    Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses - Gameboy Advance 
    
    
    In this game you play Genevieve out to rescue her sisters in the 
    Golden Pavilion.  They’ve been hidden by Rowena, and you have to 
    avoid her goons, and natural dangers, to reach them.  Each princess 
    (or group of princesses) will give you her dancing shoes when you 
    find them.  Each new pair of shoes creates a different move, which 
    you’ll need to advance in the game.
    
    Buttons
    
    A – jump/OK/scroll through speech bubbles
    B – Use a shoe-specific move/back
    R – Change shoes
    Arrow Pad – move left and right, even while jumping/press up to 
        go through doorways
    L and the Arrow Pad held together – lets you stay in one place while 
        looking around the scene (you can still be injured while using 
        this)
    Start – pauses the game, and offers the “Continue” or “Quit” options/
        scroll through the beginning text faster
    
    
    Game Mode
    
    New Game – if you’re just starting out, select this option.  
        You will get to choose between Easy Mode (unlimited lives) 
        and Normal Mode (three extra lives).  Lives are represented 
        by pink hearts in the screen’s top-left corner.
    Continues Game – you have to type in a password first to be able  
        to continue
    Password – Write down each password you reach so if you have to 
        stop the game, you can pick up where you left off.  If you use a 
        password to continue a game, you’ll start in your original dress.
        The passwords in this walkthrough may be different than the ones 
        you get.
    
    
    Mini-Games
    
    Throughout the game are three mini-games, each with two levels, 
    and a chance to earn an extra life capacity.  You can access them 
    for fun from the main menu even if you haven’t reached them in 
    the game, but there will only be one level and no chance at extra lives.  
    
    Butterfly Catch
    The object is to catch all the butterflies with your net.  In 
    the screen’s top right corner is a butterfly counter, which counts 
    down the number of butterflies left to catch.  Level 1 has 
    fourteen butterflies to catch, and Level 2 has sixteen.  Each 
    time you pass a shaking bush, even if you only jump by it, a 
    butterfly will fly out.  It will flutter back and forth slowly 
    upward, so if you don’t swipe it up quickly it will get out of 
    reach.  For best results, swipe twice in quick succession, especially 
    after a jump.  Once you pass a bush it will stop shaking.  You may 
    have to backtrack or jump on ledges to find all the bushes.
    
    Ribbon Race
    The object of this mini-game is to use the purple shoes to reach 
    the doorway at the top before time runs out.  As you ascend, the 
    screen will slowly move up with you.  It will start moving as soon 
    as you do.  If you’re at the bottom of the screen when it moves up, 
    you’ll “faint” and have to start over.  You can’t change out of 
    purple shoes here.  There are two levels, and the best advice is 
    to stay as high as you can.  Remember, you can jump onto gargoyle 
    heads on the castle walls as well as ledges.  You can still direct 
    Barbie even if you can’t see her.  There are no critters or 
    possessed objects in the mini-game.  There will be some backtracking 
    and close-calls, but that extra heart is worth it!
    
    Book Challenge
    The object of this mini-game is to reach the doorway before 
    time runs out.  The time counts down at the top right corner.  
    Each level starts at 1:45.  Use the B button to pick up the stack 
    of books already there.  When you pick up a stack, it shows up 
    under the timer.  You can only pick up one at a time, so you’ll 
    have to backtrack a lot between dropping off and picking up books.  
    
    Walkthrough
    
    New Game
    You can press Start to scroll through the beginning story faster.
    Walk right, then press A to scroll through speech bubbles.  Walk 
    right, and press Up to enter the doorway.  Walk right, and jump 
    right onto a ledge.  Watch out!  There are vases high above you 
    that will fall (on you) as you walk under them.  You’ll know them 
    by the “Whoa-whoa-whoa” they make before they fall.  Every danger 
    will be there again if you walk away and walk back.  Keep jumping 
    right until you get to the far ledge.  If you fall, go to the 
    center of the floor, where there’s a ledge even with you’re crown, 
    and jump straight up onto it.  Enter the doorway.
    
    Walk right up the stairs and meet your second bane: ants.  For 
    now you just have to avoid them, since their lines are too long 
    to jump over.  Wait on the stairs till they’re gone, then jump 
    onto the ledge on your left.  If you fall, the only way to get 
    back without getting hurt is to follow the ants back to the edge 
    of the stairs, then jump over them while they’re turning around 
    and their line is shorter.  Keep jumping right until you reach the 
    far ledge, and go through the doorway.
    
    Walk right, up the stairs (watch out for vases), and jump right 
    and up on the ledges until you reach the far ledge.  Walk right, 
    and jump up and right again to get to another far ledge.  You’ll 
    notice some ledges you can just fall off onto the next one.  If 
    you fall, walk left and try again.  Enter the doorway.
    
    Walk right all the way through the flower tiles on the floor.  
    At the end you’ll get your first password.  You’ll notice the 
    passwords are pictures instead of letters.  It doesn’t matter 
    what you call them, as long as you can recognize and re-enter 
    them if you have to.
    
