You will find the walkthrough for the entire game in the sections below.


###############################################################################
                              (D-01) DANGER ROOM
###############################################################################

-------
Part 01
-------

Kill an enemy up ahead and slide down the hill, then fight 2 more and jump over
the wall.  Take out a pair of guards and one more by the next ledge, then slide
down the hills and kill 2 more enemies.  Jump up 2 ledges from the bottom and
jump right to reach a pair of guards, then slide down the hill and kill another
one.

Take the large medkit and attack a trio of guards above you, then slide down
the hills and take out the dog.  Grab the large energy up ahead and climb to
the top for more energy and a guard.  Drop down a level and go right as you
fight a pair of enemies, then go past the wall and hill.  Kill 2 enemies and 2
dogs on your way, then go right to finish this part of the stage.


------------------------
Boss: Virtual Sabretooth
------------------------

This boss runs at you and slashes 6 times before pausing.  You can jump up to a
higher ledge at either side for a breather and some health or energy.  Jump
right from the left ledge to collect some large energy.

You should slash twice whenever the boss pauses, then run and repeat this until
his pattern changes at about 75% health.

At this point the boss jumps towards you in between doing 4 slashes, and he can
also jump off the wall and do damage to you from your ledges.  Try not to get
caught in his 4 slashes, but keep up your attacks at any other time to finish
him quickly.


###############################################################################
                            (D-02) ALKALI ENTRANCE
###############################################################################

You can use Iceman and Colossus here if you want, simply hold "L" and use the
dpad to select them.

Jump from the slightly lower ledge to clear the gap, then kill a pair of dogs
and jump from the ice platform for some large energy.  Enter the building and
kill 2 more dogs, then drop down the shaft and head left.  Switch to Colossus
and use his super attack to destroy all of the ice in your way.  Take the super
energy and go back to the entrance for the building.

Jump right across the platforms and up the shaft, then duck and kill the guard.
Smash the debris with Colossus for some large energy, then jump across the
platforms for another guard and a large medkit.  Drop down and jump up the
platforms to your right.

Kill the guard and smash the debris, then jump up some more platforms to reach
the top of the shaft.  Attack a trio of guards up here and go right past the
debris to finish this part of the stage.


###############################################################################
                            (D-03) GAS-FILLED ROOM
###############################################################################

The room is filled with deadly gas, so quickly smash the debris on your right
and drop down the shaft.


###############################################################################
                              (D-04) WIRING SHAFT
###############################################################################

Attack the enemies if you want, then jump down through the platforms and ramps
below.  It's really not worth fighting the enemies, just keep dropping as fast
as you can.


###############################################################################
                          (D-05) MAINTENANCE TUNNEL 1
###############################################################################

Jump the gap and watch for fire appearing near the gas vents, then smash the
wall.  Go right past guards and dogs, then fight your way up the platforms.
Kill more enemies up ahead and climb up more platforms, then drop down the
other side and go past some gas.

Fight more enemies on your way up and jump down through the platforms on your
right.  Watch for gas, bombs, guards and dogs and take the upper route for a
large medkit.  Drop back down and take the lower route to reach the boss.


----------------
Boss: Juggernaut
----------------

The boss pounds away at the generators and throws debris at you.  Sometimes he
will backhand you as well.  Get in close and use crouching 1-2 attacks on him
at a time until he reaches 75% health.

Now you need to watch out for him jumping on you and then dashing towards the
wall.  Try to get 1-2 hits after he hits the wall [jump over him], and maybe
sneak in a hit after one of his jumps if you're fast enough.  Use the ledges
above for a rest and some items.

This is a great time to use your charge boost [press "R"] with ALL 3
characters to really deal damage to the boss.


###############################################################################
                          (D-06) MAINTENANCE TUNNEL 2
###############################################################################

Go past the flames and smash the guards and wall on the higher path, then drop
down the next shaft and kill some dogs.  Jump op the platform and smash the
wall if you want some large energy.  Follow the passage and take the lower
path, then kill the dog and smash the wall.

