    I: Introduction
    
    Since I saw that a lot of people are asking the same question on the board, I
    thought about making this faq for the Central City stage of the game Shadow the
    Hedgehog.

    If you need clarification on how to get to one of the bomb or know of a faster
    way to get to a bomb, please don't be shy to email me.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    III: Informations about Central City's missions
    
    Central City is the fourth stage of the dark path, it can be reach by either
    choosing all of the dark missions from the beginning or by doing the first
    mission neutral and the following 2 in the dark path. Once you are in Central
    City, you have the choice to do the dark or hero mission. The hero mission
    consist of helping Knuckles destroy 20 small bombs that the black Aliens have
    set in the city. If you complete the hero mission in Central City, you will go
    to Air Fleet. The dark mission consist of helping Black Doom setting off the 5
    giant bombs that are in the city. If you complete the dark mission you will go
    to The Ark.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    IV: Location of the giant bombs
    
    #1: To get to the first giant bomb, when you first start the stage, go where
    Doom's eye is. There should be two black and red crates (the one on the right
    contain an alien gun if you need it). Right after, there is one alien that you
    should just ignore if you are doing the dark mission, but behind him there is a
    pack of dynamite. Use the gun you found in the crate to make it explode which
    should reveal a bumper. Use that bumper to get to the top of the building. Use
    the weight in front of you to get to checkpoint 1 and you should see the first
    giant bomb right in front of you. To set if off, just fire at it. (make sure
    you are not too close to it when it explode or you'll get hurt)
    
    #2: To get to the second giant bomb, go past the giant bomb you just set off
    and you should see a metal path that connects two building. Cross it and you
    will meet Knuckles who will ask you to help him destroy the 20 small bombs.
    Ignore Knuckles, jump on top of the weight and get on top of the other
    building. Now you will need to use the triangle jump to get to the other side,
    where the second bomb is. To make sure you reach it, start your triangle jump
    on the left wall. The bomb will be right there with an alien, just ignore the
    alien and shoot the bomb.
    
    #3: This bomb will destroy a part of the wall right beside it. That will reveal
    a few rings and a rocket. Do not take the rocket but jump on the road below.
    You should see a blue light floating. Just touch it to awaken Hero Shadow. Use
    Chaos Control right away to get to the 3rd checkpoint. From there do a 180 and
    you should see checkpoint #3, turn left at the checkpoint and get on the step
    on your right, just before the convertible, and up another step on your right
    again, the 3rd bomb should be in a cage there. To open the cage you need to
    destroy all of the Gun Troopers in front of it and a few of the one beside it.
    Once the cage is open, just shoot the bomb again.
    
    #4: Jump from the building you are on and head for the tunnel in front of you.
    (if you don't see the tunnel, it is where the small bomb is, wait for it to
    explode to open the tunnel for you, it should explode as soon as you are close
    to it)  Get in the GUN vehicle, which is at the entrance of the tunnel on your
    left. Once you are in the toxic substance, go straight all the way to the end
    of that road and you should see bomb number 4 in a cage behind some GUN
    Troopers again. Destroy all of the GUN Troopers to reveal bomb number 4 and
    shoot it to activate it.
    
    #5: Once the bomb is activate, you should see a dynamite pack behind it, shoot
    it to get rid of the wall. Behind it there is a pole, use it to go up. You
    should end up at checkpoint number 4. Run pass all of the Aliens and Troopers
    in that street and take the rocket at the end of it (behind the giant Alien) it
    will bring you to checkpoint number 5, from there use the GUN vehicle to cross
    the toxic substance again. On the other side you should see a few GUN Troopers,
    destroy the first one. Destroy the red car in the right corner to find a spring
    to go up and you will find bomb #5 in a cage behind a GUN Trooper, destroy the
    GUN Trooper to open the cage and set off the last bomb.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    V: How to get an A rank on the dark mission
    
    If you did it in this order, you should have an A for this mission. It should
    not take you more than 3:30 to finish it and even without destroying a lot of
    Gun robots you should get a high score for time and get your A easily.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    VI: Location of the small bombs
    
    For the Hero mission you need to help Knuckles destroy 20 of the small bombs
    that are in the city. First of all, you DO NOT make them explode. What you have
    to do is suck them up with the Vacuum pod. If you destroy them it will not
    count. I found a total of 40 small bombs in the city, but try to not let
    too many of them explode or you're going to be missing a few at the end of the
    mission. I will list all of them. You do not have to get the small bombs in the
    order I list them here, but if you do, it will ensure you an A rank for this
    mission. The bomb with the * beside are those who will explode as soon as you
    approach them. Note that if you are fast enough, you can still get a few of
    those one. You might not have your 20 bombs when you reach bomb number 20 of
    this guide because of the one that exploded on you, but just keep going and you
    should still finish the mission and get an A rank.
    
