    About this walkthrough
    
    This document is the text-version of the complete walkthrough
    for Tails Adventure, for the Sega Game Gear. This walkthrough
    covers 100% of the game, with all items. Please note that
    my English is far from perfect (since English isn't my
    home language), but I have tried my best. ;)
    
    After each zone in the walkthrough, I have put a password,
    in case there is any specific place where you want to start,
    or if there is any part which you simply want to skip. For
    example, the password you will have when the game starts,
    will look like this:
    
    D219
    54D4
    AE59
    D2E0
    
    A *thank you* goes to Spider, and to Cameron Rapp for
    giving me a helping hand (I was stuck at one place, but they
    helped me further).

    The Story behind the game
    
    Sonic and Tails are having vacation, and have split up
    for the moment. Tails discovers an island as he is
    having his vacation. He calls the island "Tails Island".
    After some sleep in a peaceful forest, things suddenly get
    hot when an army of robo-ducks attack the island. But Tails
    is not going to let the robo-ducks take over the island. He
    sets off on an adventure on the island to make it peaceful
    once again.
    ------
    
    Item List
    
    Regular Bomb - The only item you start with. An ordinary bomb
    to use to destroy robots and stoneblocks in your way.
    
    Large Bomb - This bomb is used to destroy stronger stone
    blocks at specific places. It can not be thrown away in the
    same way like the regular bomb.
    
    Remote Bomb - Similar to the Regular Bomb, but the
    difference with this bomb is that it will roll on the
    ground for while when it hits the floor (after being thrown).
    Good to use in narrow passages.
    
    Napalm Bomb - Also similar to the Regular Bomb, but it is
    useless before it hits the ground. The flames that are coming
    out of the bomb are very effective against robots (specially
    bees on the Green Island), and you can also destroy green
    stone blocks with this item.
    
    Trible Bomb - Like the Regular Bomb, but much more effective.
    
    Wrench - The name says very much what it is. This item is to
    be used in the final zone.
    
    Helmet - Tails can hide under the helmet, to become invincible
    for robots and their attacks. But while using this item, he
    can not move.
    
    Remote Robot - A very practical little fellow which can
    collect important items in narrow passages where Tails
    can't go.
    
    Hammer - A short weapon which Tails can use instead for bombs.
    He can destroy stone blocks with this item as well.
    
    Teleport Device - This item brings you back home immediately.
    
    Night Vision - With this item, Tails can see in the dark in
    Polly Mt. 2.
    
    Speed Boots - Speed up! :)
    
    Super Gloves - An item to use for carrying heavy items.
    
    Fang - Increases your luck. Youīll get rings more often.
    
    Knuckles - Enables Tails to hit the robots, like Knuckles
    the echidna. 
    
    Sonic - Make a Sonicspin! :)
    
    Item Radar - With this item, you can check if you have
    forgotten to collect any item in the area.
    
    Radio - A useless item, but quite nice even so. You can use
    the radio to change music while playing.
    
    Blue, Green, Purple, Red, White, Yellow Emerald - Your
    Maximum ring units go up by 10. When you have gotten all
    emeralds, your maximum ring units goes up to 99. The emeralds
    can not be equipped.
    
    
    Items for the Sea-Fox (Your submarine)
    
    Proton Torpedo - A powerful weapon.
    
    Vulcan Gun - The standard weapon, equipped to the Sea Fox
    in the beginning.
    
    Extra Speed - With the extra speed, you can build up speed
    and make higher jumps at Crystal Lake.
    
    Extra Armour - Invincibility!! :)
    
    Air-AirMissile - To shoot upwards, and to destroy obstacles
    in the way.
    
    Spark - Destroys all enemies and mines on the screen. Very effective.
    
    Mine - To shoot in down direction, and to destroy obstacles
    in the way.
    
    Rocket Booter - Enables your Sea Fox to fly.
    ------
    
    Walkthrough
    
    At the beginning of the game, there are only two places
    where you could go: Tails' House and Poloy Forest. In Tails'
    House you can equip items, prepare your submarine, and get
    passwords. When Tails goes back to his house, his ring units
    get restored, so it is a good idea to return to the house
    after completing a zone.
    
    As you are playing the game, keep your eyes open for small
    stone blocks on left or right walls. They almost always
    contain rings that restores your ring units (your energy).
    
    POLOY FOREST
    Part 1
    
    Let's go, bro! :) But there is actually nothing of special
    interest in this fire forest, the only thing you need to do
    here is simply to get through. Use your regular bomb to
    destroy stone blocks on your way. When you have climbed up
    inside something which looks like a tree (I guess it is a
    tree), and you have continued a bit to the right, and there
    is a large hole, try falling down in the middle to avoid
    getting hit by the robo-duck that are sitting (sitting
    ducks...) on the edges (they are shooting at you). At the
    bottom of the hole, you will find a blue bumper. Push it
    to the right, so that you can jump up trough the small
    creek in the "roof" to the right.
    
