1) Super Monkey Ball is a game that appears to be aimed at 5 year old
   children at first glance.  I mean, come on, there are Monkys running
   around in balls for godness sake.  However, once you move past the first
   couple of stages in Beginner, you will see the difficulty start to
   increase.  By the end of Beginner settings, you will soon realize that
   you have agame that will challenge your most supreme gaming skills (it is
   Beginner that helps you to realize this!).  Add in three great party
   games along with three unlocable Mini Games, you have one hell of a great
   single player or multiple player romp fit for all ages!

   The following is the exact story given from Sega's website on the game of
   Super Monkey Ball, and is in no way the work of Brian P. Sulpher.

The Monkeys were out and about enjoying some Bananas one day, when suddenly
the ground shook from a huge impact!  The dust cleared to reveal some open
balls on the ground, and the curious Monkeys decided to check them out.
After setting foot into the balls, they quickly closed up to jet off into
the sky!  Where are the Monkeys going, who has sent the balls, and what is
the purpose behind all of this?  No one knows for sure, but these Monkeys
are off to the floors in the sky to find Bananas and have an incredible
adventure!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------Characters-----------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2) This section will give a brief look at each character, and what their
   relations are to one another.


                                o------o
                                | AiAi |
                                o------o

This guy is the Cool Monkey of the group.  It was through his charm that he
won the heart of MeeMee instead of GonGon (they were rivals when trying for
her heart, they now are friends) winning her.  He has the most average
abilities of all the monkies when it comes to the Party and Mini Games.


                               o--------o
                               | MeeMee |
                               o--------o

This girl is the Pretty Monkey of the group.    She had to choose between
AiAi and GonGon, and after a tough choice she went with AiAi.  She tends to
have good control, but tends to be a lightweight when physical forces are
involved.


                               o--------o
                               | GonGon |
                               o--------o
                               
This brute is the Strong Monkey of the group.    He was involved in the
contest with AiAi (his rival at the time) for MeeMee's heart, which he lost
out on.  He is now good friends with the other Monkeys, and he is always
willing to lend a hand.  Always one to use his strength to his advantage, it
often makes situations where touch is needed harder for him.


                                o------o
                                | Baby |
                                o------o

This Monkey is the Cute Monkey of the group.  This Monkey is a somewhat
mysterious enigma, with no one knowing exactly where it is from.  It is
rumoured to be the child of AiAi and MeeMee that has come from the future
back into the past to help the others.  Baby tends to try and take shortcuts
whenever it can, but it will often suffer from this attack plan.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

3) This section will look at all the Men Selections, and what each choice
   leads to in the game (what each choice means).

4) This section will cover the ten floors of Beginner, plus the three extra
   stages for clearing the ten floors without dying.  I will attempt to map
   as many Floors as I can, but some are a little too complicated for my
   ASCII skills at this time.  Also keep in mind that this walkthrough will
   take you along the path to many of the Bananas, but they are optional
   collects (keep this in mind on the harder levels).

   The fastest path through Beginner is as follows: 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

This being the first floor, the programmers give you a challenge so
laughable, many two year olds could beat it.  Anyway, head straight from the
starting point, grab the first Banana in front of you, cut right for a
Banana, and then left for another Banana.  Now you should head full steam
for the GOAL to finish the level, and as you go through the gate, you will
collect the Banana on the far side of the gate with your momentum.

A fun, random note for this level that is in fact possible to die.  The
corners have a slight upturn to them, so you can launch yourself over the
walls with a little speed.

Floor Two is the first floor to offer two completely separate exits to one
level.  The walkthrough here will be split into the BLUE GOAL, and the GREEN
GOAL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~BLUE GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To get this exit, head around the large hole in the middle of the floor,
grab the Banana as you go, grab the Banana by the back wall, and then go
through the GOAL to head off to Floor Three!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~GREEN GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At the start, go forward a little bit, turn around 180 degrees, run towards
the ramp on the wall behind you, and start up it.  Once you have hit the
small flat part on top you will need to pull back on the Analog Stick to
slow your Monkey Ball down, and as you fall off the ramp (try to be dead
centre off the ramp) be sure to pull directly backwards.  Once you hit the
platform, do not touch the Analog Stick, let your Monkey bounce to a
complete stop, and then go through the GOAL to warp to Floor Five!

Floor Three has two straightaways beside one another, and you start on the
straightaway right beside the GOAL on the other straightaway.  You can not
jump the wall, so you will need to head down the straightaway (either
direction), navigate the curve as it turns you around 180 degrees (you get
two Bananas no matter which direction you go), and then head down the
straightaway in front of you to reach the GOAL to go onto Floor Four!

-Keep in mind that the three platforms are actually connected, but are drawn
 separately to illustrate the next point.

-The middle platform moves back and forth with the centre of it pivoting.
 This means it moves like this:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION ONE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    /
   /
  /
 /

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION TWO~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  |
  |
  |
  |

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION THREE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 \
  \
   \
    \

-After POSITION THREE, it will move back to POSITION TWO, and then on to
 POSITION ONE.  Keep in mind that the large moving platform will continue to
 move at all times, and it never once comes to a rest.

-Another quick note for you to know is that the seven Bananas will NOT move
 with the platform, so be wary as you collect them along your path to the
 GOAL.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

This method calls for you to head forward from the start, move onto the
swinging platform, and then heading forward through the Bananas towards the
end of the platform.  Once you arrive, you will need to wait for the
platform to swing back till it lines up with the final platform, at which
point you will roll your Monkey onto said platform to break the tape on the
GOAL to get to Floor Five!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

This method requires the player to hold forward before the timer starts,
cut right to sneak onto the swinging platform, head down it at full speed
collecting the Bananas if you wish, and then cut to the right side of the
platform so you can sneak onto the third and final platform before heading
straight for the GOAL to get to Floor Five!

There is no gate here, so all you need to do is collect the 50 Bananas on
this Floor before time expires.  Anyway, go up the outside row on the right
(in this diagram), turn left to get the next outside row, down the next
outside row, and then turn right to finish the outside row.  Now you need to
repeat the same process for the inside row, collect the solo Banana in the
middle of the square, and then head up the off-shoot section of the Floor to
get the last Banana (be sure to have enough speed to get up the mini-hill to
the Banana).  Now you are off to Floor Six!

-On the map here, the arrows going along the paths indicate the hill slope.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go down the slope ahead of you, slow down near the bottom, get the two
Bananas, and then get lined up for the next hill.  Go down it, slow down at
the bottom, get the two Bananas, and then line up for the next hill.  Now
head down the next hill (they get thinner and steeper as you go), slow down
near the bottom, collect the two Bananas, and then line up with the next
hill.  Go down the hill, slow down near the bottom, collect the two Bananas,
and line up for the final hill.  Head straight down the VERY steep hill (try
to be in the exact centre), and then roll through the goal to go on to Floor
Seven!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Right at the start you will turn right to roll off the ledge to fall to the
one below you.  Next, you will use your momentum to bounce down to the ledge
below that one.  As soon as you are over the lowest ledge in the chain, pull
back on the Analog Stick to slow your forward momentum, and then go down the
last slope to go down to the goal for the much faster (but harder) pass to
Floor Seven!

-On the map here, the arrows going along the paths indicate the hill slope.

Start off by collecting the four Bananas on the bottom level, climb the
slope near the edge for another Bananas, and then collect the two Bananas on
the seoncd level.  Climb the slop near the edge for another Banana, get the
two Bananas on the third level, and then climb the slope near the edge to
get the Banana Bunch (worth 10 Bananas! ^_^).  Now you just need to
carefully collect the remaining three Bananas before going through the goal
to reach Floor Eight!

-Note that the 25 squares (each with a solo Banana) move in and out in a
 steady pattern.

To beat this level, we are going to concentrate on just reaching the GOAL.
Wait for the square to come to you, get on board, and walk slowly forward
with the movement of the square back to the centre.  Once the squares have
rejoined, run directly across the large suqare towards the opposite corner
(start to slow as you near it).  Once on it, walk with the square as it
heads toward the GOAL, and when it reaches, go through the GOAL to get to
Floor Nine!

You can also use the same method of movements to get the Banana Bunches on
the platforms to your left and right from the Starting Point.

For this level, head right along the floor till you reach a red arrow on the
ground.  At this point you should charge down the ramp towards the jump at
the bottom, and after you go airbourne (you will get the Banana Bunch if
this is done properly), you should start to pull back on the Analog Stick.
As soon as you make contact with the wall, you need to change your pressure
on the Analog Stick so you will be trying to go toward the wall you just
hit.  Once you are righted, go through the GOAL to reach the Final Floor of
Beginner; Floor Ten!

-On the map here, the arrows going along the paths indicate the hill slope.

-I also suggest that you ignore the Bananas here unless you just need a few
 to get to a 1-Up.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Head straight down the narrow path, turn right, line yourself up, and then
head down the narrow path to the next platform.  turn left, line yourself
up, and then head down the stairs (take care not to go too fast because you
will be unable to stop your momentum), and then turn right to go across one
of the narrow paths before lining yourself up with the next slope.  Head up
the slope (if you start to wobble, you will likely fall off due to the
increased slope here), and then turn left to find the next path.  Carefully
wind your way around the curvy path, and you will arrive at the GOAL to
finish Beginner Mode!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Head straight down the narrow path, turn right, and go off the ledge ahead of
you to land on the platform below (pull back to slow your descent so you will
not fall off the course).  Go across one of the narrow paths before lining
yourself up with the next slope.  Head up the slope (if you start to wobble,
you will likely fall off due to the increased slope here), and then turn left
to find the next path.  Carefully wind your way around the curvy path, and you
 will arrive at the GOAL to finish Beginner Mode!

BUT WAIT!!!  If you did it without dying, you will get the honour of going
on to try the three Beginner Extra Stages!

This level has moving platforms that change their shape.  Here are the forms
they can take.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION ONE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 +----+------+
 |    |      |
 |    |      |
 |    |      |
 |    |      |
 |    |      |
 |    |      |
 +----+------+

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION TWO~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 +----+
 |    |
 |    |
 |    |
 |    |
 |    |
 |    |
 +----+

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION THREE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 +------+----+
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 +------+----+

The platforms start in POSITION ONE, go to POSITION TWO, and then to
POSITION THREE.  They will then go back to TWO, then ONE, then TWO, then
THREE, and so on.  This is because the platforms slide back and forth in a
staggered manner, and when they hit the wall, the larger section of the
platform goes underneath the smaller piece.  Once the platforms starts
moving again, it comes out the back due to momentum.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Get onto the platform as it comes near your platform, and start to pick your
way across the platforms carefully.  Remember to get on the solid platform
pieces when you reach the wall, and then continue onwards.  You will reach
the far platform and bust the tape of the GOAL to go on to the next Floor!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

This method requires you to run across the platforms on a diagonal to the
last moving platform, where you wait for it to reach the far ledge.  Go onto
that platform to the GOAL to reach the next Floor!

-The GOAL swings around in this level, so you will need to take that into
 account when trying to reach the GOAL.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wait till the timer hits 24.00 remaining, and the GOAL will reach a point in
the swinging motion that is barely moving.  This is the time to go flying in
to break the tape, and go to the final Beginner Extra Floor!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Run forward immediately as the level starts, and start to shade to the right
as you approach the GOAL.  You will break the tape in under two seconds, but
this method requires some practice to master.  Anyway, onto the final
Beginner Extra Floor!

This level is the logo of Amusement Vision (the programming team that works
for SEGA).  It rocks all around in the air, and it is shiny so it reflects
all light that touches it (these make it fairly hard to control yourself on
it).

Head forward upon starting, drop onto the shiny surface, head between the
"a" and the "v" cut out of the floor, and turn right when you get past the
end of the "v".  Keep turning right till you see the GOAL, and you should
head through it to finish off the Beginner Extra Floors!

Keep in mind that a slower pace will make it easier to control your Monkey
than speeding through like a maniac.


   You have completely finished Beginner Mode, so you must be proud of
   yourself, huh?  Well I say to you that Advanced beckons with more Floors,
   harder challenges, more Warps, and even more Extra Floors for you to
   conquer!  Step into the next section to face the challenge of ADVANCED!!!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------Advanced-----------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

5) This section will cover the thirty floors of Advanced, plus the five
   extra stages for clearing the thirty floors without dying.  I will
   attempt to map as many Floors as I can, but some are a little too
   complicated for my ASCII skills at this time.  Also keep in mind that
   this walkthrough will take you along the path to many of the Bananas, but
   they are optional collects (keep this in mind on the harder levels).

   The fastest path through Advanced is as follows: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10,
   11, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 25, 28, 29, 30.

Banana along with your momentum.

Before the level starts, hold UP so you take off at full speed.  Go over the
two humps at top speed to get the Banana Bunch in the air, and then slalom
through the five barriers in your path.  Next you need to go through the
bumper field to arrive at the narrow path to the GOAL.  You can slow down to
carefully move on the path, or you can speed directly at the hole with some
decent speed to bounce across the gap to the GOAL so you can advance to
Floor Three!

The two squares in the middle will move back and forth, from side to side.
From the start, go to the right to get on the platform that is there.  Go to
the left side of it, get onto the next platform as it moves in front of
yours, and then go onto the far ledge.  Then you just need to go roll on
through the GOAL.

-Keep in mind that the three platforms are actually connected, but are drawn
 separately to illustrate the next point.

-The middle platform moves back and forth with the centre of it pivoting.
 This means it moves like this:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION ONE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    /
   /
  /
 /

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION TWO~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  |
  |
  |
  |

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION THREE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 \
  \
   \
    \

-After POSITION THREE, it will move back to POSITION TWO, and then on to
 POSITION ONE.  Keep in mind that the large moving platform will continue to
 move at all times, and it never once comes to a rest.

