1. INTRODUCTION
=====================================================

Hey, what's happening, Cartoon Network video game players? Merit Celaire here 
to give you all the help you need to master one of the greatest games 
developed into the Cartoon Network family of videogames... "Dexter's 
Laboratory: Robot Rampage"! This is my favorite games in my Game Boy Color 
library, and I cannot wait to share with you strategies to give you an 
excellent high score, and more importantly, meet the objective of this game. 
Without further ado, let's move on, starting with the game's story & 
objective, of course, which follows below.

=====================================================
2. STORY/GAME OBJECTIVE
=====================================================

It all begins one day when our boy genius, Dexter gets ready to head into 
his lab and conjure up more amazing inventions. Little did he know that he was 
going to encounter some serious trouble once he set foot inside his top secret 
laboratory that no one knows about (well, except his pesky sister Dee Dee, 
maybe). Dexter has encountered trouble in his lab before, but not in THIS 
magnitude... he immediately noticed that his lab robots were going extremely 
berserk and running all over the place. What's worse is that once the lab 
robots noticed Dexter himself, they all were throwing the works at him 
including attempts to zap him, electrocute him... ANYTHING to give Dexter a 
really bad day... even worse than his feuds with his pesky sister Dee Dee 
playing around with Dexter's equipment. Dexter had to run for his life to 
his computer room in the lab, slam the door shut, lock it, and barricade it 
for fear that the robots will break down the door. Once he turned the 
computer on, Dexter was frantically trying to find out the source of the 
problem why the robots were going crazy. To his shock, even the computer was 
going berserk! "This can't be!" yelled Dexter. "What in the heck is causing 
my computer to go berserk and my robots to go nuts?!?!"

All of a sudden, the image on the monitor slowly turned into the culprit 
responsible for the mess... Mandark! Dexter and Mandark have had countless 
fights in terms of who was the better boy genius, but not like this situation 
that Dexter was in the midst off. "Mandark!!" yelled Dexter. "You've got to 
be the one that caused this chaos... sneaking into my laboratory and messing 
with my robots!"

"Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!! That's right, Dexter!" replied Mandark. "More 
specifically, I've programmed all your robots to destroy your lab! The only 
way to stop this chaos of my own doing is to find certain items around the 
lab, which of course, you'll never find because I've also programmed your 
robots to destroy YOU TOO!!! Ha, ha, ha! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!"

Of course, you all know that when Dexter hears this news, he is now 
completely enraged at this point. He is not going to sit down and watch the 
robots destroy his beloved lab bit by bit. He's going to pull out everything 
he can in his arsenal to fend off the robots, find those crucial items needed 
to save his lab, and ultimately make Mandark pay for infiltrating it. "You 
won't get away with this, Mandark!" screams Dexter as he clears the 
barricades off the door and kicks it open to prepare for the biggest battle 
he's ever going to face. "You will be sorry that you've ever messed with 
Dexter, boy genius!"

=====================================================
3. GAMEPLAY BASICS
=====================================================

If you've ever played the arcade game "Elevator Action", then you'll get 
accustomed to this game very quickly. For those who haven't played that game, 
you'll find that the controls are easy to grasp in this game since the game 
layout/controls are used from the "Elevator Action" game. This is also the 
clue to tell you that in order to find those crucial items, you're going to 
have to use elevators and escalators to arrive at certain floors and find 
those special rooms which have what you're looking for. In this game, there 
are two types of doors as listed below:

STORAGE CLOSET: These are the doors with a window in front of them. Enter 
                these doors to get a different Power-Up (described later) 
                or a Power Cell (for Dexter's heart meter, also will be 
                described later).

LABORATORY CONTROL ROOM: These are the doors with a laboratory flask picture
                         on the front of the door. Enter these doors to find
                         those very important items to advance to new areas.
                         You must find all the Laboratory Control Rooms in 
			 the current scene before your able to make your way 
			 to the scene's exit.

NOTE: To enter these doors, stand on the white stripe and Dexter will
      automatically enter. Then use the Control Pad Left or Right to exit.

Second thing to know about are the types of Power-Ups/Weapons that you're 
able to get in your fight against the robots. Listed below are these 
available Power-Ups:

LASER GUN: Dexter always starts with this when he begins a new scene. It can
           fire only one shot at a time.
LASER MACHINE GUN: Slightly better than the Laser Gun; fires three shots at
                   a time.
PLASMA GUN: The so-called 'silent killer'; once Dexter fires it, all robots
            in front of Dexter will be killed upon impact... the robots
            wouldn't know what hit them! Highly recommended for when the 
	      going gets tough and you're surrounded by a bunch of angry 
            robots.
PLASMA GRENADE: Not as useful compared to the Plasma Gun, but any robot 
                caught in the bomb's radius upon explosion will be knocked 
                out of action.
POWER CELL: Refills a heart in Dexter's overall heart meter. (Note that
            even though you receive a Power Cell upon exiting, you'll still
            come out with the weapon you had last.)

