Silent Forest is the fifth world of the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Lost World. As the name implies, this level is set within the darkest forests of the Lost Hex, with some dark ruins to be found above the canopies. Early into this world, Tails is kidnapped by the Deadly Six.

Iron Material can be gathered here.


Zone 1

At the start of this Zone, the player is on a planetoid with flowers that catapult Sonic to three different areas he must clear. The first two areas begin with skydiving sequences, eventually leading to mazes of grey pillars that must be destroyed using the Gray Quake, and then use said Color Power to slam switches that activate bridges to allow the player to move forward. Along the way, Cluckers and giant turtle Badniks will try to impede progress and must be destroyed. After the first two areas are done, the player goes through one last skydiving sequence that leads to the capsule.

Zone 2

A great deal of the second Zone has Sonic grind on rails and cross disappearing bridges suspended above a massive chasm with few pieces of land between them, with the occasional Spinner that Sonic must attack to reach distant rails. Most of the pieces of land require the player to defeat Badniks such as Moto Bugs, Slicers and Orbinauts, or to perform Parkour to cross chasms to proceed. Near the end of the Zone, the player will cross electrical rails that will harm them unless they use Ivory Lightning or a Lightning Shield.

Zone 3

Zone 3 is set in the ruins above the canopies like Zone 2 from the Wii U/PC version. Throughout most of the Zone, the player must pass through pathways full of grind rails and presses that will try to crush the player, as well as parkour off of disappearing walls while avoiding Cluckers. Near the end of the Zone, the player must avoid being spotted by Zor's owl mech; however, getting seen is not an instant kill in this version, and will instead cause pillar traps to appear and try to crush Sonic.



Deep inside the darkest of woods, Silent Forest offers maze-like caverns, tumbling temples and crocodile-filled swamps to try and stop Sonic the Hedgehog in his path.
