*NOTE*  This game is what Super Mario Bros. 2 in North America eventually
became, for the most part they both play the same but there are some minor
differences.  There is no turbo run in this game and a lot less elements are
animated, one of the bosses is also changed.  Finally you have to beat the game
FOUR times (once with each character) to see the ending.

                           Bricklayer J. Gastronomy

Once you start the game you get to choose which of the four characters you want
to play as.  You must beat the whole game with that character (or die trying)
before you can change to another character though.

For the most part the game plays the same no matter who you pick, basically if
you choose Mama you won't need to use high jumps as much as everyone else.  If
you use Lina then some jumps will become a lot easier with her float ability.

Despite who you choose though you will still be working your way past the same
obstacles and enemies, for this reason I will write the FAQ with one of the
generic characters (Imajin & Papa) in mind.


###############################################################################
                               (F-01) Stage 1-1
###############################################################################

After falling out of the floating door you should land on a small green
platform.  Head left or right as you fall past a pair of enemies and land on
the ground, then enter the door to reach the next area.


Pick up three vegetables from the dark sprouts in the ground to your right,
then throw them at the trio of enemies beyond.  Climb the vine and avoid the
enemy as you pick the rightmost sprout for a lamp.  Throw it anywhere on this
platform and enter the door, then pick up the heart container on the other side
and quickly get three coins from the sprouts if you have enough time.

Head right and grab the cherry, then throw the POW block to get rid of the
nearby enemies.  Collect another cherry to your right, then use the vegetables
on the enemies as you jump up the platforms to the red log above.

Cross the log and jump over the enemy, then wait by the falling logs beyond.
When the left log appears quickly jump across to the other side, then use
vegetables on the enemies to your right before climbing to the top platform.
Pull the sprout here for a 1up, then carry the POW block as you collect the
cherry to your right.

Throw the POW block to take out the enemies up ahead, then pick the two
leftmost sprouts for a bomb and head, give each weapon a try.  Use the
vegetables to take out some more enemies if needed, then grab the pair of
cherries to make a star appear.  Quickly grab it and rush right across the log,
then enter the door.


Rush left into the lone enemy if you're still invincible.  If not you can use
vegetables on him or just jump over him.  Either way climb up the vine beyond
him and take the shortcut outlined below if you wish.


***********************************SHORTCUT***********************************
Jump left past the waterfall (you'll make it if you jump from the left edge of
the vine, because it counts as a platform) and use a high jump to reach the
enemy above, then throw him out of your way.  Pick the sprouts to find some
bombs, then throw them down the ladder so that they explode on the way down and
destroy the cracked blocks to your left.  Once a hole two blocks tall is
created you can enter the door to skip the rest of the stage and reach the
boss.

Once there though you will need to use a high jump and go left over a wall to
reach him.
*************************************HERE*************************************


Head right and enter the door that you find if you'd rather complete the stage
normally.

Pick the first sprout to your right for a lamp, then grab a heart container in
the door that you create as well as any coins if you have enough time.  Jump on
top of the enemy moving along the vine, then climb the vine to reach the next
area.


Jump on the jumping enemy, then jump to the platform above when he pushes you
up.  Use the next jumping enemy in the same way to continue climbing, then jump
up to the clouds on your own.  Climb the vine and jump left across the clouds,
then ride the enemy on the rightmost vine.  Head left at the top, then climb
the next vine to reach the next area and the boss.


Head right and jump the pit, then hide in the gap to your right near the boss.
Wait here and watch as the boss spits an egg every few seconds.  You need to
jump straight up and land on the egg in mid-flight.  Once you've done this,
press B to pick up the egg.  Finally throw the egg at the boss to do some
damage.  Once you hit the boss with three eggs the battle will end.  Pick up
the crystal that the boss drops to open the giant mask to your right.  The mask
is actually the stage exit, so walk through it to end the stage.


[BONUS STAGE]

Between every stage is a bonus stage where you play a slot-machine sort of
game.

The coins that you collected in the previous stage determine how many chances
you get at the bonus stage.

Basically if you get three of the same symbol you will get a 1up, except for
cherries.

- If you get a cherry in the first slot you get an automatic 1up.
- If you get cherries in the first two slots you get two extra lives.
- If you get three cherries you get five extra lives.


###############################################################################
                               (F-02) Stage 1-2
###############################################################################

As soon as you start the stage you should see an enemy on a magic carpet to
your right.  Jump up to the highest platform and wait for the enemy to take a
dive at you, then quickly jump on him and throw him away.  Quickly fly right
with the magic carpet and avoid the flying enemies along the way.  Jump to
solid ground on the other side before the carpet disappears.

Pick the first sprout for a lamp, then create a door and collect the heart
container on the other side.  Press down on top of the left vase to enter it,
then pick the sprout inside for a 1up before leaving.

