    Furious after several attempts to annihilate the blue hedgehog, Dr. Robotnik (AKA Eggman) was hard at work struggling to come up with a new plan. After a little while, he finally came up with an idea. An elaborate machine labeled the Maxidrive was created, and it was capable of massive amounts of devasting destruction. It was no secret on what the first target was: South Island. The first blast was successful as Green Hill was absolutely devasted and mostly devoid of life. Sonic returned just minutes after the energy blast, and he was quick to notice what happened. Despite the successful use of the Maxidrive, Dr. Robotnik knew if he wanted to annihilate the rest of Sonic's home, he would need the Chaos Emeralds. Loads of badniks were sent out to stop anyone who dared to try and obtain the multi-colored gemstones. However, those badniks weren't counting on the fact that Sonic is already out to find the emeralds and turn badniks' heads everywhere. Go, Sonic! Retrieve the lost Chaos Emeralds, restore peace to the lands you explore, and take down that nefarious doctor's schemes!
