Techno Tower is a one of five main stages in Chaotix that make up Newtrogic High Zone. As the name implies it is a tower (or a series of towers) which overlooks the island.
During development the stage was known as Resort Hotel.
Techno Tower is more vertical than any other level in the game and is easiest for characters such as Knuckles, Charmy, and Vector who maneuver well in the air. The level has an abundance of Grow and Shrink items, the former of which can be used to scale the tower quickly. Techno Tower is also known for its strange Eggman billboards scattered across the level that appear solid at first, but then turn translucent as the player approaches them, revealing hidden goodies such as Giant Rings.
Later Acts in the stage feature a hovering vehicle mounted with a drill on the front that will automatically move to the right when the player gets in. The drill will break down any wall that gets in the vehicle's way. After breaking through walls, the vehicle breaks down, and the player can continue onward.
|There's only one direction to go, and that's up. Race through the vertical maze, searching for hidden bonuses. Robotnik billboards often hide surprises.