Go right and jump up the shaft before fighting your way right, then jump down a
shaft and attack some dogs.  Attack more guards and dogs while following the
passage, then fight some scientists.  Fight past more guards and scientists,
then go beyond the flames to reach the boss.


----------------------------
Boss: Half-Finished Sentinel
----------------------------

The boss swings his fist slowly and can be damaged there pretty easily.  When
he fires a red laser from the yellow spot on his chest, you should jump to the
floating platform and jump off as the laser gets near.  Attack the little
flying drones when they appear and grab the items around the room as needed.

I recommend using your charge boost to make the fight even easier to win.


###############################################################################
                             (D-07) ELEVATOR SHAFT
###############################################################################

You can now use Nightcrawler if you wish.

I used Wolverine and slashed upwards for the drones.  Fight them off along with
the guards and collect the items [switch characters as needed].  At the top the
elevator starts to fall, so kill the enemies and watch the walls to change
colour.  Once the walls are white as well as green, you can jump off the
elevator to finish the stage.


###############################################################################
                             (D-08) OFFICE AREA 1
###############################################################################

Kill the guards ahead of you and climb some stairs , then use Nightcrawler to
teleport through the wall on your left for a medkit.  Try to take the upper
route just ahead and teleport through the walls.  Take the high road again and
fight some guards, drones and a bot.

Fight more enemies and teleport for a medkit, then go left down some stairs and
drop down another level.  Fight a bigger bot to your right, then go on to the
next stage.


###############################################################################
                             (D-09) OFFICE AREA 2
###############################################################################

Punch through the walls with Colossus as you kill the enemies in your way.
Just keep heading right and keep Colossus alive to reach the next stage.


###############################################################################
                               (D-10) LAB AREA 1
###############################################################################

Attack or jump over the enemies before dropping down a floor, then jump up the
shaft and fight past more enemies.  Jump down the next shaft and go right to
the wall, then kill guards and drones as you go up the next shaft and right
some more.

Take the low route and kill some guards and a bot, then go past more enemies
and take the lower path once again.  Head right through some enemies and jump
up the platforms above, then kill a bot and take the lower path for easier
enemies.

Go down even lower for some items and jump out the other side, then go right
past some scientists and another bot.  Jump up the platforms and hug the left
wall as you fall down the next shaft.  Grab the large medkit and go right to
reach the boss.


----------
Boss: Pyro
----------

This boss has a spinning shield of fire that grows wider every so often before
returning to normal size.  The boss also shoots fireballs, but they're pretty
easily avoided.  Your best bet for the fight is to use Iceman and be sure to
use his charge boost to make things easier.

Once he's down to about 60% health, his fireballs grow larger and follow you
around.  This is a good chance to switch to another character and use their
charge boosts while the flames are farther away.

At about 30% health, the boss either uses the growing shield, or a new attack
where he summons a fire creature that leaps at you.  Attack between either move
or when he's creating the fire creature.  This should break his concentration
and force him to start with another move.


###############################################################################
                               (D-11) LAB AREA 2
###############################################################################

Fight left and rush through the water so you don't choke, then kill the bot
above.  Jump the gaps and fight another bot, then take the large medkit and go
down and left through the water.  Take the large medkit on your right when you
surface, then jump up the platforms on your left as you face a bot.

Drop through the platforms and keep left, then go through more water and take
another large medkit on your right.  Go left past more gaps and water, then
jump up the platforms and fight a bot.  Take the large medkit just ahead of you
and get past another bot, then follow the water left and up a shaft.

Take the large medkit and destroy a bot before dropping down, then go through
more water and past a group of bots.  Drop down the nearby shaft to finish the
stage.


###############################################################################
                                 (D-12) SEWER
###############################################################################

Go right past dogs, guards and bots until you reach a large medkit, then go
back left a little and look for a shaft leading down.  Jump down through the
platforms to enter this shaft and work your way right past bots, dogs and
guards as you go down a few more shafts.

