Town Mission 18: The Test of Heart is the eighteenth and final Town Mission in Silver's story in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).


The mission takes place in the Forest of Soleanna, and is the third of the three precursory trials which Silver must pass in order to access Kingdom Valley, following The Test of Friendship and The Test of Memory. Having conquered his second trial, a priest gives Silver a test of his heart's strength. He must defeat a large number of Badniks without any available objects to use psychokinesis on.


The basic objective of this Town Mission is to defeat all of the enemies. Fortunately, there is no time limit to do so. There are no objects in the arena for the player to pick up and throw with psychokinesis, although the robots' projectiles can be used. Catching the enemies' missiles and firing them back is strongly recommended, as the player does not have to get into close range to do so. Conserving missiles to use against enemies that don't fire suitable ammunition is a good idea. Several groups of enemies contain leaders (such as Egg Chasers) that should be destroyed in order to take down the others quickly. When every robot has been vanquished, the Town Mission will be cleared and the player may enter Kingdom Valley.
