Sonic Wave is a 1.9/2.0 Extreme Demon originally created and hacked by Cyclic in 1.9, and through another hacking scandal, drama, and a race to complete the level, it was finally verified and published by Sunix in 2.0. It is currently #24 on the Official Geometry Dash Demon List, above Generic Wave (#25) and below Gamma (#23).

History

Sonic Wave was originally created when Cyclic released a preview for a new Nine Circles level with a light blue color scheme back in mid-Update 1.9.[1] (This version is now considered as Old Sonic Wave.)The level was made to rival Poltergeist as the hardest Nine Circles level. However, the level wasn't rated, since Cyclic's verification video was publicly cut after he claimed to have verified it off-camera. Few players tried it, and those that did didn't make much progress. So in July, Cyclic decided to delete the unrated level and upload a buffed version with a darker color scheme. This update made it far harder than Bloodbath, and this time, Cyclic had a better verification video, so the level got rated for a very short time.

The community was split on whether this level was hacked or not, as the level was far too difficult for most players at the time. Most people accused Cyclic of hacking the level. Before 2.0, the level was replaced with a Back On Track remake, known as Cyclic On Track. In March of 2016, Cyclic confessed to hacking both versions of Sonic Wave. Shortly after, he admitted to hacking every other Demon he ever beat and quit Geometry Dash just a couple of days later. This resulted in Riot, Mefewe, and several other players attempting to become the first to beat it legitimately.

However, Riot was getting bored of Sonic Wave and asked ViPriN to make a special remake for him: Sonic Wave Infinity which made the level slightly darker and used 2.0 decoration and effects. While that was amidst, Mefewe had achieved a new best of 98% on his own buffed version of Sonic Wave,[2] which at the time was considered the worst ever fail in Geometry Dash. However, this devastating fail gained him more popularity and he later asked FunnyGame and Serponge to create another Sonic Wave remake: Alter Sonic Wave, which was later renamed Sonic Wave Rebirth, which made the level blindingly bright. Two other players, Surv and Sunix, were also practicing, both of them making good progress.

Afterward, Manix648 and LazerBlitz created the third Sonic Wave remake: Auditory Breaker.[3] With high-quality designs and incredibly realistic decorations, it was considered the best decorated Sonic Wave remake so far by many people, although it lost the categorization as a Nine Circles level. Manix648 chose Surv as the verifier of this level. However, Surv eventually turned down Auditory Breaker mainly due to him being chosen as the verifier of Yatagarasu. Riot also made further progress on Sonic Wave, eventually getting a record of 96%,[4] while Sunix achieved a record of 88%.[5] But soon after that, Sunix agreed to let Riot verify Sonic Wave first. However, six days after Sunix's 88% fail, Sunix finally verified Sonic Wave on November 25, 2016,[6] effectively breaking his promise with Riot.

Later, Sunix apologized to Riot and stated that he verifying the level was unintentional and he just wanted to see how far he could get during one of his streams after removing the start position. But that didn't stop other players like Aurorus from being angry with him. A few days later, Aurorus made a video claiming that Sunix used macros and auto-clicking hacks to verify Sonic Wave. Eventually, the accusations were proven false, and after Aurorus withdrew his claims, Sunix became recognized as the first official player to beat Sonic Wave, boosting his popularity significantly.

