    Game Over
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Should you lose in battle, you will be given a chance to retry in exchange
    for a specific amount of rings. So be sure to set some rings aside for
    those particularly difficult boss fights later on in the game.
    
    POW Moves
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    POW moves are special attacks that are carried out by successfully inputting
    the commands displayed onscreen. If done correctly, the move does maximum
    damage, otherwise the move will miss completely, wasting your turn. Some
    POW moves involve more than one character to perform, wherein all 
    participating characters must have the designated amount of PP. 
    
    Team POW moves often involve more complex command inputs, but does much 
    more damage compared to solo POW Moves.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    When you regain control after some brief tutorials, tap the arrow icon at
    the bottom left corner of the touch screen. Explore the options in there
    and read through the documentations to familiarize yourself with the rules
    of this game. When you've seen enough, collect all the rings you can get.
    
    Take EGG #1 near the loop. These eggs will hatch into Chaos, which in turn
    grant special abilities and enhancements to the character they are bonded
    to. Next, open the treasure northwest from the man for a HEALTH SEED.
    
    Side Mission: The Tired Old Woodsman
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Talk to the old man and agree to help him. Approach the pile of wood nearby
    then tap the action button to start chopping. Go back to the old man when
    you're done. You will be rewarded with a POW CANDY and 50 XP.
    ____________________________________
    
    Continue to the dock, step on the switch to retrieve the raft, and ride it
    across the lake. You will then engage in your very first battle -- against
    an Enraged Armadillo. There will be a brief battle tutorial before the
    fight, so don't worry. Defeat that enemy to proceed. Head south to trigger
    a short story event. Amy joins the party afterwards.
    
    When you regain control, turn back a bit to grab the rings and EGG #2. Move
    along south until you encounter a sentry drone. Catch it and destroy it.
    Onwards to a chest with PRUNE JUICE / HEALTH SEED. When you reach a fork,
    go east and explore a bit just to open up the map.
    
    You will see another man there, but you won't be able to accomplish his
    request right now since you must have 4 characters for that. Anyway, hop up
    the steps to the top of the elevated platform in the middle for a chest
    with HEALTH SEED / POW CANDY. Next, climb the southwest platform. Dash along
    the slide to reach EGG #3 at the upper platform.
    
    Go around the top then down to the right side to reach the southmost 
    elevated area. Climb up there and step on the spring to get to the top. Open
    the treasure chest for a BOXING GLOVES. Put that on now. Jump back down and
    make your way to the bridge south of the area (marked with a star).
    
    Save your game. Collect the nearby treasure containing HEALTH SEED / POW 
    CANDY and approach the bridge for a boss fight.

    Boss: Marauder Scout
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    This battle shouldn't be that much of problem if your characters are at
    level 2 or 3. You're most probably not used to doing Power Moves yet, so
    just stick to using regular attacks. Or you can also practice on how to do 
    the Power Moves properly if you like, but I don't advise this. Use those 
    Heath Seeds to heal if you're low on HP.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    After the battle, cross the bridge towards Central City.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Central City                                                         [02a-2]
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Start off by picking up all the rings you can find -- you should have 24 of
    them once you finish your hunt. Head to the northeast corner of the area,
    some ways to the right of Tails' Workshop. EGG #1 is hidden somewhere there
    next to a fire hydrant. Enter the structure marked with a star on the map.
    
    Talk to Tails inside. Go on and prolong the conversation by avoiding the
    main topic. It's always good to learn about other things. Save your game
    and leave the building when you're done chatting. Defeat 2 Sentry Drones
    and 1 Swat Bot. Go back inside the workshop to recover and save again.
    
    Remember the cat (Rogue) who refuses to let you through earlier? Well, go
    talk to her now. She will then lead you to the GUN HQ. Chapter complete.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Some ways to the right of the GUN HQ is a guy, who is standing next to a
    fire hydrant. Talk to him for a puzzle. You can also ask for hints but the 
    man will ask for 30 rings in exchange -- don't bother listening to what he 
    has to say, as you can easily solve this puzzle on your own.
    
    The Pipe Puzzle
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Start by having two characters step on the two red buttons, which will turn
    green. Switch to a third character, climb the white planks, and examine the
    red thingie there. This should turn the crane towards the pipe outside. Now
    run back down and head over to that said pipe. Hook it to the crane and go
    operate the red thingie on the upper level again, to move the pipe to its
    proper position. Get a POW CANDY and 150 XP for solving the puzzle.
    _______________
    
    Switch control over to Sonic and dash into the newly fixed pipes, and down
    the ramp. You'll eventually end up on the rooftops. You can have Tails fly
    across the gaps on either side, but fly left first. Collect all the rings
    you can find, as well as EGG #2 for this stage. You will also find a
    treasure chest which lets you take either a REFRESHER or a HEALTH SEED.
    
    Hop back down to the ground and make your way back to the pipes. Dash
    through it one more time with Sonic, and this time have Tails fly across
    the right gap on the rooftops. Again, collect all the rings as well as
    EGG #3. Make your way back to the ground after that.
    
    There is a GUN soldier near the GUN HQ entrance. Talk to him and agree 
    to help. Note that you are only looking for one target.
    
    Side Mission: Mechanical Muggers
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Search for a downward ramp (with directional arrows on it) near the center
    of the city. Dash down and you should emerge atop a building at the bottom
    left corner of the city. Head north around the back of a house. The robot
    will spot you. Defeat 2 SWAT Bots and 2 Sentry Drones. The GUN Soldier 
    will reward you with a HEALTH LEAF and 75 XP.
    ________________________________
    
    Proceed further into the alley to find EGG #4. There is also a treasure
    chest back on top of the building. That one lets you pick between a HEALTH
    SEED / POW CANDY / CLOVER JUICE. Make your way back to the center of the
    city. Now you should see a bag icon on the map. Go there to find a shop,
    where you can exchange your rings for items and equipments.
    
