Suit of Armor!!!
Resembling a computer and television monitor, the Shield Monitor returns in Crusade v0.9! This item is designed after it's appearances in the classic Sonic the Hedgehog 1 & 2 games.
Unlike the typical television set that might lose signal, this iconic monitor is nothing that will disappoint - it always has its benefits. The expression on Sonic's face should hint to us that we should stay tuned to find out what the rewards are for picking up this item.
Known for having a timid personality, Tails will feel safe and secured when he picks up the Shield Monitor. Once you destroy a Shield Monitor, you will be protected from taking damage or knockback. Tails shouldn't get too comfortable though, as the barrier will eventually disappear. Perhaps he should consider other permanent solutions to get over his fears...
The Shield Monitor doesn't discriminate the holder, no matter how strong or weak they are. Everyone will be equally protected from harm. However, the time limit is not the only con of this item. The amount of damage the shield absorbs also determines how long you will remain safe. So how many Evil Ryu kicks will it take to get inside?
Those who like to roam freely around the stage will be pleased to know that the shield remains on the base of the character's body frame. No matter how fast you go or where you go, you will stay protected, even from projectiles! Nothing beats mobile security, isn't that right, Shadow?
Do you want to be a bit more tactical with the Shield Monitor? Don't worry, you can pick up the item over your head to be more strategic. You can throw it above yourself as well as below you when you're ready. In Team Battle, you can throw the item left or right to your partner so that the shield is activated on them instead. However, when holding the item, be careful not to hold on it for too long in case an enemy hits the item before you use it. If an enemy hit it while you are holding it, they will possess the shield. Think fast, Snivy!Tune in every Friday for more updates!
