Like its original version, Green Hill Zone is a tropical paradise of palm trees with mountains and a beautiful lake with bright blue waters in the background. In its new foreground, the Zone carries beyond the original vibrant flowers with a series of bridges in the style of [[Emerald Hill Zone]]. The Zone now features cavern areas similar to those presented in ''[[Green Hill Zone (8-bit)|Sonic the Hedgehog 8-bit]]'' and ''[[Green Hill (Sonic Generations)|Sonic Generations]]'', featuring a beautiful subterranean lake in the background and small rock formations, as well as pools of water to wade through. While most characters begin in the same place as in the Zone's original appearance, Knuckles starts in the caves.
  
Act 2, however, has a whole new art style based on the prototype version of Green Hill Zone from the Tokyo Toy Show 1990 demo. The background presents distant mountains, now much closer. The player begins in the cave at the end of the first act. The lower areas feature rock formations with smaller vegetation and new models of totems, now larger, following the same pattern as the smaller ones. The stage follows with a series of gimmicks and other new things compared to its original version. Among them is the use of zip lines and small underwater areas like in the 8-bit version of Green Hill Zone. In addition, the spiky bridges can now be burned with a [[Fire Shield]], opening the way to new areas.

Green Hill Zone is the first Zone of Sonic Mania, which is based on Green Hill Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic, Tails and Knuckles begin their adventure here after the Phantom Ruby was excavated by the Hard Boiled Heavies.

Overview

Like its original version, Green Hill Zone is a tropical paradise of palm trees with mountains and a beautiful lake with bright blue waters in the background. In its new foreground, the Zone carries beyond the original vibrant flowers with a series of bridges in the style of Emerald Hill Zone. The Zone now features cavern areas similar to those presented in Sonic the Hedgehog 8-bit and Sonic Generations, featuring a beautiful subterranean lake in the background and small rock formations, as well as pools of water to wade through. While most characters begin in the same place as in the Zone's original appearance, Knuckles starts in the caves.

Act 2, however, has a whole new art style based on the prototype version of Green Hill Zone from the Tokyo Toy Show 1990 demo. The background presents distant mountains, now much closer. The player begins in the cave at the end of the first Act. The lower areas feature rock formations with smaller vegetation and new models of totems, now larger, following the same pattern as the smaller ones. The stage follows with a series of gimmicks and other new things compared to its original version. Among them is the use of zip lines and small underwater areas like in the 8-bit version of Green Hill Zone. In addition, the spiky bridges can now be burned with a Fire Shield, opening the way to new areas.

After defeating the boss, the player jumps into a hole and is teleported by the Phantom Ruby to Chemical Plant Zone.

Encore Mode

In Encore Mode, Green Hill Zone is given a palette that suggests a sunset setting similar to Sunset Hill from Sonic Advance 3 and Splash Hill Zone Act 3 from Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I. If the player started the game with Mighty, they can use his Hammer Drop move near the beginning of Act 1 to access an underground route which was originally Knuckles' exclusive route in Mania Mode.