Fall down two long shafts in a row and go right past enemies to reach another
shaft.  Go right past more enemies until you come to a bot, then fight it and
drop through the shaft below it.  Destroy the pair of bots and keep right to
find the boss.


---------
Boss: X23
---------

There are items at both ends of this room and the boss is pretty quick.  She
likes to use jump kicks and her claws at close range.  If she get to close then
she'll climb on you and land a few hits before jumping off.

Use your charge boosts and try to get her on one of the ledges on the far side
of the room while you stay on the ground.  Sometimes she pauses there and you
can get a few good hits.  Colossus's super attack works quite well in the same
spot, so use it too.


###############################################################################
                              (D-13) COMM. ROOM 1
###############################################################################

Head right and attack or jump over the enemies, then jump the gap and warp
through the wall.  Smash the debris for some items, then warp back and drop
down the shaft.  Fight left and jump down another shaft, then attack the bots
and drop down another shaft.

Kill the enemies on your right before dropping down a shaft, then fight right
to the wall and jump up the platforms.  Attack the scientists and kill the
enemies and drones on your right, then climb up more platforms and attack the
guards to your right.

Climb up more platforms and attack some bots and enemies on your right, then
jump up more platforms.  Go past a few more enemies and warp past the wall,
then keep right to find the boss.


----------------
Boss: Sabretooth
----------------

This boss runs at you and slashes 6 times before pausing.  You can get some
items at either end of the room [warp for the higher stuff].

You should slash twice whenever the boss pauses, then run and repeat this until
his pattern changes at about 75% health.

At this point the boss jumps towards you in between doing 4 slashes, and he can
also jump off the wall.  Try not to get caught in his 4 slashes, but keep up
your attacks at any other time and use your charge boosts to finish him
quickly.


###############################################################################
                              (D-14) COMM. ROOM 2
###############################################################################

Fight the enemies on your right and jump up the ledges before the bot, then
kill the guards on the way to the top of the shaft.  Go left if you want a
large medkit in the debris, then head right and warp through the wall.  Smash
the debris for some large energy, then warp back and jump up the platforms.

Warp left past the bots at the top and jump up all the platforms, then fight
the enemies on your right until you reach the boss.


--------------
Boss: Mystique
--------------

Attack the boss and watch as she morphs into either a previous boss, a basic
enemy or one of the x-men.  In her normal form you need to watch for a backhand
attack.  The boss can only be damaged in her normal form as well.  So you need
to attack her other forms then really let loose on that form.

Check the platforms around the room for other items and use your charge boosts
as needed, but try to save them for the boss's normal form.


###############################################################################
                               (D-15) STRONGHOLD
###############################################################################

Kill the enemies to your right and jump down the shaft, then fight some guards
and jump up the nearby platforms.  Go left past some bots and jump up more
platforms, then fight past more enemies and bots on your right.  Drop off the
ledge and work your way right to the wall, then warp through it.

Go right to a pit and carefully warp/jump past it, then take the large energy
and warp through the wall.  Jump up the shaft and go right past all the enemies
to another shaft, then hug the right wall as you fall to land on a ledge.  Go
right from here to reach the boss.


-------------
Boss: Stryker
-------------

This boss fires in 6-shot bursts before taking a few steps.  Check the
platforms for items and use your attacks and charge boosts between his shots.
Distant attacks like Iceman's work well, and Colossus's super attack works
really well with a charge boost.

Once the bot is destroyed you need to watch out for the boss's shots, they are
very powerful.  Try to jump them, get 1-2 hits in and force him to the edge of
the screen.  Here you can just keep hitting him with a fast character like
Wolverine.


###############################################################################
                      (D-16) SENTINEL CONSTRUCTION HANGAR
###############################################################################

Go right and jump up the pile of boxes, then jump left to some platforms.
Follow the platforms up and right to a ledge, then go right to some more boxes
and jump to the red platform just ahead.  Drop off the other side and attack
the enemies to your right until you see a large medkit below you.

