    Before you start the game you pick a mode Kids or Adult:
    
    Kids is easier because you get more moneys, life is longer, View Mark 
    last longer and the enemies is easier to beat adult mode is just 
    hard. Which ever mode you playing you shouldn't much difficulties 
    using this walkthrough. 
    
    Joe The Hero:
    =============
    
    After learning how to punch and kick Press Z
    
    Punch and kick the enemies and collect stuff while you go along you 
    soon see Captain Blue again
    
    When the arrow is up use the control stick and when it down use 
    control stick down these will avoid his attack. Start punching him 
    and a cut scene will appear and he teach you how to use slow motion 
    (keep holding L)
    
    Run and fight everything using your new skill.  When V-Mark goes out 
    u turn back new normal person but your V-Mark goes up quite quick as 
    well
    
    And the end of here you will see joker
    He an easy mini boss.  Just use Slow and kick him. once he gone get 
    the key and now for the slot machine. Use slow and use punch it and 
    make it go V, V, V after that you get a key to the next room
    
    Go to the door.  Slow and kick those traps and you will get burger 
    this will increase your health and kill the enemies. Do this until 
    you get the next room.  Kill the guy that have the gun.  Best way to 
    kill him now is to use slow and kick him.  try to avoid his bullet he 
    soon die and leave a few easy enemies then a pile of book kick it to 
    the right of the room.  Go to the next room.
    
    Kill the enemies you will see there some spikes.  Jump on the thing 
    that is flying now slow and punch the switch. Go over there and jump 
    across the next the room.  Kill enemies and get the key. Go to the 
    room
    
    When you get at the centre you see a helicopter flying pass. try 
    kicking the bullet back in the helicopter or jump on the helicopter 
    and use slow and start kicking and punching it.  It will let enemies 
    go down but ignore but try to ignore them.  
    
    Save game
    
    Fight those bats and jump over those barrow (this is hard) then 
    backtrack to the beginning of the room and use slow to make a big 
    splash now run to the next room or you can just make a big splash 
    then dash to the door. 
    
    You see green flying robot carrying bullets jump and kick them to the 
    floor now quickly beat them up, if you keep slow motion when you beat 
    him on the air their backpack will explode this will you kill them as 
    well.  at the end of the room you see Captain Blue again
    
    Use your move which should be easier then the previous one use slow 
    and you should beat him in no time.
    
    After beating Captain Blue up you see a barrow ok uppercut it and use 
    match speed to go under it
    
    Fight the enemies and you soon see a barrow rolling down use match 
    speed, don't even bother fight the enemies because the barrow do it 
    for you, once you get to the bottom of the room you see some touch 
    match speed kick or punch it, go through the door and get ready to 
    fight the first boss Charles the third. Go to the Boss FAQs section 
    to find out to beat him
    
    After the boss battle you should get your grades I got Awesome anyway 
    save the game and go to the next episode  but you might want to power 
    up first
    
    
    Some Like It Red Hot:
    =====================
    
    I think you should beat the enemies up using match speed first after 
    that jump on the platform and use match speed until get at the top 
    then jump over it
    
    Once you to the over side you see a cow boy robot. Use slow motion to 
    punch his bullet back to them and use match speed and punch to kill 
    them fast otherwise if you slow you get them a chance to get up again 
    and don't want that to happen.
    
    Fight everything using match speed then jump over the whole for now 
    and fight Captain Blue for the third time after that and you'll have 
    learn Zoom motion (B button or C stick) go back and jump in to the 
    hole
    
    You will see a puzzle use view kick to open the gate. Run down to you 
    see a dead end. Collect all the points then quickly get on to a 
    platform once you on it match speed to fill the water up. 
    
