Egg Gauntlet Zone

EggGauntlet.png

Egg Gauntlet Zone data remains in the final game but can only be accessed through hacking. It was the first attempt at a Boss Attack level that had some original artwork such as mechanical palm trees and flashing lights. It was to be a full Zone that acted as a testing facility for some of the bosses inventions rather than just have a level with bosses back to back. The act was nearly completed and needed just a few graphical changes to replace missing, unpolished, and placeholder graphics. Sonic Team did not approve of changing the location, colors, or graphical style so the level was scrapped and the Boss Attack level that was used in the final game was created.[2] A map of the level can be seen here.
