                                    INTRODUCTION
                               =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    This game has got to be one of the best games for the Nintendo Gameboy. I have 
    4 gaming systems with me. A PC, the Gameboy, Super Nintendo (SNES), and the 
    Sony Playstation (PSX). My favorite RPG for PC is Diablo (for me, this game is 
    a RPG). For Gameboy, this one. For the Super Nintendo, Chrono Trigger. For the 
    Playstation, Chrono Cross. 
    
    This game was the FIRST RPG Iíve played and this game is the reason why I love 
    RPG games the most (it doesnít matter what console as long as it is good and 
    well worth the money). This is also the game that introduced me to the 
    HP/MP/EXP/character stats system. I think I will be able to accomplish this 
    far earlier that the time I spent with my other guides for console games. Now, 
    I can type and play at the same time. 
    
    On to the game. The Tree of Mana sits on top of the clouds at Mount Illusia. 
    It is foretold that this tree gives immense power to anyone who touches it. 
    Once, Vandole tried to use this power for evil. Although they did get their 
    hands on the Tree, the Gemma Knights were able to abolish them. The Gemma 
    Knights are the protectors of the Mana Tree and the Mana Family as well as for 
    the whole world. Now, a new empire sets it goal at getting the power of the 
    Mana Tree. Again, to be used for evil purposes. Itís up to our Hero to fight 
    to protect the Mana Tree and the World.

    --------------
    C. GAME BASICS
    --------------
    
    1. Moving About
    ---------------
    
    Basically, you can move around with the directional pad. You cannot 
    walkthrough walls, mountains, walk on water (youíll be able to navigate the 
    waters in the later parts of the game).
    
    On the field or inside dungeons, youíll see different kinds of enemies roaming 
    around. If you touch one of these, you will receive damage at once. There are 
    various ways of getting through enemies. First, just slash it will your weapon 
    (although some enemies are not affected with certain types of weapons). 
    Second, just go around it to prevent damage and save time. Lastly, just push 
    them. You will be able to push an enemy, only if your level is higher than 
    that monster (you canít see the level of the enemy though).  
    
    In the world map, youíll also see some towns with people in it. You can talk 
    to them for information regarding where to go next. Or just simple say hello 
    to each other. 
    
    Basically thatís all you have to do in the game besides attacking. Try to go 
    with the flow of the story. It will excite you at the same time, you will be 
    able to finish the game.
    
    2. Saving and Loading your game
    -------------------------------
    
    The GamePak (Gameboy Cartridge) of Final Fantasy Adventure has 2 Slots. You 
    can save 1 Game for every slot. Note that, both saves can be from the same 
    game or from 2 distinct games. 
    
    For loading games, you can only do that at the main menu by selecting the 
    continue option. There is no Load command in the in-game menus. So, youíll 
    have to reset. Press the A, B, Select, and Start buttons at the same time. 
    Note that doing this wonít save your game. 
    
    3. Attacking and Battle System
    ------------------------------
    
    Attacking in Final Fantasy Adventure is pretty basic. Go to an enemy within 
    range of your weapon and then press the A button. Your character will attack 
    using your weapon. If it hits the enemy, itís HP will go down (the HP of the 
    enemy cannot be seen). If the enemyís HP reaches 0, it will die and will 
    disappear from your sight. 
    
    If ever your HP reaches 0, the Game will be over. And remember, once youíre in 
    a new area, expect tougher enemies!
    
    4. Magic System (Magic List)
    ----------------------------
    
    There are only 8 Magic abilities for Final Fantasy Adventure. Here they are:
    
    Cure  = Restores your characterís HP (2 MP)
    Heal  = Remove any Status Ailment (except Moog) (1 MP)
    Slep  = It lullís enemies within the area into sleep (some are impervious
            to this magic spell (1 MP)
    Mute  = This will disable the casting abilities of your enemy. Some cannot
            Be inflicted with this Magic Spell (1 MP)
    Fire  = Throw a small fireball to the nearest enemy. This fireball will 
            Automatically chase your enemy even outside the screen area of the 
            Gameboy. (1 MP)
    Ice   = Throws a small IceBerg on your enemies. Some enemies turn into 
            Snowmen after being hit by the IceBerg. You can then push them to
            Activate floor switches. IceBerg can be controlled by using the 
            Directional pad. If you accidentally hit a wall, the IceBerg will  
            Disappear. (2 MP)
    Lit   = Throws a Lightning Bolt straight to the enemies in front of you.
            (2 MP)
    Nuke  = Strongest Magic Attack. Hurls a ball of Nuclear Energy at your
            Enemies. It travels in a straight line only though. (3 MP)
    
    Certain types of Magic do not affect some enemies. Example, fire-based enemies 
    are not harmed by your Fire Spell. Some enemies also have a very high Magic 
    Rating and cannot be inflicted with the Slep and Mute Spell. 
    
    To acquire Magic spells, most of them can be read from Magic Books and then 
    learned by your character. The Nuke Magic, can be obtained by beating Death.
    
    To use a Magic spell, you MUST equip it first. Press the Start button and 
    choose the Magic option. Now, select the magic you want to equip. You can now 
    press the B button to execute the magic spell. Take note always of your 
    available MP. If it reaches 0, you cannot use any magic anymore. 
    
    The power of the Magic Spell also depends on your Will. If the Will Bar below 
    the screen is full, you can unleash the strongest effect/damage of your magic 
    spell. 
    
    5. Items 
    --------
    
    Items are very important in the game. Especially the Keys. To be able to use 
    an item, you MUST equip it first by selecting it in the Item Sub-Menu. Then 
    use it by using the B button. Some items, like the key, are used 
    automatically.
    
    Each of your items has a maximum quantity. Example, Pure Item is MAXed out at 
    3. You can have 16 different items in your inventory. You can have 3 Pure 
    Items with 3 quantities each. If you use it up, it will disappear from your 
    inventory (of course!). 
    
    You can acquire items, from Item Shops, spoils from enemies, chest and others 
    are acquired automatically. 
    
    6. Equipments
    -------------
    
    Equipments play a very important role as to how your character will fare with 
    the enemies in the game. Having weak weapons will give you a long time to 
    defeat an enemy. The same goes for the armors, helmets and Shields. The weaker 
    they are, the bigger the damage you get. So, make it a basic rule that, you 
    acquire every new equipment from shops if you reach a new town.
    
    Another note on Shields. If your characterís Level is high enough. Letís say 
    about 70. You can push the pathetic enemies out of your way. If you are weak, 
    youíll get damage. 
    
    7. Non-Playable Characters (NPCs)
    ---------------------------------
    
    In Final Fantasy Adventure, you also have other characters that can help you 
    in your journey. Although, they are very helpful, you cannot control them. 
    They have a quite stupid AI. They attack walls and trees, and even thin air 
    for crying out loud. There is a concept here which I like most about the NPCs. 
    It is your ability to ASK. If you ASK your NPCs, they will do their special 
    abilities. Here are the infos about the NPCs in the game. Take note that if a 
    NPC kills an enemy, its experience points will still be added to you.

    8. Leveling Up
    --------------
    
    The level up system here is quite different. You can create your own type of 
    character with level ups. You can create a very powerful character in terms of 
    physical attacks. You can also create a very powerful magician with nasty 
    magic attacks. 
    
    When your character levels up, after gaining a specific amount of Experience, 
    you must choose from 4 types. 
    
    Power - This will increase the Power rating of your character. This will
            make and battle with monsters easier.
    
    Stamina - This level up concentrates on your defense. You can now have less
              damage from enemy attacks. And youíll have a big HP boost.
    
    Wisdom - This focuses on the Magic ratings of your characters. This level up
             Will give you additional MP plus additional damage caused by your
             Magic attacks to your enemies. 
    
    Will - Leveling up your Will, lessens the time that your Will Bar fills up. 
    
    
    9. MAX Attacks
    --------------
    
    When your Will Bar, at the bottom of the screen, fills up, you can use your 
    weaponsí MAX Attack. Hereís what will happen to your weapons during a MAX 
    Attack: (Note that MAX attacks increase the amount of damage you inflict on 
    your enemies)
    
    Sword - There are 2 types of MAX attack for the sword.
            1. Charge Attack - Press the A Button + Directional pad. Your 
                    character will charge pointing to the direction depending
                    on what direction you pushed in the Directional pad.
            2. Spin Attack - Press and hold the A button. This will make your
                    character spin his sword. During the spinning of your
                    character, you can move him around by pressing the 
                    directional pad.
    
    Axe - At MAX, your character will throw the Axe in front of him. Doing this,
          , the thrown Axe can still chop down trees. 
    
    Chain - At MAX, the chain will be longer than usual. This will enable you to 
            reach poles which you cannot reach during normal chain attacks.
    
    Spear - At MAX, the Spear will be thrown in the direction your pushed on the
            directional pad.
    
    Sickle - At MAX, the area of the spin of the Sickle will become wider. 
             You can still cut off Herbs. 
    
    Morning Star - At MAX, the length of the Morning Star will be much more 
                   Longer than normal. 
    
    
    ------------------
    D. CHARACTER STATS
    ------------------
    
    The Character Stat of your Character determines how your characters fare with 
    the enemies around him. The higher his stat, the higher is his chance of 
    beating stronger opponents. Here are the different characters stats and their 
    explanations:
    
    HP = Hit Points. This is the total amount of damage your character can 
         endure. If it reaches 0, your character will be dead. 
    MP = Magic Points. This determines the total number of Magic you can use. 
         Take note also that not all magic abilities need 1 MP, some needs more.
    E = Experience. The total experience your character gained from fighting 
        enemies. After reaching a certain amount of Experience, your characterís
        stats will go up. 
    AP = The total attack power. This determines how strong your character is at
         beating opponents. The higher this stat is, the easier the enemies can
         be beaten.
    DP = The total defense power. This stat determines how your character 
         endures magic and physical attacks. The higher the DP is, the lesser
         the HP loss.
    Stamn = This is just like the DP. 
    Power = This is just like the AP.
    Wisdm = This will determine how strong your magic attacks will be. This also
            affects your total MP.
    Will = this determines how fast your Will Power Bar fills up. 
    
    
    --------------------
    E. STATUS CONDITIONS
    --------------------
    
    The status conditions mainly reflect the status of your character in the 
    battlefield. Some conditions affect how your character attacks or defends. 
    Sometimes, conditions affect the stats of your character. Here are the 
    different status conditions with their explanation and Cure.
    
    POIS
    ----
    Poisoned Status. The HP of your character will slowly deplete. To cure it, use 
    the item ďPureĒ, or use the Magic ďHealĒ. 
    
    MOOG
    ----
    Moogle Condition. Your DP will drop to 0 therefore, even the weakest enemies 
    will deal quite a big damage to you. Youíll turn into an image of the moogle 
    in this condition. There is no known item that can cure it. Although there is 
    a moogle item, you canít use it during Moog. There 2 known ways to cure it. 
    First, just let time pass by. Second, ASK your chocobo.
    