    Part 2
    
    Simply continue walking to the right. Be careful with
    the bridge which has a dark red colour, it will break as
    you walk on it, but simply keep going, and you won't get
    damaged by the spikes under the bridge. As you continue to
    the right, you will find yourself on a bridge with a hole
    and another bridge to the right. You must continue to the
    right, so flying over would be the easiest way, if it
    wasn't for contrary winds. Instead, you must jump over the
    hole. Make sure to jump as high as you can, when you are
    standing on the edge (you also need to build up some speed
    before jumping). After the bridge, you will find an item
    just below you, under another bridge. You can't get this
    item quite yet, so simply continue on your way to the
    right till that you reach another way down. There are also
    two green plattforms (or whatever they are). Fly up/right
    here with help of these platforms. You will find a mountain
    with some stonewalls. break the walls with your bomb, and
    you will get your first item, the RED CHAOS EMERALD. Bomb
    the stone floor below, and exit to the right.
    
    Part 3
    
    There is only one way to go here, and here you face the
    first boss. A robo-duck in a walking machine. He is an
    easy boss. Just throw 10 bombs at him, and he is
    destroyed. Now you will get your second item, the REMOTE
    ROBOT. Now you could continue right to exit and get a
    password, but I suggest you to first go back to part 2
    and collect the item which you couldn't reach before. Go
    back to the bridge and the hole in part 2, where you met
    contrary winds, if you tried to fly over. Use the remote
    robot and let it fall down in the hole. Steer it to the
    left on the ground. You will find a narrow passage on the
    ground. Steer the robot inside the passage. In the end of
    it, you will find the third item, SPEED BOOTS. Now go back
    with the robot and go right this time instead. Fly up with
    the robot on the right side, and you will find another
    narrow passage. It leads to your fourth item, the RADIO.
    After getting these items, get out of the area (I don't
    remember for sure if you need to exit through part 3, but
    you better do, just in case). By now your password should
    look like this:
    
    D201
    44D4
    EE11
    D6E6
    
    VOLCANIC TUNNEL
    Part 1
    
    This tunnel is more complicated to go trough. The first
    thing you need to do is to go straight right. You will
    eventually find your fifth item, the HAMMER. Now go back a
    bit to the left and destroy the stone bridge (with your bomb).
    Fall down through the hole, and make sure that you fall down
    trough the middle of the hole (you will fall into lava if you
    fall too far to the left or right). Continue right. The safest
    way to get trough here is by flying over the lava. If you jump,
    the risk is high that you hit the spikes in the roof. After
    some walking, you will find another narrow passage. Steer
    your remote robot inside to collect item #6, REMOTE BOMB. Now
    get back to the beginning of the stage and exit. Go back to
    Tails' House and equip the remote bomb. Go back to the
    volcano tunnel, and the entire way to the narrow passage.
    There are two ways leading up here. The right way is blocked,
    so fly up the left way. Switch to the remote bomb, and throw
    away a bomb through the hole against the green robot. The
    robot explodes with the small blocking stone bridge. Get
    down, and up the other way and exit to the right.
    
    Part 2
    
    Simply go right and continue upwards as much as you can (there
    is no point in going down in the hole in the beginning), till
    that you find a narrow passage and a stone block blocking the
    way. Switch to the remote bomb and throw in a bomb to destroy
    the stone block. Go up that way and continue on your way.
    Break the stone floor over the lava a bit further on, in
    such a way so that you can continue without falling into the
    lava. As you continue, you will find your next item, the
    GREEN EMERALD. From this point, destroy the stone blocks to
    the up/left, and continue that way. You will find another
    narrow passage and a stone bridge. Use the remote bomb the
    usual way (stand as far out on the edge to the left before
    you throw it, in other case it hits the roof and stops).
    Exit to the right. By now your password should look like this:
    
    F201
    CCD4
    FC11
    D6E3
    
    POLLY MT. 1
    Part 1
    
    In the beginning, there is only one way to go. On your way,
    you will find an item behind a stone wall, which you can't
    reach yet (none of the items you have collected so far can
    help you here), so continue on till that a wind has blown you
    up, and you are standing "outside" the mountain. From this
    point, there are two ways to go, either up, or down (by
    destroying the stone block). First of all, go up, and
    collect your next item, the HELMET. Continue upwards (there
    is only one way to go), and exit to the next area.
    
    Part 2
    
    In this section, jump to the next platform, and then simply
    fall down (if you continue up/right, you will see another
    item which you can't reach yet). Destroy the stone floor,
    and go down. You will pass some bridges that will break as
    you walk on them. Do not fall down from the first or second
    bridge! Instead, fall down trough the third. A wind blows
    you upwards, and if you continue up/left, you will get the
    item which you couldn't reach in the beginning of this part,
    the KNUCKLES. As you have taken this item, go straight right,
    destroy the stone wall, and simply fall down. You are now
    back on the map, but no new zone has opened. Now go back into
    the mountain, and this time, take the other way down, where
    the way split in two in part one. You will exit to the right.
    