    Man, Man, Cat, Man		- the Golden Pavilion, first door 
    
    Now you’ll see the real method of the game: beat the level within 
    each door in the Golden Pavilion to open/reach the next door.  
    You’ll hear a monkey (Brutus) screech in the background.  That’s 
    always a sign you’ll meet up with him later, and he’s a pain.  For 
    right now, walk right and jump onto the tree ledge quickly.  If 
    you’re not quick enough, Brutus will jump on you and hurt you.  
    You can’t outrun him.  If you get to the ledge he’ll just jump 
    around under you.  Jump up and right to meet your next foe: the 
    crow.  They fly at you out of nowhere, and for right now you’ll 
    just have to jump up or down to avoid them.  Jump right, get a 
    life, and meet Twyla.  You don’t have to do anything for her to 
    work, just keep walking right.  Fall off the ledge on purpose, 
    and you’ll see Twyla chase him away.  He’s gone for good.  Find 
    the lowest ledge, and jump up onto the next ones until you reach 
    the top ledge.  Then walk right and jump onto the far ledge.  
    Enter the doorway.
    
    Walk right and onto the stairs.  You’re next enemies are beetles.  
    They’re just like ants, only easier to jump over.  To be safe, wait 
    on the stairs till it’s gone, then jump up and left onto the ledge.  
    Follow the ledges up to the top, then walk right.  Watch out for the 
    crow and ants.  At the end of this ledge you’ll encounter an evil 
    little bluebird.  It’s just like a crow, except he flies in a 
    straight line.  Jump up and right to reach the far ledge.  If you 
    fall, you’ll meet the sadistic ladybug.  You’ll hear it even if you 
    don’t fall.  It gets more excited the closer you are, and will jump 
    around trying to hurt you.  You can outrun or jump over it till you 
    reach a low ledge.  Then jump up and continue to the doorway.
    
    Use the ledge to the right to jump (right) over the ants.  If you’re 
    not sure where they are, press the L and arrow buttons together to 
    look around.  Go down the steps, jump the crow, and jump right again 
    over the cricket onto the steps.  Crickets act just like ladybugs.  
    At the bottom of these steps you’ll find the triplets, Janessa, 
    Kathleen and Lacey.  Their dancing shoes, which appear in yellow 
    above you, come with a butterfly net.  As long as your wearing the 
    green-and-yellow dress, you can press the B button to swing the net 
    and get rid of pests.  You can jump and swing at the same time.  Use 
    this new skill to get up onto the next ledges safely.  The net knocks 
    away everything but vases, and Brutus (and spiders, pink plants and 
    ferns, but those come later).  Jump right onto the far ledge, walk 
    right, and go through the doorway.
    
    Brunette, Blonde, Man, Blond	- first door, level 2
    
    Walk right and jump onto the first ledge.  If you fall at any time, 
    you can walk back and start over from here.  Jump up and left, then up 
    and right, then walk right and down onto the next ledges.  Jump up and 
    right, up and left, and up and right again.  Watch out for falling 
    vases!  Walk right, jump down, and walk right until you reach the 
    doorway.  Kill the ladybug before trying to enter it.  The vases can 
    hurt you even if you’ve already pressed Up.
    
    Walk right, and you’ll see a big blue spider.  They crawl around 
    under ledges and try to descend on you as you pass under them.  
    The butterfly net won’t work against them, but they can’t catch 
    you unless you stop.  Jump up and right onto the first ledge, then 
    up and left twice.  Walk left and jump onto the tree ledge with the 
    ant.  Jump up left, up right and up right to get to the top tree 
    ledge.  Keep walking and jumping right till you reach the ledge with 
    the free life.  Fall down onto the ledge with the pink toothy plant.
    You can walk through it only when it’s curled down.  Walk left off 
    two ledges, then walk right and you’ll see a fern.  Their purpose 
    is to slow you down so the spiders can catch you.  If you get caught 
    it one, the only way to escape is hold down the left or right arrow 
    key until it lets you go, so it’s best to jump over it.  Fall down, 
    walk left, and go through the doorway.
    
    Timing is important in this part, so don’t rush.  Walk left and 
    down lots of stairs.  Walk past three pink plants and jump up two 
    ledges.  Walk left, avoid a fern and spider, and jump up left, up 
    right and walk right.  Jump up two ledges, kill a crow, and jump 
    up three more tree ledges.  Go left  until you reach another 
    ledge with a free life.  Fall down and left two ledges, but watch 
    out for the ladybugs!  Jump up some more until you see two tree 
    ledges above you, one on the left with a beetle, and a little 
    one on the right.  The one on the right leads you to Felix and 
    the first mini-game (Butterfly Catch).  The left ledge leads you 
    past Brutus and to the next doorway.  
    
    If you go right, keep walking and jumping right until you see 
    Felix on his perch.  Talk to him, then go through the doorway.  
    
    Butterfly Catch
    The object is to catch all the butterflies with your net.  In the 
    screen’s top right corner is a butterfly counter, which counts down 
    the number of butterflies left to catch.  Level 1 has fourteen 
    butterflies to catch, and Level 2 has sixteen.  Each time you pass 
    a shaking bush, even if you only jump by it, a butterfly will fly out.  
    It will flutter back and forth slowly upward, so if you don’t swipe 
    it up quickly it will get out of reach.  For best results, swipe twice 
    in quick succession, especially after a jump.  Once you pass a bush 
    it will stop shaking.  You may have to backtrack or jump on ledges to 
    find all the bushes.
    
