- General Moves -
------------------------------------------------------------------
Left or Right:
 Walk in that direction. Your character will gain speed the more you hold down
that direction, and depending on the terrain.

U:
 Taunt. Serves no real purpose. When running, pressing up can get a character
out of the spin.

D: Duck.
 Duck. Your character can do this to prepare for Spin Dash or just to avoid a
projectile.

Run+D: Spin
 Your character will roll into a ball. You can roll into enemies this way to
defeat them. You lose a good deal of speed while spinning instead of running.

SR+D: Spin
 Your character will roll into a ball. You can roll into enemies this way to
defeat them. You lose a good deal of speed while spinning instead of running.

A: Jump
 Your character's normal jump. Hold A to go high, or tap it to go only a short
distance up. The Height of your jump is determined by how long you press A. You
jump on enemies to destroy them.

A+A: Air Attack/Fly
 Your character's air attack/fly move. Some characters have an attack when you
do this, the others have a fly move.

A+B: Downward Attack
 Most characters have a downward attack. This move will cause your character
to lose all momentum, and go straight down with an attack.

B: Normal Attack
 Your character will attack directly in front of them. Attacking while running
(not illusions) will cause them to lose all their speed.

SR+B: Dash Attack
 Your character will attack while maintaining their speed. Some characters will
lose a small ammount of speed when they do this.

D+B: Ground Attack
 Same as the normal attack.

D+A: Spin Dash
 Hold down and press A multiple times. Your character will run/spin in place,
gathering speed. When you release Down, your character will shoot forward in a
ball.

Ramp+R:
 Tricks. There are 4 different tricks a character can do, and are done by
pushing a direction and R as you go off of a Ramp, Rail, or Spring.

------------------------------------------------------------------
- Bonus Stages -
------------------------------------------------------------------
 Fans of Sonic CD may regognize the 3d format of the bonus stage. The controls
are very similar.

Up: Go forward
 Your character will go forward. Longer you hold it, faster you'll go.

Down: Brake
 Your character will skid to a halt.

Left/Right: Turn
 Your character will turn in that direction.

A: Jump

A+A: Shield (When no Enemy is Nearby)
 A blue shield will spin around sonic once. Can deflect attacks. Doesn't really
work all that well.

A+A: Homing attack (When Enemy is Nearby)
 Sonic will home in on the nearby enemy, most likely destroying it. Useful for
annoying bouncing enemies.

A+F+F: Air Dash
 Sonic-Specific move. Sonic will dash in the air a short distance. Useful for
getting over small obstacles or getting a bit of a speed boost when you have
lost your speed completely.

A+B: Bounce
 Sonic will pause for a second and then spin downward quickly. Useful only for
enemies that are right below you.

attacking an enemy from the side.

 Sonic will slide for a bit with an aura around his foot. He doesn't lose much
speed with this move. After a second, he'll be running again.

Ramp+R&U: Upward Grab
 Sonic will jump upwards, his hand outstretched. You can attack with this.

Ramp+R&Ba: Backwards Somersault
 Sonic will Somersault, but backwards in the air. This causes you to lose ALL
of the speed you had going forward, becuase you changed directions.

Ramp+R&F: Tornado Attack
 Sonic will spin around in a tornado, damaging whatever he rams in to. Sonic
will only spin for a short time, however.

Ramp+R&D: Mega Bounce
 Like the Bounce, except done as a trick. Sonic will bounce when he hits the
ground.

 Sonic has a special Rail Trick. Jump right before the end of the rail and
he'll do a flip. You can trick normally after this.

------------------------------------------------------------------
- Cream -
------------------------------------------------------------------
A+A: Fly
 Keep pressing A to keep flying. Cream can only fly for a certain ammount of
time however, and then she'll gradually fall.

A+B: Cheese Attack
 Cream will point ahead of her, and Cheese will auto-attack an enemy in front
of you. Cheese also homes in on enemies. This works on bosses.

 Cheese will spin around Cream once going forward. Useful for close attacks or
as a quick shield.

B: Cheese Attack
 Cream will point ahead of her, and Cheese will auto-attack an enemy in front
of you. Cheese also homes in on enemies. This works on bosses.

U: Eat Ice Cream
 Cream will take out some Ice Cream and try to hide it from Cheese. Ha ha, nice
pun, Sonic Team.