Gameplay

  • 0-8%: The level begins with a normal speed-cube section with tricky timings and a short block maze that requires the player to click late in order to avoid hitting the blue jump orb in the second platform.
  • 9-18%: This part is a double-speed ship sequence with several saw blades in which the player must avoid. There are also constant gravity and size changes with a few spikes between the sloped structures, which force the player to briefly straight fly.
  • 19-28%: This part turns the player into a short mini cube transition where the player must hit a gravity orb precisely after being bounced by several gravity pads. The player then transits into a slow ball section mainly composed of precise timings. The player later hits a normal-speed trigger and then a double-speed trigger, which makes it harder to time the gravity changes. The player then enters a dual mini ball passage reminiscent of Windy Landscape, in which the player must switch the gravity at the exact right moment to avoid the two spikes on either side. After clearing the spikes, the player must jump right after they enter the cube portal to avoid crashing to the ceiling.
  • 29-42%: This part composes of a very difficult wave part with incredibly tight spaces with several saw blades. The player later enters a mini-wave section with a series of saw-blades in which the player must avoid by going in a certain pattern. The player then switches back to a normal wave with more tight spaces and sawblades, then enters a dual mini-wave section where the player must clear invisible blocks extending from the ground and ceiling.
  • 43-56%: This part composes of a very difficult mini-wave section where the player must hold the space button to avoid the platform where the player must just barely avoid the spikes by barely letting go of the space bar. The player then enters a normal gravity portal with the exact same gameplay as before. This is followed by a fairly open mini-wave section, with one extremely tight space at the end. The player then continues to another wave section with a fake line trolling then enters a mini-wave section where the player must click extremely fast to avoid all the sawblades.
  • 56-65%: This part includes a fairly easy cube section where the player must spam to hit all the jump orbs and keep jumping while the speed gradually increases.
  • 65-77%: This part is composed of another wave section with very tight spaces and even more saw-blades, which later turns into a dual wave where the player must precisely go in a certain direction in order to avoid all the invisible blocks and the spikes above and below. Then, the player turns back into a normal wave through a gravity portal and continue to avoid the spikes, saw blades, and blocks.
  • 78-87%: This part begins with a half-speed mini-wave section where the player must spam to avoid the blocks below and the sawblades above. Then, the player has to go through a tight space between slopes. The player then transitions to a memory cube section that requires precise timing and clear memorization.
  • 88-100%: The last part is a triple-speed wave section with tight spaces, which changes to a mini-wave section, which includes tight spaces and sawblades as same as before. Then, the player switches back to a half-speed normal wave segment where the player must precisely verse through the small slopes; halfway through this, the speed changes to normal speed. The player then switches into a double and later triple-speed mini-wave where the player must spam over the words "GG Cyclic" made with blocks. At the end of the level, the player sees the words "Riot", "Dual", "Chief", and "Nocta", which represent Riot, Dual Kiki, ChiefFlurry, and Noctalium, respectively, all of whom are skilled players who Sunix dedicated this achievement to.

  • Riot crashed at 96%.
  • Rampage crashed at 94%.
  • Jake crashed at 93% while trying to rebeat the level for the video.
    • Previously, he had beaten the level without recording and his worst fail before completion was 79% twice.
  • ToshDeluxe crashed at 98%.

Trivia

  • The password for the level is 112516, which is the day Sunix verified and uploaded it.
  • The level contains 24,957 objects.
  • In late 2017, a logo animation featuring Cyclic and Sunix's cube icons (both the same but different colors) above text saying “Sonic Wave” was added.
    • There is a trigger at the beginning of the level that allows the player to turn this off.
  • This level has ½ space gaps in the wave (not ½ space between spikes).
  • Riot practiced Sonic Wave during 2016. He has a high score of 96%.
    • He said that Sonic Wave is significantly harder than Bloodbath, which is today a commonly known fact, due to the important gap between their places on the Official Demon list.
  • Riot has completed 39-100% on his (old) version of Sonic Wave, decorated by Viprin. His high score on the remake is 81%.
    • Mefewe has completed 64-100% on his own buffed version of Sonic Wave and has a high score of 98%. He also has his own remade version of Sonic Wave, which was decorated by FunnyGame and Serponge. His record on the remake was 55% before he moved on due to him being unable to beat it.
      • Mefewe's buffed version was verified by Sunix and uploaded on his account.
  • Cyclic verify-hacked the original Sonic Wave and speed hacked the second version, but he has beaten the 64-100% wave part of Sonic Wave Infinity legitimately.

Artificial Ascent was later moved to #2 and Sonic Wave stayed in #1 until January 13, when Yatagarasu came out. Yatagarasu was later moved to #3 when Erebus went above Sonic Wave and became #1. Digital Descent came up and knocked off Erebus from #1, but was later moved to #2 when Sonic Wave became #1. However, Plasma Pulse Finale knocked off Erebus off #2 and was then the second hardest demon in the game. Today, the demon sits at the 20th spot in the Top 100 Demons list.