    When you finish the mini-game, you’ll be back in your original 
    pink dress.  Press R to switch to the yellow shoes and be able 
    to use the butterfly net again.  Otherwise, jump and walk left, 
    let Twyla chase away Brutus, and keep going until you get to the 
    next doorway.  
    
    Brunette, Shoes, Monkey, Shoes	- second door
    
    Now you’re inside again.  Put on the yellow shoes just to be 
    safe.  Jump up and right till you reach the ledge with the cupid 
    statue.  If you fall, you’ll meet a new enemy: the possessed tea 
    kettle.  It floats around your head, and will pour green tea on 
    you if it catches you.  You can either use the butterfly net to 
    knock it away, or walk by it quickly.  Keep jumping right till 
    you get to the far ledge.  (The portrait of the woman in purple 
    is of the princess’s mother, Isabella.)  Walk right and go 
    through the doorway.    
    
    Walk right and down a long stairway.  Avoid a tea kettle, and 
    at the far right, jump up seven ledges till you see the doorway 
    on the far right ledge.  Jump right onto it, watch out for the 
    vase, and walk through the doorway.  
    
    Jump up the four ledges on your left, then jump right onto the 
    top of the chandelier.  Avoid the spiders, and keep jumping right 
    until you get to the doorway at the far right ledge.
    
    Blonde, Blonde, Cat, Brunette	- second door, level 2
    
    Jump up and right two ledges, then right onto the far ledge.  
    Avoid the spiders, and keep jumping up until you jump right onto 
    another far ledge.  Go down the stairs.  Don’t fall off!  If you 
    do, you’ll meet Brutus at the bottom without Twyla to chase him 
    away, and you’ll have to jump up onto a ledge to escape him.  
    Instead, when you reach the end of the stairs, jump right to 
    land on a ledge safely above him.  Jump up and right to reach the 
    far ledge.  When you reach it, you an either go straight to the 
    doorway, or keep jumping up to a ledge with a free life first, 
    then fall onto the far ledge.  Either way, go through the doorway.  
    
    Go up the stairs, kill the ants, and jump up three ledges.  Avoid 
    the spider, and jump right across the chandeliers.  Fall off the 
    last one and go through the doorway below it.  
    
    Walk right, and here you’ll meet the twins, Hadley and Isla.  
    They’ll give you a new pair of shoes that will help you walk across 
    pits on stilts when the right sign is present.  The new shoes are 
    green, and the new dress is light blue and purple.  To use the new 
    shoes, make sure the green ones are above you and the pink picture 
    of a princess on stilts is posted on the ledge, and simply keep 
    walking when the ledge ends.  Walk to the far right, then jump up 
    and left until you see a rat on the ledge to your left.  Switch to 
    yellow shoes to kill it with the butterfly net, then switch back to 
    green shoes.  Keep jumping up and right, over the next rat, and onto 
    the chandeliers.  You’ll get a free life, and after the second 
    chandelier, fall down and right twice to reach the next doorway. 
    
    Next you’ll meet the first of three villains: Fabian the Apothecary.  
    He’ll start as soon as you move.  The object is to hit the potions 
    he throws with your butterfly net so he’ll hurt himself on the 
    broken glass.  While he jumps around in pain, or right after you’re 
    injured, you can pass him safely as he runs to the other side.  
    Watch your distance and timing.  He’ll start with one potion, then 
    throw two at a time.  You can jump over a broken potion if you have 
    to.  The vertical meter on the right tells you how injured he is.
    It takes four injuries to defeat him. 
    
    Parrot, Cat, Cat, Parrot	- third door (green shoes needed)
    
    This part is tricky because of all the backtracking.  Jump up two 
    platforms, then left, then up two more, then right.  You’ll 
    steadily descend then ascend, but keep going right till you reach 
    the open door. 
    
    Don’t go right!  If you fall at any time, you’ll have walk all the 
    way back here.  Jump up till you reach the top level.  Drop down to 
    get a heart, then jump right and avoid the spider.  Jump up three 
    levels, go right, use the stilts, jump a gap, and jump up three 
    levels to reach the open door.
    
    Walk right, use the stilts, jump over the crow, and keep walking 
    right.  You’ll meet the next new foe: the guard.  You can’t defeat 
    him, only avoid or jump over him (and jumping over him just right 
    is hard).  You’re best bet will always be to jump up a level to 
    avoid him.  Here, keep jumping up and left till the crow flies at 
    you.  Jump over the crow, then go left.  Don’t jump right.  Keep 
    walking and jumping left.  Go slow the first time, or the crows 
    will sneak up on you.  When you see the spider, it’s time to jump 
    up and start walking right again.  See? I told you there’s a lot 
    of backtracking.  Use the stilts, and keep walking right.  After
    the first time you have to jump right, you’ll see a gap.  Don’t jump.  
    Fall off the right edge, then jump up.  After that, jump 
    up and right till you reach the open door.
    