    Head northeast from the shop, and talk to the man next to a car. He will
    ask you to look for the Queen Wasp. Agree to help as always.
    
    Side Mission: Queen of the Swarm
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go to where the pipes are and dash through it. At the rooftops, fly west
    and navigate towards the roof of the shop. The queen you're looking for
    should be waiting there. Go back to the petitioner for an ANTIDOTE & 50 XP.
    ________________________________
    
    Back to the main quest. Notice that there are 2 stars left on the map. That
    is where you need to go. Head for the east one first and down the man hole.
    Move forward a bit and 2 SWAT Bots will attack you. Defeat them to get first
    of four communicators. Open the chest for 2 HEALTH SEEDS / POW CANDY.
    
    For the second base, dash through the pipes again to reach the rooftops. Fly
    west. Make your way to the roof of the shop then hop onto the house with a
    long brown roof. From there, just go through several doors until you spot a
    spring to the left. Hop off there and proceed to the hideout.
    
    Once again, go forward, kill 2 SWAT Bots for the second communicator. The
    chest contains the same items as the one in the first base did. Go back out
    to the city and take the exit just beyond the pipes to Green Hill Zone. You
    may want to visit Tails' Workshop to recover and save first.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    You should spot the next star on the map right away, but before that there
    are other things for you to do here. First, head west along the bottom strip
    of land to find EGG #4 for this stage. After that, go right around to the
    top. Talk to the man there, and you should be able to clear his puzzle now.
    
    The Bridge Puzzle
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Have Sonic and Amy step on the first two switches to lower parts of the
    bridge. Then fly across the gap with Tails and Rouge. Have them step on the
    remaining buttons to complete the bridge.
    _________________
    
    Fly up the "starred island" and enter the next base. You should know the
    drill now. Collect the third communicator and your item of choice from the
    treasure chest. Climb the staircase then take EGG #5. Go back outside.
    
    The last hideout is located on a small island southeast of the area. So go
    there then fly towards the right island. Take EGG #6 and fly north. Enter
    the base and beat the 2 SWAT Bots for the final communicator. Take your
    desired loot from the chest. Your next destination is the Mystic Ruins,
    but you need to find a way to get there first.
    
    Make your way back to Central City then go south towards the star on the
    map. The GUN Soldier still refuses to let you pass, so stop by Tails'
    Workshop.  Talk to everyone then leave. Check the Tornado to proceed.
    
    At the world map, fly south towards the ruins.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Start off by collecting all the rings you can find, until the party gets
    blocked by a cloud of gas. Big the Cat joins your group after a bit of
    dialogue. Pick your desired party; Sonic and Big are mandatory, so you can
    take two more characters of your choice.
    
    Now, switch control over to Big and ram through the gas cloud northwest.
    Enter the room at the end. The left chest has SPEEDY SNEAKERS / ECONOMIZER /
    LUCKY GLOVES, while the right one has HEALTH LEAF / POW GUM / ANTIDOTE. Take
    EGG #1 for this stage. Go back outside and plow through the southeast gas
    cloud. At the other side, hop northeast to higher ground for EGG #2.
    
    Turn around down the steps and talk to the GUN Soldier for a puzzle.
    
    The Air Vents Puzzle
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Start by having two characters step on the lower-left and upper-right
    buttons. Next, switch to a third character and have him take the power cell
    from the exposed tube. Now, step on the upper-left and lower-right buttons
    to release the other tube. Send whoever has the power cell to examine the
    open tube and put his load there. Release the buttons to send the tube back 
    down. That solves this puzzle.
    ______________________
    
    Go around the path northeast and plow through the gas cloud. Defeat the
    Colossal Worm at the end of the path; fly west onto the small island then
    up onto a broken steel beam for EGG #3. Turn back through the gas, flying
    east to another island then north to the next one to find EGG #4.
    
    Next, proceed to the lower portion of the area, and plow through the gas
    sotheast then dash up the ramp. Hop off at the other side for EGG #5. Now,
    head to the center of the upper area. Force your way through the gas cloud.
    Fly to the higher platform then hop up the next one to find EGG #6.
    
    Return to where the the fans are. Step on the large block in the middle and
    fly to the upper level. Collect the rings along with EGG #7. Go inside the
    structure afterwards. Make your way down until you reach the floor populated
    by some Marauder Scouts. The rooms at the center and to the left all have
    eggs inside, but you need Knuckles for that, so come back later.
    
    Enter the right door. Knuckles will be in here. Take note of another egg to
    be retrieved later. The chapter ends after a bit of dialogue.

    crates and scale high walls. Check the alley near the man hole by the green
    house. Smash the red crates and take EGG #5 behind it.
    
    There is a round blue thing southeast of the map. Have Knuckles climb the
    wall of that building. Smash the crates at the top and take EGG #6. There

    Side Mission: The Forgetful SWAT Bot
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    All you have to do here is to remind the robot of its purpose. Once you've
    done that, defeat it to get the 1st of 6 EGGMAN DEVICE. The item will open
    up another mission < Strange Eggman Devices >, which you must complete in

    Now, check out the northwest portion of the ruins to find a robotic animal
    roaming around. The tracker should pick up a signal here as well. Defeat the
    Robodillos. Proceed to the star on the map. Bash up the Robodillos to claim 
    EGGMAN DEVICE #3. Fly the Tornado to Green Hill Zone now.

