Knuckles Chaotix 2 is a sequel (term used lightly) to the rare 32X game, Knuckles Chaotix. Despite the title, the game has a similar plot structure with almost all the same levels re-imagined, from the first. The game is a platformer/puzzle game, in which your main goal is to uncover the truth of the plot.
Gameplay is very similar to the Gameplay in many of the Sonic Adventure games but then switches to 2D, similarly to the transitions one can see in Sonic Colors or Sonic Generations.Often the game relies on puzzles taking advantage of the "stuck together" gimmick. The characters can also can use firearms although they have limited ammo.
Playing as the Knuckles, The Chaotix and a handful of other unlockable characters, you must uncover the explanation for various mysterious events including the disappearance of Sonic the Hedgehog, an apocalyptic laser which supposedly hit the earth and the ascension of an island onto the surface of the ocean, over the course of a couple days. Depending on which locations you go to at what times during these days, different possible scenarios occur. The events including the death of several characters, the possible revival of one of Knuckles' ancestors, the expansion of the agency, a forming rivalry with Metal Sonic and the appearance of the Chaotix' missing member Mighty.
A detective agency that found two mysterious objects known as power rings. After one of them accidentally sticks his gum between the two rings the team ends up using them as a way to stick together, gain momentum and overall go faster. Later the team ends up finding the Starlight amusement park which strangely ascended onto the top of the water after being submerged for many years. Could the rings and the island be linked in someway.
Knuckles the Echidna
Found by the chaotix after arriving at Carnival Island. Knuckles can be selected as a fate choice that will take you through the hero story mode. Knuckles can later become playable along with the chaotix.
Heavy & Bomb
Found by Charmy after the Chaotix' arrival at the island. Heavy and bomb were created as tour guides and are found to be very annoying to everyone but Charmy. These two are meant to handicap your team if you fail at picking a partner.
Pachacamac the Echidna
Pachacamac was a part of a family of chiefs that lead the Knuckles Clan. At some point in his life, Pachacamac had a daughter who was named Tikal. Despite his wise guidance he caused almost all of the clan to be wiped out due to his greed for power. He is a suspect for the cause of the island's mysterious ascension.
An evil man constantly after powerful gems known as chaos emeralds. A rumor has started that he is behind the disappearance of Sonic the Hedgehog, and possibly the island's mysterious ascension. His goal in life after all was to built an empire in his image, cynical amusement park and all.
Mighty the Armadillo
A member of the Chaotix who went missing years ago, on a solo mission. He's remembered by all who knew him as a hero. However the mystery still remains of what happened to him.
Doctor Dimitri Finitevus
An echidna who tried to absorb the powers of the chaos emeralds to become a god 3,500 years ago. According to legend he did succeed but was banished onto an island in the middle of the ocean by Chaos, the god of destruction. Suspiciously on their journey the Chaotix run into an echidna, in perfectly normal condition who claims to have that name.
While originally starting as just an idea around very early 2015 a test level was constructed along with the porting of a few characters. At the time of this section's creation (2/2/15) the game is not far through development (if it even does see the light of day.) but a few working levels have been constructed, the partner system has yet to be implemented and a few screenshots of the early development was taken and made into a collage of sorts.
As of 4/14/15 the game is slightly farther in development. First of all the lighting has been "HEAVILY" improved on. As one can see from the screenshots the shadows are present and somewhat accurate. The Chaotix, Mighty, Knuckles and Sonic had their models already existing in the engine so porting them wasn't too difficult. Currently the the two player mechanic has been "sort of" implemented, with the playable characters being linked gameplay wise but no physical indication (no band, but band physics.) As seen from the screenshots some more levels have had their basic textures and layout implemented (specifecly Botanic Base and Speed Slider.) In addition their is also a working, experimental H.U.D showing one's time left and rings, along with the symbol of the character in control, (Although only Knuckles, Espio and Sonic have their symbol in the system as of this paragraph and the latest of the screen shots in the collage.)
Station Square, Chaotix Base; 3:45 pm, Day -1
Espio:...Hey Vector,You still have those large rings we found in the trash.
Vector: Yeah, they look powerful. Just holding onto them, makin' sure there in good hands.
Espio: Yeah right, looks like they haven't been used in years. Probably just something useless.
Vector: Probably...Hey we could use them to scare away the landlord so we have more time to pay the rent.
Espio: ...Hey Vector, can you believe Sonic's gone missing
Vector: Impossible. How could any one catch Sonic?
Espio: Beats me? Even more confusing, I also got word that Eggman shot a powerful laser at the earth 24 hours ago
Vector: That's ridiculous we would all be dead
Espio: Yeah, and that's when Sonic went missing too
Vector: Could he be dead?
Espio: I'd have expected them to have found his body by now. All of it is off, I didn't even feel an impact 24 hours ago.
Vector: Yeah, that would've caused an annoying ruckus.
Espio: Speaking of which shouldn't we go get charmy
Vector: fine (puts his gum between two power rings) let's go.
Prologue (Stage I: All |Day 0)
Vector: Activate Flight mode!
Espio: Will do (pulls lever turning the base into a sort of helicopter. In the sky Vector tries to locate charmy)
Vector: Charmy you up here!!!
Charmy: Vector, fly with me come on wee! (Flies obnoxiously around the base)
Espio: Deploying Gripping Claw
[In a tutorial for the claw minigame later on you must catch Charmy three different times]
(the sky gets dark and a tornado appears)
Vector: Ah no! Espio!