Enter the next vase to your right and pick up the key inside, then exit with
the key.  Quickly throw the key at the jumping enemies to your right before the
flying enemy gets you.  These flying enemies always chase you while you're
holding a key, but if you drop the key for a few seconds they'll leave you
alone until you pick it up again.  Pick up the key and use it to enter the
locked door to your right as you grab the cherry.


Grab the trio of cherries inside, then pick up the nearby enemy and throw him
at the bullet-spitting enemy to your right.  Jump the gaps and pick the sprouts
to find bombs, then use them to get rid of part of the cracked wall to your
right.

Avoid the enemy's bullets as you climb the ladder, then pick the two rightmost
sprouts and use them to destroy two of the cracked blocks to your right.  Pick
the next sprout to your left for a lamp, then throw it near the last cracked
block.  Enter the door and grab the heart container, then head right once you
return and grab the cherry.  Throw one enemy at the other, then use a high jump
to get over the wall before taking the door to the next area.


Jump the enemies as you head right, then enter the door to reach the boss.

You beat this boss in the same way as you beat the boss in the previous stage,
so just hit him with three eggs.  You will be fighting this boss many times
throughout the game.  Once beaten exit the stage like normal and play the bonus
stage if you can.


###############################################################################
                               (F-03) Stage 1-3
###############################################################################

Head right at the start and jump two gaps, then jump to the enemies above you
and avoid their shots.  Throw one enemy into the other if you wish, then
collect four cherries by heading left.  Return right and jump to the log, then
pick the right sprout for a lamp.  Create a door with the lamp and enter it for
a heart container, but don't touch any of the cherries until you return.

Once back in the daylight grab the cherries and collect the star that appears.
Quickly run right and jump across a series of logs with jumping fish between
them, then wait at the highest log.  Jump across the falling logs to your right
when they reach the surface, then pick the five sprouts for a stopwatch.

Rush right and carefully jump across two falling logs, then jump on the larger
log to your right.  You can now follow the method outlined below to warp to
stage 4-1, or you can finish the stage normally.


*************************************WARP*************************************
Pick the left sprout under the log for a lamp, then get ready to carry it some
distance.  Jump the gap to your right and jump the group of enemies beyond as
you continue right.  Finally create a door as close as possible to the vase
near the cliff, then enter the door and quickly enter the vase to warp to stage
4-1.
*************************************HERE*************************************


Grab the cherry and jump the gap to your right, then jump the group of enemies
and enter the door when you reach it.


Jump to the nearby chain and climb up, then head right at the top and pick up a
mask.  Place the mask on the upper platform to your left, then stand on it and
perform a high jump to reach the platform above.  Avoid the enemy and jump up
the series of platforms to your left, then wait when you reach the enemies at
the top.  Carefully use running jumps to reach the door at the top of this
area, then enter it.

Use a running jump to reach the key, then pick it up and take it through the
door.

The mask will be chasing you now so try to fall down to the pile of masks that
you passed earlier as quickly as possible, then drop the key in front of you
temporarily.

If the key ever falls off screen or into a pit, then it will reappear in the
room that you first found it in 99% of the time.  Sometimes you get lucky
though and the key will land on solid ground, allowing you to pick it up again.

Pick up the key and continue your fall down past the door where you entered,
past a bullet-shooting enemy and past a number of chains.  When you reach the
section with the chains be sure to hold right so you land by the locked door
instead of on the spikes.  Now use the key to unlock the door and enter the
next area.


Grab the cherry if you can, then avoid the enemies as you jump right across the
platforms.  Continue right and throw the enemy out of your way, then grab the
cherries and use the POW block if needed.  Grab the star if it appears and use
it to continue right past more enemies, then pick up the crystal and exit this
area.


Here's where your first tough boss battle takes place, you will be using bombs
as your weapon.  Pick the two nearby sprouts first and start to destroy the
cracked wall, then head right to meet the giant mouse that is the stage boss.

Stand below his platform for a moment since it's safe there, basically the boss
throws three bombs before jumping in the air.  You can jump on one of his bombs
and pick it up, but this is risky because it takes longer to do.  You can also
just stand somewhere or jump into the air and catch one of his bombs in mid
flight.

The second method is what I tend to use since it's faster and less risky.
Either way, once you have a bomb you'll want to throw it on the boss's
platform.  The best way to do this if you have enough time is to stand below
the platform, jump straight up and drop the bomb.

Once you hit the boss with four bombs the fight is over, then just enter the
door that appears to end the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-04) Stage 2-1
###############################################################################

Head right at the start of this stage until you see a snake bobbing in the
ground, it jumps out of the ground when you get close.  Move up to the snake
and jump over it after it lands, then continue right past a vase.  Grab the
nearby cherry and continue right, then carefully jump the snake's bullet as you
pass another vase.

Pick the left sprout for a lamp, then create a door with it to find a heart
container on the other side.  Jump across the quicksand to your right and grab
a cherry, then catch your breath on a cactus or the nearby bones.

Continue right until you reach a tower of blocks, then jump the pair of enemies
while hiding below the flower so you don't get hit.  Carefully grab the pair of
cherries above, then jump onto the cactus to your right.

