Hidden Palace Zone (HPZ) refers to two levels in Sonic games, one being an unfinished (and mostly removed) level in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, the other being a level in Sonic and Knuckles.
Hidden Palace Zone in Sonic and Knuckles is a transitional level between Lava Reef Zone and Sky Sanctuary Zone.

Also, it should be noted that all these people had thought that her desert level was called Dust Hill because of some unfounded rumors that had been spread at the time, and since they continously asked her about it, it's quite possible that she just ended up assuming it was the correct title.
Is Mystic Cave Zone in any way related to the desert zone, because in the beta be have has Mystic Cave Zone play when Dust Hill Zone is selected.
Was there ever any fire sprite in the desert zone because there’s been a fire sprite found hidden in a Sonic 2 ROM image.

If the remaining Hidden Palace data is still on the cart, just not where the game expects it to be, I may be able to work out some Game Genie code combination that makes the HPZ fully playable to the degree in which it was playable when furhter work on it was abandoned.
The music is the same as Metropolis Zone, as Wood Zone's was in the beta, and the palette is very similar to Wood Zone's (the flashy yellow in the sky would have been used to animate saw blades and conveyor belts).
Hidden Palace does not play as it did in the beta, sadly.

I won’t be giving a full walkthrough on getting through them since you won’t enjoy this game as much if you know where the next obstacle is. For the boss battles, I will list how many hits it takes to defeat, where it is located and one or two strategies on how to defeat it.
The only differences for Sonic and Tails are that there is no third final boss in the Launch Base Zone, there are more Giant Rings in the Mushroom Hill Zone and it is easier to collect the seven Chaos Emeralds in the Special Stages than it was in the original Sonic 3.

I said before that the reason that Hidden Palace got cut from the game, just before release (no one told me) was that they had run out of room.
I know that Hidden Palace was one of the first pieces of art I did for Sonci 2.
I was very happy with the basic 'wallpaper' pattern and colors I had worked out for Hidden Palace so I used them as a basis for the Spinball level.

However, that stage (which is titled Hidden Palace Zone) didn't appear in the final game.
No one knows exactly why the developers dropped the stages (probably to make Sonic 2 shorter since the game is quite long) but a group of dedicated Sonic fans found the missing stages and restored them in their version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
It surely matches that of the Sega development team and the lost stages fit in smoothly with the original ones (although the first hidden stage, Wood Zone, doesn't appear until the sixth level).

I, however, don't want to accept that as the truth because there is no proof that I'm aware of to say that that was the intended music for Hidden Palace Zone.
I've read many things from these e-mails and links to related sites in them saying that Sonic 2 has been hacked into to get to the Hidden Palace Zone, and that Song #10 is played as the BGM for that zone.
My thoughts are that it was either supposed to be used as the time travel sound that plays when Sonic is zoomin' between time zones or it was intended to be used as a noise for one of Eggman's machines; possibly one of the zone bosses.