    STON
    ----
    Stone Condition. Your character will be petrified and cannot move. This makes 
    you very vulnerable to enemy attacks. In the contrary, you can still attack in 
    place. To cure it, use the item ďSoftĒ or use the magic ďHealĒ. You can also 
    ASK Amanda to cure it for you. 
    
    DARK
    ----
    Darkness Condition. During this time, your screen will be dark and you can 
    barely see the field/room. You can also see the enemies but itís really 
    confusing. To cure it, use the item ďEyedropĒ, or use the Magic ďHealĒ.

    =========
    BEGINNING
    =========
    
    After the rolling of the Prologue, itís time to name our Hero. There isnít any 
    default name given, so you can choose whatever name you like. For the sake of 
    the walkthrough, letís name it Sumo, just like whatís in the Manual. After 
    that, name the Heroine of the game. For the sake of the walkthrough, letís use 
    the name Fuji that is also used in the manual. After naming both of them, 
    youíll be taken into an arena. Youíll start off at Level 1 with 19 HPs, 6 MPs, 
    and 50 GP (monetary unit). And then, you will have to beat the Jackal. 
    
    BOSS: JACKAL
    #############################################################################
    EXP gained:         0
    GP:                 0
    Attacks:            none!
    Preferred Weapon:   Sword (no choice!)
    
    This Boss has a very low intelligence. It doesnít attack you. It will just 
    walk in a ĎWí like pattern. From where you are standing, youíre safe. Press 
    the Attack button and youíll kill it with 8 slashes. 
    #############################################################################
    
    After the battle with the Jackal, youíll see a sad scene where Willy, Sumoís 
    friend, dies after a fight with the monster. For his last words, he will tell 
    you that the Gemma Knights must know what happened. Sumo will be confused. He 
    will then tell you to go to Bogard at the Falls. Then, Willy will pass away. 
    Head up, through the door, to the area to the north. Here, youíll see Amanda 
    who wants to go home and see her little brother. The Man will talk about the 
    entrance of the monsters. After talking to them, head right to the next 
    screen. In here, use the ladder. In this next screen, continue heading left 
    until you meet another Jackal. Use the same strategy against it. After the 
    fight, notice that the entrance of the monster is open. Head there are youíll 
    find yourself outside the premises of the castle. After regaining control of 
    Sumo, head left to the next area. Here, youíll see Julius and Dark Lord 
    talking about how to go up the falls and reach the Tree of Mana. Then Julius 
    will tell Dark Lord that a girl has the key. After that, Julius will 
    disappear. Dark Lord now notices you. Youíll then automatically run up to a 
    cliff. Here, Dark Lord will push you down! (Ahhh! How did Sumo survive?) After 
    falling, youíll regain control of Sumo again, but now you are in the World 
    Map. 
    
    =====
    WORLD
    =====
    
    For a World Map, I created a quick reference at the maps section. Check it 
    out. You can also check it out if you get lost. Back to the walkthrough. From 
    your starting point, head right to the next screen. After that, head right 
    again to the next screen. From here, go south. After that, so south once more. 
    In this area, the only way is to the right. So, go right to the next area. 
    From here, go right again. In this area, youíll see a girl and a wounded boy 
    seeking for help. Defeat ALL monsters in this screen only. After defeating 
    every monster (the clue is that there will be no more music), talk to the 
    wounded boy. His name is Hasim. He will also tell you to take the girl with 
    you to Bogard (the same man Willy spoke of). After that, Hasim will pass away. 
    You will then offer the girl to come with you to see Bogard. The girl will 
    join you. She is the Heroine in the game, Fuji. At this point, you finally 
    have an NPC (non-playable character) with you. You can now ask her if your HP 
    is low and she will gradually heal you. After taking her along, go back to the 
    screen to the left. After that, go up to the screen to the north. Here, youíll 
    find the entrance to the Town of Topple which is to the north. If you got lost 
    somehow, the entrance to Topple is located on coordinates 8I in my world map 
    at the Maps section.

    TOPPLE

    This is quite a small village. Upon entering the Village, youíll see the Inn 
    right away. You can rest here for 10GP. Afterwards, head next screen to the 
    left. Then, go north to another screen. Youíll find the Item and Weapon Shops 
    here. You can buy a more powerful helmet here. It costs 140 GPs. If you donít 
    have enough, I suggest that you leave the town first, beat some enemies, and 
    come back with 140 GPs. After buying the helmet, sell your Bronze ones. After 
    that, go inside the Item Shop and buy 2 Sets of Keys (each set contains 4) for 
    30 GPs. After doing these, leave Topple.

    Item:
      Mattock
    
    Upon entering, youíll see an old man to the left. If you talk to him, he will 
    just walk away from you. But on the third time, he will notice the pendant of 
    Fuji. Then, he will finally reveal himself as Bogard. He will talk about what 
    happened years ago when a woman, who wore the pendant, gave the Gemma knights 
    hope and was finally able to beat Vandole. After that, he will tell you go get 
    the Mattock in the north room. After that, he will tell you that you must use 
    the mattock in the caves to the east and meet a man named Cibba at the town of 
    Wendel. When the door opens, go in and take the Mattock. Now, leave Bogardís

    youíll get the Bronze Key. Now, head back north 1 screen. Youíll see a door.

    Upon entering, youíll see a man. Talk to him and he will tell you that a lot 
    of girls disappeared at Kettís. He will offer you his help. Accept his help. 
    After joining, head north first. And then, to the left one screen. Here, step 
    on the switch at the bottom of the screen. A ladder leading down will show up 
    at the top left of the screen. Go down the ladder. In this new screen, youíll 
    see the door where you came in and a door at the bottom. Now, move one screen 
    to the right. Climb down the vine to be able to reach the bottom door in the 
    screen to the left. Go in. Here, go right one screen. Now, if you strike the 
    bottom center wall, youíll here a cranking sound. Use your mattock to destroy 
    the wall and reveal a new path. Now, go down south to the next screen. In 
    here, get the chest that you see in the middle of the screen. Youíll receive 
    the Sickle. You can go back as the floor will pull you back in. So, equip the 
    sickle and hack away the herbs. You can now leave the room. Now, return back 
    to the first room (where you first saw the man). Now, head south one screen. 
    Here, the left wall can be destroyed. Use your mattock to destroy it then head 
    left one screen. Here, there is a door to the north. Use a key (if you have at 
    least 4 of them) and enter the door. Youíll see a chest in the middle. Push 
    the chest into the switch on the lower left. A ladder going down will appear 
    at the upper right. Climb that ladder. Youíll reach a small pond. If you walk 
    below it, your HP and MP will be restored completely. Letís call it the 
    Recovery Pond. Now, head back up the ladder and then move one screen to the 
    south. And then, head left two screens. From here, go up one screen. Youíll 
    see a door to the right which is locked. Use your key and then enter it. 
    Inside, youíll be automatically locked in. Defeat all enemies on the screen 
    and a chest will appear. It contains an Iron Shield. After getting the shield, 
    go back one screen and then go up one screen. In here, go right one screen. 
    Youíll see a big rock at the upper right corner. Use your mattock to destroy 
    it and it will reveal a ladder leading down. Here, go south one screen (go 
    around the vines). And then, go left one screen and enter the doorway that you 
    will see. In this new area, head left one screen then south one screen. Youíll 
    see a locked door to the right. Use the key and enter that door. Here youíll 
    see a very simple puzzle. Letís call those clear square floors as ďpanelsĒ for 
    the sake of this walkthrough. Now, walk on the topmost panel to reach the 
    upper switch. Now, use your mattock to break the rocks. After that, break the 
    lower set of rocks to reach the lower floor switch. Upon switching both floor 
    switches, a ladder leading down will appear on the lower right corner. Go down 
    the ladder. Now, prepare yourself for a REAL boss. After preparation, head 
    right to the next screen. Youíll meet...
    
    BOSS: 2-HEADED DRAGON
    #############################################################################
    EXP gained:         10
    GP:                 95
    Attacks:            Fireballs
    Preferred Weapon:   Sickle
    
    This battle will be hard, if you donít know what to do. The only way to damage 
    it is to hit it in the head. The best strategy here is to use the sickle and 
    always stay below the hydra. Doing this, when the hydra comes forward, you can 
    hit it with the sickle away from the path of the fireballs. After a few hits, 
    it will go down. 
    
    If you are cornered, and you have the Iron Shield, you can just stand in front 
    of the fireballs (facing their direction) and the shield will negate it. In 
    simpler terms, you can block the fireballs. Of course, you canít block the 
    head of the Dragon when it comes near you.
    #############################################################################
    
    After the fight, youíll see 2 chests appear in the middle. The first chest 
    contains your second magic, Fire. After getting the chest, hack it away and 
    get the second chest for the Mirror. The man will tell you to show it to the 
    guy at Kettís. After that, the man will leave and youíll be taken 
    automatically to the world map. Head to Kettís right away. Make sure to 
    prepare your character again.

    Equipment:
      Chain Flail
    Magic:
      Sleep
    
    Now, Equip your mirror. Itís in the items inventory. And then, talk to the 
    man. It will go berserk and will change into a wolf man. Just use your sickle 
    to push it away from you at the same time damaging it. Iíd like to point out 
    that this enemy is not a boss (youíll know why later). After beating this 
    enemy, you can now enter the room to the right. So, go right two screens. 
    Then, go up one screen. And then, to the left one screen. In this room, use 
    the ladder that is going up. Now, go south one screen. Here, youíll see 6 
    blocks. If you attack the right wall, youíll hear a clink. Blast that wall 
    with your Mattock. After blasting away the wall, head right to the next 
    screen. And then, go up one screen. And then, to the right one screen and to 
    the south two screens. Here, go left one screen. In this room, break the jar 
    to reach the switch in the middle. Step on it and a ladder leading down will 
    appear in the lower right. Go down that ladder. Here, go around the spikes and 
    go right one screen. Next, go up one screen. Here, use a key to open the north 
    door and go through it. Now, youíll see a chest. Get it for the Chain Flail! 
    You will be trapped, but to no avail, use your new Chain Flail on the pole to 
    the right. Youíll be able to get out. Now, go around and step on the switch to 
    remove the block. Go back to where you broke the Jar in order to step on the 
    middle switch. Now, use the Ladder Going up on the upper right corner of the 
    room. Now, go left and use your Chain Flail to cross the gap. Move on to the 
    left and climb down the ladder at the end. And then, head left one screen and 
    then up one screen. Here, thereís a gap on the floor. First of all, you MUST 
    wait until your will power to fill up. Then, use the chain on the pole on the 
    other side. Youíll never reach it when using normal chain attacks. If you fell 
    down the gap, head north and climb the ladder on the upper right. In the next 
    area, head down south. Youíll be in the room where the gap is. From here, head 
    right two screens and then up one screen. Next, left one screen. Here, push 
    the chest onto the switch. A ladder will appear on the upper right. Use the 
    ladder to go down. Here, use a Mattock and destroy the jar on the lower right. 
    Go down the newly revealed ladder. Here, go around the fence and to the right 
    one screen. Here, use a Key to open the south door then go in. There are 
    caskets here. Go to the 2nd from the right casket on the lowest row. Youíll 
    now get Fuji back. Now, head all the way back to the very beginning (where you 
    showed the mirror to the man who turned into a monster). 
    