Hug the left wall to grab it and head right past bots for a small medkit, then
drop down and head right before jumping up a shaft.  Go past the bot and take
the large medkit as you land on the light, then keep right past more bots and
fall down some more.

Keep right past bots and scientists, then use the boxes to reach the platforms
above.  Go past more bots and fall down, then go right to reach the boss.


------------------
Boss: Multiple Man
------------------

You will probably find that this is a pretty cruel section of the game to play,
but you just need to keep at it.


This fight involves you constantly running right and making sure that you don't
get caught at the left edge of the screen as it scrolls.  The boss runs away
and generates clones as he goes.  The clones either stand there punching, or
jump towards you.

You need to attack these clones to deal damage to the boss, but try not to slow
down too much while you do this.  I recommend using Wolverine to start, since
he heals.  Try to use jumping attacks instead of ground ones where possible,
since it's faster.  You can also use Nightcrawler's teleporting to make things
a bit easier, just be careful not to teleport against the stairs and lose time.


You can stop running once you're out into the snow, as the real battle starts.
You can grab the items in this area and attack the clones if you want, but try
to watch for the original where they're coming from.  Use your charge boosts if
you want and attack that guy to finish off the boss.


###############################################################################
                              (D-17) MASTER MOULD
###############################################################################

This is a tough fight because you have to beat the boss FOUR times.  You can
always wait far left with wolverine for extra health and get some health and
energy from defeated bots.


Go right past all the bots and gas until you reach a platform, then go farther
right if you need some medkits.  Jump up and use Colossus to get rid of the
debris on your right, then go up past the gas and bots and jump up the first
platform.  Go right if you need a token, then go left and up instead.

Go right past some bots and get rid of the debris, then go right and up past
some bots.  Destroy more debris left of you, then go up past more bots.  Smash
another chunk of debris and jump up the nearby platforms, then go left and warp
through a wall for some medkits.

Go back right and smash some debris before jumping up some platforms, then go
right if you need a token.  Go left to a hill and jump left from the top for
some items, then drop down for some medkits.  Go left down the ramps and right
at the bottom to start the boss fight.


------------------
Boss: Master Mould
------------------

Attack the bots when they get in the way and avoid the boss's triple shots.
Use your charge boosts while attacking the boss's eye.  Repeat this until the
boss's health is drained, then jump into his mouth and attack the large red
spot until its health is also depleted.

Beat up the boss and his red spot a second time and use the tokens to revive
any of your friends, then prepare for a new attack.  The boss shakes his mouth
up ad down before unleashing a huge laser on you.  So crouch when you see this
coming and attack afterwards.

Beat up the boss and his red spot a third time now and use those tokens if you
need them.  Attack the boss and his red spot for the fourth time now to finish
the fight, the stage and the game!


###############################################################################
                                   (E) TIPS
###############################################################################

Beat multiple enemies in a row to fill your charge meter faster.

You can have a maximum of 4 charge meters filled for each character.

Use Nightcrawler [once you have him] to warp past enemies in your way.  You can
also hold a direction before warping to move in that direction.


###############################################################################
                                (F) CHARACTERS
###############################################################################

---------
Wolverine
---------

Wolverine uses claws to fight and his health regenerates with time.  His super
attack is a 2-way slash.


------
Iceman
------

Iceman uses ice to attack and has a bit better range because of this.  His
super attack is a freeze blast.


--------
Colossus
--------

Colossus is a little slower to attack and can't jump as high, but his attacks
do more damage.  His super attack is a ground slam that can destroy some
objects as well.


------------
Nightcrawler
------------

Nightcrawler takes damage easier than the other characters, but he can also
teleport past enemies and some walls with his super attack.

###############################################################################

For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
the same idea.

I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
send money, so it's here for those people.


For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
excellent progress on a few FAQs.

If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.

My email address is fecalord (AT) gmail (DOT) com, and the paypal address is
listed below.


For those that want to contribute, you can use paypal at the following address:

Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