    Part 3
    
    Continue on till that you reach a hole where you can't see
    the bottom (there are also a few brown plattforms). Fall down
    here and destroy the stoneblocks to the left and go that way
    to find SUPER GLOVE. Get back up to the top and fly over the
    hole without falling down. Destroy the stoneblock in the
    floor and continue right. You will reach another hole. Fly
    over it and continue down, to the right. When you have gone
    down, you will see that the way splits in two again, left
    and right. The way to the right leads to an exit to the next
    boss. To the left is another hole, and a stone wall. After
    breaking this stone wall, you can restore your rings units
    completely by collecting the rings inside, and as soon as
    you get out of sight of the rings, they will pop up again.
    But going here is a bit risky. If you fall down in the
    hole, you have to start from the beginning again. If you
    decide to try, use the remote bomb, and let it detonate
    in the very moment as it touches the stone wall. After
    doing this, exit to the right (the other way).
    
    Part 4
    
    It is bosstime again. You will see an annoying green bird
    (no, I donīt think it is Bean from Sonic the Fighters...well,
    possibly!), and you can't destroy him either. The only thing
    you shall do is to fly up to the top here. I don't have any
    good advice about how to do it, you simply have to try till
    that you succeed in reaching the top. Going back for taking
    the password is a good idea, in case Tails fails (hehe...)
    to get up to the top. By now your password should look like
    this:
    
    F221
    CC74
    FC11
    D6E7
    
    The only advice I can give is to keep yourself in motion as
    much as possible, specially when the bird is going to attack
    from above. When you finally have reached the top, the bird
    drops the PURPLE CHAOS EMERALD. Now Tails will automatically
    go home, and see that he now can go underwater! Equip the
    vulcan gun to your sea-fox. By now your password should look
    like this:
    
    F621
    CC74
    FC91
    D6EB
    
    Select "Dock" and then "ready". Now you can proceed to "Lake Rocky".
    
    LAKE ROCKY
    
    This lake is a pretty big one, with several ways to go. All
    ways are however not open for you yet. Stoneblocks are
    blocking the ways up and down. There is one way up which you
    could go to reach the beginning of "Lake Crystal", the lake
    on the island, but there is not very much you can do there
    yet, so for now, just gettrough this zone to the right
    (finding trough is easy). You will finally reach Cavern
    Island.
    
    CAVERN ISLAND
    Part 1
    
    This cavern is a bit tricky. First of all, go right till
    that you reach a large pool, with some green plattforms. Go
    to the right wall, and jump into the water. You will end up
    in a new room below. Break the stoneblocks to the left and
    the blocks over the pool. Jump into the water, and simply
    follow the stream. Now you are in a room with two small
    waterways. Step into the first one (if you take the other
    one, you will be brought back to the beginning of the stage).
    You will end up in a new place. As you go on, you will see
    another item, which you can't reach for the very moment.
    Stand on the area between the two pools. A stone plattform
    is very well hidden here on the ground, but simply destroy
    it and you can continue on (I stuck here for a long time
    when I hadn't found it, I thought Tails would be stuck
    forever). Go down and continue till that you are into the
    water again. Use your remote robot, and let it fly up in
    the water. It will reach the object you couldn't reach
    (see above), and it is a new item to your submarine, the
    MINE. Bring back the robot to Tails and continue right,
    jump out of the water on the bumber, go up and then right
    to exit. Be careful with the annoying robo-bats here.
    
    Part 2
    
    There is only one way to go in the beginning, so keep going
    till that you reach a room with spikes on the right wall,
    and a small pool next to it. Go left here and walk over
    the first bridge that breaks, and continue to the next
    one which breaks as well. Here are two stoneblocks blocking
    the way to the water. Destroy them and get into the water.
    Go right in the water (don't jump in the middle water way,
    then you will be brought back to the beginning). As you
    continue on, you will walk on a very small bridge that
    breaks, and under is a hole. Continue down and use the
    remote bomb in the narrow passage to destroy the blocking
    stoneblock. Fly up, and continue. After walking down, you
    will land in a pool, and there is a hole to the left. If
    you stand on the edge to the hole, you will see that there
    are some stoneblocks blocking a way to the left. Throw
    down some bombs to destroy the first two blocks. Go down
    into the hole, and go quickly to the left side (the bridge
    you stand on will break). Break the other stonewall, and
    you will find NAPALM BOMB. After taking it, continue down
    and go left (not right!) to exit. Before you exit, you can
    destroy some stoneblocks to the right to restore your ring
    units a bit.
    
    Part 3
    
    It is boss-time, and the boss is a giant robo-chicken. This
    boss is split into two parts. First of all, the robo-chicken
    is completely covered with armour. Start flying and drop
    bombs on the head. After a couple of hits, the armour around
    the head explodes, and you will see a robo-duck. Keep flying
    and drop bombs on his head. After another couple of hits,
    the robo-chicken explodes, and leaves a new item, the
    ANTI-AIRMISSILE. Now get back to Tails Home and equip the
    mine and anti-airmissile to the submarine. By now your
    password should look like this:
    
    E721
    CC70
    FC90
    D644
    
    When you are prepared to go on, then go back to Lake Rocky
    (select "dock", then "ready" from Tails House).
    
