The Aurora Isles is a region. Regions categorize levels with similar characteristics that have been incorporated into the Clockworks.

Description

From atop mysterious floating islands, sun bleached ruins crumble under a false sky. Though the green grass and cool air feels real enough, the ever present grinding of the machine just below the surface is a constant reminder of this world's mechanical skeleton. — Gate Icons

Characteristics

Each level map is fixed.

When accessible via the arcade, levels are always found in a rotation of 4 with each other in the depth they occupy. Rotation time seems to always be 2 minutes or less. Compared to other levels, they are a rare sight in arcade gates.

Levels are populated by multitudes of Wolvers and Jelly Cubes. A few Chromalisks, Lichens, and Lumbers appear in certain levels, and Gun Puppies only show up in The Low Gardens.

The background is a day sky dome with sun bulbs.

Similar grassy terrain can be seen in the Jigsaw Valley, Lichenous Lair, Treasure Vault, and Wolver Den. The Aurora Isles seem to be associated with the obsolete Starlight Cradle region, sharing similar terrain and soundtrack.
