Aqua Lake Zone
Third level, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-bit)
Number of Acts: 3
Boss: Mecha Sea Lion
Underwater areas: Yes

Aqua Lake Zone is the third zone in the 8-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and takes place mostly underwater. This is one of the more difficult levels, mainly due to the chopiness from being underwater, coupled with the distance between air. The boss is another fairly easy one — you will fight a robotic sea lion with an explosive ball, who you must destroy.

Instruction Manual Description

Pick up speed and skim the surface of the lake, picking up Rings as you go. When you go under, don't go for too long without air, or you'll lose a Chance. Take a deep breath from bubbles that float up from some of the blocks. Or when a big bubble comes your way, use it to float toward the top of the screen.



  • Crabmeat — Crab bots that move back and forth in a small area. Every once in a while they pause to fire flashing projectiles in either direction.
  • Tagataga — Weird crustacean bots that swim back and forth in a small area. When they spot Sonic, they pause briefly to fire off a couple of flashing projectiles, then dash off the screen.