  • Riot, Sunix, and Cyclic planned on making a sequel to this level called Cosmic Cyclone.
    • This remake was canceled until Zimnior12 obtained Riot’s permission to revive it.
  • Metalface221 verified and uploaded the old light blue version on December 18, 2016.
  • JakeM2436 has beaten this level 17 times.
  • Cyrillic has a copy of Sonic Wave on his account.
  • Muffy450's over 600,000 attempts spent on beating the level is the highest amount of attempts ever spent on beating a Geometry Dash level.

Sonic Wave Rebirth is a remake/rebirth of Sonic Wave decorated by Serponge and FunnyGame. It was set to be verified by Mefewe (who got 55% on the level), but has now been abandoned as he quit Geometry Dash. However, on January 1, 2018, Mefewe announced that AedenGD has been set to become the new verifier. Now, he currently has a record of 54% as of January 11, 2020.

Overview

This is another 2.0 remake of the original Sonic Wave Update. It is remade by Serponge and FunnyGame. It gives a much more vibe and feel of a Sonic Boom because of some decorations, and how bright it is compared to the 3 levels.

Gameplay

Like Sonic Wave Infinity, it is simply the original Sonic Wave Update, only with more 2.0 decorations, and slight changes and buffs. For example, All the wave parts are different than most 'Nine Circles' Style Levels. The level name (Sonic Wave) and the creators are shown before the first mini ship part starts. The ending text displays "Mefewe" instead of Cyclic. Afterward, the player is then teleported to a display with the creators' names, along with a triple spike. Jumping over it reveals the text "In Loving Memory of Rick and Grampa", thus hinting Mefewe dedicated this to his grandparents as his supposed biggest achievement.

Trivia

  • Serponge once accidentally uploaded the level on his account in late April, thus leaking it and causing the level's sudden death. Many players have reuploaded his copy, thus making it easy to find the original version.[1]
  • When Mefewe returned, he modified his copy as seen in the video below. AedenGD now owns the copy since purchasing the account.

Auditory Breaker is a 2.0/2.1 Extreme Demon collaboration created by LazerBlitz and Manix648, and verified by Gabs. It is a remake of Sonic Wave and the most visible remake, taking Auditory Breaker out of the Nine Circles Levels genre. Originally set to be a 5 people collab and to be verified by Surv, it was referred to as the best SW remake at the time. It was dead for two years due to being unfinished and because Surv picked up Yatagarasu. In October-November 2018, LaserBlitz decided to decorate 43-88% of the level and gave it to Gabs to verify. It was verified by him on January 7, 2019. It is currently #55 on the Official Geometry Dash Demon List, above Tempered Steel (#56) and below Demonicat (#54).

Trivia

  • The finished version by Laser keeps Manix's part unchanged except for an art removal. This is strange because Manix's wave uses a different effect style because of the supposed "5-player collab" rule and 40-43 is un-decorated.
  • Because Gab's will publish it on Laser's account, it would most likely be the first rated SW remake.
    • Meanwhile, he nerfed the level to a lower Top 10 difficulty and changed the "GG Penis" to a GG GABS with "By Manix/Lazer" text.
  • It just got rated recently, and this is good because RobTop said he will not rate Nine Circle levels anymore.
    • This is the first ever rated Sonic Wave remake.

Sonic Wave Deluxe is a 2.0 Sonic Wave remake by ToshDeluxe and Rustam. It remains unrated for now although it has been a while since it was uploaded.

Gameplay

This level itself is a nerfed red-colored reskin of Sonic Wave Infinity while having some slight buffs. It also uses elements from the original Sonic Wave during the second cube.

Despite the buffs, many players consider it an easier remake than the original Sonic Wave due to the amount of nerfs put into the level.

Notable Fails

  • ToshDeluxe crashed at 91% and 94%.

Trivia

  • Sonic Wave Deluxe is currently rated at the Hard difficulty due to many bots rating it Easy.

Sound Wave Destroyer is a 2.1 Sonic Wave Remake by Wolfen, verified and published by MeatiusGaming in 6204 attempts. Although it remains unrated, it is the first Sonic Wave remake that matches the original's difficulty to be verified legitimately even if it is said to be easier than the original.

Gameplay

The gameplay is a redecorated version of Sonic Wave, with space blue nighttime landscape and sound spectrum/wave theme and little to no buffs. The wave segments’ decoration, however, aren’t like a usual NC level, being just generic wave decorations while the BG flashes.