    Man, Blonde, Brunette, Man		- third door, level 2
    
    Make sure you’re in green shoes, then keep jumping off the right 
    ledges.  You’ll fall to the very bottom level.  Keep walking right, 
    even across pits.  You’ll have to jump over a guard and avoid tea 
    kettles.  When you get to the far right, jump up the ledges to Twyla 
    and the open door.  You might want to change into yellow shoes to 
    kill a rat on one of the ledges, since it’s hard to avoid.
    
    In yellow shoes, jump up the ledges to the top level.  You’ll 
    encounter a rat, crow, and falling vase on the way.  In green shoes, 
    walk right, jump over a guard, and walk right.  Jump off the right 
    ledge, then the next one, to land on stilts at the bottom level.  
    Walk right, avoid a tea kettle, and jump up the ledges and to the 
    left.  You’ll have to watch out for the spider and Brutus at the top.  
    Time your ascents carefully there.  Twyla will chase off Brutus if you 
    don’t run into him first, then jump up and walk left to the open door.
    
    In green shoes, walk right and avoid a tea kettle to meet the next 
    two sisters: Edeline and Fallon.  They’ll give you purple dancing 
    shoes (purple dress), which will let you make a ribbon staircase 
    when the right sign appears.  For now, go back to green shoes.  
    Walk right and jump up the ledges.  You might want to change into 
    yellow shoes to kill a rat on one of the ledges, since it’s hard to 
    avoid.  Jump and walk left as far as you can, then jump up, right a 
    little, and up some more.  Avoid a spider, and use the green shoes 
    to walk right.  Jump and walk right, and Twyla will chase away Brutus 
    right before you reach the open door.  
    Man, Cat, Shoes, Brunette	- fourth door (purple shoes needed)
    
    At the sign, use the purple shoes to make your first ribbon staircase.
    Pillars make rats hard to see on this level, so watch out.
    
    Walk up it to get to the next door.  In yellow shoes, walk right, 
    kill a rat, and jump back and forth to higher ledges.  Jump over a 
    crow, jump up some more, and eventually walk left.  At the far left, 
    jump up, kill a rat to your left, then jump up and kill another rat 
    on the next left ledge.  Jump and walk right to reach the open door.
    Avoid a tea kettle.
    
    Walk left, jump over a vine trap, and walk left.  At the edge, jump 
    left and you’ll land on a lower ledge.  Jump up, walk left and kill 
    a rat.  Then jump up, walk right and kill a rat.Walk right, kill a 
    crow, and avoid a vine trap.  Jump up and left, and avoid a couple tea 
    kettles.  You can jump onto gargoyle heads if the jump looks too far.
    Jump left to reach the open door.
    
    Walk left, jump two ledges, kill the rat, and jump up another ledge.  
    Use the purple shoes to go up the ribbon to your left.  Jump up, use 
    the green shoes to cross the two gaps to the right, and walk right.
    Avoid a tea kettle, crow and vine all at once.  Jump up two ledges 
    and walk right.  Jump right onto another ledge, then jump up, left 
    and up again.  Walk left, jump up twice.  Jump right, walk right and 
    jump up.  Jump left and right onto short ledges to reach the open door.
    
    Shoes, Shoes, Brunette, Man	- fourth door, level 2
    
    Use yellow shoes first.  Walk right, kill two rats, and jump right 
    at the ledge’s end.  Kill a tea kettle, and jump right.  Jump up, 
    jump right, then jump left and jump up.  Kill another rat, and walk 
    left.  Jump up, avoid a crow, and use the purple shoes to walk right.  
    Jump up, right and left.  Walk left, and avoid a tea kettle.  Keep 
    going left.  At the end of the ledge, get to the very edge and jump 
    fall left into a fern.  You’ll have to walk right to get out of 
    it, then jump over it and to the left.  Use the purple shoes to 
    walk left.  Change to yellow shoes while on the ribbon, and kill 
    a rat on the next ledge.  Walk left, jump up, and use the purple 
    shoes to walk right.  Wait till the vase falls, then jump up.  Jump 
    left.  Jump left to reach the open door.
    
    In yellow shoes, walk left, kill a rat, and jump up twice.  To 
    reach the mini-game, jump down and right off the ledge with the 
    ribbon sign.  You’ll land on a ledge with a pink button on the 
    floor.  Jump on it, and a bridge will swing up to your right.  
    Walk across it, jump on another button, and walk right till you 
    talk to Felix.  Enter the doorway to your right to start the 
    ribbon race mini-game.
    
    Ribbon Race
    The object of this mini-game is to use the purple shoes to reach 
    the doorway at the top before time runs out.  As you ascend, the 
    screen will slowly move up with you.  It will start moving as soon 
    as you do.  If you’re at the bottom of the screen when it moves up, 
    you’ll “faint” and have to start over.  You can’t change out of 
    purple shoes here.  There are two levels, and the best advice is 
    to stay as high as you can.  Remember, you can jump onto gargoyle 
    heads on the castle walls as well as ledges.  You can still direct 
    Barbie even if you can’t see her.  There are no critters or possessed 
    objects in the mini-game.  There will be some backtracking and 
    close-calls, but that extra heart is worth it!  To get back to 
    playing after the mini-game, just fall off the left.  You’ll land 
    on a walkway.  Keep walking left, and you’ll pass the (closed) 
    doorway from which you started.  In yellow shoes, walk left, kill 
    a rat, and jump up twice.
    
