Here's the only known magazine article that mentions the title Dust Hill Zone:

Surprised? Maybe you expected pictures from the desert and a description of "Ashura" on the side. :P

If you can prove that Dust Hill is something else, post your proof*.




*Mangled interviews don't count.

OMG!!! 111 IT'S TEH DU$T H1LL!!! *shot*

seriously, IMO, this proves that dust hill is not a desert zone and that the desert zone is still unkown.

can you find descriptopns of other lost zones in that magazine?

The article has a description of [possibly] every other stage in this prototype, but the only lost stage in there is Hidden Palace.

At that point (75% complete, according to EGM), the known levels were:

-Green Hill Zone
-Chemical Plant Zone
-Neo Green Hill Zone
-Casino Night Zone
-Hill Top Zone
-Dust Hill Zone
-Oil Ocean Zone
-Metropolis Zone
-Hidden Palace Zone
-Sky Chase Zone

...And the magazine doesn't show more stages. There's no pics of Hidden Palace as they "don't want to spoil it since it's hidden".

It's not clear wether it's supposed to come after Metropolis or anywhere else. Also, there might have been more levels but they just didn't want to show the last ones.

Kool. Well, I'm not sure about the interview now, but oh well. It's cool.

If the average house features some dust in those places that aren't cleaned properly for a couple of weeks, imagine how much dust will a cavern have. :P

Yeah, but still....."Dust Hill Zone"? Where in the cave is there a hill? Why couldn't they have just called it something like "Dusty Cavern Zone"? :blink:

Why Quartz Quadrant, Flying Battery and Chrome Gadget? Because the designer thought it was a good name at the moment.

Then somebody else might have noticed what you say and told him to think of a different title, which was Mystic Cave.

That magazine scan can be a hoax. I've seen better scans.

I agree to some extent:

Enter a dark and menacing system and find you need to get out alive!

This phrase always struck me as odd. Either this is a hoax, or the editor of the magazine has very bad English skills.

Quarts Quadrant - quartz formations in the level,

Flying Battery - "Battery" is An emplacement for one or more pieces of artillery, or a set of guns or other heavy artillery, as on a warship. (Doctionary.com),

Chrome Gadget - level full of gadgets and traps, with a "chrome" style.

I think the title also has to do with the way the level looks too, IMHO
