Introduction...............................................................INTD
###############################################################################
   Shadow the Hedgehog is the new 3D-platformer of SONIC TEAM. The gameplay is 
pretty much like any other 3D sonic game, except that now Shadow can use guns 
vehicles and save points that teleport him.
   Shadow, after helping Sonic save the world, suffers from amnesia, that's 
when Black Doom appears before him, and talks about a promise Shadow have done 
to collect and bring all 7 Chaos Emeralds to him. So then Shadow moves out to 
find them, what happens next is your choice. Be good, be evil, or just be 
Shadow, trying to get his memories back.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Updates....................................................................UPDT
###############################################################################

Version 0.9 - Introduction, Controls and Stages completes. Middle story bosses 
complete.

Next updates: Final bosses, Characters, Endings and Keys.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

###############################################################################
Controls...................................................................CTRS
###############################################################################
   The controls are simple, move, jump, attack, nothing too complicated

 -Left analog stick: Move around.

 -Right analog stick: Move the camera, although it does not help sometimes, the 
camera will just stop moving sometimes.

 -X button: Jump, tap twice to use the homing attack. If you're in a vehicle, X 
will jump too, if possible.

 -Square button: Attack, sonic battle style. If you have a gun, are in a 
vehicle with weapons or in a turret you'll shoot.

 -Circle button: Rolling dash, Switch guns, Ring dash, use the teleportation on 
save points or enter vehicles. Just not two things at a time.

 -Triangle button: Chaos power. If your Dark gauge is full, you will use Chaos 
Blast, a devastating ball kind attack. If your Hero gauge is full, you'll use 
Chaos Control, a teleportation move, with which you can move great distances in 
a small amount of time. While in Chaos Control, you'll always move in the right 
path, which is very useful.

 -R2: Let you move horizontally while facing the same direction. You can attack 
and jump while in this mode.

 -Triangle Jump: Not a control button, but a very useful move. If there are two 
walls near, you can double jump on one of them, and then jump to the next one, 
going forward.

###############################################################################
   Ok, here's the important part of the FAQ. I need to give some warnings 
though. I've completed the game, done all missions and stuff, and well, I found 
it fairly easy. So, I see no reason to explain all stages step by step. The 
main point of this walkthrough is to highlight some important points in each 
stage, some things to avoid and so on. 
   Also, I tell how to complete each objective in the stage, if the objective 
involve finding X objects, I'll tell their location. If the objective is to 
kill X aliens or GUN robots, I'll tell how much you should have killed by each 
save point, so you know when you have to go back. Now, if the objective is to 
just get to the end of the stage, well there's is nothing more to tell you, 
just rush to the end, avoiding get killed, simple as that.
Now I'll explain how the items:

Stage 00XX - Nonnonon -> Name and number of the stage according to this:
      - - -             4a 5a 6a 
  - - - - -       2a 3a 4b 5b 6b
- - - - - - -> 1a 2b 3b 4c 5c 6c
  - - - - -       2c 3c 4d 5d 6d
      - - -             4e 5e 6e

Description -> Well, uh, the description of the stage maybe, you know, how it 
looks like.

Helping character: The character that helps you, and what he or Shadow says in 
the Start screen while you highlight the mission.

Missions: The explanations are divided in:

Neutral -> What to do in the neutral mission, where Shadow plays for himself.

Hero -> What to do in the hero mission, where Shadow plays as the savior of 
humanity.

Dark -> What to do in the dark mission, where Shadow plays as the Executioner 
of the humanity.

-In these last items, how to finish the mission can be explained in these ways:
 - 1st 0/0 2nd 6/6 3rd 2/8 ... -> Save points, with the number of the defeated 
enemies from the last save point (the first number) and the total (the other 
one).
 - 1st: Right after the... 
   2nd: Just before ...
   -> Locations of the X objects to find, I usually use the save points as 
location points, so look out for them.
 -Just go to the end of the stage. -> Well, self explanatory.

