    I have decided not to allow websites other than Gamefaqs (www.gamefaqs.com),
    IGN (faqs.ign.com), Gamerhelp (www.gamerhelp.com) & Gamespot (www.gamespot.com)
    to host my FAQs from now on.
    Please don't ask, because I will not grant permission.  It's just that too many
    sites don't keep their version of my FAQ up to date which makes for a lot of
    hassle in my mailbox.
    So if anyone sees this FAQ on any site other than those mentioned above, please
    let me know and I will take care of the situation, thanks.
    
    Just to make things crystal clear for some people, this FAQ is not to appear

    *NOTE* The walkthrough is now complete!  I still need to add maps to the
    earlier stages, but more importantly I need to add stats, names and
    descriptions for some enemies.  If you can help, then by all means do so, it
    helps to tell me which stage you find out the name/stats, so I can confirm them
    myself.
    
    Thanks!

                                     (B) CONTROLS
    ###############################################################################
    
    The controls for this game are as follows:
    
    Move - Drag the stylus to adjust the speed of your movement.
    
    Boost - Double-tap the top of the screen (hold the second tap if you need a
            bit more).
    
    Brake - Double-tap the bottom of the screen (hold the second tap if you need a
            bit more).
    
    Roll - Draw a quick circle to do a roll (hold afterwards to keep rolling).
           This allows you to deflect shots and also pick up any cores or items
           that are nearby.
    
    
    A,B,X,Y,L,R,dpad - Shoot (hold to lock-on, then release).
    
    Bomb - Drag the "B" on the right off your radar to a group of enemies where you
           want to use it, then release.
    
    U-Turn - Tap the "U-turn" button below the "B" on the right side of your radar.
    
    Loop - Tap the "loop" button on the left side of your radar.
    
    
    Start  - Pause.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                       (C) ITEMS
    ###############################################################################
    
    ---------
    Fuel Cell
    ---------
    
    This item looks like an atom and gives you 25 extra seconds.
    
    
    -----------
    Supply Ring
    -----------
    
    These yellow rings restore some of your shields once you fly through them.
    They fully restore your shields when not in an enemy zone.
    
    
    --------
    Missiles
    --------
    
    These can only be used by the great fox once picked up, but they allow you to
    destroy one enemy zone.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                    (D) WALKTHROUGH
    ###############################################################################
                               Bricklayer J. Gastronomy
    
    You will find the walkthrough for the entire game in the sections below, which
    will tell you how to get all 9 endings.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                (D-00A) TRAINING LVL 1
    ###############################################################################
    
    You have no timer in this stage, you just need to go through each of the rings
    once.  The rings disappear from your screen and the radar as you pass through
    them, so it's easy to find missed rings.
    
    Turn your ship right to go through the first 6 rings, then fly up and down as
    needed to pass through the next 7.  Turn left through 6 more rings and take 2
    more before going up for another.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                (D-00B) TRAINING LVL 2
    ###############################################################################
    
    This stage has you shooting 30 enemies and collecting their 30 cores.
    
    You can fly around and shoot by pressing pretty much any other button (I find L
    or R and the dpad work well).
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                (D-00C) TRAINING LVL 3
    ###############################################################################
    
    You have 5 turrets to destroy in this stage.  They don't move, but they shoot
    rings at you.  You want to lock on and fire at them from a distance, then use
    your roll to deflect their shots.  Deflecting shots in this way saves you
    energy and hassle, but also gives you a small time bonus.
    
    Rolling against these shots is a great way to get bonus time in stages that
    have them.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                (D-00D) TRAINING LVL 4
    ###############################################################################
    
    There are 15 enemies here and you have 30 seconds to beat them.  Go through any
    rings and grab the items that appear.  You also get a fuel cell for every 5
    enemies destroyed (once picked up).
    
    This is the final training stage, so after this you're onto the real game.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                        (D-01) CORNERIA - THE ADVENTURE BEGINS
    ###############################################################################
    
    Time  - 150
    Cores - 10
    Turns - 04
    
    
    Now that the game is beginning, there are 3 enemy zones and you need to draw
    your flight path to one of them.  The yellow arrows indicate how fast the
    enemies are in each zone.  So there are 2 slow zones and one normal zone here.
    
    You can use the great fox to launch fighters or missiles (it has 3), but you
    fail if it gets destroyed.  Fox is your only fighter right now, so you can draw
    a flight path for him.
    
    
    The top enemy zone (01) has 4 target enemies (blue commander ships) with
    shields and weapons both rated at 2.
    