During the second cube, in the background, we see art of a nighttime landscape with a generic city, shooting stars (obviously inspired by Sonic Wave Infinity) and of course stars.

During the third cube, an arrow appears showing you where to go, making it easier.

At the end, the GG text appears 4 times, followed by the logo for Sound Wave Destroyer (the thinking emoji surrounded by Saturn's rings) with the name Wolfen, Meatius, and Cyclic appearing underneath.

Trivia

  • The music was originally “SummerSolsta7 - Sonic Blaster II (Fanmade) (Reupload)” which is a Sonic Blaster rework, but the song choice got a lot of hate from Meatius. Soon enough, he changed it back to the original song.
    • That song's ID is 752906.
  • Korean AF and Segami/Chara have made a superbuff for the level. Meatius is currently trying to work on it.
  • The remake's theme looks a lot like Auditory Breaker, causing fans to wonder if they are the same thing.
  • The second cube BG was designed by XevenFurious.
  • Hotball1 beat it right before the original Sonic Wave, calling it an Insane Demon.

The Invincible is a Sonic Wave remake by TheRealSneaky. While people are unsure if he is legit or not, this was verified a month before Sunix beat the original.

Gameplay

The level is basically the original Sonic Wave update with a black-and-white colour scheme (which is popular for rebirths of levels) inspired by SWI. Mefewe's buffs are also included.

Trivia

  • He has also made progress on Sonic Wave and Sonic Wave Rebirth while verifying the level as seen in the end of his verification video.

Generic Wave is a 2.1 Extreme Demon collaboration created by Pennutoh and Enlex and verified by Mullsy. As its name suggests, it is a generic remake of Sonic Wave by Cyclic, and therefore has nearly identical gameplay, albeit more visible and featuring numerous moving objects. It is currently #25 on the Official Geometry Dash Demon List, above Spectrum Cyclone (#26) and below Sonic Wave (#24).

Gameplay

The majority of the following gameplay description has been copied from the original level, Sonic Wave, due to having identical gameplay.

  • 0-8% (Enlex): The level begins with a normal speed cube section with tricky timings and a short block maze that requires the player to click at the exact right timing to avoid hitting the blue jump orb in the second platform.
  • 9-17% (Enlex): This part is a double speed ship sequence with several saw-blades in which the player must avoid. There are also constant gravity and size changes with a few spikes between the "slopes".
  • 18-28% (Enlex): This part turns the player into a short mini cube transition where the player must hit a gravity orb precisely after being bounced by several gravity pads. The player then transits into a slow ball section mainly composed of precise timings. The player later hits an x1 speed trigger and then a double speed trigger, which makes it harder to time the gravity changes. The player then enters a dual mini ball passage reminiscent of Windy Landscape, in which the player must switch the gravity at the exact right moment to avoid the two spikes on either side. After clearing the spikes, the player must jump right after they enter the cube portal to avoid crashing to the ceiling.
  • 29-41% (Pennutoh): This part composes of a very difficult wave part with incredibly tight spaces with several saw-blades. The player later enters a mini-wave section with a series of saw-blades in which the player must avoid by going in a certain pattern. The player then switches back to a normal wave with more tight spaces and saw-blades, then enters a dual mini-wave section where the player must clear a series of triangular obstacles.
  • 42-54% (Pennutoh): This part composes of a very difficult mini-wave section where the player must hold the space button to avoid the platform where the player must just barely avoid the spikes by barely letting go of the space bar. The player then enters a normal gravity portal with the exact same gameplay as before. This is followed by another tricky normal wave section, then a fairly open mini-wave section with one extremely tight space at the end. The player then continues to a spam-based dual wave section with a fake line trolling, then enters a mini-wave section where the player must click extremely fast and awkwardly to avoid all the saw-blades and structures.
  • 55-64% (Enlex): This part includes a tricky half-speed cube section with numerous orb timings. The part transitions into a tricky double-speed robot section, and finishes with a triple-speed cube section with yet more orb timings.
  • 65-80% (Pennutoh): This part is composed of another triple-speed wave section with very tight spaces, which slows to half-speed after two quick gravity changes. The player turns into a dual wave that has spaces that are not as tight as before. Then, the player turns back into a normal wave, though upside-down, and must continue to avoid the spikes, saw blades, and blocks. Halfway through, the player changes back into normal gravity. The level briefly turns to half-speed before going back to triple speed, and the player must maneuver through more tight spaces while occasionally changing gravity. The player enters a half-speed mini-wave section where the player must spam to avoid the blocks and sawblades above and below. Then, the player has to go through a tight space between slopes.
  • 81-86% (Enlex): The player then transitions to a very confusing normal and later triple-speed memory cube section that requires precise timing and clear memorization. A brief semi-auto section brings the player to the final part of the level.
  • 87-100% (Pennutoh): The last part is a triple-speed wave section with tight spaces, which changes to a mini-wave section, which includes tight spaces and sawblades as same as before. Then, the player switches back to a half-speed normal wave segment where the player must precisely verse through the slopes and spikes; halfway through this, the speed changes to normal speed. The player then switches gravity shortly before entering a double and later triple-speed mini-wave section where the player must spam above blocks that spell "GG Cernusco :)". After that, the end screen is shown and the level ends.

