Labyrinth Zone is a network of underwater tunnels and ancient ruins. The major danger in this level is not badniks or spikes, but the underwater sections.

Sonic is not a proficient swimmer, meaning if he stays underwater long enough, he will drown. It is often considered to be the hardest level in the game. A countdown will appear if Sonic stays underwater for too long. You must grab an air bubble for Sonic to breathe before the countdown ends. If the countdown ends before you grab an air bubble, Sonic will drown, losing a life.

[edit] Boss Battle

The boss battle in this zone is not so much a battle but a gauntlet run. Sonic must chase Dr. Robotnik through an ascending passage, with no air bubbles, and with various spikes and badniks. Reaching the top is sufficient to complete the stage, however, landing eight hits on Robotnik will also end this zone. Becaue of all the traps along the way, and the speed at which Dr. Robotnik moves, it is easier to simply reach the end of the run, rather than land 8 hits.

Labyrinth Zone (8-bit version)
The 8-bit version of the Labyrinth Zone is largely similar to the 16-bit version. The boss however takes place entirely underwater, rather than chasing Dr. Robotnik through a flooding upward climb through a tunnel. The levels in general are shorter than the 16-bit counterparts. The Chaos Emerald is located in the 2nd act of the zone.

[edit] Boss Fight

Dr. Robotnik returns with his modified Egg Mobile which can safely travel underwater. Only this time with the addition of homing missiles.

[edit] Badniks

[edit] Sonic Drift

Labyrinth Zone in Sonic Drift
Labyrinth Zone, along with all other zones from Sonic the Hedgehog (16-Bit) appear as race tracks in Sonic Drift. Whilst the race tracks themselves are largely sparse, the background in the distance and the map above the track screen shows more clearly which zone the track is based on.
