Sonic 2 hi-res image brings the second game’s final boss battle to life
High-res images from the great Sonic the Hedgehog 2 game spot show the massive robot Death Egg, who was the final boss of the second Sonic video game.

The third shows a visibly agitated Sonic preparing for battle, while the fourth sees Knuckles on a makeshift snowboard as fire engulfs the air behind him.

This last segment is exceptionally difficult in the original version of the game, as the player must defeat both bosses without receiving a single ring, which means taking a single hit will result in the loss of a life – or a “game over” if the player has no lives to spare. That said, some reissues of Sonic 2 have updated the Death Egg Zone to give players a few rings between the two boss fights.