-Another quick note for you to know is that the seven Bananas will NOT move
 with the platform, so be wary as you collect them along your path to the
 GOAL.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

This method calls for you to head forward from the start, move onto the
swinging platform, and then heading forward through the Bananas towards the
end of the platform.  Once you arrive, you will need to wait for the
platform to swing back till it lines up with the final platform, at which
point you will roll your Monkey onto said platform to break the tape on the
GOAL to get to Floor Five!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

This method requires the player to hold forward before the timer starts,

cut right to sneak onto the swinging platform, head down it at full speed
collecting the Bananas if you wish, and then cut to the right side of the
platform so you can sneak onto the third and final platform before heading
straight for the GOAL to get to Floor Five!

There is no gate here, so all you need to do is collect the 50 Bananas on
this Floor before time expires.  Anyway, go up the outside row on the right
(in this diagram), turn left to get the next outside row, down the next
outside row, and then turn right to finish the outside row.  Now you need to
repeat the same process for the inside row, collect the solo Banana in the
middle of the square, and then head up the off-shoot section of the Floor to
get the last Banana (be sure to have enough speed to get up the mini-hill to
the Banana).  Now you are off to Floor Six!

-The solid line halfway through the floor diagram here indicates that it
 will fold up and down, up and down.

Floor Six offers two gates to exit through.  The walkthrough here will be
split into the BLUE GOAL, and the GREEN GOAL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~BLUE GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To get this exit, go to the edge of the folding floor, and as the floor
starts to rise up, go onto it.  Now you need to rush to the GOAL quickly
before the slant of the floor becomes too severe for your Monkey Ball to
climb it (if you miss, steer away from the centre hole so you can make
another attempt).  Once you get through the GOAL, onto Floor Seven!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~GREEN GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At the start, go forward a little bit, turn around 180 degrees, run towards
the ramp on the wall behind you, and start up it.  Once you have hit the
small flat part on top you will need to pull back on the Analog Stick to
slow your Monkey Ball down, and as you fall off the ramp (try to be dead
centre off the ramp) be sure to pull directly backwards.  Once you hit the
platform, do not touch the Analog Stick, let your Monkey bounce to a
complete stop, and then go through the GOAL to warp to Floor Ten!

This level requires the player to simply follow the path till you reach the
GOAL.  This level even has a small lip on both sides of the path that help
to keep your Monkey Ball on the path, which is good because the path is
somewhat lengthy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SHORTCUTS~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

-At the start, you can go off the right wall to land on the ledge below to
 cut a few seconds off of your time before heading along the normal path.
 When you start to turn around a large curve, you will see a ledge below
 that you can also jump to cut a few more seconds off as well.

This level has a downhill with walls sticking out.  You will need to slalom
the walls, collect the Bananas as you go, and then go through the GOAL.  To
get the X2 bonus for finishing the floor in under half the time, you will
need to hold UP as you go down the hill to speed to the GOAL in time.  If
you just want to assure you get through the level, hold DOWN as much as you
like so you will get their safer.

-Note that the 20 squares (each with a solo Banana) move in and out in a
 steady pattern.

To beat this level, we are going to concentrate on just reaching the GOAL.
Wait for the square to come to you, get on board, and walk slowly forward
with the movement of the square back to the centre.  Once the squares have
rejoined, run left around the cross, and then head towards the corner square
nearest the GOAL.  You can also go to the corner piece where it goes to a
Banana Bunch, and then comes back, where you will head for the square
nearest the GOAL.  Now ride the square to the GOAL, and break the tape to
get to Floor Ten!

This level has no gate for you to go through, you just need to collect as
many Bananas as you can before time expires.  Anyway, on this level you need
to contend with the rippling floor as the middle kicks wave after wave at
you.  Go around the outside ring of Bananas in a steady speed (this will get
the first 30 Bananas), and then you will need to fight more severe wave
levels as you move to the inside ring (you are closer to the centre of the
wave producer).  You will need to be dead on in your Banana collecting here
or else you will not get all 50 Bananas.

This level is shaped like a guitar, with the "strings" being the path that
you will have to traverse.  Each string gets a rating on it, with 1.0 being
the easiest, and 0.1 being the hardest.  From the start point looking at the
strings, the easiest to hardest is left to right.

Floor Eleven offers two gates to exit through.  The walkthrough here will be
split into the BLUE GOAL, and the GREEN GOAL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~BLUE GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For this path, you can choose from the 1.0, 0.4, 0.3, 0.2, and 0.1 wires
going across the wide expanse.  I suggest you begin working on the 1.0 wire,
and then move to the slimmer wires where Bananas are available to be
snagged (as you improve in skill).  Go across the wire in a somewhat fast
fashion, slow down near the far ledge, turn right, go forward, turn left,
turn left again, go up the slope, and go through the GOAL to reach Floor
Twelve!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~GREEN GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For this warp, you need to take the right-most wire (it is a 0.1).  Go right
from the start, line up your path across the wire, and then zoom across the
razor thin wire to reach the GOAL as you collect 63 Bananas total along the
way!  You will warp to Floor 14!

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Drop into the bowl in front of you, and proceed to roll around the edge of
the bowl to break the tape on the GOAL to go on to Floor Thirteen!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

From the start, launch your Monkey Ball off of the left corner of the ledge
where the starting point is so you go through the GOAL on the fly to get to
Floor Thirteen!

This level requires you to move onto the grey launchers while facing
forward.  This will allow your Monkey to move onto the higher ledge ahead of
them.  The launchers will go off when the red sliders on the wall reach the
same area as the launcher.

Walk forward from the start to get onto the launcher before the red sliders
reach it (launch up onto the next ledge).  Repeat the same procedure on this
ledge, and then run full tilt off the jump ahead to bust through the tape on
the GOAL to make it to Floor Fourteen!

This floor is multi-spoked, with each spoke moving in correspondence to how
you tilt the floor.  If you tilt right, all the spokes will move right, and
the same holds true for all other directions.

There are two methods of doing this floor, and both are quite easy to do if
you just pay attention to the position of the spokes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~METHOD #1~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This method is simply done by walking around the perimeter of the platform
so the pieces ahead of you keep moving in as you shift around.  Once you get
behind the GOAL, bust the tape to head off to Floor Fifteen!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~METHOD #2~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I like to call this one the "Wiggler Way".  Start by going in where two
spokes cut your advancement off.  Now get positioned so you are almost
between them, and then slowly move the level back and forth until you slip
through the barriers.  Repeat this step one more time on the next spot, and
then break the tape as you fly off to Floor Fifteen!

On this level, the slope becomes more severe with every section of the path
you reach.  The top left corner of this map gets so severe that if you go too
low onto the edge, your Monkey will be unable to climb back up (you will
lose a Monkey).

To start off we head straight, turn right 180 degrees (around the pit), up
the next straightaway, and then turn left 180 degrees (around the pit).  Now
head straight once more, turn right 180 degrees (around the pit), and then
go straight.  Turn left 180 degrees (around the pit), go straight, turn
right 180 degrees (be sure to make this one tight to the pit to avoid the
unsalvageable position near the edge), and then go straight to the GOAL where
you need to go partially over the edge to reach the GOAL.  Congratulations
on beating on e of the hardest Advanced levels there are, and go on ahead to
Floor Sixteen!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SHORTCUTS~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At the start you can cut right to fall to the ledge below, saving the travel
down a straightaway, a turn, and then another straightaway.  Just be sure to
get full control of your Monkey before starting out on the rest of the
course.

When making the turns after the straightaways run out, be sure to hug the
pits tightly.  This will ensure minimal influence of the severe slopes at
the end of each section.  You should also attempt the corners while moving
slower than faster.

This level is a series of conveyor belts that you will need to cross in
under thirty seconds to advance to Floor Seventeen!

Go forward from the start, go left onto conveyor belt #1 (it comes against
you), and go straight.  Get onto conveyor belt #2 (this one goes with you),
and go straight.  Go left onto conveyor belt #3 (it comes against you), and
go straight.  Get onto conveyor belt #4 (this one goes with you), and go
straight.  Get off the last conveyor belt to find the GOAL waiting for you
to break the tape to head off to Floor Seventeen!

This level has a similar design to Floor Ten of Beginner, but the shortcut
from that Floor does not exist here.  There is a shortcut here, but it is a
somewhat difficult one to pull off.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hold UP right at the start to go across the narrow path, turn right, line
yourself up, and then go across the narrow path to the far platform.  Get
lined up for the next narrow path, cross the narrow path (this is a hill, so
do not start wobbling or you will die), cross one of the small bridges, and
then line yourself up for the ride down the stairs (be sure to slow down
about halfway down so you do not fly off the far side of the far platform
due to your momentum).  Turn left to find the winding, narrow path that you
will need to go across fairly fast (just be sure to use your faster speed on
the small straightaways of this path).  But the tape of the GOAL to go on to
Floor Eighteen!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hold UP right at the start to go across the narrow path, turn right, line
yourself up, and then go across the narrow path to the far platform.  Get
lined up for the next narrow path, cross the narrow path (this is a hill, so
do not start wobbling or you will die), cross the small bridge closer to the
outside edge of the level, and then go forward off the platform.  Be sure to
start holding DOWN to slow your descent to the platform (this way your
momentum will not carry you off).  Once you are there, just slip through the
GOAL to go on to Floor Eighteen!

-This level is shaped like a Treble Clef.  These are used in musical sheets.

Floor Eighteen offers three gates to exit through.  The walkthrough here will be
split into the BLUE GOAL, GREEN GOAL, and the RED GOAL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~BLUE GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Head down the slope quickly to catch the Blue Goal in about 12 to 16
seconds.  This will take you to Floor Nineteen!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~GREEN GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You can chase the Green Goal down by flying down the Treble Clef on the path
from the start.  You should catch it around 30 to 35 seconds after beginning
the level.  This will warp you to Floor Twenty!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~RED GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is impossible to chase this one down from the start on the normal path, so
you will have to take a shortcut.  At the start, go off the right side between
the first two arrows on the sloped wall.  As you land, be sure to be over the
Treble Clef, and then move to the right side of the hill (as you are facing up
it right now).  Walk up the hill slowly, and the Red Goal should run right over
your Monkey, and send you warping ahead a whopping SEVEN levels to start out on

This is an upgraded version of Beginner Floor Nine.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Start by going down the slope to jump the gap, turn right, and then get on
the moving platform to go to the far platform.  From there you will head to
the next ramp and jump, and you can weave through the bumpers for a Banana
Bunch if you wish before you got over the jump (collecting another Banana
Bunch).  When you land, be sure to pull back until you hit the wall, at
which point you will push towards the wall so you stay on the platform.  Now
head for the GOAL to get to Floor Twenty!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

At the start, go forward towards the edge of the ramp, turn around, and then
run off the back of the jutting part of the ledge.  Bounce off the flat
platform, roll down the ramp, use the jump to cross the gap, and then go
through the GOAL to go on to Floor Twenty!

There is no gate here, so all you need to do is collect the 40 Bananas on
this Floor before time expires.  Anyway, go left to get the left most Banana
by going diagonally through the bumpers (2 Bananas).  Go up to the next
diagonal row of Bananas to go down it, and then just follow this pattern to
efficiently get all 40 Bananas before time expires.  Head off to Floor
Twenty-One!

-The arrows here indicate the motion of the bumpers direction.  The first
 rectangle has ten bumpers that patrol clockwise.  The second rectangle has
 ten bumpers that patrol counter-clockwise.  The shared side of each
 rectangle has the combined bumper total to worry about, so the space gets
 less between bumpers.

Go forward to grab the Banana Bunch, go left, turn right, and then walk up
the narrow path at about the same pace as the bumpers.  When you near the
turn to the right, you will have to follow your bumper closely on the turn
(the other set of bumpers will come in behind you), or you can let one
bumper from the other set go in, and then you MUST make the turn (the next
bumper in your set is coming fast!).  After carefully walking between the
two rather close bumpers, turn left to follow your bumper till you reach the
turn where you go left, and then go right to the GOAL to head off to Floor
Twenty-Two!

Here you have a funnel-like level, with a hole in the middle of the floor,
with a slope leading into it.  You can get some Bananas here if you want.
To beat the level, go right into the funnel, run forward, lean into the
corner, and then start to climb out of the funnel to reach the GOAL to go to
Floor Twenty-Three!

This floor is just riddled with holes.  you can hop these little holes with
some speed, but this is very dangerous procedure due to the possible
unintended landing zones.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Start by go on a diagonal line between the holes in the floor to the right,
and then go to the outside edge of the platform to go around the larger
holes.  Once you come to a spot where a square outline is cut out of the
floor, turn right to go forward until you see the edge, where you need to
turn left.  After going forward till the ramp on your right goes to the flat
platform is where you turn right to go across the narrow path to go up the
ramp at the far side.  Turn right to go along another narrow path until you
have to turn right before coming to another right turn.  Head across the
bridge to see the GOAL, and you can go straight through it, or you can go
around to get a Banana Bunch behind the GOAL before heading off to Floor
Twenty-Four!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

From the start you need to go right around the small squares to go over the
gap ahead, and then continue forward till you are by the ramp that goes to
the flat platform below.  Go across the narrow path to go up the ramp at the
far side.  Turn right to go along another narrow path until you have to turn
right before coming to another right turn.  Head across the bridge to see
the GOAL, and you can go straight through it, or you can go around to get a
Banana Bunch behind the GOAL before heading off to Floor Twenty-Four!

-The middle section of the floor with the 13 Bananas hovering over it will
 tilt back and forth in an attempt to throw your balance off enough that
 your Monkey will take the swan dive to the Earth below.