      #1: When you first start Central City, go the way Knuckles is, he might be
      hard to see because he keeps jumping to destroy that hawk above his head, but
      he is on your left at the beginning of the level. Let him talk, and once he
      finish talking, you will see a soldier and a bomb, ignore both for now and go
      destroy the alien right beside them to take his gun, you are going to need
      this to get the 20 small bombs. Once you have the Vacuum pod, press B and
      aim at the small bomb that was beside the gun soldier, this is bomb number
      one.
    
      #2: Just a few steps forward will be bomb number two, use the Vacuum pod
      again to suck it up.
    
      #3: Keep moving forward and you should see some toxic substance down, jump
      where the spring is and take the rocket above to cross the toxic substance
      without getting hurt. Try to land on the ledge where the Alien is. First kill
      the Alien and take his gun to add to you ammunitions. Now get on the speed
      boost to get on top of the building, bomb #3 is there.
    
      #4: Take the pulley to get down on the lower ledge, ignore the Alien and suck
      up bomb number 4.
    
    * #5: This bomb is on a black container, but you won't have time to suck this
      one up, as it will explode before you get close enough to get it.
    
      #6: Jump on the container where bomb number 5 was and jump over the toxic
      substance to reach the 4 rings on the floor, Knuckles will tell you to "use
      that!" just wait until the helicopter gets to you and jump to grab on to it.
      Wait until it is close enough to the balcony where the bomb is to jump on it
      if it's too hard you can do a homing attack on the bomb, this one doesn't
      self destroy. Once you are beside it, just suck it up.
    
      #7: Jump down (watch to make sure to don't fall in the bottomless pit beside)
      and turn right, destroy the Alien there first because he has a Vacuum pod
      that you need and just suck up bomb number 7.
    
    * #8: From there go straight and turn left to go up the hill, you should see
      bomb number 8, but it has a good chance of exploding while you are going
      up the hill, so ignore this one.
    
      #9: Turn right and go up another hill, bomb number 9 should be right there
      and you have time to get this one.
    
    * #10: Continue forward and you should see bomb number 10 but this one has a
      big chance of exploding if the Alien hits you. He will fall from the sky
      right before the bomb.
    
      #11: Go back down the two streets and turn right, you should see a pole
      to go down, ignore this and just jump down, this should bring you to
      checkpoint number 2. Bomb number 11 is just a few steps forward.
    
    * #12: This bomb is just a few steps on the left from bomb number 11, but
      it will explode before you can grab it, so just ignore it and move forward.
    
      #13: Keep walking forward in this street, pass the soldier, and behind a
      car on your right you should see bomb number 13
    
      #14: Keep walking forward from bomb number 13 until you see the giant
      Alien, turn right and go all the way up the hill. You have to jump
      to get beside the speed boost and keep going forward, there will be one
      bomb there. (this bomb is a bit out of you way so you could just ignore it
      but it is still list here) once you have it touch the blue light to awaken
      Hero Shadow and use Chaos Control to get back to where the giant Alien is.
    
    * #15: Turn left where the giant is, it should bring you to where Giant bomb
      #3 is (from the dark mission) small bomb number 15 is on the same ledge as
      the giant bomb, but it will most likely explode before you get to it.
      Although I usually get this one before it explode, so if you are fast enough
      you should be able to get this one.
    
    * #16: Go back down the ledge on the opposite side of where you came from and
      turn right, behind the convertible, you should see bomb number 16. This one
      also explode fast, but is usually catchable before it explode. Just try not
      to suck up the containers and soldier, because that would let enough time to
      the bomb to explode.
    
      #17: Keep going straight and you should end up at checkpoint number 3. From
      there turn right and go into the tunnel. Bomb number 17 should be on your
      left not far after the entrance. (Also, the Shadow container is right
      beside this bomb)
    
    * #18: Keep walking into the tunnel and you should see bomb number 18, which
      has a good chance of exploding before you get it.
    
      #19: Keep walking until you reach the GUN vehicle and the toxic substance
      and you should see bomb number 19 in the green substance, suck up this one
      and get into the GUN vehicle.
    
      #20: Turn left and you should see bomb number 20 behind a GUN Trooper, try
      to suck it up fast or it might explode. 
    
      #21: While driving, look on your left, just before the tunnel, bomb number
      21 should be there behind two fences. Get it and keep going.
    
      #22: Keep going on the toxic substance until you get to the tunnel, bomb
      number 22 should be on your left once inside the tunnel. 
    
    * #23: Keep going inside the tunnel to where the wall is(if there is no wall
      at the end, it's because small bomb number 23 already exploded) no matter
      what, you wouldn't have been able to get it, since it's on the other side 
      of the wall. And even from the other side of the wall, this one always
      explode, probably because it needs to open the tunnel for you. 
    
      #24: Get back inside the tunnel and get in the GUN vehicle, drive to the
      toxic substance and keep going straight in the green goo, you should see
      bomb number 24 while you are driving, it's going to be on you left. Suck it
      up fast before it explode.
    
