Marsha & Gunner (マーシャ·ガンナー Māsha· gan'nā) is a platform game that features Marsha the Fox and Gunner the Sackperson, who are both on a mission to save their friends and defeat the Collector.




Marsha & Gunner

The story begins with the duo sleeping under the tree. Tails was with them too (but was kidnapped (or foxnapped) by the Collector). They soon discover that their friends have all been kidnapped by the Collector and they go after him. After going through each zone, they must fight Runner, who has been talked into being evil and fighting her brother and best friend. They finally reach Collector's base, in where they must fight Dragon Slayer, Anti-Gunner and Anti-Marsha. Finally, they defeat the Collector and save their friends.

However, they must also collect the Chaos Emeralds as well. If they do, it triggers a "good future," where runner lives. In the "bad future," Runner dies.

Single Player

The player finishes each level, generally moving from left to right. Along the way, rings are collected and Badniks are defeated. Star posts serve as checkpoints, where if the player were to lose a life then he or she would return to one.At the begining of Act 3, Marsha, Gunner or both confronts Runner.

Special Stages track Marsha/Gunner/Both from behind while he/she/they runs through a (semi-) three-dimensional half-pipe course filled with rings and bombs. A certain amount of rings must be collected to pass through two checkpoints and then obtain the emerald itself. If the player runs into one of the many bombs (increasing in number as the emeralds are captured) he will lose a set amount of rings, varying depending on the stage. The order of stages is fixed in rising difficulty, and either/both cannot enter the next stage without passing the previous. Whether the player is able to obtain the emerald or not, Marsha/Gunner/Both is transported back to the last star post he hit in the zone when the special stage is over and has zero rings.

From the options menu, players can select to either play as Marsha alone, Gunner alone or Marsha and Gunner. During the Marsha and Gunner story, you can play as one and then switch to the other.

Two Player

In two player versus mode, players compete against each other - either as Marsha or Gunner - in a split-screen race through three regular zones and one special stage. Regular zones include Frozen Hill, BINGO Freeway and Sky Road, while the Special Stage remains the same as in single player. In the regular levels, players are ranked in five areas (score, time, rings held at the end of the level, total rings collected, and number of item boxes broken), with the player scoring highest in the most levels winning the round, while in the Special Stage, players compete to obtain the most rings.

Special Stages

In Gunner and Marsha, there are 7 Special Stages. When either has collected at least 50 rings and either one hits a Star Post, either one can go to a special stage.

Special Stages track the player from behind while he runs through a three-dimensional half-pipe course filled with rings and bombs. A set amount of rings must be collected to pass through three checkpoints and eventually obtain the emerald itself. The order of stages is fixed in rising difficulty, and either cannot enter the next stage without passing the previous. Whether the player is able to obtain the emerald or not, the one who was in the Special Stage is transported back to the last lamp post he/she hit in the zone when the special stage is over and has zero rings.