    If, however, you got lost, hereís the instruction on how to get back. From the 
    caskets, head up one room then left one room. Use the ladder. In the new room, 
    use the top right ladder. And then, one to the right, one down, one to the 
    left, and then one down again. Here, use the ladder. Next, go right and cross 
    the gap. Climb down the ladders at the end. Next, go right one screen and then 
    go north 2 screens. And then, one screen to the left then one screen to the 
    south. After that, head left one screen then north one screen. Use the ladder 
    here. Next, walk around the fence and go right one screen. Now, head south one 
    screen then left one screen. Here, prepare your character for a boss battle. 
    After preparing, head to the next screen to the left. Youíll now fight Mr. 
    Lee.
    
    BOSS: MR. LEE

    Attacks:            Bats
    Preferred Weapon:   Chain
    Spoils:             Magic Book of Sleep (Slep Magic)
    
    This battle isnít hard at all, especially with the Chain flail at your 
    disposal. You notice that the Vampire (Mr. Lee), will move to 4 locations on 
    the screen. Check the diagram below (Heíll move to one of those check marks):
    
     -------
    |   x   |
    |x     x|
    |   x   |
     -------
    
    His attacks are plain and simple. Once he stops moving, heíll open his cape 
    and bats will come right after you. You can block the bats with your shield 
    though. 
    
    To attack him, target his body not his wings :) If youíre far enough from him, 
    you can also attack the bats at the same time damaging him. Trust me, heís 
    easy.
    #############################################################################
    
    After beating Mr. Lee and gaining the Magic Book of Sleep, after a very short 
    conversation between Fuji and Sumo, youíll be taken automatically outside of 
    Kettís. Itís now time to head to Wendel.

    from the item shop. After that, head to Cibbaís place. In here, just continue 
    moving north until you see Cibba. After you meet him, an automatic scene will 
    take place. Cibba will show something to you. Youíll see the real mother of 
    Fuji. Also, youíll now know that Fuji is a member of the Mana Family. Her 
    mother sealed the waterfalls that lead to the Mana Tree with the pendant Fuji 
    is wearing. After that, something wrong will happen. The man who helped you 
    before will come in and tells you that Glaive is attacking! Then, youíll be 
    taken automatically just outside Cibbaís place. If you talk to the wounded 
    man, heíll tell you that the man who just passed by attacked him. Quickly, 
    head outside of Wendel. Donít worry about the enemies, theyíre pathetic. 
    Outside, youíll see a horrible sight. The man who helped you out in the Cave 
    of Marsh turns out to be Julius himself. He saw what happened inside and 
    finally kidnapped Fuji. You canít do anything as he is very strong. Heíll beat 
    you up and then heíll leave. Then, youíll wake up at Cibbaís Room. Cibba will

    the Oil, leave the store. From the store, head North one screen. Here, use 
    your chain again to grab that pole. Next, go north two screens. In here, equip

    Items:
      Silver
    
    Upon entrance, youíll see a small cart to the left. First, equip the Oil that 
    you bought a while ago. Now, follow my instructions carefully. This might get 
    very confusing and even frustrating. If youíre ready, equip your Sickle and go 
    to the cart. It will then move along the tracks automatically. 
    
    After boarding the cart, it will go left two screens. Here, thereís a switch, 
    but donít do anything to it. The cart will then continue to the left for 
    another two screen. And then, itíll go down south one screen. Now, Press and 
    Hold Up + Right on the Directional Pad. The cart will now go one screen to the 
    right. As the screen, changes, press the Attack button like crazy! This will 
    enable you to activate the switch. After successfully activating the switch, 
    press and hold Down + Right on the directional pad. The cart will now go south 
    one screen. Like before, just as the screen changes, press the Attack button 
    like crazy while holding the Down+Right on the Directional Pad. This will 
    activate another switch. After successfully activating the switch, the cart 
    will go left two screens. It will hit a rock and youíll fall down a dark hole. 
    If you however, missed the switches, donít worry, the cart will go back to 
    that place again. 
    
    After falling down the hole, youíll see Watts. Heíll join you as an NPC to 
    guide you through the cave. Remember that when youíre low on supplies, you can 
    ASK Watts and heíll let you shop for items.
    
    Letís move on. From where you saw Watts, head north one screen, and then to 
    the right one screen. In here, there are passages to the right (a breakable 
    wall) and to the south. Letís head south first.
    
    Use your Mattock to break the rocks then move on south to the next screen. 
    Hereís youíll see a recovery spring. After healing, head back to the north one 
    screen and then, break the wall to the right and go right one screen. Here, 
    there are 2 jars and slippery floors. Break the right jar, step on the switch 
    and slide to the right towards the ladder leading down. Here, go left two 
    screens. And then, go up the entrance. In this new area, head left one screen. 
    And then, north one screen. Use the ladder leading up. In this area, head one 
    screen to the left. Now, use the ladder leading down. Now, youíll see a ladder 
    to the right leading down. Prepare your character first for a boss fight.

    Attacks:            Surprise!
    Preferred Weapon:   Chain
    
    This battle will be fairly easy. Just remember the pattern it does. It will 
    move in a S formation. Always remember that it can only be damaged by hitting 
    itís head. Any attack to the body is null. He has only one attack (which I 
    think is intentionally created by Square). After you beat him, as with most of 
    the bosses, itís body will explode. The explosion can hurt your character. The 
    Magapede, due to its size, especially its length, will scatter the explosion 
    in a very wide area so, right after you hear the explosion of the monster, 
    quickly move away from it! Take note that the head will follow you after you 
    kill it :)
    #############################################################################
    
    After beating the Megapede, get the Silver from the chest. Then, youíll be 
    automatically taken outside the Mine. Here, Watts will take care of the 
    Silver. Heíll tell you that he will forge some armors and sword using the 
    Silver so that you can equip it and be able to enter Gaia. Watts will now exit 
    to the right.

    screen. Here, go inside the door that youíll see. Inside, go left three 
    screen. And then, go up one screen. Next, go right to the next screen. Climb

    and then go south one screen. Here, kill all the werewolves on the left side 
    first. After killing all of them, step on the switch on the upper right. This 
    will open the fence on the left side. Now, step on the upper left switch. A 
    ladder will appear. Use it to go down to the next area. Here, go left two 
    screens. Now, equip a key and use it on the south door and then enter the 
    room. Youíll see Fuji inside. Go to the fence and youíll talk to her. Youíll 
    hear that the Airship is ready to leave. You will now have a plan to save 
    Fuji. The window. So, after talking to Fuji, leave the room. Before you leave, 
    Bogard will stay behind to watch over Fuji while you find your way to the 
    window outside.
    
    Now, go all the way to the north until you enter the room with a bed. Use it 
    to regain all your HPs and MPs. After that, go south one screen. And then, go

    Youíll fall on one of the houses in Menos. Then, youíll see that it is 
    Amandaís house. If you do not remember, Amanda was the girl you saw in the 
    very beginning of the game (Right after Willy passed away). Then, youíll see 
    Amanda take away the pendant. When you wake up, Sumo will notice that the 
    pendant is gone. When you regain control of Sumo, leave the house. Thereís a 
    stronger weapon here in Menos. From the house of Amanda, the Weapon Shop is to 
    the left. If you want items, it is one screen to the right from Amandaís 
    House. After buying items and equipments, leave Menos.

    WORLD
    =====
    
    From Menos, go south two screen. Here, you can either cross the bridge to the 
    right or go left to the other screen. Letís get an important character first. 
    So, cross the bridge to the right and go north one screen. Here, just go to 
    the right one screen. Cross the bridge and go north two screens. Next, go left 
    one screen and then north two screens. And then, go right one screen. Youíll 
    notice that this is where you fell at the beginning of the game. Now, go south 
    one screen and then one screen to the right. Here, equip your chain and cross 
    the gap. Examine the egg and it will hatch. Itís a Chocobo! It will follow you 
    because it thinks that you are its mother. You now have a New NPC, the 
    Chocobo! If you ASK, it will give you a ride. Youíll be much faster and safer 
    because enemies cannot harm you if you are on a chocobo.
    
    Now, letís head back to the first bridge you saw after leaving Menos. For 
    directions, here it is: from the Chocoboís place, use the chain to cross the 
    gap. Go left to the next screen. Go up one screen, then left one screen, and 
    then south two screens. Next, go right one screen and then to the south two 
    screens. Now, go left one screen and then south one screen. Here, cross the 
    bridge and go left one screen. If you go up, youíll be back at Menos. In this 
    new area, go left one screen. Next, go north two screens. And then, go left 
    one screen, then north one screen. Enter the town of Jadd. Donít worry about 
    your chocobo it wonít run.

    JADD

    Upon entering, youíll notice that the whole town is quiet. Itís because a 
    certain Davias rules the town. First of all, letís head for the weapon shop as 
    there are powerful versions of equipments here, the Gold Equipments. From the 
    entrance, go north one screen. Youíll see the Weapon Shop beside the Inn. You 
    can rest in the Inn if you want. After that, go to the Weapon Shop and buy 
    Gold equipments. This will protect you from the enemies in this area. For the 
    items, from the Weapon Shop, go right one screen. Youíll see the Item Shop 
    Here. Now, if you talk to the kid, it will give you a hint on how to open the 
    Cave of Oasis. You must give him Fangs though. You can get fangs from the 
    Geckoís living in the desert. Itís very rarely though, that they drop these 
    item. If you got Fangs, and talked to him, he will say ďPalms trees and an 8Ē. 
    After buying and equipping your character, leave Jadd.

    WORLD
    =====
    
    In the world map, talk to your Chocobo Immediately. If you did not talk to it, 
    it will not join you again. So, choose to take your chocobo. Now, letís head 
    for the Cave of Oasis. From Jadd, go south one screen. And then, go right one 
    screen. Then, go south two screens. Youíll see the Gecko here. If you beat it, 
    you might be lucky enough to get a Fang. If you got one, bring it back to the 
    kid near the Item Shop in Jadd. It will give you the clue to the Cave of 
    Oasis. Letís move on. From the place with the Gecko, go left one screen. And 
    then go south one screen. Hereís another place with Geckos. Now, go right one 
    screen. You see a lot of palms trees right? Itís because the cave of Oasis, 
    also known as the Cave of Medusa. Now, letís talk about the clue of the Kid. 
    Palm trees and an 8. Hmm... There are 2 trees here. What should you do? Itís 
    easy. Take a look at the diagram.
    
      xxxxx
      xTxTx
      xxxxx
    
    The 2 Ts represent the 2 trees in the middle. The xís is the pattern you 
    should walk. See, itís an 8. Walk around the trees making a pattern like an 
    8,just as in the diagram. If done correctly, the Cave of Medusa will now open. 
    So, go inside the Cave.