      #25: Keep driving and bomb number 25 should be on your right not far from
      giant bomb number 4.
    
    * #26: On the other side of the cage there is small bomb number 26, but if you
      got the one above, 26 will explode before you get to it, you can only get one
      out of those two bombs and I find that the one on the right of the cage is 
      easier to get.
    
      #27: Go past giant bomb number 4 and use the dynamite pack to blow up the
      wall, use the pole to go up. This should bring you to checkpoint number 4.
      Destroy all of the Aliens in this street with the turret to open the red
      container, this will give you access to a spring, use it to get to bomb
      number 27. Make sure you do not destroy the balcony with the turret or you
      will not be able to get to bomb number 27.
    
      #28: From that balcony, jump down and turn right, you should see bomb
      number 28.
    
      #29: Make your way to the rocket at the end of the street and bomb number
      29 is on the left of the rocket, once you have it, use the rocket to go up.
    
      #30: You should end up at checkpoint number 5. From there, get into the GUN
      vehicle to cross the green substance. You should see bomb number 30 on your
      left not long after you got into the GUN vehicle.
    
      #31: Keep going into the green substance and bomb number 31 will also be
      on your left a little after bomb number 30.
    
      #32: Keep going and you should see bomb number 32 on your right.
    
      #33: A bit further you should see bomb number 33 on your left.
    
      #34: Keep going a bit further and bomb number 34 will be on your right.
    
      #35: Get on the ledge where the GUN Trooper is, but ignore the spring,
      instead destroy the Trooper and turn right, you should see another road
      jump on it and bomb number 35 will be right there on your left.
    
      #36: Keep going straight in that street and you should see bomb number 36
      on your right, just before checkpoint number 6.
    
      #37: Keep going straight past the Aliens after the checkpoint and you should
      see bomb number 37 behind a GUN soldier.
    
      #38: Keep going in that street and you should end up to bomb 38 not far from
      where a giant Alien is, on your right.
    
      #39: A few steps after you should see bomb number 39 on your left.
    
      #40: If you turn right after, you should see bomb number 40 on a metal
      path, you just have to jump on it to get to it.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    VII:  How to get an A rank on the hero mission
    
    If you did it in this order, you should have an A for this mission. It should
    not take you more than 4:30 to finish it and even without destroying a lot of
    Aliens you should get a high score for time and get your A easily. If you
    didn't let too many bomb explode, you should have your twenty bombs by the time
    you reach bomb 26-28 of this guide.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    VIII: Location of the 5 keys
    
    #1: Key number 1 is between Giant bomb number 1 and Giant bomb number 2. To get
    there, at the beginning of the stage, go pass where Doom's eye is, blow up
    the wall with the dynamite, use the spring to go up. Once there, use the
    giant weight to get to checkpoint number 1. You will need to set off this
    Giant bomb to get key number 1, once the bomb is out of the way, get on the
    metal path behind it, cross it and on the other side destroy the Alien and
    GUN Trooper. Use the weight to get up higher and once there, wait for an
    helicopter to show up, grab onto it and wait until it is high enough for you
    to jump on the roof. Kill the two Aliens there and the crate with Key #1
    will open.
    
    #2: Beside checkpoint number 3, you should see a wall, when you go beside
    it Shadow will say that only his Chaos blast is powerful enough to destroy
    that. Well, use Chaos blast there and Key #2 is behind it.
    
    #3: This key is near small bomb number 27. From checkpoint 4, use the turret
    to destroy the Aliens, but do not blow up the balcony or you will not reach 
    key number 3, once the red crate is open, use the spring to get to small
    bomb number 27, from there jump across to get to key number 3.
    
    #4: Key number 4 is near Giant bomb number 5, get on the same ledge as the
    bomb and destroy the GUN Trooper, once the cage is open, turn around and you
    should be able to grab key number 4.
    
    #5: Key number 5 is pass checkpoint number 6, just before getting to small
    bomb number 38. Is it not visible, it is behind a wall on the left side of
    the street, you will need to use the Vacuum pod to get one of the two
    dynamite packs that are near checkpoint number 6 and carry it to this wall.
    Make sure you don't get hit on the way or you'll loose the dynamite.
    Once you are at the right wall, you should see some kind of glowing coming
    from it, blow this wall and key number 5 is behind.
    
    The special door is located after checkpoint number 3, where you take the left
    tunnel to get to small bomb number 19. The special door is right in front of
    the exit of this tunnel, beside the GUN Trooper. Opening it will give you the
    air saucer.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    IX: Location of the Shadow crates
    
    I found two Shadow crates in this level, there might be more but I did not see
    them yet.
    
    #1: The first one is right after checkpoint number 3, when you get into the
    tunnel to get to small bomb number 17, the special Shadow crate is right
    beside this bomb.
    
    #2: The second one, is a bit before checkpoint number 6. From Giant bomb
    number 5, get onto the road on your left and the Shadow crate is right
    there.