    LAKE ROCKY (for the second time)
    Part 1
    
    With the mine and the anti-airmissile, you are now able to
    destroy stoneblocks above and below yourself, and there are
    now three new places where you can go. The first way in the
    beginning of the lake leads to a boss (read below), and the
    second way upwards lead to Lake Crystal, in the middle of the
    island (on the map), but you won't reach far here yet, so
    don't go there yet. The third way goes down, but this place
    is too dangerous. You don't stand a chance against the
    cannons for the moment. So, go up the first way in the
    beginning and you will reach a boss.
    
    Part 2
    
    It is boss-time again, but this boss is an easy one. Simply
    stay in the middle, a bit down, and shoot anti-airmissiles
    straight up. You can hit the ship anywhere, you don't need
    to hit the ducks. When the ship is destroyed, you can
    continue to Green Island.
    
    GREEN ISLAND
    
    On this island you only (it is not just "only", it is a bit
    tricky because of all winds) have to collect three items.
    There is no boss on this island, and the island doesn't
    lead to any other stage. You need to be equipped with the
    Napalm Bomb on this stage.
    
    Part 1
    
    Go right in the beginning and throw a napalm bomb on the
    green stone wall under the spikes. Keep going right, and
    you'll find a bumper. Use the remote robot and let him push
    down the bumper to the left, so that it stands directly
    under the hole in the roof. Bring back the robot to Tails,
    and jump up. Keep going right, and stop when you reach the
    next tree. There is a hidden trap here. If you walk through
    the tree, you will fall down through a hidden hole, and you
    have to start from the beginning again. So instead, fly
    through the tree. Keep going right till that you are in a
    large tree with stoneblocks on the ground. Destroy the
    two stoneblocks in the middle, and use the remote robot,
    and steer it into the hole. it will look like it has vanished,
    but it hasn't. In the hole, steer it left, then fly up when
    you can't go any further and collect the first item, EXTRA
    SPEED. Bring back the remote robot to Tails, and step out
    of the tree, to the left. Fly straight up. A wind will help
    you on your way. You will see two other entrances to the
    tree. Step into the top one (not on the bridge!). You
    will find a couple of stone blocks inside the tree. Destroy
    them and go inside, and fly up to the bridge above. Jump
    (or fly) over the hole. Do not fall down! Exit to the right.
    
    Part 2
    
    Go right in the beginning and fly between the spikes, and
    destroy the stoneblocks that are blocking the way. Fly up and
    go over the stone bridge. Be careful with the next tree,
    there is another hidden hole here, so you need to fly over.
    Continue up and right. Destroy the stoneblocks that are
    blocking the entrance to the tree, go inside and fly up.
    There is only one way to go here, so keep going. Fly over
    the spikes. A wind from behind will push you further. Don't
    land on the middle wooden platform, that's another hidden
    hole. Fly up, destroy the next stoneblocks, and you will
    reach the second item: NIGHT VISION. From this point, fly
    straight up through the tree above you. Then fly over to
    the right side, and continue right as far as possible. You
    will notice a small stoneblock in the wall. Destroy it and
    put your remote robot inside the narrow passage. It will
    now fall down in a little hole. Steer the remote robot to
    the left, and you will get the last item on the island, the
    WHITE EMERALD. With these three items collected, there is
    nothing more to be done here, so get back now to the very
    beginning of the island. Finding the way out is easy, so
    I don't think I need to tell how to find out. Use the
    hidden traps, they will bring you out faster. Back at
    Tails House, equip the extra speed to the submarine. By
    now your password should look like this:
    
    E721
    E870
    FCB4
    F444
    
    Enter the submarine and get back again to Lake Rocky.
    
    LAKE ROCKY (for the third time)
    
    Simply get through the first two parts of the lake (there is
    only one way mainly). In the third part, go upwards in the
    beginning. In the next part, keep going upwards (finding
    the way through is easy). There is a room with a couple of
    rings quite high to the left, in case you need to restore
    the ring units a bit. You can exit this room and go back
    over and over again till that your rings have been
    completely restored. Keep going upwards to the next part
    of the next part, and exit to the right. Now you will find
    yourself in Lake Crystal, on the island. But before you
    continue here, get back to Tails House and heal up. By now
    your password should look like this:
    
    E725
    E870
    FCB4
    F440
    
    LAKE CRYSTAL
    
    This place is a tricky one. You have to avoid the enemies
    and at the same time, you must jump up to higher levels to
    the right. There is not very much advice I can give about this
    place. Just try it all  over and over again till that you
    get through (or use the password below... :) ). In the first
    part you need to jump over an enormous waterfall. To jump
    over it, stand exactly to the stone wall, where the water
    falls down, and charge up the speed. You ill hear how the
    power rises. In the very moment when it is at its maximum,
    jump and press right. If you did it correctly, then you can
    continue to the next part. The lake (I would more call it
    a river than a lake) contains two parts. When you have
    passed this place, you will get access to the next area,
    Polly Mt. 2. By now your password should look like this:
    
    E725
    E878
    FCB4
    F448
    
    POLLY MT. 2
    Part 1
    
    OK, who turned out the lights? It is pitch-dark here, so
    here you need to use the night vision first of all, in other
    case, it will be almost impossible to find your way through
    this place. First of all go down. You will see an item at
    the bottom. To take this item, you have to get a bit
    damaged. Go down to the left side into the lava, and
    destroy the stonewalls in front of the item *quickly* and
    jump up on the platform and get the item, the ITEM RADAR.
    When you have taken this item, get back to Tails House and
    heal up. By now your password should look like this:
    