    Have Knuckles climb the southwest mountain, and smash the crates at the
    lower dead end to find EGG #7. Next, scale up the gray tower to the south
    east. There is a chest with SPOOKY CHARM / IRON TONIC / CRAZY BEANS on top.
    
    Ride the raft back to the northern island, then fly west onto the smaller
    one and hop south for EGG #8. Now, get to the top of the platform just west
    of the airfield; fly east, and have Knuckles climb the rest of the way up.
    Smash the crates and take EGG #9. Move along and you'll eventually reach the
    top of the upper center island. Fly east near the bottom. Collect EGG #10.
    
    Next, head for the white structure south of the area. Have Knuckles climb

    Talk to the salesman wandering around near the entrance to this stage. Force
    him to hand over the shopkeeper's Prized Stapler. Take the item back to its
    owner in Central City. You will get EGGMAN DEVICE #4.
    
    Side Mission: A Young Boy in Trouble
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Now, cross the central bridge north towards a cave. You will get a signal
    here, and a kid will ask for help. Save your game. Enter the cave and defeat
    both Giant Scorpions. Claim EGGMAN DEVICE #5. Escort the boy home to Central 
    City. Get a HEALTH LEAF from his dad.
    
    This clears the < Strange Eggman Devices > mission, and Tails puts together

    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Back to Green Hill Zone. Go to the upper central island. Talk to Cream there
    Search for Cheese around Green Hill Zone. I'm not sure if the Chao's
    location is random, bit I found Cheese on top of the gray tower southeast
    of the area. Go back to Cream and let her tag along. She will join you.
    
    Side Mission: Norton is Missing!
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Search around the entire Green Hill Zone to find a frog named Norton.
    Remember that Big will mistake any frog as his missing friend. So keep
    looking until you find the right one. You'll receive a chest with a
    REVIVAL RING / ANTIDOTE and some XP.
    
    Side Mission: Stop the Signal
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Find a ramp on "Cream's island" that Sonic can use to reach the other
    island to the right. Talk to the scientist. You need to turn off three
    generators (the locations will be marked with stars on the map). Some
    Raptor Hawks will attack you each time you examine a generator.
    
    Once all the generators are off, the animals will stop attacking, but
    the robots will become a lot more aggressive. Go back to Dr. Madden to
    claim your CURE ALL SPRAY / REVIVAL RING treasure and 50 XP.
    _____________________________
    
    Once you've done everything, climb the southwest mountain again, and
    have Knuckles scale his way up to the peak. Tails will use the Pattern
    Generator to disable the force field blocking the entrance to the base.
    
    Defeat 3 Laser Sentinels and go inside. Some SWAT Bot MK.IIs will appear.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Boss: SWAT Bot MK. II x3
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    These robots' attacks are powerful, so you might want to focus on boosting
    your party's defenses before coming here. Also, if you have chaos that grant
    lightning elemental attack, then by all means equip them.
    
    These enemies can self-repair when KOed. The best way to deal with this is
    to wear all 3 down until they have a few HPs left, then take them all out
    in one round. Their Crusher attack is a real pain, since it inflicts a
    status that reduce your attack damage to 1, and takes away plenty of HP too.
     
    So either hope that the move misses, or successfully tap all the rings on
    screen to reduce damage from it. Tails' Flash Bomb ability works really well
    on them though, so use that when you can.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    There is an item/equipment shop near the airfield. Try to open up the map as
    much as possible. You will run into Shadow somewhere along the way, and he
    will pick a fight with you as expected. 
    
    For the first round, you get to battle him with your whole party, but he 
    will run away as soon as you beat him. Go after him while making sure not to
    crash into any dark orb, as these can deal a lot of damage. You will fight
    him with Sonic alone when you catch up to him.
    
    After the battle, persuade him to join your party. Ask him about Omega
    during the dialogue. This unlocks the side mission < Search for Omega >
    later on in Metropolis. When you regain control, hop onto the drum and onto
    the green roof. From there, head to the north end and hop onto the rusty
    roof. Fly northeast onto the next house, then fly to the top to find EGG #1.
    
    Head back to the green rooftop and navigate eastward, until you land on top
    of the water tank for EGG #2. 
    
    Side Mission: Deliver the Warning
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Return to the entrance and speak to the man standing next to the blue drum
    for a side mission.The factory is located some ways north across the bridge.
    Talk to the foreman, then go back to the petitioner. You will be rewarded
    with a SPEED BAR and 500 XP. 
    __________________________________
    
    Next, dash up the ramp near the green roof house, then go around the back of
    the large elevated platform towards the front. Step on the spring to claim
    EGG #3 at the bottom of the platform. Look for another spring somewhere in
    the area to go even higher, then fly east to a foothold with EGG #4.
    
    Side Mission: Timmy in Trouble
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Make your way back to the ground, and talk to the old man by the house
    slightly west. There is a well some ways north of that house. Go down there,
    pick up EGG #5 and talk to Timothy. Take him back to his father. Your
    reward is some CRAZY BEANS and 75 XP.
    ______________________________
    
    You can find EGG #6 behind the bushes west of the old man's house. Go back
    to the well and dash up the nearby ramp. You'll land on the mountains to
    the north. Fly west from there then use the springs to reach the southern
    platform. Pick up EGG #7. Back to the gound once again.
    