   Although I do not write in this FAQ, I DO know hot to get through every 
single step in each stage, so if you have any doubts fell free to email me your 
question and I'll answer it. Jus t don't email me questions like, "How I get 
through the stage 3a", I won't answer this, instead, ask me of a certain part 
and I'll be sure to help.
   Also don't email me questions which answers are in this walkthrough. I may 
answer the first time, but if you ask this kind of questions again, I'll just 
ignore every message from you, so check the FAQ first.
Email to mamlfj@hotmail.com, but be sure to email only useful things as said 
above.

   Warnings and explanations finished, let's begin finally.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stage 1a - Westopolis.....................................................STG1a
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Description - The first stage. Easy and short one. Basically it's a city 
under attack. Laser beams are falling down, and they cause an explosion, 
causing damage. And there are many holes, falling will result in death. Why 
there are holes, I do not know, but there are. Also look out for the burning 
cars, they explode if damaged. The stage is pretty simple, only one path to 
take, no troubles to get to the finish.

Help Character: Dark - The eye "Destroy the soldiers".
                
                Neutral - None "There should be a Chaos Emerald somewhere in 
this city".
                
                Hero - Sonic "Let's show these black creatures that we mean 
business".

Missions:
         Dark: You have to kill 35 GUN soldiers. The good thing is that the GUN 
soldiers don't try to kill you, but the aliens still do, so it's the same.
               1st:0/0 2nd:10/10 3rd:10/20 4th:6/26 5th:7/33 6th:2/35
 
         Neutral: You have to get to the end of the stage. As simple as that, 
no need to kill anyone, although the black creatures attacks you, and killing 
them will rise your Chaos Control bar, which will help you get past the stage 
faster.
 
         Hero: Kill all 45 black creatures, there're pretty much in the open.
               1st:0/0 2nd:23/23 3rd:6/29 4th:4/33 5th:9/42 6th:3/45 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stage 2a - Digital circuit................................................STG2a
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Description - Well, apparently, you are in the computer. How did you get 
inside? Don't know, but it's pretty simple as Rogue is here too. There are some 
rails that you roll pretty fast on it. For instance, you start in one of them. 
There are laser to hurt you, and green blocks that can be destroyed, these will 
either be a barrier or a platform. Also look for the green tubes and bars that 
can be used to go up and down. Almost forgot, you can merge with search lights 
for transport, so do it.

Help Character: Dark - Eye "Destroy the core program"
                Hero - Rogue "Help me find the Chaos emerald"

Missions:
        Dark: You need to destroy the core program that is in the end of the 
stage. Just shoot the core down with all your fire power, it will be destroyed 
fast.
        
        Hero: The emerald is just before the core program, and so before the 
end of the stage. It's well noticeable, so you shouldn't have any problem.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stage 2b - Glyphic Canyon.................................................STG2b
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Description - Waste Land. Pillars collapsing, loops, tornados to catch, 
green jewels to reawaken the temple, Knuckles and the Eye. That's pretty much 
what the stage is. Near the tornados, watch out for flying objects, duck as you 
see them.

Help Characters: Dark - Eye "Touch the glimmering jewel, and reawaken our 
temple"
                 Neutral - None "There's an emerald somewhere in this 
wasteland".
                 Hero - Knuckles "Get rid of these annoying aliens"

Missions:
        Dark: There are five jewels to find and touch, they are green balls on 
supports. Every time you touch one, the ground trembles.
        1st: Right after the 3rd save, right in front of you.
        2nd: In the air steam part, right after the 5th save point, just stay 
on the last steam until you're high enough.
        3rd: Like the first one, but right after the 6th save point.
        4th: Right after the 7th save point, in the open.
        5th: Right before the 8th save and the end of the stage. Kill all black 
creatures and use the jump pad to reach it.
        
        Neutral: Go to the end of the stage, as simple as that.

        Hero: Kill all the black creatures. There are 60 in total.
   1st:0/0 2nd:15/15 3rd:0/15 4th:10/25 5th:2/27 6th:7/34 7th:10/44 8th:16/60

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stage 2c - Lethal Highway.................................................STG2c
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Description - Well, you are in a highway (duh!) that's being used as an 
escape route of one of the black arms tank. There are bombs that explode when 
you're near by, destroying the road, making you take an alternative path. 
That's why some times is kind of difficult to follow that damn tank.