    E725
    E878

    Part 2
    
    After healing up at Tails House, go back to the mountain,
    and get through the first part, simply by going to the
    up/right part of the screen. be careful with the robo-bats
    and the spikes. As you enter the second part, everything
    becomes pitch-dark again, so first of all, use the night
    vision again. Fly upwards and left and destroy the
    stoneblocks. As you continue left, you will see a hole
    and some platforms. Jump to the first platform, then fall
    straight down from the left edge of it, to land safely on
    a platform below. This new platform (between the two pools
    of lava) has a stone floor. Break it, but do not fall
    down! Instead, use your remote robot. Let it first take
    off, so that it starts to fly. Now steer it down into
    the hole. In the hole you will find a narrow passage.
    Steer the robot inside. In the end of the passage you
    will find the next object: FANG. Bring back the remote
    robot to Tails. Now fly upwards and left (you are
    supposed to go straight up, but you can't go straight
    up because of a contrary wind). Go up, and then right
    and continue in that direction as far as possible. You
    will eventually see a lava pool, and a platform over it,
    and a stonebridge over the platform. Simply throw a
    regular bomb on the bridge to break it. Continue upwards
    and left as far as possible. Next part of this stage is
    tricky. You are supposed to get straight up, but, as I
    wrote above, contrary winds are stopping you. You need
    to break the stonewalls on the left in such a way so
    that you create platforms, and that you get higher and
    higher, when you continue to the next part of
    stoneblocks. It could be a bit difficult to throw the
    bombs correctly, but it should work out after a couple
    of attempts. Keep in mind that your goal is to go straight
    up, in the end. When you finally are standing on the first
    stone platform, on the top/right, you will see another
    stonewall to the right. Throw a couple of bombs on
    distance and jump over when the way is cleared out.
    When you are standing on "safe ground" again, go
    right, pass the first pool of lava. Then stop, and use
    the remote robot. You will find a narrow passage in the
    roof. Steer up the remote robot in the passage to get
    the next item: LARGE BOMB. When you have collected these
    items, get back, out of the mountain. Go back to Tails
    House and equip the large bomb. By now your password
    should look like this:

    Now, go back to Polly Mt. 1 (not 2!).
    
    POLLY MT. 1 (for the second time)
    
    It is finally time to collect the item you saw such a long
    time ago, when you were here for the first time. Simply go
    through the mountain till that you reach the place with the
    item behind a stone wall, and the moving platform. Stand on
    the platform and stand next to the right wall. When you are
    on the same level as the stone wall, use the large bomb. The
    stone wall will be destroyed and you can collect the item:
    ROCKET BOOTER. After collecting it, go back to Poloy Forest.
    
    POLOY FOREST (for the second time)
    
    Be sure to have the napalm bomb equipped. Go right in the
    beginning, and go into the first mountain. Break the stone
    floors here on the ground and go down. Now use the napalm bomb
    on the green rocks to destroy it. The way you find here will
    lead you to an item: SPARK. Now continue on to the second part
    of the forest, and continue to the place in this area, where
    you got contrary winds, if you tried to fly over a bridge
    (read above). Fall down here (beware of the spikes at the
    bottom), and go right as far as possible. Destroy the green
    rocks here with the Napalm bomb, and go right as far as
    possible to reach Caron Forest.
    
    CARON FOREST
    Part 1
    
    Have the remote robot, the regular bomb, and the napalm bomb
    equipped. Walk right in the beginning, across the bridge.
    Destroy the green blocks with the napalm bomb, and walk out
    through the wall to the right (it looks like go canīt go
    through the wall, but you can!), and keep going til that you
    canīt go further. Fly up and land on the plattform above. Go
    right as far as possible, and use the remote robot. Let the
    robot walk into the narrow passage on the right side, and up.
    Let him push down the rock, so that Tails can step up on it.
    Jump up to the edge to the right (Tails will grab on to the
    edge, and contrary winds make you unable to fly). From here,
    fly up to the cliff on the left side, and continue left as
    far as possible to get the blue chaos emerald. Destroy the
    stone floors here, and fall straight down. Fly straight
    right from here (you will see a platform with a bumper
    above you), and you will reach another plattform on the
    right side here. Keep going right, and push the bumper in
    right direction as far as possible, and you will get the
    next item, triple bomb. Now you are done in this area, so
    continue on to part 2.
    
