Zone description : Located in South Island, Spring Yard is an amusement park in the middle of an inhabited urban city. This park is quite dangerous and consists almost entirely of metal structures, so it was probably built by Dr. Robotnik. The park is overflowing with robots and spiky orbs that threaten to destroy any intruder. In addition to the obvious threats, the park is full of inconvenient springs deliberately placed to interfere with Sonic’s progress. With the right skill, however, they can be used to your advantage.

One unfortunate day, the evil genius Dr. Ivo Robotnik decided to build his evil empire with the might of an army of robots. The Doctor goes to South Island to find six Chaos Emeralds and use them to build the ultimate weapon – the Death Egg, a space station that would become the capital of the evil empire. Once on the island, Robotnik used his army of robots to capture animals who live on the island and put them inside the robots, charging his machines with the energy of the animals.
Soon, the supersonic hero, Sonic the Hedgehog, arrives on the island and begins rescuing the animals by destroying the robots and searching for the Chaos Emeralds. The third location Sonic visits is Spring Yard, where the blue hero continues his adventure. It is here, with proper skill, that Sonic can find the last of the six Emeralds. At the end of the third act of the zone, Sonic encounters Robotnik in battle with the doctor’s next modification of the Egg Mobile, the Egg Stinger.
