Level Select/Head Test

At the Title screen, press start once.  Highlight "Start Game" and punch in C,
A, Left, Right, B.  If done correctly, Headdy will go "Yas!"  Press start
again and you can choose your level.  Punch in the code with "Options"
highlighted and you'll go to the Head Check screen!  Neato, huh?

Secret Bonus Points

Oh how we Headdy fans love to hear it, "He's got a Secret Bonus Point."  This
is a listing of all the secret bonus points I know of.  Big huge Thankyous go
to the following people:

       -Heitor Chang and Saviour-V for verifying the 9-2 Bonus
       -Mathew Ashby, for the 8-3 Tarot Bonus
       -Michael Oester, for the 8-2 Missile Man Bonus
       -TimeStones, for clarifying the 5-3 Midboss Bonus.  You don't even wanna 
	know how I thought it was done.  ^_^
       -Christopher Stearns, my brother, who stumbled into more than just a few 
	when I wasn't looking..
       -And of course, Bob Tomasovich, who wrote the first FAQ for me to leech a 
	couple SBPs from!  ^_^  (Marked with an * Asterisk)

7-1  Headdy Wonderland     One of the cows, when jumped on, will make a horse
                           noise instead of a moo.  Smash him!

                           On top of the first totem pole is a big sad bird. 
                           Smack him before he flies away for a bonus!

                           This isn't a bonus, but it's fun!  When the boss
                           appears, try to get Heather to miss when she throws
                           the keys by making the Gatekeeper face the wrong
                           direction.  The look on her face is priceless!

                           Let the Nasty Gatekeeper toss his arms off the
                           screen until he grabs Bino, smack him for a secret
                           bonus point.

Total: 3/3                 Total thus far: 29/29

8-1  The Rocket Tier       Collect all the 500pts icons at the top of the
                           screen for a bonus.

8-2  Illegal Weapon 3      After defeating Missile Man, hit any of the
                           soldiers who fall from the balcony for a Secret
                           Bonus Point!

8-3  Fun Forgiven          When fighting the sun boss, Tarot, hit him with the
                           heart sphere three times in a row for a secret bonus

                           At the very end of the stage, there should be a
                           "Don't Hit" box on the ceiling to the left of the
                           exit.  Hit it for a secet bonus!

8-4  Vice Versa            The heads that hang upside down will fire orange
                           shots at you.  Destroy three shots for a bonus

8-5  Twin Freaks           When the boss is green, it will occasionally fire
                           heads out of its ear.  Amongst these heads is Bino! 
                           Smash him for a secret bonus point!  This one is
                           really hard to get.

Total: 6/6                 Total Thus far: 35/35

9-1  Fatal Contraption     Destroy either of the jumping, brown, Cocoa heads
                           as you move up the elevator.  I do not believe it
                           is possible to get them both.

                           Grab the Hammer Head and break every block you can,
                           whether it requires the hammer or not, for a secret
                           bonus point.  Timing is critical, you must grab the
                           hammer at the last second so it will last all the
                           way up to the top.  Destroy hammer boxes first, so
                           if it wears out you'll still be able to destroy the
                           other boxes.

9-2 Far Trek		Get through the cooridor without being hit by
			by the Super Finagler or glomped by Trouble Bruin.
			it's very difficult and I have never actually done it
			myself--good luck!

9-3  Finale Analysis       This isn't a bonus, but watch Dark Demon's crystal
                           ball.  The color that it stops on will determine
                           his attack, so grab the head that will best enable
                           you to dodge it!  (Go for the Pinhead and be safe
                           every time if you're a real weanie!)

			When the Crystal flashes green, Dark Demon attacks
			with a row of guys wearing pointy hats from the 
			bottom of the screen.  Use the Hammer head to destroy
			them all for a secret bonus point!

Total: 4/4                 Grand Total: 39/39

And your fantastic prize?  The satisfaction of a job well done, sorry.  ^_^
