NOTE : PLEASE READ THE BASICS STUFF OF MY GUIDE BEFORE READING MY GUIDE
TO AVOID CONFUSION.

Dedication
This guide dedicated to DesertEagle for the laugh you have given me.

Introduction
This is my first guide so don't complain much. I thought this game would
be an ideal game to type my first guide because it is a short game. I
just want to see if it gets posted. If it does then I'll type more
guides for you happy folk out there. If you find any inaccurate info or
something typed bad then email or AIM me. Direction is a bit confusing
in this game. I will also put in the conversations as an extra. An
example...

-Description of part of a picture-
Person : The Message.

About this game
In my opinion, this gameboy advance is an excellent remake of the ps2
version. Why? They have the comics and real voices! A man with nothing
to lose who is fighting the people who are against him. That's all I
got :(. I am a fan of Max Payne. I am waiting for Max Payne 2 to come
out for greatest hits. Why? Cause I don't have a job or $50.

1.0 - Basic Stuff
===================
Controls are quite simple. When I started playing, it took me one minute
to get used to the movement. You can always change how you move in the
options. Just in case you didn't know.

L = Select Weapon
R = Bullet Time
B = Jump, Examine
A = Shoot
Select = Painkillers
Start = Pause

Moving
Moving can be fixed on options but I prefer the default. Look below for
what happens if you press the Direction pad. If you press left then
Max moves in a forward. If you press up left then Max will move
diagnally. It may not seem like it but when you see the game, then you
will understand.

    Left               Up-Left
      \                   |
Down -   - Up  Down-Left - - Up-Right
        \                 |
        Right         Down-Right

About Bullet Time
If you are in bullet time then you cannot get shot and everything moves
in slow-mo. Bullet time is recharged a small amount every time you kill
an enemy.

Bullet Time
Stand still and press bullet time. I don't like this as much as I like
shootdodge.

Shootdodge
Press bullet time while moving. This will cause you to jump into mid-air
for a short period of time. Useful for not taking so much of the bullet
time meter. Plus it looks cool. Abuse this ability.

Painkillers
Painkillers will not kill you if you take to many. Painkillers heal your
pain. Maximum for eight.

During the game
Look at the screen I made below.
1. This shows health. It is shaped like Max Payne. Do not let it fill up
completely red. 
2. This is an hourglass. It shows you if you can use bullet time.
The longer you use bullet time, the more the hourglass becomes empty.
Once the hourglass is empty, you cannot use bullet time and must kill
something to fill it up a little bit.
3. If you have any painkillers then it will be displayed here. It looks
like a bottle with a red cross on it. You can have up to 8 painkillers.
Use when you health is in critical.
4. Shows the amount of ammo you have for the gun you are holding.
5. Shows the maximum amount of ammo you can have for the gun you are
holding.
6. Shows the gun you are holding.

Exclamation Point
If there is an exclamation point above Max then you can examine the
object near you for something special.

Direction
The direction is confusing but in my opinion it makes the game look
cool. It would look strange if it was in a different view.

2.0 - Intro
=============
When you turn on the gameboy, Max Payne speaks...

-Max stares at the sky-
Max Payne : To make any kind of sense of it. I need to go back three
years. Back to the night the pain started.

-Max is talking to Alex-
Max's Thoughts : I was still in the force back then. NYPD, Manhattan,
Midtown North Precinct. Hell's Kitchen.
Alex : So, when are you coming to work for me, detective Payne?
Max : You'd make me work undercover in some hellhole. Sorry Alex.
Michelle and the baby come first.
-Max puts out a cigarette-
Max : See! My last smoke. It's bad for the baby.
Alex : That's you, Max. A regular boy scout.
-Max waves at Alex from behind-
Max : See you, Alex.
Alex : Still on for poker Thursday night, right?
Max : Like taking candy from a baby.

-View of a house-
Max's Thoughts : Life was good. The sun setting on a sweet summer's day,
the smell of freshly mowed lawns, the sounds of children playing. A
house across the river, on the Jersey-side. A beautiful wife and a baby
girl. The American dream come true.
-Max is opening a door-
Max : Honey, I'm home!
Max's Thoughts: But dreams have a nasty habit of going bad when you're
not looking.

-View of a living room-
Max's Thoughts : The sun went down with practiced bravado. Twilight
crawled across the sky, laden with foreboding. I didn't like the way
the show started. But they had give me the best seat in the house.
Front row center.

-View of a V with a syringe on the wall and Max looking at it-
Max's Thoughts : Something ugly had been tattooed on the wall, a map of
things to come. It was a poison syringe, a magic tag full of diabolical
meanings.

-Max is using the telephone-
Max : Listen! Someone's broken into my house. Call 911.
??? : Is this the Payne residence?
Max : Yes, someone's broken into my house, they are still here, you
have to -.
??? : Good. I am afraid I cannot help you.
-View of Max's face with the phone. Beeping noises-
Max : Who is this? 
-Another view with Max on the phone-
Max : Hello?

-Max holds his dead wife-
Max : NOOOOOOOOOO!!

-view of a car-
Max's Thoughts : That was three years ago. Everything ripped apart in
a New York minute.
-view of some bright buildings-
Max's Thoughts : The killer junkies had been high on a previously
unknown designer drug: Valkyr, V.
-Another view of bright buildings-
Max's Thoughts: After the funeral, I told Alex I would be transferring
to the DEA.

-Max stares-
Max's Thoughts : It took us three long years to get a break in the
Valkyr-case. Then, finally, two months ago, a dime-dropper tipped us
off that Jack Lupino, a mob-boss in the Punchinello crime family, was
trafficking. I went undercover, infiltrated the worst mafia family in
New York.

==============
3.0 - Part 1
==============
Select new game.

=============================
3.1 - Roscoe Street Station
=============================
-View of outside. There's a sign that says "bar".
Max's Thoughts : I came in from the cold and the dark. Outside, the city
was a cruel monster.
-Max is using a phone while holding a cup-
Max's Thoughts : I'd been slowly working my way from small-time to the
big fish. Trying to get to the source of the drug. Alex and B.B were my
only contacts in the DEA, the only ones in this decrepit city who knew
I was down here.
-View of a telephone-
B.B : B.B. here... Something urgent has come up with Jack Lupino. You
need to meet with Alex immediately... at the Roscoe Street station.
Max's Thoughts : I hadn't had a face to face with Alex since I'd gone
undercover.

-Max is on a train in the subway-
Max's Thoughts : The feeling hit me like a point-blank shot straight in
the face. Something was not right about this. My Beretta stirred
nervously under my coat, but the train doors had already shut behind me,
and I was in for the ride. Next stop: Roscoe Street station, and Alex.

Max's Thoughts : The station was drenched in gloom. Alex was a ghost.
Nowhere to be seen. I'd have to look for him.

Practice moving around for one minute to get the feel of this game.
It is sort of confusing but you will get used to it. Move to the white
door you see in front of you. You are now in a hallway with blood. Now
keep moving north into the door in front of you. You are now in a room
with a dead policeman.

Max's Thoughts : Death was in the air at Roscoe Street. I'd have to find
Alex fast.

Open the green cabinet next to the dead cop for some M9 ammo. Now move
south and jump on the M9 ammo next to the lockers. Grab the painkillers
sticking out of a locker.

Max's Thoughts : The pills would ease the pain.

Move east to the door. Grab the painkillers on the sink. Go back to the
hallway with all the blood. Go through the door south of you. You will
encounter two enemies.

Thug 1 : Wasn't Jake supposed to take care of this?
Thug 2 : He's havin' too much fun with the cop up there. What's the
plan?
Thug 1 : Gun down anyone that gets off a train. Hey, who's that?

Quickly face east and shoot the brown tube. It's explodes when shot
at. The brown tube will move around and hits the thug closest to you. If
it doesn't then use the shootdodge and shoot him. With the M9, it
will take three shots. The other thug is next to the second pillar from
the white door. Use the shootdodge and kill him.

Max's Thoughts : A meet at a closed station? Something was off.

Grab the Eagles off of both dead bodies and head upstairs. Equip the
eagle because it is better than an M9. Better gun equals less bullets to
use. There are two enemies upstairs. The first enemy will head towards
you. With the eagle, it'll take two shots. From where you are, move
south and when you see him, use the shootdodge and shoot him twice. Go
south more. You should see two pictures with half a man's face. Stand
next to the one closest to the Subway Control Room door. There is a man
with a pump action shotgun which can take a third of your life.
Shootdodge south and shoot to the east towards the man. Take his pump
action shotgun. To the north the shotgun man's dead body is a control
panel. Press it.

Max's Thoughts : The security panel let out a mocking cackle. I'd need
the right code.

Equip the shotgun and go west towards the stairs. Immediately use
the shootdodge towards the thug south of you and kill him. Take his
pump action shotgun. Another thug will approach you from the south. He
also has a pump action shotgun. Shoot him and take his shotgun shells.
There is one more thug that is just standing still to the south-east.
Shoot him and take the pump action shotgun. Now go back to the stairs
but don't climb it. Instead move north into the door. You can visibly
see a thug north-east of you. From where you are, shoot him once with
the shotgun. Take his eagle ammo. Next to the lockers are some shotgun
shells and a pump action shotgun. Pick them up and go north-east into
the dark hall. When you are there, keep moving to the end.

Max's Thoughts : I had ended up in the middle of a big time crime
operation. The gate was locked. I'd have to find another way to get to
the tunnel.

Go south back into the previous room. Go south-west and go through the
white door. You are now in the room where you had killed 3 people. Move
all the way south till you see a yellow train. Stand next to the frontal
part of the yellow train.

Max's Thought : The power to the rail was off. I'd have to get it back
on to move the train.

From where you are, move north-east and enter the white door.

Security guard : No! Don't!

Immediately use shootdodge and shoot the thug to death.

Security guard : You saved me, man!
Max : What's going on here?
Security guard : A massacre! These armed thugs just appeared from
nowhere. We need to get help man! There's a phone in the control room if
we can get there and get in.

Get the Eagle from the thug's body. Get the eagle clip next to the
lockers, get the eagle on a locker, and open the green cabinet on the
north-eastern side of the room to get M9 ammo. Now exit this room and
begin following the security guard. You will not encounter any enemies
during the way. Remember that control panel? Go to it. The security
guard will type in his code. When the door opens, he will get shot once
and die. Afterwards, move to the control panel and press it. The door
to the Subway Central Room will open. Go through it. Nothing much in
this room. Equip the eagle and go north-east and through the door.
Immediately use the shootdodge towards the east. There are 3 thugs to
kill near you. Kill the one to the east, then the thug to the south, then
the last one. You can easily kill them all in one dodge. Just hold the A
hold till after the 6th shot is fired. Pick up the eagle clip, the eagle,
and the M9 ammo. Notice the music is not normal yet. There is one last
guy with 2 M9s. From where you are, he is on the southern part of the
room. Shootdodge south and shoot him twice with the eagle. Then pick up
the weapon he dropped. It's the dual M9! Now enter through the white
door on the southern part of the room. This is the control room. On the
North-western part of the room is a small cabinet with a bottle of
painkillers in it. Open up the cabinet and pick it up. Go to the eastern
part of the room. You should see that part of the control panel that is
different. Examine it to turn the power on. There is a monitor that is
black and white on the northern wall. Examine it to see the train.

-View of the yellow train-
Max's Thoughts : The train lit up like a christmas tree. The power was
back on.

Go back to the yellow train. You can see that the train really did light
up like a christmas tree. Examine it to get in it.

=================================
3.2 - Live from the Crime Scene
=================================
Max's Thoughts : The train had got me through, but the scum knew I was
coming. I was in the rat king's domain; they crawled around my fee like
rotting leaves in fall. But I had bigger rats to find. 

here are three thugs ahead. Move east and kill the thug behind the rock.
Pick up his eagle ammo. There are two more thugs above you standing on a
platform. You can kill them both with 2 shotgun shells. Use the
shootdodge and shoot the explosives next to the them and it will kill
one enemy and then fire again at the other enemy. On the same platform
with the two dead enemies, is a box. Inside it is some M9 ammo. To the
south, is a box with M9 ammo. Open it up with a lead pipe. Get
if needed. On the same platform with the two dead, there is a door. Go
through it.

-View of what seems to be an old ticket booth-
Max's Thoughts : The rusty door led to an abandoned part of the station,
closed off since the early 40's. Something bid was going down at Roscoe
street. Maybe that's why Alex had wanted to meet me here. Maybe not. One
way or the other, I was going to find out.

When you regain control, there is a thug to the west. Go behind the
boxes and shootdodge north while shooting to the west. Pick up the pump
action shotgun. Another thug is headed your way. He is big and dressed
in gray with an ingram. Shootdodge, kill him and pick up the ingram clip
on him. The last thug is all the way west. Before you go on, there are
four boxes each containing an M9 clip, M9 clip, shotgun shells and a
bottle of painkillers. Proceed all to the grey door that is all the way
west. There are no enemies in this room but there are three boxes that
contain an M9 clip, shotgun shells, and a bottle of painkillers. Proceed
all the way north-east through the door.