    The middle zone (02) has 3 target enemies (flashing swarm fighters) with
    shields at 1 and weapons at 2.
    
    The faster bottom zone (03) has 3 target enemies (flashing swarm fighters) with
    shields at 1 and weapons at 2.
    
    
    You want to draw a flight path towards your chosen enemy zone and either double
    tap the screen, or press any button to bring up the large "turn confirm"
    screen.  Tap the turn button from this point to end your turn, or hit cancel
    and make changes.
    
    I recommend moving towards the top enemy zone for your first turn, then
    engaging them in your second turn.
    
    
    -------------
    Enemy Zone 01
    -------------
    
    Destroy the 4 ships as fast as you can, then use your boost and roll to get the
    cores quickly.
    
    
    -------------
    Enemy Zone 02
    -------------
    
    These three enemies are weaker than those from the previous zone, so you should
    get rid of them even faster.
    
    
    -------------
    Enemy Zone 03
    -------------
    
    This zone has the same weak swarm fighters from zone 02, but they move at
    normal speed now.  Use locked or normal shoots from a distance and boost if
    needed, then grab the cores to finish the mission.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                         (D-02) CORNERIA - REUNION WITH SLIPPY
    ###############################################################################
    
    Time  - 150
    Cores - 30
    Turns - 04
    
    
    This mission introduces missiles, supply rings and fuel cells to the map.
    Moving over a missile allows the great fox to fire that missile and destroy an
    enemy zone with it.  The supply ring refills health and the fuel cell adds 25
    seconds to your time, like always.
    
    
    Draw your first flight path to pick up the pair of missiles ahead of you.
    
    
    Now you can fire a missile with the great fox by touching it and dragging to an
    enemy zone.  Shoot a missile at the enemy zone with the 10 puffer enemies, then
    shoot another one at the enemy zone with the 2 flash bombers.
    
    Use Fox to pick up the next missile and fuel cell, then engage the group of 6
    swarm fighters with the same flight path if you can.
    
    -------------
    Enemy Zone 01
    -------------
    
    Destroy 6 of these swarm fighters high and low, while using the item rings.
    
    
    
    Use Fox to take the remaining missile (and supply ring if you need it) as
    Slippy appears.  Use a missile on one of the enemy zones and Slippy on the
    other one.
    
    Slippy has no lock-on, so just use his twin lasers to destroy the target ships
    and collect the last few cores to finish the mission.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                              (D-03) FICHINA - FOG OF WAR
    ###############################################################################
    
    Time  - 150
    Cores - 13
    Turns - 04
    
    
    This mission introduces the fog, which you can drag the stylus over to clear
    away.  You can only clear a certain amount of fog per turn, so don't worry
    about clearing every pixel in a given area.  Think of the 6 fog patches as
    being arranged like this:
    
    
            E
          D
    
       B  C
    A       F
    
    
    A = 2 Shuriken enemy zone
    B = Fuel cell
    C = Fuel cell
    D = Missile
    E = *EMPTY*
    F = Enemy mother ship
    
    
    I recommend clearing away fog-A and firing a missile at the shurikens in that
    zone if you have one.  If not, you can send Fox over there to shoot through
    their tough shields.
    
    Send Slippy towards fog-B for the fuel cell as he fights the 4 bomber birds in
    the nearby zone.  Get the fuel cell if you didn't earlier, then grab the other
    one in fog-C and the middle in fog-D.  Destroy the lone assault laser in the
    nearby zone if you're close enough.
    
    Kill the 3 shurikens in the zone near the enemy mother ship, then head over to
    the mother ship.
    
    Kill two shurikens here for their cores, then watch as a trail of red square
    beacons appears.  You need to fly through every beacon, then do a roll before
    you hit the ship to destroy it.  Freeing a base from the enemy like this gives
    you 2 extra turns, and if your flight path crosses an allied base, then you can
    fly farther on that path.
    
    
    ---------------
    Boss: Star Wolf
    ---------------
    
    You have to beat 3 members of star wolf, so shoot them with normal shots, and
    locked ones.  Use your bombs while avoiding their mines and be sure to use the
    rings for items.  Watch your radar for any fuel cells and be sure to use loops
    or u-turns when star wolf is chasing you.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found it easier with Slippy.
    Once star wolf is defeated, the mission is over.

    Lucy gets added to your party for this mission, so you have one more team
    member to work with.

    The top enemy zone is 2 web ships, the bottom is a single X, and the other one
    is 3 shurikens.
    
