in English it was called "Robotropolis".
Hub - Eggmanland

— World Map description
In the PS3 / 360 versions of the game, Eggmanland's hub is not visited during the main plot, but can be accessed after defeating Perfect Dark Gaia. The Egg Fighter citizens prove remarkably accomodating to their creator's number one enemy, and somehow, Don Fachio's has set up a hot dog franchise even in this dystopic machine hell.
The hub world of Eggmanland is unique from others, in the way that it is the only hub world to also be an entrance stage (which is ironic, due to the fact it is the smallest hub world in the game). Sonic and Chip actually walk through the hub world in just the opening cutscene for Eggmanland, and it also has the statue and large gate in the shape of Eggman's head.
EF-MD1991: Originally among the oldest of the Egg Fighters, he now mans one of Eggmanland's shops. His work ethic and loyalty to Eggman are unrivaled, but the years have made their work on his AI. These days, you never know what's going out of his mouth next.
EF-DC1998: Once a model mainstay of the Egg Fighter force, this robot's gotten tired of working, and often does his best to sneak off and avoid his duties these days.
EF-XB2006: As one of the newest additions to the Egg Fighters, he still lacks real world experience, and spends most of his time studying.
Hot Dog Vendor: The manager of Don Fachio's Eggmanland location. Beating his missions nets you the coveted Doggone Dog.
- Note that the Egg Fighter's names reference major Sonic games:
|Food||Poppin' Eggcorn||Egg Candy||Egg Dog||Egg Puff||Egg-squisite lunch|
|Souveniers||Miniature Flag||Photo frame||Egg balloon||Eggman poster||Egg goggles|
(Chip has a "hatred" for all the food in Eggmanland)
Act - Eggmanland
In the PS3 / 360 version, Eggmanland has only one, vast, combined day / night act, with Entrance Stage hourglasses inside the level itself to morph between Sonic the Werehog and Sonic the Hedgehog. The level is by far the most difficult in the game, and seemingly goes on forever. Use all the skills you've accrued over the rest of the game to succeed!
If Sonic completes the level, but dies whilst facing one of the three bosses near the end, you will start off at the battle for the Egg Dragoon, instead of at the beginning of Eggmanland itself.
Hot Dog Trials
This mission can be accessed by speaking with the chili dog vendor in Eggmanland after completing the game. Completing the level 1 mission unlocks the level 2 mission and earns 1 Doggone Dog, completing the level 2 mission unlocks the level 3 mission and earns 2 Doggone Dogs, completing the level 3 mission earns 3 Doggone Dogs and completing all of them will unlock the Hard Boiled Achievement. Since the stage has both Sonic and the Werehog on it, only the Time Trial is accessible.
It should be noted that finishing the level within the time limit is trivial; the hard part is not dying once.
