    How to Beat Boss at Stage 7 More Easily

    If you are having a hard time beating the boss in stage 7, you might like this advice. Be knuckles, with your partner as tails. Then go into the boss zone. When he spins rapidly press A twice and knuckles will glide. Glide over to the wall and you can climb. Be careful - if the boss jumps near you he can still hurt you!

    Altar Emerald Boss Tips

    Ring in Zone 7 with Eggman's symbol.

    1) To beat this boss more easily, I would reccomend using Knuckles and Tails so you can double-jump on his cockpit without using hands or detonators to get him.

    2) Okay, you've got Knuckles and Tails so here's the next step: when the hands come down to get you, dodge them and when they come up, jump on top of them and jump on Eggman. Then the detonators come, ignore them and double-jump. Sometimes these continue, repeat the steps until he explodes (6 times until explosion). (Don't forget to collect the Chaos Emeralds!)

    Partner System Explanation

    In This Game You Can Choose A Partner To Follow You Like In The Old Genesis Sonic Games.
    However The Partner You Choose Does Have a Varity Of Effects On Your Main Character.
    For Example If You Press The B Button On The Ground As Sonic While Tails Is Your Partner You will Do a Full Stop Slide (little Distance + You Stop (Lose All Speed) ).
    It's Useless This Way But If You Have Knuckles As Your Partner And Do The Same Thing Sonic Won't Stop He Will Slide A Good distance And a Yellow Wave Comes In Front Of Him :) .
    So On With Other Characters You Can Get A Lot Of Combos And B Moves .
    However It's Not Just the B Moves It's Also The Press A While Your in The Air That Also Changes Depending On Your Partner :
    Example :
    Tails + Sonic : Fly Like in Sonic 3,Sonic advance 2 and such.
    Tails + Knuckles : Will Glide Almost Like Knuckles But With Faster Landing And More Speed + Can't Control Direction + Can Be Used As An Attack (Also Tails Puts On Boxing Gloves While Doing This :) ) .
    Also There Are The Hold R Moves Which also Depend On Your Partner These Are Performed By Holding The R Button Until Your Partner goes into Ball Shape and is in your Main Character's Hand Then When You Release the R Button your Characters Will Perform a Move Depending On Your Partner This Can Be Also Done While In The Air ( Release R while in Air ) To Get a Different Move :) .
    Example :
    Sonic + Tails + On Ground = Sonic Jumps On Tails's Back And Then Gets Bounced HIGH Into The Air :) (a Very Useful Move :) ) .
    Sonic + Tails + In Air = Tails Grabs Sonic And You Can Control Tail's Flying Ability .
    Keep In Mind That To Have The Best Fun Of The Game You Should Use These Abilities As Much As You Can :) .