    The top left mother ship has 2 web ships as the target, the top right one has 3
    shurikens as the target, and the bottom one has 3 bomber birds as the target.
    
    
    I recommend sending Lucy along the top, Slippy across the bottom, and Fox right
    between the bottom two no-fly zones.
    
    
    ----------------
    Boss: Death Crab
    ----------------
    
    Shoot the weak spots on the inside of the crab's pincers when they open.
    Repeat this until the crab starts flying, then dodge the pincers as they get
    launched at you like boomerangs.  Keep shooting until they're destroyed and
    work on the boss's 6 legs next.  Shoot the antennas if you want to stop the
    rings briefly, otherwise focus your shots on the body at this point to finish
    the fight.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Lucy worked well.
    Once the death crab is defeated, the mission is over.

    Falco gets added to your party for this mission, so you have a new team member
    to work with.  Amanda also joins you on the second turn.
    
    Enemy missiles are a new threat as well, they are launched from the mother ship
    and they pass through no-fly zones so you have to intercept them.  Missiles
    don't turn around when you get close, like enemy zones.  So you need to fly far
    enough in front of them that they don't pass you as you BOTH move during a
    turn.

     -----------------
    
    The top enemy zone is 2 giant spindly fish, the far right enemy zone is 12
    jellyfish.
    
    The top left mother ship has 1 atomic ray as the target, the bottom right
    mother ship has 3 spiky fish? as the target and the top right mother ship has a
    death plankton as the target.
    
    The missile slipstream stages (when intercepting an enemy missile) are slightly
    different.  They pretty much involve following beacons, like when you take down
    a mother ship.  Do this until you get a message about the missile weakening,
    then KEEP HITTING THE BEACONS as you shoot and destroy the missile.  It helps
    to use a character that can lock-on.
    
    
    I recommend sending Fox up towards the top enemy zone and mother ship, send
    Falco towards the missile and enemy missile and have Slippy move towards the
    allied base.  Amanda can head for the lowest mother ship when she shows up.
    
    Once all mother ships, enemy zones and missiles are destroyed, the mission is
    over.

    Krystal gets added to your party for this mission, so you have a new team
    member to work with.  There's no fog to worry about in this stage either, which
    helps.  Asteroids are in the bottom right area of the map, and they cause your
    flight path to be changed (wasting fuel).
    
     -----------------
    |              EFC| Mi = Missile

    | MS     E      MS| *  = Asteroids
     -----------------
    
    The top left enemy zone is 4 Ammonite I, bottom left enemy zone is 1 bozoid,
    the bottom enemy zone is 1 spin devil and the right enemy zone is 9 angel fish.
    The fifth enemy zone in the top right is 2 pylons.  Use your bombs early to
    make these zones easier.
    
    The top right mother ship has 10 grunt ships? as the target, the bottom left
    mother ship has 10 y as the target and the bottom right mother ship has 1 bee
    fighter II as the target.
    
    These enemy missiles are a bit tougher to shoot down in this mission, as you're
    flying faster from the beacons.  After the 8th beacon you can shoot and release
    your locked shot, but you NEED to be quick or you'll be moving too fast to hit
    the rest of the beacons.
    
    
    I recommend sending Slippy up and right to the top right mother ship, Krystal
    left around to the middle enemy zone (while taking the missile), Falco in front
    of the enemy missile and asteroids and fox to the right enemy zone.  You can
    use your missiles on the enemy zones to make things easier.
    
    Take out the first 4 enemy zones, then grab the missile, fuel cells and supply
    ring while shooting down enemy missiles and destroying the mother ships.  Once
    everything is destroyed, the mission is over.

    I recommend sending Falco straight up to the top left mother ship, Krystal
    right to the bottom mother ship, Fox towards the left enemy zone and Slippy
    towards the middle enemy zone.
    
    Collect the items while destroying the enemy missile, then take out the new
    enemy zone with 6 Invader II ships.  Work on the final mother ship to get the
    boss to appear.

    Boss: Arrow Head
    ----------------
    
    Use your bomb and don't forget the rings in this fight.  Shoot the segments of
    the body until they detach, then watch for their shots.  Keep this up until the
    head is in the middle of 8 other segments (looks like a 3x3 grid).  A green
    spot moves around and that's the one you want to shoot.  When it stops moving,
    that piece launches towards you, so shoot it to send it back (be sure to roll
    during this part).  Keep this up and shoot the head in the middle as everything
    gets faster to defeat the boss.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Falco worked well.
    Once the arrow head is defeated, the mission is over.
    