Collect the cherry and the star that appears next, then rush right past more
quicksand.  Jump the cactus, then go through the door up ahead to enter the
next area.


Walk off the right edge of the platform and start digging towards the cherry
below, then dig your way over to another cherry left of you.  Continue digging
in a zigzag pattern as you avoid some bullets from the enemy on your left, then
collect two more cherries.  Dig left and climb down the ladder when you reach
it, then head through the door to your right.


Jump the gap to your right to meet the boss for this stage, then beat him the
same way that you have twice before.  Grab the crystal and exit the stage past
the gaps to your right.


###############################################################################
                               (F-05) Stage 2-2
###############################################################################

From the start jump up the steps and enter the door to the next area.


Head right and jump from the cactus to land on the snake, then throw him at the
flying enemy to your right.  Collect the pair of cherries and go right to the
vase, then pick the first sprout to your right for a vase.  Create a door and
enter it for a heart container, then quickly grab the pair of cherries before
you return to daylight.

Grab the same cherries here on the daylight side and take the star if it
appears.  Continue right past two vases and some cactus, then continue right
past some faster quicksand and enter the door beyond.


Grab the cherry and pick the rightmost sprout for a 1up, then pick up any of
the other sprouts for a bomb.  Quickly use a high jump and use your bomb to
destroy part of the nearby cracked wall, then jump the gap beyond.  Pick the
middle of the five sprouts for a lamp, then create a door and grab a heart
container on the other side of it.  Return right after you get the heart
container and exit this cave through the door that you came in.


Head right past a number of vases with snakes in them, then continue right.
Head past a cactus and a pair of flowers, then climb down a vine to the next
area.


Dig through the sound the same way you did in the previous stage as you collect
cherries.  Be sure to take the right path when given a choice, then avoid the
enemy's bullets as you dig.  Enter the door once you hit the bottom to reach
the next area.


Head right until you reach the masks, then pick one up and head right.  Jump
the gap and use a high jump to reach the boss, then notice that he spits fire
now as well as eggs.

You can beat him with his own eggs like you've been doing so far, but this is a
risky option.  It's easier to just use the masks because you can use them
multiple times.  Either way hit the boss three times to beat him, then grab the
crystal and exit the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-06) Stage 2-3
###############################################################################

Climb up the nearby ladder at the start of the stage to get out of the small
cave, then head left for a pair of cherries before going right.  Jump the
flying enemy and pick the first sprout for a lamp, then carry it left and use
it where you got the cherries.  Enter the door for a heart container, then
continue right when you get back to daylight.

Jump over the many flying enemies as you head right and be sure to grab the
cherries on your way.  Take the star when it appears to make things a little
easier, then continue right past quicksand and an enemy cactus before entering
a nearby door.


Fall down the right side of the shaft and collect the pair of cherries if you
can, the first is left of the middle and the second is by the right wall.
Continue falling until you hit sand, then start digging and collecting more
cherries on your way down.

When the path forks you can take either side to reach the bottom.  However what
you should do is start digging on one side, then jump up a bit and let all the
enemies drop into the hole that you just dug, then you can easily dig on the
other side without being bothered.  Either way enter the door at the bottom
when you see it to reach the next area.


Use a running jump to reach the key, then take it to the previous area and
quickly jump up the sand with it while avoiding the enemy mask.  Unlock the
door at the top to reach the next area.


Dig in the sand to your right for some cherries and hopefully a star, then
continue right and run quickly past the flower so you don't get hit by its
shots.  Continue right past some vases and snakes, then grab the crystal and
exit this area.


Head right to see a pile of masks, then pick one of them up while avoiding the
boss's shots.  Jump to the 3x1 platform on your right, then run at the boss and
jump into the air before tossing the mask to hit him.  You have to jump towards
him so that the mask goes far enough, but after throwing it you need to make
sure that you don't land on the boss.  Once you hit the boss three times the
battle will end, then you can enter the door to end the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-07) Stage 3-1
###############################################################################

This first area is pretty easy, just head right and jump the gap before
entering a door.


*************************************WARP*************************************
Fall in the pit in front of you and stay in the middle of the screen to land
above a door instead of getting killed.  Carefully drop down to the door, then
enter it.

Head right and pick the sixth sprout from the right for a lamp, then take it
right.  Create a door on the vase, then enter the door and go down the vase to
warp to stage 5-1.
*************************************HERE*************************************


Now you get to jump up a series of clouds while easily avoiding some enemies.
Once you reach the top cloud you'll see an enemy with a magic carpet that you
need.  Just jump on him when he swoops down like you've done before, then throw
him away and start flying straight up.  Ignore the flying enemies and continue
your climb, then grab the vine at the top before your carpet disappears and
climb up it to the next area.