    CAVE OF MEDUSA

    Magic:
      Magic Book of Ice
    
    Upon entering, youíll see Amanda. Sumo will ask Amanda why she took the 
    pendant. Amanda took it so that he could give it to Davias and free her 
    brother from Daviasí Curse. And then, Amanda will now join you as a NPC. Now, 
    head south one screen. In here, equip your Mattock and destroy the wall in the 
    south wall. Then, go south one screen. And then, head left two screen then go 
    south one screen. Next, head left two screens. Now, go up one screen. If you 
    open the door to the left, you can see a recovery spring inside. After using 
    it, if necessary, go back and go north two screen. Now, go left one screen and 
    then go south one screen. Youíll get a Gold Armor. Now, go back up one screen 
    and then one screen to the right. Here, continue moving by going up one 
    screen. Here, equip your chain. Then, go to the slippery floor which is at the 
    very bottom. Youíll be taken to the switch which will open the right door. 
    Now, use your chain at the pole at once, then go right one screen through the 
    newly opened door. Here, youíll receive the Magic Book of Ice.
    
    After receiving the Ice Magic, go left one screen. And then, go south four 
    screens. Here, go right one screen. Equip your Mattock and destroy the wall to 
    the north. Then, go up one screen. Here, youíll see a snowman. Push the 
    snowman by going behind it and pressing the directional pad. Push it to the 
    north past the slippery floors. Now, push it to the switch on the upper left. 
    Once there, the door to the north will open. If you somehow destroyed the 
    Snowman, just leave the room and go back in. A new snowman should be there. 
    After opening the door, go up one screen. Here, youíll see another switch, but 
    there are no snowmen around except for spiders. Now, use your newly gained Ice 
    Magic on one of the spiders. It will turn into a snowman! Take note that YOU 
    CAN CONTROL the ice as it travels! But you cannot stop it from moving. If it 
    hits a wall itís gone. Letís continue. After turning one of the spiders into a 
    snowman, push it to the switch. The north door will now open. So, go north one 
    screen. Here, use the ladder.
    
    In this new area, go north one screen. Then, use the ladder on top. Now, 
    prepare your character for a boss! After preparing, go left one screen.
    
    BOSS: MEDUSA 
    #############################################################################
    EXP gained:         92
    GP:                 70
    Attacks:            Snakes
    Preferred Weapon:   Chain
    
    This battle will be at an average difficulty. I recommend using the chain as 
    it has a very long range and attack rate. To defeat Medusa, you have to hit 
    her head as many times as you could. Amanda will also give you support by 
    throwing daggers (not accurate though). She only has 1 attack. She will throw 
    snakes at you! Try to avoid these as they can inflict the Ston status. Donít 
    worry though. If you got Stoned, just ask amanda and sheíll heal you. So, just 
    try to be quick while avoiding the snakes and Medusa herself, then attack her 
    head as fast as you can. 
    
    Also, if you have the Gold shield equipped, it can block the snakes which 
    Medusa throws at you.
    #############################################################################
    
    After beating Medusa, she will not cry therefore you cannot get the Tears of 
    Medusa to uncurse Amandaís Brother. As you leave, Amanda will fell something. 
    She was bitten by Medusa while you were fighting. Anyone who is bitten by 
    Medusa will also turn into a Medusa. Amanda will turn into a Medusa anytime 
    now. But before she loses her mind, she will tell you to get a tear from her, 
    because she is now a Medusa and can uncurse her brother, and then kill her 
    afterwards so that she canít hurt people. When you regain control of Sumo, 
    kill Amanda (you canít move on to the story if you donít do this). After 
    killing her, go to her and youíll get the Tears of Amanda. Then, youíll 
    automatically be taken outside to the world map.

    After the battle with Medusa, your HP and MP might be low. So, head to the Inn 
    which is one screen to the north from the entrance. After healing yourself, go 
    the BIG house on the upper leftmost part of Jadd. Enter the Mansion of Davias.

    Inside, go up the set of ladders on the top right corner. Next, go left two 
    screens. Now, youíll see a parrot here. It is Amandaís Brother. So, equip 
    Amandaís Tear and examine the parrot. Lester will now be freed from Daviasí 
    Curse. He will now join you to avenge Amanda as a NPC. If you ask Lester, he 
    will change the music for you. Letís move on. Use the ladder which appeared.
    
    In this new area, go right two screens. Here, equip your Mattock and then 
    destroy the wall to the north. And then, go north two screens. And then, head 
    left one screen then south one screen. Here, just step on the slippery panel 
    in a counter clockwise direction and use the ladders. In this new area, go 
    left four screens. At the end, youíll see a lot of floor panels. The key here 
    is to step on the panels in order. Hereís the diagram for you.
    
     43       Legend: the numbers are the order of the panels you should follow.

    Doing this, a ladder will appear and you can go to the next area. Now, in this 
    new area, go up one screen and then go left one screen. Now, go ALL THE WAY 
    SOUTH until you canít go south anymore. Youíll also see a door to your right 
    which doesnít open. You must step on the switch to open the door. So, in 
    short, use your Ice Magic on one of the enemies and push the snowman onto the 
    switch. Once the door is open, go in. The door will automatically lock. Defeat 
    all the enemies and youíll get the Were Axe. Now, go left one screen. And 
    then, go up two screens. Here, equip your Mattock and break the wall to the 
    right. And then, go right one screen and then go south one screen. Here, use 
    the ladder. Now, in this new area, go north one screen. Use the ladders that 
    youíll see here. Now, prepare your character again as a tough battle lies

    Attacks:            FireBalls
    Preferred Weapon:   Chain
    
    He will be very hard if you donít know what to do. First, I suggest you use 
    the Chain Flail again. It has a very good range and you can hit Davias with 
    ease. Be careful of his Fireballs at it will go STRAIGHT AT YOU so dodge them. 
    Also, do not touch the fireball that are protecting Davias. These will give a 
    lot of damage to you.
    
    Tip: You can use your weapon to attack the Fireballs (excluding the fireballs 
    around Davias)
    #############################################################################
    
    After beating him, youíll find out that the pendant is no longer with him. 
    Garuda flew together with the pendant to Glaive. Then, Davias will die. After 
    that, youíll be taken automatically to Jadd. Here, Lester will stay to play 
    Requiem for his sister. Youíll now be heading for Glaive! Lesterís tune will 
    remove the poison gas to the north (if you went there earlier). Before 
    leaving, Lester will give you the Magic book of Mute. Now, heal your character 
    at the Inn and then leave Jadd.

    right one screen. 
    
    Next, go north two screens. Next, go right one screen. Here, climb up the

    vines. First, go down the right most vine. At the very bottom, youíll see a

    GP:                 101
    Attacks:            None
    Preferred Weapon:   Wind Spear
    
    This will be very easy. Just stay in the middle and always walk to the 
    opposite of where the Metal Crab is going. This way, when he moves up or down, 
    you wonít get hurt. To damage it, you must hit its mouth so the Wind Spear is 
    the ideal weapon for this.
    
    Note: Watch out every time the Metal Crab is in the center. It may or may not 
    move down or up. 
    #############################################################################
    
    After beating the Metal Crab, a ladder will appear on the lower left. So, use 
    that ladder. In this new area, head left three screens and use the ladder at 
    the end. Youíll find yourself in the World Map again.

    Here, go left one screen and then to the south one screen. Next, go right one 
    screen. Now, go south four screens. Here, youíll see an enemy that looks like 
    a robot. If you accidentally touched it, it may inflict the Moogle condition 
    at you. During this time, your defense will drop to 0 and you will receive a 
    very large amount of damage from enemies. Now, from here, go right one screen. 
    Use the Recovery Spring at your leisure. After that, head back to the left one 
    screen. Then, go north one screen (note: use the upper right path. The Upper 
    left ones will bring you back where you came from). Next, go right one screen. 
    Now, go up one screen and then go right one screen. In here, youíll see 2 
    ladders going up. 
    
    Go up the right ladder first. Move on until you see the Weapon Shop. If you 
    have the money, go and buy the Opal Equipments. They are very strong in 
    defense compared to the Gold ones. If you donít have enough money, just beat 
    the enemies around you until you are able to buy the equipments. After buying 
    the equipments, leave the shop and go all the way down and use the other 
    ladder to the left. 
    
    Now, go all the way up and when you canít go any further, go left one screen. 
    Here, equip your axe. Now hereís the diagram again for the trees you must cut 
    in order to move on.

    Upon reaching location 2, go right one screen. Here, just cut the tree that 
    blocks your way and go north two screens. Next, head right one screen. Then, 
    go south two screens, hacking through the trees. Itís easy. And then, go right 
    one screen. Here, go up the ladders and enter the cave opening above.

    This level isnít confusing at all, if you know what to do :) Now, from your 
    starting point, go up one screen and then go right two screens. If you 
    returned to the left, youíll be back at the starting point so follow my 
    instructions carefully. Now, at the end, Equip your mattock and break the 
    north wall then go up one screen. Next, go left one screen. In here, you have 
    to put all 4 treasure chests on the 4 tiles on the ground. If you accidentally 
    destroyed a chest, leave the room and come back again. After placing the 4 
    chests the door to the north wonít open right? To open the door, just attack 
    one of the 4 chests and the door will open (I donít know why it should be this 
    way). After opening the door, go north one screen. Now, go right one screen. 
    Here, use a key, open the door to the right and then continue moving right 
    until you canít go right anymore. Here, go south three screens.
    
    Next, go right two screens. Here, use the ladder at the end. Now, prepare your 
    character for another boss. If youíre ready, go right one screen and then 
    fight!

    Attacks:            Morning Star Lounging Attacks
    Preferred Weapon:   Chain
    
    Basically, he is very easy. Just stay above or below him and keep on attacking 
    him. Just make sure that you are out of the way of his attacks. He will only 
    attack horizontally which will be very predictable. Sometimes though, he will 
    attack twice in a row. But, there are no other problems that you should worry 
    about.  
    #############################################################################
    
    After beating the Cyclops, youíll see a chest appear in the middle. Itís the 
    dreaded Morning Star! Now you can kill most of the enemies with this weapon! 
    You can also dump or sell your Mattocks as the Morning Star can destroy walls. 
    You can also destroy rocks that block your way. After getting it, equip it 
    right away. Now, go to the left one screen and use the ladder. And then, go 
    all the way to the left until you reach the starting point in the game (The 
    ladder and the 3 rocks).  Donít worry, trust me, just keep on going LEFT. When 
    you reach the entrance, go north one screen. Here, use the key to open the

    Preferred Weapon:   Morning Star Only!
    