To beat this level, you need to head out onto the shifting platform with
some speed, and try to stay on the section that is higher to start (that
would be the right side), and as it shifts, you need to fight the effects of
gravity.  If you hold on, you will be on the left side as you run to the far
platform where the GOAL awaits you to send you off to Floor Twenty-Five!

Floor Twenty-Three offers two gates to exit through.  The walkthrough here
will be split into the BLUE GOAL, and the GREEN GOAL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~BLUE GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For this path, weave through the bumpers in the first couple of sections,
go past the jumps and the hole to climb the slope ahead of you.  Now you
need to get past the pistons that move based on which way the level is
tilted.  Tilt the level right before sneaking my the first one, tilt the
level left to sneak by the second piston, tilt the level right to get by the
third piston, and then tilt the level left to go by the final piston.  Head
past the mini-holes in the floor.  Run straight up the slopes, turn left,
and then run down the hill to hop the gap.  Be sure not to be going full
speed, or the party ball on the GOAL will bounce your Monkey out into thin
air.  Head off to Floor Twenty-Six!

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~GREEN GOAL SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For this path, weave through the bumpers in the first couple of sections,
go past the jumps and the hole to climb the slope ahead of you.  Now you
need to get past the pistons that move based on which way the level is
tilted.  Tilt the level right before sneaking my the first one, tilt the

past the mini-holes in the floor.  Run straight up the slopes, turn left,
and then run down the hill to hop the gap.  Be sure not to be going full
speed, or the party ball on the GOAL will bounce your Monkey out into thin
air.

Go around the GOAL to the narrow path, make your way carefully but steadily
along it, and then pick between the paths on the long straightaway you come
from (they rank in the following order of closest to you: 0.1, 0.2, 0.3,
0.4, and 1.0).  When you reach the straightaway on the far side, run forward
to go over the bumps on the platform ahead (be careful to not hit too hard
or else you may be launched off the side), and then break the tape at the
GOAL to warp on ahead to Floor Twenty-Eight!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~GREEN GOAL FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For this path, weave through the bumpers in the first couple of sections,
go past the jumps and the hole to climb the slope ahead of you.  Now you
need to get past the pistons that move based on which way the level is
tilted.  Tilt the level right before sneaking my the first one, tilt the
level left to sneak by the second piston, tilt the level right to get by the
third piston, and then tilt the level left to go by the final piston.  Head
past the mini-holes in the floor, turn 180 degrees, and then take a full run
on the left side of the platform towards the Green Goal that is below you.
Pull back a small amount in the air to assure that the Party Ball does not
launch you into thin air, and then break the tape on the Green Goal to
advance to Floor Twenty-Eight!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~GREEN GOAL FASTEST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

yes, there is an even faster method for getting to the Green Goal, and it is
safe than the previous method to boot!  Right fromt he start roll forward at 
the wall that prohibits your Monkey from reaching the Green Goal.  Angle the
Monkey Ball so it will aim for the ramped portion of the hole in the floor so
the Monkey Ball will get airbourne, clearing the fence to land on the far 
side, allowing the player to roll through the gate in mere seconds!

WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go down the straightaway, grabbing the six Bananas as you go, and then turn
right to start your ride down the spiral.  When you reach the approach to
the GOAL, you can try to go through the tape clean (if you miss, you will
lose a Monkey), or you can go behind the GOAL to the flat portion on the
platform to grab a Banana Bunch, and then go through the reverse side of the
GOAL to get to Floor Twenty-Seven

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

This method requires you to run forward right from the start, and around the
time remaining area of 56 to 57 seconds (56.00 to 57.00) you should swerve
your Monkey Ball off the ledge on the left side.  As you fall down, try to
modify your flight path in mid-air so your Ball will pass through the tape
unmolested by the Party Ball.  Now head off to Floor Twenty-Seven!

The easiest way to beat this level is to hold UP before the level starts,
go left after jumping down to get on the narrow path, and when you start to
launch off that platform, aim back to the right to pass right through the
GOAL and then you are off to Floor Twenty-Eight!

-The two set of spikes with the Bananas will move back and forth on this
 level.

Go forward to get the first Banana, wait for the spike ahead to move out of
your way, go forward, and then wait for the spike ahead of you to move.
Repeat these steps till you come out the far side, where you need to go
forward to go through the GOAL to "advance" (get it!?  ADVANCE, Advanced?!
hahahaha...  never mind then!) to Floor Twenty-Eight!

-The eight platforms that form the "doughnut" around the centre hole will
 tilt left and then right.  Not all tilt the same direction at the same time
 either.

To beat this level, you will need to head out onto the platforms as they tip
back and forth.  When you reach a platform that is tipped on a large angle,
just fight gravity to stop from falling out, and then continue your journey
to the GOAL.  You are now headed off for the final Floor of Advanced, Floor
Thirty!

This level looks absolutely terrifying to anyone the first time they arrive
on it, and with good reason as it will take many of your lives and continues
before you learn how to play it well.

When the level starts, turn right ever so slightly so you are pointing just
to the right of the GOAL.  At 28 seconds remaining, start to go forward
across the small platforms when they line up, and cut left toward the GOAL.
You will not fall through the gap if you go fast enough as your momentum
will be enough to bounce you through the GOAL!  Congratulations on finishing
Advanced Mode!

BUT WAIT!!!  If you did it without dying, you will get the honour of going
on to try the five Advanced Extra Stages!

This level has moving platforms that change their shape.  Here are the forms
they can take.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION ONE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 +----+------+
 |    |      |
 |    |      |
 |    |      |
 |    |      |

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION TWO~~

 |    |
 |    |
 |    |

 |    |
 |    |

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION THREE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 +------+----+
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 +------+----+

The platforms start in POSITION ONE, go to POSITION TWO, and then to
POSITION THREE.  They will then go back to TWO, then ONE, then TWO, then
THREE, and so on.  This is because the platforms slide back and forth in a
staggered manner, and when they hit the wall, the larger section of the
platform goes underneath the smaller piece.  Once the platforms starts
moving again, it comes out the back due to momentum.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Get onto the platform as it comes near your platform, and start to pick your
way across the platforms carefully.  Remember to get on the solid platform
pieces when you reach the wall, and then continue onwards.  You will reach
the far platform and bust the tape of the GOAL to go on to the next Floor!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

This method requires you to run across the platforms on a diagonal to the
last moving platform, where you wait for it to reach the far ledge.  Go onto
that platform to the GOAL to reach the next Floor!

-The GOAL swings around in this level, so you will need to take that into
 account when trying to reach the GOAL.

-The GOAL has an extended wall, but turns at the same speed.  This means that
 if you make any connection with the outer parts of the wall, you will be
 batted off into space, and one less Monkey you will have in your possession
 as a result.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wait till the timer hits 24.00 remaining, and the GOAL will reach a point in
the swinging motion that is barely moving.  This is the time to go flying in
to break the tape, and go to the next Advanced Extra Floor!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Run forward immediately as the level starts, and start to shade to the right
as you approach the GOAL.  You will break the tape in under two seconds, but
this method requires some practice to master.  Anyway, onto the next
Advanced Floor!

As you can see, you have a long path to cover in 60 seconds.  To save some
time, you will hold UP before the level starts, and keep going till you hop
the gap ahead (stop holding UP, and turn right).  Now you just need to make
your way through the long paths until you get to the GOAL to go on to the
next Advance Extra stage!

Keep in mind that you should run fast on the straightaways, and then slow
down and take the corner at the same time to save time (that kind of rhymed
there ^_^).

This level is the logo of Amusement Vision (the programming team that works
for SEGA).  It rocks all around in the air, and it is shiny so it reflects
all light that touches it (these make it fairly hard to control yourself on
it).

Head forward upon starting, drop onto the shiny surface, head between the
"a" and the "v" cut out of the floor, and turn right when you get past the
end of the "v".  Keep turning right till you see the GOAL, and you should
head through it to head off to the final Advance Extra Floor!

Keep in mind that a slower pace will make it easier to control your Monkey
than speeding through like a maniac.

The first half of this level is the exact same as Advanced Thirty, but the
second half is pure evil (even more so than Advanced Thirty).

Start by walking forward onto the small platform in front of you, continuing
forward across the next small platform (move diagonally to do so), across
the bumper platform, across the next small platform, and then come to a stop
on the next bumper platform (face right).  Keep in mind that for the above
steps to work, you need to do it in one fluid motion.

Wait till the moving platform comes toward you with the one in the next ring
is right beside it to get onto the second one.  Now wait there for a longer
platform to come from behind you, and go onto it to get over to the large
patch of platforms moving in the opposite direction.  Turn around to go in
the same direction as those platforms, and set foot onto the platform on
your right to get to the ring beside the flipping ring.

Continue in the same direction till you arrive at the location of the axis
of the spinning ring.  Now you need to wait for the ring to flip around to
be parallel to the ring you are on, and then quickly move across (you can
cheat a little bit by starting forward as it starts to line up parallel with
the ring you are on).  Once you land on the outside ring, carefully make
your way around the ring in either direction while staying on the outside
portion of the ring (if you are too close to the inside of the ring you are
on, the swinging ring can knock you out of play).  Go through the GOAL to
finish off your Advance Extra adventures!


   You have completely finished Advanced Mode, so you must be proud of
   yourself, huh?  Well I say to you that Expert beckons with more Floors,
   harder challenges, more Warps, and even more Extra Floors for you to
   conquer!  Step into the next section to face the challenge of EXPERT!!!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------Expert------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

6) This section will cover the fifty floors of Expert, plus the ten extra
   stages for clearing the fifty floors without continuing.  I will attempt
   to map as many Floors as I can, but some are a little too complicated for
   my ASCII skills at this time.  Also keep in mind that this walkthrough
   will take you along the path to many of the Bananas, but they are
   optional collects (keep this in mind on the harder levels).

   The fastest path through Expert is as follows: 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
   12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29,

WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go around the hole in front of you (left to right), and then continue to the
back edge of the platform before turning to go through the GOAL to head off
to Floor Three!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hold UP before the level starts, and your Monkey will skip over both of the
gaps to break the tape in just over two seconds.  Off To Floor Two!

-The arrows beside the right path indicates a large slope.

Floor Two offers two gates to exit through.  The walkthrough here will be
split into the BLUE GOAL, and the RED GOAL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~BLUE GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go forward from the start, turn left, get lined up with the path, and then
go straight across to break the tape on the GOAL to get to Floor Three!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~RED GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go forward from the start, turn right, turn carefully to the left, and then
run up the slope (do NOT try to do large adjustments of your steering, or
you fall off), and grab some Bananas as you break through the tape to go off
to Floor Five!

-The second half of the level flips around and around to reveal both GOALS,
 one at a time.

Floor Three offers two gates to exit through.  The walkthrough here will be
split into the BLUE GOAL, and the GREEN GOAL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~BLUE GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go to either side of the platform, and then wait for the platform to swing
back around to the Blue GOAL side, and it will stop for a few seconds.  At
this point you should run through the GOAL to head off to Floor Four!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~GREEN GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You will need to go to one side (go right if you are going for faster time),
and you will need to go onto the spinning platform as it come around so you
can quickly go through the GOAL.  This is an extremely tough feat to pull
off, but if it works, you will go on to Floor Five!

Time Limit     : 60 seconds
Bananas        : 6
Banana Bunches : 1
Number Of Gates: 1

-Although you have 60 seconds to do this level, it is perhaps the longest
 Floor in the game.  You need to be fast in your speed, and proficient in
 your control.

Go forward from the start, turn right, turn left, turn left, and then turn
right to go over the two small kills.  When you reach the edge of this
platform, get on the moving platform, transfer to the next one, and then get
to the far platform.  Now wait for the next moving ledge, get on it, and
then get on the next platform.

Start running forward at a high speed to hop the gap, and after you hit the
hump in the road, pull back so you will not go flying off the platform.
Head up the ramp at top speed when you are positioned in the middle of it to
get a Banana Bunch (be sure to slow down after landing).  Now head forward
to come to a widening of the platform, where 5 bumpers are arranged as
follows:
              ||
          +---++---+
          |UP    UP|
          |   UP   |
          |UP    UP|
          +--+  +--+
             |  |

You will need to carefully maneuver through the bumpers, and then you have
to go along the narrow curved path till you arrive at the top of a slope.
Now make sure you are lined up straight, and then proceed to roll down the
slope, across the flat, and then up the hill to break the tape on the GOAL
to head to Floor Five!

There is no gate here, so all you need to do is collect the 50 Bananas on
this Floor before time expires.  Anyway, go up the outside row on the right
(in this diagram), turn left to get the next outside row, down the next
outside row, and then turn right to finish the outside row.  Now you need to
repeat the same process for the inside row, collect the solo Banana in the
middle of the square, and then head up the off-shoot section of the Floor to
get the last Banana (be sure to have enough speed to get up the mini-hill to
the Banana).  Now you are off to Floor Six!

-There are eight large platforms there, and they will move relatively close
 to the four corner platforms.

-Those eight platforms will then split into eight individual platforms
(indicated on the diagram), and they will go connect to other platforms
(including some to the corner platforms).

Start the level off by going to the right, to the very end of the platform.
Wait for the two small square platforms to come towards your position, and
then get on the one on the right.  Ride it carefully back to the rejoining
with the other 7 small squares that make up that platform.  Get to the top
right corner of it (the one closest to the GOAL), and ride it  till it gets
back with the other 7 platforms.  Then you need to go to the one platform
that is to the up-right of yours (the one that is located where EAST is on a
compass when compared to my diagram), and get on the top right square of it
(again, this is the one closest to the GOAL).  Now ride that platform till
it breaks apart with your Monkey Ball riding the small square to the corner
platform where the GOAL awaits your arrival.  Now go on through to head off
to Floor Seven!