Sonic Wave Infinity is an unreleased 2.0/2.1 Extreme Demon mega-collaboration hosted by Zimnior12 and Riot and verified by Mycrafted. It is a super-buffed remake of Sonic Wave by Cyclic and Sunix, an Extreme Demon Nine Circles level. The level was originally decorated by Viprin to be an alternative version of Sonic Wave that Riot would verify.[1] An extension made by Wabbit and Aurorus was added to the level, but that was removed after a short time. After Riot was beaten to Sonic Wave's verification by Sunix in November 2016,[2] he asked Cyclic and Sunix in succession to try to verify the level. Both made some progress, including a 68% run by Sunix on his Bloodlust-difficulty version,[3] but neither managed to beat the level.

After that, the level did not receive much attention until April 2018, when Zimnior12 announced that he and the AP Team were now in charge of redecorating the level,[4] which had been buffed to a difficulty superior to that of Tartarus. Due to Sunix's inactivity, Riot passed the verification to Technical49 in February 2019,[5] but he dropped the level a few months later and verification was given to Mycrafted.[6] On December 20, Zimnior12 showcased the full level.

History

In June 2015, Korean player Cyclic released Sonic Wave, his new Nine Circles level. However, the level remained unrated due to a lack of a verification video, so he released a buff date in July with a proper video, and the level was rated for a short time. Players could not make much progress on the level, and many questioned Cyclic's legitimacy; this pressure from the community may have been the reason that led Cyclic to delete all his levels and quit the game.[1] After he did, many players like Riot and Mefewe made some progress on Sonic Wave. Cyclic later returned to the game but did not talk much about the level. In March 2016, he confessed to hacking to verify The Hell Zone, a collaboration that was a rebirth of a 1.2 level with the same name. Alongside that, he also admitted to hacking both versions of Sonic Wave, and a day later he told Riot that he had hacked every demon uploaded to his YouTube channel. He then proceeded to delete all his videos and seemed to quit the game for good.[1]

Meanwhile, Riot and Mefewe had been making good progress on Sonic Wave, and Riot had asked Viprin to make a redecorated and buffed version of the level that he would verify, called Sonic Wave Infinity, to increase the chances of the level getting rated by RobTop. After Mefewe got a devastating 98% fail on his own buffed version of the level, he asked FunnyGame and Serponge to do the same thing, and they made a level now known as Sonic Wave Rebirth. Since Riot seemed closer to verifying Sonic Wave Infinity than Mefewe was to verifying Sonic Wave Rebirth, they made a deal to increase the chances that both would be rated: Riot would only verify his level after Mefewe had verified his.[1] Mefewe spent a long amount of time trying to verify his level, but never beat it, and Riot waited during this time. Riot quickly lost motivation and quit the game in June, possibly earlier. In the meanwhile, Aurorus leaked a copy in August with some extras buffs to the version he previously played (Two versions circulated at this point, one being the original copy Auro leaked on Riot's account and one having filters to make the level look darker, although some versions of the later have the dark filters removed). Riot returned a few months later and announced that Wabbit and Aurorus would make an extension to the level. He said that he would try to beat the original version first, rather than risk dying at the extension in Sonic Wave Infinity and missing an opportunity to beat Sonic Wave.[1] Eventually, he was beaten to it by Sunix, who verified and uploaded Sonic Wave on November 25. Riot tried but could not verify Sonic Wave Infinity, and in January 2017, he announced that he was quitting the game again due to finger pains. He then asked Cyclic, who had returned and was now legitimate, to verify Sonic Wave Infinity. He made several good runs, but was also hampered by finger pains and could not complete it. Riot has since played the version he gave to Cyclic on stream regularly, most recently in his December 2019 return stream.