    This boss is an average enemy. YOU MUST USE THE MORNING STAR in this battle. 
    It has only one kind of attack in which it charges its body vertically. It 
    will be walking on the top portion of the room and may or may not charge when 
    it reaches the left corner, the middle, or the right corner. It can attack 
    diagonally also. Basically, you canít predict where it will attack but if you 
    get damaged heal quickly as its charge attacks deal quite a big amount of 
    damage.

    After beating Golem, you will receive the Magic book of Lightning (lit). Now, 
    go north one screen and use the ladders here. Youíll now find yourself 
    outside. In here, go to the bridge and go right one screen. When you enter the 
    cave, youíll see the bridge collapse. You canít go back anymore. Then, the 
    screen fades. Now, youíll be on a very familiar place. The waterfall at Castle 
    Glaive!
    
    =============
    GLAIVE CASTLE
    =============
    
    From the waterfall, go right two screens. The castle gate is now open so go 
    inside. Inside, go left one screen. Equip your Axe and hack the trees to the 
    left. And then, go left one screen. Next, go up one screen and enter the door 
    at the end. Youíll now find yourself inside the Castle itself.
    
    Inside, Cross the 2 bridges and then go north one screen. Next, cross the 
    bridge and go right one screen. In here, cross the bridge and go right one 
    screen. Next, cross the left bridge and then go right one screen. In this 
    screen, just cross the bridge again and use the ladder in the corner.
    
    In this new area, just climb all the way up the vines and use the ladder at 
    the end. In the next screen, use the ladder that youíll see on the right 
    corner. Now, go down the ladder. Prepare your character again for another 
    boss. If youíre ready, go left and meet...
    
    BOSS: CHIMERA
    #############################################################################
    EXP gained:         20
    GP:                 91
    Attacks:            Zigzag Charging attack, fireballs
    Preferred Weapon:   Morning Star
    
    Beware! Chimera might give you some troubles. It usually stays on top firing 
    fireballs at you. Sometimes (most frequently), it will charge at you in a 
    zigzag pattern. During this time, you can either dodge it if your fast enough, 
    so just stay on the corner and hope that it wonít hit you. The damage is quite 
    big so prepare to heal Sumo anytime.
    #############################################################################
    
    After beating Chimera, use the ladders to the left. Youíll now see Fuji inside 
    a room. She will tell you that you must get the pendant right away and that 
    Dark Lordís room is on the top floor. After talking, use the lower right 
    ladder. In the next room, use the upper right ladders. Youíll be in a familiar 
    area (to the left of the vines you climbed up earlier).
    
    Now, you can go 3 ways here. Either go directly to the south, go south using 
    the ladder, or go left. Letís call it POINT A. Now, use the ladder first to 
    the next screen to the south. And then, go left one screen and go inside the 
    small house. Youíll see someone who sells items. Now is the perfect time to 
    sell ALL your Mattocks and buy a lot of Keys. 8 Sets is what I recommend. 
    After buying items, you can rest on any bed to regain all your HP and MP. 
    After preparing, go back to POINT A. From POINT A, go left three screens. And 
    then, go south one screen and enter the door at the end. 
    
    In this new area, you have to walk over the Spikes in order to move on. After 
    doing so, have Fuji heal you by asking her. After healing, go up one screen 
    and then go right one screen. Here, destroy the north wall and then go up one 
    screen. Next, go left one screen. Here, equip your Chain. Now, use the chain 
    first on the northern most pole. Now wait until your Will Bar fills up, then 
    use the chain on the left pole. Now, step on the switch. A ladder will appear 
    on the lower right corner of the room. Now, wait again until your Will Bar 
    fills up and then use it on the southern most pole. Now, use the ladder.
    
    In this new area, go north one screen and then go right one screen. Next, go 
    south two screens. In here go right one screen first. Now, use a Key on the 
    right door and enter it. Youíll see a bed here where you can rest and restore 
    your HP and MP. After resting, from here, go all the way to the left until you 
    see a room filled with Werewolves, 4 chests and a ladder. All you have to do 
    here is to prevent hitting the 4 chests. If you accidentally hit a chest, the 
    ladder will disappear, so you have to leave the room and come back again. 
    Letís continue. Now, go and use that ladder. In the next room, to right two 
    screen. Now, use your Morning Star to break the right wall. After that, go 
    right two screens and north one screen. In here, use the ladder at the corner. 
    Now, go south one screen. Here, go one screen to the right. In this room, 
    youíll have to fight the Knights. After beating all the Knights in this room, 
    get the chest for the Blood Sword. Now, go back left one screen and then north 
    one screen. Here, instead of using the ladders, break the north wall and then 
    go north one screen and then go right one screen and use the ladder. 
    
    In this new area, go south one screen. And then go left one screen. In this 
    room, there are 2 floor switches. You have to use your Ice Magic to turn the 
    knights into Snowmen. Note that the Black Mages here cannot be turned to 
    snowmen. If thereís only one knight, leave the room and then come back again 
    until you see 2 knights. Now, turn them into Snowmen and put them on the 2 
    switches. After youíve put the 2 snowmen on the switches, a ladder will appear 
    on the lower right corner. Now, use that ladder. Here, go left one screen and 
    then go up one screen and use the ladder in the middle. Next, go north one 
    screen. Youíll now notice that this is a throne room. In fact, it is Dark 
    Lordís Room. Now, I suggest you do a simple level up trick. 
    
    The Dark Mages and the Knights give off a fair amount of EXP. So, beat all of 
    them inside the throne room and then save. And then, reset your Gameboy by 
    pressing A,B,Start and Select buttons AT THE SAME TIME. Now, load your game 
    again. Do this pattern until you level up or up to how many times you want. If 
    you feel youíre ready, from the throne room, go left one screen. Now, prepare 
    your character and then SAVE the game. Youíll now face Dark Lord!
    
    BOSS: DARK LORD

    Attacks:            Sword Attacks
    Preferred Weapon:   Morning Star
    
    He isnít as hard as you think. All you have to do is to use your Morning Star. 
    It will pass through his shield and damage him. The one thing that you must be 
    aware of is that he has a good AI and can follow you even if you try to run 
    away from him. You donít have to worry about his sword attacks. All you have 
    to do is to stay away from him to prevent him from damaging you when he 
    touches you.
    #############################################################################
    
    After beating Dark Lord, youíll receive the pendant. But, youíll notice that 
    it is fake! So, use the ladder on the lower right corner. In the next room, 
    youíll see that Fuji is not here anymore. So, Julius might have done something 
    to her. After that, youíll be taken automatically outside the castle. Here, 
    youíll see Fuji. Youíll try to call her but she will ignore you. After youíve 
    regained control of your character, go all the way to the left to the 
    waterfalls. 
    
    Here, youíll see that Julius already mesmerized Fuji. Julius will tell you 
    that he is the only one left from Vandole and he must one again acquire the 
    power of Mana. Fuji will now reverse the waterfall. In you last desperate 
    moment to save Fuji, Julius will blast you again and youíll fall again. 
    
    After your fall, youíll find yourself in the world map, but you cannot move. 
    Then, the Chocobo will come and pick you up and brings you inside the town of 
    Ish.

    ISH
    ===
    
    When you wake up, youíll find yourself in the house of Sarah together with, 
    guess who, Bogard! Youíll immediately stand up and begin hesitating about 
    whatís happening to you, about being a Gemma knight and about Mana. Then, 
    Bogard will tell you to shut up and youíll get out of the house. Now, talk to 
    Sarah. She will tell you that she believes in you that you are the only hope 
    in saving the world. Then, sheíll tell you that chocobo is being treated at 
    Doctor Bowowís house. Letís head there first before going to the shops. From 
    Sarahís house, go left two screens. Now, enter the house. Right before 
    entering, youíll hear some weird sounds coming from the house. Inside, youíll 
    see Dr. Bowow and Chocobo. Dr. Bowow will tell you that he mechanized the 
    Chocoboís wounded leg and can travel by water! He named it the Chocobot! Then, 
    Dr. Bowow will tell you also that you are the only hope and that you should 
    talk to Bogard first before leaving town. So, head back to Sarahís house and 
    talk to Bogard. Now, Bogard will tell you that from here onwards, your 
    adventure will be much more dangerous. You must now endure in the quest for 
    the Excalibur to be able to defeat Julius. Just like Bogard and co. once did 
    against Vandole. You should now go and talk to Cibba to know more. Dr. Bowow 
    knows the direction but letís ME help you this time. Now, letís prepare your 
    character. Leave Sarahís house and go to the weapon shop. And then, go buy 
    items at the Item Shop. After that, youíll also notice that your HP and MP are 
    still the same just as it was after beating Dark Lord, so head to the Inn and 
    pay a small amount (10 G) to rest. After resting, from the in, go all the way 
    to the south until you reach the World Map.

    Once outside, talk to your new chocobot so that he would join you. Now, follow 
    my instructions carefully so that youíll reach Wendel in no time. 
    
    From Ish, Go left one screen and then go north two screens. Next, go left two 
    screen. Here, youíll see a wooden dock. So, ASK the chocobot to give you a 
    ride. Now, you can walk on water when you use the dock. Just put your chocobot 
    on the docks and simply enter the water. When youíre in the water, go north 
    one screen. Next, go right SEVEN screens and then go up one screen. Use the 
    docks here and then go north one screen. Youíre now exactly at Wendel. Now, 
    jump off your Chocobot and enter Wendel.

    WENDEL
    ======
    
    upon entrance, go north one screen. Here, youíll see a lady which looks like a 
    mouse. If you talk to her, she will tell you that Lorim was attacked by many 
    monsters and Cibba went there! She will also tell you that it is south from 
    the snowfields. After hearing that, leave Wendel right away. Get your Chocobot 
    (I wonít remind you again next time, so always remember take your chocobot 
    after you leave a town or a dungeon.). In the world map, go south one screen 
    from Wendel and use the docks again. From the docks, head south two screens. 
    And then, go left four screens. Here, go south one screen. From here, just 
    move one (the path is pretty straight forward) until you see another dock. Use 
    than and then go up the ladder up to the next screen. In this screen, a path 
    to the left is blocked by trees so go right one screen. And then, go south two 
    screens. Next, go right one screen and then go up the big set of ladders and 
    enter Lorim.

    LORIM
    =====
    
    Upon entering the town of Lorim, youíll notice that the person here is frozen! 
    It seems someone or something froze the whole place! From the main room, go up 
    one screen. Here, youíll see the King. Amazingly, heís not frozen so talk to 
    him. Heíll tell you that Julius summoned a monster named Kary and froze the 
    Town! Now, itís time to beat that Kary up! So, leave Lorim at once.

    Now, go back to where you saw a path blocked by trees. Now, use your axe and 
    hack all the trees here. After hacking all the trees, go north three screens. 
    This place is very cold and Chocobot cannot join you from here. So, you have 
    to move on without chocobot. Now, go north one screen. And then, go left one 
    screen. Youíll see a house here. Enter it. Itís an Item shop so buy all your 
    item needs here. After buying, if necessary, leave the shop.

