Once done, the player will enter a fight with the enemy. Some may even damaged you from range before starting the fight. Traps are present during this case, and may even damage you. 

Battle System

The player can build up MP as they dodged enemy attacks. To dodge, they can either jump with (W), or cancel some attacks with the (LMB). Enemies will attack relentless until they overheat. Once overheat, it is the player's turn. They can either attack, heal, boost, or even run during this phase. Each selection cost MP during the process. Their turn will be over once the enemy completely cooled down. They can skip this phase if needed, doing so will reward more MP. The battle is over if either side has no more health. 

Stages

  • The Mindscape Zone in the Alpha -1.01
These stages are the ones available for public information.
  • Mindscape Zone - After a day of hardwork, Sonic can enter the Mindscape Zone, once he fall asleep. It acts differently from an ordinary dreamworld, where it connects to his memories and reality. It contains a series of sublevels in which it can show him the path to his recollection. However, they also contained otherworldly robots that will stop in his way. Each level can only be unlocked by completing a chapter of the main story.
  • Mangrove Forest - An overgrown forest with thick and populated vegetation. Nature rests along the peaceful side of the world of machinery. Some establishments were found working their way on liberating most of the area, transforming it into a research facility. Use the environment in getting to your goal faster and take advantage of the hazardous terrains to your clanking enemies.
  • Ironbrim City - The capital city of advanced engineering. This entire place runs down to simple pistons to complex automatons. The entire island is run with infinite hydro energy, thanks to the large axle rims that keeps the island floating from water. The security tightens in all angles and you better keep your guard down, otherwise; it's no mercy for you.
  • Frigid Wasteland - A deserted iceland from the unknown. It was once an ocean many years ago, until time has passed to halt the blue calm waves. Abandoned oil rigs and wrecked ships were found within the icy territory. After many findings by researchers, a Chaos Shard was buried down the depths of an old station near the oil rigs. Ivo was one of the researchers. Can you race against him in the arctic battleground?
  • Dustorm Valley - The raging zone of the mechanical driveway. This valley is accompanied by a multitude of rails and iron bullet trains, using them for transport and traveling around the center part of the continent. Additionally, sandstorms occur at a daily basis. There are mine shafts that are completely hidden due to the buried sand from the storm. However, people began using these conditions in establishing an underground facility for storing weapons and machines. Dr. Robotnik located the facility and he starts a transport of an old military robot. However, due to trafficking, multiple blockades were made in the railway. Endure the heat and battle through the deadly storm.
  • Gigatomic Factory - The automated district of Ironbrim City is known to have the most abundant power source. From its source, this district is in its first line of the flow before anywhere else. However, it is slightly polluted with its dark atmosphere of smoke and gas. It is also the home of the city's recycling center, alongside a large junkyard which is entirely run by a mechanical custodian. Any protocols and orders will be executed with no delay, so prepare for the worse and don't judge its unearthly appearance. 
  • Aqua Plant - The gigafactory of water treatment. Ever wonder how water is supplied on an island with no springs or lakes? The Aqua Plant takes that job in processing saltwater into your everyday drink. Water treatment is a delicate process but be weary when a single concoction can lead to a disastrous result. Take note that floods and other areas may occur due to careless leakage from robots. Also note: DO NOT DROWN. 
  • Mausoleum Server - A robotic graveyard of the dead. Not in a direct approach, the entire network is abandoned a long time ago, where advanced engineering is at its first development. For some reason, it has an equal level of superiority on today's technology, despite its early installment. Rusted robots and malfunctioned machinery are now the only ones who live in this place. Find what you're looking for and don't stay too long in the dark.
  • Dynamo Metropolis - An empty city of the unknown. It is discovered by Dr. Gerald Robotnik during one of his expeditions. Fortunately, it can be seen in the magnetic map of any ship. Unfortunately, due to rough waves and heavy continuous storms, it is hard to tell its routes and precise coordinates when traveling near its aquatic territory. Because of this, it is forgotten by many people. The island is barren and quiet, there is nothing that can considered itself to be unique from anywhere else. Many years later, it is now the base of Ivo Robotnik after his exile. It became a defensive metropolis, where machines live to perform their daily functions to survive everyday from the harsh weather conditions. Be prepare from your ultimatum, as this is not just any rough zone to face.