-This level is perhaps the most evil one to ever exist.  Many people despise
 this level, and with good reason due to every section having a legitimate
 danger in ever section.  HERE WE GO!

Immediately hold UP before the round starts so your Monkey will sprint
straight up the first incline with no difficulty.  Once on the top platform,
go to the left edge as you come up, turn around, and run over the nasty
slope bridge thrown at you to come down on the far side.

Now you should turn right to line yourself up for the stairs, and then head
down the narrow path, remembering to keep your speed at a moderate level, or
face flying off the end of the lower platform.  Next you will have to
maneuver across the diagonally lined up blocks here (just carefully go from
block to block), or you can use speed to hop across (harder to stop before
the cliff though).

Now you have to climb a subtle slope of the long, narrow, winding pathway.
Once you get through that little piece of fun, you will be able to break the
tape on the GOAL to head off to Floor Eight!

-This level is an extremely hard version of Beginner Six.  The paths are
 much more narrow, the time is cut in half, and the platforms all have holes
 in them.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go down each narrow hill while slowing down near the end so you can make the
turn to get to the next slope quickly.  This method will leave you with
little time to error, so do your best to be fast and efficient in your
movements.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

GO down the first slope, slowing down so you do not fly off the platform.  Go
to the outside edge you look at as you come down the slope, turn right, and
then hop down to the next platform below you.  From there, I suggest you
finish the level off normally, although it is possible to leap down to the
GOAL area for a real fast finish (not recommended due to extreme difficulty
in doing so).

-There are a mind boggling 205 Bananas in this level, but of course there is
 no way for you to collect them all (unless your name is packattack or
 something!).

-Since you have to choose between five different wires for your path to the
 GOAL, I will list the stats of each wire, and you can decide for yourself
 on which route to take.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~0.5 WIRE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

-0 Bananas, 0 Banana Bunches.
-Longest wire, but also the widest wire.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~0.4 WIRE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

-5 Bananas, 0 Banana Bunches.
-Slightly shorter wire, but slightly smaller wire.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~0.3 WIRE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

-0 Bananas, 3 Banana Bunches.
-The wire really starts to get small when you get this low, but it is the
 third shortest path.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~0.2 WIRE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

-0 Bananas, 7 Banana Bunches.
-This wire is very small, and it allows for VERY little error, but it also
 has little distance to cover.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~0.1 WIRE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

-8 Bananas, 9 Banana Bunches.
-The smallest wire possible, but it is easily the shortest wire as well.

Be sure to get the Banana by the GOAL regardless of which wire you take, and
then head off to Floor Ten!

This level has no gate for you to go through, you just need to collect as
many Bananas as you can before time expires.  Anyway, on this level you need
to contend with the rippling floor as the middle kicks wave after wave at
you.  Go around the outside ring of Bananas in a steady speed (this will get
the first 30 Bananas), and then you will need to fight more severe wave
levels as you move to the inside ring (you are closer to the centre of the
wave producer).  You will need to be dead on in your Banana collecting here
or else you will not get all 50 Bananas.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Start off by going down the hill at the speed that your monkey will gather
with no pushing of the Analog Stick, and go through the first four sets of
bumpers at this speed.  Then you should pull back to slow your Monkey Ball
down to a decent speed, and maneuver your way through the small holes
presented to you for the next seven sets, and you should arrive at the GOAL
with less than ten seconds remaining on the timer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

This method requires a kamikaze pilot's courage as you will need to bowl
forward at a high speed while making the turns between the bumper sets to
get by the upcoming set.  Slowing down a bit to get across the path is
advisable, but generally you are trying to go high speed down this.  Much
more dangerous than the other method, but you will score a  whole lot higher
for the level!

-Try a combo of the two strategies to get the perfect run for your style.

Start the level off by going to the left against the spin of the gear.  Get
the Banana Bunch, cross to the next gear to go against it's regular spin
direction for another Banana Bunch, and when you cross to the next gear,
switch up your fight against the gear to go with them by going on the right
side of the gear.  Now get onto the fourth gear, get to the other side of
it, and then get onto the swinging double arrow platform.  Stay on the end
you got on at, and just let it swing around to meet the GOAL, where you can
then blast off into the sky to Floor Thirteen!

Start off by going on a diagonal to the left on the second diagonal from the
left at top speed until you hit the cliff, which will bounce you over the
hole (at which point you need to pull back on your Analog Stick to stay out
of the hole ahead).  From there, you should run forward, but angle slightly
to the left as you go to hit the next cliff to bounce yourself over the hole
there.

Now you need to follow the left edge around the hole in the middle until you
see a ramp on your left leading down to a flat platform (take that part of
the ramp).  Run across your narrow path to get up the next hill (careful of
not over shooting the platform), and then take the outside path at a good
speed so when the hole in the track comes up, you will hop it (again being
careful not to over shoot the far platform.  Now follow the right turns till
you reach the narrow bridge that has a diagonal path change for you to deal
with, and then go break the tape on the GOAL (or go around for the Banana
Bunch first) to jet off to Floor Fourteen!

-Note that the arrows here indicate the movement of the bumpers on the
floor.

Start off by going between the first three bumpers, stop on the bridge,
wait for an opening in the two bumpers (usually after one moves just past
you), and get to the next bridge.  Wait till the top bumper starts left, and
you should quickly move up behind it before getting onto the small bridge,
where you will go across between the moving bumpers on either side of you.
Now you have to make your Monkey ball hang partially off the platform as you
maneuver past the three bumpers here that take up most of the platform
before you arrive at the small path to the GOAL, which will take your Monkey
up to Floor Fifteen!

-This level has a wall of bumpers, a moving GOAL, and then another bumper
 wall behind it before it opens up to 24 Bananas behind it on a narrow
 platform with a wall of bumpers behind it.

To beat this, you simply have to time your run into the GOAL when it is
sliding to the  middle section of it's patrol (this lines up with the narrow
path).  Hold Up off the start for about half a second, let go, and then
after a second, hold UP once more to go bust through the tape of the GOAL to
head off to Floor Sixteen!

-You may need to alter your timing slightly, but this method works for me
nine times out of ten.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Start off by going down the thin downhill path (collecting four Bananas as
you go), and when you reach the end, you will need to drop down on to the
hole-riddled platform with the sever slope.  Hold your Analog Stick so it
will slow your descent down the hill (hold LEFT for sure), and you need to
maneuver yourself diagonally across the two squares until you are above the
GOAL.  Then you should slow yourself down to as slow as possible, and then
wrap around into the GOAL as you approach it to head off to Floor Seventeen!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Launch yourself off the ledge ahead of you when you start, but you need to
angle left slightly.  When you hit the platform below, you need to alter
your trajectory as needed to go through the GOAL to get up to Floor
Seventeen!

-Although this level looks enormous, it is actually quite small for where
you have to get to.

Start off by going out on the conveyor belt as the bumper set passes you.
Duck into the next walkway, grab the Banana, and then go back out on the
conveyor belt to make the next section.  Keep this pattern going until you
reach the one where you need to reach the GOAL.  Make sure to take more of a
run at the lip there, or else the upcoming bumper set will get you!  Onto
Floor Eighteen with you!

-The middle platform here tilts back and forth here.  It has such a severe
 tilt that it can dump your Monkey Ball.

To beat this level, start off by running onto the right side of the platform
to go until it starts to get steep.  This point is when you need to slow
down your speed, and to hold RIGHT to fight the gravity.  You will drift
across the platform during it's trip down and back up, and if you stay on
it, start running up the left side, and repeat the procedures to protect
yourself from the gravity (just change the lefts and rights around).
Following that, you should be able to get to the GOAL, and on to Floor
Nineteen with you!

-The arrows here indicate the slope of the pathways.

Go down the hill carefully, making sure to get down off the slope before you
turn.  Once you get down to the centre section, you can go for some Bananas
if you wish, but you are advised to head directly for the GOAL.  As you draw
closer to the top of any path higher up the slopes, you will need to put
more power into your attempt to climb the slopes (be sure to stop going
forward when you get up to the next level).  Also be sure to not turn when
still on a slope, or you will pay for it with a Monkey.  Once you reach the
GOAL, you are off to Floor Twenty!

There is no gate here, so all you need to do is collect the 40 Bananas on
this Floor before time expires.  Anyway, go left to get the left most Banana
by going diagonally through the bumpers (2 Bananas).  Go up to the next
diagonal row of Bananas to go down it, and then just follow this pattern to
efficiently get all 40 Bananas before time expires.  Head off to Floor
Twenty-One!

-This level is a huge pain in the ass, and it is one that will cause a lot
 of frustration to rookie players.

This level has the narrow path lined up right towards the GOAL, so it sounds
easy, but you have to avoid the walls crashing in from both sides of the
path.  You will need to go down the path, and when a wall approaches from
the left, you will need to have your Monkey Ball hanging half off the path
to the right.  The same goes with the wall approaching from the right, you
will need to have your Monkey Ball hanging half off the path on the left.
Just work your way forward at a speed you are comfortable with (it will need
to be decently fast for the slope on the last third of the path), and when
you clear the crashing walls, get the Banana Bunches behind the GOAL before
heading off to Floor Twenty-Two!

-This is the "SEGA" level.  The level is an exact replica of the SEGA logo,
 and you will need to be right on to make your way across the bars that make
 the name up.

Start by heading for the ramp, take it a moderate speed (angle to the right
when you launch off of it), and then run full speed at the "E", making sure
that while on the "S" you angle left to get to the spot where they are
closer together.

Now you should go along the outside of the "E" (either direction) to hit the
"G" (again angling inward on the "G" to cross less hole).

Once you arrive on the "G", make your way to the bottom of it to jump the
small gap to the inside portion of the "A" (making sure not to fall down any
hole around the "A").

Once there, go bust the GOAL open to go off to Floor Twenty-Three!

-The arrows here indicate that the individual blocks move back and forth.
 They go from one side to the other, and then repeat.

-There are 10 Bananas located in this level.  They float in the same
 location, and they are on a straight line between the GOAL and your
 starting position.

To beat this level, simply make your way across the platforms as they move
back and forth.  You can opt to wait till it lines up with the Bananas to
collect them, or you can run a diagonal pattern to get to the GOAL quicker.
Either way, you are off to Floor Twenty-Four for the next challenge!

This level is as straightforward as they come.  All you have to do is be
fast on the straight parts, and slow down for the corners.  No other advice
is needed for you to go on to Floor Twenty-Five!

Another relatively easy level for you (are you complaining though?).  The
trick is when you go over a half pipe wall, you need to pull back so you will
roll down the side of the next one.  Why do you have to do this you ask?
Well, this will help you to have enough momentum to clear the next wall of
the half pipe.  Just follow this method, and you make it to the GOAL easily
so you can advance to Floor Twenty-Six!

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Follow the arrows as you fall down from block to block (use the Bananas as
you fall for a reference to your position over the platforms).  After making
your way down onto your fifth platform of falling fun, a bridge will connect
to the platform where the GOAL awaits to send you off to Floor Twenty-Seven!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go forward from the start to the next block, and then walk off the side of
it slowly while pulling back.  You should fall down until you hit a block,
at which point, you should reverse the direction you are pressing on the
Analog Stick to steady your Monkey.  You will realize that you are at the
GOAL, so head through to launch yourself u to Floor Twenty-Seven!

-You need to use your diagonal platform moves here, so try your best to
 master it before you get here.

-The starting platform is elevated, so once you pick a side, you are stuck.

-The GOAL platform is lowered, so once you get on it, you are stuck (like
 you want to leave!).

-The left path is easier, but the right side offers FIVE Banana bunches for
 you to collect if you are good enough.

After going through the GOAL, regardless of your chosen path, you will head
 off to Floor Twenty-Eight!

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go straight through the six Bananas, turn right, and then ride the coil all
the way to the bottom where you have to go through the tape of the GOAL on
the fly.  When you do it, off to Floor Twenty-Nine for you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go forward at full speed, and when the timer hits 56.XX, fly off the left
side of the platform.  As you fall, adjust your flight position accordingly
with the GOAL, and you will be off to Floor Twenty-Nine!

-The arrows on the conveyor belts indicate the direction that they turn.

-The arrows beside the conveyor belts indicate the movement of the conveyor
 belts location.

At the start you should head up to the end of the starting platform, and
wait for the conveyor belt to come along side your platform (then you board
it).  Now you will need to fight the conveyor belt pull while watching the
location of the next conveyor belt before moving to it (you only have a
second to switch over).  Just repeat these steps two more times to arrive on
the GOAL platform, where you can get through the GOAL to head off to Floor
Thirty!

There is no gate here, so all you need to do is collect the 40 Bananas on
this Floor before time expires.  Anyway, as soon as you start, drop back to
the wall behind you, and head down the wall to a corner.  Now you just need to
go down the row in front of you over the bumps at a moderate speed, and when
you near the end of your row, slow down.  Then you just keep moving down the
rows in this pattern, and you should get all 40 Bananas before the 60 seconds
expire (if you do not, it will not cost you a Monkey).  Off to Floor
Thirty-One with you!

From the start, turn around to go back to the wall, and then charge at full
speed to launch off your platform to hit the lip of the other one, which
will pop you up high enough to get onto the platform.  Now you need to get
beside the far wall from the GOAL on your platform, and repeat the same
"jumping" procedure to reach the GOAL platform.  Then you have to go through
the GOAL to get on your way to Floor Thirty-Two!

Start by running a fast pace along the path, making sure to slow down for
the corners when they become too difficult to handle.  As the path narrows,
slow your speed down so you will be under control.  When you reach the path
that is not as wide as your Monkey Ball, it is time to start crawling along,
and then when you hit the super narrow path, crawl along at a few miles per
hour maximum.  Once you make the curve on the slender path, go forward at
full speed to go through the GOAL, to get the Banana Bunch before you go off
to Floor Thirty-Three!

This is the funnel-like level you have seen before, but this time there are
posts to knock you down into the hole below.  Before you head off into the
funnel, pick the path you want to take, and then stick to using that one.
With the posts being such a threat, it is not a good idea to go into this
level with a blind eye to your path.  Once you get through the posts, go
through the GOAL to earn your way to Floor Thirty-Four!

On this level you have three cylinders that roll back and forth across the
path to the GOAL.  Three Banana Bunches float off to your right for you to
collect (if you want to).  Anyway, get onto the cylinder in front of you
(you need to go to the right a bit), and then the three cylinders will line
up so you should run forward along the "top" of the cylinders to make it to
the GOAL platform.  You can try for the Banana Bunches if you wish, but you
will need to not go past them at all, or else gravity will suck you down
into the abyss below.  Once you beat it, you are off to Floor Thirty-Five!

Here you will face a twisted path (a rectangular prism that has been
twisted).  Get onto the platform, and slowly make your progress forward as
you try to stay centred on the platform.  If you go too far forward, you
will be unable to stop your forward momentum.  If you stay too far back, you
will then roll backwards.  Once you attain your balance enough to get to the
GOAL, you will go off to Floor Thirty-Six!

-This level is just like Advanced Twenty-One, but the speed of the bumpers
 movements are twice as fast here.

-The arrows here indicate the motion of the bumpers direction.  The first
 rectangle has ten bumpers that patrol clockwise.  The second rectangle has
 ten bumpers that patrol counter-clockwise.  The shared side of each
 rectangle has the combined bumper total to worry about, so the space gets
 less between bumpers.

Go forward to grab the Banana Bunch, go left, turn right, and then walk up
the narrow path at about the same pace as the bumpers.  When you near the
turn to the right, you will have to follow your bumper closely on the turn
(the other set of bumpers will come in behind you), or you can let one

bumper from the other set go in, and then you MUST make the turn (the next
bumper in your set is coming fast!).  After carefully walking between the
two rather close bumpers, turn left to follow your bumper till you reach the
turn where you go left, and then go right to the GOAL to head off to Floor
Thirty-Seven!

-The seven platforms here will move down for a bit, and then they will
 rapidly launch upwards, which will send your Monkey Ball flying into the
 air if you are on one.

To beat this level, start off by holding UP before the level starts so you
can get launched into the air by the first upward motion the platforms make.
Once you land on the second platform of the three in the diagonal line
between the starting position and the GOAL, stop your Monkey Ball, and get
yourself to walk slowly towards the GOAL.  Once the platforms launch you
again, try to land on the platform that is nearest the GOAL, and then on the
next upward platform motion, get yourself onto the GOAL platform to head off
to Floor Thirty-Eight!

-The top four platforms shift together to form a path, and then separate to
 how they look above.  This repeats on this level.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Get onto the first platform, fight the motions of it, and then get to the
second platform when the platforms reconnect.  Fight the motions of the
moving platform, get onto the third platform when connected, and then fight
the motions of the platform, and then get onto the fourth platform where you
will have to be careful not to fall off as you are wrapping around the posts
on the GOAL to go off to Floor Thirty-Nine!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

From the start, hold UP to get a boost, cut right on platform one, and get
onto platform two.  Wait till the platforms are nearly reconnected, and then
sprint to the fourth platform where the GOAL awaits.  Break the tape, and
head off to Floor Thirty-Nine!

-The curved platforms here move back and forth.  They go to the left, to the
 right. to the left, to the right, and so on.

Pick one side of the level that you will feel sticking to.  Then your job is
to run out onto the first platform as it moves to your chosen side, fight
gravity as you move towards the edge of the platform, and then go onto the
second platform as soon as you possibly can to fight gravity and get near
the edge of the platform.  Now do the same deal with the third platform, and
when you land on the fourth platform, just run across to get to the GOAL
platform where you can collect the Banana at the back before playing in the
confetti of the Party Ball.  Then you are to head off to Floor Forty!

-This is the only Bonus Floor to actually have a gate for you to go through
 before time expires.

You will start on top of a large ramp where you should g forward down the
ramp to get some Bananas as you go down, and pull back a bit if you get
ahead of the moving pack of Bananas.  When you near the end of the ramp,
push UP to get a good launch off the ramp so you will stay near the Bananas,
and then swerve through the group to get as many as you can.  Once the
Bananas get near the end of the runway, they will take off into the air, and
you should then break the tape on the GOAL to head off to Floor Forty-One!

-This Floor is very similar to Advance Twelve, but this time the bottom of
 the bowl has a big hole in it.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

The much safer way of doing things, launch your Monkey off the right side of
the starting platform to get him/her riding along the wall of the bowl (as
high as you can manage), and be sure to get the Bananas as you go around to
reach the GOAL to head off to Floor Forty-Two!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Although it is extremely hard to do so, you can launch your Monkey off the
left side of the starting position platform to go through the tape of the
GOAL on a bounce.  It requires some serious guts to do so because missing
this jump will usually result in the loss of a Monkey.  Anyway, if you do it
this way, you will be off to Floor Forty-Two!

-Yet more diagonal platform walking for you to enjoy.

-A wild level with lots of GOALs and Bananas for you to consider.

Floor Forty-Two offers three gates to exit through.  The walkthrough here
will be split into the BLUE GOAL, GREEN GOAL, and the RED GOAL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~BLUE GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Head left on the diagonal until you run out of squares to use, and then
weave a right,, left, right pattern to reach the tape to head off to Floor
Forty-Three!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~GREEN GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go on the right diagonal to you run out of squares, go left diagonal for two
squares, and then go right diagonal for two squares.  Then you turn right 90
degrees, go right diagonal two squares, and then go left diagonal four
squares.  Now you just need to use a weave of left, right, left, and right
to go through the tape to warp off to Floor Forty-Four!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~RED GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go on the right diagonal to you run out of squares, go left diagonal for two
squares, and then go right diagonal for two squares.  Then you turn right 90
degrees, go right diagonal two squares, and then go left diagonal two
squares.  Now you should turn 90 degrees left, go left diagonal three
squares, and then go right diagonal two squares.  Next you will go left
diagonal four squares, turn 90 degrees left, and then go left diagonal four
squares.  The next step is to go left diagonal two squares, and then through
the GOAL to warp off to Floor Forty-Five!

-Swinging Platforms Number One has two Bananas on it (one on each platform).
 It swings in a clockwise manner when looking at it from the starting
 position.

-Swinging Platforms Number Two has two Bananas on it (one on each platform).
 It swings clockwise so the bottom ledge becomes the top ledge, stops, and
 then reverses so the top ledge becomes the bottom ledge.  this means it
 moves counter-clockwise, stops, and then counter-clockwise before starting
 up again.

Run down the diagonal path here, turn left, and get onto a swinging platform

to ride it to the next platform across the way from where you got on the
swinging platform.  Now you need to get on a swinging platform here, and
when it is coming to the pinnacle of it's swing, you need to roll off to
land on the platform below.  Once you land on it, stay put till it brings
you up to the next platform, and then go through the GOAL to earn your
flight to Floor Forty-Four!

-This level has a narrow path that is relatively flat on top of a connected
 set of cylinders.  The path is highlighted by being a different colour than
 the cylinder is, so try and stay to the green and lighter blue sections to
 remain impervious to the effects of the rounded cylinder.  Although you can
 set your Monkey Ball on the cylinder sections of the level, you risk having
 the slope and gravity drag you down into the long fall below you.

Head straight from the starting position, turn left, and then run the curve
on top of the cylinder path at a moderate speed.  Turn right on the next
cylinder, go straight, and then turn left onto the curved cylinder to run
the curved path on top at a moderate speed.  Once you reach the end of the
curved path, turn right to run down the straightaway through the GOAL, and
on to Floor Forty-Five!

-The two thin ledges here turn around 360 degrees in a continual motion.
 Your Monkey Ball can walk along on them until the two platforms you are
 using both get to near vertical, at which point your Monkey will fall
 through.

Wait till about 26.XX second remaining on the clock before running across
the first set of spinning platforms.  Next you should wait as close to the
first set of spinning platforms as possible until you see the clock hits
20.99, which means charge onto the spinning platforms in front of you.  When
you get across to the far platform, go through the GOAL to reach Floor
Forty-Six.  If you are having troubles getting across the second set of
spinning platforms, aim to the left or right a bit when you enter them (this
will often retain a higher speed for a longer period of time).

Floor Forty-Six offers two gates to exit through.  The walkthrough here
will be split into the BLUE GOAL, and the GREEN GOAL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~BLUE GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go right from the start, enter the first sloped bowl on the left side, and
then jump the wall to the second bowl as you head down it's right side.  Hop
the wall to the third bowl so you are going down the left side of it, and be
sure to jump out early to land on the flat platform with the Blue GOAL,
where you will exit to Floor Forty-Seven!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~GREEN GOAL~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go right from the start, enter the first sloped bowl on the left side, and
then jump the wall to the second bowl as you head down it's right side.  Hop
the wall to the third bowl so you are going down the left side of it, and
then jump the wall to the fourth bowl.  As soon as you land in this bowl,
you will need to cut low right by the hole to build some speed before you
try and launch up to the HUGE platform where the GOAL awaits to warp your
Monkey Ball off to Floor Forty-Eight!

-Each segmented part elevates slightly from the one you are on.

This level looks simple and easy, but it is... well... ok, it is
unbelievably easy for this stage of the game.  To beat it, you just need to
hold UP before the level starts, and then you need to just adjust your line
as each bump can send you slightly off course.  Using this method, you will
fly to the GOAL in no time flat, which gets you a one-way ticket to Floor
Forty-Nine!

-This level has a simplistic design, but it does have a deceptive nature to
 it.

Start off by going left onto the twisty path, and then you need to fight
against the slopes of the turns.  However, keep in mind that you will need
to slow down your pressure on the Analog Stick as you clear each slope on
the corners, or else you may tumble into the great wide open below!  Once
you reach the GOAL, break through the tape to head off to Floor Forty-Nine!

-This levels has six sets of bumpers (six per set) that rotate around in a
 counter-clockwise manner while protecting a single Banana (three of them),
 Banana Bunch (two of them), and a GOAL (one of them).

Start off by letting the bumper sets go by you with their treasure inside
(unless you are REALLY CLOSE to a 1-Up), and also let the GOAL set of
bumpers pass by as well.  Now you should chase the GOAL set, and time your
entry with the swinging of the GOAL to reveal a path right to the tape.
Once you do it, you are off to the final Floor of Expert, Floor Fifty!

-This level is wholly contained within the cube that appears before you.  Be
 sure to watch it unfold to learn how it will unfold for you on your run for
the GOAL!

-It unfolds in the following order: forward, right, forward, right, and
 forward to make the GOAL reachable.  It will then fold up in reverse order.

When you begin, go onto the open platform in front of you as it becomes
level to you, and head to the top right corner of it.  Now you should slow
down, and then speed up again on a right diagonal so you cut across the
minimal amount of ground possible, and thusly allow yourself a better chance
of reaching the GOAL to finish Expert Mode!


BUT WAIT!!!  If you did it without dying, you will get the honour of going
on to try the ten Expert Extra Stages!  The following stages in the Extra
stages of Expert were written by Christian Wall (christian_x_@hotmail.com):
Expert Extra Two, Expert Extra Four, Expert Extra Five, Expert Extra Six,
Expert Extra Seven, Expert Extra Nine, and Expert Extra Ten.  Expert Extra

This level has moving platforms that change their shape.  Here are the forms
they can take.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~POSITION ONE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 +----+------+
 |    |      |
 |    |      |
 |    |      |
 |    |      |

~~POSITION THREE~~

 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 |      |    |
 +------+----+

The platforms start in POSITION ONE, go to POSITION TWO, and then to
POSITION THREE.  They will then go back to TWO, then ONE, then TWO, then
THREE, and so on.  This is because the platforms slide back and forth in a
staggered manner, and when they hit the wall, the larger section of the
platform goes underneath the smaller piece.  Once the platforms starts
moving again, it comes out the back due to momentum.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Get onto the platform as it comes near your platform, and start to pick your
way across the platforms carefully.  Remember to get on the solid platform
pieces when you reach the wall, and then continue onwards.  You will reach
the far platform and bust the tape of the GOAL to go on to the next Floor!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

This method requires you to run across the platforms on a diagonal to the
last moving platform, where you wait for it to reach the far ledge.  Go onto
that platform to the GOAL to reach the next Floor!

I think it's better to learn this floor's pattern and then finish it. But
here's my strategy.  My directions have the foundation in that "north" is
the direction of the goal and "south" is the direction of the start. Go
north immediately, wait, go north-west and north, wait, go north-east and
north, wait, go north-west and north, wait, go directly for the goal. In
short words: between the drops of platforms you shall always switch between
moving north-west - north and north-east-north until you reach the goal or a
clear sight to the goal.  Off to the next Expert Extra Floor!

-The GOAL swings around in this level, so you will need to take that into
 account when trying to reach the GOAL.

-The GOAL has an extended wall, but turns at the same speed.  This means that
 if you make any connection with the outer parts of the wall, you will be
 batted off into space, and one less Monkey you will have in your possession
 as a result.

