Sand Ocean is the third stage of the Dark Story and it's the second stage played as Dr. Eggman in Sonic Adventure 2. This stage takes place in the desert.

After releasing Shadow, and mistaking him for Sonic, Shadow proves himself by defeating a military guard, Hot Shot. Afterwards, Shadow leaves and state for Eggman to bring more Chaos Emeralds if he wants his help. Therefore, Eggman decides to head back to his base. He encounters and tries to steal the Master Emerald along the way, mistaking it for a Chaos Emerald. Knuckles stops him, but accidentally destroys the Master Emerald, ruining Eggman's plans. Eggman, who's frustrated, leaves and continues on to the location of his base.

[edit] Gameplay

This stage takes place in a desert, where Eggman's base is at a nearby location. This stage has a huge focus on platforming as he must carefully jump along the moving blocks and avoid falling in the sand. You will instantly lose a life if you fall into the sand, as the machine Eggman is in will sink immediately. Throughout the stage, Eggman will have to shoot the dynamite packs on the pillars, which will cause them to fall, allowing Eggman to use them as platforms to progress. The main enemies Eggman must deal with once more, are the GUN forces. The Goal Ring appears at the end, when he reaches the entrance to his base.

[edit] Upgrade

The upgrade for Eggman in this stage is the Mystic Melody, which allows access to secret areas. It's required to complete Eggman's Mission 3 stages, in which he must locate the hidden Chao. The Jet Engine from the Lost Colony stage is required to reach this upgrade, which is located on a platform to the right of the first rotating platform.