Thug 1 : Give me the detonator.
Thug 2 : What are ya talkin' about? I thought you had it!
Thug 1 : No numbnuts, you were supposed to have it!
Max's Thoughts : The door was welded shut, that's why they needed
explosives. It was also why I needed the detonator.

The thugs will proceed shooting at you, but you are safe for now. There
are three of them. Equip the shotgun. Move just sightly a little bit to
the east and move north. While you are moving north, use the shootdodge
and shoot north 3 times. The first bullet should hit the box, the second
bullet will kill a thug and the third bullet will kill another thug.
There is still one last thug. The moment you get back up, shootdodge
north again and kill the last thug. You should have taken a very small
amount of damage. It would be a waste to use a painkiller. Pick up the
stuff that the thugs have dropped. They are shotgun shells, eagle and
eagle clip. In this room, there are two boxes which contain, Eagle ammo,
and a bottle of painkillers. Now exit through the door on the
north-west. Immediately shootdodge north and kill the two enemies that
are to the north and north-west. The enemies have dropped eagle ammo and
shotgun shells. There are three boxes in this room which contain a
bottle of painkillers, M9 clip, and an eagle clip. Equip the shotgun and
go through the hole on the wall to the north. Run a little bit north
and shootdodge the moment you hear bullets being fired. While in bullet
time mode, shoot the enemy to the north and shoot the enemy to the
South-east. When you you get up, you can hear gunshots being fire.
Move east, shootdodge the moment you can see a part of him, and shoot
east to kill him. The enemies have dropped shotgun shells, eagle ammo
and the ingram. Go through the safe door on the north-eastern part of
the room. Immediately shootdodge to the east and kill the thug to the
north-west and north-east. The enemies have dropped an M4 and shotgun
shells. Move all the way to the north-eastern part of the room, press
the red buttons, and go through the door. Immediately use the regular
bullet time (the one where you have to stand still) and shoot the thug
to the east and the north. The last thug is headed towards you from the
east. When you see him, shootdodge towards the south and shoot him twice
with the pump action shotgun. The enemies have dropped shotgun shells,
m4 clip, and some eagle ammo. There is a black phone in the center of
room. Examine it.

-View of Max talking on the phone-
Max : We come to you now live from the crime scene.
Jim Bravura : Who is this?
Max : Right back at you.
Jim Bravura : This is deputy chief Jim Bravura from the NYPD. You are to
cease your criminal activities and surrender immediately.
-A closer view of Max talking on the phone-
Max : Sure thing, Jim. Me and the boys been talking, and everyone's real
sorry. They'll never do it again.
Jim Bravura : Who the hell is this?
-Max stares down-
Max's Thought's : Being placed at the scene of a bank robbery wouldn't
have tipped the odds in my favor.

The alarm sound is annoying. You may turn it off. Go to the the eastern
part of the room. You can see a greenish box. Destroy it and the alarm
will stop.

Max : Thanks

Go to the center of the room. You can see a little monitor that has a
green box and two red boxes in it. Press it. As you press it the green
box moves from left to right. Only one vault door can be opened at a
time. If the green box is in the middle, then go to Vault B which is on
the northern part of the room. Pick up the bottle of painkillers on the
table. Examine the papers on the table.

-Max looks at the table with Aesir Corporation bonds-
Max's Thoughts : The bank robbers had been after Aesir corporation bonds.
The Aesir success story had recently been on every channel, and on the
cover of every magazine.

Go back to the previous room. Go to the center and examine the control
panel in the center of the room. Press it once so that the green box
is all the way to the right of the monitor. Move east to Vault C. There
is a bottle of painkillers on the table. The detonators are also on the
table. They look like two grey sticks. Pick them up.

Max's Thoughts : The crooks had brought enough explosives to send lady
liberty into orbit. I took the detonators.

Go back to the previous room. Examine the control panel again until the
green box is all the way to the left. Go west towards the door. Go back
to the room where the thugs were complaining about where the detonators
were. Examine the door with all the wires on it. You will hear a beeping
noise. Move away from the door. A small blast will blow up the door. Go
through the hole on the wall.

Max : Alex! Am I glad to see you.
Alex : Max? Jesus, I nearly shot you! What the hell's going on? There are
more corpses here than at the city morgue!
Max : It's an armed robbery, a tunnel-job straight to Roscoe bank vault
through the old station wall. This is Lupino's gig.
Alex : This is Lupino's doing? Lupino's men? Really?
Max : You sure know how to pick a place. We should get outta here, right
now. The good guys are on their way, but I don't look so good right now.
Alex : You're right we gotta get out of here - if it's Lupino, then it's
 -
-Alex gets shot-
Max's Thoughts : He was dead. I could tell by the cold blind stare in
his eyes. My only contact with sanity these last 3 years was gone... So
was his killer...

Two enemies will start shooting at you. Shootdodge towards the
south-east and shoot towards the south-east. These thugs each take 2
shots to kill. The thugs have dropped an ingram clip and shotgun shells.
Go up the stairs to the east.

-Max walking up the stairs. Max stares-
Max's Thoughts : Alex had kept me relatively sane for the past three
years. Now I didn't know how I felt. Somehow he had stumbled upon
something big and ended up stepping on Jack Lupino's toes.

=========================
3.3 - Playing it Bogart
=========================
-Max stares-
Max's Thoughts : Lupino ran his racket of sex, drugs and contract
killings from a sleazy hotel and a slum block of tenements.
-View of a snow filled city-
Max's Thoughts : The NYPD was closing in. I could hear the sirens. Their
wail was a crescendo. Lupino thought he could get us by taking Alex out,
and leaving me to take the fall of it. All he had gotten was my
attention.
-View of sign that reads "Hotel"
Max's Thoughts : Lupino wasn't in his cheap hotel. Instead I ran into the
Finito brothers. My cover had been blown. The doors slammed shut behind
me. And then I was dodging bullets like raindrops.

Finito Brother 1 : Ladies an' gentlemen, it's the max-imum pain in the
butt.
Max : You're killing me. Did you make that up yourself or did you get a
wino to write it?
Finito brother 2 : No, but I could have got a junk squad plant to write
it, right Maxie?
Max's Thoughts : My cover was blown and the door was locked. Suddenly
I was dodging bullets like raindrops.

Quickly equip the ingram, shootdodge towards the north-west and shoot
the finito brother to the north-east and shoot the finito brother towards
the west. One shootdodge and an ingram are enough to kill both of them.
The enemies have dropped an eagle and a sawed off. There's a safe on the
north-western side of the room. Inside it is a bottle of painkillers.
Now go to the door on the south-eastern side of the room.

Max's Thoughts : There had to be a key to the door somewhere.

Go to the between the desk and the chairs in the middle of the room and
face north towards the letter.

Max's Thoughts : The letter on the desk caught my eye...

Examine the letter.

-Max looks at the letter-
Max's Thoughts : I had met Lupino only once. The gangster ran all his
rackets through his right-hand man, Vinnie Gognitti.
-Max is about to throw a dart-
Max's Thoughts : Gognitti was a high-strung whiner on the verge of
breaking apart like an overamped energizer bunny.
-A dart is on the forhead of a picture of Vinnie's head-
Max's Thoughts : He had the brains to run the business but he lacked the
balls, always falling short, taking his frustration out on under-aged
addicts and call girls.
-View of the letter and a view of Max looking at it-
Vinnie? : The V-deal goes down at yer hotel. Jack's exact words, quote:
"Vinne, you're in charge of this one", unquote. Rico Muerte's coming to
see it through. Anything goes wrong, an' everybody's gonna get dead. Goes
double for you. Treat this guy real good, anything he wants, you give
him. Don't screw this up or yer finito, Finitos.
-View of a building-
Max's Thoughts : A V-deal meant added security, locked doors, and lots
of nervous thugs with itchy trigger-fingers. I had seen nothing coming
in, but that didn't mean it hadn't been there.
-View of Max standing next to the letter-
Max's Thoughts : Rico Muerte was a regular Keyser Soze, a spook story
told to keep the apes in line.
-View of a door with the number "313"-
Max's Thoughts : 313, the Finitos had scribbed Muerte's room number on
the note's margin.

Back to the game.

Thug : Boss, you ok in there? Boss?

Three thugs will pop out of the previously locked doors. You should still
have your ingram equipped. Immediately shootdodge east and shoot one
ingram bullet for each of the thugs. The enemies have dropped 3 M9 ammos.
Go through the previously locked door. In this room, stand next to the
smaller door.

Max's Thoughts : This was going to be tough. The stairs were locked and
the life had been busted for a decade or more.

Head south to the next room. In this room is a red button on the
north-western side of the room. It activates the vibrating bed. On the
north-eastern side of the room is a radio. Examine it.

Reporter : In his press conference today, the mayor stated that Valkyr
represents a clear danger to New York, and called for drastic actions to
eliminate the problem. On today's top story, the Valkyr Crises worsens
with the murder of DEA special agent Alex Balder. Special agent Balder
had been shot repeatedly from a point-blank range. The gunman has been
identified as Max Payne.
Max's Thoughts : I had just gotten my 15 minutes of fame.


Go east and exit the room. A box of M9 ammo can be found on the northern
wall. Stand next to the door on the north-eastern side of the room.

Max's Thoughts : The door was locked; I had to find another way outside.

Shoot the windows on the eastern side of the room and walk through it.
You are outside behind the Hotel sign. Move all the way south and move
to the door. There are two enemies inside this room and an explodable
tank. Immediately shootdodge towards the west and shoot the two thugs
with your ingram. The thugs have dropped 2 M9 ammos. Move to the door
on the western wall of the room. There's a box on the southern side of
the room with one bottle of painkillers in it. On top of the box on the
south-western side of the room are some M9 ammo. Go back to the previous
room. Exit through the southern door.

TV : And now, an all new episode of Lords and Ladies brought to you in
part by Aesir corporation.
TV Person 1 : My lady, there is a matter of great importance I must
bring to your attention.
Tv Person 2 : My lord, there is?
Thug : Oh, lady Amelia... so tragic... will she ever find true love?
*sob*

Never knew thugs were sensitive. Enter the closest door near you. Door
not stairs. Immediately shootdodge towards the west and shoot the thug
twice with your ingram. The thug has dropped a pump action shotgun. You
can open the closet on the north-eastern side of the door for some
shotgun ammo. Exit the room through the southern door. Move east but
watch out for the thug watching the tv. Kill him. If you are shooting
bullets at him while he is behind the little wall then you can't kill
him that way. The moment you kill him, two more thugs will pop out of
the door at the end of the hallway. Kill them too. The thugs will have
dropped 3 M9 ammos. There's also some M9 ammo on the couch next to the
tv that the thug was watching. Go through the door at the end of the
hallway. Immediately shootdodge towards the south and shoot the two thugs
next to the vending machine. Enter through the door closest to the
vending machine. Immediately shootdodge to the north and kill the thug.
He has dropped Dual M9. Exit through the door on the north-eastern side
of the room. Immediately shootdodge to the north and kill the thug to
the north. The thug has dropped Dual M9. Exit through the door on the
north-western side of the hallway. Shootdodge west and kill the thug.
He has dropped some shotgun ammo. There's a tv in this room on the
northern side of the wall. Examine it.

Reporter : Tonight, the city's fight against the nightmare drug, Valkyr,
took a turn for the worst, as DEA special agent Alex Balder was found
brutally slain at the Roscoe street subway station. A suspect, Max Payne,
was seen leaving the site only moments after the shots had been fired he
is believed to be armed and extremely dangerous. And now the weather.
The worst winter storm in recorded history continues to pound the city.

Go to the north-eastern side of the room to the next room. In the
closet at the north-eastern side of the room are some M9 ammo. Stand
next to the dead man on the bed or jump on the bed.

Max's Thoughts : This party had been dead for a while. I wasn't sorry
I'd missed the show.

Go back to the previous room. From there, go back to the hallway.
Go through the brown door to the north-east of you. There should be
a red book on a table next to you. Examine it.

Max's Thoughts : A hooker had left her diary on the table. It detailed
how she had recorded her dealings with a certain elderly mark, and sold
them to a mystery hag. Call it a hunch, but it felt important.

There is a bottle of painkillers on the table to the east. Now there
is a closet on the north-eastern side of the room. Open it up to reveal
a secret door. Go through it. Stand next to the camera.

Max's Thoughts : The camera was pointed at the bed through a small hole
in the wall. Just the right place for recording any seedy action.

Now go through to door on to the north. Now exit through the door on
the north-eastern side of the room. Enter the closest door next to you.

Max's Thoughts : 313, I had found Muerte's room.