Espio: Ahead of you! (starts driving the base away)
Vector: Espio, Get me a clear shot! I think there's something in the tornado causing it.
Espio: Be careful Vector, ammo doesn't grow on trees
Vector: yeah, yeah [Vector get's a clear shot at the tornado and uses a shotgun to try and stop the cause of the tornado, shooting all the obstacles flying at them as well.]
Vector: Almost got it! (goes to reload the gun terminator style but ends up knocking out Espio instead
.) Uh oh! Charmy?
Vector: You, know how to fly this thing?
Charmy: No, sir!
Vector: Then you may want to hold onto something.
(The screen goes white)
Tutorial (Stage I.5 All|Day 0)
Isolated Island, ???; 9:30 am, Day 0
Vector: ugh...where are we?
Espio: I don't know... Some island I think...augh, my head! Vector what happened yesterday
Vector: ugh, beats me
Charmy: Or Espio more accurately!
Vector: Got no idea what that means?
Espio: looks like we should start looking around for ways off this island.
Charmy: Why don't we use those piece of trash rings Vector found the other day!
Vector: Charmy that might be a little hard. They're stuck together.
Espio: Perfect then, we can use them to stay together. Until I trust Vector again
Vector: Very funny, Now can we get moving
[A brief tutorial starts and then Stage I starts]
Isolated Island (Stage I: All|Day 0)
[Soon the ground begins to rumble as an Island mysteriously ascends onto the top of the ocean]
Espio: Woah, what was that!?
Vector: How is that even possible!?
Charmy: It's Neon!
???: Yeah I see it,the plan's begining to work. How is the hostage? What! He's escaping I'll get there now
Espio: You two hear that?
Charmy: Yeah, looks like we better get to that island.
Plaza, Carnival Island, 9:00 am, Day 1
(The Chaotix bust into the main plaza, Espio invisible,Vector in a fighting stance and Charmy holding a gun. After seeing the plaza is baron they lower their guards. )
Espio: What is this place?
Vector: An amusement park?
Espio: What kind of sick bastard holds people hostage in an amusement park?
Vector: How about one that just ascended onto land?
Charmy: This place looks amazing!
Espio: Let’s not let our guard down Charmy, we know this place isn’t safe
Vector: You’re tellin’ me! (Espio ducks as Vector punches a robot that is directly behind Espio. He then grabs the robot.) Think you could sneak up on me did ya! (Slams Robot into the ground and grabs him again.) Who are you working for!
Charmy: Vector stop, he’s just a tour guide!!!
Vector: (let's robot go, takes brochure and gives it to Charmy.)
Robot: I am Heavy, my associate Bomb and I are tour guides here at the wonderful Carnival Island!
Espio: Wait a second, if you work here, then you were created here, right?
Vector: That means somebody built you… Who is your creator!?
Heavy: Error, Hostile environment detected, information locked!
Espio: It looks like he thinks we’re threats. I don’t think he’ll tell us until, we become friendly.
Bomb: Is everything okay here Heavy? I got a call for backup.
Espio: Gentlemen, I believe we got off on the wrong foot. We’re private detectives. We were stranded here and we’re trying to figure out what’s going on with this island.
Bomb: …Error, cannot permit. Authority questionable!
Heavy: Wait Bomb I have an idea. (turns to Chaotix) We will permit your presence as long it’s under supervision!
Vector: Come again!?
Espio: Vector, let’s humor them they could have important information
Vector: Fine... Heavy, Bomb, welcome to the Chaotix detective agency. Just lay low for now okay?
Heavy + Bomb: Understood.
[Much like the original Knuckles’ Chaotix you pick your designated character, pick your partner through the claw game, and select a stage randomly (Not as randomly if you grab a item from the level earlier slowing down time. Here depending on the stage things change.) Depending on which stages are picked determines the story's events and what clues you get leading to the final confrontation.
Best Story/Ending -
(Botanic Base) Any Stage: (Stage II: Any | Day I)
(Botanic Base), Carnival Island, 10:00 am, Day 1
Vector :(Hiding Behind a corner hearing fighting sounds.) Alright Espio you go ahead, Charmy and I will stay back.
Charmy: If you need any help just call for back up
Espio: Understood (Sneaks around cloaked to find a bunch of robotic parts and Knuckles. He uncloaks himself) Huh, Knuckles?
Knuckles: Espio? You son of a Bat! Ah, man great to see you! (Goes over to him and hugs him.)
Espio: Hey,take it easy man.
Knuckles: Yeah sorry. So how did you get here!?
Espio: Well the rest of the Chaotix and I crashed onto this place and are trying to figure out what’s going on. How did you get here?
Knuckles: I wish I knew. I just blacked out for a while and woke up in a crate. Got out of the crate and all these robots came after me.
Espio: I was afraid you were going to say that.
Vector: (comes around the corner with Charmy) everything we keep finding isn’t leading us anywhere
Charmy: Vector, are you dumb! The brochure led us here!
Knuckles: Awesome! All of you are here! Aw, man I haven’t seen you guys in years! Hey if, you don’t mind me asking what ever happened to Mighty?
Espio: Well it’s kind of complicated really.
Vector: You see during an investigation, he suddenly disappeared.
Espio: Mighty’s been missing for years.
Knuckles: I see.
Espio: Are you up for some investigation?
Knuckles: Sure, I don’t have anything else to do, no way off the island either.