Pick up the enemy to your left, then use him to get rid of the flower to your
right.  Work your way clockwise along the clouds to continue right, then jump
left to reach the sprouts and pick the left one for a lamp.  Create a door and
collect the heart container on your right, then return to daylight and head
right.   Jump past the flower's shots when you see a pause, then continue right
past a ladder.  Another flower will appear but this one can walk towards you,
either use a vegetable on it or jump between its shots.  Continue right and
jump a gap, then enter a door to reach the next area.


Head right to meet the boss, this one does shoot fire occasionally but for the
most part it shoots eggs.  You can either beat the boss with the eggs or the
two masks to your right, either way after three hits you can grab the crystal
and exit the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-08) Stage 3-2
###############################################################################

Jump the ostrich-riding enemy and head right, then avoid a number of flying
enemies until you reach a pair of sprouts.  Pick either one and carry the
vegetable right, then use it to take out a flower enemy.  Continue right and
jump the pair of enemies, then jump the bullet-spitting enemy beyond.  Head
right some more and pick the first sprout on the ledge when you reach it for a
lamp.  Create a door and grab the heart container, then head back left in
daylight.  Pick up one of the two POW blocks and head right underground, then
throw the block to take out the enemy in your way and go down the ladder
beyond.


Jump or climb to the ledge on your left, then pick one of the sprouts and
quickly drop down to the ledge below.  Use the bomb on the wall to your left,
then use another bomb from the upper floor on the next wall on the lower floor.
Use the two lower bombs to take out the last two walls down here, then kill the
enemies on the other side and climb the ladder above.


Carefully walk left past the flower's shots, then climb down the ladder beyond
to reach the next area.


Jump the gaps and climb the ladder to exit this area.


Avoid the flying enemies as you head left, then climb down the ladder beyond.


Pick the sprouts for bombs, then drop them at the right time to take out some
of the cracked wall on your left.  Go left and climb the ladder enough to
continue left, then pick the far left sprout for a bomb.  Use the bomb on the
cracked blocks to your right, then pick the rightmost sprout for a lamp.
Create a door and get the heart container on the other side, then exit this
area through the ladder that you passed earlier.


Simply enter the door here to reach the next area.


Head left to meet up with the boss, then beat him with eggs (he shoots fire
sometimes too) or the masks in the usual way.  Finally grab the crystal and
exit the stage to your right.


###############################################################################
                               (F-09) Stage 3-3
###############################################################################

Head right and jump up the steps, then enter the door to the next area.


Go right and pick the far right sprout for a lamp, then create a door and
collect the heart container on the other side of it.  Back in daylight head
right past a number of enemies, then enter the door when you reach it.


Pick the middle sprout of the three on your left for a lamp, then head left
past a pair of enemies.  Throw the lamp on the left side of the ladder when you
reach it, then enter the door and quickly climb up to the heart container.
Climb the ladder again once you return, then jump right across the platforms
and enter the door once you reach it.

Go below the block that's right of the jar above you, then carefully jump
(every second jar produces enemies) straight up the platforms and enter the
door at the top.

Grab the key and work your way through the door at the bottom of the previous
area.

Head left until you reach the locked door, then enter it with the key.


Jump to the first platform on your right, then jump carefully from the blue
platform to the ledge on your left.  Head left and jump to the blue platform,
then jump to the platform on your right.  Avoid the enemies as you continue
your climb, then go through the door when you reach it.


Jump to the platform on your right and hug the wall until the enemy passes you,
then climb up the platforms and avoid the shots of the flowers above.  Use a
high jump to climb the chain quickly without being hit, then carefully jump
over the flowers.  Climb the chain above and jump the enemy, then enter the
door to the next area.


Head left along the blue platform, then avoid the enemies as you collect the
group of cherries above.  Use the star when it appears and continue your way
up, then climb the ladder to the top and enter the door.


Pick the sprout and throw the weapon at the enemies to your right, then follow
it.  Jump the gaps beyond, then pick up the crystal and exit this area.


Jump the enemy and head right to reach the boss, beat him with the bombs like
before.  Once you hit him with six bombs the battle will end, then you can
enter the door and exit the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-10) Stage 4-1
###############################################################################

The next three stages are icy so you will slide a lot, but you should get used
to it pretty quickly.  Head right as you avoid the fish and other enemies, then
take the upper route when you can.  Continue right past more enemies and gaps
until you reach some sprouts at the right end of the area, then pick the middle
of the three upper ones for a lamp.  Create a door and collect the heart
container on the other side, then return to daylight.  Run right off the edge
and quickly hold left to land by the sprout, then pick it to take a rocket to
the next area.


Head right and notice the enemy that can shoot fire, these guys are very
annoying.  If you pick up the driver of the machine then it will stop firing
though, so do that whenever you can.  Continue right past more enemies and
enemy machines, then pick up the crystal beyond and exit the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-11) Stage 4-2
###############################################################################

Head right from the start of the stage and climb the vine to reach the next
area.


Jump up the platforms to your right, then head right and jump/duck your way
past the flying enemies.  There are also a few ground-based enemies, but
they're easily jumped.  Once you reach the lower platform continue right past
more flying enemies.  Jump the gap up ahead and enter the door beyond to reach
the next area.