    Loads of laser in the next room so avoid it using slow motion a gate 
    should close and see platform and an annoying bats. Jump on the 
    platform and make your way up to the top
    
    Fight all the annoying enemies once you get to the end of the room 
    face the electricity and use slow motion you should able to garter 
    some electric on the machine and the door will open
    
    Fight a joker then use slow and view on the slot machine you may want 
    get a burger and some money before you get the V's after that go to 
    the door lock and you will get of the sewer
    
    Be careful cars will coming to run you over you hitting the enemies 
    and the green flying robot now have to use lighting thunder but it 
    not that hard
    
    Jump over the cars and run forward until you see Charles poster, you 
    will get two cars busses in the way enemies will come which is easy 
    after that done new one come, now new enemies come (girl robots) they 
    fight like Captain Blue in a girlie way using slow motion punches 
    will get them down quite fast, if they both around you use zoom jump 
    down.
    
    After fighting them jump on a buss, once you on it use slow motion 
    and you will see the buss on the air now use match speed to get to 
    the other side.
    
    Run forward then you see helicopter that you have to fight, You can 
    either use the same skills as the first or too get them down even 
    faster use view kick at them. 
    
    After beating them up run forward and you get a cut scene that you 
    run to the hotel. Save power up if you need to and continue with the 
    game
    
    After beating everything go to centre of the room jump on the lights 
    then zoom jumping up to bring more down. Jump over them then you a 
    statue holding a ruby, ok so need that crystal right? Match speed 
    punch the statue will brake. Put it on the evaluator now get the 
    other crystal and go inside the lift
    
    When the lift stop get the platform to come down by using slow motion 
    when you get up the top zoom jump and will get a key which you can 
    unlock the next door
    
    After some really easy enemies you get soldiers swords robots these 
    really easy if you brought red hot kick but if haven't then use slow 
    combos at them. 
    
    After fighting in here get the book and put back to the book shelves, 
    the book shelves will come closer jump on it and zoom jump to make a 
    hole. Go to the room that is open and cowboy robot will appear beat 
    them up will see a light under on the floor, use zoom and jump down
    
    Fight soldiers swords robots and leave this room, can you see the 
    barrow rolling towards you meaning you have to fight everything and 
    get the key before you be crushed. Once you get the key quickly go to 
    the lift
    
    Punch the bomb towards the door and use slow motion to blow the door 
    up, if you  punch the enemies towards the bomb and holding slow 
    motion that will kill that enemies for you -u- sports robot can 
    easily be killed by using zoom kick or slow combos. 
    
    After that blow the next door up and you see the girl robot have a 
    key so beat her up and collect everything in this room
    
    Leave this room and go to the previous room. Jump up and kick the 
    bomb towards the ceiling. Wait until the enemies come down. This 
    helps because up there have some beam laser up there which is quite 
    hard to avoid when you beating them up, after fighting everything 
    double jump to get up there, match speed the bomb until there light 
    up with fire then slow motion to explode the door
    
    Beat the couple of sports robot and go to the lift. Next go to the 
    door and fight the enemies, you will see a switch on the left so jump 
    down on it and a ladder will come down, jump on the ladder then enter 
    the room and get ready to fight joker again after he done get to the 
    slot machine and get the V's put the book back to the shelves.
    
    The lift is locked so go to the only door that open, you will see a 
    arrow pointing down on the bath so jump down and will see girl robot 
    beat her up and get the key, you see the table on the left step on it 
    then right jump out of this room and enter the lift
    
    Uppercut the big bomb to the platform, keep doing this until get top 
    the last one you need to punch it through the door to make explode 
    now enter the room and fight Hulk Davidson after that battle save the 
    game
    
    2,000,000 Leagues Under The Sea:
    ================================
    After a long level, here a short level to play but it not going to be 
    easy.
    
    You on your six machine so shoot everything around until you get to 
    the end of this part, you will see a plane keep match speed shooting 
    at it when come stay at left hand corner, if he send bullet at you 
    spin kick it back
    
    You now jumping down, punch the boxes while you doing this and you 
    might get stuff from it whatever you don't zoom jump down if you want 
    to punch some boxes
    
    Fight everything here then collect the remote and the platform will 
    follow you before getting the putting down the switch at the centre 
    of the right hand side jump on the platform and punch the pink box 
    down, this will get you unlimited view mark for a while anyway punch 
    the platform on to the switch by slow motion and enter the next room.
    
