It’s one the quickest levels in Sonic the Hedgehog. You can easily beat it in under two minutes without breaking a sweat. Just don’t mistake Star Light Zone as a pushover.
The fifth zone in the original Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis — which looks like it takes place in outer space — is both fast paced and potentially treacherous with vast drop-offs where Sonic can easily fall off the level. Only a few enemies are even present but it is best to avoid them altogether since you cannot actually kill them.
Star Light Zone is notorious among Sonic fans for the number of alternate paths that you can take before reaching the end of the level. There are as many as five different alternate points at certain spots.
It’s fair to say that Star Light Zone is relatively easy compared to the other later levels but it is still a fun ride. Just watch your step.
