4. Walkthrough

===========================================================================

Here I cover the normal mode of the game. You play through a couple of 
stages and then fight the Boss to proceed on the next area. 

NOTE: I only cover the enemies and the Length of a stage because that and
the time limit are the only Non-random things of a stage... The time limit
isn't anything to worry about in most stages so i won't list it.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
4a. Level 1
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Area 1-1

Here is where you start the game. The stage is really easy and small.
It's 9 squares from top to bottom and 15 squares from left to right. All
you have to do here is destroy 3 balloon-like enemies and find the exit.
Be sure to destroy all breakable blocks and collect the power-ups you find
and use them as you'll need them to make the game easier. Also... be sure
not to hit the exit with a bomb because a fast enemy (for now) will pop-up
out of there and you are very likely to lose at this point and the exit 
won't open till you destroy every enemy.

Area 1-2

Start here with every Power-up you have. This stage is as big as the first
one and has only 3 enemies. Only difference is that it has more blocks and
more power-ups.

Area 1-3

Same lenght as Stage 1 but 2 balloons and Pink enemy that gives you 400
points and moves slightly faster than the ballon guys. A good thing here
is that you'll find some different items besides the power-ups. This stage
isn't hard so i suggest having bomb, speed and fire on level 3 and save
the other power-ups you pick up.

Area 1-4

The stage is the same size again and you have 1 balloon enemy, a green
floating enemy that looks like a UFO. It takes 2 bombs to kill it, it
doesn't always go in the same row and gives 600 points. Another Enemy here 
is a light green colored creature that has the ability to walk over 
breakable blocks (he gives you 1000 points). He dies in one so his ability
is all you need to worry to about. Save anything you find here, there's 
really no need for any use of items here.

Area 1-5

If you saved all the other items you found and have Bomb, Speed and Fire
in level you should have a good amount of power-ups and at least 1 bomb
in storage. Here you have that pink enemy from stage 2 and the other 2
enemies from the previous stage, Plus you'll notice that the Unbreakble
blocks are arranged in a different way so be careful. Be
sure to use ALL of your power-up items before you exit. 

Bonus

The first bonus in the game and fist place to save. Here you have to 
destroy every enemy with the power-ups you're currently using and the
Invincibility you're given. You have 30 seconds to destroy all enemies
on the bottom screen and get all the items in the top screen. When you
finish the game will save and you'll proceed to the next stage.

Area 1-6

This stage is bigger than the previous five stages and packs 5 enemies.
The stage is 9 squares from top to bottom but 21 squares from left to
right. The enemies are 3 pink blobs, 1 of the pass through creature 
(green light colored enemy from area 1-4) and a new one. This one looks
like a blue colored onion whose movement patter is random so you'll 
have to lock him. He dies in one hit and will only give you 200 points.


Area 1-7

Same size as the previous. 2 blue Onions, 1 Pass-through enemy and 1
pink blob. The exit is on the top row and 4th square from left to right.

Area 1-8 

The UFO like enemies are back here and there 2 of them here. There's
also the Pass-through creature and an orange bulldozer who can pick up
and throw your bombs away. He moves very slowly in a random pattern,
dies in 2 hits and gives you 1000 points.

Area 1-9

Same size. 2 Pass-through creatures, 1 blue onion and a bulldozer. No
need to use any items here so save them.

Area 1 BOSS STAGE

Use Ctrl + F and type BOSS 1 to find it in the boss section.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
4b. Level 2
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Area 2-1

The stage has a different look from Level 1's stages and it's 19 squares 
from left to right. The breakable blocks now look like boxes with gold 
coins on the them. The enemies here are 2 pass-through creatures and 2 pink
blobs.

Area 2-2

Same size as before but and a new enemy. There are 2 pink blobs, 1 that's
pass-through and the new enemy is a golem who moves slowly, Punches a bomb 
away, dies in one hit and gives you 1500 points.

Area 2-3

The only thing to point out here is the enemies since this quite easy. 
There's 1 golem, 2 blue onions and 1 Pass-through creature.

Area 2-4

Here are 2 golems, 1 blue onion and 1 Pass through creature. There's also
a good amount of power-ups here.