    They all enemies you meet apart from electric guards. You can either 
    zoom kick it or zoom jump it to kill them. You will know when you get 
    to the end of the room because there a joker kill the joker, play 
    around with the slot machine which may take a while because you need 
    to keep jumping because it on the air. After the 3V's you will get a 
    key card, put it on the wall slide 
    
    Beat everyone in this room then backtrack to the beginning and beat 
    Grane Bruce
    
    Viewtiful Escape:
    =================
    
    Go forward zoom in jump everything and you will get the remote for 
    the platform, go back and get the platform, if you need to get the 
    platform to go down so that it won't get crushed those rockets, an 
    easy way to kill the enemies is upper cut them to the rockets. When 
    the platform is forward jump on it and match speed to make it go up.
    
    In this room you will see flying green robots again just send back 
    the bullet by punching it, when they are done match speed the 
    platform to open the gate now quickly jump to the next room. 
    
    Make your way back to the wheel room and there a new enemies that 
    wearing yellow to fight, now they are the hardest enemies to fight in 
    this game just wait till confused (they will have question mark above 
    there heads) then fight them at there back or zoom jump down on their 
    back after fighting them place the wheel where it mend to goes and go 
    now go right and jump up. 
    
    Keep running until there two way direction of course take the right 
    jump over the holes and be careful with the rockets. You will soon 
    see rockets going upwards used match speed and run to the other end 
    jump down run to the other side and repeat until you get a new area. 
    
    Fight the enemies and you will see wheel turning fast and one of 
    those yellow robots that have the key. Slow punch the wheel when it 
    have a yellow label saying stop after doing that kill the yellow 
    robot and place the key
    
    Get all the way to the bottom and you see a puzzle, yellow robot (-n-
    ) and flying robots. Kick the flying robots bombs towards yellow 
    robot and hopefully he die then fight the easy one. The puzzle does 
    get annoying because it always changed and hard to remember. Zoom 
    kick it. remember where it highlight and use slow punch when you done 
    it correctly it will stop the rocket moving.
    
    Backtrack to the wheel room fighting some enemies in the way before 
    turning the wheel to the other side get the burger and the front of 
    the wheel which it isn't there before that's so weird anyway to the 
    only direction you have to go and get ready to fight a boss Another 
    Joe.
    
    Who was the real Joe then? Anyway there a bigger problem now get 
    which is get out of off here. Run until reach to the dead ends now 
    jump on the platform ok that was the easy part done next you need to 
    uppercut the rockets and go under it keep doing for the next two 
    rockets after that  you see a rockets going up jump on it, slow 
    motion when on the air match speed and straightaway jump on a 
    platform once you get on there jump, jump and jump avoiding the laser 
    once you get to the top save it
    
    The midnight thunder boy:
    =========================
    
    You start with some enemies so beat them and soon you will meet a 
    tank which is easy to beat when you hear a funny noise jump then 
    punch the bullet back in after the tank done ignore the hole for now 
    and fight the plane. The plane is quite hard because you need to be 
    careful with both corners (there  fire) do the same skills with the 
    previous helicopter and you beat it very quickly
    
    Go back to the hole once you get done there now run to a dead end, 
    jump up use slow motion to get a wooden platform to appear make 
    another then match speed to fill the fire, the platform will brake 
    but you should able to go the next room
    
    Travel till you get to the end which you will know because you see a 
    joker which you should know how to beat it by now. After he beaten 
    get three bombs on the slot machine, punch one of them into the hole 
    then imminently jump on top the slot machine and slow motion until 
    you get out, you might need couple of retries before you get it 
    right. 
    
    Fight a few more enemies, a tank and planes after that jump on a 
    train which you can now say "bye" to this city. 
    
    The train part is quite easy. Just beat everything fast and collect 
    the key a long the way, here a tip do not spent too long beating an 
    enemies. Once you get the end stand on the switch, if you got some 
    time play with the match speed or slow motion anyway power up, save 
    and get ready to beat up a easy boss named Alastor
    
    The Magnificent 5:
    ==================
    
    There nothing I can say for this level you just need to fight five 
    boss which you can find on the Boss FAQs section. Well good luck
    
    Joe and Sylvia:
    ===============
    
    Last level of the game and the hardest, go right to the top and use 
    zoom jumping down using slow motion it will make the switch on, use 
    with the other 2 switches
    
    Space tank is harder then normal tank because they have longer health 
    but doing the same skills should able to beat them. After you be 
    beaten the tank go to the next room 
    
    Go right to the top and beat Metal Leo by zoom kicking his head do 
    the same the with the other Leo (at the bottom of the room)then leave 
    this room
    
    Fight everything in this room epically the joker, do the slot machine 
    you may want to use match speed because this slow machine it so slow 
    anyway the next room it quite hard because you need to punch the 
    rocket back to the spaceship and it take ages to finish this task, it 
    doesn't help when the yellow robot attack you which you might want to 
    be them up first. The laser can easy be avoid by jumping over it or 
    using slow motion.
    
    The rest of this level can be easy and it also can be hard. You just 
    need to be everything up and you meet all of them before. Once you 
    fighting Metal Leo on the time limit battle you need to fight King 
    Blue then Captain Blue for the fourth and final time.
    
    Congratulation you have beaten the game, be proud of yourself

    Boss FAQs:
    *********************************************************************
    
    Charles the 3rd (Dark Fiend):
    =============================
    
    This is the easiest boss because his skill help you to beat him. if 
    he on the air use slow and punch him.
     
    lots of little bats use match speed punch this get loads of goods 
    sometime damage him but even it don't you can still get something out 
    of him
    
    when rocks drop from the ceiling dodge it using slow when he near the 
    to the rocks uppercut it he will fall down and this is your chance to 
    beat him badly
    
    he soon use a sweep of floor move a lot of people jump over him but 
    don't instead use slow mo and keep punching him badly until he fly 
    off again. He sometime do a nasty red boomerang to dodge this use 
    slow motion.  repeat this skill and you been him in no time
    
    Hulk Davidson (Iron Ogre):
    ==========================
    
                         =============
    
    
    Platform 
    ===========                             ================
    
    
    
                   Joe                        Hulk
    
    slow down and dodge his moves then speed punch him when he make a 
    sound let go off speed as soon he use his attack use slow again, you 
    will now turn back to normal Joe. make sure hulk see you and run to 
    the end jump on the platform when he crush to the wall and gone dizzy 
    use match speed and beat him up, 
    
    if he send rockets use slow motion and punch it to go back to him.  
    repeat this skill till he dies
    
    Grane Bruce:
    ===========
    
    Grane Bruce maybe stupid but he quite hard to beat. when he going to 
    bite you use match speed to run away from him or throw a Voomerang to 
    stop him running towards you. 
    
    he will send fishes out use slow mo and punch them before you do 
    anything, when he send out a bomb stand behind the bomb and wait he 
    bite you but hopefully he bite the bomb when he does hit him, this 
    will damage a lot of his health. when he use his spinning thing use 
    viewtiful forever and it should dodge it .
    
    After he jumping he will rest. don't let him rest because he get his 
    health back so what you do well punch him. 
    
    If you need health go at the high left hand corner and get the 
    hamburger this only work on episode five
    
    Another Joe:
    ============
    
    Another Joe fight like Jet Li so you might have some difficulty 
    fighting him. basically you need to know his location when he 
    telescope himself if you know where they are just punch him
    
    if he send illusions AJ then use view kick(the spinning kick) or 
    throw Voomerang to kill them these two skills  will hit him for sure.  
    He sometime send your six machine to attack well hit it and get a 
    hamburger
    
    Alastor:
    ========
    
    Like another Joe you need to know his location but he usually on the 
    air on the ground near where you are
    
    Once you send swords you can't really do anything to them just run 
    away. He make stone move with electricity you should punch the stone 
    to stop it moving or throw a voomerang to stop Alstor when he come 
    down near you slow motion and beat him if you punch him toward he

    is still hard.

    rockets or use view kicking, lighting just stand between them, beam 
    just keep away from it (don't jump) once you see him use the yellow

    at the corners. His moves is Joe red hot kick but he will say 
    "Capital Kick" which slide kick you must stay away from this either 
    run away or jump but that skill is not so bad and his other attack is