    Part 2
    
    Keep going til that you have gone down in a tree in the
    beginning. There are two ways to go here, left and right.
    Go left, and continue down. Here you must fly over the hole,
    and it is tricky, becuase if you fall down, then you will
    fall out of the forest, and you have to start all over
    again (but of course you keep your items). Keep flying
    right, make a pause on the first plattform if you like,
    and then fly up through the first hole (fly carefully up
    close to the spikes without touching them, and youīll see
    the hole). Fly up to the plattform above, go right and
    destroy the stone blocks, and you will get the next item,
    SONIC. Be sure to have at least one stoneblock destroyed,
    that is above you. Keep going right, and fall down. Keep
    going right. Fly up, and destroy the stone walls. Here,
    use the remote robot, and let it fly back to the place
    where you found SONIC. Let it fly up where I meantioned
    that you would destroy one stoneblock above you. Let it
    fly up into the narrow passage to the right, and push out
    the bumper out of the passage, so that Tails can jump up
    on it (there are winds that makes you unable to fly up).
    Bring back the robot to Tails, and jump up on the bumper.
    Destroy the stone block on the left side, and put your
    remote robot into the passage to get the next item,
    PROTON TORPEDO. Exit the forest after taking this object.
    By now your password should look like this:
    
    AFA5
    E828

    Now, go back to the Volcanic Tuunel.
    
    VOLCANIC TUNNEL (2nd time)
    
    Be sure to have with you the remote robot, regular bomb,
    remote bomb and large bomb. Simply get through the first
    part, and enter part 2. Keep going right in the begiining,
    and fall down when you see spikes in the roof. On the bottom,
    you will see a pool of lava. Down here, go to the right, and
    you will see a stone wall that you canīt destroy with the
    regular or remote bomb. Instead, use the large boms to get
    pass this wall.
    
    In the next room, fall straight down, and you will land on
    a safe plattform (the other plattforms are breaking as you
    walk on them. Destroy the stonewall to the right with your
    regular bomb, and keep going that direction. In the next
    room, down fall down, there is lava on the bottom. Instead
    fly up/right through this room, and continue up/right as
    far as possible. There seems to be nothing of interest
    here, with nowhere to go, but there is a hidden way down
    between the lava pools here. Use the large bomb on the
    plattfrom. The plattform is a stonewall going down. Continue
    down as far as possible. Go left from here, you will reach
    the next boss (after destroying a stonewall with the large
    bomb on that side).
    
    The boss is standing still but he is not an easy boss just
    because of that. First of all, try to fly over him , so
    that you are standing behind him. This is difficult, because
    the boss shoots with his machine-gun against you, but it is
    possible to do it. When you are standing behind him, start
    flying, and start dropping boms on his head (listen
    carefully to the sound-effects, so that you really hear
    that you hit. You must hit him perfectly on the head, the
    risk is very high that you miss). You have hit him 9 times
    before he loses his armor. Then, things are getting harder,
    he shoots electric balls at you, ans also uses his
    machinegun. Now you have to hit him another 16 times
    before he explodes. When he is gone, fly up, and you will
    find your next item for your Sea fox, EXTRA ARMOR. By now
    your password should look like this:
    
    AFA5
    EA28
    55B4
    6D15
    
    LAKE ROCKY
    
    Be sure to have the Extra Armor, the mine and Proton
    Torpedo equipped. Use the Extra Armor right away, and
    you an invincible! Go through the first part. In the
    second part, use the extra armor again, and keep going
    right, til that you see stoneblocks blocking a way going
    down. Use the mine to get rid of this wall, and continue
    down. In the next scene, use the extra armor again, and
    simply keep going, there is only one way to go. Nothing
    here will harm you. Destroy eventual stoneblocks on your
    way.
    
    In the next scene, use the extra armor again, and keep
    going as far as possible through, til that you reach a
    room with a blue pipe where small birds are coming out.
    Fire off a couple of Proton Torpedo against the pipe,
    and it will explode. Exit to the right. By now your
    password should look like this:

    COCO ISLAND
    Part 1
    
    Be sure to have the remote robot, and the triple bomb equipped.
    
    Go right in the beginning, and hit the first blue switch.
    The blue barrier next to it vanishes. Donīt fall down in
    the hole just in front of it. In the next room, there are
    robo-ducks shooting at you. They are hard to kill, so I
    suggest that you fly above them and ignore them instead.
    In the end of the room, destroy the stonewall going down,
    and fall down. Destroy the stonewall to the right, go right,
    and fly up, above the duck in the next room. From the
    plattform above, fly down and destroy the next stonewall
    to the right. But be careful so that you donīt fly under
    the arrows, in case you do, you have to fly around to get
    above them again. Continue right where the stonewall was,
    and here are tow other stonewalls, one going down, and
    one continuing right. Destroy the stonewall which is
    leading down (the floor), and fly down, and right. Donīt
    fall, because there are those arrows again. Destroy the
    next stonewall to the right, and fly up and hit the blue
    switch above. Now fly back to the place where the way
    split in two, where there was both a way down and a way
    continuing to the right. Take the right way this time
    and continue on. When you see a blue laser barrier below,
    and some arrows, fly down here, and to the right (only fly
    through the first arrows!). Continue right and fall down.
    Then continue left as far as possible (be careful with
    the bombs on your way) til that you reach a room with
    spikes in the roof and in the floor. Fly up here, and
    into the next room to the left. First walk over to the
    left as far as possible (the floor breaks behind you),
    so that you reach another room to the left. Hit the blue
    switch here, and go back to the room with the breaking
    floors. Fly to the middle of the room and fall down in
    the middle, so that you can reach the item below (try to
    land above the item, on the stone wall covering it). If
    you get it, you will get the YELLOW CHAOS EMERALD. If you
    have gotten all other emeralds so far, your maximum ring
    units goes up to 99!! :) After taking this item, fall
    down through the arrows, and go left, and then up. Continue
    left where there was a blue laser barrier. Contniue that
    way, and you will see a plattform with two down-poining
    arrows. Step on this plattform, and you will be teleported
    to the next part.
    