SR+B: Cheese Spin
 Cream will hop up and Cheese will spin around her multiple times. She loses no
speed when she does this, so you can do it repeatedly for protection.

Ramp+R&U: Double-Jump
 Cream will enthusiastically jump straight up.

Ramp+R&Ba: Backward Butt Stomp
 Cream will ram backwards. Keep in mind you will lose all speed by doing this.

Ramp+R&F: Forward Spin
 Cream will spin around and go forwards. She'll also gradually go down thanks
to gravity during this.

time however, and then he'll gradually fall.

ball, however.

Ramp+R&D: Skydive
 Tails will spread himself out and dive downwards. Tails won't bounce.

enemy. Tails can also fly longer than Cream.

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

------------------------------------------------------------------
A+A: Glide
 Knuckles will spread himself out and glide. Knux can glide in either direction
and change directions, but keep in mind he'll slowly float downwards.

A+B: Downward Spin Punch
 Knuckles will dive downwards and spin with his fist out, fire spinning around
him. Keep in mind you'll lose all momentum.

B: Double Punch
 Knuckles will do a quick one-two punch forwards. He'll also move forward
slightly when he does this, so make sure not do use this when on the edge of a
cliff.

U: Practice Punching
 Knuckles will start punching constantly in place as long as you hold Up. This
taunt CAN damage enemies if they walk into your punches.

SR+B: Punch Dive
 Knuckles will dive forwards, his fist outstretched, spinning with flames
around him. This is like the Downward Spin Punch, but he does it forward and
doesn't lose much momentum with this attack.

Ramp+R&U: Uppercut
 Knuckles will do his Fire Uppercut move from Sonic Advance 1, gaining some
good air.

Ramp+R&Ba: Backwards Elbow
 Knuckles will ram backwards, his elbow out. An unpleasant suprise to anyone
behind him. Keep in mind you will lose all momentum when you use this.

Ramp+R&F: Speed Glide 
 Knuckles will glide, but he will move faster and go down faster.

Ramp+R&D: Mega Dive
 Same as the Downward Spin Punch, but a trick. Knuckles won't bounce.

Misc:
 Knuckles' Taunt (Up) can hurt enemies. Knuckles' Ramp+R&F (Speed Glide) also
causes him to roll into a ball when he hits the ground. Knuckles can also climb
walls by gliding to them.

------------------------------------------------------------------
- Amy -
------------------------------------------------------------------
A+A: Hammer Spin Forward
 Amy will spin her hammer completely around her; only really attacks forward,
though.

A+B: Hammer Spin Down
 Amy will spin her hammer around her horizontaly, and go downward. She'll
bounce when she hits the ground.

B: Hammer Attack
 Amy will swing downward with her Hammer.

U: Yawn, then Jump up and Down
 Amy will yawn, feel embarassed, and then start jumping up and down giddily.
No, I don't understand it either.

SR+B: Faceplant
 Amy will do her classic Faceplant from Sonic Advance 1, but won't lose much
speed when she does it. She'll also get up again and continue running.

Ramp+R&: Upward Grab
 Like Sonic's upward grab, Amy will jump upwards with one hand out.

Ramp+R&Ba: Backwards Somersault
 Amy will pull a move from Sonic and somersault backwards in the air. Keep in
mind you will lose all momentum when you do this.

Ramp+R&F: Heart Spin
 Amy will spin around with hearts around her, much like Sonic's Tornado attack.

Ramp+R&D: Mega Hammer Spin Down
 Same as the Hammer Spin Down, but a trick. Amy will bounce when she hits the
ground.

Misc:
 Amy's D+A has the same use as a normal Spin Dash, but she runs in place
instead. She turns into a ball like normal when released. Amy also has a
special rail trick. Press A right at the end and she does a cartwheel in mid-
air. You can trick normally after this.

------------------------------------------------------------------
- Super Sonic -
------------------------------------------------------------------
 Super Sonic, since he's in space, obeys a different control then anyone else.

Left/Right/Up/Down: Move
 Super Sonic will move in whatever direction you press.

A/B: Speed Up
 Super Sonic will gain a quick burst of speed in whatever direction you press.
If you don't press any direction, he'll go right. You can use this to ram
objects.
