Ice Cap (Sonic Drift 2)
From Sonic Retro
|Ninth level, Sonic Drift 2|
|Level theme: winter|
|← Rainy Savanna | Mystic Cave →|
Ice Cap appears as a racecourse in Sonic Drift 2 for the Sega Game Gear. This stage is the third track of the White Chaos GP (White being the intermediate of the three available tournaments), coming after Rainy Savanna and before Hill Top. Although the rest of the White GP appears to take place on West Side Island, Ice Cap obviously sees the racers divert (somehow) upwards, to Knuckles' floating home.
The course is fairly straightforwards, with only tinted ice to slow you down if you stray off the track (as opposed to the yawning bottomless pits which grace some of the courses). Giant snowflakes scattered on the road are as evanescent as you would expect, and don't even slow you down if you plough into them. Ice Cap also features massive snow banks on the outside of some corners, which Sonic and company can drive up. As with most other races in the Chaos Grand Prix, you have to complete three laps of the track to proceed, and the fastest racer gets a Chaos Emerald.