    Part 2
    
    In this area, go down in the beginning, and destroy the
    stonefloor. Fall down into the room below, but be careful,
    because the floor breaks, and there are spikes below. Go
    left here, and you will see a hole in the floor. Down there,
    you will find TELEPORT DEVICE. Now go up again to the room
    with the spikes, and fly up and right and destroy the
    stonewall up here. Stand where the stonewall was, and use
    your remote robot. Steer it up in the narrow passage to
    the up/left, and also across the rolling floor. Be careful
    as you let it fly over the rolling floor, so that it
    doesnīt touch the ground. You could of course let it walk
    on the rolling floor, but that takes forver before it is
    out on the other side. Try to make it fly over, even though
    it could be a bit dificult. On the other side, let it fly
    down, and right. Be careful here, because there are some
    machines in the roof, sending blue beams from time to time.
    Donīt let the remote robot touch these beams, if it does,
    then the robot will return to Tails. Let the robot fly to
    the right as possible, then down, into the hole with an
    arrow (right of the blue laser barrier). Let it fall down
    and hit the blue switch. Return the robot to Tails, and
    continue that way, and down. When you are standing on a
    stonefloor with cannons shooting at you, fly over the
    cannons to the left side, and destroy the two small
    stone blocks in the floor to the very left. Use the
    remote robot in the narrow passage, and let it hit the
    switch next to the blue laser barrier. Return the robot
    to Tails, let Tails fly back, and destroy the stone
    floor, and continue down where the blue laser barrier
    was. Continue left and destroy the next stone wall to
    the left, and continue down. Destroy the stone floor
    below, and continue down (be careful with the cannons
    here!). Hit the blue switch down here, and continue the
    way to the right. Destroy all stonewalls on your way and
    exit to the right.
    
    Part 3
    
    It is boss-time. But the boss is not a hard one when you
    know how to beat him. You are being trapped in a room
    without any exit. But this is the way to do it. Use the
    remote bomb to destroy the small stone wall in the wall on
    the right side (press the fire button another time in the
    very moment when the bomb is next to the stone wall. To get
    rid of the second stone-block, you need to throw in a
    remote bomb and let it detonate against the other block.
    This could be a bit tricky since there are spikes on the
    floor, and the floor is rolling, and laser beams coming
    from the roof. But when you have succeeded, then use the
    remote robot, and put it inside the narrow passage (Tails
    is invincible now, so donīt worry about him). Now guide
    the remote robot up (finding the way is not very
    difficult), and let it fly up over the arrows, donīt let
    it fall down. Let it fly up and around the stone wall, and
    then up, so that it is standing left to the brown stone
    block. Now push the stoneblock down on the chicken-boss,
    and the boss is beaten. Hit the blue switch, and return
    the robot to Tails. Now an exit has opened in the left
    wall. Exit that way. Now, the Battle Fortress raises
    from the sea. Return back home to heal up. By now your
    password should look like this:
    
    AFA7
    AA2A
    51A6
    6D14
    
    Equip the Rocket Booter and the proton torpedo to the
    Sea-fox. Then select "ready". Now, you can go to the first
    are in the Battle Fortress.
    
    BATTLE FORTRESS (outside)
    Part 1
    
    This is a shoot-em-up level. But the easiest and safest way
    is to fly at top speed as high as possible, and fire off
    torpedos as often as possible. By doing it this way, the
    chance is very good that you wonīt get hit a single time.
    Simply fly through this level to the right.
    
    Part 2
    
    In this part, you simply need to reach the top, but be
    careful so that you donīt get too much hit by the robo-ducks
    shooting at you. It is quite a long distance up to the top,
    but there is an end of this level, I promise. When you reach
    the top, Tails will enter the fortress on the inside
    automatically.
    
    BATTLE FORTRESS (iside)
    
    Part 1
    
    Start walking to the right. As you go right, you will see
    a left-going walkway, with spikes on the roof. Start flying,
    and fly between the spikes and the floor, and don't stop
    before you have reached the other side. Now you will see a
    hole. Here, let your remote robot fly over, and into the
    narrow passage on the other side to pick up the final
    item, the WRENCH. When you have taken it, go back home,
    and equip it, along with the triple bomb, the remote robot
    and the remote bomb. By now your password should look
    like this:
    
