Shadow the Hedgehog, Shadow the Hedgehog

Prison Island is a Stage in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is located on the G.U.N. base, Prison Island, which previously appeared in Sonic Adventure 2. Prison Island is one of the third Stages, being reached by completing the Hero mission of Digital Circuit, the Normal mission of Glyphic Canyon or the Dark mission of Lethal Highway.

Description

Prison Island in this game is what remains of the island that was partially destroyed in Sonic Adventure 2. Dr. Eggman's bomb caused toxic waste to flood the rivers in the area, and plant life has grown on many of the structures.

Story

Shadow the Hedgehog uses Chaos Control to teleport to the remains of Prison Island in search of another Chaos Emerald. He is then treated to some flashbacks of his cell on the island, raising yet more questions about his past. He very quickly runs into Doom's Eye, who gives Shadow the usual goal of destroying the human military presence in the area. Meanwhile, Charmy Bee (on behalf of Vector) asks Shadow to help him look for five top secret disks. The Normal path sends Shadow straight to the Goal Ring near the end of the stage.

Gameplay

Weapons

The following weapons can be found in Prison Island:

Secret Key locations

  1. The first Secret Key can be found in the Wooden Container right in front of the first Jump Panel.
  2. During the first Air Saucer segment, the player must take the ramp on the left to reach the upper path. The Key can be found in a locked Case just ahead, which is opened by defeating all nearby enemies.
  3. Following the third Save Point, in the area with two Gun Beetles and several Black Arms, the Key can be found on a platform to the left within a Wooden Container.
  4. Past the fourth Save Point, the player will go down another river of waste. There will be a large platform to the right of the river; the Key is underneath a large panel there.
  5. The final Key can be found after the sixth Save Point. The player must ride the Air Saucer all the way down the river until they come across two Grind Rails. The Key is located on the one on the right.

The Secret Door is located just past the third Save Point, with two Tank Cannons being found inside.

Expert Mode

In Prison Island's Expert Mode, in the area where the original Goal Ring was, defeat the Black Arms and then bounce up. From there, use the Wide Spring to bounce high, and then use the Homing Attack on the Gun Beetle and then Light Dash across the newly formed rings. Later on in the stage, the player will have to take a ride on an Air Saucer that will take them to a platform with robots. Once there, the player must time their jump and bounce off the two Gun Beetles to get to the other Air Saucer.

Trivia

  • This is one of the few stages where co-op play is impossible- both Charmy and Doom's Eye are unplayable as they fly and don't attack.
  • This stage also appeared in Sonic Adventure 2, as Shadow mentions that he was captured here.
  • If the player has Shadow stand still for a couple of minutes, he will ask aloud whether the two hedgehogs are somehow related.
  • Prison Island shares the same main theme as Black Comet.
  • At the Save Point after the fourth top secret disk, Doom's Eye tells Shadow to use it to go back, regardless of the current mission.
