Story

Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails are flying in Tails' airplane, searching for a mysterious energy signal that appeared on Tails' radar. They decide to follow this mysterious energy signal, and head out over the ocean. As they travel farther and farther across the ocean, a sudden storm approaches and blows them far off course. Tails loses control of the plane in the storm, and the two heroes crash land over one of the islands.

Miles Prower ), better known by his nickname Tails ), is a video game character in the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games, comics, and animated cartoons released by Sega. ...


An energetic raccoon named Marine finds them, and tells them that they have landed on Southern Island. She explains to them about her dreams of building a ship to explore the world's oceans, as she wanted to do this ever since she was shipwrecked on Southern Island. Tails offers to help rebuild her ship after she crashes it, since he's a mechanical genius and great at fixing things. He does this in hoping that she could also help him and Sonic find their way home.


Sonic sets off to explore the island for Materials to build a ship, and Tails starts to work on Marine's ship. Sonic returns, and discovers the smaller, faster ships that Tails and Marine had made. Marine, Sonic, and Tails try out the ships, and Sonic has a blast while racing across the seas. He soon encounters various islands and a sneaky band of pirates on their search for a treasure, lead by the notorious Captain Whisker. These pirates have treasure and loot in their sights, and they won't let anyone - not even Sonic the Hedgehog - stop them or get in their way. The blue hedgehog may be fast, and the pirates haven't slowed him down yet, they aim to knock Sonic out of their race for jewels and treasure.


Unexpectedly, as Sonic races through this chaotic world, Blaze appears. Blaze reveals to them that they've accidentally traveled to her dimension during the storm. It turns out she is after Whisker and decides to go along with Sonic, Tails, and Marine in order to find answers. Throughout their adventure, the heroes will travel through various islands and places, in search of clues and reasons about what's happening and if Sonic and Tails can ever find a way to return back home. Blaze the Cat ) is a fictional character in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, created by Sonic Team and owned by Sega. ...


Gameplay

As Sonic (and later, Blaze), you will begin each adventure from Windmill Village on Southern Island. Bring up the Sea Chart to plot your route using the stylus. After plotting the desired route, you'll begin to race to one of the seven main islands using one of the four ships. During that time, you can collect rings, perform tricks off ramps, and by doing tricks, fill up your Boost Gauge. When you use your Boost Gauge, your ship speeds up and becomes temporarily invincible until the Boost Gauge runs out.


When you arrive at one of the seven main islands, your objective is to get to the goal at the end of the level. Sonic Rush Adventure uses the trick system, first introduced in Sonic Advance 2, in which you can perform aerial tricks by pressing the A, B and R-button in mid-air. By doing tricks or defeating enemies, your Tension Gauge will fill up, allowing you to perform a Super Boost until it runs out. The Tension Gauge will decrease over time or whenever you take damage. There are two acts per every level, and after completing them, you'll find a 3D boss battle awaiting for you. Sonic Advance 2 ) is a side-scrolling platform game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, developed by Dimps and published by THQ for the Game Boy Advance. ...


One of your main 3D missions is to gather up Materials so that Tails can build new ships. You can visit Tails at Marine's house in the center of Southern Island and ask him what Materials you need. At Marine's house, you can save your game or play multiplayer battles using DS Download Play. You can also play using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, where you can race against other people online using Sonic or Blaze, or Ring Battles where the you collect as many as you can spread throughout the map. The Nintendo DS, (sometimes abbreviated NDS or DS), is a dual-screen handheld game console developed and manufactured by Nintendo, released in 2004. ... Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection logo Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection is an online service run by Nintendo to facilitate free Internet play in compatible Nintendo DS and Wii games. ...


By collecting Materials, you can get Tails to make one of the four ships, the Wave Cyclone (waterbike), Ocean Tornado (sailboat), Aqua Blast (hovercraft) and the Deep Typhoon (submarine). Tails will accompany you throughout submarine ventues, manning the ship so you can blast underwater enemies. There are many small islands called Hidden Islands, that would either contribute to the storyline, or have one act for extra Material. Among other events, Sonic can find Johnny and end up racing for one of the Chaos Emeralds. Blaze has her own set of jewels to collect, the Sol Emeralds, and she can earn them by completing a series of special missions. Collecting all fourteen Emeralds will unlock the final stage. The Chaos Emeralds, as depicted in Sonic Advance from a side view. ...
