1: The first challenge map in Sonic Frontiers is the simplest one. Stand on all three ancient switches to complete this first challenge.

2: The second challenge requires using the Cyloop to create a loop around the three lanterns. Make a Cyloop one at a time to extinguish their flame. Once all three have been done, this challenge is completed.

3: This challenge location requires the homing attack. Jump in the air and homing attack each of the five switches without hitting the ground.

4: This challenge will come up several more times in Sonic Frontiers. You must step on all the light blue squares and deactivate them without jumping. This one is relatively straightforward; create a loop to shut all these colored squares off.

5: Use the homing attack on each of the obelisks at the challenge site. Once they are all at their peak, jump to the platform to find an ancient switch. Stand on it to complete this challenge.

6: Activate the switch to start a timer. Follow the string of coins as you race toward the endpoint. Stand on the finish line plate to complete the challenge. Use Sonic’s boost ability to reach the end in time easily.

20: This one can be a particularly nasty puzzle sequence. Follow the arrows from the starting grey block near the bottom right of the image. You’re under no time pressure, so take each step slowly but surely, and this task is over.

23: This is an hourglass switch, but instead of racing, you must head to the red and white platforms against the cliff. Create Cyloops around each energy field before the clock runs out.

24: Sonic has to engage in some Fall cleaning for this mission. Cyloop around the pile of leaves to finish this task.