    
    Now you can sit back and watch the first ending to the game (out of 9).  Play
    the single-player mode again to start trying for the second ending.

    I recommend sending Fox up towards the left mother ship as two more enemy zones
    get launched.  Fight them off and take out the left mother ship, then finish
    off the rest while grabbing the items to complete the mission.
    
    
    Afterwards it's your first real choice, now you can choose the locked options
    if you want.  Any option that you've chosen before will be marked with blue

    mother ship.  Falco can take out the enemy missile, before you clear out the
    rest of your foes and finish the mission.

    Katt shows up from the left after the second turn, so send her through the

    Boss: Pigma
    -----------
    
    This boss is made up of four cubes that rotate each time they are shot.  You
    want to shoot the cubes until they are each showing the purple side, Pigma's
    face.
    
    At this point the boss has different attacks depending on which colour is
    facing you.  The purple side shoots a deadly blue outline of Pigma's face that
    you MUST avoid.  The green side has two rounds of 6 heat-seeking missiles for
    you to destroy or avoid.  The red side has two sets of laser pillars to avoid.
    The yellow side has flames, so dodge them.
    
    Target the red orb in the middle and shoot it while dealing with these attacks
    to damage the boss.

    missiles on the enemies closest to the great fox.  Ignore the next two missiles
    and draw a path right past two enemy zones.  Slippy joins you on the third
    turn, so have him intercept the enemy missile, then go up past the closest

    ship, while Slippy takes the missile in the middle route and curves down
    towards the lower enemy zone.  Have Slippy bait the enemy missile as you use
    one of your own on the enemy missile, then get Fox to fly towards the upper

    The first enemy zone is 9 swarm fighters, the other 2 zones are 2 flash bombers
    and 2 elite fighters.
    
    The left mother ship has 2 starfish as the target, the right has 4 commanders
    as the target.
    
    
    I recommend sending Fox up towards the left mother ship as two more enemy zones
    get launched.  Fight them off and take out the left mother ship, then finish
    off the rest while grabbing the items to complete the mission.

    missiles on the enemies closest to the great fox.  Ignore the next two missiles
    and draw a path right past two enemy zones.  Slippy joins you on the third
    turn, so have him intercept the enemy missile, then go up past the closest
    missile as you take out the mother ship with Fox.  Try to pick up the last
    missile before fighting the final enemy zone and finishing the mission.

    assault laser.
    
    The top right mother ship has 2 shurikens as the target, and the middle mother
    ship has 3 bomber birds as the target.
    
    
    I recommend sending Fox on the upper path towards the top enemy zone and mother
    ship, while Slippy takes the missile in the middle route and curves down
    towards the lower enemy zone.  Have slippy bait the enemy missile as you use
    one of your own on the enemy missile, then get Fox to fly towards the upper
    mother ship.  Clear away the rest of the units to start the boss battle.

    the rings for items.  Watch your radar for any fuel cells and be sure to use
    loops or u-turns when star wolf is chasing you.

    Boss: Death Crab
    ----------------
    
    Shoot the weak spots on the inside of the crab's pincers when they open.
    Repeat this until the crab starts flying, then dodge the pincers as they get
    launched at you like boomerangs.  Keep shooting until they're destroyed and
    work on the boss's 6 legs next.  Shoot the antennas if you want to stop the
    rings briefly, otherwise focus your shots on the body at this point to finish
    the fight.

    swarm fighters and finally 12 more swarm fighters.
    
    
    I recommend firing off any missiles you have at nearby enemy zones, then
    sending Lucy on a path that passes over a group of missiles (remembering that
    the great fox can only hold a maximum of 3) and any allied bases.  Repeat this
    as you use the missiles on the enemy zones, then take out the enemy missile
    before it gets too close to the great fox to finish the mission.

    I recommend sending Peppy, Frog and Fox past the allied base to the mother ship
    in the middle of the map, Falco can go up across the right 2 allied bases and
    intercept the right enemy missile.  Clear out the units from here to start the
    boss fight.

    Boss: Grunner
    -------------
    
    This boss runs along the sand and causes pairs of pillars to rise up behind
    him.  The pillars have a damaging barrier if you fly between them, so fly
    to either side.  Rocks also fly back at you during this attack, but you can get
    fuel cells by shooting the rocks.  Their is a weak spot on the boss's butt, so
    lock on if you can and start shooting it from behind.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Peppy worked well.

    towards the lowest mother ship, Peppy left towards another missile and Fox left
    to intercept the enemy missile.  Clear away any remaining units to start the
    boss fight.
    
