The third Emerald was said to be inside of some kind of cyberspace database. I went into this digital realm, destroyed the core program, and got the Emerald. Now, there are four left, and I must find them!


Shadow the Hedgehog, Shadow the Hedgehog

Digital Circuit is one of the second Stages in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is a cyberspace world within the United Federation's mainframe. As with most other stages in Shadow the Hedgehog, Digital Circuit has multiple missions, from which the player must choose one to progress with the game.

Description

Story

Following his gruesome annihilation of the GUN Soldiers in Westopolis and acquisition of two Chaos Emeralds, Shadow follows Black Doom's next set of orders, which are to infiltrate the United Federation's mainframe. Having been warped into the mainframe by Black Doom with Chaos Control, Shadow arrives in Digital Circuit. After adjusting to the sensations of cyberspace, Shadow makes his way forward and eventually encounters Doom's Eye. Through it, Black Doom orders Shadow to find and delete the core program that the controls the data flow of the humans' information highway system, which will plunge the world into chaos. After making his way further into Digital Circuit however, Shadow comes across Rouge the Bat, who explains that she is on a government assignment to track down a Chaos Emerald in the area, and offers Shadow to help look for the Emerald with her.

  • Dark: Shadow, still on the Black Arms' side, destroys the core program of the cyberspace and collects the third Chaos Emerald. In the meantime, at the White House, the President receives a phone call that informs him of a report from the Central Information Agency. According to the report, the United Federation's forces have managed to push the Black Arms out of Westopolis and suppress enemy forces in five other cities. The caller also reports that the CIA's mainframe has been compromised, which they suspect the Black Arms are behind. Responding to the call, the President informs them to tell the Commanding Generals that the United Federation will never surrender to terrorists. The President then takes a look at a picture of Sonic and Shadow on his desk and adds that mankind must now defend the peace the two hedgehogs created when they saved the earth, and that they must stand united against the Black Arms. Elsewhere, Shadow emerges from Digital Circuit via a machine in an Eggman Empire base. Upon arriving there, Shadow spots Dr. Eggman flying by in his Egg Mobile. Believing that Eggman can tell him about the Black Arms, Shadow heads out and trails Eggman to Cryptic Castle.
  • Hero: Shadow decides to team up with Rouge and gets the third Chaos Emerald. In the meantime, at the White House, the President receives a phone call that informs him of a report from the Central Information Agency. According to the report, the United Federation's forces have managed to push the Black Arms out of Westopolis and suppress enemy forces in five other cities. The caller also reports that the CIA's mainframe has been compromised, which they suspect the Black Arms are behind. Responding to the call, the President informs them to tell the Commanding Generals that the United Federation will never surrender to terrorists. The President then takes a look at a picture of Sonic and Shadow on his desk and adds that mankind must now defend the peace the two hedgehogs created when they saved the earth, and that they must stand united against the Black Arms.

The following weapons can be found in Digital Circuit:

Secret Key locations

  1. In the light speed circuit after the second Save Point, take the first path on the right to get the Key.
  2. After coming out of the second light-speed circuit, there will be four Gun Beetles. The Key is located on the lower level, below the entrance to the next light speed circuit.
  3. Just after the fourth Save Point, hang on to the light beam and ride it up to where the Key is located.
  4. After the fifth Save Point, in the with the GUN Beetles, destroy the first three, and then land on the platform near two of the robots with the Key.
  5. After the seventh Save Point, use the searchlight to go up. Once at the top, walk forward and use the Homing Attack to reach the highest green platform that will lead to the Key.

The Secret Door is left of the fourth Save Point, with there being Warp Hole behind it. By jumping into said Warp Hole, the player is teleported to secret light-speed circuit, with it serving as a shortcut to the fifth Save Point.

Expert Mode

The first thing that the player will notice in Digital Circuit's Expert Mode is that there are more firewalls in the light-speed circuit. Avoid them at all costs to keep from losing Rings. When the player reaches the area after the first Save Point and some Gun Beetles, hop on the moving blocks, Light Dash along the Rings, and use the spring to get up to the light in the next section. There are also some differences in certain sections, but if the player takes it slow, they should be able to get to the end.