    Otherwise, use the purple shoes to walk right.  Walk right, avoid 
    the fern and jump up.  Jump left, then right, then use the purple 
    shoes to walk right.  Walk right, avoid a spider, and jump right.  
    Use the purple shoes to walk right, and change to yellow shoes.  
    Jump up, kill a rat, and walk left.  Again, jump up twice and use 
    the purple shoes to walk right.  Walk right, avoid a vase and tea 
    kettle, and use the purple shoes to walk right.  Avoid a rat and 
    jump up to reach the open door.
    
    Keep walking right to meet the next two sisters, Edeline and Delia.  
    They’ll give you their pink dancing shoes and croquet mallet.  (The 
    new dress is light pink and white.)  To use it, press B and you’ll 
    see a white flashing line going up from the mallet.  That’s the way 
    the ball will go.  Press B again to hit the ball.  Press A to quit 
    trying to use the mallet.  You’ll use these shoes later to make the 
    ball hit certain levers when you see the orange croquet sign.  It may 
    take you a few tries to get accurate.
    
    For now, change back to yellow shoes, and jump over ledges to keep 
    walking right.  Kill a rat, and fall off the right edge.  Change to 
    green shoes, walk left, and fall off the left edge.  At the bottom 
    you’ll see a fern.  Avoid it, and use the stilts to walk left over 
    two gaps.  Jump up, jump left, and use the ribbon to walk left, then 
    use it to walk right.  Be careful: you can’t move while unfurling the 
    ribbon, so the tea kettle may get you if you’re not quick (or don’t 
    change shoes quickly to kill it).  Jump right, jump up, walk right, 
    and jump up again.  Jump right, walk right, avoid a tea kettle, and 
    jump right off the ledge, but not too far!  If you overshoot it, 
    you’ll be back to using stilts.  You should fall onto the top of a 
    small tower.  Jump down and left, avoid a crow, and you should see the 
    open door on the next ledge to the left.  Jump down to it.  If you 
    fall on a different ledge, just keep jumping left (or use the ribbon) 
    to get to the open door.  
    
    Here you’ll meet your second nemesis: the big soldier, or gladiator.
    You can’t change shoes on this part.  You can, however, avoid him by 
    jumping over him, or onto one of the two ledges above him.  To beat this 
    guy, you have to stand at either the far right or left end, and wait for 
    him to charge you.  He’ll put up his shield to charge.  Wait till the 
    last second, and jump up and right/left over him and/or onto a ledge.  
    Hopefully he’ll miss you and crash into the wall, hurting himself.  The 
    good news is, even if he gets you, he’ll still crash.  You can pass him 
    safely right after either of you is injured.  The vertical bar on the 
    right shows how much life he has left.  You have to do this successfully 
    five times to beat him.
    
    Man, Man, Cat, Blonde	- fifth door (pink shoes needed)
    
    Fall off the right ledge, and use the croquet mallet for the first time.  
    Enter the next doorway.
    
    Go up the stairs, wait on them for the guard to walk away, then 
    jump up and left onto the ledge.  Jump up four more ledges, then 
    once more onto the ceiling ledge.  Walk right and you’ll see a spider 
    beneath you.  It can’t hurt you.  When you get to the end, don’t jump off, 
    or you’ll fall into a pink plant.  Press A and Down at the same 
    time to fall straight down, then pass the plant while it’s curled up.
    Walk right till you see a guard, then jump onto the lowest bookshelf.
    You might want to switch to yellow shoes to kill the ants on one shelf.
    Jump up and left onto the next five bookshelves, then up and left up 
    two ledges.  Jump up and right, then down and right onto the ledge 
    with the vine.  Avoid the spider and tea kettle.  Pass the vine, and 
    jump up and right three ledges.  When you see the ceiling ledge, wait 
    for the spider to move before jumping onto it.  There are two ledges 
    on this part of the ceiling you can use to avoid the spiders, so jump 
    up and fall down as needed.  You can only fall down one ledge at a time.
    Walk right, and when you get to the ledges’ end, drop down all the way, 
    and go through the doorway.
    
    Walk right, drop off the edge, and keep walking right.  You’ll 
    walk between some bookshelves.  Avoid the guard, and jump up them 
    to the right four times, then back to the left another four times 
    till you reach the ledge.  Use yellow shoes for the ants.  After you 
    reach the ledge, you’ll jump right across a bunch of short ledges 
    till you reach the one with the doorway.  Wait till the spider moves 
    before entering.
    
