is an Action RPG Spin-Off
adventure game from the vast Sonic the Hedgehog
franchise, released for the Sega Game Gear
in 1995. It is one of three spinoff games that the fox cub recieved, the other two being Tails Sky Patrol
, which was also on the Game Gear, and Tails and the Music Maker
, which was for the Sega Edutainment
System, the Sega Pico
While taking a nap outside his workshop, Tails is woken by an explosion. Battle Kukku Army has invaded the island in order to find the Chaos Emeralds, and it's up to Tails to stop them.
This title is different from other games in the Sonic series in that the emphasis is on visiting and revisiting different stages in a similar vein to Clash At Demonhead
. Also, unlike previous titles, Tails actually reaps benefits from collecting just one
chaos emerald (an increase in HP and Flight stamina).
The Japanese manual says this game takes place before Tails first met Sonic
. The western manuals say it takes place after Sonic and Tails' last adventure and Tails is just on vacation. Of course, Sega has chosen to pretty much Retcon

was released, so the Japanese manual is more likely canon.
Has a comic book tie-in in Sonic Universe

Tails Adventure features the following tropes:
