II. Boss Strategies
===============================================================================

You should take the bosses out in this order: Start with Toad Man, then
Bright Man, Pharaoh Man, Ring Man, Crystal Man, Napalm Man, Stone Man and
at last Charage Man.

Toad Man
========
Weakness: Ring Boomerang
Get Weapon: Rain Flush

Toad Man is very easy, if you know what to do. Just use your standard weapon
on him. Fire at him and he will jump. Dodge the jump and shoot at him again.
Repeat the procces until he is defeated. If you have Ring Boomerang, use it
to kill him faster.

Bright Man
==========
Weakness: Rain Flush
Get Weapon: Flash Stopper

Bright Man is a bit harder than Toad Man, but he is not a hard boss. Just use
Rain Flush and dodge his jumps. Sometimes he freezes you and jump on you to 
cause damage.

Pharaoh Man
===========
Weakness: Flash Stopper
Get Weapon: Pharaoh Shot

An easy battle if you have Flash Stopper. Just use Flash Stopper to stop him
and fire at him. When he unfreeze use it again and fire at him.

Ring Man
========
Weakness: Pharaoh Shot
Get Weapon: Ring Boomerang

Charage up Pharaoh Shot fully and try to make him land on it. This strategy
worked for me but if does not work for you, just try to hit him with Pharaoh
Shot.

Antenna
=======
Weakness: None
Get Weapon: None

Shoot at the ball with your Mega Buster when it is exposed. Not Hard.

Ballade (1st Time)
==================
Weakness: None
Get Weapon: None

This boss is not very hard, just shoot at him with a fully charged Mega
Buster when he is not moving.

Crystal Man
===========
Weakness: Charge Kick
Get Weapon: Crystal Eye

If you have the Charge Kick use it. If you don't have it use your Mega
Buster. He is a bit hard.

Napalm Man
==========
Weakness: Crystal Eye
Get Weapon: Napalm Bomb

Use the Crystal Eye against him.  If you shoot against the wall, the
Crystal Eye will spilt into four smal Crystal Eyes.

Stone Man
=========
Weakness: Napalm Bomb
Get Weapon: Power Stone

Try to jump over his stones and use the Napalm Bomb, when youre near and
when he is not doing anything. He is quite hard.

Charge Man
==========
Weakness: Power Stone
Get Weapon: Charge Kick

Use the Power Stone when he is not flashing or charging. It's quite
hard to jump over him too. Hard.

Ballade (2nd time)
==================
Weakness: None
Get Weapon: Ballade Cracker

Use a fully charged Mega Buster or Paraoh Shot. Try to make him not land
on you whe nhe jumps.

Cannon
======
Weakness: None
Get Weapon: None

Jump to up on the cannon and shoot it with your Mega Buster. Easy.

Crane
=====
Weakness: Almost All Weapons
Get Weapon: None

Very easy. Shoot at it's mid section with any weapon.

Eyes (1)
========
Weakness: None
Get Weapon: None

Shoot at the real eye with Mega Buster. If you shoot at the fake eyes
it will not take any damage.

Eyes (2)
========
Weakness: None
Get Weapon: None

A bit harder than before, but try to use the same strategies.

Next you will fight all bosses again. Use the same strategies as before
