This page is about the original Jungle Zone. If you are looking for the Jungle Zone seen in the new Sonic Jump iOS game, you may find it here.

Jungle Zone is the third zone in Sonic the Hedgehog for Game Gear and Sega Master System. Like Bridge Zone, this zone is also unique to the SMS/GG game. It also has a unique type of level structure as the level is built vertically rather than horizontally.


A lush green jungle filled with Crabmeat critters and Newtron, who appears to shoot bullets at you. The level is filled with waterfalls and the platforms hover above a dark limpid river.


Wild flowers and exotic plants surround you in the damp, dark jungle. When you reach the turbulent waterfall, watch your step! One false move and you're gone for good!


Act 1

Sonic the Hedgehog - Jungle Zone Act 1.png This is the introductory level to the zone. You begin on a lower ledge of the left of the level, and most get to the right side. To do this, you must jump from ledge to ledge, pass behind waterfalls, and ride logs over streams. Swinging platforms help get you across large gaps.

Act One - Chaos Emerald - The Chaos Emerald is located on a ledge in this level, which can only be reached by floating on a log in the water at the bottom of the level.

Act 2

This level is vertical. You must jump from ledge to ledge, walk over log bridges, and scale floating platforms to climb up a waterfall. If you fall past the the bottom of the screen, Sonic loses a life. The Game Gear version lacks the falling off death. If you do fall- you fall back to the lower levels.

Act 3

The battle with Dr. Robotnik. Climb up the vines to reach the curved U-shape vine. Robotnik hovers above Sonic, periodically dropping bombs which roll around the vine, and blow up in the center. As in the first battle, Robotnik lowers. Jump on top of his ship. When you have beaten him, make a very large jump to the right of the vine.
