Windy Hill: Zone 3
Red Star Ring 1: After travelling through a tunnel wherein
you'll be forced to outmaneuver a few rolling boulders, you'll be launched into
another tunnel. Upon landing, turn back, hang from the ledge at the tunnel's
entrance, drop, and double jump to reach the hidden area below. You'll find a
few blocks of crystal to be smashed. Inside one of them is the first Red Star
Red Star Ring 2: Upon making it out of the second
boulder-filled tunnel, you'll see a group of five bats, followed by the second
Red Star Ring on your right as you're passing under the spiky half-cylinder.
Red Star Ring 3: About two-thirds of the way through the
level, you'll come to a checkpoint followed by five boosts in a row.
Immediately after landing, you'll find the third Red Star Ring encased in a
block of crystal.
Red Star Ring 4: This one is extremely tricky. At several
points throughout the level, you'll have the opportunity to collect a laser
power-up, which you'll need to use.. After hitting the checkpoint immediately
preceding the third Red Star Ring, ignore the boosts and instead keep to the
right. You'll see three enemies and a few rings lining the wall behind them.
Look to the right and you'll see a corridor with no floor. Jump over to it and
press R to initiate the power-up and launch Sonic to the platform on the far
side. Continue down the hallway to find the fourth Red Star Ring encased in
Red Star Ring 5: In the final boulder tunnel, you'll see a
bell. Grab it and follow it until it reveals the final Red Star Ring.