    Walk right, and avoid two pink vines and a guard at the end.  
    Starting at the far right, use the ledges and bookshelves to 
    jump up and left.  Watch out for falling vases and tea kettles.  
    Finally you’ll reach a tall bookshelf to your left.  Go ahead and 
    jump onto it, even though you can’t see the top.  The ledge is in 
    it’s middle.  Then jump up and right until you use your purple 
    shoes twice in a row to walk right.  Jump up the ledges, avoid a 
    vine, spider and vase, and jump left across several short ledges.
    Pass the vine, and keep jumping left.  You might want yellow shoes 
    for a tea kettle.  Use your purple shoes to walk left, jump up, and 
    talk to the next sister, Courtney.  She’ll give you her blue dancing 
    shoes, which come with a blue dress and stack of books.  These shoes 
    provide a stack of books when you press B that you can jump onto to 
    reach higher ledges.  Walk left, and enter the doorway.
    
    Brunette, Blonde, Cat, Brunette	- fifth door, level 2
    
    Walk to the far right, and jump over the guard onto the ledge.  
    Jump left and up onto a series of short ledges.  Avoid a vine and 
    spider to reach the ceiling ledge.  Walk and jump right, then 
    jump up and right onto ledges and bookshelves.  Avoid the tea 
    kettles.  When the last ledge runs out, fall off and walk right 
    down the staircase.  Keep walking right, but avoid the vase and 
    spider.  Before the vine on the far right, jump up and left three 
    bookshelves.  Before jumping up and right, wait for the spider to 
    move.  You’ll see the doorway above you and to the right, but you 
    can’t reach it yet.  Instead, avoid the spider and jump up onto 
    the two ledges to your left.  Jump up onto the ceiling ledge and 
    walk to the far right.  Enter the doorway.
    
    Don’t go down the stairs.  Jump up and right onto the ledges.  When 
    you reach the ceiling ledge, use the blue shoes to jump onto the 
    ledge with Felix on it.  As he’ll tell you, the doorway leads to the 
    third and final mini-game: the Book Challenge.  
    
    Book Challenge
    The object of this mini-game is to reach the doorway before time runs 
    out.  The time counts down at the top right corner.  Each level starts 
    at 1:45.  Use the B button to pick up the stack of books already there.
    When you pick up a stack, it shows up under the timer.  You can only 
    pick up one at a time, so you’ll have to backtrack a lot between 
    dropping off and picking up books.  
    
    There are three ways to get to the doorway.  The fastest and easiest 
    is to follow the ceiling ledge below and to the right of the mini-game 
    door, then take a flying jump to the right.  You can also either drop 
    off the right edge of the highest ceiling ledge, or jump off it onto 
    several small ledges and bookshelves, and use walk up the stairs to your 
    left.  
    
    Walk right, and jump (not drop) off the edge.  Avoid the carnivorous 
    plant, and use the blue shoes to jump onto the right ledge.  Walk 
    right, and do the same thing again, only avoid ants this time.  Avoid 
    the carnivorous plant, and drop (don’t jump) off the next right ledge.
    Avoid another carnivorous plant, and jump onto a bookshelf to avoid a 
    guard.  Watch out for ants, spiders and tea kettles, and jump right, 
    then left up the bookshelves.  From the last ledge, jump onto the 
    ceiling ledge and walk left till you reach the doorway.  Watch out for 
    a spider.  
    
    Blonde, Man, Duchess, Man	- sixth door (blue shoes needed)
    
    Use the blue shoes to jump onto the right ledge, then jump off it and 
    enter the last doorway.
    
    Yay!  New scenery!  Welcome to the stables and grounds.  You’ll want 
    yellow shoes for all the pests.  Walk right, and fall down a series 
    of ledges.  Walk right, use the blue shoes, and keep walking right.  
    At the far end, jump up two ledges, and use your purple shoes to go 
    right.  Jump onto the next right ledge, go up the stairs and through 
    the doorway.
    
    Watch out for the crow and spider, and use the blue shoes to jump 
    up two ledges.  Walk right, go down the stairs, and use your green 
    shoes for the first time in a long time to cross a chasm.  Use your 
    yellow shoes to kill the ant parade and crow, then green shoes again.
    Walk right, up the stairs, and kill the rat on the ledges above you 
    on the left.  Jump up three ledges, and enter the doorway on your left.
    
    Kill the rat on the ledge, then jump up and use the purple shoes to 
    go left.  Wait for the spider to move, and jump down and left onto 
    the next ledge.  Avoid a crow, and jump all the way down.  Walk left 
    and greet your next sister, Brianna (Blair in the movie).  She’ll give 
    you her red dancing shoes and a red-and-white dress to match.  When 
    you see the sign beside Brianna, press B and the Right or Left arrow 
    button at the same time to run extra fast across (usually to cross 
    bridges that fall out from under you).  You get to use this move right 
    away to go left across two bridges.  There are ants on the grass between 
    the bridges.  Go left, up the stairs, and use the blue shoes to jump up 
    onto the next ledge.  Use the purple shoes to go right, but switch to 
    yellow shoes on the ribbon to kill the rat on the next ledge.  Walk 
    right, and go through the doorway.
    
