Start the game by the Master Emerald. Look for the missing shards of the red chaos emerald in this anchient shrine.
This is a fairly small level that has plenty of hiding locations, and pit falls. Be careful.

Journey to a peaceful chao garden. You'll be looking for Chaos Drives for the chao, in each one is a piece of the blue
chaos emerald. Be careful, Omochao is out to get you in swarms in this level.

The oldest level from the Bluehog games is back again, hiding the shards of the yellow chaos emerald within its hills.
Just watch out for the fish hiding in the waterfalls. Other then that, be careful, this level is big.

Its a race not just for the shards of the purple chaos emerald, but also for air in this maze. The water level slowly rises
over time, filling the whole level up in five minutes. Once under you'll need to find air bubbles to avoid drowning.

This time you'll be looking around the ruins of the original hidden palace. Careful, as the green chaos emerald shards are
scattered everywhere in this gigantic level. You'll need to avoid the pitfalls and consult the map to clear this place.

The temerture is rising rapidly in this lava filled level. Grab the fire shield to traverse the lava and flames without harm.
You'll have to search high and low in this gigantice level. Those white emeralds shards could be anywhere, even in the lava.

The final level. Somehow the cyan chaos emerald shards have gotten stuck in the walls, floors, and ceilings. Electric floors
and convyer belts dot this level. When an emerald is lodged into the ceiling over your head, just reverse gravity.

The intruder who shattered the Chaos Emeralds finally has revealed his face. Strike now and finsh him. A word of warning to
the wise, this level only comes in the Hard mode variety.