Head left and jump on the whale's tail to reach the sprouts beyond, then pick
the leftmost one for a lamp.  Create a door and collect the heart container on
the other side, then return to daylight and head right.

Ride the spout of water from the whale past the platform and collect the
cherries above, then continue right for another cherry.  Jump up the series of
platforms up ahead and pick the lone sprout on the highest one for a lamp.


*************************************WARP*************************************
Work your way right across five whales, then continue right across the
platforms above.  Work your way to the whale below you and head left to a vase.
Finally create a door as close as possible to the vase, then enter the door and
quickly enter the vase to warp to stage 6-1.
*************************************HERE*************************************


Use the lamp to get some coins, then head right past some enemies as you cross
a number of whales.  Ride the water spout on the last whale to continue right
along the platforms above, then jump the enemy up ahead and continue right.
Pick the lone sprout when you reach it to find a rocket that takes you to the
next area.


Collect the cherry to you right, then pick up the enemy and let the machine
that he was riding roll away.  Throw the enemy on the ground and jump on him,
then ride him across the spikes to your right.  Jump over the spiked enemies
when you reach the other side, then enter the door to the next area.


Head right and get ready for a tough boss battle.  The boss is the same boss
that you've been fighting many times before, but this time you fight him on ice
in addition to him shooting fire every so often.  Basically if you can manage
to stand still the battle will be easier, otherwise it's a crash-course in ice.
Once you hit him three times the battle will end, then you can grab the crystal
and exit the stage.

                               (F-12) Stage 4-3
###############################################################################

From the start, climb the ladder to your right and enter the door at the top.


Ignore the boss to your right, he doesn't carry any items he's just annoying.
Pick the leftmost sprout above you instead for a lamp, then head left and
create a door on the highest platform.  Enter it for a heart container, then
return to daylight and head right past the boss.  Let him fire an egg at you,
then jump on it and ride it right across the water until it hits a wall.
Continue right and jump a gap, then enter a door to reach the next area.


For this area you jump to a lot of icy platforms, but at the same time you
avoid enemies.  It's not as hard as it sounds though, as long as you don't run
too fast at any time you won't slide that much.  Also if you use high jumps in
a couple spots it really helps, just keep an eye out for enemies and you should
be fine.  Once you reach the top you should see a door, enter it to reach the
next area.


Pick the left sprout for a vase, then use high jumps on the clouds to your left
to reach the roof on your right.  Jump the gaps as you work your way to the
second roof further right, then make a door near the right end of it.  Enter
the door and collect the heart container, then return to daylight and enter the
door below you.


Jump on the bird enemy and ride it across spikes and down a shaft until you
reach a door, then enter the door.


Head right or left enough that the enemies come down to your level, then throw
one into the other.  Jump up to the key next and take it to the previous area,
then carefully work your way down to the locked door at the bottom.  Don't
forget that you can kill the enemies with the key and you can drop the key to
get the mask off your back for a few seconds.  Once you reach the bottom, use
the key to get through the locked door.


Avoid the flying enemies as you head right, then enter the door that you find.


Head right and grab the crystal, then continue right and exit this area.


The boss here flies around the room while dropping fireballs on you, he doesn't
move very fast though so you can avoid him pretty easily.  Basically just
through the masks at him until he gets hit three times, at this point he will
split into four small enemies.  Finally hit these enemies with the masks to
beat the boss, then enter the door to exit the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-13) Stage 5-1
###############################################################################

Jump on the platform to your right to avoid the nearby enemy, then continue
right until you reach a flower enemy.  Carefully avoid his shots as you jump
over him, then drop to the ground below and head left.  Jump the gaps along the
way and enter the door when you come to it.


Pick the second sprout from the left for a lamp, then jump the gap with it.
Wait for the first log to surface, then jump right across four of them to a
platform.  Watch the fish to your right and carefully use the three of them to
reach the next platform, then use the log to your right to reach the next
platform.  Jump across three more fish and try to land on the small upper
platform with the sprouts, then create a door and get a heart container on the
other side of it.

Pick the sprouts for a 1up and another lamp, then jump the gap to your right
and use a fish to cross the next gap.  Jump one more gap and wait for the log
to surface, then quickly jump across the pair of logs and jump OVER the wall in
front of you.  Head right until you fall onto the mask, then jump back up to
the area above and create a door on that mask.

It is VERY important that you create the door on one of the masks and not
off-screen above.  If you create the door above and enter it you will get
killed instantly for some reason.

Enter the door and grab the heart container, then pick up a mask and drop to
the ground below.  Pick the left sprout for another lamp, then use it to get
coins from the other sprouts before entering the door to your right.