In March, Riot gave a copy of Sonic Wave Infinity to Krazyman50 seeing he upgraded to a 144hz monitor. Later that same month, Sunix uploaded a progress run of 25% on a super-buffed version of Sonic Wave Infinity.[7] He said that Riot had permitted him to verify the level and that he would try to preserve its difficulty, which he said was most likely higher than that of Bloodlust. Over the next six months, he progressed more and more on the level, finally achieving a record of 68% on September 9.[8] He did not make any more progress on the level and faded into inactivity in 2018 and early 2019. Not much was heard of Sonic Wave Infinity until April 10, 2018, when Zimnior12 uploaded a video showcasing his redecoration of the first cube part.[9] He explained that Riot had asked Zimnior12 and his creating team APTeam to redecorate the level after being impressed by their first project, The Apocalyptic Trilogy. Zimnior12 and his team began working on the level immediately, and he uploaded several videos throughout 2018 and 2019 showcasing the current progress. Meanwhile, since Sunix was inactive, Riot, who recently had his YouTube channel terminated, was searching for a new verifier. In February 2019, he asked Technical if he wanted to verify Sonic Wave Infinity. He accepted, and shortly afterward Riot uploaded a final gameplay revision of the level on his new channel, featuring gameplay even harder than the version Sunix played on and said that the level was not going to be nerfed at all.[10] In July, Technical abruptly dropped the level, citing the possibility of future stress during verification.[11] Riot quickly found a new verifier, Mycrafted, who practiced the level on and off during his streams while waiting for the decoration to be finished. On December 20, Zimnior12 showcased the full level on his channel,[12] and minor visual improvements being done by Zimnior12 and gameplay buffs to be done by Mycrafted and Riot are the final steps before the verification process starts.