NOTE: Use the B Button to fire, or to throw a grenade (if you have the 
      Plasma Grenade Power Up).

Third thing to know about is how to control Dexter himself, including his 
operation on elevators/escalators. Use this well because your life might 
depend on it to avoid being in the crossfire. The controls are as follows:

CONTROL PAD LEFT/RIGHT: Move Dexter
CONTROL PAD UP/DOWN: Move elevator (make sure Dexter is inside the 
                                    elevator first)
                     Use escalator (make sure Dexter is on the white line
                                    before pressing Up or Down)
CONTROL PAD DOWN: Duck (when you're NOT on an elevator or taking an 
                        escalator)
A BUTTON: Jump
B BUTTON: Fire gun/Throw grenade

NOTE: If you jump toward a robot, you can kill the robot before it fires. 
      Just make sure to avoid the bullets/lasers it shoots. Also, in terms 
      of the elevator shafts, Dexter can also drop down and get on top of 
      the elevators  as well (although he can't control them from that
      position). The only warning is that Dexter cannot drop down more 
      than two floors. If he drops more than two floors, he's finished.

Final thing to know about is the Status Area. Always keep your eyes on it, 
especially in terms of your Heart Meter and the Remaining Vital Items you 
need to find. The Status Area is located on top of the screen and includes 
these things:

     (1) Your Score
     (2) Remaining Lives
     (3) Remaining Items to Find
     (4) Current Power-Up/Weapon
     (5) Heart Meter

SCORE: How many points you have accumulated in the game so far.
REMAINING LIVES: You start off with four lives; earn enough overall points 
                 to gain more.
REMAINING ITEMS TO FIND: The 'items' change as you progress through the 
                         game. However, for each 'scene', you have to find 
                         a certain number of that said item in order for 
                         you to progress. If you have found them all, this
                         part of the status area will change to "OK", which 
                         means it's time to proceed to the exit and get out 
                         of the area. However, if you reach the exit and 
                         still  have items left to find, you'll be thrown to 
                         the Laboratory Control Room furthest from the exit. 
                         Make sure that you get the "OK" on that status area 
                         before attempting to exit.
CURRENT POWER-UP/WEAPON: Self-explanatory, shows which weapon Dexter is
                         currently using. If Dexter enters a Storage Closet 
                         and gets a "Power Cell" for his heart meter, then 
                         he'll keep the weapon he had last before entering 
                         the door.
HEART METER: This is Dexter's health; he has five hearts, but he only starts
             with four at the start of each new scene or when he loses a 
             life. Each time Dexter gets hit, his Heart Meter decreases by 
             one. If his health is completely depleted, he loses a life and 
             restarts at the same place where he lost his last life. Be 
             forewarned, if Dexter falls down more than two floors or gets 
             squashed by one of the elevators, his entire health will be 
             depleted and automatically loses that life.

NOTE: To turn the Status Area off, press SELECT. However, it's highly 
      recommended that you keep the Status Area on ALL the time. It's better 
      that way, and you wouldn't have to wonder how much health Dexter has 
      left before he's fully depleted.

=====================================================
4. GAME LAYOUT
=====================================================

Upon starting the game, you'll be asked which Dexter 'character' would you 
like to be before facing off against the robots. These three characters 
include:

NORMAL DEXTER: Average speed in terms of walking and jumping.
ROBOSUIT 1: Slow walking speed, but fast jumping to get across elevator
            shafts easily and jump over enemy fire.
ROBOSUIT 2: Fast walking speed, but slightly slow jumping; still enough to
            jump across elevator shafts safely.

After choosing which Dexter 'character' is right for you, then the battle 
begins.

The game's layout works like this: There are four overall stages to 
tackle, and each are separated into four "scenes", The first three 'scenes' 
of the stage are item collecting stages -- collect the specified amount of 
items to advance to the next scene. The fourth 'scene' involves no items to 
collect (you'll automatically see "OK" on the Status Area), but requires 
you to get through to the area's exit and face off a bunch of more robots 
in the next room to finish the overall stage.