    
    ----------------
    Boss: Arrow Head
    ----------------
    
    Use your bomb and don't forget the rings in this fight.  Shoot the segments of
    the body until they detach, then watch for their shots.  The boss enters holes
    in the ground, fires blue cubes and swings his body at you (roll for both
    attacks).  It's easy to run out of time in this stage, so you want to roll
    through a lot of rings to get some extra time.
    
    Keep up your attacks until the head is in the middle of 8 other segments (looks
    like a 3x3 grid).  A green spot moves around and that's the one you want to
    shoot.  When it stops moving, that piece launches towards you, so shoot it to
    send it back (be sure to roll during this part).  Keep this up and shoot the
    head in the middle as everything gets faster to defeat the first boss fight.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Slippy worked well.
    
    
    --------------------
    Boss: Emperor Anglar
    --------------------
    
    This boss is a large head with 3 green mines, but there's no time limit.  You
    want to shoot each mine until it turns red, while moving in a circle to avoid
    the pink stream of shots from the middle.
    
    Take the item and roll for the swirling attack to send it back to the boss,
    then start shooting his antenna to deal damage.  Repeat this process until the
    boss is at half health, then get ready for some craziness.  Now there are
    vertical and horizontal bars to weave through while you shoot the green mines.
    
    Once all three are destroyed you are left with the boss's face once more.  This
    time the boss gets blue rings near his mouth before trying to inhale you, so
    use your brakes to avoid getting chewed on.  After this attack you can roll to
    deflect some debris, but KEEP shooting his antenna to finish off the boss and
    the mission.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Slippy worked well.
    
    
    Now you can sit back and watch the fourth ending to the game.  Play the
    single-player mode again to start trying for the fifth ending.

    take the other missile while attacking an enemy zone.  Send Fox to the nearest

    and 3 andreavers.
    
    The mother ship has 3 solar fighters as the target.
    
    
    I recommend sending everyone through 3 missiles and as many enemy zones as
    possible each turn.  Use those missiles between turns to thin out the enemies,
    then intercept the two enemy missiles as you go.  Clear away the rest of the
    units to start the boss battle.
    
    
    ---------------------
    Boss: Solar Satellite
    ---------------------
    
    This boss releases VERY ANNOYING solar fighters during the battle.  Otherwise
    you need to watch for the pink beams from the engines and make sure you don't
    crash into the thing.  Look for the glowing spot on the two side objects, on
    the back side with those engines.  Target these spots and shoot until they are
    both gone.
    
    Now you want to come from behind and shoot the top half of the boss repeatedly.
    This tips it into the lava so it takes damage.  Repeat this until the boss is
    no more and the mission is over.
    
    The real trick is to lock on and attack the solar fighters as soon as they
    appear to get them out of the way and hopefully some items too.  You can also
    destroy the rocks for items, so be sure to do so.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Wolf worked well.
    
    
    Choose option 1 from here "Sorry. I'm outta here" to continue on this path.
    You also have plasma lasers for Fox for the rest of this path.

    right along the bottom.  Intercept the enemy missile and clear out the
    remaining units to start a boss fight.
    
    
    -------------------
    Boss: Monarch Dodra
    -------------------
    
    This two-headed boss releases slow orange missiles during the fight, so shoot
    them as needed.  Be sure to use your bombs and target the heads while you
    deflect the streams of shots.  Near the end, the heads get buried in the sand
    and surface, so keep shooting them to finish the fight and the mission.

    zones and Dash up along the right edge.  Clear out the leftover units to start

    ----------------
    Boss: Arrow Head
    ----------------
    
    Use your bomb and don't forget the rings in this fight.  Shoot the segments of
    the body until they detach, then watch for their shots.  The boss enters holes
    in the ground, fires blue cubes and swings his body at you (roll for both
    attacks).  It's easy to run out of time in this stage, so you want to roll
    through a lot of rings to get some extra time.
    
    Keep up your attacks until the head is in the middle of 8 other segments (looks
    like a 3x3 grid).  A green spot moves around and that's the one you want to
    shoot.  When it stops moving, that piece launches towards you, so shoot it to
    send it back (be sure to roll during this part).  Keep this up and shoot the
    head in the middle as everything gets faster to defeat the boss.
    
    
    It's up to you who you want to use, but James is new and pretty good.
    