Area 2-5

This area has 15 squares from left to right, it's full of blocks and you
get only 1 minute and 30 seconds so you should use the Hyper bomb A.K.A
Pass-Through bomb. Don't worry, you'll get that back if you look for it.
There's only 3 enemies here and they're all the Pass-through creatures.
Be sure to use all power-ups before you exit.

Bonus

Same as before... Take out the enemies and get the items as quickly as
possible. Here's a good trick: Drop a bomb and then start dropping bombs
(when the one you just dropped explodes) to make explosions go wherever
you go.

Area 2-6

This stage is 23 Squares from left to right. There are now 2 new enemies 
here. An sad looking orange ball and evil red fire. There's 2 of the orange
guy, 1 of the red fire and 2 pass-through creatures. The orange ball dies
in one hit and gives you 800 points and so does the red fire. The red fire
makes a small flame that it explodes a bomb if it touches it so be careful
and don't place your bombs near it.

Area 2-7

Same size as before. There are 3 golems here, 1 pass-through creature and
a new one... a pink squid that can also pass through breakable blocks and
is faster than the other guy. But like the light green guy, he dies in one
hit and gives you 1000 points.

Area 2-8

This stage is 27 squares from left to right and the usual 9 from top to
bottom. Another new enemy is here... 1 hooded figure who carries a lamp, 2
light green creatures, 2 golems and 1 red fire. The ghost dies in one hit,
only problem is you have to attack him first to stun him and then quickly 
attack him again in order to kill him, he gives you 2000 points.

Area 2-9

This stage is only 15 squares from left to right. Hyper bomb would work
well here since there are many blocks and you have only 2 minutes. The
Hyper bomb is recommended for passing this stage quickly but it's possible
to finish this stage without it. There are 2 golems, 2 Light Green guys,
1 hooded figure and 1 red fire.

Area 2 BOSS STAGE

Use Ctrl + F and type BOSS 2 to find it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
4c. Level 3
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Area 3-1

You're now on a pirate ship. The stage is 19 squares long and the barrels 
are now the breakable blocks. The enemies here are 2 Light green guys, 1 
living bomb (new enemy), 2 pink blobs. The living bomb movers around 
randomly and works like your bombs (range is level 3). It'll die in 1 hit 
but it can protect itself if it goes into exploding and he'll give you 800
points.

Area 3-2

19 squares long and nothing new. The enemies here are just 2 blue onions, 2
pink blobs and 1 living bomb.

Area 3-3

19 Squares long and the same enemies as the previous stage.

Area 3-4

19 squares long and a New enemy here... a red ball moving with a blue top.
He also has the pass-through ability, dies in 3 hits and gives only 600 
points. The other enemies here are 2 pink blobs, 1 orange ball and 1 living
bomb.

Area 3-5

15 squares long and a place for Hyper bomb. The enemies here are 3 living
bombs and 1 orange ball. Be sure to have Bomb, Speed and fire in level 8

Bonus

Same as before...kill all enemies and collect the items on the top screen,

Area 3-6

21 squares long, the enemies here are the 1 red ball, 3 light green 
creatures, 1 pink squid and the new guy: A pirate. Like the hooded figure,
you must hit him once to stun him and then attack, but you must do it 
twice to kill him. He'll give you 3000 points.

Area 3-7

19 squares long, Enemies are 1 Red ball, 2 pass through guys, 1 squid and
1 bomb

Area 3-8

The enemies here are 1 red ball, 2 bombs 1 pirate and 3 of the new guy...
a head that looks like an orange cat. He's faster than every enemy you've
seen so far (except for the one that pops out of the exit). 1 hit will 
kill him, his movement patter is random and sometimes it follows you and
he'll give you 4000 points

Area 3-9

15 squares long. Hyper Bomb is HIGHLY recommended but not needed. Enemies 
are 3 pirates, 2 bombs and 1 cat. The time here is 1 min so use a clock if
needed.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Area 4-1

You're Now in a desert area where the Non-moving cactus are the breakable
blocks. The stage is 21 squares long and has 5 enemies. There are 2 moving
cactus who move a little faster than the cat, dies in 1 hit and gives you
400 points. The others are 2 blue onions and a Medallion like enemy. It 
dies in 1 hit, gives you 1000 points and he's also quick.

Area 4-2

21 Squares long. Nothing new here and all you have are 2 moving cactus, 2
sad orange balls and 1 medallion. The only thing to worry about here is 
how the unbreakables are arranged.

