After the rather unusual reflective images of Robotnik's fortress in the first two acts of Crystal Egg Zone, the scenery in Act 3 changes to a more customary final level - namely, hard, cold steel, and deadly electricity everywhere. The game's last boss takes place inside a lightning chamber, which Eggman makes extra-fatal by throwing gyrating, flower-shaped energy bolts into the mix. However, the boss actually isn't that difficult if Sonic stays inside the poorly thought out (on Robotnik's part) transport chutes until the chamber clears, at which point he can leap out, attack the scientist's cockpit, and dive back in to safety before his attacks renew themselves.

End Sequence

His final machine destroyed, Eggman beats a hasty retreat down an escape chute. Sonic gives chase, but not quickly enough to stop the Eggman from escaping via a teleporter. Before Sonic leaves, Tails will warp in through the teleport terminal.