    
    --------------------
    Boss: Emperor Anglar
    --------------------
    
    This boss is a large head with 3 green mines, but there's no time limit.  You
    want to shoot each mine until it turns red, while moving in a circle to avoid
    the pink stream of shots from the middle.
    
    Roll for the swirling attack to send it back to the boss (you have to bounce it
    back more than once before it hits), then start shooting his antenna to deal
    damage.
    
    Repeat this process as the mines use green beams to hold you, avoid the beams
    so they don't turn pink.  They rush into you once all three beams touch you, so
    roll and dodge when this happens (try to make sure it doesn't though).
    
    When the boss is at half health there are vertical and horizontal bars to weave
    through while you shoot the green mines.
    
    Once all three are destroyed you are left with the boss's face once more.  This
    time the boss gets blue rings near his mouth before trying to inhale you, so
    use your brakes to avoid getting chewed on.  After this attack you can roll to
    deflect some debris, but KEEP shooting his antenna to finish off the boss and
    the mission.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Dash worked well.
    
    
    Now you can sit back and watch the fifth ending to the game.  Play the

    take the other missile while attacking an enemy zone.  Send Fox to the nearest

    This boss is made up of four cubes that rotate each time they are shot.  You

    face.   This time the cubes continue to spin from the purple side and the boss
    moves more, so shoot carefully.
    
    At this point the boss has different attacks depending on which colour is
    facing you.  The purple side shoots a deadly blue outline of Pigma's face that
    you MUST avoid.  The green side has two rounds of 6 heat-seeking missiles for
    you to destroy or avoid.  The red side has two sets of laser pillars to avoid.

    starfish and the right has 3 elite fighters.
    
    
    I recommend sending Fox left across the allied base and into the bottom left
    corner for items.  Head for the middle mother ship next and go right across 2
    allied bases while dealing with the new enemy zone and attacking the right
    mother ship.  Clear out the remaining units to finish the mission.

    mother ship (draw carefully).  Dash joins you on the second turn, so have him
    take the other missile while attacking an enemy zone.  Send Fox to the nearest

    Boss: Star Wolf
    ---------------
    
    You have to beat 3 members of star wolf, so shoot them with normal shots, and
    locked ones.  Use your bombs while avoiding their mines and be sure to use the
    rings for items.  Watch your radar for any fuel cells and be sure to use loops
    or u-turns when star wolf is chasing you.
    
    Once all three are destroyed, the mission is over.

    I recommend sending everyone through 3 missiles and as many enemy zones as
    possible each turn.  Use those missiles between turns to thin out the enemies,
    then intercept the two enemy missiles as you go.  Clear away the rest of the
    units to start the boss battle.
    
    
    ---------------------
    Boss: Solar Satellite
    ---------------------
    
    This boss releases VERY ANNOYING solar fighters during the battle.  Otherwise
    you need to watch for the pink beams from the engines and make sure you don't
    crash into the thing.  Look for the glowing spot on the two side objects, on
    the back side with those engines.  Target these spots and shoot until they are
    both gone.
    
    Now you want to come from behind and shoot the top half of the boss repeatedly.
    This tips it into the lava so it takes damage.  Repeat this until the boss is
    no more and the mission is over.
    
    The real trick is to lock on and attack the solar fighters as soon as they
    appear to get them out of the way and hopefully some items too.  You can also
    destroy the rocks for items, so be sure to do so.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Wolf worked well.

    Boss: Killer Bee
    ----------------
    
    This boss likes to teleport at times and fires streams of discs horizontally at

    through the discs until you need to dodge the rest.  It also sends smaller bees
    to fight you, so shoot them if they're in your way.

    The left mother ship has 1 zazanga as the target, the top right has 1 bee
    fighter, the middle right has 1 devil shark and the bottom right has 1 jet
    fighter?.
    
    
    I recommend using your missiles (if you have any) and sending Krystal and Leon
    right along the bottom path.  Send Wolf north along the edge to the enemy zones
    up there and have Panther go northeast past the missile to the left mother
    ship.
    
    
    ----------------
    Boss: Arrow Head
    ----------------
    
    Use your bomb and don't forget the rings in this fight.  Shoot the segments of
    the body until they detach, then watch for their shots.  The boss enters holes
    in the ground, fires blue cubes and swings his body at you (roll for both
    attacks).  It's easy to run out of time in this stage, so you want to roll
    through a lot of rings to get some extra time.
    
    Keep up your attacks until the head is in the middle of 8 other segments (looks
    like a 3x3 grid).  A green spot moves around and that's the one you want to
    shoot.  When it stops moving, that piece launches towards you, so shoot it to
    send it back (be sure to roll during this part).  Keep this up and shoot the
    head in the middle as everything gets faster to defeat the boss.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Wolf worked well.
    