Area 4-3

Same thing as before but with a new enemy. The new enemy is a flotaing
who can pass through soft blocks. You kill him the same way you kill the
pirates: Stun him, then kill him to get 2000 points. The others are 1 
Light green creature, 1 squid and 2 Cactus.

Area 4-4

Same lenght as before but this time it packs 6 enemies. 1 pass-through
jelly (the ligh green creature... i'll just call him that from now on),
1 squid, 2 Moving cactus, 1 medallion and 1 Floating head.

Area 4-5

15 squares long and it's another Hyper stage. Use the hyper bomb to get rid
of 1 Cactus, 1 Pass-through jelly, 2 pink blobs and a medallion. You have

Again... kill the enemies and get the power-ups, just like before.

23 squares long and as you can expect... new enemies. The new enemies are a
yellow ball who moves slowly and dies in 1 hit giving you 800 points, it 
can also hide by digging. The other one is a bat who's pretty equal to the
yellow ball but it only gives you 200 points and can't hide. There are 2 of
each of them, 1 blue onion and a pink blob.

You're now in a cave full of ice, Breakable blocks are the snowmen and this
stage is 25 squares long. This stage carries 3 new enemies: Blue fire, Snow
golem and 3 metal heads... he's just 1 enemy when united with the others 
though. Blue fire dies in 1 hit and gives 600 points, it's basically the

all 3 your points will be 800, 1600, 2400, in total of 4800 points and they

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
4h. Level 8
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Area 8-1

You're now in the volcano. If you have many of every items, I suggest using
them to finish the stages quickly. The stage is 31 squares long and the new
Enemies here are 2 Flame golems, 2 Orange bombs and 2 Living bombs. The 
living bomb may have been seen before, but this time its effect is that of
a hyper bomb and they die in 2 hits, so beware. The orange bomb doesn't
make any explosion, it just moves around like any enemy and dies in 2 hits,
but when you hit it the first time it screams "I'm on FIRE!" and starts 
running around like crazy. The Flame golems are different from the others 
but like the others they die in 1 single hit. The difference is that it 
doesn't punch a bomb away but instead makes fire move in a circular motion
and as you would expect it explodes bombs and obviously kills you. The 
other enemies are just 2 blue onions.

Area 8-2

1 Flame Golem, 2 blue onions, 1 living Hyper bomb, 4 orange bombs and the

4i. Level 9

Area 9-1

You're now in a castle and the breakable blocks are red shields. 3 New
enemies are in this area and one of them takes time. The new enemies are a
Mother bomb and her babies, a rook and a Knight with a lance and a shield.
The Mother bomb and babies die in 1 hit and give a huge amount of points.
The rook moves slowly, dies in 1 hit and gives you 600 points. The rook can
also make shields. The knight, as I said carries a shield which protects 
him from frontal assault so you have to hit him from behind. He dies in 4 
hits and gives you 4000 points. There are 4 rooks, 1 mother and babies, 1
knight and 1 orange ball. From now I suggest that RC bombs should be used
most stages. This stage is 31 squares long.

Area 9-2

2 Squids, 4 rooks, 1 mother bomb and babies. This stage is also 31 squares
long.

Area 9-3

Area 9-5

You guessed it... yet another hyper bomb stage. The enemies here are 1 
mother bomb with babies and 5 knights. The time limit here is 1:30 so be
sure to use a clock. I suggest using Invincible! and They hyper bombs 
Repeatedly when you're invincible. Be sure to have Bomb, Speed and Fire at
level 8.

Area 9-6

31 squares long. 2 rooks, 2 knights and 2 Mother bomb with babies. Use

crown who takes a lot of time to explode but... it's explosion is that

Well that's end of the walkthrough for normal mode. Congrats on beating
this game.

===========================================================================

5. Bosses

===========================================================================

Here is where I'll cover the boss fights.


BOSS 1

The first boss in the game. You play on both the top and bottom screen and
you can go around either of them right away. This boss starts out as a 
round, floating pile of metal trash. He'll start by dropping 2 spikey
enemies. Their slightly faster than the UFO and have a random pattern and 
they give only 200 points. When you destroy those 2 he'll drop 2 more and
continue to do that. The 3rd time it drops its enemies it will come to the
fight. He looks like a giant metal flower and attacks by throwing metal 
Spikes. He'll attack over long periods of time and whenever ot sees you.
Hit him 5 times to make him red and hit him once more to win and collect
the items.