    Blonde, Brunette, Blonde, Blonde	- sixth door, level 2
    
    Walk left, up the stairs, and avoid a crow.  Use your new red shoes 
    to cross a bridge, then walk down the stairs to your left. Jump up 
    two ledges, and use the purple shoes to go right.  At the ledge’s 
    end, avoid a crow and rat, and use the blue shoes twice to keep 
    jumping up.  At the top, use the red shoes to run right.  Avoid a 
    crow and spider, and jump right onto the ledge with the red shoe sign.  
    Run right, and enter the doorway.
    
    Walk left, and jump up and left twice.  Use the purple shoes to 
    go right, then again to go left.  Use the blue shoes twice to keep 
    jumping up, then jump right till you reach the red shoe sign.  Avoid 
    a crow, and run right.  Avoid a spider and rat, fall or jump off 
    the far right edge, and walk left to the doorway.  
    
    Walk left, down the stairs, and use the purple shoes to go left.  
    Fall or jump down three ledges, and from here there are two ways 
    to reach the doorway.  The easiest is to walk all the way left, 
    fall off the roof, avoid a crow, and enter the doorway on your right.
    The longer way is to fall or jump of the right ledge, walk left, and 
    use your red shoes to run left across two bridges to the doorway.
    
    Now you’ll face your third foe (and last before Rowena): Desmond.  
    His health meter is the vertical pink bar on the screen’s right edge.  
    You can’t change out of your light pink shoes here.  Desmond will walk 
    back and forth, and sometimes stomp to make crates fall from the 
    ceiling.  If he or the crates touch you, you get hurt.  You have to aim 
    your croquet ball so it knocks a crate onto Desmond’s head.    He will 
    also pick up the fallen crates to hurl at you.  While he’s doing this, 
    he’s standing still long enough for you to get a hit (if he doesn’t hit 
    you first).  You can’t move while you’re aiming the croquet ball.  Three 
    times will defeat him.
    
    Cat, Blonde, Duchess, Brunette	- sixth door, level 3
    
    Enter the clock tower.  First, jump up onto the moving ledge, then 
    up onto the stationary one above it.  Jump right onto the next 
    moving ledge.  Jump up onto the stationary ledge.  If you fall, you 
    can use the green shoes to walk left across the chasm and start over.  
    When you reach see the lever in the top right, use the light pink 
    shoes to hit it and start the ledge to the left moving.  Get on it, 
    and at the top jump up and left onto the stationary ledge.  Jump right 
    onto the next moving ledge.  
    
    When it takes you to the far right, jump onto the wall ledge.  Jump 
    up, walk right, and jump right onto the moving ledge.  At its end, 
    jump onto the small stationary ledge, then right onto the next 
    moving ledge.  At the end of this ledge, you can jump right to get 
    a heart, or up to the ledge with the ribbon sign.  Use the purple 
    shoes to walk left, then jump right twice onto a moving ledge.  
    Jump right onto the wall ledge, and use the red shoes to make a 
    running jump onto the far right ledge (there’s no sign here).  Use 
    the shoes on the next ledge where there is a sign to run right 
    across the bridge.  If you fall, use the green shoes to walk left 
    across the chasm, then the light pink shoes to hit the lever.  The 
    lever will drop a bridge, which you can use to jump onto the moving 
    ledge that will take you back up.  
    
    Keep going right until you see the ribbon sign.  Use the purple 
    shoes to walk right.  At the top, use the blue shoes to drop books 
    onto the pink button and start the ledge below moving.  Jump onto 
    it, then drop off at the end onto the left stationary ledge.  Wait 
    for the ledge below it to the right to come, then jump onto it.  
    If you fall, you can use the green shoes to walk left across the 
    chasms.  There’s a heart at the far left, and between the two chasms 
    is a moving ledge you can jump onto to take you up.  
    
    At its top, just jump up and to the left to get back to the 
    ledge moving right.  When you see the lever, jump onto the 
    stationary ledge below it, and use the light pink shoes to hit 
    it.  A bridge will drop down, and you can walk across it to the 
    right.  Jump up onto the ledge with the ribbon sign, and use 
    the purple shoes to walk left, then right.  Jump right onto the 
    wall ledge, then right onto a moving ledge.  At the end, drop 
    onto a small stationary ledge, and wait for the next moving ledge 
    on the right.  
    
    Drop onto it, and then drop onto the stationary ledge at the 
    bottom.  Use the blue shoes to jump onto the next ledge to the 
    right.  Keep jumping up until you reach the ledge with the 
    ribbon sign.  Use the purple shoes to walk left onto a moving 
    ledge.  Jump up twice, and use the red shoes make a running jump 
    to the right.  Use the blue shoes twice to jump up onto the next 
    wall ledges and reach the doorway.    
    
    Hall of Mirrors
    
    Enter the Hall of Mirrors, the longest and weirdest level by 
    far.  As you walk right, you’ll see your reflection in the 
    mirrors on the wall behind you.  In the third mirror, you’ll 
    see the reflection of a ledge, with no real ledge in front of 
    you. Jump up, and you’ll see the reflection jump onto the ledge, 
    while the in-color you is standing on nothing.  Get used to it.  
    Avoid a guard, and keep going right.  
    