    
    --------------------
    Boss: Emperor Anglar
    --------------------
    
    This boss is a large head with 3 green mines, but there's no time limit.  You
    want to shoot each mine until it turns red, while moving in a circle to avoid
    the pink stream of shots from the middle.
    
    Roll for the swirling attack to send it back to the boss (you have to bounce it
    back more than once before it hits), then start shooting his antenna to deal
    damage.
    
    Repeat this process as the mines use green beams to hold you, avoid the beams
    so they don't turn pink.  They rush into you once all three beams touch you, so
    roll and dodge when this happens (try to make sure it doesn't though).
    
    When the boss is at half health there are vertical and horizontal bars to weave
    through while you shoot the green mines.
    
    Once all three are destroyed you are left with the boss's face once more.  This
    time the boss gets blue rings near his mouth before trying to inhale you, so
    use your brakes to avoid getting chewed on.  After this attack you can roll to
    deflect some debris, but KEEP shooting his antenna to finish off the boss and
    the mission.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Wolf worked well.
    
    
    Now you can sit back and watch the seventh ending to the game.  Play the
    single-player mode again to start trying for the eighth ending.

    I recommend sending Fox up to the first 2 missiles at the start, then use those
    missiles on the enemies closest to the great fox.  Ignore the next two missiles
    and draw a path right past two enemy zones.  Slippy joins you on the third
    turn, so have him intercept the enemy missile, then go up past the closest
    missile as you take out the mother ship with Fox.  Try to pick up the last
    missile before fighting the final enemy zone and finishing the mission.

    spiky fish?, the left has 1 atomic ray.
    
    
    I recommend using any missiles before sending Slippy up past the missile to the
    top right mother ship.  Send Amanda to the bottom left mother ship, and clear
    out the remaining units to face off against the boss.
    
    
    -----------------
    Boss: Devil Shark
    -----------------
    
    This boss takes damage in the head while trying to ram you.  Occasionally it
    separates and you need to attack the red ball while avoiding lasers.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Amanda worked well.
    
    
    Now you can sit back and watch the eighth ending to the game.  Play the
    single-player mode again to start trying for the ninth and final ending.

    I recommend sending Fox left across the allied base and into the bottom left
    corner for items.  Head for the middle mother ship next and go right across 2
    allied bases while dealing with the new enemy zone and attacking the right
    mother ship.  Clear out the remaining units to finish the mission.

    The mother ship has 4 commanders as the target.
    
    
    I recommend sending Fox up to the first 2 missiles at the start, then use those
    missiles on the enemies closest to the great fox.  Ignore the next two missiles
    and draw a path right past two enemy zones.  Slippy joins you on the third
    turn, so have him intercept the enemy missile, then go up past the closest
    missile as you take out the mother ship with Fox.  Try to pick up the last
    missile before fighting the final enemy zone and finishing the mission.

    assault laser.
    
    The top right mother ship has 2 shurikens as the target, and the middle mother
    ship has 3 bomber birds as the target.
    
    
    I recommend sending Fox on the upper path towards the top enemy zone and mother
    ship, while Slippy takes the missile in the middle route and curves down
    towards the lower enemy zone.  Have Slippy bait the enemy missile as you use
    one of your own on the enemy missile, then get Fox to fly towards the upper
    mother ship.  Clear away the rest of the units to start the boss battle.

    Boss: Star Wolf
    ---------------
    
    You have to beat 3 members of star wolf here, so shoot them with normal shots
    and locked ones.  Use your bombs while avoiding their mines and be sure to use
    the rings for items.  Watch your radar for any fuel cells and be sure to use
    loops or u-turns when star wolf is chasing you.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found it easier with Slippy.
    Once star wolf is defeated, the mission is over.

    The mother ship has 4 attacker III ships as the target.
    
    
    I recommend sending Slippy NE past the right side of the top no-fly zone and
    send Fox NW towards the left enemy missile.  Send Slippy up to the mother ship
    while a 3rd enemy missile is launched, then have Fox take out the left one.
    Falco joins you on the second turn so have everyone chase down the pair of
    enemy missiles (draw Fox carefully right) to start the boss fight.
    
    
    --------------
    Boss: Biobrain
    --------------
    
    This blob has 4 smaller drones surrounding it.  They either circle the boss and
    fire lasers, or form a row that spins and tries to smash into you.  In either
    case you want to roll and lock onto these nodes before shooting them.
    