BOSS 2

Set the RC and Line bomb (and maybe the shield) Items for use here. The 
boss doesn't appear until you destroy all 6 hands which die in 1 hit. 
Once you destroy them and go to the top screen, the boss will appear. The 
bottom screen will be sealed so you're stuck up there. The boss is a green
head with 3 orbs around it. It's weak point will shuffle around the 3 orbs
and you have to attack it while avoiding the hands. Hit him 4 times to 
make him red and then hit him again to again to kill him.

BOSS 3

The Boss here will appear right away and he is a giant red crab. He'll
Attack you by throwing his claw at you, spitting bubbles (which will 
freeze you) and he'll also Charge at you. He'll constanly move from screen
and spit bubbles to keep you on the lookout. Attack from the side or 
behind 4 times and he'll shed his Skin. He'll no be smaller, faster and 
launch more bubbles at a time. Hit him 3 more times after he shed his
skin to kill him.

BOSS 4

Here you face 2 Cactus brothers, a fat one and a skinny one with a 
sombrero. They will pass the Sombrero back and forth. The fat one will
throw spikes and the sombrero when he wears it. The skinny one will lock
out the lower area and throw 3 spikes at once. They're not that hard
however... they will die in 3 hits each. To get this battle over with
quickly just use the Invincible item and the RC bomb.

BOSS 5

Set RC bomb, a heart and Invincibility. You now face a vampire. 4
teleport spots will be placed on the bottom screen so you can get to
him (since it's the only way to get there.  All he does is summon ghosts,
throw bats and wide beams at you. Teleport to where he is and attack him.
He'll seperate into bats and move to the other screen. Continue that
until he's dead. Hit him 10 times to kill him.

BOSS 6

Just like BOSS 1, the boss here starts out as a round pile of grass. This
boss is basically powered-up version of BOSS 1. It drops 4 plants at once
and just like BOSS 1 you have to kill them and do it 3 times to get that
pile of grass to come down. The pile of grass is a giant plant like the
metal one that is BOSS 1. Get rid of the small plants go for the big guy.
Hit the Giant plant 5 times to win.

BOSS 7

As you would have guessed this boss is an upgrade to BOSS 2. The only
difference is that the hands can now attack from a distance usig some
energy attacks. Like in BOSS 2 just get rid of the hands which die
in 1 hit and then attack the big head and it's weak spots. Since you're
near the last boss I suggest you start using Invincible and RC bombs
to get rid of bosses quickly. Hit him 5 times like before to win.

BOSS 8

This one is a Metal Scorpion. He attacks the same way that BOSS 3 does
and gets hurt the same way. This boss is really easy since he dies in
only 5 hits... I find this guy easier.

BOSS 9

The Vampire's lady is the boss here. She's the same as the Vampire guy
but the only thing is that she can summon ghost faster. Equip a heart,
Invincible, RC bomb, and line bomb to make this easier. Fight her
the same way that you fought the Vampire guy: Teleport, attack and
reapeat till she's dead. Like the Vampire guy, she dies in 10 hits.


FINAL BOSS

Equip Line bomb, RC bomb, Heat, Invincible... Just equip anything you
want since it's last stage. This boss is not an updrade to any of the
other bosses. The boss looks a giant floating statue or shakkoumon if
you've seen digimon. The boss will attack by throwing it's arms at 
you and projectiles. You have to teleport to his screen and hit him 
once each time (you can only hit him once at a time). When you hit
him he'll move to the other screen. Hit him 5 times and his bottom
layer will break, here he'll learn a new attack: He'll make his arm
the row it goes on so move away from it. Hit him 3 more times to 
destroy him. When you beat him you'll see the land back to it's 
original state. 


===========================================================================

7. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

===========================================================================

Q: I bought a used copy of the game which came without the instruction
booklet and all the save slots are occupied. How do I delete a save?

A: On the file selection screen, just click the save you wish to delete 
on the touch screen and drag it to the trash can icon.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: I have beaten the game but my save file only displays 95%. Is there
any way to get 100%?

A: The percentage displayed is how far you are in the game and whenever
you load save you've already beaten, you'll still start a few stages 
before the end, thus you're not going to see 100% because you're always
starting at 95%
