From Sonic Retro
Revision as of 16:47, 24 October 2013 by Megalodon ("Pipes" should not be capitalized after Mad Gear Zone)
In Sonic 3's Icecap Zone, as well as Sonic 3D Blast's Diamond Dust Zone, bursts of steam will condense around the player and freeze them in ice. If the current game is with both Sonic and Tails, one character can jump on the other to free them, but otherwise they will take damage upon breaking free of the ice. In Sonic 3, steam is shot from unbreakable machines on the ceiling as well as from Robotnik's machine in the Act 2 boss.
