Tropical Resort is the seventh level in the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Generations, and an adaptation of the original Tropical Resort from Sonic Colours. Like with Planet Wisp in the console/PC versions, Color Powers are used in this level, with each Sonic getting his own Wisp to find.

The enemies found here are Egg Pawns that will throw their "Welcome" signs at the Sonics, and Spinners that serve as Homing Attack chains.


Act 1

Classic Sonic follows the Nintendo DS version of the game in his Act, being able to collect Red Wisps and use the Red Burst from that game. While using Red Burst, Sonic will come across various gimmicks that help support the Color Power, including explosive Eggman balloons to bounce him upwards, jet-fueled catapults that launch him through walls, and floating fireballs that recharge his Color Power. The Act ends with Sonic riding a series of firework rockets to reach the Signpost at the top.

Act 2

On the other side, Modern Sonic collects Cyan Wisps and uses the Cyan Laser to careen through enemies at high speeds, or to propel himself at Prisms that will take him to higher routes. At the end of the Act, Sonic will be thrust into another do-or-die situation where he must grind across three parallel rails that are constantly bombarded by meteorites that will instantly kill him if he collides with them. To dodge the meteorites, the player must press Left or Right to switch rails and avoid the glowing red spots that mark where the meteorites will land.