    Side Mission: Man in the Booth
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Cross the only bridge in this area. The man in the nearby booth will ask
    you to bring him some reading material. So go to the Station Square shop
    and buy the "Blue Ridge Times" for one ring. Take that back to the man
    in the booth. You will receive a PRUNE JUICE and 25 XP.
    ______________________________
    
    Now, climb to up the factory and drop down the east side. You should find
    EGG #8 somewhere in that area. Go back to the factory and fly left. Have
    Sonic dash around two sets of loops to the east platform. Take EGG #9.
    
    Dash up the nearby ramp then use the spring to get atop the pillar. Grab
    EGG #10. There is a man standing in the middle of the upper area.
    
    Side Mission: GUN Escort
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    All you have to do here is to accompany the GUN Official back to the Blue
    Ridge airfield. Your reward is IMMUNITY BOOSTER / ANTIDOTE and 100 XP.
    ________________________
    
    After that, make your to the upper portion of the area, and head east to
    the last darkened section of the map. You will run into Shade.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Boss: Procurator Shade & Nocturnus Velite x2
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    All the enemies absorb HP with every attack, equipping a chao with Regen All
    is a good way to counter this. Quickly get rid of Shade using Power Moves,
    or focus all your regular attacks on her until she falls. But take note that
    Shade can counter your attacks, so be prepared to heal when needed.
    
    The Velites can use Stasis Grenade, which deals damage and inflicts Sleep
    on the target. Fortunately, the status is often short-lived.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    After the battle head to the tunnel entrance at the northwest corner of the
    area. Talk to the man nearby to start solving the puzzle. Examine the
    monitor and it will display a pattern. Now you have to step on the switches
    that correspond to the patterns shown on the monitor.
    
    You have to solve three of these, and the patterns become more complicated
    each time. You may want to copy the patterns on paper as a guide, in case
    you're having a bit of trouble recognizing the shapes. The puzzle set
    resets every time you step on the wrong switch.
    
    The door opens when you clear the 3rd pattern. Chapter complete.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    When you regain control, split your characters up into two separate teams,
    with four members each. I will refer to these teams as Team Sonic and Team
    Eggman from here on. Also, this room will be your new stronghold, so come
    back here whenever you need to replenish HP and PP.
    
    As Team Sonic, head northeast to find EGG #1 at the end of the path. Then
    turn a bit and head north up the stairs, to get above ground. Controls will
    switch to Team Eggman now. Just go through the door to the south. In the
    next room, go left for chest with RUBBER GLOVES / HEALTH SEED / CURE ALL 
    SPRAY. The device you're looking is just below. Get WEAPON PART.
    
    Back to Team Sonic. Climb up the red staircase near the south exit. You
    will find EGG #2 up there. Come back down. Knuckles can climb up the nearby 
    wall. At the top, go lower left for chest with SWIFT BOOTS / RING OF LIFE / 
    GRAPPLE CLAWS. Head north, fly up to the crate, and go along until you reach 
    EGG #3, then hop back down. Next, hop of the east side of the wall to claim 
    EGG #4. Go all the way east along the middle path, and scale up the wall at
    the end to enter the airbase. There is a red wall at the lower level that 
    Knuckles can climb up of as well. You will get EGG #5 at the top.  
    
    Control once again shifts to your other party. There is a chest at the 
    corner of the tunnel patrolled by the huge robot. The treasure chest 
    contains ROCK SALT / HEALTH ROOT / POW GUM. Just east from there is the exit
    leading above ground. Use the nearby spring to get atop the wall and smash 
    through the crates. Fly (level 3) east to the next wall to find EGG #6. Hop 
    off to the lower level for EGG #7 next to the incline. Now climb up the that 
    incline grab the WEAPON PART from the chest. Next, fly up the crates next to 
    the top underground exit. The chest up there contains BLUNT CLAWS / POW GUM.
    
    Just south your current location is a control room of sorts. Talk to the old
    man there to begin solving.
    
    The Escalator Puzzle
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Examine the panel at the center first. It will display a combination of 
    colors, that you must match to activate the escalator. Look around the area 
    and you should see three other switches positioned on red, blue and yellow 
    panels. These panels are your guide as to what color each switch represents.
    Now just press those switch in the same order shown by the main monitor.
    
    There are three sets of combinations you must clear. Doing so will raise the
    esclator. You will be rewarded with a POW CANDY and 750 XP.
    _____________________
    
    Ride the escalator up and fly west. Keep flying, relying on the fans to take
    you further. until you end up at the top of the south underground exit. Claim 
    EGG #8 up there. Also, if you land on the top of the structure with a 
    staircase to the south, drop off the sides for EGG #9 and a chest with RUSTY
    HYDRAULICS / HEALTH LEAF. Naviagate to the top-left side of the airbase 
    for a chest with SPEEDY SNEAKERS in it. You will find EGG #10 next to 
    Eggman's lab, which is marked with a star on the map.
    
    Enter the lab. After some dialogue, the controls will shift to Team Sonic.
    At the air skiff, beat the captain of the Maurauders at the top of the area.
    Then approach the group of enemies at the bottom of the stairs.
    
    Back with Team Eggman again. Ride the escalator then fly west at the top.
    On the next platform fly west one more time. 
    
    Side Mission: Search for Omega
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go along a bit and head down the stairs. You will find E123 Omega there.
    Defeat the 4 Laser Drones. Shadow and Rouge then persuades Omega to tag
    along with the crew. You have to go back to the underground stronghold
    in order to include Omega in your party.
    ______________________________
    
    Get on the escalator once more. Fly west, south, hop down, fly south.
    You will now be where the cannon is. Save your game then climb upstairs.
    Defeat the Guardian Pawn and the two Laser Drone Mk. IIs. Use Tails' Flash
    Bang and Eggman's Bombardment power moves.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Controls will once again shift to Team Sonic. Start by flying to the small
    island at the southeast corner to claim EGG #1. Go back to the starting
    point and hop off to the side. The chest has SPARKLY GLOVES / CLOVER JUICE /
    HEALTH LEAF. Continue forward, climb the wall, use the spring for EGG #2.
    