Enter the room. A shotgun on a chair is facing the door and has been
activated by you opening the door. Shootdodge out of the way or simply
walk north. Afterwards check the letter on the desk on the northern
side of the room.

-Max crumbles a piece of paper-
Muerte?: One of our trusted boys has a monkey the size of King Kong on
his back. We need your special skills for backup on a major deal.
Max : Collecting evidence had gotten old a few hundred bullets back. I
was already so far past the point-of-no-return I couldn't even remember
what it had looked like when I had passed it.

There are some shotgun shells on the same table with the letter you have
just read. On the bed on the north-eastern side of the room, there's a
briefcase with a sawed off shotgun in it. In the cabinet on the eastern
side of the room is a box of M9 ammo. To the southern side of the room
is a table with a bottle of painkillers and some shotgun ammo. Go back
to the previous room. Don't move. You can see that there's a thug
standing still to the north-west. Shootdodge north and kill the thug.
Enter the room on the north-eastern part of this room. Immediately
shootdodge east and kill the thug to the south of you. In the closet on
the eastern side of the room are some shotgun ammo. Go back to the
previous room. Inside the box to the west of you are some shotgun ammo.
Go to the room on the north-western side of this room. Immediately
shootdodge south and start shooting the thug. The thug has dropped
a box of shotgun shells. There's a medicine box with a bottle of
painkillers. There are two people that aren't shooting at you but are
holding guns. For the fun of it, equip your lead pipe, stand between
them, and fire. They both have dropped some M9 ammo. Go back to the
previous room.
 
SECRET - Secret Room
Go to the end of this hallway. It's a dead end. Shoot the brick wall
near the dead end. I went berserk and accidently found it. Go through it.
In this room are two bottles of painkillers in the closet in the
north-western side of the room, a sawed off on the floor, dual M9 inside
the box, and shotgun ammo with M9 inside the closet to the eastern side
of the room.

Go all the way to the other end of this hallway. A door will open and
three thugs will pop out one by one. You can easily escape through the
just opened door and not waste any bullets. But if you enjoy the killing
then be my guest. Or from where you are you can go back to the previous
room and come back and all the enemies will be in position waiting to
die. If you have done my enemies in position trick then shootdodge to the
south-west and kill all three thugs. They thugs have dropped 2 M9 clips,
and shotgun shells. Now go through the door the thugs have opened. Go in
the elevator. The elevator will begin to move. When it has stopped equip
the M4 and exit. Move a west till you see a thug. The moment you see a
thug, shootdodge towards the east and kill the two thugs to the west of
you and shoot the thug to the south-east of you. The thugs have dropped
2 M9 ammos and some shotgun shells. On the table are some shotgun shells
and some M9 ammo. There's a tv nearby to the east. Examine it.

Reporter : A winter storm warning is in effect in the whole tri-state
area as both freezing rain and heavy snowfall continue. Many roadways
are already closed, and people are advised to stay indoors, the severe
blizzard has ravaged New York for three days now with no end in sight.
Max's Thoughts : The snowbound city was on my side. Less chance of
innocent bystanders getting caught in the crossfire. 

Go to the northern side of the room. There's a box and a door close
together. In the box are dual M9. Go through the door. Immediately
shootdodge east and kill the thug that is about to pop up and shoot you.
Go to the next room. There's a dead man, a newspaper and a baseball bat.
Pick up the baseball bat and then stand next to the dead man

Max's Thoughts : A dead man tied to a chair lay on the boiler room floor.
The poor slob had been beaten to death with a baseball bat.

Go through the door on the north-western side of the room. Shootdodge
west and kill the two thugs. Go upstairs. Head north through the brown
door. Try and go through the door to the west of you.

Thug 1 : Gentlemen, let's do business. Liquid green for folding green, a
fair trade.

Equip the Pump Action and try to go through the door. Immediately
shootdodge west and accurately kill the three thugs.

Max's Thoughts : A lifetime ago this would have gone down as a narcotics
arrest.

The thugs have dropped a bottle of painkillers, and two shotgun shells.
Examine the closed briefcase on the table next to the glowing green
liquid.

Max's Thoughts : The green glow of Valkyr cylinders illuminated the dull
green of dirty money.

There are three cabinets in this room which contain Molotov, a bottle of
painkillers and some M9 ammo. You must be thinking that Molotovs are
awesome. Well they are cause they explode causing nearby enemies to die.
Just don't kill yourself using it. On the north-eastern side of a room
is a table with a big key on it. Pick up the key and exit this room.
There's a closet to the north of you with a bottle of painkillers. Go
all the way north and through the door. In this room there's a guy
waiting to jump out and shoot you with his shotgun. Walk a little bit
north and move east next to the wall. Shootdodge south and talk out the
thug. The thug has dropped some shotgun shells. There's a guy standing
still. Kill him for some M9 ammo. There's also a medicine cabinet in this
room with two bottles of painkillers. Exit the room and go east to the
next room. Equip your M4 and enter through the door.

-View of Rico-
Rico : Two mad dog killers, ready to murder each other. They step into
the next room, an' I'm thinkin', now they're gonna do it. But no! They
sit down in front of a TV an' solve their differences with a kung-fu
fightin' videogame.
-View of Rico and Candy-
Rico : I tell you, Candy. I was so depressed I strangled them both with
the videogame cables.
Candy : Oh Rico, you're so bad.
-Another view of Rico and Candy-
Rico : I am, ain't I?
Candy : Mmm-mmmm.
-Max holds a gun towards Rico and Candy-
Max : Rico Muerte. Big-tie hustler.
-View of Rico and Candy-
Rico : Who the hell?
Candy : It's that cop!
-Max is holding up a gun-
Max's Thoughts : Muerte went for his gun.

Max : That's a lovely story Rico, why not tell us another?
Rico : Max Payne, the King Kong Monkey himself! You want me? Come get me!

Rico will escape through a door. The moment you see a thug appear,
shootdodge east and start shooting non-stop towards the north-east. When
you get up, shootdodge south and kill candy. In my opinion Candy is
nothing. The thugs have dropped Dual Ingram, dual M9, and some shotgun
ammo. Equip your new weapon, the dual ingram. Go through the door Rico
went through. Shootdodge east and kill him. Rico has dropped some eagle
ammo. Move south till you see the a thug. When you see a thug, shootdodge
south and and kill the two thugs. They have dropped an ingram clip and
some shotgun ammo. Go through the door on the south-eastern side of the
room. There is a box of M9 ammo in the closet. There's a medicine cabinet
with a bottle of painkillers in it. Examine the switchboard.

Max's Thoughts : The antique switchboard was still in use. It wash't hard
to picture a fat pimp listening to his hookers talk dirty over the web
of party lines; The blood veins of New York. Right now, there was a
diffrent set of moans and groans going on.
Thug? : Boss... Gognitti... it's Max Payne... he came an' started cappin'
us... he killed... uuuhh -.
Gognitti? : What's the freaken' problem? Hello? Answer me! Hello?
God dammit!
Max Payne : Turn around, walk away, blow town. That would have been the
smart thing to do. Guess I wasn't that smart.

Go back through the previous room. Don't move. There's a red button next
to you. Push it. Doors have just opened. Go through the doors.
Immediately shootdodge south. First kill the thug to the north then kill
the other two thugs to the west. After you have killed them, three more
thugs will pop out one by one from the door to the southern side of the
room. There's a trick I figured out. Hide behind the pillar to the
south-eastern side of the room. Stand next to the pillar so that you are
between the eastern side of the pillar and the eastern wall. All the
thugs will pop out but will not shoot you because they can't see you.
Equip the dual ingram, shootdodge north, and start killing them. The
thugs have dropped an ingram clip, M9 ammo, and some shotgun ammo. Go
through the same door that the thugs popped out of.

=================================
3.4 - Fear That Gives Men Wings
=================================
-View of Max with the Hotel sign behind him-
Max's Thoughts : Turn around, walk away, blow town. That would have been
the smart thing to do.
-View of windows-
Max's Thoughts : Guess I wasn't that smart. Lupino's tenement buldings
were a seedy hangout for all kings of sleaze. A liquor store, a pawn
shop, a laundromat full of mobster bookies and loan sharks. The list went
on.
-View of Max holding his gun-
Max's Thought : The how and why of it was a mystery to me, but they knew
I was a cop. They knew I was coming, and they were going to get real
trigger-happy about it.
-A car explodes and goes KABOOM!!-
Max's Thoughts : I got to see Lupino's hangout all lit up. A bomb went
off, turning snow into liquid gold. A pillar of fire lifted the remains
of a car straight up into the air.
-View of two men in black Mercedes Benz-
Max's Thoughts : The flames were highlighted on the hood of a black
Mercedes Benz, as it coasted down the street, real slow. As if the driver
didn't have a worry in the world. I got a good look of the man riding
shotgun. It was Vladimir, the head of the local Russian mob, the fly in
Don Punchinello's soup.

When you start, don't move. To the east of you is a place called
"Pawnbroker". Enter it through the door. Immediately shootdodge east
and kill the two thugs. The thugs have dropped an eagle and eagle ammo.
You can see through the fence on the eastern side of the room that
there's a key on the table on the other side. The door on that same wall
will not open. Ignore this. Exit through the south-western side of this
room. Immediately shootdodge south and kill the one thug. The thug has
dropped an eagle. On the table full of weapons in the center are dual
ingram. Jump on the table to get it. Go back outside in the freezing
cold. Move south all the way. Then move east. Just around the corner
is a wall with a bunch of newspapers. Examine it.

Max's Thoughts : The headlines were a depressing read. Screaming bloody
murder while the storm screamed a duet with the approaching prowl. Car
sirens.

Move east. There a van and stairs leading to a basement. Open the back
door of the van. There's a sawed off inside. Now go downstairs. Go
through the brown door. Move north. There are two thugs to the west and
they will start shooting you the moment they see you. Shootdodge north
and kill them. They have dropped M9 ammo and eagle ammo. Go through the
door near their dead bodies. Immediately shootdodge north and kill the
thug. The thug has dropped an eagle. There's an ingram clip on the table.
Go back to the previous room. Move all the way west. Move north through
the door. The door is locked. It's a dead end. You must be thinking
"Where do I go now?" That's why I'm here. Move south. There are two
explosive tanks. Shoot the one in the middle. It will fly towards the
locked door and break it. To the north there are some painkillers on the
2nd shelf from the newly opened door. Go through the newly opened door.
There are two people standing around. Kill them both for the fun of it.
They have dropped dual M9. There are three boxes in this room which
contain an eagle, M9 clip, and dual M9. Go through the door on the
north-eastern side of this room. Immediately shootdodge east and kill
the two thugs. They have dropped an eagle and eagle ammo. On the
northern wall beneath the pipes is ingram ammo. Now go through the door
on the south-eastern side of this room. Immediately shootdodge south
and shoot only when the thug pops out from behind the boxes. The thug
has dropped some eagle ammo. The phone is ringing. Examine it.

Max's Thoughts : It could have been just a junkie in need of a fix, but
it turned out to be something more sinister.

Alfred : Am I speaking to Mr. Payne?
Max : Who wants to know?
Alfred : My Name is Alfred Woden. You must hurry. The police are on their
way. They know you are there.
Max : How? And what's it to you?
Alfred : I will contact you again. *Click*

Go through the southern door. Immediately shootdodge west and kill
the two thugs next to each other. They have dropped an eagle and dual
M9. There are two crazy people on the south-eastern side of this room.
No point in killing them because they don't drop anything. Go through
the door on the north-western side of this room. It's the room behind
the fence of the pawn shop. Get the key and go back to the previous
room. Exit through the door on the eastern side of this room. There's
one thug through molotovs at you. Shootdodge east between the two
boxes and kill him. The thug has dropped molotovs. Go upstairs. There's
one thug. Kill him. He has dropped dual M9. There are two boxes in this
room which contain dual M9 and grenades. You have a new weapon called
grenades. They travel farther than molotovs. Go through the eastern
door. You can kill him with the baseball bat or lead pipe by standing
next to him. He drops and eagle. Or if you want to see something funny
then kill him and try and get a view of the other thug on the other side.
Since he is stupid he will try and walk towards you. But on the way he 
will fall into the floor's hole. No bullets wasted. That thug drops a
bottle of painkillers. Now jump or shootdodge to the other side. Use
shootdodge because you travel farther. If you need M9 ammo then it's
behind the boxes on the southern wall. Now go to the next room through
the south-eastern door. Immediately shootdodge south and kill the two
thugs to the south. They have dropped a pump action shotgun and some
eagle ammo. Now go north and examine the brown door.

Thug : Hold on! I'll be out soon.

You will hear a toilet flush. Shootdodge and kill him. Go to where
the thug was. There's a medicine cabinet with one bottle of painkillers.
Go back to the previous room. There's an ingram clip on the eastern
corner of this room. Exit through the window on the eastern side of this
room. You are outside in the freezing cold again. Move south and walk

of painkillers, two ingram clips, and dual ingram on top of the washing
machine. Exit through the north-western door.

-Max kicks a door and it goes KRAKK!-
Max : Vinnie Gognitti, just the man I've been killing to see.
-Max holds a gun towards Vinnie-
Vinnie : Payne! Freakin' fed! I knew from day one there was something
screwy 'bout you. Waddya think yer doin'? Yet a freaken' cop, you ain't
got squat on us. You can't just come in here wavin' yer piece like it
meant somethin' -.
-Vinnie fires his gun and it goes BLAM!-
-Max dodges the bullet and shoots Vinnie with BLAM!-
Vinnie : Yyeeaargh! Oh my god, oh god, you shot me, aaahhh. Yer dead,
Payne! What the hell are you waitin' for, you apes? Kill 'im! Kill
'im!
Thug : With pleasure, boss.
Max's Thoughts : Gognitti bailed. I made like Chow Yun Fat.

Vinnie will run. Immediately shootdodge north and kill all three thugs.
They have dropped an eagle, Dual M9, and Dual ingrams. By the way,
if you are in serious "payne" then go to the previous room which should
have painkillers if you didn't use them. There's a letter on the table.
Examine it.

-Max picks up the letter, examines it, and poses-
Max's Thoughts : The letter was addressed to Don Punchinello, but
Vinnie had never had the nerve to finish it.
Vinnie : Jack's gone voodoo. Just the other night he shot Dino 'coz
he wanted to see what his brains looked like splattered on the wall.
He's a freakin' mad dog. We're runnin' out of men an' business fast.
Max's Thoughts : Gognitti had been living in mortal fear of his boss.
Jack Lupino was a psycho.
-View of Vinnie running on the pipes of the rooftops-
Max's Thoughts : Vinnie Gognitti was running scared. He could run, but
with a bullet in his stomach like a broken bottle of Tabasco, he was
quickly running out of time. He knew where his boss was, and I wanted
to square things up with Jack Lupino. Gognitti would be moving fast. I
don't know about angels, but it's fear that gives men wings.

Exit through the north-western door. You can see Vinnie running. Do not
shoot him. The bullets will "magically" go through him and it will be
a waste of bullets. Move south and jump out the window. You are back
outside. Move east, jump on the pipe and move east to the next area.
You should have seen Vinnie going inside a building through an open
window. Go through the open north-western window. Vinnie should have
opened a door. Enter through the eastern door. Shootdodge north and
kill the thug. The thug has dropped Dual M9. Just around the corner is
an ingram clip. Jump out the northern window. Move north to the next
area. When you see a thug, shootdodge towards his direction and kill
him. There are two thugs. They have dropped an eagle and eagle ammo.
Now jump on the north-eastern pipes and move east. Shootdodge east when
you see the thug to the east. Kill him. Now shootdodge south and kill
the thug to the south. Move a little bit south-east and as soon as you
see a thug shootdodge south-east and kill him. They thugs have dropped
Dual M9, Eagle, Eagle ammo. Go to the next area on the south-eastern
side of this area. Immediately shootdodge south and kill the thug. Move
a south and then turn east around the corner. Shootdodge east and kill
the thug. Move a more east and kill the thug over there. They have
dropped an Eagle, and some eagle ammo. Go through the eastern door
at the end of this path. Immediately shootdodge north and kill the
thug. He has dropped some Eagle ammo. There are some painkillers on
the shelf if you need. Enter the north-eastern door. Immediately
shootdodge north and kill the thug to the east. The thug has dropped
a sawed off. Follow Vinnie to the next area. You are outside. I have 8
painkillers and full health at this point. Equip any shotgun you have
or you can equip the quick killing dual ingrams. There are three thugs
below the stairs. Quickly jump off the edge to the west of the top
flight of stairs and land on halfway on top of the bottom stairs. From
there you shootdodge west and kill the closest thugs near you. From
doing this correctly you should have lost near to nothing in health.
There is still one more thug. Move east. When you see the last thug,
shootdodge east and kill him. The thugs have dropped a pump action,
dual M9, and some M9 ammo. Enter the next area through the
south-eastern side of the area. You'll see Vinnie running to a door.

Vinnie : Open the door! Open the freakin' door! Payne! I'll kill ya!
Lousa freakin' cop!

Immediately shootdodge and kill the two thugs near you. Watch out for
Vinnie. He can't really kill you because all he has is a weak pistol
which takes 8 shots to kill you. Plus he misses alot and is incredibly
weak. Shootdodge towards his direction and finish him.

-Max points a gun at Vinnie-
Max : Where's Lupino?
Vinnie : Screw you!
Max : Bad start, Vinnie.
-Max grabs Vinnie-
Vinnie : Aargh! Police brutality -.
Max : I rate pretty high on that.
Vinnie : You... you can't just hurt me in cold blood.
Max : Uh-uh. Just keep telling yourself that.
-Max grabs Vinnie with both hands-
Vinnie : Listen good, candy man. I'm not going to be anybody's fall
guy. I want to know where your boss is hiding.
-Max presses the gun on Vinnie's head and the gun goes KLIK!-
Vinnie : I'll tell you! I'll tell you, just don't hurt me no more!
-Max grabs Vinnie-
Vinnie : Lupino's at Ragna Rock! The nightclub! Book me, take me in,
haul me to the frakin' jail. Just don't hurt me.
-Max walks away-
Max : Your rights will be read at your funeral.

======================
3.5 - Empire of Evil
======================
-Max is standing around-
Max's Thoughts : Ragna Rock was as inviting as a headache, flickering
and flashing to a machine gun beat. The belly of the nightclub was a
gothic theme park that began with bondage games, and led to the nasty
stuff from there. As subtle with it's dark message as a cop killer
bullet through the heart. Like father, like son. Just like Jack
Lupino.

Stand still. A thug will come. When you see him, shootdodge north
and kill him. There's another thug to the north. When you see him,
shootdodge north and kill him. They have dropped some M9 ammo and a
bottle of painkillers. Enter the next area through the south-western
path. There's a cabinet with a pump action in it. Go back to the
previous room. Move to the next area through the south-eastern path.
Immediately shootdodge west and kill the thug. The thug has dropped
a bottle of painkillers. Activate the switch on the north wall. The
door has opened. Go through the door. Move north until you see a thug.
When you do, shootdodge north and kill both thugs. They have dropped
a bottle of painkillers. There's a red book on the table. Examine it.

Max's Thoughts : The book had never been a bestseller, it was entitled
The Age of Murder and Storm. The blurb on the back mentioned norse
mythos and ragnarok, the end of the viking world. I was beginning to
see what the nightclub and its owner were all about.

Go through the north-western door. Move east till you see the entire
body of a thug. When you do, shootdodge east and kill the thug to the
east, and both thugs to the north. The thugs have dropped some eagle
ammo and a bottle of painkillers. There's a bottle of painkillers in
the north-western corner behind the counter of this room. Go to the
next area through the north-eastern path. Immediately shootdodge east
and kill the northern thug. Move south till you see a thug. When you
see him, shootdodge and kill him. The thugs have dropped some M9 ammo
and a bottle of painkillers. Examine the bookshelf on the northern
wall.

Max's Thoughts : The room was stacked with light reading such as
Necronomicon, Witchcraft, and Paradise Lost. The only thing I could
take seriously was the thought of Lupino taking it seriously.

Examine the red book on the north-western table.

Max's Thoughts : Books with pentagramson their covers, lying between
stacks of horror videos and a couple of Ouija boards.

Exit south-west. Immediately shootdodge south and kill the thug.
The moment you get up and shootdodge in any direction. While in Mid-air
you should see a thug coming into the room from the northern exit. Kill
him. They have dropped some M9 ammo and a bottle of painkillers. Go
through the northern exit. Immediately shootdodge west but not north
and kill the thug. If you shootdodge north out of panic then you will
dive straight into a pit and die. The thug has dropped some shotgun
shells. Go upstairs to the next area. Immediately shootdodge west and
kill the thug. Go to the top of the stairs and through the doors. Exit
south-east. Run west till you see a thug. When you do, shootdodge west
and kill him. Move south and kill the thug there. Move east and kill
the thug there. They have dropped some M9 ammo, some shotgun shells,
and a bottle of painkillers. On the north-western corner is a medicine
cabinet with a bottle of painkillers. There's an ingram clip at the
eastern wall. In the western side of the room is this control panel.
Examine it. You will see that the red curtains have opened. Now go back
downstairs to the area with the red book about light reading. From here
exit south-east to the next area. Wait till you see two thugs. When you
see them, shootdodge, and kill both of them. They have dropped some
shotgun shells, and some M9 ammo. Exit east through the curtains.
Immediately shootdodge north and kill the eastern thug. Then the moment
you get up, shootdodge south-east and kill the south-eastern thug.
Here's something fun. There's a set of red drums you can play with.
It's pretty pointless. Exit north. Move south and go up the stairs.
On the point of where the stair changes direction, there's a thug. The
trick is he doesn't start shooting until you are directly on the the
point of where the stairs change direction. Just one step below that
point, go into bullet time mode and walk to that point and kill him.
The thug has dropped some M9 ammo. Go to the top of the stairs and walk
south. There's an ingram clip on the way. Exit south-east. Immediately
shootdodge west and kill the northern thug then the eastern thug. They
have dropped a bottle of painkillers.

Max's Thoughts : The backstage area led to Lupino's inner sanctum. This
was the rotten core of the big apple. Lupino lurked somewhere ahead,
like a spider in his web.

Examine the red book on the table in the center.

Max's Thoughts : Jack Lupino was crazy all right. He was after that old
Faustian deal - your soul for power and fortune, just sign onthe dotted
line with your blood. The table was scattered with notes of demented
arcane nonsense written in rusty blood, a mishmash list of demons,
devils and dark gods evoked.

Examine the couch on the northern wall.

Max's Thoughts : Punchinello has threatened Lupino in writing. The note
had been torn to pieces, bloody fingerprints all over them. ...Don't
want to think that one of my boys is not playing with a full deck.
Shape up Jack, we are running a business here. I'd hate to send the
trio to strong-arm you... The trio were the don's notorious henchmen,
but it was obvious that Lupino hadn't been intimidated by the threat.

Exit north-east. Move north till you see a thug. When you do,
shootdodge and kill him.

Lupino : The flesh of fallen angels! Come to me all! Astaroth,
Beelzebub, Asmodeus, Baphomet, Lucifer, Loki, Satan, Cthulhu, Lilith,
Hela! Blood to you all! Secrets, living under the skin of reality, I've
seen it, the corruption of flesh! WOOOOOOOOO! I am the wolf! I'm the
wolf!
Max's Thoughts : I was pretty sure I'd have to knock Jack off my
Christmas card list. He'd probably eat the envelope.

Go north to the end of this hallway. During the way you will pick up
some shotgun shells and an ingram clip. Exit north. This is where you
fight Lupino. On the south-eastern table is a bottle of painkillers. Do
not pick it up unless you are fighting Lupino. On the southern table
is an ingram clip and some shotgun shells. Equip your dual ingram and
go east all the way to the end of the red road. The curtain will open
with 3 thugs and Jack Lupino.

-View of Jack Lupino-
Max's Thoughts : I had known there'd have to be a catch in it
somewhere, and this one was the Empire State Building of catches.
Lupino was pumped up and dying to go 15 rounds with a mutant alligator.
And then he started this spooky monkey talk. Straight from a bad
dream... mine.
-Jack Lupino is talking-
Lupino : I have tasted the flesh of fallen angels.
-Jack Lupino's face up-close-
Lupino : I've tasted the Devil's green blood. It runs in my veins. I
have seen beyond the world of skin, the architecture of blood and bone
marrow. Death is coming!
-Jack Lupino points-
Lupino :She is coming, and hell follows with her! This is the twilight
winter. I am ready to be her son! He time is now, and all who stand in
her way must die!

Get ready. Shootdodge north and kill the closest northern thug, the
southern thug, north-eastern Jack Lupino and the final far north thug.
All can be killed within just ONE shootdodge.

-Max fires his gun multiple times and it goes BLAM!-
Max's Thoughts : When Lupino went down, I wanted to make real sure he'd
stay that way. V was a bad monster, turned them into freaking zombie
demons from outer space.
-Max points his gun-
??? : I think he's dead already.
Max : Huh? And then that's when it happened.
-View of woman with a gun-
??? : But dead or not, you've got the wrong guy.
Max's Thoughts : In stepped this knockout femme fatale, holding a gun
to my face. I returned the favor.

4.0 - Part 2

Part 2 is pretty easy. Just two levels for god sakes!

4.1 - Captain Baseball Bat Boy
================================
-Mona and Max are pointing their guns at each other-
Max : Lisa Punchinello?
Max's Thoughts : Lisa Punchinello was the don's wife.
Mona : Mona Sax, Lisa's evil twin.
Max : Your safety's off, evil twin. You might hurt someone with that gun
of yours.
Mona : Lisa's the damsel in distress, I'm the professional. I'd blow you
away without batting an eye.
Max : Sure, and you can check out my credentials splattered all over this
joint.
-Mona is pointing her gun at Max-
Mona : Jack couldn't have framed you, not the state he was in. We're
after the same slimebag. Angelo Punchinello's the one who murdered your
friends and framed you with it.
-Mona and Max are pointed their guns at each other-
Max : You know this for a fact?
Mona : I've got my sources
Max : I don't have a clue these days, I just shoot them as they come. Who
put a contract on the archfiend?
-View of Mona's face-
Mona : This one's mine. I hate the guts of that sadistic wife-beater.
-Mona and Max are pointing their guns at each other-
Mona : Why not pool our bullets for this one?
Max : I thought you'd never ask. My finger was starting to twitch.
Mona : How do you like your whiskey?
-Mona pours whiskey into Max's cup-
Max : I'm easy, as long as you don't try to slip me a Mickey.
-Mona and Max hold up their cups-
Mona : You're a real angel, Max.
Max's Thoughts : It was good stuff, tasted sweet as honey going down.
-Max is having a bad headache-
Mona : Nothing personal. Can't risk you going berserk and getting Lisa
killed.
Max : Uunhhh.
-View of a baby's crib-
Max's Thoughts : The nightmare was always the same. Violent shapes moving
in darkness, old and ugly. The killer's mad laughter was a riddle filled
with wicked innuendo. Somewhere, the baby was crying.
-A picture of Max and his wife together-
Max's Thoughts : The Payne family. Happiness captured in a Polaroid
moment.
-A picture of Max's Wife with a small amount of blood-
Max's Thoughts : I had thought it would last forever. Till death do us
part. I didn't want to think about it. As long as I didn't, it could
never happen.
-A picture of Max's Wife with more blood on it-
Max's Thoughts : But I had broken my own rule, the thought had already
slipped in. Fear was rusty needles poking at my brain Cold and scaly, it
slithered down my chest.
-View of Max-
Max's Thoughts : Michelle was working part-time in the District
Attorney's office. Her diary was open on today's entry, her handwriting
all pretty curves.
-View of a diary-
Michelle : An Army dossier found its way to my desk yesterday. Valhalla?
Isn't that a Norse myth? Something about Vikings? I tried to tell Max
about it but he was busy, that cute frown on his brow. Guess it's
nothing, just a mix-up at the courier service.
-View of Max-
Max's Thoughts : From now on I would always find time for her. It was a
hollow promise. Too little, too late.
-View of a man holding a baseball bat-
Max's Thoughts : I woke up in a bad dream. My head felt two sizes too
small for my brain.
-View of Frankie with a baseball bat-
Frankie : Max Payne, I envy your name.
Max's Thoughts : And the killer was smiling.
-View of Max's face-
Frankie : Pleased to meet you. I'm Frankie The Bat Niagara,
Max : Niagara as in you cry a lot?
Max's Thoughts : He had a baseball bat, and I was tied to a chair.
Pissing him off was the smart thing to do.
-Max is getting hit with a baseball bat and it goes KRAKK! KRUNCH!-
-View of Frankie looking at Max-
Frankie : Nothin' wrong with a little laugh now and then. Take me for
example. I love to watch cartoons. Cartoon violence's a fascinatin'
thing.
-Frankie wipes his head-
Frankie : Let's take a break. I need to take a leak and maybe grab a
cold one at the bar. Don't worry. I'll be back to finish this off. An'
then it's checkout time.
-View of Max-
Frankie : You play, you pay, you bastard.
Max's Thoughts : He swaggered out, and the door clanged shut behind him,
locks clicking into place.
-view of Max tied to a chair-
Max's Thoughts : Everyone makes mistakes. Mine hadn't been to crack jokes
about the goon with the bad, he'd have cracked my skull regardless. It
hadn't even been to trust a girl with a gun.
-Max breaks the chair and it goes KRAKK!-
Max's Thoughts : I had blindly gone after the first bad guy on my hit
list when I should have been aiming further up the ladder, at the head
of the Punchinello family. I couldn't bring myself to be pissed at Mona.
Guess I had a soft spot for a pretty face.
-Max breaks free-
Max's Thoughts : But when somebody decides to play baseball with your
head, you tend to get sore.

Max's Thoughts : All I had was Niagara's bat, sticky with my own blood.
Without a gun, I would be no match for Frankie's men, I'd have to play
hide-and-seek with them.

-View of a door blocked with yellow tape-
Max's Thoughts : The men in blue had come and gone. They had decorated
the place with chalk outlines and tied it together with yellow tape.
-View of Max-
Max's Thoughts : The cops who had stayed behind were dead. Frankie, his
boys, and I had the place all for ourselves.

Go through the south-western door.

Thug 1 : Just forget 'bout it!
Thug 2 : You shoulda heard her! She was a real scream when the boys
caught her tryin' to cap the don.
Thug 1 : Oh, that's friggin' bad ... to the trio?
Max's Thoughts : The mobster muscle on the phone was talking about Mona.
Punchinello's trio were nothing but bad news.
Thug 1 : That's even worse than what Frankie's doin' to that poor
bastard downstairs.
Max's Thoughts : More evidence that Punchinello didn't like me much.

You are still in front of the door you tried to go through. Go through
it. Immediately shootdodge west and kill the two thugs on your screen
and the thug all the way north-west. There's an ingram clip, a bottle of
painkillers and a radio on a table near the phone that the thug used.
Examine the radio.

Reporter : The fact remains that all the victims so far identified in
the Ragna Rock shooting have been known criminals, many of whom had
large doses of V in their blood. Reliable sources say that Max Payne was
also among those killed, although no body has been recovered at this
time.
Max's Thoughts : Reliable sources. That meant somebody thought the mafia
had me, and didn't want the cops snooping around anymore. Don Punchinello
had the power to be that reliable source, which was no news. But his news
was old news.

to his words, Frankie was there, having a beer.
-Frankie looks at Max-
Frankie : Jesus Christ! How the hell did ya get loose?
Max : Got bored waiting. Thought - what the hell, we could just as well
finish this here.

When the screen fades to black, immediately shootdodge east. During
shootdodge, kill the northern thug, then the north-eastern thug, then
start shooting south-east non-stop which should kill both Frankie and
the thug. Everyone can be killed with one shootdodge.

======================
4.2 - Angel of Death
======================
-Max looks at a black car-
Max's Thoughts : Vlad had seen my smoke signals. The Mercedes was
revving to go, almost drowning out the banshee wail of the sirens.
Vlad : You coming?
-Vlad looks at Max-
Vlad : We'll drop you off at the Punchinello manor.
-Max looks at Vlad-
Max : Sounds good to me.
Vlad : When this is over, look me up. I could use a professional like
you.
Max : I'll keep that in mind.
-View of a mansion-
Max's Thoughts : The night groaned with cold. The garden lights flickered
nervously. In their light the falling snow was dead white before the
darkness ate it up.
-Max hols a gun-
Max's Thoughts : I had heard the stories. The trio were mad dogs. They'd
have hung the heads of their enemies over the manor gates if the capo
had only let them. Punchinello wanted Payne. He'd see the pain.
-View of dead people-
Max's Thoughts : Someone had graciously left the backdoor open for me
and killed the guards. My money was on Mona.
-View of Max-
Max's Thoughts : I knew that the trio would be standing between me and
Punchinello. I had read their rap sheet, thick as phonebooks.
-Max kicks a door open and it goes KLIK!-
Max's Thoughts : No one would be walking out of here alive.

Max's Thoughts : Pilate Providence aka The Big Brother. Joe Deadpan
Salem. Vince Mugnaio. No one would be walking out of here alive.

painkillers next to the shelf. There's a box that contains an M9 clip.
Exit south-west. There are two boxes that contain shotgun shells and a
bottle of painkillers. Examine the dead guy on the south-west corner.

-View of a dead person on a table-

with a flair for the dramatic, someone who had let herself out of a
locked cell and past a couple of armed guards.
-View of Max-

was a good enough gambler to walk away while she was still winning.

Max's Thoughts : The word on Lisa Punchinello was that she was a bit of
a witch. The tarot cards on the kitchen table fit the picture.
-Max takes The Death card-
Max's Thoughts : They weren't my kind of cards, but I was willing to take
a crack at the hand Mrs. Punchinello had dealt. The first card was the
tower. Maybe that was supposed to be the the manor. It goes easy after
that. The Devil was the master of the house, and Death was me, coming for
him.

Equip the dual ingram and exit west. Immediately shootdodge west, shoot
west non-stop and kill Pilate and the two thugs. Possible with one
shootdodge.

Max's Thoughts : One down, two to go.

Go back to the previous room. Immediately shootdodge east and kill the
two thugs. Exit south-east. Immediately shootdodge south and kill the
north-eastern thug and the south-eastern thug. They have dropped an

towards him and throw one grenade at him. Exit south-west. Immediately
shootdodge east and kill the thug behind the table. There's a piano in
this room. Examine it to play it. Exit west. Immediately shootdodge west

Immediately shootdodge north and kill all three thugs. They have dropped
a grenade, some shotgun ammo and an ingram clip. Exit north-east.
Immediately shootdodge north and kill the southern thug then the northern
thug. There's a medicine cabinet with two bottles of painkillers. Exit
south-east. Move a little bit east and examine the dead body on the bed.

Max's Thoughts : It was too late for her. I couldn't tell whether it was
Mona or her sister. The body was a mess. Seeing her lying there got me
thinking about another woman's body on another bed, got me thinking about
a fallen cradle.

Move to the eastern wall. Next to the phone on the table are two bottles
of painkillers. Examine the phone.

Alfred : Max Payne?
Max : Talk to me.
Alfred : This is Woden. You've got company. An armed helicopter just
landed on the manor grounds. You must hurry. *click*
Max's Thoughts : The more the merrier.

Exit south-east. Immediately shootdodge south and kill both thugs. Exit
south-east. Immediately shootdodge south-east and kill the western thug,

boss.

action. There are two bottles of painkillers on the eastern wall. Exit
east.

-Max points a gun at Punchinello-
Punchinello : Outside my door... Hurry...

Punchinello : He's coming for me... You've gotta hurry... please!
Max's Thoughts : I could hear Punchinello on the phone, begging for help.
-Max points a gun-
Max's Thoughts : He should have been saying his goodbyes.

A black suited man will come in and kill Punchinello. Immediately
shootdodge east and kill him. Go back to the previous room.

-A woman and people in black suits point their guns at Max-
Max's Thoughts : I could tell when I was outgunned. It was time to take
another beating. The mystery witch was a real barracuda, trouble on
dagger-heels, a smoking assault rifle in her hand, and an army of killer
suits behind her.
-The woman is holding a gun-
??? : How sweet, I get to kill two birds with one stone.
-The woman is holding a syringe-
Max's Thoughts : Sooner or later it was going to catch up with you.
-View of the woman-
??? : Mr. Payne. It's time to show you the benefits of my brew. Be a good
boy now.
-View of Max-
Max's Thoughts : You'd find that lady luck was really a hooker, and you
were fresh out of cash.

==============
5.0 - Part 3
==============
Finally! The last five levels of Max Payne for GBA! Now you can finally
see the end. Watch out here. The enemies are damn though. Use shotguns,
M4s and other power weapons.

==================
5.1 - Cold Steel
==================
-The mystery woman is surrounded by killer suits with guns pointed at
Max-
??? : Gentlemen, we are done here. Take me to Cold Steel.
-Max sees a bunch of green dots-
Max's Thoughts : She had just given me an O.D. of Valkyr. I could feel
green fire eating my brains. They turned to steam. They did a fade on me.
I had never had a chance.
-Everything is twisted into a green spiral-
Max's Thoughts : The witch had got me just as sure as if she'd put a gun
to my head and pulled the trigger.
-view of Max and his dead wife all in green-
Max's Thoughts : The shadows rushed me, bruised mug-shot faces hungry
for revenge. They knew my weak spots and closed in for the kill. The
floor turned into a vortex of green blood. I fell.
-Max hugs his wife-
Max's Wife : Max, something happened at the office today. A strange memo,
something about Vikings.
-Max hugs his wife and another Max looks upon them-
Max : Honey, I've got to run. You can tell me all about it
this evening.
Max's Wife : Have a nice day, darling.
Max's Thoughts : The bullet holes were rubies on her chest, blood glowing
on her ivory skin. She was so beautiful. The killer was smiling.
Lupino : The flesh of fallen angels.
-Max blinks his eyes multiple times-
Max's Thoughts : Slowly the green nightmare faded, leaving dark stains on
my soul that would never come off. I felt like flatlining. I was all
shook up.
-Max is lying on the ground next to a puddle of puke-
Max's Thoughts : I woke up in a cold sweat, sick and tired to the bone,
lying in a puddle of my own puke.
-Max gets up-
Max's Thoughts : The had had said take me to Cold Steel before it had all
gone crazy. It was a clue. The only one I had.
-View of an old factory-
Max's Thoughts : It took me forever to crawl back to my feet and hit the
road, but when I did, I drove straight to Cold Steel foundry outside the
city. There was a whole lot of action around the place for a freezing
winter night, trucks coming and going, men running.
-View of Max-
Max's Thoughts : I had the drop on the mystery witch, she thought I was
dead. I was on her blindside. I was going in...

Max's Thoughts : The bad trip had put me in a crazy mood, adrenaline
pumping through my aching veins. A half-abandoned industrial area in the
middle of nowhere. The factory was a perfect front for any number of
illegal activities. In the belly of the plant, molten metal boiled and
bubbled, like a witch's brew. Staggering on the mill roof in ice and
snow and wild wind, I was a ninja, my kung fu was strong. I wasn't
kidding anybody. At best I was superman on kryptonite about to fall
through a skylight.

When you begin, you should see a black box with a red laser coming out of
it. I'll call it a laser bomb because I don't really know what it is
called. You can either shoot at in from a far distance or you can jump
over it. I recommend shooting at it from a distance. This thing can take
away about half your life. Stand on the southern wall and walk into the
laser. The laser bomb will explode but it will not hurt you. There's a
box in this room which contains an M9 clip. Exit south-east. Immediately
shootdodge north-east and kill the eastern thug. Don't go down the stairs

killer storm; The worst in the cirt's history. Such a heavy snowfall that
vehicles are completely buried in snow.... The forecast shows that this
severe weather is expected to continue for at least another six hours..

Thug : ...Perimeter breached. The facility has been compromised. Initiate
operation dead eyes, repeat, initiate operation dead eyes. 
Max's Thoughts : The walky-talky military lingo could mean only one
thing. They were getting ready to destroy the evidence and vanish into
the night. I was so close. The hidden truths were just around the corner.

the papers on the south-western desk.

-Max looks at the papers-
Max's Thoughts : The mercenaries were running a tight operation,
paperwork and all.
-Max looks at the papers-
Thug : 'Merchandise missing again. A chemist had tried to smuggle it out
for his own private party. Locked him up in cell B7 in D-6's old test
facility to wait for proper processing.'
Max's Thoughts : I was close enough to hear the secrets just beyond the
next doorway.

The cabinet here contains some shotgun shells and a shotgun. There's also
a medicine cabinet which contains two bottles of painkillers. Go back to
the previous room. Immediately shootdodge west and kill the western thug
then the eastern thug. They have dropped an ingram clip and some shotgun
ammo. Exit west. Immediately shootdodge north and kill the northern thug.
The boxes in this room contain an M4 clip and a bottle of painkillers.
Exit north. There's a medicine cabinet in this room which has two bottles
of painkillers. In this room, there are two laser bombs. You can jump over
them or you can set one off by touching the south-western corner of the
room. This sets off both bombs and causes a pipe to break. Fire will
come out of the pipe. To take out the fire, examine the wheel on the
north-east corner of the room. Exit north-west. Immediately shootdodge
west and kill the thug. Exit west. The box in this room contains a
bottle of painkillers. You can see three laser bombs. Do not attempt to
jump over them. Shoot the southern bomb from a distance. This will set off
the bomb and the other bombs. All the pipes will break and fire will come
out of them. The fire will not burn non-stop. The fires will burn, stop,
burn and stop. Sometimes the fire burns for a long time and then stops for
like half a second and then burns again. That half a second is not enough
for you to go through the fire so watch out for this. When the fire stops,
just wait for a second and see if you can go through. Between the first
and the second fires is an opening to the west. There's a shelf that
contains two bottles of painkillers and some shotgun ammo. The cabinet
contains a grenade and an M9 clip. Get past the second and third fire and
exit north-east. Immediately shootdodge east and then kill the eastern
thug. Exit east. There's a fire in this room that does not stop. There's
a box in this room which contains a bottle of painkillers. Exit
south-east. The boxes in this room contain an M9 clip and some shotgun
ammo. There are three busted pipes with fires coming out of them.
Remember to wait for a second after the fire stops to see if it's safe.
After you have passed all three fires, there's a bottle of painkillers and
a wheel. Examine the wheel. You can see that all the fires in the room you
are in have gone out. You can also see that the fire blocking the door in
the previous room is out. Go back to the previous room. Exit north.
Immediately shootdodge north and kill both northern thugs. Shoot the
explosive tank next to the door being blocked. There's a secret in this
room. Look west. Just beyond the railing is this path you can walk on.
Jump over the railing and walk west then north and then jump north over
the railing. In this area is dual ingram, a grenade, an ingram clip, and a
bottle of painkillers. Exit north-east. There's a box in this room which
contains a bottle of painkillers. Exit south-east. Immediately shootdodge
east and kill the eastern thug. Examine the south-eastern computer.

Max's Thoughts : The monitor showed me the way. An elevator titled 'D-6'
on one of the screens. Somewhere onwards, in the core of the plant.

The northern shelf has an ingram clip, an M9 clip, and a grenade. The
medicine cabinet contains two bottles of painkillers. The boxes contain
an ingram clip and dual ingram. Go back to the previous room. Immediately
shootdodge north and then kill both northern thugs. They have dropped
an M4 clip. Exit north. Quickly move a little bit south, shootdodge east,
and then kill the thug. Move north along the eastern wall and then
shootdodge north and kill the thug above the stairs. Activate the
computer above the stairs. The south-eastern door will be broken open.
There are boxes in this room which contain an ingram clip and a bottle
of painkillers. Exit south-east. Stop! Fires will come out of two pipes.
Get past both of the and exit east. Immediately shootdodge north and
kill both thugs. There is a box in this room which contains shotgun ammo.
Examine the switch and exit north. There are boxes in this room which
contain an ingram clip and a grenade. Go up the stairs, shootdodge north,
and kill the thug. Press the switch next to the elevator. The elevator
door will open and two thugs will pop out. You can't really shoot them
till they are standing still. So when they appear for like a second,
shootdodge in any direction and kill them both. Enter into the elevator.

5.2 - Deep Six
================
Max's Thoughts : There was an old army bunker under the steel mill.

In the south-east corner of the room is a bottle of painkillers and a
grenade. The northern door won't open until you stand next to the switch
next to the door. The switch has to be green. Exit north.

Thug 1 : You can't do this! My men are still inside!
Thug 2 : Do you know why this is called operation dead eyes?
Thug 3 : Let's do it.
Voice : Attention all personnel. The self-destruction sequence has been
initiated. Evacuate the complex immediately. Repeat. The self-destruction
sequence has been initiated. Proceed to the nearest exit immediately.

Immediately shootdodge north and kill both thugs. Stand on the valhalla
logo and examine it.

-Max looks at the Valhalla logo-
Max's Thoughts : There was an old army bunker under the steel mill. I knew
the military plaque on the floor.
-Bird's eye view of Max and the logo-
Max's Thoughts : I had seen a thousand variations of the insignia on
crumbling brick walls everywhere in the city, the sword replaced by a
syringe.
-Max looks down-
Max's Thoughts : Project Valhalla. V for Valkyr. V for Valhalla. All of a
sudden it read like a crackpot conspiracy theory.

The thugs have dropped some M9 ammo. Exit east through.

Thug 1 : Bastards, they've sold us out. We're expendable.
Thug 2 : Let's get the hell out of here, the place's gonna blow!

There's an explosive tank right next to the boxes under the thugs. The
explosive tank is barely visible. Stand on the southern wall and shoot
the explosive tank. It will fly and kill one guy. Now shootdodge north
and kill the remaining two thugs. The thugs have dropped a bottle of
painkillers, an M4, and an M4 clip. On the eastern wall is a space you
can walk in. If you keep walking along the space you will pick up
some M4 ammo and a bottle of painkillers. Exit north. Immediately
shootdodge north and kill the western thug. The thug has dropped an M4.
Exit west. Immediately shootdodge west, kill the northern thug then
shoot the explosive tank to the west. If the explosion doesn't kill the
thug just shoot at him. They have dropped a bottle of painkillers and an
M4 clip. Exit north. Examine the the computer in the middle of the room.

Max's Thoughts : Like everything else in the Valkyr case, the door-code
was a mystery to me.

Exit south-west. Exit north. Try to exit west.

Max's Thoughts : The security door stood closed to me, like the
mysteries of this case.

Remember this place. Look north. You can see two fires going on and off.
Get past those fires and examine the computer next to the dead guy.

Max's Thoughts : The chemist had been using the workstation when he died.
The half-life of the lab rat had ended on line, his password blinking on
the screen. 668 the neighbor of the beast.

Exit south-east. Exit east. Examine the computer again. Exit north-east.
You're now on an elevator. After the ride, exit the elevator. Exit
south-east. In this room, there are a bunch of cells. The only cell
which contains something is the cell to the west of the giant pillar with
the word "Block B" on it. That cell has an ingram clip. Stand next to the
south-eastern door.

Guy : Hey! Get me out of here! I'm innocent!
Max : Relax, I'm here to get us both out of here

Examine the keypad near the door.

Guy : Thanks. Thought I was going to die in here for sure...

The guy will run off. Follow him. Exit east. Immediately shootdodge east
and kill both eastern thugs. The thugs have dropped a bottle of
painkillers and some M4 ammo. There's a shelf in this room that holds a
bottle of painkillers and some M4 ammo. Examine the dead guy.

Max's Thoughts : He had thought right, he'd died in here after all. I'd
use his death to save my life though. I took his keycard.

Exit east. Exit north-west. You're back on an elevator. You'll
automatically get off. Exit west. You're in a room with a bunch of cells
again. The north-eastern cell contains a bottle of painkillers and the
western cell contains an M4. Exit north. Exit north-west. You're back on
an elevator. When you're out of the elevator, exit south-west. Exit
north. Exit west. There are fires coming down from the pipes on the
ceiling. Get past the first one, go around the second on and go past the
third one and exit north. You're on an elevator again. Get out of the
elevator and exit south-east. There's about four laser bombs in this room.
Shoot at one from a distance and it'll explode causing everything else to
explode. On the south-east corner of the room is a blinking computer.
Examine it.

-Max looks at the computer-
??? : Top secret. Project Valhalla. U.S. Army. Yggdrasil Network.
Valhalla: the otherworldly place in Norse mythology where the bravest
heroes spent their afterlife feasting and fighting forever, their wounds
miraculously healed night after night.
-View of the computer-
??? : Valkyr: the maidens who chose the most courageous Viking warriors
and carried them to Valhalla. 1991. The research objective is to create
a chemical substance to enhance the stamina and morale of infantry troops.
-Max looks at the computer-
??? : 1995. Results unsatisfactory. Project cancelled.
Max's Thoughts : Someone had decided to continue the sick experiment
unauthorized.
-Max looks at the computer-
Max's Thoughts : Just when you thought you had reached the deepest depths
of horror, it suddenly got worse.
-View of the computer-
Max's Thoughts : How to turn off that small voice inside your head that
started to whisper that you should be glad, that now, if not before, your
revenge was justifiable on any conceivable moral scale?
-The monitor of the computer reflects on Max's face-
Max's Thoughts : That small voice proved, beyond any doubt, that I was
damned.

Exit south-west. On an elevator again. Exit the elevator and examine the
dead guy near you.

Max's Thoughts : I took his keycard.

Exit south and watch out for the flames. Dodge all the flames but moving
along the western boxes and exit south. On an elevator again. Then in
slow-mo you see Max running out of the elevator and you see explosions
coming out of the elevator. He just narrowly escaped death.

-Max is blocking the fires coming out of the burning building-
Max's Thoughts : You piece together a jigsaw and the final picture is
you finishing that same puzzle. A mad, green-eyed killer standing behind
you. An urban legend come true.
-View of Max's face with fire burning behind him-
Max's Thoughts : The Project Valhalla test-subjects had been the mad
junkies who had murdered my loved ones. The rest was simple bodycount
math. It all pointed to her: Ms. Valkyr. The factory went up in a fiery
inferno behind me. All my leads were dead, turned to smoke and dust. I
had lost my way. I hadn't slept in a million years.

===================
5.3 - Power Games
===================
-View of a building-
Max's Thoughts : Woden was waiting for me on the steps of the old
building.
-Max stands next to Woden-
Woden : Mr. Payne. Let's go inside. The others are anxious to begin.
Max : The others?
-Max is standing next to Woden. Max is reaching for something in his coat-
Woden : Despite the general misconception, this building actually predates
the City Hall by two years, thus being the oldest municipal building still
in use here at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Max : No kidding.
Max's Thoughts : The old man played tour guide as he led me through a
dark, domed hall. The answers I was after loomed large ahead.
-Woden points-
Woden : Mr. Payne, I would like to introduce you to my colleagues in
what we call the Inner Circle.
-Max looks at Woden-
Max : You've been watching too much X-Files.
Woden : You have seen the files on Project Valhalla. We can fill the gaps,
provide you with the information missing from those files.
-Woden touches his glasses-
Woden : We were all involved in the early stages of the project during the
Gulf War.
Max : What's the catch?
Woden : We would very much like to blow this thing wide open but our hands
are tied.
-The woman (the one who said "Take me to cold steel")is holding a
cigarette and is towering over New York-
Woden : Her name is Nicole Horne. She was the key figure in Project
Valhalla. When the funding was discontinued, she simply refused to quit.
She knew exactly what she had in her hands. Nicole Horne is the president
of Aesir Corporation. She has more than half the city in her pocket.
-View of Woden-
Woden : This must be kept under wraps. If you try to go public with this,
we will deny any knowledge. We need you to take her out. Afterwards, we
can protect you. Make all the charges go away.
-Two killer suits stand next to a door-
Max's Thoughts : That was the cue for the killer suits to kick in the
doors and swarm inside. It was an impressive floor show, but I decided
to leave early anyways. It was only a one story fall - lucky me.

Wait till you see the enemies appear on your screen. When you see them,
shootdodge and kill them. There are two thugs. They drop an Eagle and
some shotgun ammo. Go down the north-eastern stairs. Quickly move a little
bit south, shootdodge south-west, and kill the southern thug. Shootdodge
south and kill the southern thug. The thugs have dropped an M4 and some
shotgun ammo. Exit south-east. Immediately shootdodge north-east and
kill both north-eastern thugs. There's one thug left. You can hide behind
a pillar and he will come to you and when he does you can kill him. The
thugs have dropped an ingram clip, some M4 ammo and an M4. Go up the
north-western stairs. Immediately shootdodge west and kill the western
thug. He has dropped some eagle ammo.

GLITCH - Suicidal Thug
When you enter the room, quickly walk north till you touch a wall.
The thug will start to throw grenades. The grenades will hit the ceiling
and it will damage the thug. The thug will throw grenades until he kills
himself.

Exit south-west. Immediately shootdodge north and kill both thugs. They
have dropped some shotgun ammo and some M4 ammo. There are two bottles of
painkillers and a sawed off on the table. Examine the bright monitor in
the north-east corner of the room.

Max's Thoughts : One of the monitors showed what was left of the Inner
Circle. On screen the so-called corpse of Alfred Woden stood up,
miraculously waking from his dirt nap, looking smug among his dead pals.
In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king. I didn't know how he'd
pulled it off, but it was a pretty slick way to get out of all his
promises. Most of what he had said fit too well to be a load of crap.

Exit north-west. Immediately shootdodge north and kill both northern
thugs. The thugs have dropped an eagle and some eagle ammo. 

SECRET - Secret Room
Thanks for the secret UnknownMercenary.
There's a secret in this room. Go to the southern most part of the room
and shoot the little electric box. A door in this room has just been
unlocked. Go through the eastern door above the door you have come here
through. In this room is an extra life and dual ingram.

Exit north-west.

LESSON - Stealth
Since we're here, I'll teach you about stealth. As you can see through
the wall, the enemy is looking a direction that prevents him from seeing
you. Try to stand next to his with a gun. You can see that you can't
because he'll start to shoot at you. Now try and sneak up to him with a
Baseball bat or a Lead Pipe. You can see that it is possible without him
going all crazy. Now switch your weapon to a gun. The enemy will now start
to shoot at you. So if you're going to sneak up to an enemy, use a
baseball bat or a lead pipe.

There's a medicine cabinet in the north-eastern part of the room which
contains a bottle of painkillers. Equip the baseball bat and kill the
thug that is standing around. Move all the way north, shootdodge west and
then kill the southern thug. The thugs have dropped 2 M4s. Exit
north-west. Immediately shootdodge south and kill both southern thugs.
Exit south-east. Examine the little box thing on the northern desk.

Max's Thoughts : A video tape lay on the desk along with a letter. Nicole
Horne had blackmailed the inner circle into silence. I remembered Candy
Dawn, taping her clients in action on the side. I took the tape. I had a
feeling that, when this was over, any collateral would come in handy.

Exit south-east. Immediately shootdodge east and kill both thugs. They
have dropped an eagle and some shotgun shells. Examine the papers on the
southern desk.

Max's Thoughts : Woden had left me a present. Woden had taken care of my
mission preps with military precision. The critical areas in the Aesir
Corporation Headquarters blueprints were circled in red. The president's
office was at the top of the building, right below her penthouse suite.
The elevators were controlled by a security computer, part of the main
frame located underground below the building.

SECRET - Secret Room
I found a secret in this room by being too reckless with the enemies.
Shoot the painting on the northern wall. The painting will fall down,
revealing a switch. Examine the switch. The eastern bookshelf has moved
revealing a hidden door. Go through the door. In this room there's an
extra life, a bottle of painkillers and a JACKHAMMER!!!

Exit south-west. You can see a bunch of thugs headed towards you.
Thankfully they will stop and say...

Thug : There's Payne, kill the bastard!

Move west along the center of the room until you see the thugs. When you
see a thug, shootdodge west and just shoot non-stop west. The thugs have
dropped dual ingram, M4 ammo, and an M4. Exit south-east. Immediately
shootdodge south-east and kill the closest thug. You can't shoot from
behind the desk for some reason. Move a little bit east, shootdodge east,
and then kill the last thug. The thugs have dropped an ingram clip and
some M4 ammo. Exit east.

Thug 1 : CIA, FBI You've seen one you've seen em all. Sure, good for a
practice run but this, workin' for her, this is the real thing.
Thug 2 : The money's astronomical, and best of all you get to kill any
scum bag that gets in your way. Licence to kill! Like James Bond!

In front of you is a key on the table. You don't need to kill the thugs
because they are just standing looking out the window. Use my "lesson of
stealth" on them. The thugs drop an ingram clip and an M4. Exit west.
Exit west again. Go all the the west and stand next to the glass doors.

=======================
5.4 - Nothing to Lose
=======================
-View of a bridge and a building-
Max's Thoughts : I took my time, cruising around the city in the snow.
There was no hurry, I knew what I had to do now. I took my time, thinking
about it, building up the rage. When I was ready, I parked the stolen
wheels at the front entrance of the Aesir Corporation headquarters. Got
out, got in, got cracking. I had a bullet with Nicole Horne's name on it.
She had ultra-high-tech security systems, enough mercenaries and weaponry
to start World War III. There was no fear.
-View of the inside front of the building-
Max's Thoughts : New York disappeared behind a veil of snow. I had
crossed the threshold. This was her domain: sleek and sexy and soulless,
all glass and steel. A place of color-coded security key cards, metal
detectors and surveillance systems. Colder than a walk-in fridge, cold as
a gun.

When you begin you can see there are two metal detectors. Before you go
in, equip the best weapon you have. The dual ingrams are good. You'll
have to fight six tough mercenaries. I still call them thugs. Go through
any metal detector.

Max's Thoughts : The elevator doors were sealed, I'd have to override the
security lockdown to reach the mainframe.

I made this map (my first map) because these enemies are like whoa. Of
course I didn't take any damage/

E = Enemy
D = Door 
L = After you kill all the "E" enemies. These "F" enemies will appear.

SECRET - Room of Boxes
With the M79 or grenades, hit the wall on my map that is marked "S".
The wall is described as a white wall thats like a fence. Walk through
the fence. Walk all the way east and look north. There's a computer.
Examine the computer. Go back to the lobby or the previous room. Elevator
"2" is now activated! Go in the elevator. This room is filled with
goodie boxes. There are boxes in this room which contain four bottles of
painkillers, two ingram clips, some shotgun ammo and an extra life. I
found it out while trying to kill two thugs with an M79 and accidently
hit this wall!

The enemies drop a bottle of painkillers. Exit north-east through "D"
door. You cannot go through the metal door in this room. Examine the
computer in this room.

Max's Thoughts : The switch lifted Level 1 security. I could reach the
mainframe. From there I'd be able to override the other locks and get to
her office.

Go back to the previous room. Exit south-east through "3" elevator. When
you get out of the elevator you can see a bunch of laser bombs set up.
Stand in the south-east corner of the room and shoot them. They will all
blow up and you won't take any damage. In the center of the room is a
grenade, a bottle of a painkillers, an extra life and a new weapon called
the M79. It shoots out grenades like bullets. And bullets just keep on
going till it hits something. Exit south-west. Behind the desk is one
thug. And there are two more thugs coming down the stairs. Kill the guy
behind the desk and wait for the two thugs to come down the stairs. The
thugs have dropped some M4 ammo. If you climb the stairs, there is a
bottle of painkillers. On the eastern wall is computer and above it is
a monitor saying Penthouse, security, presidental office, office floors,
lobby, and something that's too pixely to read. Shoot the computer to
break it.

Max's Thoughts : All Horne's locks were now off-line. All bets were off.
The elevator would take me all the way up.

Exit south-east. Get in the elevator. You're back in the lobby. Exit
through the newly opened up elevator "1".

-Max waits for the elevator PING!-
-Mona points a gun at Max-
Max : Mona. Looking good.
Mona : Max, we gotta stop meeting like this.
-Max gives a constipated look-
Nicole : It will be a cold day in hell before I'll let a narc cop stop
me. Ms. Sax, do your job.
-Mona and Max point guns at each other-
Mona : Relax, Max. You're a nice guy, I don't kill nice guys.
-Mona and Max are pointing guns at each other-
Max : You're not bad yourself.
-Mona smiles-
Mona : It was different when Horne wanted Punchinello dead, to cut her
ties to the Mafia. He deserved to die.
Max : The same goes with her, she's the bad guy here.
Max's Thoughts : Her sister was whispering to her in my favor. I knew the
appetites of ghosts intimately. They hungered for revenge.
-Max ducks and Mona shoots two bullets BLAM! BLAM!-
Mona : Max!
-Mona gets shot-
Max : No!
Max's Thoughts : A gunshot boomed and she fell down in slow-motion.
-Max holds his gun-
Max's Thoughts : She was a nice girl, not really a stone-cold killer, and
now she was stone-cold dead.
*Max then says something but I couldn't understand it. Please email.*
-View of an elevator-
Max's Thoughts : When the elevator came back down, Mona was gone. There
was a lot of blood, but no body.
-Max looks at the elevator-
Max's Thoughts : Something clicked for the final time.
-View of Max-
Max's Thoughts : My mind had never been so clear, as if somewhere high
above the storm clouds were already gone, cold stars blazing from the
black skies.

Immediately shootdodge south and shoot west towards two thugs. The thugs
have dropped some M4 ammo and some eagle ammo. Exit in elevator "1".
Nicole runs away. Move into the room a little bit and then shootdodge
south-west and kill the western thug and the southern thug. Examine the
computer on the western side of the room.

-View of computers-
Max's Thoughts : Next to the printer was a neat stack of expensive paper.
-Max points his gun at the computer-
Max's Thoughts : Hacking through Horne's computer would have unearthed
files of criminal plans, strategies for world domination, spy helicopter
reports, illegal wire tap recordings, internet porno, all of the above,
take your pick, I really didn't care anymore.
-Max shoots at the computer BLAM!-
Max's Thoughts : I had seen too much of it already.

Too much porn?! Insane! Exit south-east.

Thug 1 : I hate to be stereotyped. I'm not a cold-blooded killer. I'm a
nice guy. I love my wife, I have two boys I'm very proud of. You just got
to make the ends meet, right?
Thug 2 : Yeah man, I hear yah, I hear yah.
Thug 1 : It's Payne! Kill the bastard! Kill the bastard!

Immediately shootdodge south and kill both eastern thugs. Exit east.

Nicole : It's Payne! Kill the bastard! Kill the bastard!

Immediately shootdodge east and kill both thugs. They have dropped an M4
and some M4 ammo. A gate will open. Wait for enemies to come through the
gate. When you see both thugs, shootdodge north and kill both of them.
The thugs have dropped a bottle of painkillers. A door will open and two
thugs will pop out. Move towards them. When you see them, shootdodge and
kill both of them. They have dropped dual ingram and some eagle ammo.
Exit north-east. The screen will show two thugs shooting non-stop east.
From where you are, the enemies are west. But between you and the enemies
are four laser bombs. Shoot the one closest to you. That bomb will cause
the other bombs to explode and that will end up killing both thugs. The
thugs have dropped two bottles of painkillers. Exit north-west. In this
room there is a pump action shotgun and some shotgun ammo. Exit
south-west. You are now outside.

