Game Over
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Should you lose in battle, you will be given a chance to retry in exchange for a specific amount of rings. So be sure to set some rings aside for those particularly difficult boss fights later on in the game.

POW Moves
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
POW moves are special attacks that are carried out by successfully inputting the commands displayed onscreen. If done correctly, the move does maximum damage, otherwise the move will miss completely, wasting your turn. Some POW moves involve more than one character to perform, wherein all participating characters must have the designated amount of PP.

Team POW moves often involve more complex command inputs, but does much more damage compared to solo POW Moves.

Chapter 01: Hostile Reception

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Green Hill Zone
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When you regain control after some brief tutorials, tap the arrow icon at the bottom left corner of the touch screen. Explore the options in there and read through the documentations to familiarize yourself with the rules of this game. When you've seen enough, collect all the rings you can get.

Take EGG #1 near the loop. These eggs will hatch into Chaos, which in turn grant special abilities and enhancements to the character they are bonded to. Next, open the treasure northwest from the man for a HEALTH SEED.

Side Mission: The Tired Old Woodsman
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Talk to the old man and agree to help him. Approach the pile of wood nearby then tap the action button to start chopping. Go back to the old man when you're done. You will be rewarded with a POW CANDY and 50 XP.
____________________________________

Continue to the dock, step on the switch to retrieve the raft, and ride it across the lake. You will then engage in your very first battle -- against an Enraged Armadillo. There will be a brief battle tutorial before the fight, so don't worry. Defeat that enemy to proceed. Head south to trigger a short story event. Amy joins the party afterwards.

When you regain control, turn back a bit to grab the rings and EGG #2. Move along south until you encounter a sentry drone. Catch it and destroy it. Onwards to a chest with PRUNE JUICE / HEALTH SEED. When you reach a fork, go east and explore a bit just to open up the map.

You will see another man there, but you won't be able to accomplish his request right now since you must have 4 characters for that. Anyway, hop up the steps to the top of the elevated platform in the middle for a chest with HEALTH SEED / POW CANDY. Next, climb the southwest platform. Dash along the slide to reach EGG #3 at the upper platform.

Go around the top then down to the right side to reach the southmost elevated area. Climb up there and step on the spring to get to the top. Open the treasure chest for a BOXING GLOVES. Put that on now. Jump back down and make your way to the bridge south of the area (marked with a star).

Save your game. Collect the nearby treasure containing HEALTH SEED / POW CANDY and approach the bridge for a boss fight.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Boss: Marauder Scout
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

This battle shouldn't be that much of problem if your characters are at level 2 or 3. You're most probably not used to doing Power Moves yet, so just stick to using regular attacks. Or you can also practice on how to do the Power Moves properly if you like, but I don't advise this. Use those Heath Seeds to heal if you're low on HP.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

After the battle, cross the bridge towards Central City.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Central City
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Start off by picking up all the rings you can find -- you should have 24 of them once you finish your hunt. Head to the northeast corner of the area, some ways to the right of Tails' Workshop. EGG #1 is hidden somewhere there next to a fire hydrant. Enter the structure marked with a star on the map.

Talk to Tails inside. Go on and prolong the conversation by avoiding the main topic. It's always good to learn about other things. Save your game and leave the building when you're done chatting. Defeat 2 Sentry Drones and 1 Swat Bot. Go back inside the workshop to recover and save again.

Remember the cat (Rogue) who refuses to let you through earlier? Well, go talk to her now. She will then lead you to the GUN HQ. Chapter complete.