Help characters: Dark - Eye "Withdraw from the city".
                 Hero - Sonic "Smash their tank".

Missions:
        Dark: Just get to the end of the stage, nothing would be simpler.

        Hero: Your aim is to shoot the tank down. Grab a gun and run after the 
tank shooting like crazy. When you run out of ammo, find another gun. The 
tank's shield will turn green and then disappear after enough damage is taken. 
Succeeding in the mission will get you to the boss Black Bull. See boss section 
for information.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stage 3a - Cryptic Castle.................................................STG3a
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Description - Dr. Eggman's castle. There are ghost haunting the towers, some 
braziers to light so big gray balls appear and you can jump on them. Also there 
is the big lanterns defense system, what they do? Who knows, only Dr. Eggman. 
Amy is also here looking for Cream and Cheese. I got to say, Amy pisses me off. 
Oh well...

Help characters: Dark - Dr. Eggman "Light the fire on the giant lanterns".
                 Hero - Amy (although I don't think she helps at all) "Please, 
you got to find Cream"

Missions:
         Dark: You got to find the 5 lanterns and light them with the torches.
         1st: Right after you find Eggman. In the open.
         2nd: Use the balloon after the first lantern. Fall in the middle 
tower, light the braziers and use the ball to go up.
         3rd: After the 5th save, fall on the ball to go up when using the 
balloon.
         4th: In the room full of chaos.
         5th: When you light the forth lantern, a new door will open in the 
room. Go through and use the balloon to light the braziers. Then go ahead grab 
the flying creature, dodge the horizontal pillars and the other flying 
creatures to get to the final lantern.

          Hero: You have to find Cream an Cheese.
          Cream: After the first save, use the balloon fall anywhere, grind and 
break one of the walls in the next room.
          Cheese: In the room full of chaos, there's an altar with green smoke, 
go there and the wall will move back, revealing Cheese.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stage 3b - Prison Island..................................................STG3b
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Description - Well, apparently it's a prison on an island (...). There are 
some cells, fire plants, top secret disks that Charmy is looking for (another 
one that pisses me off) and some green toxic liquid that you have to use a 
floating device to go through. Oh yes, there are some cool jump platforms too, 
they make you go high, way high.

Help Characters: Dark - Eye "Annihilate the human army".
                 Neutral - None "I need to find the Chaos Emerald".
                 Hero - Charmy "Let's find those top secret disks".

Missions:
         Dark: Kill 40 GUN soldiers. There are way more than that, so you don't 
need to kill everyone.
         1st:0/0 2nd:5/5 3rd:7/12 4th:6/18 5th:22/40 6th:- 7th:-
         
         Neutral: The emerald is a little before the end of the stage, in plain 
sight.
       
         Hero: You got to find all 5 disks.
         1st: Right after you find Charmy, in the open.
         2nd: After the first fire plant, use the triangle jump to reach it.
         3rd: Near the rail with the evil essence, and GUN robots near, there's 
a jump platform. Use it and go straight forward.
         4th: Above the emerald. Use the triangle jump.
         5th: In the end of the stage near the last save point.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stage 3c - Circus Park....................................................STG3c
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Description - Another of Eggman's facilities. Shooting galleries and 
jackpots are just distractions while you're in the middle of the war between 
GUN and Eggman's robots. Tails is here, he asks you to collect 400 rings with 
him, well, at least there are a lot of rings. Just DON'T DIE or you'll lose all 
oh them, believe me, I know...

Help Characters: Dark: Dr. Eggman "Get rid of those GUN soldiers".
                 Neutral: None "The emerald must've fallen somewhere near by".
                 Hero: Tails.

Missions:
         Dark: You need to kill 20 GUN robots.
         1st:0/0 2nd:4/4 3rd:6/10 4th:3/13 5th:2/15 6th:5/20 7th:-

         Neutral: The emerald is in the end of the stage, just rush to it.