This boss ONLY shoots fire so you can't rely on eggs to beat him, use the lone
mask instead.  He fires three shots at a time before a brief pause, so use that
pause to grab the mask once you've thrown it.  Otherwise hit him three times
like usual to beat him, then grab the crystal and exit the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-14) Stage 5-2
###############################################################################

Head right and jump to the higher ledge, then climb up the ladder beyond.


Ignore the sprouts as you head right, then jump the enemy on the ground and
avoid the enemies in the trees.  Continue right and jump up to higher ground,
then avoid more enemies until you come to a vase.  Enter the vase and pick the
lone sprout for a bomb, then use it to blow up some of the floor.  Drop down
through the hole and carefully pick the right sprout for a lamp.  Exit the vase
with it and create a door, then grab the heart container and return to
daylight.

Pick a sprout for a vegetable, then head right and use it on the group of
enemies.  Continue right and ride an enemy up a tree so you can jump right,
then continue right as you carefully jump across narrow platforms and enemies.
Avoid the shots of the flower enemy near the last platform and pick the
rightmost of the two sprouts for a POW block, then jump the gap to your right.
Take out the nearby enemies with your block before climbing the vine above.


Climb the vine until you see a pair of bullet-spitting enemies, then carefully
drop onto the cloud to your left.  Get ready to do a high jump, then quickly do
one and climb the left vine at the height of the jump (it's much easier to
avoid the bullets this way).  On the next screen wait for the enemy on your
right to climb below you (but above the bullets), then drop onto him and ride
him all the way to the top of the vine (if an enemy appears above you just
switch to the left vine briefly).  Jump right at the top and enter the door to
reach the next area.


Walk right and pick up the POW block, then get ready for a deadly fall.  Stay
slightly left of the middle of the shaft and you should be fine when the path
splits, then quickly hug the right wall before you land on spikes below.  Hug
the left wall next until you're out of the narrow section, then hold right and
make sure you don't land on the far right spikes.  You should land close to the
door, so just throw away the POW block and enter the door.


Head right and jump the gap, then pick up the annoying fish and throw him at
the boss.  The boss shoots eggs and fire like most of his recent versions, so
just hit him with two more eggs (if you hit him earlier with the fish) to beat
him.  Now you should pick up the crystal and exit the stage to your right in
the usual way.


###############################################################################

Jump onto the ledge to your right and climb up the ladder beyond.


*************************************WARP*************************************
If you are using Mama you can walk to the right edge of the where you are now
and charge a high jump.  Quickly perform the high jump and hold right so you
don't bump the ceiling above you, then go left and pick the sprout for a lamp.
Create a door on the vase and enter it, then go down the vase to warp to stage
7-1.
*************************************HERE*************************************


Head right and start dodging a lot of bombs, then pick the first sprout for a
lamp.  Continue right with it and collect cherries as you go, then grab the
star when it appears and create a door near the group of sprouts ahead.  Enter
the door for a heart container, then return to daylight and jump over the log
platform to your right.

Continue right past more bombs and take the low route as you jump a pair of
gaps, then go right some more and jump over a group of bombs.  Try to get one
to blow up the wall to your right if possible, or just throw one to do it
yourself.  Pick the sprout inside for a bomb, then blow up the wall to your
right with it before using a high jump to reach the ledge above.  Pick the
middle sprout for a lamp, then return to the ground below and create a door
among the cracked walls.  Enter the door for a heart container, then return to
daylight and climb down the ladder to your right.


Head left and pick up one of the two bombs that appear, then rush right and
throw it to destroy a cracked block.  Drop to the area below and pick the far
left sprout for a bomb, then use it to bomb the wall to your left.  Pick the
far right sprout behind you for a lamp, then use it for some coins.

Head left when you return and jump the gap, then pick the sprout for a
vegetable.  Carefully jump the gap while avoiding the flower enemy's shots, I
find it works best to jump over his second shot since he pauses briefly every
two shots.  Kill the flower with your vegetable and enter the door to your
left.


Head right and avoid the enemy as you pick up the mask, then quickly head left
and drop your mask on the small jar to stop enemies spawning from it.  Jump the
enemy that's circling the room and pick up the next mask to your right, then
watch the enemy below as you pick up the mask below you.  Pick up yet another
mask to your right and cover another jar with it, then pick up the mask to your
right.

Beware of the enemy here as you head to the left wall, then start jumping up
the series of platforms above you.  Hug the wall on your right side and time
your jump to avoid the pair of bombs, then use some high jumps to continue your
climb.

When you see a moving flower enemy use the gaps in the wall to avoid his shots
as you wrap-around to either side of the room.  Once the flower falls
off-screen you can continue climbing, but you will meet another moving flower
enemy along the way.  Just out-maneuver him in the same way and continue
climbing to the top, then enter the door once you get there.


Head right and jump the gaps, then avoid the enemy as you head towards a magic
carpet enemy.  Jump on him and steal his carpet, then quickly fly right at a
fairly high height.  If you do this fast enough you shouldn't need to kill the
next magic carpet enemy and steal his carpet in mid-air, instead you can just
fly past him and land on the platform beyond.