There are two ways to go about beating this level: the FAST WAY and the SLOW
WAY.  The FAST WAY is more dangerous, but you will score higher.  THE SLOW
WAY is safer, but your score will be lower.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wait till the timer hits 24.00 remaining, and the GOAL will reach a point in
the swinging motion that is barely moving.  This is the time to go flying in
to break the tape, and go to the next Expert Extra Floor!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Run forward immediately as the level starts, and start to shade to the right
as you approach the GOAL.  You will break the tape in under two seconds, but
this method requires some practice to master.  Anyway, onto the next
Expert Extra Floor!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~SLOW WAY~~

Board a platform and then wait on it until the timer has counted down to
around 17-16 secs left.  Then make ready to board the goal platform which
comes from below some secs after this. It comes from the opposite side of
which you bored the platform you're on right now. Get on the goal platform
when it's slightly below yours. The timer stats goes if you got on any of
the first platforms.  Off to the next Expert Extra Floor!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~FAST WAY~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Immediately take action. Board the oncoming platform with a banana and fall
directly off it to the left or more like the north-west corner of it and aim
for the goal platform below.  This is risky but the other way is so boring
and the camera is really messy.  Off to the next Expert Extra Floor!

Easy, but not if you want the bunch on the tip of ramp below.  Well, the
ways way then.  Go left, then up and then roll on the nasty angled catwalk
with bananas, to the next catwalk.  Go to the far end of this catwalk and
line up to the upcoming goals. You don't even have to time well.  Just roll
off the ramp and you'll break a finish line. They come from the right all
the time so it's nearly never empty there.  But remember to go all the way
down the catwalk so you'll get proper speed.  Off to the next Expert Extra
Floor!

This is a little scary, because you don't really see what happens.  Go down
the big pipe during high speed and boost all the way through it.  Try to
follow the corners with the control stick, but sometimes it works by just
holding up.  And when you see the goal, when you come out of the pipe,
brake, not before, not after.  Because then you'll either boost off the
platform or fall before it.  Then simply go into the goal.  Off to the next
Expert Extra Floor!

I believe this is the safest method.  Board the moving platform with
squares, then roll at a high speed past three bananas and be sure to board
the fourth yellow dot.  Keep your balance there until you see another
platform with squares coming towards you. Board it and it will take you to
the goal just in time.  Off to the next Expert Extra Floor!

This level is the logo of Amusement Vision (the programming team that works
for SEGA).  It rocks all around in the air, and it is shiny so it reflects
all light that touches it (these make it fairly hard to control yourself on
it).

Head forward upon starting, drop onto the shiny surface, head between the
"a" and the "v" cut out of the floor, and turn right when you get past the
end of the "v".  Keep turning right till you see the GOAL, and you should
head through it to fly up to the next Expert Extra Floor!

Keep in mind that a slower pace will make it easier to control your Monkey
than speeding through like a maniac.

Woohooo! That's what my stomach said when I first played this floor.  This is
really easy if you follow my direction exactly. This is how to do it.  Go
along the platform to the point where the stairs begin.  Place your monkey on
the pair of squares in the middle, behind the row that's nearest the edge.

Be sure that the monkey doesn't move, then boost, press up all the time and
maybe aim a little towards the goal.  You should go right into the goal.  It
works for me around 9/10 of the times.  Off to the final Expert Extra Floor!

This is one funny floor. A big hammer spins around and it hits away block
after block and when the TIME BONUS limit has passed it will hit away the
whole floor.  This is how you should do it. Stay put until you here two
"klonks".  It's a rather long pause between them.  Then quickly go to the
left of the pillar, pretty close to it actually.  When you've heard one more
"klonk" go back to the start point and await two more "klonks".  After
those, go to the other position, to the left and await the last "klonk".
Then break that last little finish line.  Let's conclude this. 2 "klonks",
move left, 1 "klonk", move back, 2 "klonks", move left, 1 "klonk" and GOAL!


   You have completely finished Expert Mode, so you must be proud of

7) This section will look at the reward for the most extreme players of
   Super Monkey Ball; Master Mode.  These are ten floors designed as a treat
   only for the most hardcore of gamers to unlock.  The following is the
   work of Matthew England (wowbaggers@aol.com), and is in no way the work
   of Brian P. Sulpher.

First of all, don't move from your landing spot.  You will need to wait for
the first platform to leave, and arrive again.  When it looks like it's just
about to connect again, floor it.  While you're running, look at the cracks.
If they're getting further and further apart and are moving away from you,
you need to go a lot faster, or you're a goner.  But if the ledges are moving
further apart but are still moving towards you, just let up on the gas and
let yourself roll until the gap is almost closed again.  Then accelerate
again, and you will most likely make it to the goal without making any more
adjustments.

You will notice a gate running the length of the top circular platform, and
there is a gap immediately to the left of you.  Hold forward somewhat gently
until it comes around and you go through.  Once you get to the first
wedge-shaped platform, wait there until the rainbow staircase starts to
unfold.  Watch the map to be sure when this happens, then walk down it until
you reach the next wedge.  Don't go too fast or you will bounce out of
control.  Go too slow and you won't make it in time.  When the staircases
retract, your wedge will move forward.  Stay near the upper part (the
direction where the staircase was) of it to avoid falling off.  Continue on
to another two wedges, until you reach the goal.

When you first land, you will see a triangular ramp leading to an L-shaped
platform.  This triangle should look familiar, it's similar to the second
ramp from level 7.  This one however, is higher, longer, and thinner, making
it about 5 times harder.  Slowly move behind you until you are on the edge of
your starting platform, and line yourself up the best you can with the ramp.
You have plenty of time, don't go for it until you're ready.  Keeping
straight, jam forwards and make tiny little adjustments to the left or right
if need be until you're up and over.  Then brake on the way down to avoid
hitting the post in front of you.  Continue on this platform until your feet
reach the very bottom of the uppermost-right hand square.  Your feet must be
aligned with the center of the square.  It needs to look like the bottom of
your ball is balancing on a ledge, if you will.  You also need to completely
stopped.  0 mph.  Also, you need to be facing in the general direction of the
temple in the background.  Don't take too much time aligning your ball,
either, or your monkey's momentum will shift the ball out of position.  When
all this is done.  Hit the gas straight off, and don't let go.  You are
aiming for the left hand side of the goal (the lower part).  If you did
everything right, you will smash right through that ribbon.  This takes
practice, but you'll get the hang of it.

Note:  You can also take the path of the moving platforms and corkscrew,
       but I don't recommend it unless you like to test your luck.  ;)


                             o-------------o
                             | Master Four |
                             o-------------o

Roll down that first ramp, and stay far to the left.  When you see the carpet
finish rolling towards you, begin slowly moving forward and floor it when it
begins to unroll again.  When you come to the first platform, hop on and stay
far to the left.  (Otherwise the carpet's attached bar will send you sailing
into oblivion).  Wait until you see red on the screen, and floor it again
towards the next platform.  This time stay far to the right.  Repeat this
until there are no platforms left, and then run onto the carpet and through
the goal.


                             o-------------o
                             | Master Five |
                             o-------------o

Slowly start walking to the corner in front of you, and the second the Dole
square to your left begins to move, you break a hard left and start running
towards the edge (the one that was to your left when you began).  If you did
this right, you will run in between the blocks and when the square re-forms
it will narrowly miss you.  Next, position yourself so you are facing the
corner of the inside square hole. Run towards it until you are 3 diagonal
squares away from the corner.  The next dole block should form around you.
Run towards the goal.  You will probably need to break for a split second to
avoid touching the block in front of you before it re-forms.


                              o------------o
                              | Master Six |
                              o------------o

Whenever the figure begins to rotate, make sure that you are on top of the
red slab, and pressed up against its connecting wall.  When it rotates, you
should seamlessly transfer from the red slap to the new floor.  Repeat this
eleven times, then slam through that goal.  It's best to go slow on this
level to avoid falling through the gaps.  Don't go too slow though or you
might not make it to the red boxes in time, causing you to bounce out of
control.


                             o--------------o
                             | Master Seven |
                             o--------------o

Don't move from your landing spot, until the button in front of you is
completely depressed.  You must move the instant it's pushed down.  Now move
to the right corner of the square, gently hoist yourself on top of the blue
face, and make a hard left (and slightly forward) and brake.  Next, wait in
the center of the first full square from the front of the green face.  Wait
for just a moment while it rotates, then ever so slowly hold forwards, and
brake the second you are on top of the face.  Next, go to the inside corner
of the L, slightly on the right hand side of it.  When the figure rotates,
you can go up and then jam to the left.  A blue wall protects you from
falling off.  Go through the goal.  You will need to practice to get a feel
for the right speed.


                             o--------------o
                             | Master Eight |
                             o--------------o

Hold forwards even before you land, and jump off the right edge of the
starting platform and head straight for the right-hand edge of the floor
without stopping.  A set of green and red pegs will come from the left,
interlock to your right, and leave again.  You must stay far enough left to
avoid the interlocking action.  However, going too far to the left spells
catastrophe.  You're goal is to end up 3 or 4 squares from the edge, so you
will have to start braking just after the edge of the last red circle.  It's
important that you go right a little bit once you get there too, or else a
purple peg will knock you off.  Now without changing position, face towards
the goal which is to your left.  Okay, you see those blue and green pegs
occasionally interlocking to your left?  Well, when they line up perfectly,
that's your chance to head straight for the goal.  Don't slow down and don't
stray too far left or that's the end of you.  This level requires practice in
order to get a feel how to get the above-mentioned pathway down pat.


                             o-------------o
                             | Master Nine |
                             o-------------o

Go reasonably fast for the first 11 platforms, turning/braking at those
brownish squares at the end.  For the rest of the level, watch your monkey's
feet.  Try to make them stay in the center as best you can.  Slow down as you
near each corner, completely stopping when you get there.  It's also best to
turn towards the next platform, in case you still have some momentum.  On the
last one, just make sure you're on at least a little bit, and run onto the
goal platform.  Careful not to fall off.  This floor involves more luck than
any of the others, but it still doesn't hurt to practice often.


                              o------------o
                              | Master Ten |
                              o------------o

Wait until the goal swings most of the way left, and then jump onto Aiai's
leg.  Keep on running until you get to the pink of his face.  Wait in between
his eyes until the goal starts to slow down.  Then, run into the goal.  It is
a good idea to edge a bit to the left or right too, depending on where the
goal is heading.


   Thanks again to Matthew England for the walkthrough on these ten Floors,
   and I hope you guys appreciate his sage advice on these tough floors!
   Congratulations on beating the toughest challenge in a video game
   released to home consoles in many years!  Now take a break to regain your
   insanity you most likely lost in the path to this point!

8) This section will cover the controls for the game, Course Stats, and some
   strategies for winning a lot of the time.

                               o----------o

ANALOG Stick-> controls your monkey's direction.  Holding UP will cause a
               speed up, while DOWN will cause a slow down.

C Stick------> No apparent use.

START--------> Pauses/unpauses the game.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~Speed Star~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gives your Monkey a short speed boost to overtake/pull away from your foes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~Banana Peel~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This will fall behind your Monkey Ball once you use it.  It will cause any
Monkey to run over it to skid around for a while (it can even get you on a
later lap, so be aware of where you drop the peel!).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~Bowling Bomber~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This will send a bomb hurtling toward your opponents.  If it hits your
opposition, there will be two consequences for your opponent.  The first
consequence is that they will be thrown far into the air, and the second
consequence is that their Monkey will be having convulsions if they land on
the track (definitely not guaranteed to land on the track), meaning that
their speed and controls will be severely hampered.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~Polygon Ball~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This will hit your opponent causing them to have to contend  with a
differently shaped ball.  The Polygon Ball causes the Monkey to be slowed
down, and control will be lessened as the sharp angles of the ball.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~Ice Cube~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

This Will cause your opponents speed to be severely slowed down as well as
the ball being transformed into a frozen ice cube.  This will make the turns
less responsive as well.


                             o------------o
                             | Play Modes |
                             o------------o

One Course Race-> One to Four Players can take part in this (each will need
                  their own controllers).  After selecting their Monkeys and
                  the course to race on, the players get the option of
                  changing the settings (number of laps, computer
                  participation, handicap, and items).

Grand Prix------> This mode has the same rules and options as above, but
                  this time the game will take the players through all six
                  courses.  Through a point system, a winner will be decided
                  after the six races are completed.  The point system is as
                  follows for each individual race (meaning you can win overall
                  while never winning one single race): 1st = 10, 2nd = 7,
                  3rd = 3, 4th = 1.

Time Attack-----> This is for One Player only.  This mode involves choosing a
                  course, racing the course, and seeing if you broke the
                  fastest time recorded on it.  Each race will give you three
                  Speed Stars to use in your race against the clock, so use
                  them wisely.

-Always hit the speed boosters that are strewn on the track.  These will
 keep you ahead of the other racers, and they will also assist you in
 catching those ahead of you.

-Sometimes if a race is tight, it is best to NOT be in the lead.  The reason
 for this is that your opposition will be following you, collecting items as
 they go, and they will eventually get a weapon to out the hurt on your
 Monkey.

-Try to place your Banana Peels in locations where the opposition will
 likely travel.  This is best done in a part of the course where the path
 narrows (like near the finish line for example), or around a corner where
 they might not see it till they skid over the wall.

-When you enter the Pipe Warp Tunnel cylinder, you should slow down your
 speed upon entering, head for the speed booster, and then rip straight up
 the middle to escape.  If this fails, return to the bottom of the cylinder,
 and try to go up one side instead of straight up because the straight up
 method will fail.

9) This section will go over the controls for the game, and some strategies
   for winning a lot of the time.


                               o----------o

                               o---------o

-The Number of Players (one to four).

-Select which Monkey you would like to control.

-Set number of round victories needed to win the game (between one to five).

-Choose the order of three arena loop you will play in until the game ends.

-Set the Computer opponents to ON/OFF for the match (if there are only one
 to three Players).


                              o-----------o
                              | Power-Ups |
                              o-----------o

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~"BIG" Glove~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This item will increase the size of your glove, and this causes your
punching/hitting area to increase.  You will have an easier time hitting
opponents than before.  This goes well with the other power-ups.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~"SPINNER"~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This will allow your character to spin their glove in a circle around their
ball.  To do this, press and hold down 'A' Button to activate it.   This
item is best used in conjunction with the "BIG" Glove.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~"LONG" Arm~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is by far the best item to get.  It not only extends how far your
monkey can reach, it also gives more power behind your punches.  This item
is best used with the "BIG" Glove power-up.

-The reason that the SPINNER, and the LONG Arm do not work well together is
 simply because the SPINNER is dependent upon the glove making contact with
 the opponent.  The more LONG Arm's you have in play, the wider the radius
 of the SPINNER attack.  This means it is pretty easy for an opponent to get
 themselves inside of your radius to punch you off easily since your defense
 is down (you are wide open to attack).  It will also take longer for your
 glove to finish one full rotation around the body, leaving you even more
 open to attack.

-Please note that for each LONG Arm and BIG Glove you have collected in the
 same fight AND you have yet to fall off, the effect of each type of power-up
 will be further magnified (Glove will get increasingly larger and range of
 your punching will get increasingly longer).


                             o----------------o
                             | Level Lay-Outs |
                             o----------------o

-Mid-Summer Jungle Square is a large, green square that has rails on the left
 and right sides.  It is fairly large, so knocking people off usually
 requires a few hits (unless they get sloppy and put themselves on the
 outside of it).  A fairly tame battle site to start you off with.

-Cold Ice Octagon is an icy field that has a much smaller surface area than
 the first battle arena.  There are eight walls placed in an arranged order
 that can often help you stay on the platform.  There is a platform in the
 middle as well, which prevents anyone form taking straight charges at an
 opponent.  This field is ice cold, but it ups the heat of battle with the
 smaller surface, making it much more intense than the previous course.

-High Flying UFO Circle level is the smallest of the three, and it has no
 walls to protect your monkey from a long fall.  This is an extremely intense
 battle site, and should be of extreme high scoring races.  This  battle site
 is popular just because of the easiness of knocking someone off.


                             o---------------o
                             | Scoring Rules |
                             o---------------o

-Knocking a monkey off the platform is worth 10 points.

-Knocking the leader (the player with the most points, which is symbolized
 by a crown over there player is the leader) is worth 20 points.

-Suicide dive offs are worth 5 points for every other player regardless of
 place of the suicide diver.

-That is it, and Power-Ups do not yield any points directly (but they help
 to garner the points faster, usually).


                            o----------------o
                            | Player Colours |
                            o----------------o

-Player 1 is Red.

-Player 2 is Blue.

-Player 3 is Yellow.

-Player 4 is Green.


                               o------------o
                               | Strategies |
                               o------------o

-Rapidly punching a person means you get very little power behind your
 punches.  A good idea is to punch them once, and then charge at them.  When
 you get in close, you can lay a strong punch that will send them flying.

-Use the SPINNER sparingly since human opponents will avoid you, and then
 slip inside the arc to punch your undefended self off.

-Always watch for the player who is stuck on the outside, so you can pick
 then off for easy points.

-If you are stuck on the outside, and the mob is coming for you, do not
 fight, but try to quickly run away.  This will often cause your opponents to
 miss you, allowing the necessary time to get back in where it is safer to
 be.

-Do not set your sight on exclusively busting the boxes for the power-ups,
 since you will often get hit from behind, fall off, and then the worst part
 of course is the other player getting the power-up!

-Going after the leader is a good way to catch up in points, but do not
 focus exclusively on one opponent.  You will usually end up getting knocked
 off by another player you were ignoring, which will drop you further back
 in the scoring.

-You can also use items as bait to draw your opponents into a trap.  By
 leaving the valued items lying around, many players will ignore other
 players in their haste for the items, at which point you punch them off the
 platform.  To really demoralize them, you can get the item right before
 they do, and then knock them off with the very Power-Up they were seeking!

10)This section will list controls, Power-Ups, Wheel of Danger and some
   strategies for scoring well.


                            o-----------------o
                            | Launch Controls |
                            o-----------------o

ANALOG Stick-> Pushing UP will cause your speed to increase, pushing DOWN
               will decrease your speed.  LEFT and RIGHT will move your
               Monkey in the corresponding directions.

C Stick------> No apparent use.

START--------> Pauses/unpauses the game.

L Button-----> No apparent use.

R Button-----> No apparent use.

Y Button-----> No apparent use.

X Button-----> No apparent use.

B Button-----> No apparent use.

A Button-----> This will cause your ball to open when you are in the air.
               It will also stop the Wheel of Danger (if that option is
               on).


                            o-----------------o
                            | Flight Controls |
                            o-----------------o

ANALOG Stick-> UP will cause your Monkey to enter a dive, thusly pick up
               speed while losing altitude.  DOWN will cause your Monkey
               to gain altitude at the cost of speed.  LEFT and RIGHT will
               cause your Monkey to move in those directions (although wind
               conditions can affect how these work).  When you land on a
               target, you can fight the momentum of your roll by holding
               the opposite direction (this is useful for holding into higher
               value sections of the target).


C Stick------> No apparent use.

START--------> Pauses/unpauses the game.

L Button-----> No apparent use.

R Button-----> No apparent use.

Y Button-----> No apparent use.

X Button-----> No apparent use.

B Button-----> No apparent use.

A Button-----> When presses, the Monkey Ball will close, and your monkey will
               plummet to the target or water (whichever happens to be
               underneath you).


                             o------------o
                             | Help Items |
                             o------------o

-These are collected by grabbing Bananas as you go towards the point targets
 on the water.  It does not matter if you get a Banana or Banana Bunch as
 they both move your meter one step up at a time.

-For every single Banana you collect, an additional 10 points will be added
 to your score.  For every Banana Bunch you collect, an  additional 20 points
 will be added to your score.

-The items you get are in an ascending order of Banana collection, and after
 using an item, your Banana collection value will return to none collected.

-For one Banana collected, you get the "0 mph" item.  This item will remove
 the wind from that Rounds launch.

-For two Bananas collected, you will get the "Brake Ball".  This item will
 cause your Monkey Ball to have very little roll once it lands on a target.

-For three Bananas collected, you will get the "Double Score".  This item
 will double the value of any target you end up on.

-For four Bananas collected, you will get the "Magnet Ball".  This item will
 cause your Monkey Ball to immediately "stick" to the target where ever it
 might hit (not true for side of the small yellow buoys though).

-For five Bananas collected, you will get the "Triple Score".  This item
 will triple the value of any target you end up on.

-If you collect past five, the counter will go back down to the lower value.
 Say you had three Bananas collected, and on the next launch you declined to
 use your Double Score.  On the current launch you proceed to get four
 Bananas, you will have seven total.  Since the item meter only goes five,
 it overflows to the bottom, where the additional two Bananas mean you will
 get the option of a Brake Ball next turn.


                           o-----------------o
                           | Wheel Of Danger |
                           o-----------------o

-This little option adds in the additional dangers to the already somewhat
 tough game.

-The Wheel of Danger has ten slots on it, and a spinner will spin around
 till the A Button is pressed to stop it.  Where ever the wheel stops moving
 is what effect the wheel will have on your current Round's launch.

-Four of the spots are blank, and if these are activated, nothing will happen
 what so ever.

-Two spots will have Spiked Mines, and if these are activated, floating
 Spiked Mines will appear over the target areas.  If these are touched by
 your Monkey, you will lose some speed, altitude, and direction.  This does
 not prevent your Monkey from still landing on a target however.

-Two spots will have Big Bombs, and if these are activated, a multitude of
 Bombs will be sprinkled on the target areas.  If these are touched by your
 Monkey, the ball will be thrown into the air.  This does not prevent your
 Monkey from landing on the target, but it will cause your monkey to twitch
 in pain as well as deposit you in an area different from the one you
 intended.

-Two spots will have Smoke Screens, and if these are activated, Cloud banks
 will appear over each target area.  These will not impede you in any way
 physically, but they will impede your vision till your Monkey draws very
 near  to the target platform.


                         o-------------------o
                         | Round One Targets |
                         o-------------------o

-The first target you will arrive at is a large circular object that has a
 10 point ring around the perimeter of it.  This then has a large 20 point
 ring closer in with four small 10 point depressions in it (these will hold
 your ball inside of them).  Then it is a smaller 40 point ring with one 20
 point depression and two 10 point depressions.  Then a really small 50
 point ring with three small 20 point depressions.  In the exact centre is
 an extremely small spot worth a very decent 100 points!

-The second target you will arrive at is a shrunk down version of the first
 target in this round, minus the 20 point ring.

-The third target you will arrive at is an even smaller target than the last
 one, but this one has some different point values.  The main target has an
 outside ring of 50 points, then a ring of 40 points, then a ring of 20
 points, and then a hole into the water.  There are two targets about one
 quarter the size of the one just listed circling the larger target (they
 always stay on opposite sides of the target from one another).  The outside
 ring of the smaller targets is worth 100 points, and the bulls-eye is worth
 a very respectable 200 points!

-There are two 500 point Yellow Buoys to be found in this round, and they
 are found to be about the same distance from the Launch Ramp as the second
 target.  One is found to the left of the second target, one is found to the
 right of the second target.  Turn left or right at about the first target,
 and then follow the Banana Bunch rings till you see the yellow Buoy below.


                         o-------------------o
                         | Round Two Targets |
                         o-------------------o

-The left target is a pyramid-shaped target that has ledges going up the
 sides.  The lowest ledge is worth 20 points. The second ledge is  worth 40
 points.  The third ledge is worth 100 points.  The fourth ledge is worth
 200 points.  The highest ledge and the bulls-eye of the target is worth an
 incredible 300 points.  Keep in mind that as the scoring ledges climb up
 the pyramid, the width of their area decreases.

-The centre target is a square-shaped target that has a small pyramid
 section in the middle of it.  The perimeter is worth 10 points.  The next
 section going in is worth 20 points.  The section following is 40 points
 (just small four triangles against the base of the pyramid).  There is a
 100 point ledge two-thirds of the way up the pyramid.  The very top of the
 pyramid and the bulls-eye is worth 200 points!  To score well here, come in
 on an angle so you can roll up one side of the pyramid to come to a rest on
 the 100 or 200 point sections!

-The right target is a large pyramid that has small ledges strewn across it
 at regular intervals.  There are eight small ledges worth 40 points as the
 lowest ledges (two per side of the pyramid).  Two 100 point ledges are found
 on the North and South sides of the pyramid (assuming that your Monkey
 starts facing North on the Launch Ramp).  Two 200 point ledges are found on
 the East and West sides of the pyramid!  The very pinnacle of the pyramid
 and the bulls-eye is worth a whopping 300 points!  Keep in mind that the
 ledges shrink in size as the point total grows in value.  Try to approach
 the target so you will be coming in over the lower ledges as you approach
 the higher ones.  this will allow you a safety net in case your aim is off
 for the higher ledges (the lower ledges might catch you for some points for
 you).

-There is one 500 point Yellow Buoy to be found in this round, and it is
 found past the centre target out in the open water.  Simply head straight
 over the centre target to find the Buoy.


                        o---------------------o
                        | Round Three Targets |
                        o---------------------o

-The left target is a Hexagon that divides into three separate pieces.
 These three separate pieces will move apart for a bit, and then they will
 rejoin.  The perimeter is worth 10 points.  The next section is worth 20
 points.  The next section is worth 40 points. the next section is worth 20
 points.  The next section is worth 50 points.  The bulls-eye is worth 100
 points.  Keep in mind that you may arrive with the platforms split apart.
 You should make an effort to try and watch the progress of the platforms
 motions from far away so you can time your arrival to match the platforms
 moving back towards one another.

-The centre target is another Hexagon, but this one divides into six equal
 pieces.  The large outside bar is worth 100 points.  The much smaller bar
 farther in is worth 200 points!  The bulls-eye is extremely small, but it is
 worth an incredible 300 points!  Keep in mind that you may arrive with the
 platforms split apart.  You should make an effort to try and watch the
 progress of the platforms motions from far away so you can time your
 arrival to match the platforms moving back towards one another.

-The right target is yet another Hexagon, but this one splits into six equal
 sections plus a small bulls-eye.  The perimeter values alternate between 20
 point values and 40 point values.  The smaller bars inside of them
 alternate between 50 point values and 100 point values.  The bulls-eye is
 worth 200 points!  Keep in mind that you may arrive with the platforms
 split apart.  You should make an effort to try and watch the progress of
 the platforms motions from far away so you can time your arrival to match
 the platforms moving back towards one another.

-There is one 500 point Yellow Buoy to be found in this round, and it is
 found short of the centre target.  It is directly ahead of the Launch Ramp,
 and it requires the player to be ready to go after it immediately.


                            o------------o
                            | Strategies |
                            o------------o

-For getting out to the farther targets, you should hold off on opening your
 ball once you have launched from the ramp.  Consequently, to go for a
 closer target, do not push forward as you roll down the ramp, and then open
 as soon you hit the air for a slower speed.

-Try to get your Banana collection up to the second or fourth spot (Brake
 Ball and Magnet Ball).  This will allow you to go after the small but
 valuable 500 point Yellow Buoys.  These items help your Monkey to stay on
 the tiny surface.

-If you face a headwind, you will be carried higher into the air if you push
 DOWN.  This means that it will take longer to get closer to the water and
 targets, which make for a more accurate landing.

-If you have a tailwind, you will fall much faster.  This means that pushing
 DOWN will make your Monkey quickly lose speed as it gains less height than
 it normally would.

-Start your Target games by getting good at hitting the 100 point or 200
 point bulls-eyes as they tend to be fairly large.  Work your way up to the
 300 point bulls-eyes before you start to work on getting the 500 point
 Yellow Buoys with the assistance of items.  Then you should work towards
 getting the Yellow Buoys with the Double Score or Triple Score items
 activated.

-When going down the Launch Ramp, go down the left or the right side to get
 a Banana every time for a free 10 points, plus one Banana towards your item
 activation.

-Right from the start are three rings of Banana Bunches that are placed so
 you can get all three.  If this is combined with the point above this, you
 can have a Magnet Ball all ready to go for the next round of Monkey Target.

-When you reach the last Round of your current game, be sure to use your
 item because it will not matter when the game is over.


   This is one hell of a distraction from Normal Mode, and it has a
   cult-like following to challenge.  You can find more than a few high
   score pages dedicated to this very topic of Monkey Target on the World
   Wide Web!

                         | Nine Ball Rules |
                         o-----------------o

-Whoever pockets the 9 ball first is the winner of the rack.

-You must always hit the lowest ball first.

-After hitting the lowest ball, if it or another ball goes in, then you can
 shoot again.  Another way to foul is to not hit the low ball first.

-Putting the cue ball in a hole is a foul, and the next shot automatically
 is your opponents.

-The game is usually a best of 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9.

                          | Strategies |
                          o------------o

-Try to hit the low ball into the nine ball in an attempt to win the game
 quickly if the opportunity presents itself.  This can turn a game around
 very quickly, and it also makes your opponent a little upset (may make
 mistakes).

-Sometimes you may have no viable shot at the low ball, so a good idea is to
 just blast the ball as hard as you can.  This can often lead to the ball
 flying around, and go in, or knock another ball in.  This will prolong your
 turn.

-If you think you have no real chance of making a shot, just hit the ball so
 it makes contact with the low ball, and use spin to put the ball far from
 the low ball.  This take practice to master, but it is a very useful
 technique.

12)This section will go over the controls, explanation of the scoring,
   Challenge Mode , and some strategies to help you score a little higher.

Analog Stick-> Moves your Monkey around to position the starting spot for
               your throw.

C Stick------> No apparent use.

START--------> Pauses/unpauses the game.

L Button-----> Puts spin on the ball so it goes to the left.  This will also
               remove spin that causes the ball to go to the right (it would
               had to have been put on already on that throw).

R Button-----> Puts spin on the ball so it goes to the right.  This will also
           remove spin that causes the ball to go to the left (it would had
           to have been put on already on that throw).

Y Button-----> No apparent use.

X Button-----> Toggles the scoreboard from showing three frames to all ten

                               | Scoring |
                               o---------o

-Every pin is worth 1 point.

-You get to throw up to two balls per frame, with the exception of the 10th
 frame, where you might get to throw three.

-If all 10 pins are knocked down in one throw on a frame, that is called a
 strike.

-If all 10 pins are knocked down in two throws on a frame, that is called a
 spare.

-When you get a strike in a frame, you will get 10 points for the pins you
 knocked down, plus whatever points you get on your next two throws.

~~~~~~~~~~~
~~EXAMPLE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~

10 points + 6 points + 3 points = 19 points for that one frame.

-When you get a spare in a frame, you will get 10 points for the pins you
 knocked down, plus whatever points you get on the next throw.

-To get the perfect score of 300, you will need to throw 12 strikes.


                            o----------------o
                            | Challenge Mode |
                            o----------------o

This mode is for One Player only, and it pits your skills against 10
pre-arranged situations.  The catch is that you only get 11 total attempts.
This means that you can only fail once on your attempt to clear them all!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~PATTERN ONE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Called a Standard Formation, it has all 10 pins.  You need to get a strike to
clear the challenge.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~PATTERN TWO~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Called a Bucket, this formation has the 3, 5, 6, and 9 pins still standing.
Aim your shot to hit the three dead on to knock them all down.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~PATTERN THREE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Called a Baby Split, this formation has the 2 and 7 pins still standing.
Aim your shot so it will hit the 2 pin so it will fly back and hit the 7
pin.  You can also aim your shot it will hit both of the pins on the roll,
but you will need to throw from the right side of the lane to do so.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~PATTERN FOUR~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Called a One In The Dark, this formation has the 2 and 8 pin still standing.
Aim your shot it will hit the 2 pin dead on, and it will go back to hit the
8 pin (if it misses, the ball will not if done correctly).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~PATTERN FIVE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Called a Fit Split, this formation has the 9 and 10 pin still standing.  Aim
your shot so it will go between the two pins exactly in the middle to get
them both.  You can also cut the 9 pin sharply to make it get the 10 pin,
but this is a harder method of doing so.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~PATTERN SIX~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Called a Wash Out, this formation has the 1, 2, 4, and 10 pins still
standing.  Aim your shot so it will be to the left of the head pin, and it
will send the head pin flying across to pick the 10 pin off in the corner
(the ball will take care of the other pins).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~PATTERN SEVEN~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Called a Christmas Tree, this formation has the 3, 7, and 10 pins still
standing.  Move your ball to the right side of the lane, and then aim your
shot straight down the lane so it will cut the 3 pin on the right side.
This will cause the 3 pin to take out the 7 pin (hopefully), and your ball
will hit the 10 pin.  A fairly hard shot to make.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~PATTERN EIGHT~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Called a Dime Store, this formation has the 5 and 10 pin still standing.
Aim to the left of the 5 pin. and cut it so it will fly and take out the 10
pin.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~PATTERN NINE~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Called a Little Three, this formation has the 4, 7, and 9 pins still
standing.  Move your ball to the left side of the lane, aim it so it will
cut the 4 pin on the left side to send the pin flying into 9 pin while your
ball continues on to hit the 7 pin.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~PATTERN TEN~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Called a Big Three, this formation has the 4, 7, and 10 pins still standing.
Move your ball to the extreme far left of the lane, throw the ball straight
down the edge of the lane so you cut the 4 pin a little more thin than you
did on the last one to send it across the lane to get the 10 pin (the ball
will get the 7 pin).


                              o------------o
                              | Strategies |
                              o------------o

-Try to throw with full power to get more oooompf into the pins.  This will
 cause the pins to fly farther, faster, and with more spin than a less
 powered shot (it means there is a better shot at getting the strike).

-DO NOT leave an open frame (where you leave pins up after two balls).  not
 only will you miss out on additional points thanks to a strike or spare,
 but it makes catching up to your opposition extremely difficult.

-Work on your spin technique shots until you can use them well.  You will
 then be able to make any shot thanks to your masterful control of the ball.

-DO NOT throw directly at the head pin.  If you do, a very nasty split will
 often be the result, and it will be extremely hard to pick up that spare.

-If your opponent is beating you, you could always try to distract them (but
 don't tell them I told you do it, take the blame yourself!).

-Whoever scores lower in stroke play wins.  In match play, whoever scores
 lower on more hole than the other wins.

-making the hole in 1 is a hole-in-one, 2 is a birdie, 3 is a par, and 4is a
 bogey.  Otherwise, the score in "CUP IN X".

-Falling off of the playing course results in being Out of Bounds (O.B.).
 This results in a penalty stroke added to your score, and the ball is
 replaced to the point of origin.

-There is a limit of 10 strokes per hole.  You have till your ninth shot to
 get the ball in the hole, or else you get the maximum score of 10.

                           | Walkthrough |
                           o-------------o

-Hole 1 is an easy hole.  Just adjust your aim to the left a little bit from
 the default, and hit with just under 3/4 power on 80 yard hitting strength.
 If you miss, just make the easy second shot.

-Hole 2 has an elevated hole, and although the distance says it is 43 yards
 to the hole, you must hit at about halfway between the 2nd and 3rd hack on
 the 80 yard hitting strength.  If you have over/under shot, and have rolled
 to a stop farther away than you began, you must hit a little bit harder
 than was required for the tee shot.  This hole can be hard on your score.

-Hole 3 looks like a real golf hole.  You need to hit the 80 yard hitting
 strength at about 3/4 to get to a close position (just aim to right of the
 wall).  Then you just need to hit the closer shot in for two provided you
 have a good look.  Otherwise, you will likely get a par.  You should only
 score higher than par if you go O.B.

-Hole 4 has an elevated green area with the pin.  You just need to hit the
 distance listed to get on.  Then it is a simple matter of picking the
 correct distance on the next shot for the easy birdie.  You should do no
 worse than par here.

-Hole 5 is a challenging hole because you must pick the correct angle so you
 can: get down towards the hole, and not fly off to the O.B.  Aim near the
 start of the slope at the wall, and hit at 3/4 on 40 yard hitting strength.
 This will put you at last slope before the green.  You must carefully putt
 down the slope (very lightly) because there is no wall (O.B.), and make
 sure you compensate for the slope if your putt is crooked on the slope.
 This is a harder hole where birdies are rare, and even pars will often
 elude you.  If you are accurate, then you will thrive on this hole.

-Hole 6 is a banana shaped hole.  If you can hit your ball with the proper
 strength, you can ride the top of the hill all the way to the hole.  If you
 just want to assure a score of 2 or 3, then just aim up the right wall with
 full strength.  You will still end up close, with a fairly easy second
 putt.

-Aim between the two closest hills on Hole 7, and hit it between the 3rd
 hack and the end of the meter.  This will cause your ball to roll close to
 the hole (even might go in if you are lucky).  Then hit easy second shot
 in.

-Hole 8 is shaped like a rainbow, and it slopes left to right.  It is very
 easy to go O.B., so to tee off, use default aim, and hit at half distance
 on the 80 yard strength to get yourself past halfway point.  This will
 allow an easier second shot.  You must make adjustments for any slope in
 your line.  Not an easy hole, with few pars, and fewer birdies.

-Hole 9 is a flat area with holes strewn throughout it periodically.  Aim
 using the C Stick to plot a course of safety, and hit at about 3/4 on 40
 yard hitting strength.  This will leave a fairly easy second putt.  Once
 practiced, this is a birdie hole 9 times out of 10.

-Hole 10 is a big circle with a hole into he middle.  Aim to the left or
 right of the hole in the middle of the surface, and hit at a point between
 the 2nd and 3rd hack mark.  Then it is a simple putt for two.

-Hole 11 is flat with little walls strewn throughout (some are blocking the
 direct path to the hole).  Aim at the first wall on the left that is
 vertical when compared to your view.  If done just right, it is a hole in
 one when hit at the 3rd hack of 40 yard hitting strength.  If it does miss,
 then you should have an easy tap in for two.  Even if you mess up badly, a
 par is still easy to come by.

-Hole 12 is the hardest hole in the game.  The hole and tee are on the same
 level of ground, but there is a large hill that must be navigated to get
 from tee to green.  This is exceptionally hard, because you need to hit the
 hole to stay on the other side.  Aim somewhere between the second bush at
 the top (from the left) and the tree to have a chance of this actually
 working.  You will take a lot of 10 scores on this hole, even with lots of
 practice.

-Hole 13 has an elevated tee off position, but it matters not because of the
 large gully in the way.  You must use the wall to ride around to the green.
 Aim towards the side, and hit between the 2nd and 3rd hack mark on the 80
 yard hitting strength.  If you hit a good tee shot, birdies are common, but
 if you flounder on the tee, this hole can be bad for your score.

-Hole 14 starts on a platform with a bowling bowl like design that drops to
 a round platform.  The two hole closest to the tee drop off to O.B., so you
 have two options.  One is to play it safe, and just hit it between the
 holes to land safe below, or use the middle hole to go for the hole in one.
 The problem with going for the hole in one is if you hit too hard, you will
 end up falling off because of the lip of the platform being in the way.
 Aim at the hole, and use just under halfway power of 80 yard strength, or
 (the better, more accurate method), of switching to the 40 yard strength
 and hitting at the 3rd hack mark.  This will get a hole in one, or close
 enough for a tap in for two.  A few rounds of experience here, and a hole
 in one will be common.

-Hole 15 is two half pipe ramps that you must use to shoot over the gaps
 between them.  Aim up the ramp towards the very edge, and hit at about
 halfway between the 2nd and 3rd hack marks on 80 yard hitting strength.
 This should land you, and keep you on the other ramp.  You then have a
 straight on putt for the birdie.  Once again, your score is dependent upon
 a good tee shot.

-Hole 16 is a tough hole.  The green is elevated, and the only way to reach
 it is to hit up the wall, and slant your way onto it.  Aim to the right or
 left, and use about 3/4 (or a little more) to get up the hill, and then
 roll onto the green.  Then it is a simple matter of tapping in for two.  If
 you miss your tee shot, you will probably need to hit the ball farther back
 form the wall to get the proper angle to make the hill.  This can be a very
 frustrating hole.

-Hole 17 Has three separate parts of the hole: The tee, a pyramid, and a
 green.  You need to hit onto the pyramid to roll to the green.  Aim for the
 top area (a little to the right), and hit at 3/4 power of the 80 yard
 hitting strength.  This should put you on the green (although you will
 barely hold onto the small hill at the back).  Then just tap in for two.
 This is a hard hole no matter how much practice you have put into it.

-Hole 18 is yet another tough hole to contend with.  It has an elevated
 green, and it has an O.B. pit underneath it.  Aim directly at the middle of
 the green, and hit at just under 3/4 power on 80 yard hitting strength to
 make the green.  If you mess this up, then you will need to figure out the
 power require to get up there because your distance will be different than
 the tee shot.  The tee shot makes or breaks you as it has for most of the
 holes.


As you can tell, the front nine is much friendlier than the back nine.  I
advise you to start there with a beginner so they can get a feel for the
game, before you subject them to the horrors of the back nine.
