When they meet up with Pine, the alarm goes off and they all find themselves in a trap, the level begins with a segment where Hoorg and the others must copy the rhythm robots moves to escape the first trap, then there's the second half of the trap, where they are surronded by Dark Rhythm Robots in a dark room and must stick together and shoot at the robots so they can make it out. Hoorg covers the lower half of the screen.