    Jump down two ledges to the right, and use the green shoes to 
    walk right.  Use the blue shoes to reach the next ledge, then 
    jump down onto the floor ledge.  Jump up twice, and use the 
    purple shoes to walk left.  Use the blue shoes to drop books 
    onto the pink button to your left, and jump onto the resulting 
    bridge.  Jump left, and walk all the way to your left.  Jump up 
    and use the purple shoes to walk right.  Use the red shoes to 
    make a running jump left.  Walk left, and use the blue shoes to 
    drop books on the pink button on the floor.  Then stand a few 
    paces to the button’s left, and use  the light pink shoes to hit 
    the lever above you and to the right (it’s out of sight unless 
    you use the L and arrow keys to see it).  
    
    Jump onto the bridge that falls down when you hit the lever, 
    and jump up again.  Step on the button to the left, and walk 
    right over the resulting bridge.  Use the light pink shoes to 
    hit another lever just like the previous one.  Jump up, and 
    walk left over the resulting bridge.  Before the end, jump left 
    onto the ledge and keep walking left.  Use the purple ribbon 
    to walk left, then right.  Use the red shoes to make a running 
    jump left.  Drop left off the ledge, but watch out for the 
    guard below.  There’s a ledge halfway over you can use to avoid 
    him.  Keep walking left, and at the end jump up twice.  Jump 
    right, and use the light pink shoes to hit a lever above and 
    to the left.  
    
    Use the blue shoes to stack books at the end of the ledge, then 
    jump up onto the bridge.  Jump up, and use the purple shoes to 
    walk right.  Jump right twice, and at the end you’ll see a 
    running sign.  Use the red shoes to run right, but halfway 
    through you’ll have to jump a ledge and keep running.  If you 
    miss, the bridge will fall away before you can catch up, and 
    you’ll have to jump up from the floor level and try again.  This 
    happens twice in a row.  Afterwards, jump right, and use the 
    purple shoes to walk right.  Use the blue shoes when necessary 
    to jump up several ledges.  At the top you’ll see a walled-in 
    ledge.  Jump up three of them and you’ll be on a floor with a 
    patrolling guard.  You can use the A and down arrow buttons to 
    fall down a ledge and avoid him.  
    
    Walk left, and jump or fall straight down.  Walk left and you’ll 
    need the green shoes to keep going.  If you fall, you’ll have to 
    walk right all the way back, and jump up twice to get back here 
    and try again.  At the next ledge, jump left, and use the purple 
    shoes to go left.  At the top, jump over the gap, don’t just keep 
    walking.  Use the purple shoes again to walk left.  Jump left 
    three times, and use the light pink shoes to hit the lever up and 
    to your left.  Walk left across the resulting bridge, and jump 
    down and left.  Walk all the way left, and use the A and down 
    arrow buttons together to fall down the small, walled-in ledges.  
    Enter the doorway on the right.  
    
    Facing Rowena
    
    After the spiel, the bridges will collapse under you and you’ll fall 
    to the bottom level.  Quickly change to yellow shoes, and knock out 
    the possessed mirrors.  Then use the blue shoes to stack books onto 
    the pink button on the floor.  The bridges will return, and you can 
    jump up to face Rowena (you’ll need the blue shoes again to jump up).  
    Use the light pink shoes to hit the lever up and to the right to 
    return the bridges.  Go ahead and get into the yellow shoes again.  
    At the top, face Rowena, and use the yellow shoes to knock the silvery 
    gust of magic back at her.  You can also jump over the gusts to avoid 
    them.  She’ll throw a fit, and collapse the bridges again.  You have 
    to hit her three times to defeat her (the pink bar on the screen’s 
    left shows her health status).    If you want to avoid climbing back 
    up every time, just jump onto the ledge below the lever right after 
    you use the yellow shoes.  When the bridges collapse, you can restart 
    from there instead of from the floor (and avoid the floating mirrors).  
    
    Rowena has now magically transported you to honeycomb of small rooms.  
    Watch out for falling vases as you come in and out of doorways.  Enter 
    the doorways in this order: right, left.  Here you’ll meet Twyla.  
    Re-enter that door.  Then go far right, far left, right.  Here Twyla 
    will chase away Brutus.  Go right, and you’ll see Rowena disappear 
    before a half-open doorway to the right.  Enter it.
    
    Rowena’s Last Stand
    
    Get into yellow shoes.  You’ll have to hit the silvery mist back at 
    Rowena three times to defeat her.  Again, the pink bar on the screen’s 
    right shows her health status.  She’ll disappear and reappear either 
    at the top or bottom, left or right of the room.  She may also send 
    floating mirrors (which can float up to the top ledge) or tea kettles 
    at you.  Try to defeat her as quickly as possible, because the she’ll 
    send more and more items and fewer mists at you as time passes.  
    She’ll also send out Brutus at some point, and with no Twyla you’ll 
    have to stay on the top ledges to avoid him.  This means fewer chances 
    at Rowena.  
    
    When you finally defeat Rowena, the whole family gathers in the throne 
    room to celebrate.  From left to right: Brianna (aka Blair), Courtney, 
    Isla, Hadley, Genevieve, King Randolph, Janessa, Kathleen, Lacey, 
    Edeline, Delia, Ashlyn and Fallon.  After the credits, the game will 
    automatically restart.