NOTE: Should you run out of lives and the game ends, you'll be given a 
      chance to continue the game. If you choose to continue, you'll 
      restart at the beginning of the current 'scene', but your score will 
      be reset to zero. At least you're given unlimited chances if you run
      into this situation.

=====================================================
5. ROBOTS/SCORE TABLE
=====================================================

Here's the complete list of robots you'll be dealing with as you guide
Dexter through the lab and the scores you'll get for defeating them:

ROBOT SOLDIERS:
     The 'walker' enemies in this game; they're armed with guns that shoot
     bullets when Dexter is detected. There are many types of them, but
     all have the same purpose... find Dexter and destroy him.
     (100 points)

ROBOT DOGS:
     These robots make an appearance when you start the Stage 2 set.
     Once they spot Dexter, they try to catch him off guard and run
     him over. (150 points)

LASER STEALTHERS:
     These robots appear in the Stage 4 set, they fire a laser once
     Dexter is spotted. Be careful, these lasers they shoot can also go 
     through walls! Four hits should take them down with a Laser Gun
     or a Laser Machine Gun; they are immediately defeated if a Plasma
     Grenade is used on them or shot with a Plasma Gun. (200 points)

Other scoring methods include:
     ITEMS: Every time you enter a Laboratory Control Room and collect
            one of the vital items, you're given 500 points.
     SAME POWER-UP: If you enter a Storage Closet and come out with the
                    same Power-Up that you had before, you're given
                    300 points for your trouble.
     END-OF-SCENE BONUS: Once Dexter reaches the end of the scene, he's
                         awarded a bonus. This bonus starts at 1000 at
                         the start of the game and increases by 1000 as
                         you progress through more scenes. If you
                         "continue" the game, the End-Of-Scene bonus
                         does not reset.
     LIGHTS OUT: If Dexter accidentally hits a light with his gun and
                 the bulb falls, the lights go out for a few seconds.
                 Rumor has it that extra points are given when you
                 defeat the robots during that time... Hmm...
     FINAL BATTLE: Yes, there is a final battle here; but I won't
                   spare the details here. Read the walkthrough to see
                   who you're going to have to face to finish the game.
                   What I can say is that if you are victorious in the
                   battle, 20,000 points is added to your overall
                   score.

Now with all that said and done, it's time to deal with some serious 
business and reclaim Dexter's Laboratory from Mandark's evil grip!

=====================================================
6. WALKTHROUGH: STAGE 1
=====================================================

The battle begins at this point as you help guide Dexter through the
first set of levels. Here, as Mandark stated in the story, you're
going to have to find codes hidden in these scenes to pass this
stage. Let's get to work finding them, shall we?

==================================================

     (7) You'll now enter a 'Robot Invasion' room for Stage 1
         where all the robots you've run into so far will come
         out of the two doors. Consistently fire your laser gun
         at them and dodge their laser gun attacks. Once all
         robots in this room are defeated, you'll automatically
         proceed into the next room to finish this stage.

=====================================================
7. WALKTHROUGH: STAGE 2
=====================================================

Dexter's found part of the code to disable the robots, but this
battle has just begun. Now he has to find another piece of the
code in his mission to save his laboratory and teach Mandark a
lesson he'll never forget. While Dexter's also fending off the
Robot Soldiers in this level, he'll have to watch out for those
Robot Dogs as well; they'll start appearing in this set of
scenes.

==================================================
=  Stage 2, Scene 4  =  NO ITEMS  =  FLOORS: 21  = 
==================================================

PROCEDURE:
     (1) From where you start, take first elevator up to Floor 1.
     (2) Head all the way right; wait for elevator to come down to
         Floor 1; get on it and press Up on the Control Pad until
         you reach Floor 17.
     (3) Head all the way left and take escalator up to Floor 18.
     (4) Head all the way right and take escalator up to Floor 19.
     (5) Head all the way left and take escalator up to Floor 20.

     (7) You'll now enter a 'Robot Invasion' room for Stage 2
         where all the robots you've run into so far will come
         out of the two doors. Use the same attack and dodging
         techniques you did in Stage 1, Scene 4 to eliminate all
         the robots and clear Stage 2.

=====================================================
8. WALKTHROUGH: STAGE 3
=====================================================

Now Mandark's really mad. He now knows that Dexter has found
another piece of the code to disable the robots in the lab.
However, Dexter still has a long way to go because he still has
to find Mandark and bring him to justice once and for all. But
first, he's going to have to find some keys that are scattered in
this set of scenes for Stage 3. And as if that's not enough;
Mandark's even turned up the pressure... now even the ROBOTS are
really mad and are determined to annihilate Dexter... even before
Dexter attempts to turn around and kill them! Dexter had better
turn up the heat himself to get through these set of scenes
in one piece. Do it for your precious lab, Dexter! Oh, and that
Plasma Gun might come in handy as well.

