Frozen Factory is the fourth world of the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Lost World, set in a winter wonderland with industrial refineries.

Zone 1

Unlike in the Wii U/PC version, Zone 1 in the 3DS version opens with a section where Sonic rides a snowboard, very similarly to IceCap Zone and Ice Cap. While riding the snowboard, the player can launch off ramps by pressing R at the right moment, then perform tricks in the air by pressing B. After the snowboarding section, the player will traverse an icy terrain where the 3DS-exclusive Ivory Lightning Color Power can be used to destroy Badniks and latch on to electrical poles. Eventually, the player will go through puzzles where they must push snowballs through mazes full of rolling gears and push them on switches to advance.

Zone 2

Unlike the first Zone, Zone 2 is completely in 2.5D. There are plenty of icy platforms to traverse, rails to grind, and ice blowers that will freeze Sonic solid. Unlike the Wii U/PC version, Sonic will not skate or do pirouettes on the ice, but ice physics still apply.

Zone 3

Zone 3 is very similar to Zone 1, and can potentially be one of the longest levels in the game if the player doesn't know what they're doing. This Zone is broken into multiple sections where the player must push snowballs around and put them into holes to open capsules containing items and Springs to advance them through the level. A snowball will not fit into a hole unless it has reached a big-enough size by rolling it around on the snow and ice. After the first area, a snowman head will appear and start stalking Sonic throughout the level, freezing him upon contact, and will destroy any snowball it bumps into. The only thing Sonic can do to it is stun it by hitting it with a Homing Attack.



Skate along the icy paths of Frozen Factory at lightning speed as the mechanical arctic islands turn into a casino filled extravaganza.