Walk south-east a little bit. You can see one laser bomb. Shoot it from
a distance. Now you have to walk on the edge of the building. Walk east
on it till you see a second laser bomb. Shoot it. Now jump over the
broken ledge and keep walking east. You should see a thug shooting at
you. Shoot him. Continue walking and jumping over broken ledges. You
will see another thug next to a laser bomb shooting at you. Shoot him
and then the laser bomb. Keep walking. When you reach the other side.
On the other side, exit north-west. Immediately shootdodge south and kill
the southern thug. He has dropped an ingram clip. Exit north-west.
Immediately shootdodge north and kill the northern thug. He has dropped
some shotgun ammo. On the stairs, there's a laser bomb. You can jump over
it or you can shoot at it from a distance. Go upstairs. Quickly walk a
little bit south so that you are on the second step of the stairs. When
you are on the second step, shootdodge south and then shoot the laser
bomb and the thug. Walk up to the top step of the stairs and look north.
There's a laser bomb and another thug. Go into bullet time mode and shoot
the laser bomb and shop bullet time. The thug is killed. Go all the way
upstairs. Immediately shootdodge north-west and kill both north-eastern
thugs. They have dropped an ingram clip and a bottle of painkillers.
Quickly hide behind the wall with the painting before the dead bodies
disappear. After their bodies magically disappear, you will see two more
thugs coming out of elevators. Wait for them to come to you. When a thug
comes near you, shootdodge west and kill both northern thugs. They have
dropped some eagle ammo. Since we're in this room, read the stuff below.

GLITCH - Ghost M79
Stand next to the wall with the painting near the stairs. Equip your
M79 and shoot. The grenades fired will magically ghost through the wall
and come out the other side.

Exit through the south-eastern door. Immediately shootdodge north, kill
the southern thug and then kill the northern thug. Wait for the last
thug to come to you. When you see him, shootdodge and kill him. The thugs
have dropped two bottles of painkillers. Two thugs have just entered the
room. Immediately shootdodge south and kill the first thug. Then
sootdodge south-east and kill the second thug. They have dropped 2 M9
clips. Exit east. Immediately shootdodge north, kill the eastern thug,
and then kill the northern thug. They have dropped a bottle of
painkillers and an ingram clip. Go all the way south and exit south-west.

-Max reloads his gun KLIK!-
Max's Thoughts : Valkyr had been meant to be a white-winged maiden that
would lift you to a warrior's heaven. But it had turned out to be a
one-way demon ride to hell. The devil was in the drug. I knew. I had met
him.
-Max and his wife look at each other in a picture KLIK!-
-Max holds his shotgun KLIK!-
Max's Thoughts : And now I was going to kill her. The queen of the
underworld who had tried to lift herself a bit closer to heaven with her
drug money.
-Nicole holds a radio with Max behind her-
Max's Thoughts : No begging, no bribes, she knew better - honor among
killers, 'we who are about to die'. Both of us knew how this would end.
In pain and suffering.
-View of Nicole's face-
Nicole : All this, because your wife stuck her nose into things that were
none of her business.
Max's Thoughts : The cops were coming to take me away. The sirens were
like a bad conscience I couldn't shake.
Nicole : It's ridiculous you have made it this far. You won't be alive
when they get here.

Hide on the northern side of the closest pillar next to you and look
west. When you see a thug coming from your west, shootdodge west and
kill him. Then shootdodge south and kill the southern thug. Shootdodge
south again and kill the eastern thug. Then shootdodge south again and
kill the south-eastern thug. The thugs have dropped two bottles of
painkillers, some eagle ammo and some M4 ammo. Examine the computer on
the southern table. A secret door will open. Go through the door. You
will see Nicole run.

==========================
5.5 - Pain and Suffering
==========================
Shortest level ever. It's more like quarter of a full level.

You will see Nicole run towards a door and then you see her getting into
a helicopter. 

Pilot : She's on board. We're outta here, as soon as the wind dies down.
Don't like the look of that mast.
Max's Thoughts : I couldn't get to Horne. But the radio-mast was
begging to go, the support chains were about to give.

You see the screen center on a cable.

Max's Thoughts : The cables were too thick for bullets. I'd have to find
their weak spot to cut them.
Pilot : Liftoff in 1 minute.

Immediately shootdodge south, kill the northern thug and then kill the
eastern thug. Shootdodge east and kill the eastern thug. The thugs have
dropped three grenades. You have one minute to complete this level or
Horne gets the last laugh.

There are four cables. They are on a higher level. Stand next to them,
face them, and throw grenades at them. When you hit a cable it should
make this weird hollow noise. It takes just three grenades to destroy one
cable. After you destroy all of them, the radio mast will fall on the
helicopter, the helicopter will explode, the platform holding the
helicopter will break and the burning helicopter will come crashing down.

-View of Max-
Max's Thoughts : And then it was all over. The storm seemed to lose its
frenzy. The ragged clouds gave way to the stars above.
-A helicopter blinds Max with its light-
Jim : Max Payne, this is Deputy Chief Jim Bravura from the NYPD. We've
got the building surrounded. Throw down your weapons and lie down with
your hands behind your head.
-Max smiles-
Max's Thoughts : A bit closer to heaven.
-Cops surround and point their guns at Max-
Max's Thoughs : The cops' voices were distant and muted.
Cop 1 : Freeze!
Cop 2 : NYPD!
Cop 3 : Hold it right there!
Max's Thoughts : My ghosts released me from their haunting. Down below,
New York City glittered like diamonds on black velvet.
-View of Jim Bravera-
-Max is getting arrested-
-Woden is standing in the crowd-
Jim : You gave us one hell of a ride. Take him down to central booking.
Cop : You heard the man.
Max's Thoughts : Woden was there, in the crowd, standing by the
sidelines. It wouldn't be over till the man with the patch would say so.
He'd say the right words. I knew he would. He'd better. Woden grinned
smugly, it was the grin of a winner.
-Max is in the back of a cop car-
Max's Thoughts : That made two of us.

Well Done! You have Completed

Max Payne

6.0 - Weapons
===============
A good amount of weapon info. If you need to know the location then just
search it in my guide. Press Ctrl + F to find.

Lead Pipe - No Ammo
It's a melee weapon you must use it close range. With the amount of
ammo this game gives you, you won't need it. I noticed that you can
sneak up to people more with this weapon. You cannot shootdodge with this
weapon but you can go into bullet time mode. For a lesson about stealth
look in "5.3 - Power Games".

Baseball Bat - No Ammo
This is a melee weapon. It is a stronger version that the lead pipe. I
noticed that you can sneak up to people with this weapon. You cannot
shootdodge with this weapon but you can go into bullet time mode. For a
lesson about stealth look in "5.3 - Power Games".

Eagle - Maximum Ammo 48
Stronger than an M9. Rate of fire seems same to M9.

Dual M9 - Maximum Ammo 162
Fires two bullets and is very rapid. It's weak against enemies in the
later levels.

M9 - Maximum Ammo 162
A regular pistol. Rate of fire seems same to the eagle.

Pump Action - Maximum Ammo 80
A very powerful weapon which takes one shot to kill an enemy that takes
2-3 M9 ammo.

Sawed Off - Maximum Ammo 80
More powerful and noticably faster than the pump action.

Jackhammer - Maximum Ammo 80
This weapon is hidden and can be found in the level "Power Games".
You can to activate the cheats which are in the options/extras. The most
powerful and fastest shotgun. Guaranteed to kill pretty much anything
with two shots. 

M4 - Maximum Ammo 150
Like all rifles, they have a fast rate of fire. This weapon is great for
killing multiple amounts of enemy during shootdodge.

Dual Ingram - Maximum Ammo 300
The fastest killing weapon in the game. Rate of fire is extremely fast
and can kill multiple amounts of enemies in seconds. Stronger than M4.

Ingram - Maximum Ammo 300
This is a good weapon with a fast rate of fire.

M79 - Maximum Ammo 20
It's shoots grenades farther than molotovs or hand thrown grenades. Check
the level "Nothing to Lose" in this guide for the location. You cannot
shootdodge with this weapon but you can go into bullet time mode.

Grenades - Maximum Ammo 20
It travels higher but not farther than molotovs. You cannot shootdodge
with this weapon but you can go into bullet time mode.

Molotov - Maximum Ammo 10
Explodes when it lands. It travels a short distance. You cannot
shootdodge with this weapon but you can go into bullet time mode.

==============
7.0 - Extras
==============
It's the useless but fun part of my FAQ.
 
An enemy shot me while I was on one side of the wall and he was on
the opposite side of the wall. The wall was higher than me I think.
The area before you fight Vinnie on the stairway. So be careful. Enemies
can shoot through walls!

There's this weird glitch. When you shoot out of any weapon, switch to
another, and fire that weapon, you get a weird effect. You get an extra
bullet fired! Like two grenades thrown.

Look in the "5.3 - Power Games" part of my guide for a lesson about
stealth with melee weapons.

Please shoot every piece of crap you see! A bookshelf, a wall, anything!
If you find a secret, then email me and I'll give you credit! I found
a breakable wall and a painting that explodes and hides a switch!

If you want to see a thug kill himself, then look in "5.3 - Power Games".

You can complete levels really fast by running through all the rooms with
super cop on.

Max can rotate in a full circle twice during shootdodge.

Thanks to UnknownMercenary for these secrets below. Even though I
already KNEW ALL THESE OBVIOUS SECRETS, it's still helpful.

In Live from the Crime Scene, smash the cabinet-like thing next to
Vault C to turn off the alarm. Max says "Thanks.

In Fear that gives men wings, there is a room with a big hole in it
with two guys. One on each side  of the hole. Sometimes the guy on the
other side of the hole will come after you and instead he'll fall to
his death.

In Empire of Evil, there's a room with a drumset which Max can use.

In Angel of Death, one of the mansion rooms has a piano that Max can 
use. Try playing the Max Payne theme song! :)

Complete Max Payne for Extras such as Dead on Arrival Mode (Hard mode),
New York Minute (Time Limit Mode), and cheats (Infinite ammo, all
weapons, and super cop). Extras are shown in the Main Menu.
- Super Cop (Cannot die but can take damage)
- Infinite ammo (Infinite ammo)
- All weapons (Every single weapon given in the game)

8.0 - Frequently Asked Questions
==================================
I thought about some questions that might be asked frequently.

Q : What's your favorite weapon?
A : Sawed off or Dual Ingram. I recommend it. But I like jackhammer the
most.

Q : What advice can you give me with shootdodge.
A : The moment you enter a room, immediately shootdodge in any direction
and start killing. Sometimes shootdodging in any direction might

Q : None of the enemies drop a Jackhammer. Does it even exist?
A : The only way to get it is by beating the game and activating the
cheats. If an enemy does drop it then let me know.

Q : Why is your guide so confusing?
A : I hope not that confusing. It's the game itself with it's look.

Q : Why do you type "move here and shoot there" constantly?
A : So you take minimal damage.

Q : What's with all the conversations in your guide? Trying to fill your
guide?
A : Of course! And you can find out if you have seen the conversation or
you just wanna refresh your memory.

Q : Why did you type a guide for this game?
A : I visited the boards to annoy! But then I got sad as to see that
this game had no guide. Not even one. Now it has two if this got
posted. Wasabi X and me.

Q: I really need help on this part but your guide does not help. What
should I do? Read another guide?
A : NO! DO NOT READ ANOTHER GUIDE! Well you may if you want to break
my heart. You can contact me on AIM and I will make a video of that level
and send it to you. You can also email me asking a simple question or a
complicated one. Don't try to confuse me with questions with "There was
a guy with a gun and another guy which turned out to be Spider-man and a
huge explosion can be heard and now I don't know what to do.". Please be
as specific as possible. Lets count the amount of emails I got asking for
help. One... two... thr... just two. I answered the first guy with a
simple text answer. For the second guy I sent him pictures of what to do.
So remember! If you need help, email me and I will send you pictures!
I'm also on the gamefaqs boards. I'll probably get banned on the boards
for something.

===================
9.0 - My Comments
===================
The first thing I saw when I played this game was the intro. I was
amazed. The power of that little Gameboy Advanced never ceases to
amaze me. The voices and the comics were like the ones in the
Playstation 2 version. When I played the game, I was confused with
the movement. I didn't care. I can get used to it and I did. After
I completed the game, I noticed that this game was 90% of what its
Playstation 2 version was. Anyways. In this game, they combined most of
the levels and put them together. And in some cases they removed some
levels. Such as the dream level with the crying baby and the long
hallways.

I don't have time to re-read my guide but I am confident that my guide
gives a basic idea what to do on the first part of Max Payne in good
detail. If you have any problems or see any problems then email me.

I hope I can add more things to this guide. I wish I had more time.

I hope to add...
-Maps (Ugh. Too little time although possible.)
-Secret Locations (I don't really have the time to shoot every piece of
crap in the game. So help this clown out.)
-Other Stuff (I don't know what.)
-More questions in the FAQs section (Questions? Email me!)
-Some re-reading to check everything (Ugh. Too much crap to read.)

Just remember people. A guide is never complete. If you wish to add
something interesting then email me. If it's crap or already added then
I'll just say "too bad".

BUY MAX PAYNE 1 or 2!
