Robotnik returns!

All was peaceful and quiet on South Island after Sonic the Hedgehog crushed the plans of the diabolical Dr. Ivo Robotnik for the first time. Far too quiet, in fact, for a hyper young hedgehog who craves action. So Sonic left South Island in search of other adventures.

When he returned, Sonic found no sign of his friends anywhere. Confused, he went back to his digs to think, and found a note waiting for him. It was from Miles (or "Tails" as he is called), a two-tailed fox who is one of Sonic's closest friends:

Dear Sonic:

"Robotnik is back, and he's captured all of the animals on the island! He is hiding me in a place called the Crystal Egg. In order to free me, you have to find and bring the six Chaos Emeralds.

"Robotnik made me write this. He says he's waiting for you, and he's created six really nasty robots in order to 'get rid of you once and for all.' I don't know what he has planned, but Sonic, please be careful!

Sincerely, Tails"

There was no time to waste! The letter fluttered to the floor as Sonic dashed off to find the Chaos Emeralds and save his friends.

To: Sonic

All our buddies from South Island have been kidnapped by Dr. Eggman.
I am captured in a place called "CRYSTAL EGG," which is where I'm writing this letter.
Though it seems that you can't come here if you don't have the 6 Chaos Emeralds located somewhere on South Island.
Dr. Eggman created six fearful robots that are awaiting your arrival, so be careful...

From: Miles

What will become of Tails and the island's buddies?
Where are the six Chaos Emeralds located?
As soon as he finished reading the letter, Sonic started running...
