    The End Credits / Your Monkey Level FAQ v1.0 (December 9th, 2001 @ 7:16pm)
    
    by Matt Russell <matt@amphibious.net>
    
    
    Frequently Asked Questions:
    
    1. What is the point of the game during the credits?
    
    As far as I can tell there isn't one, other than to provide some form of mild
    entertainment to get you to actually *watch* the credits.  This is similar to
    movies putting in out-takes and "hidden scenes."  Of course, the most important
    thing about the game is to get a new Monkey Level and submit it! :)
    
    2. How do I skip the end credits game?
    
    Simply press A, this can be done at ANY time during the end credits.
    Kulesa says, "The first time you beat a mode you have to run through the
    hallway."  Anyone want to confirm this?
    
    3. How are you getting so many bananas?
    
    My basic technique is to run along the side of the track until the bananas
    appear.  Then I'll bounce back and forth until the letters start dropping, at 
    this point, if there is time I get myself right next to a wall to reduce the 
    number of letters I hit.  And repeat.
    
    4. How are you getting so few bananas?
    
    My technique for this is running straight ahead until the letters start
    dropping keeping a rough picture of the depth that each letter has dropped,
    then I work from left to right trying to hit each one of them.
    
    
    Specials Notes: 
    
    1. Sometimes, very rarely, letters will land in the same space and overlap in
    an interesting way.  For example:
    
    The letter T _____  and the letter Y  __  __ will overlap to make _____
                |_   _|                   \ \/ /                     |     |
                  | |                      \  /                       \   /
                  | |                       ||                         | |
                  |_|                       ||                         |_|
    
    2. Clumps of letters in close proximity will actually bounce you forward
    instead of backward.  It's typically a good idea to avoid these clumps
    unless you are trying to reach a certain monkey level and you really need
    to be knocked down 20+ bananas.

    I believe that negative levels occur every 500 points and positive levels
    occur every 25.  If this assumption is correct then the chart is complete from
    -4500 to 1225!
    
    Please keep in mind that this is not guaranteed to be a complete or accurate 
    list, some of this information is coming from people on the net so I can't be
    100% sure that it's correct.  If you have a score that doesn't match up PLEASE
    let me know so I can make changes.  Please include a name you would like to be
    credited by or else I'll use the part before the @ in your email address.