9. WALKTHROUGH: STAGE 4
=====================================================

Now Dexter has reached the final portion of his lab that needs to
be taken care of in terms of finding those items to disable his
robots. Only that there are now three things that stand in his
way between himself and saving his lab: (1) The robots are now
REALLY, REALLY MAD!!! And now, Dexter also has to deal with
Laser Stealther Robots too.(2) Mandark notifies Dexter saying that
he's programmed Dexter's lab to... SELF-DESTRUCT?!?!?!?!
(3) Mandark also tells Dexter that in order to stop the lab from
self-destructing, Dexter must find the discs in these final
set of scenes to disable all of the robots, and go against
Mandark's so-called "Super Robot". Of course, as we all know,
Dexter's anger has reached the boiling point, literally; no one
intimidates Dexter and gets away with it. Bring it on, Mandark!

PROCEDURE:
     (1) Take elevator up to Floor 4.
     (2) Take left escalator up to Floor 5.

And that where the trouble really starts. As soon as Dexter
arrives on this floor, he immediately hears and sees laser gun
shots coming from across his direction. This can only mean one
thing, as the game lets us know immediately... we've run into
MANDARK'S "SUPER ROBOT"!!! But... huh?! This robot is the same
size as Dexter, but this maniac will pack a punch if you're
not careful. This robot will try to zap you, electrocute you,
kick you, stomp you, ram you down, annihilate you... the list 
goes on.

Of course, this even makes Dexter more furious (and now I'm
even more furious at this point). That's it. I'm now sick and
tired of seeing Dexter having to go through all this chaos just
to run into this so-called "Super Robot" that Mandark created
to ultimately annihilate Dexter. Enough's enough; it's payback
time! And here's the procedure to help Dexter make sure that
this maniac goes 'plop!':

     (1) Immediately after the battle begins, quickly take left
         escalators up to Floor 9.
     (2) Take escalators at far right to get down to Floor 7.
     (3) Get on that elevator and stay there.
     (4) Then as the 'Super Robot' comes at your direction or
         attempts to zap you, fire your Laser Gun at it.
     (5) After the 'Super Robot' takes a hit, press Up or Down
         on the Control Pad to make the elevator that Dexter is
         in go up or down, whatever the case may be. This is
         your 'safety approach' so that you won't get your 
         health meter fully depleted by that maniac.

Repeat Steps 4 and 5 as you're battling the 'Super Robot'. Ten
hits will make Mandark's own "Super Robot" go crying to him...
only to go SLAM!!! on the floor after entering, giving Mandark 
the clue that this game is over, and it's time for him to give 
up... as of right now. Dexter's Laboratory has been saved again! 
And now, Dexter has all the vital items needed to disable the 
robots and reprogram them to get everything back to normal 
operation. And Mandark had better learn not to sneak in Dexter's
lab and mess with his robots EVER again.

=====================================================
11. SECRETS
=====================================================

Upon finishing the game, you'll receive this code. The result
is that you're able to play as the "Super Robot" which Dexter
defeated in Stage 4, Scene 4. To activate this, press the A
Button 10 times, then the B Button 10 times, then the Select
Button once. You'll hear a sound confirming successful
entry of the code. Then, when you press Start to select your
character before beginning the game, go all the way left or
all the way right to proceed to the next screen where you'll
be able to play as the "Super Robot". The "Super Robot" walks
fast, and jumps across elevator shafts fast too.

=====================================================

Note that in the walkthrough itself, I have listed the most
obvious routes to take to find the vital items to process from
scene to scene. If you're not able to find them, they might be
located on the opposite side of that said floor. I'll attempt
to created an "Alternate Routes" section on this FAQ on the
next update. If anyone else is willing to assist me in finding
them as well, please don't hesitate to let me know via my
contact information at the bottom of this Gameplay
FAQ/Walkthrough, and I'll add an acknowledgments section on
this FAQ to give you credit for the assistance. Thanks in
advance, all!

And with that, it's time to put this Dexter's Laboratory:
Robot Rampage Gameplay FAQ/Walkthrough to a close. Of course,
if there are any corrections that you see that might need to
be made, please don't hesitate to let me know about it so that
I can make corrections on the next update. Thanks again, all,
and until then, Merit Celaire out.