    Now, make your way to the lower-right portion of the area, then hop along
    east to find EGG #3. Turn around and climb up the stairs of the northern
    structure. The chest contains 2 POW DRINKS / 1 HEALTH ROOT. Head for the
    central path and go north then turn east. Smash the crates, use the spring
    to reach a chest with SWIFT BOOTS / SPEED BAR / RING OF LIFE.
    
    Hop down, climb the rock to the left to claim EGG #4. Make your way to the
    ramp in the middle of the area, save your game then climb up the stairs.
    Defeat 4 Nocturnal Velites. The game will switch to Team Eggman now.
    
    Just go to the underground stronghold for some dialogue. Back with Sonic,
    defeat 4 Nocturne Hestatus. Tails and company will arrive, then you'll be

    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    All the enemies can leech HP with every attack. Also, take note that Ix is
    very well-defended against physical attacks, so your best bet here is to 
    use magic-based power moves. Omega's abilities are very effective, 
    particularly the beam attack. You can either get rid of the Hestatuses first
    or put them to sleep with Knuckles' Quake Punch. Another good thing about
    Omega is that his regular attacks hit all targets. You can use that to wear
    down Ix's lackeys faster.
    
    Ix has various "anomaly" moves that can inflict various status effects; one
    of which can even revive his dead allies. Keep your PPs up and hit Ix with
    your best available magic-type power move. Heal your characters with Health 
    Seeds or Health Leaves when low on HP.

    Kron Colony                                                          [02g-1]
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    You'll battle against some Kron Warriors as soon as you get off the ship.
    These enemies have a lot of HP and very resistant to physical attacks. Your
    best choice here is to use Shade's Echidna Rush and Omega's Beam Cannon.
    Equip PP boosting armors and chaos on your characters. Refreshers and
    Economizers will help a lot in PP management.
    
    That said, go back inside the Cyclone and talk to Rouge for a mission.
    
    Side Mission: Secret Operations
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    What you need to do here is to collect "Nocturne Tech" items for Rouge. You
    can get them by achieving "A" ranks in battles vs. Nocturne Princeps. So
    keep beating the said enemies and deliver the techs to Rouge in the Cyclone
    
    Give her about 10 Nocturne Techs, and she'll make you promise not to give
    her any more. Agree with her for 2 HEALTH ROOTS and 1000 XP.  
    _______________________________
    
    Head east from the starting point, smash the crates and proceed up the
    incline for EGG #1. Go back to the Cyclone and proceed south. Defeat another
    pair of Kron Warriors. Continue further down then hop into the hole find
    EGG #2. Enter the southwest cave. Smash the crates inside. Take EGG #3. Go
    through the north exit then the east one.
    
    You will emerge at the upper portion of the western mountains. Take the
    north path to EGG #4. Leave the spring alone for now. Then go along to the
    end of the southeast path for EGG #5. Now, head for the northern cave.
    There is a Kron that sells good equipments inside. Talk to the Frag.
    
    Outside, make your way back to the ground and proceed to the southeast
    corner of the area for EGG #6. Enter the nearby cave. Inside, talk to Nestor
    the Wise to unlock another side mission.
    
    Side Mission: Relics of the Past
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    In this mission you have to collect items called "Nocturne Relic" -- one 
    from each colony, and bring them to Nestor. He will give you a reward for
    every relic you bring to him. There are 4 Nocturne Relics in total. Nestor
    rewards you with a MED EMITTER and 8000 XP.
    ________________________________
    
    Make your way back to the upper levels of the western mountains, take the
    north path, and use the springs to reach a higher area. Talk to the Kron
    to start solving the puzzle.
    
    The Conveyor Belt Puzzle
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    For this puzzle, you have to find the correct combination of symbols, by
    pressing the switches to raise the crushers, to get across the conveyor
    belt to the other side. Blue (=), Yellow (|), Red (+) is the combination
    you're looking for. Have Sonic dash across afterwards.
    ________________________
    
    At the other side, pick up EGG #7 nearby. Just follow that path to the
    next mission objective. You should find EGG #8 behind a set of crates along
    the way. Shut off the generator inside the cave. Back outside and enter the
    cave to Frag's left. Inside, go around left for chest with NOCTURNE RELIC.
    
    Take that back to Nestor for a POW DRINK and 75 XP. Head to the opposite
    side and grab the first CHAOS EMERALD. Make your way back to the Cyclone.
    Check yellow arrow to open the world map. Fly to N'rrgal Colony.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    A jelly creature will start feeding on your ship when you get off. Defeat a
    pair of N'rggal Warriors. These things have poor defense, but can fully
    replenish their health through a single HP leech. So you have to kill them
    as quickly as you can manage. A perfect combo from Echidna Rush can 
    eliminate one of these enemies in a single go. 
    
    Start by heading right then hop off at the end for EGG #1. Go back to the
    Cyclone and hop off north for chest with NOCTURNE RELIC. From there, head
    west, plow through the barrier for EGG #2. Make your way back to the 
    starting point one more time. Proceed left then plow through the electric
    barrier. Go east first to find EGG #3 behind some crates. Turn back west and 
    use the springs to get upper level ahead and grab EGG #4. Enter nearby cave.
    
