The supersonic hero Sonic the Hedgehog arrives on his new plane, the Tornado, on West Side Island, where he meets his new friend Miles “Tails” Prower, a little fox who is interested in the plane. Despite his shyness, Tails loves to fix and build machines, so he is immediately interested in the Tornado. Thanks to that, Sonic and Tails begin a friendship on this basis. Soon, the evil Dr. Robotnik arrives on West Side Island and kidnaps the animals, putting them in robots to find the Chaos Emeralds and build his ultimate weapon – the space station Death Egg. Sonic, this time with the help of Tails, once again faces the villain in battle.
After destroying Dr. Robotnik’s main base on West Side Island in the Metropolis Zone, the villain activates a huge aircraft and flees the scene into the sky over the island. Using a modified Tornado piloted by Tails, Sonic manages to sneak aboard the Wing Fortress Zone (unfortunately, the Tornado and Tails were shot down, so Sonic went on his own). There, Sonic made his way into the control room and destroyed the ship’s control center. Using the rocket hidden in the flying fortress, Robotnik tries to escape to the Death Egg prototype station in space, but Sonic clings to the rocket and follows Robotnik to the Death Egg. On the station the hero fights the doctor’s new robot Mecha Sonic as well as Death Egg Bot. After defeating Robotnik and escaping from the Death Egg, Sonic returns to Tails and his animal friends using his Super Sonic form, which he obtained thanks to seven Chaos Emeralds collected earlier.
