Shadow the Hedgehog Flash is an online Flash game released in 2005 to promote Shadow the Hedgehog. The game was featured on the Shadow the Hedgehog websites before they were closed.



Act 1

The player controls Shadow the Hedgehog in a 2D Westopolis. The objective is to reach the Goal Ring at the end of the level whilst collecting Rings, platforming and defeating enemies. There are various Springs and platforms the player can use to avoid bottomless pits and navigate the level. Containers also appear, but only as obstacles that Shadow has to jump over. The player encounters enemies from the Shadow the Hedgehog game, such as GUN Soldiers and Black Warriors. Enemies can be defeated by performing a Spin Jump above them, after which they drop a weapon that can be picked up and used against other enemies. GUN Soldiers drop Pistols and Sub-Machine Guns, while Black Warriors drop Light Shots and Flash Shots. All of the weapons have unlimited ammunition.

As well as access to the game, the main menu offers several other options, such as updates for Shadow the Hedgehog, a leaderboard for high scores and sending an e-postcard.

Act 2

The player controls Shadow as he rides the Dark Rider down the highway of Westopolis. The goal is to reach the end, while dodging cars and shooting down Black Hawks with a Sub-Machine Gun. Shadow can move up, down, left or right as the Dark Rider automatically propels forward on the road. Further in the level, the player battles the Black Tank.