    At the top, talk to the N'rrgal Queen. You can find EGG #5 behind an 
    electric barrier just below the ramp at east corner of the area. Make your 
    way back to the Cyclone. Your ship will then crash land on the next colony.

    Zoah Colony                                                          [02h-2]
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Defeat a pair of Zoah Brutes. Again Shade's Echidna Rush and Omega's Beam
    Cannon are the your moves of choice against them. Go around to the right
    side then hop off to the bottom level for EGG #1. Enter the nearby room to
    your right. The chest has CURSED GLOVES / PRUNE JUICE / REFRESHER WAVE.
    
    Side Mission: The Night Stalker
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go down along the right path and talk to someone named Haniman.
    Defeat the his holographic Dragodon. You will obtain a chest with PRECURSOR 
    TABLET / POW DRINK. and 3000 XP.
    _______________________________
    
    Go back up and talk to the robot by the door. Ask about the pirates. This
    unlocks the side mission < Pirates of the Twilight Cage > 
    
    Pick the tablet as your reward for the "Night Stalker" mission. This unlocks
    another side quest < The Argus Event > Continue further south and enter the 
    house a bit left. The chest has IMMUNITY BOOSTER / ANTIDOTE / REFRESHER WAVE.
    Leave then head towards the house at the center of the area. Defeat the
    Zoah Brute. Grab chest for NOCTURNE RELIC.
    
    Climb the west incline then dash up the ramp to reach platform with EGG #2.
    Hop back down and head for the southeast corner of the area. Use the door to
    access a higher area with EGG #3. Turn back and jump to the building
    slightly southwest. Dash up the ramp. You'll eventually reach the rooftop
    with EGG #4 on it. Make your way back to the ground.
    
    Talk to the guard near the shop and enter the house. The chest in there has
    VOXAI TELEPORTER / IMMUNITY BOOSTER / MED EMITTER. Return to the sothmost
    building and approach the entrance of the base. Tell the guard that you want
    to petition for a challenge, then mention applying for citizenship.
    
    You'll be taken to a new area. There are 2 chests here. One has REFRESHER
    WAVE / IRON TONIC / ROCK SALT. The other has MED EMITTER / CRAZY BEANS /
    CLOVER JUICE. Save your game. You will be fughting 4 consecutive battles
    here, so make the best possible preparations. 
    
    The first two rounds should be easy enough. The third fight will be against
    2 Zoah Brutes and Commander Syrax. The commander's power move is quite
    complicated. Just try to input as many commands as you can correctly to
    reduce damage. Fortunately he has less HP compared to his support crew.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    Boss: General Raxos
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    This is a one-on-one battle between Sonic and Raxos. Naturally, Sonic is
    faster so you'll get more turns than your opponent. Keep a decent supply of
    Health Leaves and Health Roots handy, and heal when your HP goes below 110.
    Try to lessen damage from Super Nova, by accumulating as many correct 
    command inputs as you can. Counter with your own sets of Power Moves.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    The Passcode Puzzle
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Talk to the smaller robot outside the base. A set of sample code will be
    displayed. Try to figure out the mathematical equation used to obtain the
    fourth digit. Then step on the red switch. Use the same equation to come
    up with the missing digit. Select another character to examine the panel.
    Tap the action command to stop the counter once it shows the right digit.
    ____________________
    
    Go back inside the base. Collect the chest with IRON TONIC / CURE ALL SPRAY.
    The other chest has CURSED GLOVES / PSYCHIC WATER. Now that you have the
    second emerald, go back to the Cyclone and fly to the N'rrgal Colony.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    The queen will give you the third Chaos Emerald. Talk to the slime
    positioned below the two ramps north of town for a side mission.
    
    Side Mission: Poisoned N'rrgal Supply
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Hop off onto the pool of slime to the left, and enter the cave at the end.
    Defeat the Swat Bot. Pick up another PRECURSOR TABLET. The treasure chest in
    here contains OILY HYDRAULICS / ICE RING / MED EMITTER. Return to the
    petitioner to claim your rewards -- POW DRINK / CRAZY BEANS and 3000 XP.
    
    Side Mission: Pirates of the Twilight Cage
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Talk to the merchant in the shop at Kron Colony, and ask him about the
    pirates. Now fly to N'rrgal and speak with one of the slimes north of the
    area (on the white areas). It will give you a package to deliver to the
    merchant in Kron. Board the Cyclone; the pirates will then try to take
    your cargo. Defeat 4 Nocturne Praetorians. Get another PRECURSOR TABLET.
    
    Now deliver the package to the merchant then return to the slime in
    N'rrgal. Rewards are: REVIVAL RING / REFRESHER WAVE / POW DRINK & 2500 XP.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    The citizens in this colony are not hostile... yet. So take advantage of the
    temporary peace and collect all the loot you can find. From the starting
    point, go into the house a little southwest. The chest inside has CURE ALL
    SPRAY / CRAZY BEANS / RING OF LIFE. Next, head east from the Cyclone and
    teleport into the crystal for EGG #1. Teleport out to the other side and
    enter the northeast house to claim EGG #2.
    
    You will find EGG #3 some ways south from your ship. Examine the teleporter
    under the ramp to the northest. You will end up on the southeast platform.
    Use the teleporter there to reach the west island. Go south and teleport
    into the crystal for EGG #4. After that, head north into the house to find
    another NOCTURNE RELIC. Proceed down to the next house. The treasure chest
    inside has a ZOAH SHIELD / HEALTH SEED / PSYCHIC WATER.
    