    CAVE OF SNOWFIELDS
    ==================
    Item:
      Elixir
    
    Upon entering, go north two screens (use the left sliding floors on the second 
    room). On the north room, youíll see a lot of sliding floors and a snowman. 
    Now, step on the upper right switch. A sliding floor will appear beneath the 
    snowman. The snowman will now travel through the sliding floors until in 
    reaches the end. Now, push it north onto the floor switch. The door on the 
    right should now be open. So, go right one screen. Now, use your Flame Flail 
    and swing across. Now, go to the sliding floor to the north of this room. In 
    the next screen, use your MAXed flame flail on the pole to the left and then 
    step on the sliding floor on the left. When you reach the next room, youíll 
    see that you can go next screen to all 4 different directions. Sliding floors 
    at the sides, south door and a north door. Go through the north door to the 
    next screen (donít forget to use a key). Now, go right one screen. In here, 
    sliding floors block your way. You pass through only at the sliding floor 
    which is second from the bottom of the screen. Now, go north one screen. Here, 
    use your Morning Star to break the northern wall. And then, go north two 
    screens. In here, there are sliding floors again. Just walk to any one of the 
    top horizontal sliding floors and it will bring you to the correct one. Once 
    your outside of the sliding floors, go right two screens. Here, use the 
    ladder. 
    
    In the next area, youíll see sliding floors going to the right screen and to 
    the south screen. Use the right sliding floors. From here, just wait until 
    Sumo stops in a screen with Pumpkin and two flowers to the north. Now, use 
    your Morning Star and break the north wall. And then, go north one screen and 
    use the ladder in there. 
    
    In the next area, break the north wall. Go through it and youíll see a 
    recovery spring. After using it, go south one screen. Here, go left one screen 
    and then go south one screen. Kill all the enemies in this room. A chest will 
    appear in the center. Now, get it for an elixir. And then, go back north one 
    screen and then go right two screens. Here, go north one screen. Next, just 
    walk on the sliding floors then use the ladder at the upper right. In this 
    area, just go right one screen and enter the door. Next, use your MAXed flail 
    to reach the pole. After crossing over the sliding floors, go left two 
    screens. Next, go south one screen. In this room, walk to the sliding floor 
    and use your flail on the poles in the middle. After that, step in the switch. 
    A portion of the sliding floors will disappear. You can now step on the lower 
    right floor switch. The door will now open. Now, go south one screen. Here, 
    just go through the sliding floor and then go right two screens. In this room, 
    you can either go right or south. Go right one screen by using the sliding 
    floor. On the next screen, use the south sliding floor. When you reach the 
    next screen, youíll see a small pond in the middle then, use the sliding floor 
    to the south. On the next screen, use your flail to reach the pole to the 
    left. Take note that you do not the a MAXed flail here. Now, go left using the 
    sliding floors. Now, you should be in a room where you can see a pit in the 
    middle and a wooden bridge over it. Youíll also see the sliding floors to the 
    left and right. Now, equip your flail (if it isnít equipped) and use the left 
    sliding floor. When you reach the next room, try to hit the 2 poles on the 
    left wall. If youíre not successful, youíll be back at the room with the pit. 
    Just continue on trying until you are able to hit either of the poles. If 
    youíre successful, use your Morning Star on the wall and go left one screen. 
    In this room, use your MAXed flail on the leftmost pole. And then use it on 
    the northmost one. Now, use the ladder at the corner. And then, go right one 
    screen and enter another door. When you reach the room with 3 poles, use your 
    flail on the middle pole first and then use it on the lower right one. Now, go 
    right one screen. And then go north one screen. Use the ladder in the corner 
    again. Now, prepare Sumo for another boss. I suggest that you use the Flame 
    Flail for the next battle. If youíre ready, go right one screen and meet Kary.

    First I suggest you ride your Chocobot. From Lorim, go south one screen and 
    then go left one screen. And then, go north two screens then left one screen. 
    Now, go south one screen. Here, use the docks and go in the water.

    Go out of the water and in to dry land.
    
    Now, in dry land, go north one screen and then go right one screen. Here, go 
    north first. Thereís a recovery spring here. After using it, if necessary head 
    south one screen. Then, go south one screen (donít grab the pole on the left 
    side). Then, go right one screen. Youíll be at the shore of Ammonite Coast. 
    From here, just go all the way to the north, grabbing the poles if necessary, 
    until you reach the weapon shop at the end. You can buy Ice equipments here. 
    After buying the equipments, head all the way back to the recovery spring and 
    heal yourself. Now, from where the Recovery spring is, just go south one

    GP:                 150+
    Attacks:            Tentacles
    Preferred Weapon:   Thunder Spear
    
    If your slow, you might have some troubles with Kraken. It has two tentacles 
    by itís side. Most of the time it wonít attack and sometimes it extends its 
    tentacles into the bridge and might hit you. The strategy here is to attack 
    then retreat. You must hit its head then quickly move out of the way of its 
    tentacles. This way, once it attacks, youíll be out of harms way. This might 
    take long but Iím sure you can beat it.
    #############################################################################
    
    After beating Kraken, a door will appear. Go inside it. Youíll be outside now. 
    Now, youíll see a door below right? All you have to do is to go around this 
    small island and youíll be able to reach that door. Once you reach it, enter 
    it right away.
    
    Inside, youíll face new and stronger enemies but they sure give you a lot of 
    EXP and Gs. Now, go south one screen. Next, go left two screen and then go up 
    one screen. Here, destroy the wall to the left. Now, equip your Ice Magic and 
    your Sickle and go left one screen. Here, Hack away all the herbs around both 
    switches. Now, you can kill the Dark Mages if there are some but leave the 
    knights alive. You have to turn 2 of them into snowmen and place them over the 
    switches. If thereís only 1 knight, leave the room and then come back again. 
    If you successfully placed 2 snowmen on the switches, a ladder will appear in 
    the lower right corner. Now use the ladder. In the next area, go left one 
    screen. Here, go inside the door at the end. In the next area, go left one 
    screen. Youíll see a lava pool in this room. If you touch it, youíll get A LOT 
    of damage! But you have to cross it. So, heal your character to the MAX and 
    cross the lava and go north one screen QUICKLY. Now, heal your character 
    again. Now, go north one more screen. Youíll see 2 doors here. Go left one 
    screen first and then go south one screen. Next, go left one screen. Thereís a 
    lava pool here but luckily, you wonít have to cross it. Now, go south one 
    screen. Youíll see a dreaded Lava Pool. You have to cross it if you want to 
    get the treasure. So, cross it quickly and Cure if necessary. Once you reach 
    dry land, use a key and go south one screen. Here, kill all of the enemies and 
    a chest will appear in the middle. Itís the most powerful Axe in the game. The 
    Zeus Axe! Now, go north one screen and cross the lava pool again and go up 
    another screen. Here, destroy the right wall again and go right one screen 
    (thereís no point in going left). Next, go up one screen and then go right one 
    screen. 
    
    In here, go north one screen. Here, break the right wall and go right one 
    screen and use the ladder. Outside, just use the other door on top. In the 
    next area, go north one screen and then go right two screens. Here, go south 
    one screen. If youíre HP/MP are low, go south one screen for a recovery spring 
    and then come back one screen. Here, open the right door and go right one 
    screen. Here, destroy the lower right rock and use the ladder that appear. In 
    the next screen, you must choose among 3 doors. Choose the right most door as 
    the other 2 will only confuse you and wonít get you anywhere. Now, in the next 
    area, go south one screen and then go left one screen. Here, get your Ice 
    Magic ready and head north one screen. Here, turn any 2 monsters into snowmen 
    and push them on to the floor switches. After placing 2 snowmen on the 
    switches, a ladder will appear. Just attack the snowmem and you can now use 
    the ladder that appeared. In the next area, prepare your character once more. 
    Now, equip him with the Thunder Spear and Cure Magic and heal his HP/MP. If 
    youíre ready go left one screen and meet...

    WORLD
    =====
    
    Thereís a glitch here. If you arrive in the world map and the chocobot is in 
    the upper left corner, you canít talk to it because the rocks get in the way. 
    All you have to do is to leave this screen and come back again and talk to the 
    chocobot and take it with you again. Now, weíll have to go all the way back to 
    Lorim and see Cibba once more. Iíll tell you again how to get there if you 
    forgot. Here it is:
    
    From the cave, go right one screen and then go south one screen. From here, go 
    left two screens. Next, go north one screen and then left and then north 
    again. Youíll be at the shop where you bought the Thunder Spear. From here, go 
    right one screen and then go north two screens. Cross the wooden bridge then 
    go south one screen and then one screen to the right. Youíll be back at the 
    shore. Here, go north two screens then go left one screen and then go north 
    two screens more. Here, go right one screen. Youíll now be at the Ammonite 
    Coast Area.
    
    Next, go north three screens and then go left one screen. Here, go north one 
    screen. Now, use your Flail and cross the river. And then, go north one 
    screen. Here, you can go north and recover at the Springs. After using the 
    Springs, go south one screen then go left one screen. Now, go south one 
    screen. Now, go into the water using the docks. 
    
    In the water, go north one screen. And then, go right one screen then go south 
    two screens and then go right one screen again. Youíll be at the ocean again. 
    Here, go north six screen and then go left two screens. Next, go north one 
    screen. And then, go left four screens. Now, go down through the water channel 
    going to the south and head for Lorim. 
    
    =====
    LORIM
    =====
    
    When you reach Lorim, talk to Cibba right away. Heíll tell you that the only 
    thing left to do is to reveal the Dime Tower in the Desert of Crystal. You 
    must then use the Rusty Sword (Legendary Sword) in the Cave of Ruins in order 
    to reveal the Tower. The ruins is located in the Desert of Crystal near Ish. 
    After a short talk about the Sword, Cibba will tell you to go to Dr. Bowow to 
    ask for directions. Nah! You can ask me though! :)
    
    Hereís my instructions to get to the Cave of Ruins:
    After talking to Cibba, leave Lorim right away. 
    
    =====
    WORLD
    =====
    
    Now, in the world map, get your Chocobot. Go to the Ocean and go up until you 
    reach the top portion of the map. (You should see the shop in the Snowfields). 
    Check you map and check whether your already on top of the map. If you went to 
    Bowow, youíll know that the Cave of Ruins is hidden beneath one of the 
    crystals in the Desert of Crystal and youíll need a very powerful magic to 
    destroy the crystal covering the entrance. It is the Nuke Magic. Bowow will 
    tell you to beat Lich at the Palmy Desert. Iíll just tell you how to get there 
    and beat Lich for the Nuke, the strongest magic in the game. 
    
