Chao Adventure 2

Chao Adventure is an independent mini game that you can play on your VMU in Sonic Adventure 1. Sonic Adventure 2 has the sequel, Chao Adventure 2! It allows your Chao to go on its very own adventure, sometimes refered to as talking the Chao for a walk.

Accessing The Game

To let your Chao go for a walk (an adventure), you must take it to the big VMU model where it will be gently thrown inside of it. Select a VMU with at least 128 blocks of free space and it will save Chao Adventure 2 onto it. Once this is done, when you take out your VMU, press sleep, then press menu until you get to the ace of spades logo. Now press A. Chao Adventure 2 will start!

A Sonic Adventure 2 save, the Garden Data, and the Chao Adventure 2 minigame file will take up all the space in the VMU! Also, make sure your VMU has batteries!

The Adventure

Chao Adventure 2 is different to the minigame in Sonic Adventure 1 as it is more of an 'Adventure' and has actual stories that you can change the result of with your decisions.
This is also the only place on the Dreamcast that you will be able to obtain special seeds/fruits. This is done by finishing an adventure, choosing a correct treasure chest when you find them, or when you meet a character from the main game. You can store 8 items that you can then be take back to the Chao Garden to be given to your Chao.

Luck and Intelligence

In Sonic Adventure 2, the Chao have been given two extra skills: Luck and Intelligence. On the Dreamcast these can only be raised with Chao Adventure 2! Increase Intelligence by collecting Smart Fruit in the mini-game, and then taking it to the garden to feed your Chao. Increase Luck by guessing the correct Treasure Chests when your Chao stumbles across them. Luck goes up by 100 when you choose the correct one, and decreases by 100 if you choose the wrong one.

Fights

On your adventure, you may encounter a fight with a Bully Chao. A marker will quickly move along a number of dark and clear circular icons; fight off the Chao by pressing the 'A' button when the selector lands on a clear icon. The first Chao to hit the other Chao three times wins the fight! If you win, you carry on with the adventure. If you lose, the Bully Chao takes one of your items from you.

Rests

Your Chao may get distracted or fall asleep during his walk. You can pet, scold, or feed it a snack and it will continue his journey. I usually pet it!

Slots

I'm not really sure what the point of this game is. There is not too much skill involved with it, and you can only win snacks for your Chao which do not boost it's stats at all.