    Once all 4 are destroyed, the boss starts to divide into copies which fly at
    you.  You need to dodge these copies and shoot the boss until he is dead.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found it easier with Fox.
    
    
    Choose option 2 from here "Say good-bye to Fox" to continue on this path.
    You also have multi-lock for Fox for the rest of this path.

    I recommend sending everyone right as Krystal grabs the missile and follows.
    Have Fox take the bottom right mother ship and send Falco up to the top right
    one.  Slippy can head NW for the other mother ships and units, but leave
    Krystal behind to intercept enemy missiles.

    This large worm travels through the ground and you can get a lock while it's

    but there are also rocks flying around for you to shoot or avoid.

    The middle mother ship has 2 worms? as the target, the left has 1 zazanga and
    the right has 1 jet fighter.
    
    
    I recommend grabbing the fuel cell with Fox as he goes up towards the middle
    mother ship, sending Slippy left to intercept the enemy missile, Falco NW
    somewhere and Krystal up along the right edge towards the right mother ship.
    Clear the remaining units to start the boss battle.
    
    
    ----------------
    Boss: Arrow Head
    ----------------
    
    Use your bomb and don't forget the rings in this fight.  Shoot the segments of
    the body until they detach, then watch for their shots.  The boss enters holes
    in the ground, fires blue cubes and swings his body at you (roll for both
    attacks).  It's easy to run out of time in this stage, so you want to roll
    through a lot of rings to get some extra time.
    
    Keep up your attacks until the head is in the middle of 8 other segments (looks
    like a 3x3 grid).  A green spot moves around and that's the one you want to
    shoot.  When it stops moving, that piece launches towards you, so shoot it to
    send it back (be sure to roll during this part).  Keep this up and shoot the
    head in the middle as everything gets faster to defeat the boss.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Slippy worked well.
    
    
    --------------------
    Boss: Emperor Anglar
    --------------------
    
    This boss is a large head with 3 green mines, but there's no time limit.  You
    want to shoot each mine until it turns red, while moving in a circle to avoid
    the pink stream of shots from the middle.
    
    Roll for the swirling attack to send it back to the boss (you have to bounce it
    back more than once before it hits), then start shooting his antenna to deal
    damage.
    
    Repeat this process as the mines use green beams to hold you, avoid the beams
    so they don't turn pink.  They rush into you once all three beams touch you, so
    roll and dodge when this happens (try to make sure it doesn't though).
    
    When the boss is at half health there are vertical and horizontal bars to weave
    through while you shoot the green mines.
    
    Once all three are destroyed you are left with the boss's face once more.  This
    time the boss gets blue rings near his mouth before trying to inhale you, so
    use your brakes to avoid getting chewed on.  After this attack you can roll to
    deflect some debris, but KEEP shooting his antenna to finish off the boss and
    the mission.
    
    
    Its up to you who to use for this battle, but I found that Slippy worked well.
    
    
    Now you can sit back and watch the ninth and final ending to the game!

                                       (G) TIPS
    ###############################################################################
    
    When locking onto an enemy, try to keep your cursor on them until the lock
    takes on a diamond shape (instead of a square).  This means you will do more
    damage when you release the shot, and can mean HUGE damage for multi-lock
    characters if you get a MAX lock.
    
    Killing 100 enemies produces 10 coins in a ring, the coins are only present for
    a brief period.  Collecting them gives you extra time and collecting all of
    them gets you an extra life.
    
    Try to use someone who has a lock-on for the missile slipstream stages, as it
    makes them easier.
    
    Try to fly in the paths of multiple enemy zones in a single turn, or near one
    and then over to a mother ship or enemy missile.  This way you can fight more
    than one in a single turn.  This can also save you missiles and distract them
    from the great fox.
    
    Missiles carry over from mission to mission, until you see one of the endings.
    So save them if you don't need to use them.  Bombs don't, so be sure to use
    them if you can.
    
    When a path has no more branches to it and you've already completed it, you
    will see a star above the final choice for that path (on the planet map) to
    indicate that you've finished it before.

    ###############################################################################
    
    For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
    here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
    the same idea.
    
    I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
    send money, so it's here for those people.
    
    
    For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
    Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
    excellent progress on a few FAQs.
    
    If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
    hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.
    
    My email address is fecalord (AT) gmail (DOT) com, and the paypal address is
    listed below.
    
    
    For those that want to contribute, you can use paypal at the following address:

    Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