    From your current location (on top of the map), go left until you see the 
    docks in the Desert of Crystal (Ish Area). Here, donít go to dry land, 
    instead, go north three screens. Youíll see the Palmy Desert and the docks. 
    Use the docks to enter dry land. Now, from your current position, go left one 
    screen. And then go south one screen then go left one screen. Next, go south 
    one screen again and then go left one screen again. Here, go north one screen. 
    Youíll now see the Cave of the Palmy Desert.
    
    ====================
    CAVE OF PALMY DESERT
    ====================
    Magic:
      Nuke
    
    Once inside, use the other ladder at the lower right corner of the room. In 
    the next room, use the other ladder again at the lower right corner. In the 
    next area, go down the ladders. Before going north, make sure your HP and MP 
    are FULL as youíll meet one of the most damaging enemy in the game! I suggest 
    that you use the Flame Flail as it has a fast attack and can hit Lich many 
    times. And donít forget to Save. Now, if youíre ready, go north and battle 
    Lich.
    
    BOSS: LICH
    #############################################################################
    EXP gained:         196
    GP:                 204
    Attacks:            Skulls
    Preferred Weapon:   Flame Flail
    
    You must be very fast as Lich flies around quickly. Heíll also lunge at you 
    some nasty skulls that damages you a lot. And most of all, DONíT EVER TOUCH 
    HIM! Youíll receive a very large amount of damage! All you have to do is to 
    try to evade him at the same time, hitting him with your Flail. Your Flame 
    Flail will be fast enough for you to move away from Lich. The only advantage 
    Lich can give you is that, you can hit Lich on any part of his body. So, try 
    to be patient.
    
    Note: You can hit the Skulls with your weapons. 
    #############################################################################
    
    After the battle, youíll now receive the Nuke Magic. Then, youíll 
    automatically be taken on the world map.

    WORLD
    =====
    
    Now, if you return to Dr. Bowow, heíll now tell you the location of the 
    crystal that covers the Cave of ruins. Iíll just tell you how to get there to 
    save time. Now, from the Cave, go back to the docks and into the water. From 
    here, go south three screens and youíll arrive in the Docks at the Desert of 
    Crystal. Go to Dry Land and then go right one screen. Here, youíll see 2 
    crystals in the middle. Use your Nuke and blast the one on the right. A cave 
    opening should now appear. Enter it and youíll be in the Cave of Ruins.
    
    =============
    CAVE OF RUINS
    =============
    Equipments:
      Dragon Sword
      Dragon Shield
    
    Upon entering, go left two screens. Next, go north one screen. In here, use 
    the slippery floors and go right one screen. You can now get the 2nd best 
    shield in the game, the Dragon Shield. After getting the shield, go left one 
    screen again. This time, go north two screen. In here, go left two screens. 
    Now, youíll get the Dragon Sword. After getting the sword, go right two 
    screens. Next, go right two screens. And then, go north three screens. Next, 
    go left one screen, Now, prepare your character for another boss battle. If 
    youíre ready, go north and face...

    Attacks:            Charging Attack
    Preferred Weapon:   Flame Flail
    
    Youíll have to cross the lightning barrier so that youíll be in the middle. 
    When youíre inside, cure at once and then hack away with your Flame Flail. 
    Most of the time, Mantis Ant will stay on top. He rarely uses his charging 
    attack but it is very easy to evade. Trust me, Mantis Ant is easy. 
    #############################################################################
    
    After the battle, heal your HP to the MAX. After that, equip the Rusty Sword 
    and go right one screen. In here, step on the Floor Switch while you have the 
    Rusty Sword Equipped. It will release itís power now. Then, youíll be 
    automatically taken to the world map. A message will show up. Dime Tower 
    should now appear somewhere in this desert.
    
    =====
    WORLD
    =====
    
    This will now be your last time to see the World Map. You can buy Equipments 
    and Items (especially Keys). So, go visit Ish one last time. Once there, sleep 
    at the Inn and buy Keys until you have 8 sets of it in your inventory. If 
    youíre ready, letís head for the Dime Tower. I repeat, thereís no turning back 
    now.
    
    From Ish, go left one screen and then south one screen and finally to the left 
    one screen. Youíll see the Dime Tower emerge from the ground. Now, this will 
    be the last time that youíll see the world map so come here prepared. Take 
    note that if you go left one screen and the north one screen, youíll see a 
    Magic Shop. Buy something if you need it. If youíre ready, go to the Dime 
    Tower and enter the door. (Bye Chocobot!) 
    
    ==========
    DIME TOWER
    ==========
    Equipment:
      Dragon Armor
    
    upon entering, youíll see Marcie. A robot created by Dr. Bowow 50 years ago. 
    Sheíll be able to help you by restoring your MPs! Wow! Unlimited Magic! Letís 
    move on.
    
    From the first room, go left one screen and then go north two screens. Now go 
    north and go tot he tablet. It says ďTHE TREE OF MANA GROWS WITH THE ENERGY OF 
    NATUREĒ. After seeing it, go back south one screen. You can bypass these 
    tablets but they have infos about Mana. Now, go right one screen. Next, go 
    south one screen and then go right one screen. Youíll see another tablet. It 
    says ďTHE EVIL FORCE OR PEOPLE MAKES THE TREE EVILĒ. After that, go right one 
    screen. Next, go north one screen. From here, you can choose any of the 2 
    paths. 
    
    Path #1
    -------
    From the screen with 4 floor switches in the middle, go left one screen. Next, 
    go up one screen and then go left one screen. Use the ladders here. In the 
    next area, go left one screen and then go south one screen. Next, go right one 
    screen. Now, go south two screens. Youíll see another tablet that says ďONE 
    WHO TOUCHES THE MANA TREE GETS THE POWERĒ. From here, go right one screen. Go 
    to meeting point...
    
    Path #2
    -------
    In the screen with 4 floor switches in the middle, use your Flail to go in the 
    middle. Just step on all floor switches and the door to the north will open. 
    After that, go north one screen and use the ladders. In the next area, go up 
    one screen using the vines. In this screen, just enter the door. Now, go south 
    three screens and then go left one screen.
    
    Meeting Point
    -------------
    Now, use the ladders. In the next area, go up one screen using the vines to 
    the left. On the next screen, enter the door. Now, go left one screen. There 
    are 2 locked doors here, one to the left and one to the north. Letís call this 
    Point AA. Now, equip a key then go north one screen. Next, go right one 
    screen. You can now get the Dragon Armor from the chest in the middle. If you 
    go north one screen and move on, youíll reach a tablet that says, ďGEMMA 
    KNIGHT WITH THE RUSTY SWORD WILL BE TESTED. THE TRUE GEMMA KNIGHT SHOULD BE 
    GIVEN THE LEGENDARY SWORD, EXCALIBUR...!Ē. Now, go back to Point AA. If you go 
    left one screen, youíll see another tablet that says ďKING OF VANDOLE GOT THE 
    MIGHTY POWER OF MANA. THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN STAND AGAINST IT IS THE... GEMMA 
    KNIGHT... WITH THE... EXCALIBUR...Ē. Letís go to Point AA again. From here, go 
    north one screen again. Here, destroy the left wall and go through it to the 
    next screen. Then, use the ladders. In the next screen, just use the other 
    ladder. In the next area, equip your axe and hack the 2 trees that are 
    covering the 2 monsters. Be careful not to hit them. If you accidentally 
    killed one of them, just save and then restart the game again. Now, once the 
    trees are gone, use your Ice and turn them into snowmen. The north door will 
    now open. Then, go north one screen and then go right one screen.
    
    Youíll see another tablet that says ďTHE VANDOLE SOON SHOULD FALL. WE LEAVE 
    OUR LAST HOPE IN THE CAVE OF THE WATERFALLS. GLORY TO VANDOLE AND TO OUR CHILD 
    OF HOPE...!Ē. Now, go south one screen and use the ladder there. In the next 
    screen, prepare your character for a boss fight. If youíre already prepared, 
    go north one screen and face...
    
    BOSS: GARUDA
    #############################################################################
    EXP gained:         221
    GP:                 266
    Attacks:            Feather Blades, Charge
    Preferred Weapon:   Flame Flail
    
    I suggest you use the Flame Flail as it can attack more times than the other 
    weapon types. Garuda is VERY EASY! Just stay on the lower left corner if he is 
    on the upper left, and go to the lower right corner if he is on the upper 
    right. Just attack and attack while youíre in the corner. Once he charges, 
    just follow him. Youíll receive no damage at all. Your Flail will destroy all 
    Feather Blades that he throws at you. 
    #############################################################################
    
    After the battle, the tower will crumble. It lost its balance. One you regain 
    control of your character, go left one screen. In the next screen, you can 
    take advantage of Marcie for the last time. Equip your Cure magic and then use 
    it until your HP is at full. Then, ASK Marcie to restore all MPs! After doing 
    this trick, go left one screen. 
    
    Now, a piece of the tower will fall. You canít go to the other side. Marcie 
    will then kick you so that you can reach the other side. Once you reach the 
    other side, youíll see a sad scene. Marcie is unable to jump. The Dime Tower 
    will come crashing down including Marcie. Sumo will have a surge of emotion 
    afterwards (heíll shout). 
    
    =============
    GLAIVE CASTLE
    =============
    
    When you regain control of Sumo, keep moving left. Youíll notice that youíre 
    at Glaive Castle. You donít have to enter the castle itself. Go all the way to 
    the left towards the waterfalls. Once you reach it, itís current will now go 
    up and Sumo will go for it. Youíll be taken WAY WAY up until you reach the 
    top. Youíre now at the Final Dungeon in the game, the Temple of Mana.
    
    ==============
    TEMPLE OF MANA
    ==============
    
    //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    SUPER TIP #1:
    You can get Elixirs from the Ninjaís right? Now, if your item inventory is 
    full and you examine a chest left by a ninja, it will say ďCanít CarryĒ right? 
    Now, here's something great. Keep on examining it and youíll get the most 
    powerful Armor in the game, the Samurai Armor.
    
    SUPER TIP #2:
    The Devil Heads here that can only be destroyed by using the Nuke Magic, give 
    off X-Ethers. If you do the same thing as you did to the Ninja, youíll be able 
    to get the most powerful Helmet in the game, the Samurai Helmet.
    
    SUPER TIP #3:
    The Elephants near the last boss will give you a Unicorn. If you do the same 
    thing as you did with the Ninjas and the Devil Heads, youíll get the most 
    powerful shield in the game, the Aegis Shield. It can deflect ANY projectile 
    attack at you. Even the strong force balls of the last boss.
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Now, move on until you enter the Temple itself. Inside, just go south one 
    screen and then go right two screens. Next, go north two screens. In here, 
    equip a key and go north one screen and then use the ladders. In the next 
    area, prepare your character for a boss fight. After the preparations, go 
    north one screen and face...
    
