The story is very simplistic. You start off as Tails, traversing through a maze of platforms, and vines, trying to find a way out of the nightmare. Once you are close to the boss, Tails Doll, the music cuts out, and the doll is shown laying there.
It comes alive once you come close enough, and attacks. Once you do beat it, Tails wakes up, and the Tails Doll is shown to appear behind him. Tails makes the following statement once he knows this, and the screen is black.
"Ugh, you again?!" and a fight scene is heard.