         Hero: You need to collect 400 rings. If you die, you'll have to 
collect all of them again. If you take damage you'll lose 10 rings, so watch 
it. In shooting galleries, shoot like crazy, you can win up to 50 rings. When 
you can reach the jackpot, do it, and you'll win 50 rings. Passing through fire 
rings will earn you 5 rings, but if you hit it, you'll lose rings so watch it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stage 4a - Central City...................................................STG4a
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Description: Another city stage. This one is in a major fix. Small bombs 
exploding everywhere, massive bombs programmed to explode, green toxic liquid 
everywhere, GUN mech units and Black arm's giants battling each other while 
Knuckles try to save the city and the Eye try to destroy it. What a nice place 
to live.

Help Characters: Dark: The Eye "Detonate the massive bomb, before time is out".
                 Hero: Knuckles "We need to find the smaller bombs before time 
runs out".

Missions:
         For this stage I have not made an walkthrough, as there's a FAQ 
specially made for it, and I didn't have the patience to write down the 
locations of 40 small bombs. So if you need a walkthrough, check out Shadow 
blackHedgehog's FAQ at gamefaqs.com. In a later update I may write the 
locations here with my own way, but probably not.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stage 4b - The Doom.......................................................STG4b
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Description: A flashback of Shadow in the ARK with Maria. You can help Maria 
escape, help the researchers or even take revenge on GUN. As you don't remember 
a thing, you can make your own memories.

Help Characters: Dark: The Eye "Take revenge on the soldiers".
                 Neutral: None "I've gotta help Maria escape".
                 Hero: Maria "Please, rescue the others".

Missions:
         Dark: Kill 50 GUN soldiers.
         1st:0/0 2nd:14/14 3rd:5/19 4th:18/37 5th:13/50 6th:-
 
         Neutral: Just get to the end of the stage.

         Hero: There are ten researchers that need help. You need to get a heal 
unit and throw near them.
         1st: Before 1st save point, near the heal unit.
         2nd and 3rd: right after the 1st save point, both in the open.

Final Mission..............................................................FNLM
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Soon...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

###############################################################################
Bosses.....................................................................BOSS
###############################################################################

   This section still needs actualization, as it don't have the last bosses, 
but it'll be complete in the next version, I hope.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Black Bull.................................................................BULL
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   The first boss in the game if you're in the hero path. He appears in Lethal 
highway and in Death Ruins. He's a big, big flying, one eyed monster. Why bull? 
No idea.
*******************************************************************************
Lethal Highway.............................................................LTLH 
*******************************************************************************

   He's in the city and likes to fly around the block. With him are a few 
ground aliens and those flying aliens he releases.

Attacks: 
         -Shoots a fireball in your direction, easily avoided if you're not too 
close to him.
         -Shoots a fire wave. After he takes half bar damage he'll shoot more 
than one consecutively, so keep jumping over them.
         -Release some flying creatures.

Weak Spot: His big green eye.

How to defeat: Either use your homing attack on the flying creatures he 
releases to get to his eye and keep damaging him, or grab a gun from one of the 
ground aliens, and shoot his eye. If you shoot him, he will escape right away 
if he's not attacking, so don't waste ammo if he's not looking at you. If you 
get a gun, use the Chaos Control when you can, and everything will star moving 
slowly but you and your bullets, so you can keep firing at him.

*******************************************************************************
Death Ruins................................................................DTHR
*******************************************************************************

   Black Bull is in the middle of the platform with rails to grind all over him 
and jump pads to get to the rails.

Attacks:
        -Shoots a fireball at you if you're on the ground level.
        -Shoots fire waves consecutively if you're on the rail.

Weak Spot: His eye.

How to defeat: Get a gun, use the jump pad and grind. When you get as near as 
possible to the black bull, jump and keep shooting. Shadow will hover while 
shooting, so you can finish black bull doing this only one time. If he start to 
shoot the fire waves, dodge them first, then start the shooting.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Heavy Dog..................................................................HVYD
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   A GUN bigger robot. Round and equipped with homing missiles and mines. Hover 
above the ground.