    BOSS: DRAGON
    #############################################################################
    EXP gained:         0
    GP:                 257
    Attacks:            Fire Ball
    Preferred Weapon:   Flame Flail or Thunder Spear
    
    This is a very easy fight. Just use your Flail or Spear to attack the Head 
    ONLY. You canít damage any other part of its body. 
    #############################################################################
    
    After the fight, use the teleporter that appears. In the next screen, just go 
    right one screen (Youíll see the Devil Heads here so use Super Tip #2) and use 
    the teleporter. 
    
    In the next screen, go left one screen. Here, go north one screen and then go 
    left two screens and use the teleporter at the end. In the next area, just go 
    right to the next screen and use the teleporter. In the next area, go south 
    one screen. Here, destroy the left wall then go left two screens. Next, go 
    south one screen. Here, go left one screen and use the teleporter. Next, go 
    left one screen and then go south one screen. Now, in this room, thereís a 
    trapped monster in the bottom of the screen. Now, equip your Ice Magic and use 
    to turn the monster into a snowman. Your Ice can pass through the circle 
    thingy (whatever) so you can reach it. Itís easy to guide your icicle, just 
    try again if you fail. If you successfully turned the monster into a snowman, 
    the right door will open. Now, go right one screen and use the ladder. In the 
    next screen, prepare your character again for another boss. If youíre prepared 
    go north one screen.
    
    BOSS: RED DRAGON
    #############################################################################
    EXP gained:         0
    GP:                 257
    Attacks:            Fire Ball
    Preferred Weapon:   Flame Flail or Thunder Spear
    
    Itís just the same as the previous dragon. Just use your Flail or Spear to 
    attack the Head ONLY. You also canít damage any other part of its body. 
    #############################################################################
    
    After you beat the Red Dragon, use the teleporter that will appear. In the 
    next area, just go left one screen and use the teleporter. Now, go right one 
    screen and then go north one screen and use the teleporter. In the next area, 
    go right one screen and use the teleporter. 
    
    Now, go south one screen and then go right one screen. Now, letís call this 
    screen Point BB. From here, go right one screen and use the teleporter. In the 
    next screen, go left one screen using a key. Use the Recovery Spring and then 
    go back to Point BB. From here, go south one screen and use the teleporter. 
    Now, go left one screen and use the teleporter. When you reach the next area, 
    go right five screens. Here, youíll see a lot of floor switches formed in a 
    rectangle. You have to change a Ninja into a snowman and put it in the correct 
    Floor Switch. In the left COLUMN of switches, the correct one is the ones 
    which is second from below. Put the snowman there and the door to the north 
    will open. Now, go north three screens and use the ladder. In the next screen, 
    just like a while ago, prepare your character again. If youíre ready, go north 
    one screen.
    
    BOSS: DRAGON ZOMBIE
    #############################################################################
    EXP gained:         0
    GP:                 270
    Attacks:            Fire Ball, Charge Attack
    Preferred Weapon:   Flame Flail or Thunder Spear
    
    The Dragon Zombie looks like the two-headed dragon you fought way back at the 
    Cave of Marsh. All you have to do is to attack the head with your flail or 
    spear. Beware though, if his fireballs hit you or you accidentally touched it, 
    it will deal a big amount of damage compared to the previous 2 dragons.
    #############################################################################
    
    After the battle, use the teleporter that will appear. From here on, the path 
    is pretty straight forward to the final boss! You can now use my Super Tip #3 
    to get the Aegis shield for the best protection. Now, on the way, youíll see 
    Fujiís Mom. Sheíll tell you that you have been a great Gemma knight. She will 
    now bestow you with the most powerful weapon in the game, the Excalibur! Equip 
    it right away then move on. NOW READ CAREFULLY. When you reach the area where 
    you can see 2 big trees to the left and right and a big ladder in the middle, 
    prepare your character for the final battle! I recommend level 50+ when youíre 
    here. You can level up your character by beating the elephants here until you 
    reach level 50. If youíre ready go up the ladder and fight Julius!
    
    NOTE: YOU WILL RECEIVE EXP AND GP!!! This very odd! The EXP is useful as you 
    can level up while you fight Julius. But the GP? Itís useless.
    
    FINAL BOSS: JULIUS (3 Forms)  162438 - 61535
    #############################################################################
    Note: You should use the Excalibur Sword. But if you want some challenge, try 
    using the Broad Sword! :) And, in all three forms of Julius, the charging 
    attack of the MAXed sword is the most efficient attack to use.
    
    FIRST FORM:
    -----------
    Attacks:  Sword
    EXP:      638
    GP:       818
    
    Julius will be in triplets. You just have to attack and beat all three until 
    all of them disappears. After that, prepare for Juliusí second form.
    
    SECOND FORM:
    ------------
    Attacks:  Lightning Bolts, Charging Attack
    EXP:      0
    GP:       162
    
    He will turn into a monster now and Julius will be harder to avoid this time. 
    Heíll be flying on top while throwing Lightning bolts. From time to time, he 
    will also charge downwards so try to be always by his side. He can charge from 
    left to right or vice versa though. 
    
    THIRD FORM:
    -----------
    Attacks:     Teleportation, Force Ball
    EXP and GP:  No more
    
    He will turn into a head with 2 arms. He will teleport from one place to 
    another. There is a pattern but I wonít include it in the guide. Also, while 
    teleporting from place to place, he will be throwing force balls at you. With 
    you Aegis Shield, the force balls are NOTHING! He will be hard to beat, but 
    with Fuji as your companion, you can ASK her to regenerate your HP while 
    fighting. What I did was I also equipped the Nuke at the same time, attacking 
    with the Excalibur. These made short work of him!

    After you beat all 3 forms of Julius, youíll see a short scene. Itís somewhat 
    sad but happy at the same time. I wonít spoil it, just finish the game. :) 
    Well, thatís it for the best RPG for the Gameboy (My rechargeable batteries 
    got a beating). So, thank you for reading the guide and congratulations! I 
    hope you enjoyed the game! Until then. Cíya!

                                    GAMEPLAY TIPS
                              -=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    1. The Moogle (Moog) condition cannot be cured even with the Moogle Item. If 
    it is inflicted to your character, there are 2 ways to avoid contact with the 
    enemy (these will also use up the time so that Moogle will be cured). First, 
    ASK your Chocobo for a ride! Your enemies canít hurt you at all. And then, ASK 
    again and your Moog condition will be removed. Second, stay at the edge of the 
    current area (in world map/field) or stay in front of the doorways (dungeons, 
    towns, etc.) and go back and forth between this area and the other area. This 
    will use the time and prevents enemy contact.
    
    2. You are poisoned! (Pois Condition) You donít want to use Pure or the Heal 
    Magic. Stay at the edge of the current area (in world map/field) or stay in 
    front of the doorways (dungeons, towns, etc.) and go back and forth between 
    this area and the other area. This will use up the time but will definitely 
    cure Poison after a while. Doing this also lessens the effect of the poison. 
    Your HP will drop at most 2 times only. 
    
    3. Another strategy for Pois. If the Heroine is with you, ASK her. This will 
    counter the Pois effect. Every time Pois cuts down your HP, the heroine will 
    heal that same amount of HP lost. Therefore, no change of HP will occur when 
    in Pois Condition.
    
    4. Yet another Pois Strategy. If you are alone and you donít have items. 
    Youíre low on life, surrounded by enemies, and Poisoned at the same time, what 
    do you do? Attack like crazy! Hitting the A button rapidly will make your 
    character attack continuously. This will slow down the Pois condition. It will 
    stop the depletion of your HP. Take note also that this does not mean that the 
    Pois condition is cured.
    
    5. In towns, YOU CAN KILL THE PEOPLE! Just be patient though. They have a high 
    HP and wonít go down easily. When you use your strongest weapons, about 3-5 
    hits will do. If you beat them, they will say their lines afterwards.
    
    6. If you want to get a lot of experience in a certain place but you are 
    afraid that the enemies will not respawn anymore? If you have 4 enemies in an 
    area, if you beat them all and come back, there will be no more enemies, 
    right? But, if you left one of them, alive, and then came back again, the 
    enemies will respawn. This is good for leveling up and collecting GPs. 
    
    7. When you strike a wall with a weapon and you hear a cranking sound, use 
    your mattock or Morning Star to destroy that wall and reveal a new path. 
    
    8. If an empty chest gets in your way, destroy it with your weapon and it will 
    simply, disappear. 
    
    9. If there are a lot of rocks, and they are beside each other, you can break 
    them in one shot. With the Mattock, stand in between the rocks and then press 
    the B button. The 2 rocks will disappear. With the Morning Star, just attack 
    the rocks head on. 
    
    10. Once you acquire the Morning Star, you wonít have any need for the 
    Mattocks anymore. So, just sell ALL your mattocks to save space in the Items 
    Inventory. This will enable you to get more important items such as Keys.

                          FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
                          =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. Where can I find an updated version of this walkthrough/FAQ?
    
    This guide will be posted and updated mainly at HTTP://WWW.GAMEFAQS.COM. There 
    are also other sites in which I gave my permission to also post my work in it 
    original and unaltered form. Here they are:
    
    http://www.gamewinners.com or
      -http://vgstrategies.about.com
    http://www.pgamers.com
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2. What made you do this guide? FFA is a really old game.
    
    Creating/Updating FAQs has become my hobby. With regards to this, I plan to 
    create one for the best games that I have so far. Iíll be concentrating on 
    RPGs as of now. Final Fantasy was the FIRST RPG Iíve ever played. It is third 
    in line for my projects as the 2 of my most favorite RPGs have a guide from 
    me. The Chrono Trigger (SNES) and Chrono Cross (PSX).  Who knows? I may create 
    a guide for another type of game. 
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3. How often can you update the FAQ?
    
    This is the question, which do not have an exact answer. An update will be 
    made if there is certain info that needs to be included. Iím still going to 
    school and I only have limited time per day to make updates/revisions of this 
    walkthrough. But, Iíll always make sure that if thereís a new info, Iíll 
    update this walkthrough/FAQ right away.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4. What are the most powerful equipments in the game?
    
    Here they are, the Excalibur (sword), Samurai Armor, Samurai Helmet and the 
    Aegis Shield. See Super Tips at the Temple of Mana section in the walkthrough. 
    Note: youíll get the Excalibur automatically.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5. What level do you recommend should I be when I battle Julius?
    
    You should be at least Level 50. You wonít have any problems at all when 
    youíre at this level.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6. Is there a way to cure Moog?
    
    Yes. Ride your Chocobo and then jump off again. Youíre Moog status should now 
    be removed.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    7. Where do you think is the best place to level up?
    
    I leveled up Sumo in 2 places. First, in the snowfield area. I kept running 
    back and forth beating all those wolves, walruses, and Snowmen. The second one 
    is near Julius. I kept on killing those elephants. Either way youíll get good 
    experience points and GP.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    8. How much time do I need to finish this game?
    
    In my opinion and in my experience, it will take you about 10-12 hours to 
    finish the game with complete equipments and a high level.