    Next, check one of the teleporters to the northeast, to reach the northwest
    platform for a story event. Return to the middle island afterwards. 
    Navigate through the teleporters until you reach Thebe's house on the east
    island. Go inside and talk to Thebes. Defeat the enemies. Leave the house.
    
    The citizens of this island will now attack you, so be ready. Use the
    teleporter at the southwest part of the area, to reach the platform with
    EGG #5 on it. Now dash up the incline to the northeast to reach the
    northwest platform. Some bad guys will meet you there.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    Boss: Thelxe, Voxai Conspirators x2
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    Again regular attacks from these guys can inflict Poison. Use Immunity
    Boosters to counter this, or remove the status with Antidotes when it gets
    bad. Also, having at least two characters equip "Regen-All" chaos helps a
    lot in nullifying damage from Poison.
    
    Sonic should attack or use Power Moves if you have PPs to spare, while
    both Shade and Knuckles team up for Echidna Rush. These creatures are weak
    to Fire so have Omega use Flamethrower on them. If Cream is in your party,
    then she should use Heal on your party if needed. 
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    You will receive the GREAT EMERALD. Examine the large purple thing to reach
    the next colony. You may want to head back to your ship and recover first.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Start off by going west then teleport through the barrier. Hop down at the
    ledge to find EGG #1. Next, make your way to the top-left corner. From
    there, proceed southward and phase through one of the crystals for EGG #2.
    The chest nearby contains a NOCTURNE RELIC. You can find EGG #3 behind
    some crates further south.
    
    Turn around, go right through the archway, and dash to the other side.
    There, phase through one of the obstacles to find EGG #4 at the bottom.
    After that, enter the small passageway west to find a chest with GRAPPLE
    CLAWS / MED EMITTER / REFRESHER WAVE. Stop by the other ledge, and phase
    through the obstacles west for EGG #5. Continue further left, and use the
    spring within the barrier to reach the platform with EGG #6. 
    
    Go back to the east portion of the area. Talk to Thebes' friend. He has
    another puzzle waiting for you.
    
    The Facewall Puzzle
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Examine the top panel first, then send three character to step on all the
    switches some distance away. One of the colored panels on the floor will
    flash. Quickly change to the character standing on that panel, and tap
    the action command. Do this for a total of 8 seconds. A new color will be 
    shown every second. If a color flashes twice then don't do anything.    
    ____________________
    
    After that, go back north and climb up the wall. Head west at the top
    then hop down onto the center platform for a boss fight.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Boss: Overminds Leucosia, Ligaia, Riadne
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    This battle is very similar to the one you had against Thelxe earlier. Have
    at least two characters equip "Regen-All" chaos. Counter Posion with
    Antidotes or Immunity Boosters. Sonic should attack or use Axe Kick when
    possible; Omega should use Flamethrower. Beam Cannon works well too, but it
    only hits one target at a time. 
    
    Knuckles and Shade should team up for Echidna Rush. A perfect combo from 
    that move can take away as much as 75% of the target's total HP, so it is a 
    good idea to equip PP-boosting chaos on both Knuckles and Shade.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    You will receive two more CHAOS EMERALDS. Go to your ship at Voxai Colony
    Beta. This chapter ends after a bit of dialogue.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Fly your ship to the Kron Colony, and proceed to Foreman Krag's chamber to
    the northwest (where the shop is). If you have any more side quests
    remaining, then finish them now, as you won't be able to leave once you
    land on Nocturne. Go back to the Cyclone when you're ready.
    
    Side Mission: The Argus Event
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Take the Precursor Tablets you have picked up from clearing other side 
    missions, to Nestor and have him decipher the writings on the stone.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Split your characters into two parties. Now, with Team Sonic, go forward;
    Charyb then appers and locks the door. When you regain control, enter the
    struture up ahead. Hop onto the platform further in for a chest with MED
    EMITTER / CURE ALL SPRAY / REFRESHER WAVE. Press the switch afterwards.
    Go back outside and go through the west door.
    
    Controls will very briefly switch to Team Knuckles. Go east up the incline
    and you will be stopped by some laser turrets. Back with Sonic, use the
    spring and exit through the nearby door. In the next area, fly to the 
    bottom platform to claim EGG #1. 
    
    After that, fly back to the starting point and into the west room. Get to
    the upper level and head east up the stairs. In the next screen, go west
    first to find EGG #2. Take the east staircase back outside. Go along the
    east path down to EGG #3. Turn around then take the other path to the 
    switch and press it to deactivate the laser turrets.
    
    As Team Knuckles, fly all the way east into the room at the end. The chest
    inside has a MED EMITTER / CURE ALL SPRAY / REFRESHER WAVE. Take the stairs
    back outside. Battle against Gizoid Centurions. You can't win no matter 
    what, so just let your party take a beating until the fight stops.
    
    You will be controlling Sonic once more. Turn around and enter the nearby
    lab. Check the two inactive Gizoids in this room, then go downstairs. There
    is another Gizoid to the left. Hop down; go around east to the exit for one
    more Gizoid. Now go back to the second floor of the lab, then examine one
    of the robots there. Tails should be able to take down the shielding.
    
    Back with Knuckles. You get to fight the Centurions again, but now the odds
    should shift in your favor. So pick them apart to move on. Continue forward
    up the springs. Head west at the top for EGG #4. Turn back. Climb the wall.
    Scylla will be waiting for you there. Control shifts to Team Sonic.
    
    Go back outside. Proceed to where the switch for the laser turret was, and
    dash up the nearby ramp. Take EGG #5. Descend the blue steps; dash around
    the ramp. Save your game and enter the room marked with a star on the map.
    