*******************************************************************************
The Doom...................................................................DOOM
*******************************************************************************

   You'll find Heavy Dog here, with four platforms to climb to so you can 
attack him. The Eye will help you here.

Attacks:
        -Particle beam cannon, a 360 degree attack that has a limited but long 
range. Needs charging and heavy dog cannot move while using it.
        -Shoots homing missiles at you.
        -Leaves mines in the air.

Weak Spot: Upper section.

How to defeat: Go up on one of the platforms, use your homing attack on him. 
While you're attacking, he'll drop some homing missile weapon, grab it and use 
it against him.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Blue Falcon................................................................BLFC
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   A blue and orange GUN robot, like heavy dog, but can fly. Also have the 
homing missile weapons, but not the mines.

*******************************************************************************
The ARK....................................................................TARK
*******************************************************************************

   You're in a two store platform, with jump pads to get to the upper section, 
and Blue falcon flying around it. The Eye will help you here.

Attacks:
        -Particle beam cannon, a 360 degree attack that has a limited but long 
range. Needs charging and blue falcon cannot move while using it.
        -Shoots homing missiles at you.

Weak Spot: Upper section.

How to defeat: Use the jump pad and go up. Keep using your homing attacks on 
him. Eventually he'll drop the homing missile weapon, grab it and use it. When 
he uses the particle beam cannon, go to the other side of the platform.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Egg Breaker................................................................EGGB
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   A big, pointed nose, Eggman's robot with a spiked club in his right hand. 
Appears three times.

*******************************************************************************
Cryptic Castle.............................................................CRCT
*******************************************************************************

   Even if you help Eggman in this stage, you'll have to battle him here, with 
Amy "helping" you.

Attacks:
        -Lights Out attack, he dashes at you, jump, then fall hitting his club 
on the ground, causing a shockwave.
        -If you're far from him, he'll throw his club at you, causing a 
shockwave as it hits the ground.
        -Spins around, walking in your direction.

Weak Spot: Cockpit.

How to defeat: Grab a weapon, go near him and start shooting. When he does the 
Lights Out attack, jump away, and then continue shooting.

*******************************************************************************
Mad Matrix.................................................................MMTX
*******************************************************************************

   This time you're on a platform with floating boxes above you. On the 
floating boxes are Eggman's robots with pistols, on the ground they have 
bazookas, these are a pain. Espio is here to help you.

Attacks:
        -Lights Out attack, he dashes at you, jump, then fall hitting his club 
on the ground, causing a shockwave.
        -Creates 8 clubs copies around him, and then thrown them away. "You 
know what they say, the more the merrier".
        -If you're far from him, he'll throw his club at you, causing a 
shockwave as it hits the ground.

Weak Spot: Cockpit.

How to defeat: Grab a weapon and shoot him. Jump away when he uses the lights 
out attack. If he throws the copies, stand between any two to dodge. If you 
need room to breath, or want a pistol, go up using the red jump pads and grab 
the green bar ascending.

*******************************************************************************
Iron Jungle................................................................IRJG
*******************************************************************************

   Eggman's machine is on a platform now. In the ground you find all his 
robots, including the shadow androids. You'll also find two turrets and two 
rockets. Omega will help you here.

Attacks:
        -Laser beam from his eyes, one form each eye.
        -Lights Out attack when he is on the ground, he dashes at you, jump, 
and then fall hitting his club on the ground, causing a shockwave.
        -If you're very far from him, while he's on the ground, he'll throw his 
club at you, causing a shockwave as it hits the ground.

Weak Spot: Cockpit.

How to defeat: I consider this one as the easiest boss in the game. Enter the 
turret and shoot him. He'll come down after half bar damage taken. Continue 
shooting him with the turret. If he destroys the turret you're on, either grab 
the turret's weapon, or go to the other one. I managed to defeat him in 12,70 
seconds, so it should be pretty simple.
