Sonic Rush Adventure – Sega – Ds

 After  some long years of unspoken understanding that if a Sonic game is going to be rubbish they would put “Adventure” in the name, whack a few jet-skis in it or make half of it 3D, Sonic Team has betrayed us all with  Sonic Rush’s sequel – a damn fine DS game that does all of the above and still gives you more! So where did it all go right?

Sonic Rush Adventure is the brilliant sequel to Sonic Rush. It tells the tale of Sonic and Tails – his sidekick – being washed up on an island that they must help save from the evil pirate named Whisker.

This is a lot different than Sonic Rush but not in a bad way. In fact, unlike many games, where the extra missions and unlockables ruin the fun, they actually create more of it. As well as the usual missions like ‘complete the boss within the time limit’ you can also search around the amazingly large ocean for hidden island bonus rounds or Johnny, a speed demon bent on not being beaten. only when you have raced him and won can you get any of the chaos emeralds you need to complete the game.

The adventure mode is very simple, and the bosses can be switched to be easy or normal difficulty. I personally think that it maybe is all too easy.  But this is Ok because it is countered by the really hard missions that you unlock near the end of the game. Getting the most out of Sonic’s sprawling, complicated levels was always tricky because, certainly on the first visit, you often missed things due to slow reactions. But with Tails on the hunt for lots of materials, there’s often good cause to return to levels you’ve already finished, and they keep on giving – for instance, you may have missed falling into a minecart and wizzing round a dark, underground maze the first time round!

The graphics are awesome here – you really see the difference between this game and the previous Sonics. When you run around the Ghost Pendulum boss to escape it’s attacks and see every angle of it, it just shows how much work was put into the making of this game.



The world of Sonic Rush Adventure is made up of small islands. When you set sail with any vehicle, the islands that you can sail from will have an orange dot. Most Hidden Islands won’t have an orange dot, but Hidden Island 16 does. You can use any of the four vehicles to explore but they have different ranges and can traverse different areas. Once you’ve gone to an island, you can revisit it at any time by going to the Y-Menu and selecting “Sea Chart.”

I have put together a full map of all locations and emerald races for your reference. Please click on it to enlarge as much as you want:


HOW TO BEAT THOSE BOSSES: The bosses are easy once you know how to beat them. Remember to collect as many rings before they attack you, or you’ll die the first time your hit.  here’s a short guide on how to do just that.

Ghost Rex:

* Run left and bright constantly until he drops his head, then smash it in. * When he smashes the ground in and you fall, don’t worry. After the fall do the same thing, but beware – his neck will be longer.* Be prepared for when it charges from the side – just attack it’s head again. Ghost Pendulum:

* All you have to do in this boss is to hit the pendulums so they smash the boss’ head. The blue one is the lightest and usually only needs one push, whilst the Yellow one may need two, and the largte red one needs three pushes.


The pendulums all grow spikes at one point. these will kill you if you touch them.

* The boss’ base often drops off, sending out shockwaves that can kill you.

* A random spikey bug sometimes (but not always) appears. it you stand on it, it will kill you.

Ghost Krakken:

* To kill this boss, you will need to hit the glowing green tentacle as many times as possible.

* Dodge the tentacles that don’t grow green – if you can’t do this, hitting them on the top also works.

* When it sqirts three pools of ink, do not get caught up in them, as a second afterwards it squashes these pools.

* When the Krakken pulls you underwater, do not fear – you will rise back up before you drown. Just concentrate on the tentacles.

Ghost Pirate:

* To beat the Ghost Pirate, just dodge it’s sord and fire beams until it’s back’s turned. then smash it’s red glowing stomache out. it will fly the the crow’s nest, which you can reach by swinging on the ropes . when up there continue attacking it. But the pirate will follow you.

* If you hit the pirate enough times, it will fall to  pile of bones for a while.

* Continue doing this until the stomache begins to float about aimlessly – hit it when it comes towards you and the pirate dies.

Ghost Whale:

To destroy this boss just wait until it tries to eat you and the iceberg you begin on, and jump into it’s mouth. You’ll end up inside the whale.

* When inside the whale, run along until you reach a red button, hit it and the whale gets hurt and squirts you out. Do this repeatedly, ut beware of;

* Falling stalegmites;

* moving bombs (you can use these as steps if you don’t touch their front);

* Small bombs – these reset the timer inside the whale;

* Small fish that jump at you.

Ghost Condor:

To kill this boss simply run forwards, dodging red bombs, but jumping on green ones. this allow you to get high enough to hit the boss.

* After hitting ther boss, try and land on the platforms on eirther side of it. this means you have more of a chance to hit it again as you’ll be closer.

* When you are on the platforms for a while, the boss fires missiles at you.

* the platforms sometimes fall to the ground and grow spikes – dodge this

* towards defeating it, the boss will fall to earth, and runs at you. To stop being hit by this,  stay in the middle wqhilst he;s waiting and zip to one siode when he;s halfway through charging at you.

Whisker And Johnny:

At the and of the Pirate Island levels, Whisker and Johnny team up to stop Sonic. To stop them;

* Focus on stopping Johnny first. when he bows his head, he is about to launch himself at you. it is a good idea to hit him then.

