How do I beat the boss on the Techno Base world?
Games Guru: This is a really tough level due to some spectacular jumps you have to make. There are no real bosses in Techno Base. But there are various Badniks throughout the level. It’s your job to avoid them, including the hovering silver Badnik at the end of the level. Avoid it by jumping on the left square platform, which will spring you up and away from the Badnik.
Where are the five special rings on the leaf forest level? I can’t find them!
Games Guru: As I understand it, there are seven rings in this stage. Here are some hints to lead you to the first four:
- Ring 1—Instead of going through the loop, jump on top and spin dash up the rail.
- Ring 2—You will find a trampoline at the base of a slope. Jump on it, then use a special team ability to get higher, and you will find the second ring.
- Ring 3—There is a spiral on a ledge. Explore the ledge for ring 3.
- Ring 4—Go to the end of the spiral and turn right. You will find a giant loop. The next ring is on the top of that loop.
On the Sky Canyon world, I can’t figure out how to beat the boss (Dr. Eggman).
Games Guru: First you must destroy the cannon, which sounds easy but isn’t. To do this, you must charge at the cannon the moment the hand stops attacking. Jump attack the cannon and back off. Repeat this until the cannon is gone, and make sure to get out of the way after attacking the cannon so you don’t get slapped.
Next, avoid the hand and go for Dr. Eggman. The hand is still going to go after you. Use a hit-and-run strategy. Slip in, hit Eggman, slip out. It will take eight hits to defeat this very challenging boss.