Continue right across a number of clouds while you avoid both ground-based and
flying enemies, then jump a couple of gaps and meet the boss.  He does shoot
fire this time but not very often, so just beat him with the usual three eggs.
Pick up his crystal afterwards, then head right and exit this area.

Pick any sprout and use the bomb to blow up part of the wall to your right,
then meet the mouse boss again.  This time there are spikes in the room which
makes things a little more difficult.  However if you use the same strategy
that you used for previous battles with this boss then you should do just fine.
Once you hit the boss with six bombs, you can enter the door that appears to
exit the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-16) Stage 6-1
###############################################################################

Beware of the snakes and other enemies as you head right across the quicksand,
then enter the first vase that you come to.  Pick the sprout inside for a lamp,
then exit the vase and head for the bones on your right.  Create a door on the
bones and enter it, then quickly grab the heart container before it sinks in
the quicksand.

Return to daylight and continue right past the large cactus enemy and some
deadly quicksand, then take a break on the small patch of solid ground by the
tree.  Head right past vases and enemies, then jump to a higher ledge and
continue right past some cacti.  Pick the left sprout for a vegetable that you
can use on the enemy to your right, then pick the other sprout for a lamp.

Head right and use a high jump to get over the cactus enemy, then continue
right past the flower enemy.  Create a door by the sprouts on the far right end
of this area, then enter it for a heart container.  Return to daylight and
enter the door below you to read the next area.


Head right and cross the vases, then avoid the snakes as you enter the fifth
vase from the RIGHT.  Start digging inside and avoid the enemies, then grab the
key at the bottom and exit the vase.  Avoid the mask enemy and drop the key for
a moment if you need to, then head right and enter the locked door.


Head right and grab a mask, then climb the platform to your right and get ready
to fight the boss.  The boss only shoots fire this time so you have to beat him
with the masks.  It's nothing you can't handle by this point though, so just
hit him three times with a mask to beat him.  Collect the crystal as usual,
then head right and exit the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-17) Stage 6-2
###############################################################################

Jump up the ledges to your right, then enter the door at the top.


Quickly pick the sprout in front of you and jump on the enemy below you, then
ride him right and jump over the low-flying enemy in your way to continue your
ride.  Throw your vegetable at the flower enemy when you reach him, then jump
the platform and get back on the enemy.  Charge a high jump and use it to get
onto the ledge up ahead, then pick the left sprout for a lamp.

Create a door and enter it for a heart container, then return to daylight and
quickly grab a vegetable from the other sprout before jumping on the enemy
below you.  He's flying left but you have to backtrack to the start of the
stage for now.  Once back at the start of the stage ride the enemy that you
started with right until you reach the spot where you got the lamp, then jump
to the next platform and quickly return to your enemy on the other side.

Jump the low-flying enemy that gets in your way, then quickly use a high jump
to reach the ledge up ahead.  Take a breather before jumping the gap, then
continue right and enter the door.


Head right and use the masks to fight the boss that you're most familiar with.
Once again he only shoots fire this time, so you have to use the masks.  Once
you hit him three times the battle will end, then you can grab the crystal and
head right to exit the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-18) Stage 6-3
###############################################################################

Climb the ladder in the middle of the room to reach the area above.


***********************************SHORTCUT***********************************
Walk left into the quicksand and hold left against the wall as you sink, you
should start going left under the wall.  Once under be sure to hold left and
keep jumping so you don't die, then enter the door on the other side to reach
the first boss of the stage.
*************************************HERE*************************************


Pick the sprout on your right for a lamp, then create a door on the second set
of bones to your right.  Throw the enemy into the quicksand and enter the door
for a heart container, then return to daylight and ride the cactus enemy right
across the quicksand.  Once on sold ground head right and enter the large door
to reach the next area.


Grab the pair of cherries to your right while you avoid the bombs, then
continue right as you grab more cherries and use ladder to avoid the bombs.
Grab the star when it appears and rush right through the group of enemies, then
take the upper path as you bomb through a number of cracked walls.  Climb down
the ladder when you reach it and continue right, then climb up a vine to reach
the next area.


Climb up a series of vines while avoiding enemies, then take the right vine
when the path forks and there's one long vine on either side of the screen.
Continue your climb and avoid the bullet-spitting enemies on your way up, then
take the left vine when the path splits again to avoid a lot of annoying
enemies.  Continue climbing from here and you should climb into the next area
pretty soon.


Head right and jump the gap, then enter the door to reach the next area.


Pick up the mask to your right and use it on the boss if you wish, he actually
shoots eggs this time so you can use either as a weapon.  The boss does shoot
the odd fireball though so be on the lookout, otherwise hit him three times to
end the battle.  Collect the crystal as usual and enter the mask below to exit
this area.


Head right to meet up with the boss, then avoid his shots as you take the three
rightmost masks and stack them on the right edge of the platform above.  This
blocks the boss's shots from hitting you, then you can simply hit him three
times with the remaining masks to end the battle.  Throw these masks from the
top of the small tower that you built, then enter the door that appears to exit
the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-19) Stage 7-1
###############################################################################

Jump up the platforms, then climb the ladder at the top to reach the next area.


