Boss: EggDrone Primus(Player: Fang)

You fight this boss on a rounded part of the forest.

The EggDrone fires a machine gun from his arm, fires rockets to the sky that will fall to the floor(you have to move away from the targets on the floor), and will fire seeker missiles.

Since this is the first boss, the strategy to defeat him is very easy. Your Dual Machine-Guns will do almost no damage to the robot's armor, but the Revolver will do a decent ammount of damage to the enemy. You have to keep firing his chest with the Revolver until you deplete his life gauge.

There's not much more to it. The only difficulty this boss battle should present is that you'll have to fire him while at the same time avoid the enemy's shots. To do this, you have to Strafe by pressing the L or the R button. This will allow you to move while facing forward. Use the strafing, and use the Strafe Jump(a jump to the side, by pressing the A Button while strafing) to avoid the attacks while you fire your Revolver.

Just keep firing and avoiding attacks until you deplete the EggDrone's life gauge

Fang says "Useless junk, served up hot!" and blows the smoke out of his Revolver as the points accumulate and your rank is given.
Meanwhile, at the entrance of a big tower...

Shadow ran toward the entrance of the big tower that was in front of the forest. When he got to it, he noticed the tower had no entrance door. He looked at the wall closely, and he noticed the wall had an inscription written. He blowed the dust out of it, and he could see it clearly. The inscription said:

Prove yourself as the ultimate existance;
and our fortress will rest your soul.
Prove yourself regular,
and our cellar will be your grave.

And, there was a hand-shaped hole on the wall, under the inscription. Shadow was about to put his hand in the hole, but he stopped himself. He looked up, then down, and then he looked to his right, at the forest. He nodded, and ran to his right, toward the forest.
Before the stage, you will enter the Black Market. There, Omochao will welcome you.

"Hello, Shadow, and welcome to the Black Market. I can see you have the Chaos Spear equipped, and have nothing unequipped. You can acquire new Chaos Powers with your rings. Here, let me show you the available list of acquirable Powers" Omochao says.


Chaos Shield - 100 rings.
Chaos Earthquake - 200 rings.
Chaos Flight - 300 rings.
Chaos Control - 1000 rings.

If you have collected 100 or more rings during the previous stage(it had 169 rings) you will be able to buy the Chaos Shield. If not, you have to collect more rings on this one, or go to the Stage Select mode to gather more. If you gathered 100 rings, you should buy the Chaos Shield.

"You have selected the Chaos Shield. Do you want to buy this Power?" Omochao says. Accept, and Omochao will give you a purple energy ball. Shadow will grab it, and his eyes will turn purple and will light up. Shadow shouts, and just after that his eyes turn normal again.

"You have just acquired the Chaos Shield. This Power will allow you to create a shield of energy that will protect you from enemy attacks up to a point. Press the Z Button to scroll between your Chaos Powers. Once you have the Chaos Shield activated, hold the Y Button to activate the shield, and release it to deactive the shield. That's all!" Omochao says.

Since there's not anything else you can buy, move on to the next stage...
Stage 3: Jungle Speeds(Player: Shadow)

This stage takes place in the forest, but it looks different from Fang's stage. Fang's stage took place in the middle of the deep forest, with only trees around, while Shadow's stage takes place on a more opened part of the forest, more jungle like, with less trees, and more waterfalls and rivers. As you progress through the stage, though, you'll be getting into deeper parts of the jungle.

This stage has the ussual things a Shadow stage has: Loops, straight-forwarded paths with enemies to the side, running-down paths with enemies shooting or dashing from ahead, corckscrews, high-speed vines resembling rails for you to pratice your balance skills, vines that will make you steer the skies ala Green Forest/White Jungle, trees for you to use your Triangle Dash, springs to bounce-off, and gaps with enemies to use as footsteps with your homing attack.

The straight-forwarded paths and the running down paths have plenty of EggDrones around trying to bring you down. Since the constant shooting may turn out to be a problem, you may want to use your Chaos Powers. The Y Button fires the Power you have activated, and the Z Button scrolls between your available powers. You can use your Chaos Spear to bring down the enemies while you keep running, or, you can use the Chaos Shield, if you have bought it, to protect yourself from the enemy shots. The Chaos Shield will be able to protect you from these shots, but it may not be able to protect stronger shots.

Remember the Chaos Powers will deplete a gauge every time you use them. This gauge represents Shadow's energy. Is this gauge empties, you won't be able to use your Chaos Powers until it fills up again(it fills up as time passes).

After three loops, one corckrscrew, and one big jump, you'll reach the Goal Ring.

Shadow says "Hmph!" and crosses his arms as the points accumulate and your rank is given.

Meanwhile, in Paris...

The camera was facing a huge mansion in the middle of downtown Paris. In front of it, there was a big tree. The camera faced the top of the tree, where a purple figure was sitting, with it's eyes closed. The camera zoomed in a little, and showed this figure was none other than the purple chameleon, Espio. The camera did a very quick zoom toward Espio's eye, which oppened, showing Espio's bright, deep, yellow eye. With this, the screen changed to a black background, and this text was being written, in purple letters, and after it finished writing, Espio said what was written on the background, which was:


With this, the screen showed different pictures, and Espio was the narrator. Espio narrated the following, as different screens appeared:

"This is Espio the Chameleon, excecuting Operation "The Sculpture's Eye".(This sentence shows the Blue Chaos Emerald). My objective of gathering the blue Chaos Emerald has brought me to Paris, capital of France, and home of lots of rich, and succesful professionals.(This sentence shows the huge mansion showed before from different angles). One of these professionals is Monsieur Ludwig Riverí, who's a very succesful and multi-millonaire Artist who has a Glass Eye, due to a fight in his juvenille times.(This sentence showed Mr. Riverí, who's a lizard who wears a Glass Eye and a paintbrush). Riverí's life is based on his success. He loves painting, and is excellent at it, but what he loves more is money and fame. He simply can't live with it.(These sentences shows different of Riverí's paintings, such as lizards, safe zones, money, and jewels) A few months ago, he had a meeting with the president of France himself, where the president bought a couple of Riverí's pictures. As a payment, Ludwig got... the blue Chaos Emerald.(This sentence shows the president handing the Chaos Emerald to Riverí). Ever since, Ludwig considerated this Emerald his most precious achievement, so, he built a sculpture of himself, and, he used the Chaos Emerald to represent his Glass Eye. He now keeps this big sculpture at a very well-protected safe zone that's located somewhere on the inside of his huge mansion.(This sentence shows the sculpture, with the Chaos Emeralds as the Glass Eye). My mission? Infiltrate Riverí's huge mansion, deal with anyone or anything that gets in my way, and steal the Chaos Emerald from the sculpture. My reward? The blue and first Chaos Emerald".(These last sentences show Espio sitting on the top of the tree, thinking.)

After he finished speaking, Espio jumped down the tree, and ran toward the mansion.