    You will now be in Charyb's lair, which promptly gets flooded. You will not
    be able to use POW Moves underwater, and your HPs will gradually deplete as
    well. Use the air pockets to keep you health up as much as possible. When
    you regain control, go straight ahead for EGG #6. Turn back and go east. 
    Ignore the split path going straight to the end for EGG #7.
    
    Back track to the fork and head north then east to the next area. Heal up,
    save your game, and approach Charyb for a boss fight. Again, there is no
    way to win while the lair is still flooded. Just hold out until the fight
    stops. Control shifts to Team Knuckles. You will fight Scylla right away.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Boss: Prefect Scylla
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Scylla regular attacks can weaken your characters, while her Might Slash 
    Power Move can inflict Sleep, but fortunately the said attack is quite easy 
    to avoid as the onscreen commands are simple. Have Big use Feel No Pain, to 
    draw Scylla's attention to himself, while your other party members use their 
    best Power Moves on Scylla -- Echidna Rush does wonders against this boss, 
    so use that as much as possible.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    You will receive the sixth CHAOS EMERALD. Enter nearby room. You will find
    EGG #8 inside. The chest contains MED EMITTER / CURE ALL SPRAY / REFRESHER 
    WAVE. Press the switch. Back with Sonic for another boss fight.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Boss: Prefect Charyb
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    This battle is pretty much the same as the one with Scylla. She also has
    Might Slash which can Sleep your characters. Use your best attacks and POW
    moves. Heal when needed. Try to avoid Mighty Slash as much as possible. 
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Retreive the seventh CHAOS EMERALD. Back with Team Knuckles. Leave the room
    and hop up onto the roof. From there, head east to find EGG #9 on a ledge
    to the far right. Turn back to the main path, go north then climb the wall.
    Knuckles and company will be transported to Ix's chamber. 
    
    You will be controlling Team Sonic now. Make your way back to the previous
    area. There, head for the center of the room. Ride elevator out of the
    sewer. In the next area, ignore the door to Ix's chamber for now. Instead,
    go right and step on springs to reach a platform with EGG #10.
    
    Enter Ix's chamber. Team Knuckles gets to fight Ix after some cut-scenes.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    Boss: Imperator Ix Power Throne, Power Pylon x2
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    Equip attack boost chaos on both Knuckles and Shade, while your other two
    party members carry regenerative chaos. The Pylons can restore large amounts
    of HP to Ix. So destroy those as soon as you can. When Ix revives them, take
    them out again. Fortunately, the Pylons are never revived to full HP.
    
    Have Shade use Echidna Rush on Ix, while the others deal with the Pylons.
    Ix's Doom Orb inflicts Sleep and Sluggish, and may somtimes cause instant
    death on a character. Try your best to avoid that move. Feel free to use
    Antidotes to cure status effects. Heal with Med Emitters.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    You get to fight Ix again, and this time with Team Sonic.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    Boss: Imperator Ix Power Throne, Power Pylon x2
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    Ix only has half of his first round HP this time (800 HP). The Power Pylons
    don't heal Ix every round either, so you can ignore them now, and focus all
    your attacks on Ix. As always, hit him with your best power moves, 
    preferably the non-elemental ones. Doom Orb still does the same thing --
    Sleep + Sluggish, sometimes KO. Try to make that move miss if possible.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    Knuckles then leaves the party to retrieve the Master Emerald. Reorganize
    your battle party to keep Ix and company busy.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Boss: Imperator Ix, Gizoid Guardian x2
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Your opponents will start the fight by running away. They won't actually
    disappear, but the chase sequence does complicate things somewhat. Try to
    avoid slamming into any of the orbs until you catch up to Ix's group.
    
    The Gizoid Guardians are not really a threat, mainly because their attacks
    miss all the time. Get rid of Ix first. Weaken his Dark Anomaly attack as
    much as you can. Once Ix is gone, sweep up the Gizoid Guardians.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Now, you get to fight Ix for the last time with Super Sonic.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Final Boss: Imperator Ix
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    This battle will test how much you've mastered the execution of onscreen
    commands. Input the commands correctly to avoid Ix's Overload, and maximize

    You can listen to Tails go through the staff roll, or you can skip the
    whole thing. You can then play the game again in new game + mode, where
    you keep everything you've gathered in your previous playthrough.

    Chaos grant parameter enhancements or special abilities to the characters
    they form bonds with. The eggs will start shaking when they are about to
    hatch, and you will hear some sort of crushing sound once the chao comes
    out. The chao that you get is totally random. Though you can keep reloading
    your save until you get the one that you like.
    
    To make new chaos available for bonding, you must first view them in the
    Chao Garden, after which they will be transferred to your list of chaos in
    the inventory screen. The list below is far from complete; it's just a
    compilation of what I managed to get thus far.

    Character Power Moves                                                  [03b]
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Power moves are learned by expending the points earned through level up.
    The option to learn new moves automatically appears each time a character
    gains a level. Alternatively, you can also access the power move screen by
    opening the status window in the main menu. Then tap the "POW Moves" option
    in the character sub-window.
    
    To execute a team attack, all the characters involved must have the amount
    of PP required by the move. Otherwise, the ability will not be accessible
    even if the current character has excess PP.

    Aside from stat boosts, equipments also affect the armor and damage
    proficiencies of a character. Increase in armor (armor +) will raise a party 
    member's ability to resist damage received form enemies, whlle increase in
    damage (dmg +) strengthens a character's attack power. Also, take note that
    "Atk" and "Def" pertain to accuracy and evasion.
