Sonic Slows Down!
Alone in his egg-shaped headquarters, the diabolical Dr. Robotnik paced and pondered.
"There has to be a way to defeat that pesky Sonic The Hedgehog! No matter what I try, he always manages to outrun my traps! Hmm... wait a minute. He outruns my traps. He uses his fantastic speed to defeat my minions. What if I take his speed away?"
Dr. Robotnik created a pair of harmless-looking boots that would slow the running speed of any creature that wears them. Then Dr. Robotnik commanded one of his robots to sneak into Sonic's home and swap his normal sneakers with the boots.
The next morning, Sonic put on the boots without noticing anything was different... until he tried to dash out the door. It was if his feet were stuck to the ground—he could barely run! He tried to pull the boots off, but no matter how he struggled, they wouldn't come off. Then through the window, he heard Dr. Robotnik's evil laughter.
"How do you like my new invention, Sonic? The only thing that can deactivate those boots is Chaos Emerald power, and the Chaos Emeralds are mine! The only way to get them is to find your way though my Super Labyrinth, and you can't stay there long. Without your famous speed, there's now way you can catch me!"
Sonic thought quickly. "These boots keep my feet from moving fast, but they won't slow down my Super Spin Dash! All right, Robotnik. I'm coming after you!"

Chapter 1, Dr. Eggman's Scheme
"Eeeeek!! I hate revolting hedgehog! He's always, always getting in my way, and I won't let that slide! He won't get away with this!!"
The evil genius scientist Dr. Eggman plans for world domination even today, feeling somewhat cranky.
"Hmmm... I'm ticked off by his speed. He always defeats me with that speed... Hm? Speed...? That's right, it's the speed! Daahahaha! Just watch me, Sonic! This time, victory is mine!!"
As usual, he was being a weird evil genius scientist, acting angry and delighted all by himself...
Chapter 2, Sonic the Hedgehog's Mistake
On that day, Sonic woke up in the afternoon. Tails has gone out who knows how many days ago, saying something about a self-interested journey.
"Sometimes it's okay to be all on your own, too."
While he was having that thought in mind, Sonic rose up and put on his favorite boots, but...
"Huh, what the?"
His feet feel heavier than usual... Having a bad feeling about this, when Sonic carefully looked at the boots... It turned out that Eggman's mark was on the boots!
Sonic has totally fallen into Eggman's evil trick!!
Chapter 3, Dr. Eggman's Triumphant Look
"Daahahaha! Sonic, I got the Chaos Emeralds of this island!!"
Dr. Eggman's triumphant voice has echoed throughout South Island. The evil genius scientist had once again come to the island where Sonic lives!!
"Sonic, how does it feel wearing those Dr. Eggman Deluxe Speed Down Boots!? You see, those boots were made with the power of the Chaos Emeralds!! In order to take them off, you need the power of the Chaos Emeralds!!"
Dr. Eggman wore a triumphant look as he spewed out hints nonstop, not even listening to what he was saying!!
Chapter 4, Adventure in the Great Labyrinth
Sonic tried to run to reach Eggman, but he cannot run or jump because of his boots...
Then, the great labyrinth's fortress, Eggmanland, has begun construction... with roaring sounds resounding throughout South Island!!
But Sonic will never give up!!
"Even if I can't run or jump, I can use my rolling attack!! Don't think you've won from a little thing like that!!"
Sonic headed into the great labyrinth to recover the Chaos Emeralds.