Gameplay

  • 0% - 6% (Zimnior12) - The level begins with a simple normal-speed cube section with a few orb timings. There are also a few spikes protruding from parts of jump pads and platforms that force the player to time their orbs even more precisely. A short auto section transitions the player into the next part.
  • 7% - 15% (Salamander) - Next is a double-speed ship section that alternates many times in gravity and size. The player must awkwardly maneuver around slopes, spikes, and gears. Three times during the ship the speed becomes half-speed and the player must perform a brief mini-ship "straight-fly" between four spikes. The part ends with a semi-auto double-speed mini-cube section that only has a singular blue orb timing.
  • 16% - 23% (Playerwombat) - The player enters a half-speed ball section with a few orb timings and sloped structures. The speed then switches to normal speed, and the player becomes mini for four orb timings before returning to normal-size, where they must time their inputs to avoid spikes on the platforms. Similar gameplay follows after a switch to double-speed, after which there is a triple-speed mini-ball dual section where the player must avoid the spikes on the ground and ceiling with both icons, as at 50% in Windy Landscape. One jump as a triple-speed cube transitions the player into the next part as text saying "Sonic Wave Infinity" briefly enters the screen.
  • 24% - 29% (LuisLuigi and Creeper4) - At the drop, there is a triple-speed wave section with flashing and pulsing decoration, as is custom with most Nine Circles levels. This part features extremely tight spaces and two gravity portals in rapid succession to try to throw the player off. Most of the structures have spikes on the walls that make the spaces even tighter. Halfway through the part, the wave becomes mini and must go up and down to the beat of the song to avoid the gears.
  • 30% - 35% (LiLium11) - This part features blocks extending from the structures to buff the gameplay, as well as more sawblades and spikes on the walls. It starts with a triple-speed wave that requires plenty of awkward maneuvering, followed by a dual mini-wave with sloped structures and spikes on the ground and ceiling that the player must maneuver around.
  • 36% - 41% (Brittank88 and Reunomi) - Featuring brighter colors but fewer pulses, the next part begins with a triple-speed mini-wave section that requires the player to let go and immediately tap to avoid the spikes on the ground and ceiling. This must be done many times in quick succession, and the entire process is repeated after a gravity change. After this is a normal-size wave with more awkward maneuvering around octagonal blocks that take the place of sawblades, followed by a mini-wave section with a bit of spam at the beginning and two extremely tight spaces formed by extending spikes at the end.
  • 42% - 46% (IncaKola) - This part features a few spam sections as a triple-speed wave with a few gravity portals in the middle. After that is a mini-wave section with yet more spam, followed by a part that requires extremely awkward and precise movement around awkwardly-shaped structures with protruding spikes. The part ends with brief but tight controlled mini-wave spam around sawblades.
  • 47% - 54% (StarDust231) - This part is a cube section with a plethora of orb timings. The speed starts at half-speed but speeds up to double and triple-speed. In the original level, the orbs did not need to be timed very precisely and spamming usually allowed the player to pass this part. However, sawblades have been added that force the player to time some of the orbs.
  • 55% - 59% (Cynik) - The player enters a triple-speed wave section no only with extremely tight spaces as before, but with moving structures as well. The speed changes to half-speed a short way in, and the player must make three simple but precise inputs. Following that is a triple-speed dual wave section where the player must avoid sawblades in the center of the screen and spiked structures moving in from the ground and ceiling.
  • 60% - 63% (Nahuel) - Next is a triple-speed wave section that is much brighter than most of the other parts of the level. The player must again avoid structures and sawblades and must also pass through fake structures twice. After a few gravity portals, the speed changes to half-speed for a brief moment before the level returns to triple-speed with gameplay similar to the beginning of this part.
  • 64% (Pocketbuilder) - In a seamless transition from the previous part, the player, as a triple-speed wave, must spam between two triangular structures with protruding spikes, after which the wave becomes mini and the player must again go up and down to the beat of the song to avoid the sawblades, as in LuisLuigi's part.
  • 65% - 67% (Cybronaut) - As a half-speed mini-wave, the player must spam gradually up a slope, being careful to not crash into the sawblades above. After a quick dip into a tight space between two structures, the player must do the same thing, except they must spam slowly downwards. After a few tight corridors at half and normal-speeds, during which the structures are briefly covered up with gray slopes, there is a space between some spikes and a gear that must be spammed through in normal-speed. The part ends with some more tight mini-wave spaces.
  • 68% - 73% (ZeroSR) - This part is a memory cube section that starts at normal-speed but changes to triple-speed halfway through. The memory consists of a series of pillars with gaps, some of which are fake, and the player must remember whether to jump or fall to the next pillar. There are also blue jump pads in the pillars that change the gravity of the player and attempt to confuse them. After this, a short semi-auto half-speed cube part leads to the final gameplay part of the level.
  • 74% - 82% (Creeper4) - The player is presented with yet another extremely tight triple-speed wave section with more spiked structures, gears, and gravity portals that the player must awkwardly maneuver around. Partway through, the player must complete similar gameplay as the mini-wave. Following this is a half-speed normal-size wave section with a few gravity portals that require incredibly small wave movements to avoid spikes. After a similar bit at normal-speed, the player finishes with some double and triple-speed mini-wave spam over some gears and spiked structures.
  • 83% - 100% (Tribar and Nickalopogas) - The final part of the level is the end screen, which features an intricate background and flashy effects. It starts by crediting the hosts, Zimnior12 (shown as "Zim12") and Riot, and the verifier, Mycrafted. At the same time that their names are shown, their cube icon appears on the right side of the screen. Then the view pans upwards and the background fades to black as the names of the creators of the individual parts, the end screen (Tribar), the end screen background (Nickalopogas), and the original level (Cyclic) scroll by. Finally, the screen fades to black and the message "GG" appears in the bottom right corner of the screen, signalling the end of the level.

Trivia

  • Powerbomb beat an unnerfed version of the old Sonic Wave Infinity in July 2017.[13] Unfortunately, his record was not accepted as completion of Sonic Wave on the Official Demon list, since it is technically not the same level.