    ADE7
    AA2A
    51A6
    6D12
    
    Now it is time for the showdown...When you are back in the
    fortress, go first to the hole, where you let the remote
    robot fly over and get the wrench. Fall down this time. As
    you fall down, you will see a blue barrier to the right,
    which you can't pass yet. At the bottom, head left (destroy
    the stoneblocks). Walk left on the moving walkway as
    quickly as possible, and destroy the stoneblocks to the
    left. Time this part well, so that the robo-duck doesn't
    shoot you in the very moment as you destroy the blocks.
    Fly up and right. As you walk on the next moving walkway,
    be careful to not fall down through the hole with arrows
    pointing down (if you fall down, you need to walk around
    again). Fly over the hole, and hit the blue switch. Now
    fall down in the hole with arrows pointing down, and go
    back to the place where you saw the blue barrier. It
    is gone now, so go up there and go down in the first
    small hole. Quickly bomb the robo-duck which is aiming
    for you. To the right, you will see another small hole,
    leading down. use your remote robot, and steer it into
    the hole and as far away as possible. Eventually, you
    will find another switch. Hit it, and return the robot
    to Tails. When this is done, continue right, fly between
    the spikes in the roof, and the floor, and fly up.
    Continue on your way, and you will reach a place with
    several moving walkways. Go down, then right, then up,
    then left. Don't fall through the hole with arrows
    pointing down. Continue left through the next room
    (be careful with the spikes on the floor) and destroy
    the stonewall to the left with your remote bomb (let it
    detonate as it is next to the wall). Continue left and
    exit at the top.
    
    Part 2
    
    Go right in the beginning till that you see a narrow
    passage in the roof. Use your remote robot. In the end
    of the passage, you will find a blue switch, which turns
    off the blue barrier in the beginning. Return the robot
    to Tails, and go back where the barrier was. Fly upwards,
    three walkways, and go right, where you can see a
    stonewall (it is well camouflaged, but there is a way).
    Be careful now, you must not fall down through the hole
    (if you do so, you have to start from the beginning
    again). Fly over the hole and destroy the stoneblocks
    to the down/right. the next room is a tricky one. First,
    fly up, and *fly* down in the next hole, with arrows
    pointing down. If you fall down, you will get damaged
    by the spikes on the bottom. Find the way up and right.
    If you fall down in the middle hole in the room, you have
    to start all over again. Continue this way, without
    falling through any holes with arrows. Fly over to the
    left side, destroy the stone blocks. Now *fly* (don't
    fall) down through the hole with arrows (you will see
    a beam barrier to the right here). Go right after going
    through the hole. Here is a narrow passage. You must
    use your remote robot, but this time, it is more
    complicated. You must let the robot start flying, before
    putting it in the passage (it can't walk on it). As
    you steer it inside, you will see blue beams coming out
    from the roof. If the remote robot touches these, the
    robot will return to Tails. Move carefully the robot
    through this passage without touching the beams. In the
    end of the passage, you will find another blue switch.
    Hit it, and return the robot to Tails. If you now look
    below, you will see another stonewall, and a machine
    inside, shaped as a half circle. Fly down, destroy the
    stoneblocks with your remote bomb, and use the wrench on
    the machine (Tails looks somehow very cute when he is
    using the wrench :) ). If you did it correctly, a little
    detail has changed on the machine. Now fly up to the
    right, then up and left, and to the place where you saw
    the blue barrier. Destroy the stoneblocks in your way.
    Don't enter the next room. Instead, use the remote robot,
    let it fly, and steer it up to the narrow passage in the
    roof. Again, you will find a blue switch. Hit it, and
    return the robot to Tails. Fly upwards, then right, where
    the barrier was. Then continue up in the middle to exit.
    
    Part 3a.
    
    It is boss-time, and the boss is the same green duck as you
    met at Polly Mt. 1, but this time he is stronger. He flies
    around at high speed. The best place to stand, IMHO, is on
    the middle platform, to the right. When the boss flies up or
    down to the left or right of you, throw a bomb at him. When
    you see that he shoots a yellow/red fire beam over the
    high platforms, jump down on the floor. When he has shot
    over the middle platforms, jump up again (he shoots again,
    over the floor). Repeat this over and over again, till that
    he goes down (it takes 10 hits). Fly upwards. Now it is time
    for the final boss...
    
    Part 3b.
    
    The final boss, at last...Don't ask me what this boss is.
    Some kind of robo-duck I presume, but I don't know what
    species it belongs to. In any case, he throws bombs at you,
    and if you get too close to him, he will grab you and throw
    you away. When the fight begins, start throwing bombs at
    him (you don't need to aim for the head). It is enough
    that the flames from the bomb touches the boss, to call it
    a hit, so you can actually throw on a quite long distance.
    After a while, he will "duck" (get the joke...?) and will
    throw out bombs in various directions. The best thing to
    do in this moment is to fly as high as you can, and stay
    exactly over the boss. You can not hit him in this moment.
    After this, he walks from one side to another, start flying
    again (you probably need to land first to get your fly
    energy back), and drop bombs from above. He is not throwing
    any bombs now, so that makes it much easier. After 15 hits,
    he is history. As you fight this boss, keep in mind that
    it is better to get hit by a bomb, than being grabbed and
    thrown away. A bomb takes two ring units, while being
    grabbed and thrown takes four.
    
    And that's it!! :) Tails' long adventure is finally over.
    A very very funny and cuuuuuuute ending is waiting for you.
    Screen-shots from the ending? Should I spoil what happens?
    No, I can't do that. :) You have to check it out yourself. :)
    But a part is already spoiled...when you have seen the
    ending, you'll see what I mean... :)
    
    THE END