* Whisker is slightly harder. when he raises his arms, he is about to breath fire. try and dodge that. When he jumps in the air, you should jump too, as he will send out killer shockwaves when he lands.

* Look out for when Whisker throws johnny or blasts his rocket arms at you – you can only dodge these attacks.

* A blade will slice through the platforms one by one starting with the bottom. always be one platform ahead.

Ghost Titan:

This boss is the most complex and needs the most concentration.

*To complete it, just dodge it’s attacks until it destroys the forcefeild around the cannon that will be situated to one side of you. after stopping that attacking you as well, jump in and wait until the two circles on the top screen align. Then press A. you will be blasted at the Titan. The more aim you had when firing the more impact it will have on the boss.

But the Titan isn’t the last boss -there is yet another at the very end of the game! To unlock it, you must find every Sol and Chaos Emerald. These can be obtained by completing some special missions and beating Johnny a few times. I won’t say any more though…

Overall, I know this is definitely the best sonic game EVER! The grahics are brilliant, the gameplay is short but fun, and the missions are longlasting!



If you like this game, you should try out Sonic Rush.



  1. Hey
    Where r all the hidden islands
    I’ve been looking EVERYWHERE and i’m still missing some

    • you need to look harder

      ps there is 1 in the bottom right corner

    • look in the bottom right corner

  2. Calm down!
    Just take a peek at the little map on this post! Sorry about the size, but It was the only way I could fit it on site. If you want to enlarge it, just click on it! Hope you get the info you need!

  3. would this be the final boss or another? after which area is this?
    Thanks for reading this, I hope I can help!!!

  4. Ok Its Eggman The Bounus Boss
    And I REALLY am stuck
    Please help its at the volcano its near the end of the story
    Please Help

  5. The final boss is called Deep Core.
    When you have 14 emeralds, the final stage will appear – on Southern Island. It is set up a bit like a vertical scrolling shooter. You hit the R button to switch between Sonic and Blaze. Remember; you’ll deplete one ring a second, so you must keep collecting more!
    Blaze can shoot, and Sonic has a sword with which to whack enemies back at the boss. Use sonic when he his fireballs and dragon shots, but Blaze for everything else. But when his health is almost all gone, he’ll disapear and re-emerge with almost all his health back! He can only do this three times, though, before he dies! HOORAH! you’ve just completed the real ending!

    • Where is hidden island 6 & 8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Thanks Alot That Really Helps

  7. how many hidden islands r there
    i cant find the 6th and 7th sol emeralds

    • 16 hidden islands

  8. There are 16 hidden islands. The map (that you may want to enlarge) on this post shows this. To get the sol emeralds, complete the missions given to you by blaze. You may need to do something before you can attempt these missions.

  9. please help me, in pirate island act 2 after the second or third dolphin i just fall off into oblivion how do I move on

  10. You really have to just keep at it. there is a platform, and you have to get the height just right to reach it when you jump off. I am writing a Sonic Rush Adventure walkthrough – if you need any help it’s on it’s way!

  11. i have tried jumping off the dolphin onto that platform but it wont let me jump off and if i ever manage it where do you go then ?

  12. I remember getting stuck in that place to. The frustrating thing is that I know that it’s so close to the boss fight with Whisker! I think it’s realy down to practice. Good Luck and KEEP TRYING!

  13. Has Debbie got passed that level yet? It’s took me a week to get through it! If you haven’t got passed it what you need to do it follow the coins! Follow them up over that ledge then as soon as you’re passed the ledge start making your way down (whilst still on the dolphin)!

  14. Wow, Amanda – I just tried that and it actually works!! Thanks loads!

  15. How do I find Pirate island. I’ve been looking where it’s shown on your map and I still can’t find it!!

  16. Pirate Island is in the top-right corner of the map, underneath the Big Swell.

  17. I got Sonic Rush Adventure and within a week I have unlocked all the islands (apart from hidden island 15) and done all the missions but the Reach the goal within the time limit and Defeat the enemies. I am doing the tiem attacks as well. I BEAT DEEP CORE ON MY SECOND TRY! 😀 Your guide is helpful 🙂

    • Well within 2 days i had defeated EVERY BOSS even eggman
      whom u verse after collecting all sol emeralds & chaos Emralds

  18. Wow! That is seriously cool! I hope you complete those last few missions and I am glad I helped! Well done!

  19. Oh, by the way, a tip for beating Johnny’s races:
    Save up all your boost for the end so you can speed to the finish, and always go through Johnny’s yellow rings that he leaves behind him.

  20. I can’t get Sol emerald 4, and I’ve unlocked all the islands. The little koala dude won’t give me the mission for some reason. Do I HAVE to beat all the time attacks and unlock all the stupid movies and sound tracks? I just wanna get the last emerald and beat the game. Please help if you can. Thanks.

    • the last emerald will only send you to eggman as super sonc AND super blaze

  21. chek this out

  22. help me please! have been stuck on the bad guy wi the canons for ages!? can get him to start blowing up but cannont survive all that pink fire and white screen! is there somewhere I should go?

    • get to the middle & keep jumpin as high as possible