Head right and avoid the enemies as you pass a POW block, then jump past the
tower to your right to attract a flying enemy.  Quickly get on the tower and
charge a high jump, then use it to land on the second flying enemy that should
have followed closely behind the first.  Ride the enemy left and jump over the
high towers as they appear so you can continue left.  Climb the ladder when you
reach it and pick the lone sprout below, then a rocket will take you to the
next area.


Head right for a cherry, then carefully continue right past bullet-spitting
enemies for more cherries.  Once you hit the large tower head left and quickly
weave your way through the clouds while avoiding the enemies and bullets.  You
should walk onto the enemy on the lowest cloud in order to get past him, since
jumping over him just puts you back at the clouds above you.  Head right and
jump to the cloud just past the small tower, then walk off the edge to the
bullet-spitting enemy on your right.  Quickly jump on him and climb the ladder
above to enter the next area.


Jump up the platforms while avoiding the enemies, then climb the ladder on your
left.  Pick up the top mask of the two stacked in front of you to let the enemy
escape, then carefully avoid and kill him.  Kill the other enemy while you're
at it, then start stacking masks on the two that are already stacked on your
right.  Once the stack is about six masks high you should be able to reach the
next platform from the top of it.  Climb either ladder, then jump to the middle
ladder from a cloud.  Carefully climb up past the bullets, then enter the door
at the top.


Go right and pick up the mask, then use it on the boss to your right.  He only
shoots fire this time so you have to use the mask to beat him.  Once you hit
him three times you can pick up the crystal like usual and exit the stage.


###############################################################################
                               (F-20) Stage 7-2
###############################################################################

Jump up the platforms and carefully work your way right past the
bullet-spitting enemies, then continue right and enter the large door.


Let the conveyor belt move you right, then jump the enemies and the gap beyond.
Jump the trio of enemies and bombs up ahead, then continue right and jump over
the flower enemy's shots.  Continue right a little more and jump the next
flower enemy's shots, then climb the chain beyond to reach the next area.


Head left and carefully work your way past the enemies, then climb up the chain
to reach the next area.


Head right and climb the pair of chains, then carefully head left past the
group of enemies and climb the chain beyond.  Duck to avoid the enemies in this
room, then climb the left chain and enter the door at the top.


Climb down the nearby ladder, then hug the right wall as you fall to the
ground.  Climb down the ladder to your left and enter the door there.  Pick up
the right sprout for a lamp, then create a door and enter it for a heart
container.  

Return to the previous area and climb up the series of ladders before taking
the door to the next area.


Climb down the chain, then avoid the enemies once again as you climb up the
chain to your right.  Jump up a series of platforms while carefully avoiding
enemies, then enter the door at the top of the shaft to enter the next area.


Climb the chain to avoid the enemies for a second, then throw the POW block to
kill them.  Climb the chain to your right and ride the conveyer belt as you
duck under a trio of enemies.  Climb down the chain at the end of the conveyor
belt to enter the next area.


Here you get to fight the egg-spitting boss for the last time, unfortunately he
spits fire occasionally AND you have to fight him on a conveyor belt.  Once you
hit him with three eggs he drops a key, so pick it up and enter the door to the
next area.


Use the key to repeatedly kill enemies on either side of you, this will
generate some hearts which you can then collect.  Once you are at full health
use the key to enter the locked door.


Walk right past the masks and pick up the crystal, then make sure you DON'T try
to exit the area.  The giant mask that you would normally walk through comes to
life and starts flying around the room.  Luckily he doesn't move very fast so
you can jump over him pretty easily.  Pick up either of the masks in the room
and throw them at the boss to hit him.  Once you hit him three times he will
open his mouth, then you need to quickly enter him or he'll start attacking
again.


Head right and drop off the ledge, then get ready for the final boss battle of
the game.  Basically the boss walks back and forth on his platform while firing
bursts of deadly shots.  While this is going on three machines in the middle of
the room toss out vegetables.  The boss's shots can obviously harm you, but
they can also destroy the vegetables.

What you need to do is first get a vegetable, I find it easiest to just walk
around on the ground and catch one from below.  Once you have a vegetable you
need to jump to the floating platforms above.  You then need to throw the
vegetable at the boss, but you can only hurt him if the vegetable goes in his
mouth when it's open.

This is hard enough to do already, but the boss fires shots at you when his
mouth is open.  So you could possibly get hit and your vegetable might get hit
as well.  However there is a way around this, you can simply jump over the boss
from the edge of the right platform when he walks close to you.  Face left
after landing, then simply throw a vegetable into his mouth from here without
worrying about getting hit.

Once you hit the boss five times the battle will end, then you can enter the
door that appears and watch a partial ending.

                                (I) EXPERIMENTAL
###############################################################################

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!
